Jennifer, the stylist responsible for turning first-time visitors to Salon Studio and Spa into loyal clients, employs seven years of haircare experience to design the most flattering coiffures for each individual. She also uses only high-quality products, including those by Pureology and Kevin Murphy. During a women’s, men’s, or kids’ haircut, Jennifer snips away at strands to fashion custom head-top masterpieces. She also arranges hair into updos to prepare clients for formal bowling tournaments and uses Keune Professional Color products to add fashionable new shades without attaching a chameleon with a bobby pin. Patrons can spiff up areas below the hairline with an eyebrow shaping using tea-tree wax or with a long-lasting Gelish manicure.
Salon Exposé's savvy stylists update ‘dos with contemporary cuts and natural-looking color using Italian-made Davines haircare products. Trained colorists can brighten drab locks with a two-color partial foil highlight or permanently dye strands to match your favorite movie star's workout wardrobe using a milk-protein conditioning color system that tints tendrils while adding softness and shine. Strategically executed snips and a fresh style update newly hued tresses with texture, sleek edges, and increased aerodynamic lift on particularly windy days. The clean white walls, dark furniture, and geometric artwork lend a modern ambiance to the bright and airy salon.
In 2010, hair stylist Amy Pering turned away from her job in the corporate world to pursue her passion in cosmetics and hair styling. A quick learner, by August of 2011 she had already graduated from a Paul Mitchell school and was ready for the next chapter of her life: helping others look and feel their best. After whetting her professional appetite at another Prairie Village spa, Amy opened her own salon—Love Your Body Beautiful—where she hopes to impress the message in her business name onto her clients. Today, clients come to her salon for her precision cuts, styles, and coloring done with professionally trusted Paul Mitchell products and never products from imposters like Shmaul Shmitchell.
Since it’s housed in a quaint building on Rainbow Boulevard, it’s no secret how The Boulevard Barber Shop got its name. Of course, it’s not called the shop for nothing. With minimum frills, this men’s shop is indeed one of the top spots to go for a haircut, straight-edge shave, and advice on winning an arm-wrestling match against a bear. Skilled barbers, Andrew and Daniel, clean up the mop-tops of adults and kids, and can even etch signature designs into hair—such as initials or lucky numbers—upon request.
Rather than straightening out textured hair, the stylists at Naturally Unique Salon celebrate its diversity, working with everything from wavy locks to kinky manes. They kick off each styling session with an in-depth consultation before they cut and color hair or perform conditioning treatments, which hydrate strands better than a 10-gallon hat filled with water. Along the way, stylists use products specifically designed for curls, including brands such as Miss Jessie's, Design Essentials, and Mixed Chicks.
With 24 years of beauty-industry experience, the stylists at Shampoo Salon and Spa create classic or modern hairstyles with cutting, coloring, and texturing services. Hairstyling ranges from simple blow-dry styles to trendy spiral perms, and waxing is also available for men, women, and self-conscious stuffed animals looking to shed unwanted strands from the lip, chin, or brow.
