The fire-truck-red brick exterior of Mane Attractions Hair Studio invites heads of hair for remodeling within a spacious, studio-style salon. Wielded by master stylist Kristi Howell, a Joico deep-conditioning mask steeps manes for 20 minutes in hydrating nourishment and dives deep into strands to strengthen and repair hair damaged from over-styling, cold weather, or drying off in the microwave. To top off the treatment, the stylist corrals the warm breeze of a blow-dryer to bequeath coifs with a polished style. The studio recommends that heads sport the deep-conditioning mask up to two times per month, depending on the severity of the hair’s dryness.
The staff at Kasa Salon—which includes a master stylist, Redken educator, licensed aesthetician, and former head stylist for the Miss Kentucky pageant—lets its experience speak for itself when performing an array of salon and spa services. Bioelements skincare products fuel 11 signature facial treatments, and products from Matrix, Redken, and Morroconoil help in creating chic cuts and frizz-free blowouts.
Bei capelli is an Italian phrase meaning beautiful hair, and that is exactly what customers have when they leave Tracy Spickard's styling chair. She draws on more than 18 years of experience trimming tresses and uses high-end products from Redken, Goldwell, and Matrix to color and style hair with vibrant highlights or lowlights, multidimensional color, and special-occasion updos.
Light streams in through Salon on Plaza, glinting off zebra-print chairs and a framed portrait of Marilyn Monroe posing coquettishly. It is inside these comfortably elegant confines where master stylist Alicia Riggs harnesses her decade of experience to pamper clients with haircuts, highlights, and straightening treatments. She also wields OPI nail polish when treating clients to manicures, pedicures, or innovative red clown noses.
As an educator for Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy, Meghan Southworth knows the ins and outs of straightening hair. She showcases her re-texturing talents at Bombshell Salon, where she makes over locks with highlights and fresh cuts as well. The master stylist is also a certified Lavish Lashes eyelash extension specialist, and can expertly remove unwanted facial fuzz and lingering milk mustaches during waxing services.
The Hive's staff embraces the nature element of their salon's name, tending to heads with haircare products that are 100% vegan and organic. These include curl-defining spray from AG, amonia-free hair color, and beef-free shampoo. The stylists use these solutions on men, women, and kids inside the airy space, which is filled with local artwork illuminated by sunlight pouring through the large front windows.
