Owner Becky Weir and her handpicked team of stylists harness Redken and Pureology products to power fashion-driven services. During haircuts, shears remove split ends and snip flattering face frames to update styles while guests sip complimentary refreshments. All services refresh skulls with a shampoo and relaxing scalp massage and conclude with a blow-dry and style that pamper tresses like Rapunzel's elevator. Stylists wield Redken color during highlight services and delve deep into cranial underbrush to brighten locks with up to 31 foils or elect tactical surface strands for partial highlights. Patrons settle into sleek, black aprons, trusting their pelts to stylists who expand hairstyling awareness by taking two outside-education classes per year.

Armed with a variety of spa services, Salon Burget’s highly trained squad of specialists imparts sentient stick figures with style and confidence in a comfy atmosphere. If you seek to speed your way to a professional, finished image, treat your arm enders to an express treatment with today's digit-enhancing duo. Salon Burget's 25-minute express manicure ($20) flattens out hand humbugs such as ragged tips, hangnails, dull claws, and feathered talons, beginning with a nail trim, shaping, and a cuticle push and leading to a nail buff and shine. Meanwhile, the 30-minute shellac treatment puts a finishing glimmer on a primped likeness with the choice of shellac french tips ($22) or a color or clear shellac ($17), a strong, naturally derived polish. Shellac's UV curing also nixes drying time, helping busy clients get back on the go quickly.

At Salon of RR’s, new coats of color deck out strands and hands alike with highlighting and mani-pedi services. Texturizing treatments and cuts grace hair with new silhouettes; for example, Brazilian Blowout treatments leave hair straight for several months. The treatment also makes styling hair more manageable by smoothing the hair cuticle and eliminating frizz, much like coating hair in floor varnish.

The Nail Lounge exudes elegance, with low-hanging chandeliers casting glows over silver chairs and wash stations with sinks complete with river rocks in the counter-top wash basin. The spa's high standards extend to the pedicure room, where guests can sink into La Fleur IV pedicure chairs equipped with a four-massage, shiatsu massage system. Meanwhile, they dunk their feet in foot spas lit by fiber-optic lighting—and featuring a pipe-free whirlpool system that ensures ultimate cleanliness.

Nail service choices range from gel polish to silk wraps or minx nails, with artificial and natural nail choices available. Pedicures are heightened by rose petal baths, honey and sugar scrubs, and invigorating mint foot soaks, to name only a few options. Along with nail care, The Nail Lounge also pampers clients with waxing services and eyelash extensions.

Lotus Skin Care’s owner, Rachel McEachen, was trained in the art of taming follicles at two different Tampa-area cosmetology schools, so she knows how to zap rogue hairs and sculpt beautiful brows with the precision of a helicopter pilot landing on a ping-pong table. She and her staff of friendly aestheticians put beauty-seekers at ease with their gentle, nearly painless waxing methods, and the cozy décor makes Lotus Skin as comfy and good-smelling as the inside of Gloria Stuart’s makeup bag. Three eyebrow waxings will keep brows in shape for months to come, providing ample hours for wiggling them while making faces in the mirror. Call ahead to make an appointment.
