Voted “one of the best salons in the state” in 2010 by Mississippi Magazine readers, Kosmos Hair Designers offers a jellybean-jar variety of beautifying spa and salon services. Your straightening treatment infuses keratin—a protein naturally found in skin, hair, and nails—deep into hair follicles, eviscerating frizz and curl from your head space and leaving hair smooth, shiny, and temptingly touchable. Unlike alternative salon processes, keratin treatment boosts hair health instead of knocking it down with a steel wrecking ball. Results last three to five months, depending on your hair’s texture and its propensity for running away with seductive Don Juan mop tops.
Allure Salon and Spa expertly snips and reshades strands and resheens tarnished finger armor, its beautification services earning it the title of Best Hair Salon in the 2009 Best of the WAPT A-List contest. Wander into the calming, urban salon space outlined in soothing teals and soft lighting and relax as a savvy stylist trims overgrown noggins into sleek heads fit to nap in a royal guest bedroom. Men can stop in for a simple cut, and feminine locks can get shampooed, cut, and styled before soaking up a color chosen to complement or precisely match their skin tone. Alternatively, a manicure and pedicure put an end to the nervous tapping of fingers and toes feeling slightly unkempt. Trimming, buffing, polish, and cuticle care can help nails shield their digits in style, and an exfoliating sugar scrub promotes the growth of candy-cane forests on the feet.

Since the tender age of 8, owner Laina Woodard Smith of Madison Cupcake Company has baked and ornamented cupcakes fueled by her passion for elegant design and fresh ingredients. In addition to traditional cupcake flavors, the company boasts daily specials of avant-garde medleys such as strawberry cheesecake, banana split, and malted milk ball. The company also vends frosting shots, dollops of sweetness topped with candy crumbles or fruit, and can produce customized baked goods to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, or the arrival of a brand-new box of checks.
Your hair?s sure to feel silkier once your stylist conditions it?learn why with Groupon?s close-up look at conditioner.
Although human hair may look smooth, each strand's outer layer?the cuticle?is actually quite rough. Under dry conditions, the tiny scales that cover its surface become raised and brittle, causing hairs to tangle and lose their shine. Conditioner aims to correct this problem by bonding a particular class of molecules, called cationic surfactants, to the cuticle. This is possible because keratin, the protein that makes up most of the hair shaft, bristles with negative ions, which attract the positively charged surfactants, coating each thread in a thin film that weighs it down and reduces frizz. (The negative charge of keratin is also what causes static whenever positive ions are stripped from the hair?the static that makes it possible to stick a balloon to the wall or to power a miner's headlamp.)
The other ingredients in conditioner don't always need ions to do their jobs well. Humectants suck in water from the surrounding air, thereby moisturizing the hair, and oils simply penetrate the cuticle. Glossers coat the hair with light-reflecting polymers, increasing shine, whereas other ingredients raise the acidity level of the conditioner, which helps protect the hair's protein structure.
It's no mistake that The Hair Nook has an old-school beauty-shop vibe: the salon has been open for more than 25 years. The staff's skills extend beyond traditional cuts and rollerwraps, though. Their extensive training shows through in a lengthy service list that includes everything from eyebrow arching to curly perms to braids and weave ponytails to facials.
