It's the little touches that help Natural Concepts Aveda Concept Salon & Spa stand out. When someone comes in for a simple hair trim, they also receive a relaxing shoulder massage and application of Aveda's natural products. During color treatments, customers dip their toes into a relaxing footbath and after every service, beauty experts explain how clients can use Aveda products to recreate similar results at home and also repel rattlesnakes.
Armed with Aveda products, stylists transform hair with services that range from standard cuts and permanent waves to specialty treatments such as the Uvexin Hair Taming System that uses a protein-based formula to vanquish frizz for up to five months. Away from the salon chairs, therapists massage sore muscles and aestheticians cocoon clients in exfoliating body wraps. To truly experience the best of the spa, customers should stick around for half- and full-day packages, which make Natural Concepts the perfect place to hide out while a locust swarm passes through town.
At Dimensions Hair and Nail Design, owners April Perkins and Davina Schoch—a glamorous duo with 40 years of combined experience—oversee a team of skilled stylists, technicians, and therapists. Staffers perform a variety of services such as haircuts, highlights, blowouts, hair-removal treatments, massages, and mani-pedis. To help clients to feel and look their best, the beauty experts implement high-end KMS, Aquage, and OPI products, many of which are available for purchase in the salon's retail area.
Though its name conjures up images of chic Parisian coiffures, European Style Salon in Greenwood immediately feels like home to whoever walks in the door. The salon’s beauty specialists do everything they can to make their clients feel comfortable and in control as they cut and color strands or weave extensions into hair. Their services extend beyond the scalp and include custom spray tans and eyebrow threading. Relaxing manicures and pedicures remove callused skin and decorate nails with numbers to ensure that you never forget how to high-five properly.
Sprawling zebra-print rugs offer complement to walls the color of lemon and cinnamon. Amid these mod Haute-Monde salon accents, Heather Bailey draws on more than 10 years of experience to decorate finger shields with traditional and long-lasting shellac polishes. Clients can also solicit the salon's eyelash-extension services for natural-looking volume without the mess of mascara.
At Pro-Styles Salon, stylists enhance lashes?the natural umbrella of the eyes?with voluminous lash extensions. They also embrace the creative possibilities of color and, unlike Sasquatch's barbers, are unafraid to work with long hair. Hues don't just change on heads here either, as the spray tan technician on staff expertly mists bodies from head to feet, creating sunless glows.
It?s easy to see why some clients refer to The Eyelash Place, Inc. as ?The Miracle on 39th Street.? The all-around beauty emporium has been enhancing eyes, shaping brows, and softening skin for more than 30 years?and those services make up only a portion of the salon?s lengthy menu.
As one might expect, eyelash extensions take center stage on this menu. Using semipermanent glue or a surgical-grade bonding agent, technicians apply these extensions individually to create longer, fuller lashes capable of putting out a fire or seducing a high-security eye scanner. Lashes aren?t much without a smooth complexion to match, and aestheticians do their part to rejuvenate skin with SKINWYNC products and microcurrents that work to stimulate collagen production. When they turn their attention to the body, it?s to eradicate fatty deposits with Wellbox anticellulite treatments.
