Clients rest In the airy space of Hello Beautiful Salon as a tightly knit team of stylists goes to work on their hair. And while the salon’s vaulted ceiling may get some appreciative glances, it’s the precision cuts, Great Lengths hair extensions, and elegant updos that keep onlookers mesmerized.
Magnolias Salon & Spa’s style-savvy staff proudly pampers men and women with a plethora of head-to-toe services. For a case of excessively shaggy skull fur, guests can enlist an expert stylist to lop off overgrown locks and transform the remainder into an attractive designer ‘do ($25+ for men, $40+ for women) or give it a fresh hue ($50+) and placate previously shameful sandals with a pedicure ($40). Facial façades suffering from fine lines, sun damage, or unwanted aging will find rejuvenating solace in an all-natural, four-step European facial ($85), and a one-hour Swedish massage ($75) relaxes stressed out muscles and sheds spasm-inducing torso tension. Make bothersome body bristles begone with a bevy of waxing services, including eyebrow ($15+) and bikini ($30+), or de-fuzz your back ($60+) to prep for a vacation, a swim race, or a shirtless calendar photo shoot.
A stylist with more than 20 years of experience, Michelle Gilbert expertly tends to hairdos with a variety of services. Using her storied experience—which includes training at the Redken Exchange school in New York City and a stint as a cutting and color instructor—she cuts and styles heads of hair, augmenting strands with deep-conditioning treatments or color services such as partial or full highlights.
Bei capelli is an Italian phrase meaning beautiful hair, and that is exactly what customers have when they leave Tracy Spickard's styling chair. She draws on more than 18 years of experience trimming tresses and uses high-end products from Redken, Goldwell, and Matrix to color and style hair with vibrant highlights or lowlights, multidimensional color, and special-occasion updos.
At Miles Salon and Spray Tan, it’s all about color. The team of stylists and technicians enlivens both hair and hide with professional-grade hues. After styling cuts to suit facial features and personality, they can mist physiques in shades of gold with full-body spray tans. Splashes of artful polish often follow during mani-pedis before a quick waxing evicts unwanted body hair and its dreams of being woven into a shirt.
Reopened in 2010, the Meadowthorpe Cafe is a quaint cafe with maple-colored wood floors, soft yellow walls, and booths constructed from fresh butter. The menu hangs over the cozy dining room, prophesying the day’s offerings of veggie-stuffed omelets, meatloaf, and buttered grits. Meadowthorpe Cafe's signature dish is the bacon, egg, and cheese Spaulding burger, a delicacy book-ended by a freshly-baked Spaulding donut.
