Art's House of Beauty is an intimate salon devoted to hair, offering everything from chic cuts and vibrant color services to extensions. Licensed stylists work to give each customer a flattering new look, whether the service on the menu for the day is a relaxer or a classic shampoo, trim, and style. Come in to have cold fusion extensions put into place without the use of glue, or treat your head to the salon's Ultimate Therapeutic Scalp massage, a tingling treatment designed to stimulate hair follicles, relax clients, and send S.O.S signals with hair shininess if need be.
Hair contains 14 periodic-table elements including gold; you might as well treat it that way. La Pasch Hair Salon specializes in indulgent cut and color services to treat hair like the precious material it is. In the comfort or the salon's vibrant purple walls, stylists can highlight tresses, engineer fashionable layers, or reduce frizz with keratin straightening. Extensions and special-occasion updos are also available.
The stylists of Fusion Hair Studio boast more than 150 years of collective experience, in that time perfecting their techniques for working with all types of hair. Extensions are one of their specialties: clients can bring in their own or purchase them through the salon, choosing from fusion, sew-in, and braided styles. Natural hair clients can choose from an extensive selection of braiding services, opting for anything from cornrows and dreadlocks to Senegalese- and Havana-style twists. Of course, the stylists also perform cut and color, as well as relaxers and protein-based reconstructive treatments.
In addition to hair services, there's a pair of aestheticians on hand who nourish skin with "greens" facials and accentuate faces with false lashes and makeup applications. A wellness practitioner detoxifies the body with contouring wraps, and can also help clients manage stress with Reiki energy-cleansing sessions and aromatherapy treatments.

Instructor supervision provides further education and ensures standard Toni&Guy quality.
The sound scissors make as they slowly but confidently close over a thatch of hair is as comforting to Brandy Wyrick as a child’s security blanket. She first heard that sound at a young age as her mother ran the gleaming edges through clients’ manes in her salon. Brandy spent weekends playing with mannequin heads as a child, later graduating to real heads at Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy. Today, she recreates those same snipping sounds inside Hair By The Square and during any open mic event she comes across.
