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.

Fruit, vitamins, and enzymes aren’t just what scientists throw at each other during food fights; they’re key ingredients in many of the skin treatments rendered at Dave’s Spa & Salon. Those treatments might specifically target acne or aging, whether via microdermabrasion that sloughs off dead skin cells or a vitamin-C facial that uses freeze-dried seaweed—straight from the Little Mermaid’s icebox—to reduce fine lines and mitigate acne. Stylists and technicians present a variety of other beautifying services, as well. Their body-sculpting treatments can noninvasively reduce the appearance of cellulite with Synergie vacuum-massage technology. Or, the team performs haircuts, deep conditionings, and color treatments to solidify new looks and styles.
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.
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.
The licensed aestheticians at Fusion Solutions bestow faces with youthful radiance through the dermasweep and Fusion facial treatments. During the one-hour dermasweep, skin-saving practitioners help render skin on the face and neck smoother than sandblasted pop rocks. A bristle tip acts as a vacuum to apply a gentle exfoliation, allowing paraben-free topical products to simultaneously reach deeper layers of the skin for effective results. The treatment can be customized with a wide variety of bristle tips and pore-party hats to suit the patient’s desired results. The Fusion facial handles specific epidermal concerns, such as dry, sensitive, or hypercolor skin, with a wide array of medically prepared products. Using cleansers, toners, and masks derived from natural ingredients such as aloe leaf and coffee extract, facial gurus help protect visages from the elements and late-morning jitters.
The stylists at Glam Hair Studio prove equally adept at making small alterations or performing exhaustive makeovers as they beautify clients. They trim and fashion tresses with the help of a certified colorist, drawing bold highlights, layering strands into pageant-ready updos, or combing in KeraSmooth treatments to level out frizz. For those who desire longer locks that look more natural than snipped jump-rope ends, stylists can adhere hair and eyelash extensions. Meanwhile, makeup artists accentuate features with complementary colors, just as spray-tanning technicians coat physiques in a flattering bronze sheen. The salon also features nail services such as mani-pedis, Shellac applications, and acrylic and gel nails.
