The stylists at Hair Fiddlers demonstrate a passion for hair not only by listening to clients closely and trying to make them leave with smiles, but also by continuing education and attending hair shows and private classes. Though she’s been hard at work since 1993, one of the stylists, Sandy, continues to sharpen her skills, learning both new techniques and new trends. Inside the intimate boutique, the team applies their knowledge with Keratin Complex smoothing treatments, as well as formal services including wedding styling and coloring. They also perform glossing treatments that create bright shininess in case all your light bulbs burn out and you’d rather just wear a lampshade around the house.
With a slew of hair-centric services, Amie Sedlar of PureBeauty aims to gussy up guests, whether they need a quick trim or a hue overhaul.

Additionally, light waxing services are available, such as brow shaping, and lip and chin waxing.
“C’est la vie” is a French phrase typically used to describe an unfortunate, yet inevitable outcome. The stylists at C'est La Vie Salon flip that phrase on its head, cutting and coloring hair to ensure that their clients never accept lackluster style as just another part of life. In addition to conditioning hair with MoroccanOil treatments and products from Kaaral, Abba, and Silis, the salon’s staff coats nails with chip-resistant CND Shellac polish and brightens skin with 90-minute Eve Taylor facials.

In her more than six years in the industry, aesthetician Lena Golden has earned a loyal customer following as well as an esteemed nickname: the Skin Guru.
