During full-body massages, the licensed therapist soothes away aches and straightens out knotted muscles, focusing on the areas that hurt the most. For reflexology treatments, she turns her attention to points along the feet to help assuage ailments ranging from digestive issues to headaches.

Before Matt Ulsh took charge of his station at Salon at the Creek, he studied the art of hairstyling at the Aveda Institute. Over the course of his training, Matt picked up all of the skills necessary to cut, color, and style coifs from a team of qualified instructors. Now, at Salon at the Creek, he uses Kevin Murphy products to condition and style new ‘dos between exposed brick walls and black-and-white checkered floors. Located near the Jordan Creek Mall, Salon at the Creek offers ample parking for cars and armchairs outfitted with helium balloons.
Z-ba Salon Esthetic boasts an international team of stylists and aestheticians, whose goal is to work with clients to draw out their most flattering features and craft a look that emphasizes their unique personal style. They achieve this through a range of beauty services, from haircuts and coloring treatments to mani-pedis and facials. The European facial, for instance, revitalizes skin with exfoliation and a custom mask, and the Vitamin C Brightening facial combats fine lines that might signify customers' age or their tendency to fold their face into a paper airplane. Other treatments include full-body massages and sugaring hair removal.

The extra-artsy stylists inside The Art Salon & Spa pull double duty, making over their clients and creating works of art that hang on the walls. Vertical surfaces also showcase the owner’s own masterpieces and artwork from local artists. The colorful displays provide inspiration as stylists cut and color the hair on men and women, and trim bangs, beards, and stick-on mustaches. Waxing specialists miss nary a hair during sessions that include the bikini area, backs, legs, underarms, and the nose.
