Hot-rod magazines and rockabilly tunes punctuate Chop Tops' retro atmosphere, where vintage video is just as likely to grace the TV as a live sporting event, and complimentary beverages are de rigueur. This youthful atmosphere often translates into a youthful-looking head and a plethora of compliments from friends, strangers, and the insides of hats. Add pep to your step with a new cut and shampoo ($15 for men, $31+ for women), or defy nature's palette with highlights or lowlights ($67+ for partial, $87+ for full). Once you get your new 'do, refresh your visage with Chop Tops' 60-minute European facial ($50) followed by a neat eyebrow wax ($15) that frames your best features and makes your eyes pop in the way that doesn't give people nightmares. The gentle yet efficient gurus at Chop Tops can also de-fuzz your half leg ($30) or give you an expert Brazilian wax ($50+). To better show off your newly hairless legs, throw in an airbrush tan customized to complement your natural skin tone ($20).

Owner Cherhea Frazier's favorite part of being a stylist is watching her clients transform. She puts that love to work when she helps women with thinning hair and health issues regain their confidence through beauty treatments. Cherhea draws on 12 years of experience while molding manes into custom shapes to suit all persuasions. In addition to cropping 'dos with razor cuts or extending strands with Cinderella hair extensions, she accents coiffures with highlights, lowlights, and the tildes that make so many Spanish letters look resplendent. While she works, Cherhea uses products by Moroccanoil, Pureology, and Pravana. She can also tame frizzy hair with chemical relaxers or keratin treatments.

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.
