From within Brenda Bennett Salon, stylist Mindy Premo imparts style and manageability to manes. She kicks off appointments by determining a cut or hue that works best with clients’ features or skin tone before styling hair into their desired look. Mindy also pulls from three levels of smoothing treatments to instantly reduce frizz, boost shine, and subdue curls across all hair types.
Since 1994, ChrisAnn Truckey has kept her salon free of synthetic odors by relying on a natural approach to nailcare and an arsenal of specialized tools. One such tool grooms and shapes toe-talons during the pedicure, smoothing out any keratin aberrations and extracting feet from the painful concrete shoes they've been wearing since the day they accidentally stepped into a freshly-poured sidewalk. ChrisAnn also takes care of calluses and assuages the aches and cramps that result from athletic activity, high heels, and ill-conceived attempts to combine the two. Finally, a leg exfoliation whisks dead skins cells off your skele-stilts, leaving gams a-gleam.
