Natural light pours through Textures Hair Salon’s large front windows, illuminating polished wood floors and buttery yellow walls. It's amid these cozy accents that owner Patricia Lindsay and her team do their work. Not only do they transform locks with high-end products by KeraCare, Mizani, and Design Essentials, but they also apply clip-in and strand-by-strand fusion weaves, create micro braids, and add highlights so people know which parts of your head are worth reading. Though the salon specializes in ethnic hair, the staff is adept at handling strands of all textures and thickness.
At her new location at Goodarzi Hair Studios, hair expert Josie offers a variety of hair services, including haircuts for men, women, and children, rich color treatments, styling, and even facial-hair removal.

She also pins hair into updos for special occasions, such as weddings and the last day of traffic court.
For mother-daughter team Margarita Soto and Isabel Osorio, establishing Isabella Hair, Nails & Spa has been their chance to create a tranquil haven for women, men, and kids to escape the chaos of the outside world. The gold color scheme that runs throughout the beauty shop sets customers at ease as a diverse staff of local and international stylists—Columbia-native Margarita boasts more than 25 years of beauty experience—keep hair stylish with roller sets, color treatments, and precision cuts, and aestheticians coax out the radiant glow of each client's complexion with fruit- and multivitamin-infused facials. To further relax patrons, the salon also offers tension-dissolving massages.
Inside Studio 355's contemporary salon, a team of beauty experts helps clients to showcase their best selves with a lengthy list of hair, skin, and nail services.

With Aveda products in its arsenal, the hair team uses its varied talents to give clients any look they desire, be it extensions, bridal updos, creative coloring, or straight, relaxed hair. An accomplished skin therapist helps fight the signs of aging or skin conditions such as acne with services for both men and women, and waxing treatments leave body hair wondering what it did to not deserve its own updo.
To J. Michael and Mia Chreky, there's no better business partner than your life partner, and no better philosophy than a simple one. That's why the two decided to co-own J. Michael The Salon, where they operate with a crystal-clear goal in mind: "Great hair. Always." Together, they helm a team of stylists, aestheticians, and makeup artists who provide services ranging from haircuts and highlights to mani-pedis and makeup work. In addition, complimentary coffee, tea, and pastries are available, with the helpful staff on hand to remind you not to get crumbs in your manicure.

Visitors can opt for an eyebrow ($20) and lip ($10) waxing, or two eyebrow-waxing treatments ($40 total) that will leave their mugs sleeker than a ’57 Chevy doused in Vaseline.
