Whether working with clients who have allergies to harsh chemicals that reside in many beauty products, or just pampering the way nature intended, Natural Solutions' staff employs a roster of gentle, all-natural ingredients for every service. Featuring ammonia-free hair color and perm services to help maintain mane health without stripping proteins or essential moisture and leaving hair vibrant and shiny. Even their makeup, which can be purchased to take home or applied in house, is free of harmful ingredients?the salon is an authorized bareMinerals retailer, and features hundreds of cosmetics.
As a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, Accentrix's Salon and Spa integrates Paul Mitchell products into nearly every treatment. Stylists enrich manes with award-winning shampoos in the washhouse, and infuse hair with botanical styling aids at haircut stations. After a haircut or dye job, clients can take a seat at the toolbar—a workbench outfitted with salon-grade flat irons, round brushes, and monkey wrenches—and learn to reproduce their hairstyle at home. In addition to salon services, Accentrix offers spa services that enhance nails, bodies, and complexions while relaxing the mind.
Licensed cosmetologist and make-up and nail artist Doreen Matheny has a passion for making her clients look and feel their best, earning a coveted Brides' Choice award from WeddingWire in 2011–13 and the Couples' Choice award in 2014–15. Her skill set spans a wide range of cosmetic treatments, from soothing spa mani-pedis and natural hair removal, to wedding day makeup packages and natural-looking sunless tanning.
Speaking of tanning, each of Doreen's UV-free spray tans is a work of art applied by a real-life skilled technician, not an orangey glow obtained by an automated booth or an accidental fall into a vat of molten butterscotch. As a result, customers can expect a natural, glowing bronze customized to their specific skin type and tone.
The hours pile up quickly at cosmetology school. But it?s worth it?when students graduate, they can become members of Upscale Hair & Nail Day Spa. The spa?s beauty pros spend their days transforming visages with freshly mixed hair dye and sharpened scissors. The hairstyles, which range from classic bobs to modern asymmetrical layers, are only a portion of the spa?s offerings. Nail technicians focus on clipping, filing, and buffing fingernails and toenails before covering them in eye-catching polish hues and smiley-face stickers.
At Headquarters Hair & Nails, Nikki Harrell specializes in pampering patrons with manicures and pedicures. Each fingernail or toenail is topped with brushstrokes of vibrant lacquer. Nikki doesn't overlook other important elements of nailcare, though. That's why she trims cuticles, sculpts nail edges, and folds crisp hospital corners into nail beds.
The artists at Dazzlin' Dezignz Salon & Spa are used to working on small canvases. They expertly decorate clients' nails with peacock prints, neon art-deco designs, and replicas of the Sistine Chapel ceiling. A crackling fireplace provides all the background music needed for a relaxing pedicure, held in one of the spa?s private rooms. In other rooms, clients relax during massages and hair-extension applications.
