Warm vibes permeate the air at Morgan Ford Salon & Spa, where stylists shape fashionable hairdos and massage therapists knead away soreness and stress. The salon takes extra steps to assure clients' comfort. For example, each hair treatment—which utilizes Redken products—includes a steamed face towel, scalp massage, shampoo, and conditioning. Morgan Ford's massage therapists practice hot-stone, deep-tissue, and myofascial-release modalities, among other techniques. These bodywork sessions may also incorporate extras, such as heat therapy, aromatherapy oils, and scents, such as chocolate, pumpkin spice, or mango.
The first thing many people notice about Sheilah Collins is her chatty demeanor, but the owner of Selah the Art of Beauty has more to offer than a friendly conversation. In her nearly 20 years of industry experience, she has also come to appreciate the importance of quiet relaxation. She and her team of technicians do everything in their power to promote a stress-free and rewarding spa experience, using organic and vitamin-based products during their calming facial treatments and painting nails with specialty Shellac polishes that resist chipping. The spa’s massage therapists strive to meet the high bar set by their counterparts, unwinding tension and repairing shoulders’ antiquated, steam-powered gears with Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone techniques.
The only things more modern than Christopher Stevens the Salon's contemporary atmosphere—complete with exposed-brick walls and metallic accents—are the hairstyles exiting through its doors. Inside the chic loft space, stylists take manes of all colors, lengths, and textures and mold them into hip coifs. The staff includes stylists who specialize in cutting, coloring, and styling natural hair, as well as those who excel at applying natural-looking sew-in weaves or strand-smoothing relaxers, which are ideal for those with curly, frizzy, color-treated, or anxious hair.
Cosmetologist and aesthetician Traci specializes in color, haircuts, and natural hair, making her a triple threat. As a skilled colorist, she infuses hair with highlights and all-over color and performs color-correction services. As a snipping specialist, she shapes strands into trendy cuts. And as a natural-hair expert, she offers all types of sets for natural hair. When she's not cutting, coloring, and styling hair, she's busy performing skin-care services, such as waxing and facials, and specialty services, such as updos, weaves, and feather extensions, which come in handy on fishing trips.
Inside 212 Salon & Spa, stylist Bridget Caradine uses her Paul Mitchell training to create stylish, healthy hair.

Alongside more traditional hairstyles, she also can apply feather extensions to create a pop of color and texture. She works with clients of all ages, so families can come in for a complete hair makeover together.
