Owners Shannon and Rusty and their team of stylists look thoughtfully at their client's botched self-dye job. Rather than stand in judgment, the staff focuses on which product from Pureology and Redken will help correct the color and restore health to the frizzled locks. This is a familiar scene at Rostik Salon, where a team of relaxed, friendly stylists nimbly transitions from creating glamorous waves to designing cuts for kids.
Accompanied by a stress-reliving massage, the Glo therapeutic facials use pumice crystals, enzymes, and masks tailored to clients' skin type to cleanse and exfoliate pores while moisturizing the skin. These sojourns may be extended with one of three different chemical peels or with a wrap that uses Chinese herbs to condition skin all over the body. Aestheticians also deftly wax away unwanted hair, revealing smooth skin that they accent with UV-blocking Glo Minerals makeup and Norvell spray tans that spare skin from UV rays.
Wurstle endeavors to revolutionize the classic American hot dog by concocting a menu of completely customizable and mess-free gourmet sausages. Three types of baguette encase half a dozen sausage choices—each MSG- and filler-free —in standard, junior, or mini-sizes, which customers can each crown with an array of toppings such as homemade mustard, spicy ketchup, or Wurstle-kraut. The kitchen crew trades in their deep fryer for the oven, complementing their hand-held feasts with healthful baked accompaniments of french fries, Nutella puffs, and piping hot sodas.
