Plum Tree Salon & Spa sits on a former plum tree orchard. In the same spot where workers once toiled picking and carrying produce through the fields, massage therapists and aestheticians now stand by ready to provide a relaxing getaway with Swedish massages and European facials. The spa also staffs eight licensed stylists, who are on call to help spur personal transformations. Using products by Moroccanoil and Pureology, they sculpt haircuts, embellished with color and texture that make hair look as healthy and refreshed as a vitamin that just returned from Hawaii.
Ever since hair started growing on its own in the mid-80's, it's been a tenuous battle for supremacy. At Luxury Salon & Spa, skilled stylists transform tresses with cut and coloring treatments augmented by Keune brand products and hydrate skin with all-natural Éminence brand products.
Sleek, modern design characterizes the decor at Pixie Salon. An entryway beckons with cool-mint walls, a crisp-white couch, and rounded chairs, and a quote on the wall gently inspires readers to dance in the rain. This stylish independent streak is at the heart of the salon’s mission to be a creative, open environment. Pixie Salon’s stylists draw on that artistic spirit to meet the needs of their clients, crafting new haircuts, colors, and foil sculptures with ease.
When it comes to making her clients feel beautiful, ReNu owner Feleshia Sams knows what she's doing. Years of work as a makeup artist and micropigmentation specialist gave her all the tools necessary to help her clients take on the world with a more confident stride. Some come to her seeking permanent makeup or medical pigmentation treatments—two of her specialties—that help improve permanent skin issues. She also offers fillers, eyelash extensions, facials, and skin-tightening treatments that make it no longer necessary to walk around holding your face taut all day.
Unlike many of her peers, Salon Aspire owner and stylist Taylor Andress continued her education in hairstyling long after she finished cosmetology school. As a Paul Mitchell–trained stylist, she's completed specialty classes in razor technique and color application, and holds certifications in keratin smoothing treatments and hair extensions. In fact, she's gathered so much expertise that she's spent time as an instructor, sharing her secrets with future stylists.
Alongside her knowledge and skill, Taylor calls on another secret weapon to forge fashion-forward hairstyles: premium styling products. After years of personal research, she's boiled down her selections to GK Hair, Woody's Men's Grooming, and Pravana ChromaSilk color—a line that, like a nonconformist dalmatian, comes in 101 shades.
