Beyond the white-picket fence that surrounds the porch of her homey Pace salon, owner Rosalinda Fowell has corralled a selection of spa services, jewelry, and brand-name perfumes. Shellac french manicures and pedicures offer an indulgent way to decorate and protect fingernails, and kids’ mani-pedis give youngsters their first taste of spa life. After enjoying a lavish nail treatment or enduring an eyebrow or lip wax, guests can celebrate their new, chic looks with a new rhinestone bracelet, cocktail ring, or sparkling brooch, or gift themselves a bottle of their favorite fragrance, whether it be Ralph by Ralph Lauren, Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker, or Cheeseburger by John Goodman.
At Elements Salon and Spa, Rob Jernigan not only allows experimentation?he encourages it. He pours his creativity and penchant for color into clients' hair to achieve a range of looks, from playful, classic bobs to long, luscious curls in varied hues. He specializes in color services, texturizing techniques, and keratin smoothing treatments. Regardless of what services he's performing, Rob always relies on professional products, so he sprinkles hair with salon-grade serums from TIGI, including its Bed Head and Catwalk lines.

CoCo & Company Hair Boutique crafts timeless looks with a touch of the unexpected. It starts with the salon's decor, whose pale gray-purple walls are accented by zebra-print workstations, and extends to the salon's work. Vibrant crimson peekaboo highlights peep out from perms' curly ringlets, and pixie cuts and asymmetrical styles accentuate faces. In addition to hair services, CoCo & Company's team of four also waxes away unwanted fuzz and flawlessly applies airbrush makeup.
Led by hairstylist and fashion designer Takayah Norris, the staff at Royalty Hair Palace Salon & Boutique aims to live up to their name, treating all of their clients like queens. They achieve this by approaching beauty from multiple angles: they sculpt stunning hairstyles, professionally apply make-up, summon fresh layers of skin with facials, and stock the racks of their boutique with custom-made clothes and accessories. Therapists also perform deep-tissue, Swedish, sports, shiatsu, and reflexology massages to soothe away any lingering stress spawned from choosing a hair color that best compliments your favorite pair of Groucho glasses.
