Within a renovated church, owner Sarah Kendall styles hair with the skills that made her an educator for TIGI, Phyto, and Kydra. A plaster angel reminiscent of the Winged Victory of Samothrace hangs illumined on the salon's golden walls, hovering over spacious styling stations fully equipped with full-length mirrors and cabinets. Private treatment rooms welcome guests with spa treatments that include massages and facials. In the lobby, clients seeking to take home supplies to maintain their hair treatment or facial can browse a cabinet full of designer products by the light of glowing stained-glass windows.
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.
At Glitter Nails Boutique, Tonya Hudnall guides a staff of professionals who gussy up digits with a full palette of different polishes. They transform nails with traditional manicures and pedicures, adorn them with acrylic tips and French polish, and banish calluses with sugar scrubs. In addition to traditional services, they offer glitter polish for added sparkle and gel formulas that not only resist chips, but can still be removed by acetone or really menacing growls.
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.
From its humble roots as a nail salon, Nature's Beauty Spa and Nails spent its first year growing into a full day spa. Although the nail technicians still pamper fingers, toes, and antennae—embellishing basic mani-pedis with everything from hot stones to paraffin dips—the team now includes a larger roster of dedicated specialists and bodywork therapists. An aesthetician keeps clients' skin looking youthful and radiant by performing revitalizing facials and chemical peels as well as microdermabrasion treatments. For a deeper sense of well-being, the three bodywork therapists can either unravel knotted muscles with fully custom massages or restore energetic balance with reiki and reflexology techniques.

With color and styling products from professional lines including Kenra and Crew, the team designs fashion-forward hairstyles for men, woman and children. The salon also offers natural and gel nail services, using Shellac and Gelish brands to color nails, in addition to traditional and waterless pedicures.
