Cindy Davis, owner of The Difference Hair Salon, draws on 20 years of experience as she shapes 'dos and leads a small but seasoned staff of two stylists. Cindy's salon has been churning out flattering coiffures since 2004 with cuts, color, highlights, and perms. Her staff also beautifies façades with tanning, waxing, and facials. When they aren't renovating visages, they help clients stay healthy by massaging stressed sinews with cauliflower florets.

The refurbished home lounges so sleepily against the tree-lined property that it is hard not to knock on the door before entering. Inside, though, the salon is wide awake. The walls swell with installments of deep orange and verdigris, which crackle against the dark wooden hair stations and matching mirrors. Chatter drifts from stylists in individual consultations as they prepare to clip, color, treat, or extend tresses with Paul Mitchell and natural Carol's Daughter products.
Quieter still, the throaty rasp of emery boards draws eyes to nail technicians armed with warm oil, paraffin wax, and long-lasting OPI polish. Recognizing that the body deserves coddling too, aestheticians promote circulation with leg massages or improve air circulation by throwing one of the salon chairs through a closed window.
Stylists and aestheticians work side by side at Vintage13 Salon, performing modern techniques in a charming atmosphere that harks back to a bygone era. Soft music plays while mirrors with quaintly scalloped edges provide an old-fashioned frame for hairstyles created with the help of strand-smoothing Brazilian Blowouts or updos fortified with Kenra products. Skincare experts enhance the exfoliating effects of organic and detoxifying facials with a soothing reflexology massage of the face, hand, arms, and décolleté, and also stimulate cell turnover with LED light therapy designed to restore moisture, firmness, and the ability to taste colors.
After treatments, patrons may wind down with one of Vintage13's complimentary mimosas or check out an antique-style chest of drawers bearing handmade jewelry for sale, which credits regular exfoliation for its shiny, ageless finish.
At the Beach Tanning & Nail Spa’s technicians help patrons carve out a little time for self-pampering.
