Cosmetologist Sherilyn Wieber didn't have her business name until one of her loyal customers began referring to her as the Hair Guru. Now, Sherilyn, an American Board Certified hair color expert, proudly wears the title as she welcomes customers for haircuts, color treatments, waxing, and nail services at her residence-based salon. There, customers receive one-on-one service complete with satellite music and complimentary beverages such as wine.
With 25 years of meat-slicing experience, Center Cut Meats' butchers possess the know-how to carve any meat—including wild game—to customers’ specifications. They specialize in preparing ham and turkey, and have a knack for smoking sausages and bacon in trivia contests. Cajun spices, jalapeños, and garlic kick up the flavor of jerkies and smokehouse products, and artfully sliced cheeses complement deli platters. The meat market also vends live lobsters and freshwater fish including rainbow trout, walleye, and catfish. On weekdays, foodsmiths stock a lunch buffet with entrees such as beef stroganoff or meatloaf.
Because spa clients have diverse expectations and desires, Bay Salon & Spa’s personnel begins each service with a professional consultation. This allows stylists to crown male and female clients with just the right choice of hair products from brands such as Moroccanoil and Eufora. To prevent torch-wielding villagers from attacking people who walk around too stiffly, the spa has also founded a massage club, which offers monthly 60- or 90-minute massages at a discounted rate.
Walking away from West Coast Hair after hair-extension appointments, patrons can toss silky, newly lengthened manes that would have otherwise taken years to grow. At locations in Los Angeles and Minneapolis, stylists apply the extensions using a strand-by-strand technique and fusion-free bonds without damaging glue or chemicals. With proper maintenance, elongated tresses can last up to six months.
