The staff at Aveda Caruh Salon knows what it’s like to want to bring your inner beauty to the outside. As their website says, “We think our exterior of our building looks awful and are glad that ‘beauty is on the inside.’” They may not be able to do much with the exterior, but owner Cyndi DeSoto and her salon and spa teams bring the beauty of their clients to the forefront with hair and skin services that use plant-based Aveda products and organic essential oils squeezed from delicate flower organs. Since it opened in 1988, the salon has not only expanded its space and gone from styling mullets to long layers and pixie cuts, it’s also been voted one of the Top 200 Salons in America by Salon Today magazine. It isn’t just the precision cuts and colors, clarifying facials, or muscle-soothing massages that make it a top salon; it’s also the exuberant spirit of the staff. On average, Caruh donates about $40,000 per year to local charities, and every first Thursday, the salon closes for three hours for the staff to meet, bond, and celebrate successes.

The team also exterminates smaller spider veins with sclerotherapy injections, which block the flow of blood into the vein and encourage it to disappear.
