Natural light pours through The Hair Station’s large picture windows onto red leather furniture, vintage lamps, and sheering hanging tapestries Amid these decorative accents, Whitney Wilcox and Ashlee McDaniel craft artful new styles and rehab tresses with deep-conditioning treatments. The duo also specializes in healthy hair coloring and tinting with ammonia-free L’Oreal INOA.
The aestheticians at Artistique Wow Browz enhance their clients’ appearances with precision eyebrow threading, facials, and makeup application. Threading techs swiftly work a cotton thread back and forth to remove stray hairs and shape eyebrows into elegant curves, angles, or expressive semicolons. The four- to five-minute procedure is precise enough to target even miniscule hairs and is gentle enough to sidestep the irritation and swelling often experienced after facial waxing with duct tape. Newly sculpted eyebrows or eyelashes can be tinted, and threading can also be done anywhere on the face. For the rest of the body, the salon's aestheticians apply solar or acrylic nails and wax off body hair.
Oregon Nails is a deluxe nail and beauty spa specializing in on-trend nails, from gel polish to nail art, acrylics, and indulgent mani-pedis.

Oregon Nails also takes care of delicate features with signature facials and offers gentle full-body and facial waxing.
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.
At SkinTherapy, LLC, aesthetician Marly Sexton draws upon more than 12 years of experience to combat skin issues with custom facials that blend exfoliation, massage, steam treatments, and extractions.

But above all, Marly's mission is to tailor each treatment to the client's skin type and concerns, which is why she begins every service with a thorough skin analysis.
