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.
In The Pink Skin Care is the coalescence of founder Beth Anne Corbett's passion for skin care and her entrepreneurial spirit. As she has since opening the spa in 2000, Corbett customizes luxurious facials to each client's skincare needs. She typically incorporates exfoliation and extractions into sessions, leaving clients more relaxed than a sloth traveling through a speed trap. Her specialties also include lash and eyebrow tinting and waxing.
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.
The staffers at Zoe Nails & Spa know that there’s more to beautiful nails than a slick layer of polish. That’s why their manicure and pedicure services also focus on improving the overall health of the hands and feet by softening skin, refining cuticles, and massaging surrounding muscles with the help of organic Nu Skin products. Nail technicians select the skincare line’s lotions, scrubs, and creams to suit their clients’ individual needs, using the natural healing powers of plants and oils to reduce cellulite, relieve pain, or soften heels rough from carpooling with the Flintstones. Once skin is properly cared for, staff members then turn their attention to the nails, getting each one groomed and polished before crowning their work with a choice of OPI or chip-free Shellac colors. The pampering doesn’t stop with grownups, either—kids are also invited to spend a day out with Mom while seated in one of the salon’s youthful character pedicure chairs.
Visiting six bars in a single day usually results in a haggard appearance. But at The Body Bar, you can stop by six bars in anticipation of heading downtown for a seventh. That's because the staff specializes in beauty as its prime intoxicant, administering hair, nail, and other spa services at their respective stations. The Nail Bar gussies up fingers and toes with Minx adhesives or Gelish polish, both of which resist wear and tear for two weeks without the protection of fiberglass thimbles. At the Wellness Bar, massages soothe aches and the heat from an infrared sauna helps induce detoxifying sweat. Seasoned technicians strip away unwanted hair at the BeBare Bare, whereas the Blowout Bar’s stylists work with the hair you have, crafting quick new 'dos with washing and blow-drying. You can finish primping for a night on the town with a custom airbrush tan at the Bronze Bar, or head to the Beauty Bar for a makeup application, teeth-whitening treatment, or eyebrow and lash tint.
