Styling expert Darrell Grant has reshaped hairdos and trimmed back overgrown strands for more than two decades. Clients can ease into styling chair for a quick cut and style, or hang around for a more in-depth treatment, such as luminous highlights or a complete color change. Darrell also irons out kinks and blocks frizz for up to six months with keratin blowouts.
After five years lavishing clients from its Brookside locale, Mirabella Salon and Spa has expanded to a new Tulsa location inside the Montereau retirement village. At both locations, massage therapists pore over muscles with Swedish or deep-tissue strokes, groom and decorate fingernails, and reduce skin blemishes that resemble topographical ski-resort maps with a slate of nourishing facials. Separate men's and women's facilities at the Montereau location allow for maximum comfort and privacy during Botox treatments, microdermabrasions, and waxing services, but guests can come together at the Spa Cafe to chat or feast on smoothies, wraps, and salads.
With the wisdom of more than 30 years of experience, hairstylist and owner Sheila oversees haircuts and styles at Absolutely You Salon & Spa. Sheila and her co-stylist, Greg, stay up-to-date on the latest trends with continuing-education classes and eagerly apply their new skills to updos, salon parties, and color treatments. An on-staff massage therapist supplements the salon services with Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
As far as first impressions go, Impressions Salon and Spa’s most eye-catching accent is its floors. From the entrance, the concrete surface resembles an elaborate charcoal drawing with streaks of black and sepia. Purple and steel-gray walls only add to the ambiance. Redken-certified stylists transform tresses with custom coloring treatments and scissor cuts that leave hair as sleek as a smooth-coated otter on date night. Clients may also request restorative mani-pedis or retreat to a private room for relaxing bodywork from the salon's licensed massage therapist.

What’s your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part is after doing a series of treatments on a client and measuring them or taking that after photo. When I see they have lost 4–6 inches or their fine lines and wrinkles diminish.
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
All the TBS staffers are trained professionals who have been working with clients for a long time. This is such a fun, easy, relaxing process for the client, that it's not hard to make people feel at ease.
Anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
The Alma Accent laser is the newest, most cutting-edge technology in nonsurgical liposuction lasers. We see results with every treatment. Even if they are minor, a series of a few minor differences become a major difference. Clients are never disappointed.
