Merideth Paskel, the owner and head stylist at Salon Illustras, is a born-and-raised Knoxville native, and she's always loved doing hair. After graduating from Reuben-Allen College and taking instruction from top stylists at Redken, Keune, and Kenra, she opened her own salon inside Studios West Salon Suites, where she offers chic haircuts and rich color services to both men and women. Also offering waxing and updos for special occasions, Merideth makes certain her clients feel at home the minute they walk in the door.
With more than 20 years of combined experience, the hair-loss experts at Acropolis Hair Studio have several ways of restoring thick, lustrous heads of hair. Handmade wigs crafted from human hair or high-quality synthetics wear easily on sensitive scalps to simulate flowing locks with less maintenance than wig-shop wigs, and laser therapy can tweak the skin in the scalp to revive it’s follicles. Experts tailor each treatment to the needs and desires of the client, offering a free consultation before administering any of their nonsurgical hair-restoration treatments.
The specialists at Alpha Omega Hair Design are well known for keeping abreast of the latest industry techniques through ongoing workshops and educational courses. While stylists busily clip hair, clients are led across the salon’s expansive floor to one of six private treatment rooms, where an aesthetician rejuvenates skin with exfoliating facials and chemical peels. During waxing sessions, an aesthetician swathes skin with warm wax before swiftly removing excess hair.
Though their original biological function was to act as food during times when no food could be found, fingernails and toenails have since evolved into key indicators of feminine beauty and well-being.

Paradigm is a full-service salon and spa that aims to provide its clients with the best cuticle cures in a chic and classy environment free of rampaging giant toddlers—a guarantee few other spas can make.
Fringes Studio Salon and Spa's staff mollifies the stresses of clients with a day of relaxation-oriented spa and salon services. During the hot-stone mani-pedi, aestheticians file and polish fingernails and toenails to lustrous gleams as hot stones alight upon feet with a rock and relaxation blend equivalent to hurling harps into a canyon. Velvety, deep-conditioned strands cascade toward shoulders like skydiving silkworms as a stylist's keen shears prune and style tresses. A meticulous eyebrow shaping caps off the aesthetic makeover by expunging stray hairs to impart congruent brow lines.
