The students at Winonah School of Cosmetology hone their shampooing, coloring, and skincare talents during professional, hands-on training classes. They sharpen their scissor skills under the watchful supervision of licensed instructors, snipping away split ends and crafting flattering new ‘dos with confidence and precision. They also learn to navigate the chemical waters of perms and relaxers, in addition to extension installation and updos.
Although she holds 25 years of industry experience, Barbara Gray remains up to date on the latest nail trends. In addition to her standard nail services, Barbara can extend the life of mani-pedis with optional add-ons, such as coating nails with CND Shellac—a UV-cured formula that remains chip-free for up to two weeks. And in addition to pampering feet with pedicures, Barbara sells custom-fitted toe rings in sizes 1–18.
Specializing in all things hair, Mindi Patterson relies on her Aveda Institute training and years of experience when snipping and coloring her clients' locks. At Little Flower Day Spa, Patterson attends to each visitor, beginning with a personal consultation to discuss style, color, and the contents of their fridge. Additionally, Patterson offers skincare and makeup-application lessons, using products from BeautiControl.
At Little Flower Day Spa, licensed stylist and cosmetologist Holly Stovall cuts and conditions hair for men, women, and children. She straightens and smoothes hair with keratin treatments, adds vibrancy with color and highlights, and showcases her cosmetological cunning with makeup applications and prom and wedding updos.
Like its name suggests, True Colors Salon helps clients express themselves through vibrant hair color. Stylist Grace Smolin is particularly adamant about finding the perfect color for a client's skin tone and eye shade because she always wants hair to look as natural as possible. This might mean blending chocolate highlights—never platinum—into brunette hair to add dimension and even leaving a blond's roots a little darker to make it look like she was born with that color. Grace also creates modern cuts and straightens hair with keratin treatments, which can keep hair frizz-free for up to five months.
