Tonia Reed's first salon was modest. With only two stations and one other stylist, the beauty specialist found that her burgeoning skills and thriving client base were becoming too much for the space to handle. In 2004, she became enamored of a large Victorian-style home, and the site of In Vogue Salon & Spa was born. Decked in stately chandeliers and dark-wood bureaus, the salon surrounds its experienced hair, skin, and massage professionals with the same vintage inspiration that originally took hold of its owner. Clients take in a cup of flavored coffee or tea before basking in a massage or facial in a private treatment room or gazing into gilded mirrors as stylists sculpt locks and enrich them with vibrant colors. To polish the rest of clients' statures, technicians wax away unwanted hair and pull from a shelf of OPI products to groom and shape fingernails before they start biting themselves.

Inside a spacious home office warmed by a crackling fire, Venus Salon and Day Spa's three-person team uses products from brand names such as Schwarzkopf and Bioelements to restore softness and glow to clients’ hair and skin. In the salon, stylist Amanda Smart draws upon more than 10 years of experience to fashion updos, condition tresses, or permanently or temporarily imbue hair with custom color.
Meanwhile, licensed aesthetician Andrea exfoliates bodies with chocolate cherry sugar scrubs and faces with diamond microdermabrasions. She can also treat men’s skin concerns, removing blackheads and uncaught baseballs from pores during custom facials. Licensed massage therapist Mark kneads muscles with four variations on massage, including prenatal and hot stone.
The staff at The Reflections Salon & More tend to clients with services slated to enhance exteriors from fingertips to tresses. From simple trims to advanced, artful styling sessions, the shears-wielding professionals exercise diligence and tailor each snip to suit the client’s personality. The resident licensed waxing technician also assists clients by smoothing out bikini areas in preparation for wintertime trips to indoor water parks.
