At Tangles Hair Extensions, Kellie Smith transforms short haircuts into long, flowing tresses, bypassing the years that natural growth would take. She stocks clip-in and bonded extensions in hundreds of colors, as well as attention-grabbing feather extensions. Kellie, a stylist with 18 years of experience, also trims hair into chic styles and tames frizz with Brazilian blowouts.
For more than 19 years, Gail Andreas has gotten joy out of beautifying clients' nails and hair. As patrons recline amid heaps of pillows on love seats in Suite 22, she cuts and colors locks and removes unwanted hair with waxing services. During pedicures, feet prepare to glide across the salon’s pecan-hued hardwood floors or pass a soccer referee a love letter, and the nail technician uses acrylic nails to add colorful shells to fingertips.

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, such as the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Having grown up in Cottage Grove, Susan Tuthill takes particular pleasure in helping Prescott-area residents emanate beauty with her aesthetic treatments. Susan tailors each of these based on the individual's needs. Her chemical peels —which can reduce hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles—target the face, the neck, or the hands. Facials range from express sessions that last 30 minutes to complete treatments that last 90 minutes, or, slightly longer than the William Henry Harrison presidency. The full version incorporates galvanic and high-frequency currents to de-clog pores.
The skilled staff at Salon Onyx fuses creativity with precise technique to relax and make over men, women, and kids from head to toe. Whether seeking a soothing spa ritual or a hair upgrade, clients consult with the salon gurus to decide which service best suits their needs. The stylists sling a variety of professional products, including Kevin Murphy, Unite, Glymed Plus and Moroccanoil, and provide beverages such as coffee, cocoa, and pop to refresh beauty seekers between treatments. Committed to bolstering beauty for all situations, Salon Onyx also preps wedding-bound patrons.
