Stylist Amy Ritchie has spent two decades in the beauty industry, with 18 of those years seeing her firmly situated at the helm of her own salon. Inside the family-oriented Expressions Hair & Nail Salon, the color specialist keeps heads healthy and shiny, adding face-framing layers or dimensional highlights with color from Scruples True Integrity. Expressions also offers manicures, pedicures, and waxing to keep the whole body looking well-pruned, and massage services can be booked to help clients achieve that well-rested, fresh-from-the-taffy-pull look.

Blatnik keeps gents looking dapper with beard trims and clipper cuts, while ladies look stunning with formal up-dos, highlights, and flat iron treatments.
To create a tranquil, relaxing experience, The Spa of Cool Springs incorporates elements of nature into both its treatments and its decor. Guests walking into the reception area are greeted by comfortable brown leather armchairs and a substantial marble-and-stone desk. In the treatment rooms, deep-green walls and botanically inspired prints bring the outdoors in. Therapists perform a variety of massage modalities within their dimly lit hallows, using earthy tools such as warm river rocks and brown-sugar scrubs. During skincare treatments, the fragrant and sustainably farmed ingredients in Éminence Organic Skin Care products soothe weary skin. Aestheticians promote a balanced complexion with probiotics and tea-tree oil, or employ a citrusy, herbal formula to target men's ingrown hairs or stubborn Muscle Milk mustaches.
