SassaFrass Salon and Boutique’s stylists and aestheticians skillfully snip locks in a friendly salon that boasts bubblegum-pink and magenta striped walls. Stylists’ hands deftly give dimension to tresses with highlights, add luxurious length with hair extensions, and wax away unwanted moustaches. For those looking to retouch skin rather than hair, the salon’s SunStar tanning beds and organic airbrush tanning give bodies a coppery glow, helping clients look at home at the beach even before they’ve moved into their new three-bedroom sandcastle.
The seasoned stylists at The Loft approach each haircare service with a practiced understanding of technique and aesthetics. Led by owner Lynn Vermont, the team boasts members with decades of experience at both delivering trendy treatments and even owning salons of their own. Whether they're snipping hair into a summer-ready 'do, imbuing locks with an updated hue through full or foil coloring, or gracing fingertips with a sturdy set of acrylic nails, team members leave their clients significantly more fashionable than they were when they arrived. They also specialize in wedding parties, prepping brides, maids of honor, and reception food-tasters for the special day with breathtaking updos and designs.
Part salon, part spa, and part photography studio, Gossip in the City is manned by three teams of specialists adept in their fields. Salon-goers choose from hair- and nailcare menus or sit back as their skin is dusted with makeup and spray tan dispatched by a precise airbrush. Spa services include facials and peels, and for whole-body pampering, guests opt for hot-stone massages and all-over salt scrubs. The studio’s skilled photographers capture newly glamorous looks during photo shoots, sending clients home with 8"x10", 5"x7", and wallet-sized portraits.
Nixa Hair Studio stylists comb Redken, Paul Mitchell, and Joico products through clients’ hair both before and after they sheer off split ends and sculpt new looks. Wielding years of experience—some more than a quarter of a century—the team helps clients achieve chic and traditional looks fit for special occasions and casual everyday wearing. Their broad range of services, such as cuts, color, and conditioning, spill from ladies’ heads onto male customers’ faces in the form of beard and moustache trims.
Celeste Duckworth received her cosmetology license in 1968 and followed that up with 47 years of salon experience, including owning and operating three salons of her own. The culmination of her extensive career blossoms inside Amore Salon and Spa, where she designs and styles hair with an artistic temperament and well-honed technique. Celeste specializes in formal design and has a skilled eye for beautifying bridal parties in preparation for their big day.
Owner and stylist Courtney Hunt enjoys the sound of her clients’ voices. That’s because she likes to involve her clients in their transformations by offering a consultation with each visit and welcoming feedback during services. Visitors can opt for a wet or dry haircut and repair damaged strands with an Awapuhi Wild Ginger Keratin Treatment. Courtney can treat frizzy hair with keratin-smoothing treatments or whisk away unwanted strands with facial waxing, which leaves skin as smooth as Tom Cruise’s glass eye. For home haircare, she provides information and sometimes discounts on products, such as Paul Mitchell's Awapuhi Wild Ginger Luxury.
