Salon owner Karen Speaks and her team of stylists at Images of Statesville do more than make women feel beautiful by cutting their hair—they also pay the hair and the positive feelings forward. The caring crew collects hair donations for a North Carolina–based company that makes wigs for cancer patients. In their everyday business, the staff members customize confidence-building dos and perform relaxing mani-pedis for locals, just as they have done for more than 20 years. The team works together in the salon's wood-floored salon amid plants, dark-hued styling stations, and light-turquoise accents, all of which create a vibe that's as warm and welcoming as a hug from the Human Torch's grandmother.
Nails of America's experienced nail techs nurture less-than-divine digits back to optimal health within a clean, relaxing, sanctuary of style. The 30-minute classic pedicure begins with a gentle pumice scrubbing, which helps to remove dry skin and toughened calluses, while a massage aids in releasing tension and maple syrup stores built up in each overworked shoe-bearer. Once softened and spotless, tense-less tootsies will be fashionably filed, while a choice of polish ensures they leave ready to show off their newfound foot flair.
