Acaj Salon's collection of talented stylists stay up-to-date on the latest fashion and styling trends by sharpening their skills in quarterly continuing-education courses. Their commitment to learning manifests itself in flattering layers, bold highlights, and classic colors. Acaj is a departmentalized salon, which means people who specialize in giving haircuts give haircuts, people who specialize in color do color, and people who specialize in straightening straighten clients' ties as they get their hair cut. As the proverbial cherry on top, Acaj's staff provides a complimentary moisturizing conditioner treatment with each and every service.

Full sets of acrylic nails. Deluxe pedicures that unfurl across a full, relaxing hour. OPI gel manicures that stay chip-free for weeks. These are just a few of the nailcare services administered by Angie Breedwell inside her cozy studio space, which features a comfy leather pedicure chair and verdant plants. In addition to buffing nails to a high shine and moisturizing dry cuticles, she will include the customer’s choice of American- or French-style nail painting with any service, depending on which language cuticles speak.
Hair removal, massage, skincare?these are the marquee services at J Sterling's Hair Design, a relaxing boutique spa where client comfort is second only to results. The staff excels in state-of-the-art medspa treatments such as electrolysis and laser hair removal as well as more spa-like services such as the La Grand Classique Facial. This treatment uses anti-inflammatory plant extracts to diminish blemishes and give the skin a texture as smooth as a pitch from a velvet salesman. That's just one of nine facials offered here, along with chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Massage therapists provide Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massages in private, sound-proof treatment rooms where clients have the privacy to let go of their stress and focus completely on the soothing bodywork.
Cobalt blue, bright turquoise, and fierce red hues can brighten up the inside Lavish Salon & Spa. But they aren't found on the walls or in paintings; rather, these vibrant colors are found on the heads of patrons walking out of the salon. Stylists’ outside-of-the-box thinking also includes asymmetrical layers and other funky dos. Of course, they just as adeptly imbue locks with classic golden hues and craft side-swept bangs for those aiming for a more timeless look.
