The staff at Lucia's...the salon on main is tasked with carrying out an ambitious mission: "To provide an experience, not just a service." And so, when clients sink into styling chairs, close their eyes in front of a makeup artist, or pose in front of a spray-tan nozzle, they can relax in the salon's peaceful environment, confident in the staff's skills.
With two types of sunless tanning to choose from, visitors to HudSun Tans can step into either of the fully automated booths to achieve a deep tan without exposure to UV rays. Both the Mystic HD and VersaPro systems spray bodies from head to toe with robotic precision, and both are heated, so visitors can enjoy a warm breeze while their tan dries and develops. Those who desire the glow of UV beds also have a number of choices, ranging from 20-minute sessions in the Ultimate Envy 134 lie-down booth to quick 10-minute tans in the high-powered standup SunDome 548V.
As its name implies, Salon 180 isn’t known for playing by the book. From its funky decor—a mélange of vintage accents and asymmetrical shapes—to a staff that prides itself on relentlessly pursuing continuing education, the full-service salon finds plenty of ways to subvert and exceed first-time customers’ expectations.
Though they have years of experience cutting and styling hair, the salon’s team of stylists claims particular expertise in chemical treatments such as corrective color procedures and highlights. In private treatment rooms, massage therapists ease tension with full-body Swedish techniques or targeted sessions that narrow their focus to sore pitching arms or stiff vestigial tails. Just as the stylists and therapists draw on professional products to enhance their treatments, the spa’s skin and body specialists use advanced toners and technologies such as radio frequency and light energy to stimulate collagen production and clear skin of blemishes.
The pampering pros at Simply Swank aid clients in the quest for rejuvenation with one-hour massages and facials. Clients can relinquish deep-seated pains and mental stresses at the hands of a relaxation massage. The tension-alleviating technique blends muscle compression with rhythmic, flowing strokes to induce a full-body state of relaxation and a basic understanding of drum patterns.
Main Street Massage is run by lifetime resident, father of three children, and massage technician Barry Hatfield, who strives to help patients reduce stress, aches, and pains. Skip down the path of relaxation with a variety of massagey options. The smooth, flowing strokes of Swedish massage calm both mind and body, and the aromatherapy massage tops off the Swedish with an essential oil. Deep tissue attacks the layers of muscle hidden beneath other layers of muscle to untie knots similar to a prisoner trapped in a net-sack. Mr. Hatfield is also well-versed in sports massage, which can enhance athletic performance and the ability to throw flaming tires through larger flaming tires, and prenatal, which comforts future moms.

At Club Beauty, wander up and down the cheetah-print stairs of the two-story salon and spa for a day of pampering. Head to the pedicure station, where guests relax on the cushioned-topped bench built into the gray tiled platform and soak their feet in the footbath below. Nearby, a purple velvet dining chair relaxes clients during standard and shellac manicures, and a white brick fireplace is the perfect spot for quickly melting off old polish. The vibrant red, modern chairs in the salon area host clients getting haircuts, extensions, and blowouts.
