With a full menu of haircare, hair-color, texture, and waxing services, True Salon will have your head fashionably remodeled and bolted back on in a snap. Defuzz with a full-face waxing ($50+) or add interest to alluring fuzz with an eyebrow ($15+) or eyelash tint ($25+). A haircut/style for women ($50+) with base color ($55+) and deep-conditioning treatment ($15+) often translates into a youthful strut and a plethora of compliments from friends, strangers, and the insides of hats.
The stylists at Pageboy Salon pamper clients in an eclectically furnished cottage with vintage furniture, a juke box, and an animal-skin rug. Blade handlers tame locks with a snip, clipping away unruly dead ends and shaping-up layers with military precision and threats of a crew cut if strands don't fall in line. After locks are pared down, technicians blow-dry and style fibers for a soft, shining finish.
More than 20 years ago, Christy Bobo got her start in the hair industry in a little salon. She worked there for a long time, observing the owner's successes and mistakes, formulating a plan on how she might someday run her own business. She got the chance, eventually purchasing the salon where she started and renaming it Salon Be.
To round out her list of services, Christy joins forces with friend and fellow veteran hairstylist Bjorna Brantley, who specializes in cuts and colors. "At Salon Be, all cuts are specialty cuts," Bjorna says. She always consults with clients before touching scissors or foil to make sure they agree on every little detail. When the client arrives for the service, she dives right in, ensuring a succinct visit that fits neatly into busy schedules or temporary lulls in car chases.
At NuBody Concepts of Memphis, three MDs pool their experience to perform advanced cosmetic treatments with virtuosic skill. They’ve used their expertise with Aqualipo—a process that infuses liposuction with water to minimize downtime and discomfort—to train other doctors in the procedure, and appeared on Channel 9's Eyewitness News doing a real surgery. Their other treatments include NaturalFill, which uses the body's natural fats to fill and contour the face, lips, buttocks, or doctoral theses. Though the procedures wield state-of-the art technology, the office itself has a homey vibe: yellow walls, plush couches, and flat-screen TVs keep patients comfortable on visits.
Whether she’s wielding scissors, handpicking products from Tocco Magico and Pureology, or applying an exfoliating honey wax, Susan Murray harnesses her experiences as a skilled stylist and aesthetician to pamper her clients. She welcomes her slate of loyal customers inside her welcoming, light-strewn space, which doubles as a sting-free sanctuary for customers who like to throw pebbles at neighborhood beehives. Inside, she can also be found experimenting with her own hair color, changing it from a fiery red to blond and back to red again, the hue that she declares “suits my personality the best.”
The aestheticians at Natural Nails by Nicki reinforce natural strength and shine with a variety of beautifying products and artificial enhancements.

The aestheticians also keep their studio sparkling clean by sanitizing equipment with hospital-grade disinfectants.
