Knockouts Haircuts for Men's decor mimics that of a boxing ring, but—unlike the real thing—guests look fresher when they leave. Complimentary beverages greet the mitts of each client, and flat-screen televisions and quality service round out a first-rate experience. Your heavyweight treatment includes a consultation, before-and-after shampoos, cut, rinse, and styling according to your personal preferences. Each weary head will be treated to a scalp massage and one nametag identifying it as "Movie Actor Harrison Ford."
Kelli Langford has always been something of an artist; she just traded in the paintbrushes and pigments of her youth for the hairbrushes and hair dyes of a stylist. Working at New Image Salon, she mows her way through as much as eight inches of hair a day, but that's not where she feels her artistry comes into play. She finds her creative peak in styling and coloring clients' hair—a talent that has resulted in vibrant red tones and trendy ombre looks. But whatever the service, some things are always a given: salon-quality products and a strict policy against using cacti for hairbrushes. "I always test my products and get familiar with them before ever using them on a client," Kelli says.
The seasoned stylists at Strands Hair Salon offer an array of services to transform rundown rats' nests into stylish strand-domiciles guaranteed to sell above their asking price. If you have unruly tresses in need of taming, snip off the troublemakers with a cut ($13+ for men, $20+ for women) before whipping the remains into shape with a formal style ($20+). If a monotonous mane is to blame, obtain a more chromatic coiffure with highlights ($53+), or opt for a fresh all-over color ($15+ for men; $48+ for women) to imitate your favorite crayon. A textured wave ($53+) can liven up straight strands for springtime, whereas short shocks in search of flowing locks can benefit from extensions, a Strands Hair Salon specialty (starting at $125) generally more effective at adding length than pillowcases stuffed with lawn fertilizer.
Dr. Ellen Turner and her staff of aestheticians, physician's assistants, and medical assistants are passionate about what they do. In a mini-documentary about their practice, they all chime in about unearthing their clients' inner beauty and enhancing their self-confidence. Through their treatments, which range from facials to treatments for acne and rosacea, they focus on making a difference in their patients' lives. A lot of times this means bringing about change that makes patients happy to look in mirrors and unwilling to hide their faces beneath brown paper bags.
