Salons in New South Memphis

Elvis Presley has arguably the most iconic hairstyle in pop culture—a slicked-back pompadour with long sideburns. It was a style that became popular after he began performing in Memphis, even though it reportedly had long existed on the heads of Southern truck drivers. In the heart of Elvis’s stomping grounds, Essentials Hair Salon’s expert stylist Cassandra Murphy carries on the tradition of Southern style, arranging hair to suit both old- and new-school trends. She gilds select strands with highlights, plays up curls, and even adds eyelash extensions in a salon that feels as homey and cozy as kangaroo’s pouch decorated with a string of Christmas lights.

Before she became a sought-after stylist—working on BET's Celebration of Gospel, two movies, commercials, and more—Kori Randolph honed her skills by with whatever she could get her hands on, cutting her friends’ hair with kitchen scissors. Despite the crude equipment, her friends continued requesting her services, inspiring Randolph to pursue a career in what she loved the most: styling. Now a nine-year veteran of the beauty industry, Randolph works out of Voyage2Beauty Hair and Nail Salon. Here, in addition to cuts and color, she specializes in designs for big events, such as high-school reunion updos or wedding mohawks.

Best friends Kimberly Reneé and Paris Chanel started Blush Me Beautiful to share their knack for makeup with fellow Memphis ladies. Catering not just to brides but to anyone in need of a little pampering, Kimberly and Paris customize looks for each client. Services are available à la carte—clients can come in just for brow shaping, for instance—and in the form of full-face makeovers. To brush up on cosmetic skills of their own, some patrons even enroll in the duo's private makeup classes.

Bermel’s Roxanne Barkley calls upon her 20 years of pampering experience to conjure timeless head-to-toe relaxation with indulgent manicures, pedicures, and facials. Fingers and toes dress for success during manicures and pedicures, donning vibrant polish after losing rough edges thanks to contouring clippers and files. Image skin products leave their normal posts in the guest suites of the Ritz Carlton to primp face terrains with vitamin C extracts during the signature face-lift facial, which also dispatches potent glycolic acid to smooth away fine lines, tighten skin, and minimize pores plagued by escaped whack-a-moles.

When not fashioning disheveled noodles into elegant coifs, experienced stylist Susan Murray gently removes unwanted facial fuzz using soft and exfoliating honey wax for all skin types. A triad of brow-waxing sessions transforms bushy above-the-eye fringe into perfectly arched ocular adornments, ensuring unobstructed vision during javelin-throwing contests. Susan can also tenderly evict scruff from chins and upper lips to stunt the growth of unwanted goatees. Each depilatory session takes up to 15 minutes, after which, clients can expect skin to remain prickle-free for up three weeks and hair to grow softer over time––like the palms of retired mountain climber.
