During the past 26 years, Key Hair Designs’ stylists have refined their techniques and trained their eyes to stay up to date with the latest styles and trends. Behind the salon's cottage-style brick façade, the current team of seven stylists clips, cuts, and shapes locks into dazzling hairdos. The staff also includes a nail technician, a certified spray tanner, and a massage therapist who smoothes out knotted muscles before hairs decides to emulate them.
Sun Tan City’s trained tanning consultants help clients get bronzed via UV-free tanning booths and ergonomic tanning beds. Guests can schedule a single visit to touch up an existing tan, purchase a multivisit package to get a discounted rate, or become a member to take advantage of the salon’s 100% guarantee.
• For $12, you get a haircut and style ($17.95 value) and deep-conditioning treatment ($10.95 value; a $28.90 total value). • For $30, you get a haircut and style ($17.95 value), partial highlights ($46 value), and a deep-conditioning treatment ($10.95 value; a $74.90 total value). A full-service salon for the whole family, Fantastic Sams has hair-savvy staff shearers that tame frazzled flax into more maintainable styles. All haircuts start with a soothing shampoo using Fantastic Sams' signature line of products intended to promote hair health and rid the cranium of laser-tag-related stresses. Whether clients plan to consult the stylist about face-flattering looks or replicate the head-hide of a favorite state senator, scissors-wielders snip and style ($17.95) each lock to match the desired look. Deep-conditioning treatments ($10.95) reach into locks’ recesses, infusing follicles with moisture as they wrestle four-square balls from playground bullies. Like a good movie of a classic novel, partial highlights ($46) introduce a subtle new hue but maintain the essence of the original.
