Great Clips harnesses the vast resources of a national salon chain to provide personalized, professional styling services to follicle frolickers. Highly trained hair tamers tame wild wigs and also serve as style guides through the often-intimidating tonsorial jungle, answering clients' questions about hair trends and maintenance. The stylish snipping ($13) gets started after a warm shampoo and rinse ($5) cleans scalps and washes away the melodies of musical comedies stuck in hair. Walk-ins are welcome.

Stylist and certified color specialist Deanna believes color treatments should do more than change the hair’s appearance; they should improve hair overall. After 12 years and multiple color classes, she has become certified in Scruples hair-color techniques, which are designed to get hair glowing with vibrant reds, brunettes, and blondes while infusing strands with silicone conditioners and safeguarding hair against sunlight by absorbing UV rays. In addition to her high-end hair services, Deanna also primps nails with mani-pedis and artificial nail applications.
The dedicated stylists at Bellezza Salons pamper clients and their tresses with customized haircuts and color options, wielding handpicked products such as Pureology Serious Colour Care for hue-enhanced head threads. Monochromatic mop tops can opt for a full set of highlights, which begin as a trained stylist ushers in the salon’s resident rainbow to discuss hair texture and desired color. Across a 90-minute appointment, strands are reanimated to each client’s preferred hue, then shampooed, snipped, and styled to precision. Hair-whisperers snip man manes and lady locks during customized 45- to 60-minute haircuts, which include a consultation, shampoo, and style.
