Under new ownership since January and braced with a bevy of knowledgeable stylists and staff, Tangles Salon cares for heads from scalp to chin. Coordinate a newly clipped coif with a women’s haircut ($25+) or men’s trim ($15+), or simply slip into a devilish ‘do with the women’s shampoo & style ($25+). For hair punished by the dryness of winter’s cold or humor, conditioning masks donate moisture back to strands to help prevent split ends and damage ($10+). Eyebrows, lips, and chins can experience breezes anew after a gentle waxing treatment (lips/$8+, eyebrows/$12+). Tangles uses Sahag, Suddz, Enjoy, and Matrix products in all its services. Appointments are recommended, but walk-ins are welcome.
With elegant décor and a warm color scheme to back them up, Bloom’s spa specialists excel at comforting hands and feet. Kick back in a plush throne while the trained talon tamers pamper glove- and stocking-stuffers with a spa manicure (a $20 value) and pedicure (a $40 value). The hand-focused half of the mani-pedi nurtures less-than-divine upper digits back to prime dog-petting condition, and the pedicure gussies up lower paws with skin-soothing care as each member of the 10-pronged posse is trimmed, buffed, and shined to stageworthy glory. Palms and soles are softened after hostile calluses and cuticles are exiled from the premises, leaving behind a lush landscape at the ends of grateful limbs.
Dr. Mike Foster, a board-certified surgeon, keeps a cool-headed watch over the team at DeSoto Laser Aesthetics as it delivers a roster of rejuvenating med-spa services. Brandishing late-model lasers and Victorian-era laser cozies, the medical aestheticians blast away all manner of blemish, from spider veins and body hair to tattoos and nail fungus, to treat every shade in the skin-tone choir. Nonlaser treatments include crease-fighting injectables and chemical peels, as well as ultrasonic Vaser liposuction. Patients relax in the clinic's olive-toned treatment rooms, admiring the framed floral prints on the walls as their physical flaws melt, vaporize, or crabwalk away.
Hair care services should be relaxing, something the experienced staff of Mélange: A Modern Salon makes sure of when they treat each client to their signature shampoo and scalp massage steeped in tea tree oil, peppermint, and lavender. The soothing pre-cut and color service sets clients at ease before they surrender their strands to mane masters who wield handpicked Paul Mitchell products within a space accented with hardwood floors, invigorating lighting, and scissors whispering style pointers to new coiffures. Hair-smoothing services such as the KeraTriplex formula hydrates and fortifies fragile strands while the well-stocked Paul Mitchell color bar provisions new hues for guests looking to complement their skin tone or match a favorite hexadecimal code.
At the top of Before & After's bill of split-end enders is hairstylist and founder Jeanette Story, who offers clients a heap of healthy hair services using KeraCare and Nioxin products. Downhill unicyclists can achieve supreme aerodynamics by taking a little off the sides with a haircut ($15 for men, $20 for women). The Nioxin renew treatment ($30) restores scalp health and hair strength to let humans experience natural cranial smoothness normally reserved for newborn porpoises.
