Though all of the aestheticians at Strandz Salon are veterans of the beauty business, their styling menu is cutting edge. This focus on both tried and true methods and the latest hair trends and technologies instills in them the ability to tackle any hair project, be it a simple cut with foil highlights or a complete revamp of hair’s texture with a smoothing keratin treatment or softly flowing perm. They use lauded products such as Moroccanoil hair masks and Keune’s Tinta hair-coloring system, which features ingredients that protect newly tinted strands from changing color when exposed to UV rays or embarrassing high-school photos.
Though its stylists have been voted some of the area’s best by the Daily Times Readers’ Choice awards, Strandz isn’t just a hair salon. Nail technicians are also available to file and freshen up nails with long-lasting gel polish, or guide clients to the private tanning rooms for lay-down or standup bronzing sessions.

Dr. Tom Rogers wants you to picture yourself 25 years from now. What will you look like, and how will you feel? Will you be energized and confident? As a man approaching 60 years of age, Dr. Rogers has asked himself these questions as well. He understands that people want to live active, healthy lifestyles for as long as possible. And, as a family physician who is board certified in both sports medicine and anti-aging medicine, he specializes in treatments that help people do just that.
He founded Performance Medicine to maintain and recapture patients' youthful vigor, encouraging his clients to follow weight-management programs and nutrition and fitness guidelines. For hormone-replacement therapy, Dr. Rogers and his medical staff use tiny, slow-release pellets as their preferred delivery method.
