For close to a quarter century, the staff at HeadTurners Salon and Wellness Spa have been helping people look and feel better with a menu of relaxing treatments that earned the Hutchinson News Readers’ Choice award for Best Day Spa and Hair Salon in 2009 and 2010.
In the salon area, cosmetologists customize cuts and colors at 15 hair stations, and nail technicians pamper hands and feet. Two licensed massage therapists loosen muscles with aromatherapy or heated stones, and aestheticians clarify faces using the Clinical Care Skin Solutions line. The spa also offers automated treatments for clients seeking high-tech relaxation and detoxification or guests who were raised by robots.
The crystal chandelier illuminates a copper-colored tin ceiling and lights the way toward a reception desk made of rich cherry. Guests can browse a selection of jewelry, clothing, and accessories in the boutique area.
Complexion Perfection’s licensed aesthetician Brianne Whitley keeps it simple. Her skincare treatments fall into two categories: facials and chemical peels. A selection of four facials is designed to combat specific complexion issues, while nine different chemical peels employ more aggressive blemish-fighting formulas still gentle enough for use on patients with rosacea, dry skin, or melodramatic noses.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all of the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in 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.
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.

The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
A natural-looking and natural-feeling decor. Very friendly and caring atmosphere. Our clients are very important to us.
Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
A number of the stylists have been to the Redken Exchange in New York for advanced education in haircutting, color, and blonding classes.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
After receiving their Cosmetologist degree, stylists go through an intensive nine-month education program. Once the program is completed, our team thrives to continue their education, attending national hair shows and specialized classes across America. Hair Experts also provides our team with education at the salon, where nationally-educated artists provide lessons. This gives our team a unique advantage before putting the Hair Experts brand on their work. You can be sure that your hair, spa and nail services will ensure a great experience.
