Honored as one of Salon Today ’s Salons of Distinction in 2011, Salon Debonaire perfects the art of hair adjustment with a host of lavish services that employ products from upscale brands such as Unite, Bio Ionic, and Onesta. Throughout the day, knotted clumps of hair flutter to the salon’s Brazilian-rosewood floors, their protestations drowned out by a symphony of snips as stylists craft textured and contemporary precision cuts. Coloring products from professional and USDA Certified Organic lines infuse newly minted hairdos with all-over color or partial highlights, and skilled aestheticians expel facial hair using wax or soybean-based Nufree. As the salon’s skilled stylists focus on their work, customers sip coffee inside a TV-equipped lounge or fling their wet mops against the wall to contribute to the salon’s modernist decor.

Five tattoo artists make River City Tattoo their sacred studio, and each one has an inking style all their own. A quick look at the team's portfolio highlights these subtle differences. Adam Marton, for example, emblazons skin with colors from across the spectrum, while Ashly's monochrome markings express just as much in black and white. Ranging from abstract to classic?and everything in between?the team's eclectic designs are nonetheless unified by the artists' dedication to self-expression. Of course, sometimes those expressions won't make sense in the future's arcane hieroglyphic language, so River city can also remove existing tattoos permanently.
A Paul Mitchell signature salon, Coiffureous George outfits fashionable forelocks with a bevy of beautifying services and products plucked from international design books. After redefining a fusty look with a custom cut and style, the salon's skilled stylists manicure manes with Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger treatment, reshaping locks into dapper ’dos crafted from newly strengthened, protected, and hydrated tresses. A 10-minute stay beneath a blow dryer helps evict excess moisture and lock in good-looking shocks of hair, and a 10-minute massage eases scalps stressed after attempts to count every hair on your head.
Owner Adia Winston draws from her background as a licensed nurse, aesthetician, and massage therapist while carrying out Luminous Skin Care and Wellness's approach to health and beauty. Bodies are healed and pampered head to toe as Adia performs restorative chemical peels and therapeutic massage. Faces show off reduced fine lines, sun damage, or acne scars after renewing chemical peels designed for dehydrated or sensitive skin. For the rest of the body, a massage therapist relieves mental, physical, and extradimensional tension with customized treatments that blend Swedish and deep-tissue modalities with aromatherapy and energy work.
The stylists at Teresa & Friends Hair Studio are versatile. They can just as easily shave a man's head as they can style a woman's hair into a side-swept bob, complete with multidimensional highlights. They use their styling savvy to give back to their community, too; they donate free haircuts to the homeless, and they hold Cut-A-Thons to raise funds for charities.
