The team members at Coconuts Salon & Barber Shop thinks of hair as a work of art, whether they are etching in a design in men's cuts or sculpting an elegant updo. However, the multicultural salon specializes in barbering, natural-hair services, and children's cuts. The team texturizes and cuts men's hair and complements new looks with edges and shaves. Women's services include relaxers, color rinses, sew-in weaves, and natural-hair services, such as double-strand twists, locs, and microbraids. Even the youngest family members' strands receive the team's attention, as kids' hair is woven into braids or loc cornrows. In addition to hair services, Coconuts offers soothing massages and nail services, which may include detailed nail art.
Six different rooms, six different types of brief vacation. Whether it’s a one-hour getaway to the Bamboo Room for a Swedish massage or a jaunt to the Rain Room for a facial, A Peaceful Rain Day Spa & Salon’s staff treats clients to relaxing trips away from stressors. And it all starts with the sounds of the rainforest that massage eardrums upon entrance. In private Canopy Rooms, meanwhile, stylists carefully craft new hairdos with exquisite cut and color services, which is what precocious children call their work with construction paper.

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.
