At Masterpiece Barbershop & Hair Salon, personal grooming comes with a side of personal attention. As patrons settle into a chair, a stylist might offer a beer, a glass of wine, or a snack. Easy banter fills the room as Lenny, the head barber, or Jason, another barber, begin sculpting your ‘do into a fade, faux hawk, or classic cut. For those with longer hair or those who have spawned strands of mythological snakes, onsite stylists can wash, cut, and color longer locks. Masterpiece Barbershop & Hair Salon offers cuts and hair treatments for men and women; men can get a cut and a hot towel shave, while women can indulge in highlights or flat ironing treatments.
Masterpiece Barbershop & Hair Salon also doubles as an art gallery, with over 75 pieces of art from local artists. Pieces range from oil pantings to sculptures to much more.

With experience in cosmetology and business management, Octavia McDougle helps aspiring beauticians of all sorts forge new career paths as hairstylists, barbers, cosmetologists, and massage therapists. At Beauty Anatomy Institute of Cosmetology and Wellness, Octavia and her staff guide students in immersive programs that combine preparatory theory with hands-on practical application. Once they've learned the ropes, protégés get to practice services on real-life clients before they earn their licenses and find employment.
Students train on a 4,100-square-foot campus replete with four clinic areas and salon-exclusive products typically found only in premier salons and Walt Whitman’s finely manicured beard. Beauty Anatomy Institute also runs an outreach program to provide disadvantaged teenagers with scholarships, workshops, and grooming services to further boost their self-esteem.
Helmed by a talented cast of nine hairstylists and one nail technician, Shear Excitement Salon cloaks clients in beauty from head to toe. Stylists sling products by Matrix, Chi, and Sexy Hair across strands as they lop off overgrown lengths and add depth and dimension with lustrous color treatments. Meanwhile, in the nail corner, nail tech Lee pampers hands and feet with indulgent manicures, pedicures, and fur-lined sandals, and embellishes digits with colorful OPI polish or no-chip Shellac gel. The styling staff also gussies up features with expert airbrush makeup applications and eyelash extensions, and strips away excess fuzz with waxing treatments for the face and body.
Phenom-A-Nails boasts more than 15 years in the beauty industry, doling out beauty-ameliorating services including waxing, hairstyling, and nail polishing. A professionally trained nail technician will file, buff, and clean extraneous colors from all 27 fingers and toes to kick off the pampering 90-minute mani-pedi. A soothing hand massage expels tension buildup caused by high-fiving addictions, and a finishing polish accentuates nails' newfound shapes with a shiny splash of color before dryers lock in new shades. Salon owner Sheri Brown further creates a calming ambiance by pumping the salon's confines full of clean air, saving sensitive schnozzles from nail products' infamously bad taste in perfume.
In the early 20th century, you might be able to identify patients coming from a reflexology appointment by the clothespins on their fingertips. Today?s reflexologists generally carry out their treatments by hand in a wellness clinic or a massage studio, but the principle remains the same: apply pressure to specific points on the hands, feet, or ears, prompting responses in organs throughout the body.
The practice is similar to acupuncture and acupressure in positing energy pathways running through the body, although the scheme is a little simpler than Chinese medicine?s system of meridians. Envision vertical lines running from each toe up through the leg, joining lines running from each finger up the arm toward the neck and coming together in the head, and you have the body divided into 10 attractively slimming reflexology zones. Within each zone on the palm or?most common in reflexology sessions today?the sole, certain pressure points are thought to correspond to organs, joints, or other tissues elsewhere in the same zone.
Dr. William Fitzgerald?originator of the clothespin technique?began practicing what he called ?zone therapy? in 1915. While research has yet to find a concrete link between modern medical thought and the millennia-old idea of imperceptible bodily energy, that doesn't mean reflexology can't be relaxing. Patients can expect the benefits of a treatment to include at least those of a good foot massage: increased circulation, relieved muscle tension, and decreased stress and susceptibility to tickle attacks. Even early proponents of the technique accepted that results might vary from person to person. Writing in 1928, physician Bernard Lust was content with claiming that ?the adoption of the method is attended with absolutely no danger or disagreeable results, and may be the means of lengthening short lives and making good health catching.?
