Licensed aesthetician and massage therapist Kelly D Opelt-Andrews draws on years of medical and dermatological training to imbue skin with a youthful glow at her skincare and massage studio, Divine Beauty. Whether exfoliating skin with a microdermabrasion treatment or custom facial, Kelly relies on Apriori Beauty products that eschew parabens and synthetic dyes for natural, pH-balanced ingredients. Though she’s well known for facial treatments that restore a healthy luster to cheeks previously occupied by blemishes, Kelly’s skincare prowess does not stop at the neck. Her cleansing body treatments and massages lend equal attention to backs, shoulders, and vestigial tentacles.
Since 1955, stylists at Klein's have been crafting coiffures in a salon flooded with natural light. All of the salon's stylists are certified in Redken and Schwarzkopf products and can execute trendy styles. Some veteran stylists have had loyal clients for 40 years and have developed a mind meld with their scissors that defies our understanding of consciousness. The salon has not only upped its stylist training since its beginning but has also added spa services, including facials and gel-polish mani-pedis. Eyelash extensions, hair extensions, and keratin straightening treatments round out the selection of salon services.
E'dyeta Salon, formerly Escape Salon of Evansville, is different from ordinary chain salons. Here, stylists give their undivided attention and focus their expertise on the clients sitting in the chairs at their workstations. They discuss possible styles and trends before rolling up their sleeves for any number of services, from haircuts and coloring to chemical treatments.
• For $12, you get a haircut and style ($17.95 value) and deep-conditioning treatment ($10.95 value; a $28.90 total value). • For $30, you get a haircut and style ($17.95 value), partial highlights ($46 value), and a deep-conditioning treatment ($10.95 value; a $74.90 total value). A full-service salon for the whole family, Fantastic Sams has hair-savvy staff shearers that tame frazzled flax into more maintainable styles. All haircuts start with a soothing shampoo using Fantastic Sams' signature line of products intended to promote hair health and rid the cranium of laser-tag-related stresses. Whether clients plan to consult the stylist about face-flattering looks or replicate the head-hide of a favorite state senator, scissors-wielders snip and style ($17.95) each lock to match the desired look. Deep-conditioning treatments ($10.95) reach into locks’ recesses, infusing follicles with moisture as they wrestle four-square balls from playground bullies. Like a good movie of a classic novel, partial highlights ($46) introduce a subtle new hue but maintain the essence of the original.
Kahiki Tan gilds pale skin with high-caliber Ergoline tanning beds and quick airbrush tans powered by Norvell products. Beach-weary bods who enter the Hawaiian-themed salon can win the bronze by choosing either a Level 2 or Level 3 Ergoline bed, as each level is calibrated to imbue its inhabitant with a slightly different hue. After Kahiki's friendly, tan-tutored staff members help with bed selection, customers lie flat for an epidermal-shading session that takes only 15 minutes. Alternatively, UV-free airbrush tans can create natural-looking bronzings without heat, light, or lying down. As the tanee stands upright, Norvell sunless solution is gently misted onto the full body. Tans are complete in around five minutes, giving clients the satisfaction of not having to compete for the sun's attention with narcissistic solar panels.
