Hair Crew International is an upscale salon that provides a slew of strand-shaping services to men, women, and children. Skilled stylists will maintain manly manes with a men’s haircut ($14.95) or clip kids' hair into aerodynamic ’dos so they can sprint faster in wind tunnels ($10).
The talented, continuously trained staff at Total Look Salon caters to every client’s needs with a range of grooming services backed by a satisfaction guarantee. The Brazilian blowout leaves locks free of frizz for up to 12 weeks and actually improves hair's health, unlike flattening manes with a panini press. The treatment, which lasts about 90 minutes, uses a proprietary potion free of formaldehyde and other harsh chemicals.

Q&A with Jaclynn Kate, Owner/Head Stylist
What?s your favorite part about your job?
My job is so personal. What other field of work can you go in and touch so many lives in a day? Knowing I can literarily make someone's day better by fixing a not-so-good haircut, or giving them the make over of their lives, is amazing. I believe it's one-hundred percent true that when you look good, you feel good?and when you feel good, you do good.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
My salon is painted in a shade of lavender, which helps clients feel calm. All of our decor is classic yet vintage-inspired, and it includes lovely photos of our bridal clients on their wedding days.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We travel on-location to do a bride's hair and makeup on her wedding day.
Specialists in the delicate art of dry haircutting, the expert mane tamers at Arous Studio extend their follicular finesse to help calm frizzy head fluff with the help of professional straightening products. The Brazilian Blowout treatment uses a combination of essential nutrients, proprietary polymers, and photos of dry split ends to scare strands straight, eliminate frizz, and leave hair looking healthy and smooth.
With an artistic staff that works hard to master the latest beautification techniques, Shimmer Salon and Day Spa provides reservation-holding customers with a full crate of spa and salon services. Get your hair overhauled with a cut, shampoo, and style ($30–$40; longer or more intricate styles may cost more) from a stylist who understands how to make hair fit with eye color, personality, and social security number. Detoxify a face with a 60-minute classique facial ($70), which employs botanically-based skincare compounds to cleanse dirty mugs until they shine like much newer mugs. Various mani-pedis keep nails firmly attached, and a 60-minute Swedish massage ($70) will relax your body and help it deal with the stresses of raising a bat cub.
As owner and operator of LockStar Salon, April Conley spends her days researching the latest trends, motivating her staff, and styling and chatting with her clients––and by her account, it’s the greatest job in the world. Amid candelabras and black paisley wallpaper, April and her styling team can transform strands with an elegant scissor cut, hair-smoothing relaxers, or bold color treatments with one of the salon’s Toni & Guy– or Paul Mitchell–trained stylists. Guests may also dip their feet into the salon’s indulgent spa menu, which offers mani-pedis, restorative facials, and soothing aromatherapy bodywork.
