Today, she's a master stylist, but before beauty school, Hali Owens focused on psychology while immersed in a criminal justice curriculum. Since shifting to her true passion, however, she's cultivated a service menu that ranges from bang trims to elaborate wedding updos topped with three-tier cakes. Despite all these choices, Owens advises guests not to get too overwhelmed: "Don?t worry about knowing exactly what you want," she says. "I am glad to help you decide and make the process as easy and stress-free as possible." Customers are able to relax in Owens's chair, knowing they can depend on her 15 years' experience and expert eye to shape and color the perfect hairdo. Her specialties help clients feel their best, and to Owens, that's the best part of the job: "My favorite moment," she says, "is when my client looks in the mirror at the finished look and I can see their confidence rise!"

To combat dull hair, Heather Hamilton recommends lime juice. Dousing hair with a couple teaspoons can help fight off dandruff and enhance shine. Inside The Grapevine Salon, Heather dispenses hair care recommendations like this one, chatting openly with clients as she performs trims, blowouts, and Pravana color treatments. In fact, she's a certified Pravana hair-color specialist, and regularly attends continuing-education events through the business's program. Its formulas are infused with keratin amino acids and silk proteins, which Heather likes for their ability to soften and strengthen hair, even coarser grays.
Keeping the lines of communication open is important to Heather, who feels it's the best way to keep clients happy. She further cultivates a dialogue by encouraging clients to bring in pieces of inspiration such as photos of well-known celebrities or well-sculpted topiaries.
The stylists at Belong Salon beautify clients with a full array of salon services, including cuts, coloring, and deep-conditioning treatments. To ensure people leave feeling and looking their best, owner and stylist Norma Miranda offers free consultations and pep talks with hair roots.
At Adorned Aesthetics, even the most familiar of skincare treatments, the facial, contains some surprises; the center's roster of nine different facials includes three services specifically designed for men as well as a Just Like Heaven exfoliation and massage treatment that lasts a full two hours. Two other services make use of some rare materials: the 24 kt. gold facial uses a gold serum and mask to reverse oxidation damage, and the Diamond Exfolight facial removes dead skin using the diamond-soled shoes that inspired Paul Simon to become a cobbler. When serums fall short, clients turn to the Bio-Roller, an FDA-approved micro-needle rolling system that treats wrinkles and acne without inflicting the downtime associated with surgery.
The spa can offer all of these treatments thanks to the expertise of Melanie Hamilton and Kathryn Hoffman, who are professionally certified and trained by Obagi Pharmaceutical Skin Care. This company also provides a few of the specialized products that they use during treatments on a variety of skin issues. Melanie and Kathryn, who are also trained in the formal modalities of the Valmont skincare line from Switzerland, stay sharp by attending classes, seminars, and conventions in the industry.
Customers can commence their visit to Lavish Salon & Spa by sipping a complimentary glass of wine or steamy tea while lounging in a handsome sitting room bedecked with a flickering fireplace. The Pure and Simple facial serves up a short and sweet second course of luxury, featuring 30 minutes of cleansing, exfoliation, massage, hydration, and more ($45+). Waxing treatments for areas including the chin ($15) and basic bikini line ($30) seek to unseat stubborn strands using warmed glamour-goo and copious Karate Kid references. The Brazilian wax, named after famed hair-eradicator Bartleby Brazil, is designed to whisk away weeks’ worth of mid-body bristles in fewer than 45 minutes, leaving those treated with ample time to pluck what is ripe from the metaphoric watermelon tree ($55).
