A unique sense of style permeates The Twisted Bohemian, from the stylists all the way to the salon's walls. The decor incorporates an industrial look, with faux street lamps, gunmetal-gray accents, and mirrors that hang from repurposed chainlink fence. It's the perfect setting for the stylists to let their creativity flow. After close consultations, they can color, cut, and style new looks for men and women. Aestheticians, meanwhile, can wax away facial hair or trim nails during mani-pedis.
The seven stylists of Beyond Hair Studio and Spa cut, color, snip, paint, and primp to keep hair and nails looking their snazziest. Patrons might stop by for quick new coats of nail polish or for wildly different new 'dos, but whatever the reason, they're treated to thorough, attentive service.
Salon Seven is a full-service salon and spa offering up relaxation, custom service, and a staff of stylists and technicians trained in the latest techniques. With a mani-pedi, both proximal and distal nails are delicately shaped, then brush dunked with polish from Essie, OPI, or CND. Massage and reflexology treatments complete the rigorous relaxation process. Salon Seven’s 4,000-square-foot space is decorated in lively colors and has an open, airy feel; after a 90-minute treatment within these relaxing confines, patrons will feel rejuvenated and ready to take on stressful daily tasks, such as hang-gliding over a mountain teeming with sharks.
Spring Garage Cuts specializes in men’s and military-style haircuts. Since co-owner Heather is a proud veteran of the US Air Force as well as a licensed cosmetologist, you could say she’s perched firmly in her wheelhouse. Along with co-owner Angel and a staff of dedicated stylists, Heather welcomes clients into an upbeat hair salon for haircuts, beard trims, and color cover-ups that conceal gray hairs. Here, paintings of barbershop poles share window space with American flags and messages to men and women in the service. But this support is much more than mere window dressing; the owners of Spring Garage Cuts salute their fellows in the service by offering discounts to all military, law-enforcement, and firefighter personnel.
From over-stuffed armchairs and pastoral paintings to soft sconce lighting and earth-hued walls, the bi-level Middleton Salon and Spa exudes tranquility. Floral accents add to the mix, creating an environment that interweaves homestyle comfort with spa and salon services. There, massage therapists coddle bodies with stress-buster and relaxation massages, a squad of aestheticians buffs away dead skin cells during microdermabrasion treatments, and a trip into the sauna helps physiques sweat out toxins. Before venturing back into the high-stress world of deadlines and surprise job interviews, patrons relax in salon chairs while stylists calm unruly strands with Brazilian blowouts, custom haircuts, and luxurious extensions.
Hair stylist Darla of HairGuru719 can be found at her station inside Awesome Salon, cutting hair with the skills she’s learned over 20 years as a professional and several years as an amateur., Cutting hair "is all I remember wanting to do since I was really little," she said. "My mom told me that when I was about three, I got a hold of some clippers and shaved our Saint Bernard." It didn't stop there. She and a friend played a lot of beauty shop, during which Darla couldn't resist actually cutting her friend's hair with safety scissors. It was only a matter of time before she became a professional, and today, Darla continues to customize stylish cuts and colors for clients.
