As Paula Cole grew up, money was a little tight. She decided to do her part for the neighborhood by picking up a pair of shears and becoming the neighborhood hair dresser. Her experience led to expertise, and her expertise earned her the title of Master Educator. Today, she styles hair at Locks And Strands Beauty Salon, helping men, women, and children look their best. While she snips hair, her coworkers relax clients with massages, paint intricate nail art, or weave extensions into existing dos.
Paula and company conduct all services within Locks And Strands Beauty Salon's intimate studio. As they paint nails, apply facial masks, or trim hair, clients relax in leather-upholstered chairs or admire the flowing locks of the woman featured in the shop's full-floor mural, whose well-styled hair remains pristine no matter how many people step on it.

Animal prints add style and flair to Star Image Salon & Spa’s chic decor, which is rivaled only by the chic hairstyles crafted by the talented staff. Keune Haircosmetics, Pravana, and gluten-free Surface products aid the artists during appointments, whether it’s for a simple cut or the application of highlights, lowlights, or miner headlights. Staff members flatten strands with the Keratin Complex smoothing system, which straightens curls and fights frizz, and treat men not only to new hairstyles but also to diligent beard grooming and conditioning. Skin specialists completely strip away unwanted fuzz with warm wax, readying faces and brows for the salon’s makeup artists. Facials and chemical peels soften skin, and Norvell airbrush-tanning solutions outfit physiques with a natural-looking glow.
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.
Peek your head into one of the many elegant semiprivate styling stations at Salon Milan and you'll spot Alicia Keesee with her brow furrowed as she carefully snips locks into fashionable dos or blow-dries them into curls. On other days you might see her rifling through bottles of professional Redken, Enjoy, and Biolage products, preparing to highlight her clients’ locks in professional colors. As the skilled stylist works, her colleagues bustle about the stations around her, administering professional waxing services, manicures, and pedicures as customers recline on sleek black styling chairs and cushy massage armchairs.
