Tessa grew up with scissors in her hand. Her father’s salon was a staple of her Missouri community for 25 years, and there she learned the ins and outs of cutting hair to face shape and blending luxurious color highlights. Today she continues her father’s legacy, employing Matrix and American Crew brand products to transform tresses in Genesis Salon. Amid the studio's industrial-inspired décor, she joins four other stylists in crafting contemporary styles designed to work with each client's lifestyle and fashion tastes.
The experienced nail technician at Salon Larissa pampers hands and polishes fingernails in the comfort of a private full-service salon. To begin the 30-minute manicure, a relaxing soak leaves paws softer than a cashmere sweater wrapped around a cloud. The manicurist massages hands with lotion, trims overgrown cuticles, files nails into shape, and artfully applies coats of polish in one of multiple available shades.
Hair Therapy Salon's team of creative, skillful stylists snip, style, shade, and strip hair through a variety of expert services. Put feminine strands in the deft hands of a scissor-maneuvering professional for a stylish ladies' cut and style ($35–$42). Or drag a mangy man mane in for a dapper do-over ($25–$29), complete with an optional steamed towel to relax the face and make it more diet-friendly. Fresh trims are easily snagged for lads and lasses ages 1–12 ($15–$25), and stylish teens and self-conscious collies can drop in for a quick bang or beard trim ($8). For those looking to lacquer locks in a different hue, a single color application ($50–$60+) revamps the entirety of the head's nest, and half-head highlights ($60+) add touches of luster that dance in and out of the hair's natural tint. Firm believers that not all follicles are created equally fashionable, the talented filament tamers also apply their landscaping expertise to more bothersome bristle, waxing away stubble from the brow ($15), lip ($12), or chin ($15) to create sleeker expressions and more easily escapable Halloween masks.
Ron Crider is a licensed massage therapist with practiced hands and a single focus. He conquers stress and tension at The Trove Salon, a hair studio specializing in chic and trendy styling. While his colleagues help The Trove's guests look good, Ron's task is to make them feel good, which he does through Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot stone massages.His Swedish massages use light pressure and long strokes to soothe stress and facilitate all-around relaxation, and deep-tissue massages target specific pains or points of tension. The hot stone massages combine elements of relaxation and deep-tissue massage, resulting in a soothing treatment that loosens the muscles enough to play the limbo against action figures.
The all-lady team at Shear Madness Hair Salon boasts more than two decades of combined experience working in the beauty industry. The successful salon is based upon one fundamental principle: help every client feel more like him- or herself. The stylists carry out that mission by enhancing hair with cuts, styles, and coloring and providing other aesthetic services, including mani-pedis, waxing, and massages. The salon also houses a lineup of beauty products, enabling clients to finally build that shampoo moat around their house.
The stylists at Christina’s Beauty Salon are particularly skilled with scissors, nimbly snipping up stylish hairdos in the blink of an eye. They bustle about their salon, administering professional haircuts and coloring services for men, women, and children. Meanwhile, nail technicians sculpt and paint nails in colorful polishes.
