Shawn Michael Salon's owner, Michael Hembree, views his work as an educational opportunity as well as a luxurious service. He likes to teach clients about why he does what he does, whether he's coloring hair, applying makeup, or styling with professional products. A spoonful of sugar helps each lesson go down—literally; Michael offers every client wine, coffee, or soda as they enjoy his services and insights. He wisely surrounds himself with other professionals who share his vision of teaching clients how to care for their own beauty while at home or stranded on a desert island.

Melinda Wenzel, an independent contractor working out of Salon Republic, makes every effort to minimize pain while removing clients’ body hair. She uses hard wax rather than harsh strip wax, reducing both discomfort and the chance of fostering ingrown hairs. Wenzel also uses spa-quality Dermalogica products for facials and skincare.

Owner Shaune Haas and the team at Bang Salon & Day Spa are always looking to stay up on modern beauty trends, which is why their menu has recently expanded to include color services with Paul Mitchell's new ammonia-free formulas, and lash extensions that range from natural to dramatic looks. The salon's sunless tanning services are contemporary as well, using Norvell's organic airbrush formulas, which are cruelty-free and infused with anti-aging antioxidants. Bang Salon also offers skin treatments, ranging from the acne-fighting Deep Cleanse to the anti-aging Cyto-Luxe facial, using pharmaceutical-grade gloTherapeutics products for results-oriented skincare. Of course, you can still get a good, trendy cut and color here?Bang's stylists are more than capable of updating your look with ombre color, extensions, or a keratin smoothing treatment that was flown in from the future.

Diana Guerra, the owner and practicing aesthetician at Skinnovation, believes that corrective services should be as comfortable as they are aesthetically rewarding. So it?s a good thing that she performs every service herself. That way, treatments such as the Double Infusion Lightening Facial not only renew the skin with advanced Rhonda Allison Skincare products but soothe the client that lives behind the googly eyes. Ultimate comfort even plays a role in waxing, as Diana uses Cirepil depilatory products to minimize irritation.
