Missy Acra first sharpened her shears and her skills at a Regis salon before diving into the fast-paced environment at Great Clips. As each day presented her with a frenzy of new 'dos, she developed a fondness for clippers, razors, and edgy cuts. She took this experience with her to Empire Beauty School, where she spent four years as an instructor, introducing new stylists to the many facets of the salon industry. Missy helped her students hone their skills but realized they still needed guidance after graduation, so she opened M-Salon to give them a head start in the real world.
Today, Missy draws on 10 years of experience to guide her former students as they craft flattering looks and nurture damaged tresses amid steel-blue walls, wooden floors, and shelves lined with products. In addition to hair services, her stylists also beautify nails, wax unwanted fuzz, and design custom wigs with drag-reducing spoilers.
With 37 years of experience to her name, Mitzi Sanders leads the staff at both her Goodlettsville and Gallatin salon locations. Stocked with products from Matrix, Paul Mitchell, and Redkin, the crew goes to work prettying up heads by rendering an extensive selection of tress-focused services. More than just a hair salon, Mitzi's boasts the full spectrum of body-bronzing methods; they offer traditional tanning, spray tans, and giant vats filled with melted butterscotch candy.
Beauty Boutique's clinical aestheticians, armed with products from brands such as ZO Skin Health and SkinCeuticals, unearth naturally radiant rinds with a host of skin services for men and women. An initial analysis zeroes in on epidermal afflictions to rejuvenate visages with a tailored treatment plan and mask. Soothing finger flourishes rain down on necks and shoulders during the 60-minute Beauty Boutique signature facial, which slakes thirsty pores and adjacent cacti while a hydrating treatment washes away deep-rooted pollutants. During the gentlemen's facial, pampering pros treat mugs to mister-specific products designed to ward off ingrown hairs and razor burn. Masculine countenances steep in a luxurious steam before a gentle exfoliation expunges impurities and a shoulder and neck massage relaxes muscles tense from supporting the weight of lead ball caps.
Carolyn Schmitz at Destination Massage & Spa practices massage therapy to complement the staff’s aesthetic services. She can soothe sore flexors and impart a sense of calm during sessions that take as long as a leisurely crabwalk from one end of Rhode Island to the other—60 or 90 minutes. If her clients want services to complement a relaxing massage, Carolyn can direct them to hairstylists, nail technicians, and makeup artists.
