Anetta Hoover transforms wild locks with stylish cuts and colors, as well as keratin express treatments, which eliminate 95% of frizz and leave manes glossy and straight for up to eight weeks. Within the boutique salon, Anetta will slather the advanced keratin-infused formula onto clients' strands, commanding it to penetrate deep into the cuticle with a bond that promotes healing and protects follicles from environmental toxins and environmentalist canvassers. Next, she will blow-dry hair and finish the 'do with a careful flat ironing to lock strands straight into place and complete the frizz-free look, leaving skull-capes shiny, smooth, and ready to battle humidity like an air conditioner brandishing a sword. Folks with already-straight hair can redeem this Groupon for a stylish haircut with a choice of all-over color or partial-foil highlights, also performed within the exposed brick walls and sunny yellow décor of the chic salon.
Cuttin' Loose Salon is mere minutes from the rippling waters of the Gulf Coast and has been ranked one of Florida's top three salons for eight years running by Independent News. Golden-yellow walls and brick accents fill the space with bright charm as expert stylists use Matrix and Redken products to transform tresses with color, keratin treatments, and trendy cuts. Walk further back, and you'll step into the tranquil bodywork studio to encounter the salon's licensed massage therapist, Ann Sheppard, who has turned Pensacola's muscle frowns upside-down for nearly 10 years. She calls on the skills she learned at the Pensacola School of Massage Therapy and Health Careers and from training with a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine to both foster total relaxation and target pain stemming from injury or chronic conditions—she's treated everyone from pro athletes and coaches to expectant mothers and patients reeling from recent join-replacement surgery. Rather than sticking to one modality throughout her massage sessions, she calls on a number of techniques, picking and choosing her approach depending on what her clients require.

The iron curlicues and elegant lettering on the sign in front of Le Salon aren’t just decorative—without them, it’d be difficult to notice the salon there at all. Flowers bloom, palm trees lean, and flags flap around the neat brick-and-stucco bungalow, which blends right into a block of vintage wood houses. It’s equally homey inside, where a family of four stylists snips and lathers as women, men, and children sit before old-fashioned vanity tables, sink into a paisley sofa, or stretch out on the gleaming wood floor. The stylists are happy to share the secrets to getting the most out of their wide lineup of Redken products, and they will gladly special order anything they don’t have so clients can take home the latest in smoothing treatments or bottled hair.
