The interior of Hair Flair could almost be a hairstyling museum. Next to the window, an antique perm machine dangles its medieval tentacles over a mannequin's head. On the wall nearby hang cutting shears and a blow dryer Ben Franklin could have used.
But these vintage curios stay right where they are: on display. Hair Flair's fashion-forward stylists, Wendy Boyk and Laurie Shoupe, rely on modern hairstyling techniques when making clients look good. Together, they ply their beautifying trade for women, men, and children, performing precision cuts, texturizing highlights, and hydrating conditioning services.
In 2006, the staff at Ms Nails began decorating nails with brightly-colored polish. Since then, they've moved to a downtown Valparaiso location, expanded their team of nail techs to include a massage therapist, started to provide hair services, and built upon their service menu to incorporate CND shellac manicures, facials, and massages. One can only assume that their continued growth will manifest itself in the hiring of a mascot shaped like a giant nail file, though these rumors have no basis in reality.
Debi is a hairstylist at Divine Hair Design, where she combines an artistic eye and steady hands to sculpt elegant and fashion-forward styles.

Salon Diva's staffers cater to practically every beauty need, offering hair- and nailcare alongside waxing and makeup applications. And thanks to a newly minted partnership with The Cinnamon Tree, they've expanded their pampering services. Now customers can enjoy relaxing massages—including therapeutic, hot stone, and deep tissue—as well as a selection of facials.
At European Style Salon & Day Spa, beauty experts take the helm on an extensive selection of services ranging from facials and massages to manicures and hair services. In that spirit, Tricia Glavin flaunts her credentials as both a stylist and an aesthetician, revamping hair with cuts and color applications and hydrating skin with body wraps and other skincare treatments.
Over the past two centuries, the historic town of Hobbard has stayed current without losing any of its small town charms. The Professional Edge salon is no exception. Through the classic hair studio's period storefront, wood accents and cabinetry offer an old-time feel, while skilled stylists maintain hair modernity with Redken brand products. Clients may also retreat to a private room for the Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure of licensed massage therapist Jennifer Ivezic.
