A faculty of experienced instructors explains styling theory and oversees practical training as barbering apprentices seek out professional licenses through Success Barber Schools, LLC's two-part curriculum. After mastering textbook material and acing pop quizzes from Rapunzel, students receive their wings to test skills on clients in the 10,000-square-foot facility. Attendants apply fine-tuned sheer, clipper, and straight-razor methods to male and female manes of all ages. Tress decorators demonstrate their grasps on highlight and coloring techniques to round out their aesthetic educations.
A Joyous Look's nail technicians camouflage humdrum hand and foot keratins in eye-catching colors during 45- to 60-minute mani-pedis. Patrons kick-back in an airy salon as a paw doter pares-down jagged fingernail edges and coffee-table corners, outfitting mitts with gently sloping pointer peaks. The beautifier brushes fresh hues across digit decks before turning attention to sub-ankle appendages. Piggies relish in a relaxing session during which a staff member sweeps away hangnails and sculpts toe-tips into chic crescents. Clients can get their nails polished in a pulchritudinous shade to beautify feet or to have an upside when looking at toes after stubbing them.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack opened the first HealthSource office in 2006 and has watched his business take flight, growing to more than 250 offices nationwide. The expansion is due in part to progressive-treatment protocols and business systems and in part to the experience Dr. Tomshack gained while in the US Air Force and the MBA program at the University of Toledo, and at Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he graduated summa cum laude. At each of his offices, a team of chiropractors, licensed massage therapists, and trainers helps to alleviate ailments such as disk degeneration and fibromyalgia. The team can also tailor treatments to alleviate pain from carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, or arthritis, and its progressive-rehab program works with body areas that are known to cause trouble, such as weak lower backs and rebellious pinky toes.
Husband-and-wife Doctors of Chiropractic Diane and Chris Hayes join forces to relieve a range of painful symptoms with noninvasive treatments, helping to break clients' reliance on unnecessary medications. Although they can use the office's x-ray technology to get a clearer picture of bone structure, the doctors mostly rely on their encyclopedic knowledge of spines, joints, and common Twister injuries when they perform hands-on adjustments or Activator instrument adjustments, depending on the patient's needs. As further proof of their commitment to holistic well-being, they also offer weight-loss programs that help patients develop new eating and exercise habits in order to prevent the onset of serious health complications.

Clients may also retreat to a private room for the Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure of licensed massage therapist Jennifer Ivezic.
