For close to a quarter century, the staff at HeadTurners Salon and Wellness Spa have been helping people look and feel better with a menu of relaxing treatments that earned the Hutchinson News Readers’ Choice award for Best Day Spa and Hair Salon in 2009 and 2010.
In the salon area, cosmetologists customize cuts and colors at 15 hair stations, and nail technicians pamper hands and feet. Two licensed massage therapists loosen muscles with aromatherapy or heated stones, and aestheticians clarify faces using the Clinical Care Skin Solutions line. The spa also offers automated treatments for clients seeking high-tech relaxation and detoxification or guests who were raised by robots.

Patrick Lomantini, who holds a World Record in endurance haircutting and traveled the nation to perform 50 haircuts in 50 states in 50 days on a fundraising tour, oversees a team of professional stylists and colorists at Lomantini the Salon. Together, the team specializes in revamping styles with haircuts, colors, and updo services using professional products such as Fudge and Unite. Deep-conditioning treatments can add an extra oomph to follicles, and eyebrow waxes truncate jungle-like brow lines or remove mistletoe taped to foreheads.
Barcelona Hair Lounge provides high-quality hair services that reflect a commitment to professionalism, creativity, and client respect. Whether heads are unbalded by hair, wigs, or capellini, the skilled staff can clip, snip, and dye noggin flora with a women’s haircut ($45) and color ($80). At Barcelona, each client first receives a personal hair diagnosis to determine which products will best suit her follicle needs. Then, a professional hair sculptor will mold stray head fuzzies into luxurious head locks and cover the finished product with a coat of many hair colors.
Transformations boasts an array of beautifying services that pretty up faces and touch up tops. A haircut disciplines unruly locks, stripping them of extraneous inches, smoothing unspoiled frizz, and teaching them to stand in a single-file line as they march from the scalp to the neck. Then a stylist robs the rainbow of its spectral hues, allowing clients to choose one color that best complements the spiffy new 'do or a favorite throw pillow. The Total Transformation package's cut and color keep good company with a facial wax, which endeavors to vanquish unwanted strands, creating a smooth canvas for the makeup consultation and application. Once the metamorphosis is complete, customers will be released back into the world to raise passersby's eyebrows and turn owls' heads.
Paragon Hair Company's crew of creative coiffeurs combine their experienced scissorhands with products such as Matrix, Nioxin, and Redkin to enact fresh, healthy, and fabulous 'dos.

Turn the volume down on style-defying frizz with a conditioning service ($5–$20) or temporarily turn back your neck clock with a makeup application ($25–$35) or facial waxing ($11–$13).
