The mother-daughter team of Alison and Kristen Pope boasts more than 30 years of combined experience in the professional pampering industry and run a. Salon Galleria & Spa with a soft, well-moisturized fist. Though Kristen originally followed in her mother’s footsteps to become a nail technician, she later added licensed cosmetologist, certified massage therapist, and hairstylist to her resume, which explains the lengthy roster of services that the salon boasts. Alison, Kristen, and their staff also host parties for children and adults, sometimes arming older customers with champagne flutes. Visitors can receive hairstyling or makeovers or dip toes into a heated whirlpool tub before each digit submits to buffing, shaping, polishing, and a rigorous cleaning behind their ears.

The salon's walls are painted to look like a jungle at this fun and funky salon, where kids even can play video games. Along with services such as colored hair extensions, french braids, and highlights, a licensed stylist creates fashion-forward cuts for boys and girls.
Sun seekers have options when they walk through the doors at Star Tans. Their skin gets steeped in bronzer shades in the spray tanning booth, while the tanning solution from the airbrush imparts a tan-colored mist to pale skin. Both of these work without light to give skin a sun-kissed glow without the risks involved with sunbathing outdoors, such as hornets building a nest under your knees. The lamps in the UV bed mimic the sun rays, which coax melanin toward the skin surface for a natural glow.
