Salon Zen’s experienced stylists wipe away stress with myriad relaxation-inducing treatments and revamp looks with a host of hair services. Scissor wielders conduct personalized consultations before tailoring haircuts to suit lifestyles, preferences, and face shapes. Guests kick back during pampering sessions that include comforting spa mani-pedis or facials, and waxing services unburden follicles of having to support deadbeat hair that refuses to pay rent.
Ashley Baker’s smile reaches all the way to her eyes. And she’s just one of the beaming employees who might greet you at Moxie Shop. As sunny as its staff, Moxie combines color and contemporary design in its decor—a lime-green couch, pink-and-white chairs, and vibrant flowers brighten the waiting area. Once clients have moved on to their respective salon stations, stylists use Bumble and bumble products to jazz up hair, PCA Skin and FarmHouse Fresh to reinvigorate skin, and gentle wax to shape brows and turn patrons into giant candles.
One tiny brushstroke at a time, the Shellac polish is applied to each nail. Immediately, it does double duty, keeping nails nice and shiny and protecting keratin sheets from chips and scratches caused by building too many sand castles in the zen garden. The beauty pros at traspa also make their clients’ bodies shine with the removal of unwanted hair or take out the extra sheen on mugs during oil-blasting facials.
Take Five's talented stylists have been serving up beautiful platters of hairstyle since 1993 from their salon near the University of Oklahoma. Their scissors have dipped into the head-threads of folks from every imaginable walk of life, be they style-fixated fashionistas or befuddled Flubber-inventing professors. Once they've gotten your noodle-nest moist and tender with the help of top-of-the-line Aveda-brand products, Take Five will carve the locks of lords, ladies, and ladies' men into a new look that swivels necks and fatally distracts bomb defusers.
The Palms Salon & Spa owner Wrobyn Tompkins opened her spa to equip patrons in flaunting their natural assets. A proclaimed curly hair specialist, Tompkins strives to enhance natural tress textures with curl-friendly cuts and serums by salon-trusted MopTop and Pureology brands. Her staff of seven stylists can assist clients with troublesome textures or hair loss by fitting and coloring wigs or extending locks past the shoulder with 100% human-hair extensions to conceal clingy pet parrots. Skin-deep treatments at the pampering oasis boast airbrush tans, massages, and facials that elevate a regular day to one that makes each client feel like the best version of themselves.
Right down the road from the Oklahoma University dorms lies Rock Paper Scissor Hair Studio, a salon where stylists cut, color, and style hair with premium products from brands such as Paul Mitchell. The Paul Mitchell name has influenced the salon's personnel as well as its inventory, since the three-person staff includes a graduate of the brand's school, not to mention a specialist in long hair and updos and a makeup and skincare whiz. Inside the salon itself, clients recline in comfortable leather chairs in front of full-length mirrors.
