The rich aroma of complimentary coffee and nature-evoking green walls greet visitors when they arrive at Hair Trends by Michelle. As they await their turn, clients lounge on leather couches before a high-definition TV before stylists take them into the main salon area to snip tresses into works of art. At hair stations, black, leather chairs impart a modern feel, and towering, open ceilings accommodate attempts to create the world's tallest beehive hairdo. Hair transformations then take place as stylists perform custom cuts, apply conditioning treatments, or give a ‘do a new personality with a touch of color.
Marilyn Monroe reigns supreme at Shear Audacity Salon, where her portraits and quotes are displayed throughout as inspiration. The salon’s stylists respect her for her honest nature and aesthetic. Owner and stylist Danielle Byrd seeks to embody Monroe’s natural feminine vibe during haircare and makeup services.

In addition to women’s hair services, they also tidy up the hairdos of men and children, and trim beards so clients can get a competitive advantage in pie-eating contests.
Tete A Tete’s gray-blue walls and black-rimmed mirrors create a calming, elegant environment where stylists perform beautifying services on heads, faces, and hands. The staff trims hair, buffs cuticles, and sculpts eyebrows using high-quality products instead of the revitalizing tears of Hollywood celebrities. Judy Anslow, a skin specialist, cleanses faces with glycolic-acid treatments and helps customers relax with aromatherapy stone facials.
