With its red-brick façade and white-trimmed windows and doors, Trendies Salon & Day Spa could easily be mistaken for a cozy family home. Inside, despite the hairstyling stations and private spa rooms, the familial atmosphere persists; owner Kristin Ridge and her staff, after all, are like one big happy family. The team greets every client with a smile before embarking on a haircut or color service such as highlights or ombre. In the spa, aestheticians pamper skin with custom facials and teen-specific treatments geared toward battling acne and erasing forehead graffiti. Nails receive TLC at Trendies too, thanks to soothing manicures and pedicures and skin-softening paraffin dips.

They also tend to each client's hair with the best treatments, infusing strands with hair care products from sought-after lines such as Surface, Matrix, and Inoa.
