Tessa grew up with scissors in her hand. Her father’s salon was a staple of her Missouri community for 25 years, and there she learned the ins and outs of cutting hair to face shape and blending luxurious color highlights. Today she continues her father’s legacy, employing Matrix and American Crew brand products to transform tresses in Genesis Salon. Amid the studio's industrial-inspired décor, she joins four other stylists in crafting contemporary styles designed to work with each client's lifestyle and fashion tastes.
Girl Boutique outfits women and girls with the latest designs from fashion capitals like New York, Los Angeles, Italy, and Paris. The impressive inventory boasts a bevy of brands that will give your closet hangers a much-needed ego boost. Vestments by Michael Stars range from $34 to $148, and upscale swaddlings from Shoshanna sell from $98. Slip your stems into a new pair of jeans constructed by Dish ($72–$92) or Salsa ($109). Fashion expert and style extraordinaire Lori Guy ensures that no rack is left behind, stocking her store with tops, skirts, dresses, and accessories for all ages and occasions.
Hair Therapy Salon's team of creative, skillful stylists snip, style, shade, and strip hair through a variety of expert services. Put feminine strands in the deft hands of a scissor-maneuvering professional for a stylish ladies' cut and style ($35–$42). Or drag a mangy man mane in for a dapper do-over ($25–$29), complete with an optional steamed towel to relax the face and make it more diet-friendly. Fresh trims are easily snagged for lads and lasses ages 1–12 ($15–$25), and stylish teens and self-conscious collies can drop in for a quick bang or beard trim ($8). For those looking to lacquer locks in a different hue, a single color application ($50–$60+) revamps the entirety of the head's nest, and half-head highlights ($60+) add touches of luster that dance in and out of the hair's natural tint. Firm believers that not all follicles are created equally fashionable, the talented filament tamers also apply their landscaping expertise to more bothersome bristle, waxing away stubble from the brow ($15), lip ($12), or chin ($15) to create sleeker expressions and more easily escapable Halloween masks.
Ron Crider is a licensed massage therapist with practiced hands and a single focus. He conquers stress and tension at The Trove Salon, a hair studio specializing in chic and trendy styling. While his colleagues help The Trove's guests look good, Ron's task is to make them feel good, which he does through Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot stone massages.His Swedish massages use light pressure and long strokes to soothe stress and facilitate all-around relaxation, and deep-tissue massages target specific pains or points of tension. The hot stone massages combine elements of relaxation and deep-tissue massage, resulting in a soothing treatment that loosens the muscles enough to play the limbo against action figures.
The all-lady team at Shear Madness Hair Salon boasts more than two decades of combined experience working in the beauty industry. The successful salon is based upon one fundamental principle: help every client feel more like him- or herself. The stylists carry out that mission by enhancing hair with cuts, styles, and coloring and providing other aesthetic services, including mani-pedis, waxing, and massages. The salon also houses a lineup of beauty products, enabling clients to finally build that shampoo moat around their house.
If you walk into Blanc Studio planning to color your hair, you may just walk out with a brand new purse. After coloring 100 clients, the studio draws the name of one of those 100 clients and gifts them a Coach bag. This commitment to go above and beyond for a good experience becomes evident in other ways as well. A 52-inch television equipped with Netflix and a gaming system entertains kids as their parents relax in the stylists’ chair, and the studio’s master stylist approves each coiffure before clients depart or stay to use the Wii.
