For more than two decades, stylists and beauty experts at Madeleine's Hair & Nail Salon have worked their magic on scalps and skin, beautifying clients with an arsenal of specialized treatments and services. Brazilian keratin treatments turn locks into smooth, glossy tresses, and Featherlocks hair extensions turn hairstyles into statements as bold as wearing a penguin costume to a black-tie ball. Acrylic-nail manicures reward hands for their hard work, and infrared wraps treat the whole body to a slimming, detoxifying hug.
Open since 1982, Bob's Old Fashioned Barbershop is easily distinguished by two exterior barber poles—the first features a traditional glass cylinder, and the second is a two-dimensional sign posted along the front walkway. Although the owner has since retired, Bob left his shop in the capable hands of a team of male and female barbers with several decades of combined expertise. They offer classic men’s and boys’ cuts as well as fades, flattops, and straight-razor shaves.
After Anne Andreasen graduated from Salt Lake Community College in Utah, she embarked on a career as a hairstylist. Now she molds manes in Gainesville at Tangles Salon with haircuts, color, and highlights. She also nourishes strands with keratin-rich conditioners that make tresses as sleek and strong as a dolphin traversing an ocean full of cornstarch. When she isn't sculpting her clients' locks, she crafts wigs out of natural hair for children with cancer.
Natural and organic products help the staff at A Diva’s World create relaxing services. Formaldehyde-free keratin treatments and chemical-free relaxers combine with haircuts and updos for a brand-new style. Raw-sugar-pineapple scrubs and a rose-oil-and-botanical-flower soak soften skin during manicures and pedicures. Custom facials infuse skin with vitamins A, C, and E, and include a complimentary skin analysis and cheek pinch.
Hairstylist Tara Gray, a life-long Gainesville local, gets to know her clients through free consultations before crafting new looks. Inside Accent Styling Salon's small, naturally lit space, she cossets coiffures through services, such as haircuts, highlights, and perms, and can help clients acquire feather extensions without dipping lawn flamingos in Rogaine.
Healthy Hair?s main focus is evident in the salon?s name: to help clients keep their manes in good health. The multicultural salon specializes in reconditioning dried and overly processed hair to restore a healthy sheen and aiding in the regrowth of tresses. Stylists also snip split ends and relax locks before styling hair into classic and modern dos.
