The stylists at Something Special Styling Salon beautify hair in a number of ways from sew weaves, extensions, and natural hair transitioning to locks and twists. They can also cut and color hair or perform hot oil or relaxing treatments. All stylists are well-versed in haircare and draw from years of experience. For instance, Melva Williams has been in the beauty industry for more than 24 years and leads healthy hair seminars to help women take care of their locks.
Knockouts Haircuts for Men amps up the classic barbershop experience with a lavish, sports-themed approach to men's styling that has been featured on Today and CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. At a still-growing number of locations throughout the country, the company's all-female staff of stylists quarterbacks a full playbook of services ranging from bare-essential to spa-worthy. First and foremost, they clip shaggy locks, but they also administer facials, manicures, massages, and waxes. Complimentary beverages are included with every visit, giving patrons something to sip on while watching a sports game on TV or contemplating how they would fend off a lion using just a comb.

Sungum Salon's skincare professionals rejuvenate epidermises with treatments culled from time-honored methods and resources such as ancient Indian therapeutic techniques and Ayurvedic herbs. Their face-care services range from microdermabrasion and facial masks to steams and glycolic peels, whose ingredients—naturally extracted sugar cane, sugar beets, and raw grapes—exfoliate skin while diminishing wrinkles and acne scars. For the rest of the body, an exotic fruit or oatmeal-honey scrub exfoliates skin more effectively than lining your trousers with coarse-grain sandpaper. Sungum Salon's full-body treatments also include a seaweed-and-French-clay wrap, which infuses skin with nutrients, and henna sessions that adorn hands, feet, or backs with temporary ornate designs.
