ZEN micro spa and salon’s highly trained and style savvy staff members snip and tousle locks to create masterfully chic cuts. Strands unwind in the lithe fingers of a mane maven who uses organic shampoos and conditioners to free hair from dirt, oil, and clown wigs before enlisting scissor-wielding hands to dance freely across cranial landscapes. After the attentive shearing, stylists employ a round brush to blow-dry locks into a smooth, voluminous finish or twist tresses into bouncy curls. For an additional charge not included in this deal, grooming genies can grant fancier finishes in the form of elegant braids, hair wraps, or extensive flat-ironing to smooth wrinkles from hair or forehead.

In 1966, Jack Miller founded a nursery. Originally, it was dedicated to landscaping work, but it slowly evolved beyond stocking a few shrubs in tin cans. Now, several shade houses occupy the land, and a bustling collection of northern-grown trees, shrubs, and perennials sprawls over 8 acres in the nursery. The landscaping services, which range from building garden walls and patios to installing walkways, include installation by specialists and instructions on self-installation.

According to the photographers at Jones Image Design, a successful photo shoot captures not only an image but a unique essence as well. That's why they prefer to hold detailed, in-person consultations at their studio before each session. After designing a wholly customized experience, they may snap candid shots of laughing infants sitting side by side, a family walking near a placid lakeshore, or a high-school senior posing in both casual wear and glamorous attire. They even guarantee that anyone who isn't charmed by the resulting images will receive a refund or new pictures.

In addition to their commercial, family, and senior portraits, Jones Image Design hosts photography classes. These lessons tutor beginners on the basics of working with an SLR camera, from snapping still frames of a model to shouting the specific types of cheese that elicit a bigger grin.
