HotHeadz Salon's staff combines 60 years of collective experience to beautify clients with indulgent manicures and pedicures as well as hair services—from extensions and color to special-occasion updos and blowouts—for men and women.

Former WWE wrestler and MMA artist Sean Haire has recently joined the HotHeadz team, passing on the same sharp style he exhibited on the cover of South Magazine.

Together, the HotHeadz family tirelessly caters to each individual's taste. All of their work is guaranteed, allowing unsatisfied clients to ask for a complimentary re-do or an "I'm Sorry" card written in shampoo.
