The interior of Roxy CarMichaels Salon conjures an industrial feel that complements the brickyard area surrounding the studio. Naked light bulbs dangle above the graphite-gray floor, and red metal toolboxes stand ready at every styling station, but this factory-like aesthetic is immediately contradicted by the staff members' warm greetings and personalized attention. The trio of master stylists listens to clients’ wildest hair desires while considering matters of texture and facial shape, recommending cuts that augment cheekbones, skirt jawlines, or cover up snapping mandibles. Translucent dividers portion the studio from the waiting area for a contemporary aesthetic that sets clients at ease while they sort through the coffee table’s mound of magazines.
Like all Aveda salons, Landis Aveda Lifestyle Salon helps polish clients' styles with earth-friendly, naturally derived products. After opening a location in Salt Lake City in 2005, the salon has since sprouted a twin location and focused on developing serious talent. Their stylists spend 18 months in training, working their way up from apprentice to Grand Salon level, gaining experience, training, and the ability to gently comb a hibernating bear’s hair without waking it.
Next Full Service Salon's staff includes nine hair stylists and two nail technicians. At salon chairs, the stylists sculpt new 'dos, straighten strands, and add color to hair.

Moore Hair Design's staff of savvy stylists keep their brains stuffed with up-to-date haircare trends, providing a variety of follicle fashioning and coloring services fit for the modern head and the hair attached to it. Cuts for women ($35–$50), men ($20–$32), and kids ($15–$25) include a sudsy shampoo and a blow-dry, and brides to be can pop into the shop for a formal styling ($70–$90). Wielding Infiniti by Affinage, an Italian hair-coloring product, Moore's team performs custom coloring procedures, from a partial foil ($75–$90) to a single-process color ($65–80 for women, $40–$65 for men). The Moroccanoil blowout ($28) straightens out uncooperative scalp squatters, which have been known to suddenly grow in every direction at once if not given a proper styling.
Pampering customers for 29 years, Orlando's Salon ensures skin and strands scale new heights of beauty with expert hair, waxing, and tanning services.
