Salon Luxe is a fashion-forward hair salon staffed by a team of hair whisperers who are committed to leaving clients happier than the day they were hatched. Each haircut (a $40+ value) begins with a thorough consultation where hair owner and hair cutter can braid their respective visions into a sleek, intertwined concept. The collaboration results in a pleasing new 'do that is further enhanced with a partial highlight (a $75+ value) or full color (a $55+ value) using natural, 99% plant-derived Aveda products. To complete the look, a deep-conditioning treatment (a $25 value) is richly applied to nourish and moisturize stiff head bristles, leaving them as peppy and bouncy as a cheerleader wearing flubber shoes. The trio of services is performed in the salon's aesthetically pleasing, turquoise-tinted interior that features comfy chairs sprouting from clean wood floors.
Southern Roots Salon is a Eufora-certified salon, offering a wide variety of services to nurture noodle nests of all shapes and styles. Tame wily manes with a men’s ($18), women’s ($25+), or children’s ($13+) haircut, or spruce up lackluster locks with vibrant highlights ($65+). Pesky facial fuzz is eliminated with swiss-chocolate waxing services, available for lips ($9), brows ($11), and chins ($13). To fully freshen frontispieces, opt for a Motives makeup application ($30), which upgrades areas of interest into interesting areas of desire.
The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess. A thorough shampoo and scalp massage ensures an itch-free walk off, while a neck and shoulder massage with steamed towel leaves cleaned-up batters with the zonal focus to connect on any upcoming office pitch.

Dr. Jeffrey A. Jones and his medical aesthetician, Christy, nip, tuck, and tighten bodies with surgical and blade-free procedures at Lakevue Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. They augment and reconstruct breasts, lift faces, and fine-tune noses, or sculpt new physiques with liposuction and Kemper tools. They also shoot down unwanted hairs or tighten slack skin with noninvasive lasers. To further enhance patient comfort, the clinic boasts a special, dimly lit private waiting area for cosmetic clients who may be feeling sensitive after a procedure, as well as a "lidocaine lounge" where patients practice magazine origami while waiting for their numbing solution to take effect.
