Sherry Ferguson lends her artistic eye—not to mention 40 years of experience—to every haircut, manicure, facial, or waxing treatment that takes place at Ferguson Designs. She streaks hair with highlights, or even shades of pink, purple, and blue to help her clients' true colors shine through. Despite her salon's spacious area, she keeps private rooms in which to conduct each treatment. She goes out of her way to make each visitor as comfortable as possible in their borrowed personal space. She wants them to come back. "A repeat client is always the best compliment we can get," she says.

As part of the Forney Salons Suites?a one-stop beauty shop for hair, nail, and skincare needs?the staff at Forney Nails focuses on beautifying hands and feet.

Characterized by soft whites and pops of earthy greens and browns, Bella Vi Skin & Laser Center's décor feels at once clean and natural. The aestheticians enhance this feeling, filling the air with the aroma of eucalyptus leaves, the harmonious sounds of zen music, and the ambient splashing of their little waterfall, which they presumably shrunk with the same technology as they use to diminish pore size. Once the atmosphere sets clients at ease, the aestheticians beautify and restore bodies with a range of services, such as laser procedures to rid skin of wrinkles and hair, threading and waxing treatments, and classic facials.
After bonding in cosmetology school over their mutual desire to open a salon, two friends decided to partner to create The Vibe Hair Studio. The salon's experienced stylists beautify guests with precision cuts, rich color, and elegant updos and transform parched, frizzy locks into sleek styles with deep-conditioning and keratin treatments. Along with haircare, the salon also offers facial and body waxing, makeup applications, and lash and brow tinting.
Flat-screen TVs pipe in professional-grade celebrity faces as nail techs work to gussy up fingertips and toe tops. Skilled aestheticians exfoliate and renew complexions with signature facials and decorate digits with sleek color polish. Rows of plush and cozy pedicure chairs invite guests to take a load off with the help of amenities, such as ceramic soaking basins, padded leather cushions, and gas-powered nail files.
Warren Wilkes Salon is quite capable of cranking out pretty hairdos with dazzling highlights, but its owner is also able to deal with the wind- and sun-ravaged hair that only comes from frequently riding a motorcycle. According to an Examiner.com article, Warren, a biker himself, knows exactly where to add layers so that the hair still maintains a great shape even after being smooshed under a helmet and tied with hair bands. He even tells his long-haired clients to place covered hair bands in tresses every 3 inches in order to keep hair protected from the elements and frog plagues.
When Warren and his stylists are not tending to bikers’ hair, they correct color, add hair extensions, and create updos. Aestheticians work alongside Warren and his hairstylists, beautifying faces with microdermabrasion and lash tinting.
