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.
The aestheticians at Esthetiques Skin Spa have all long held an interest in skincare, even dating back to childhood for one pro who gave herself mud-pie facials. While mud is conveniently left off the menu, the team does unfurl Intraceuticals products, glycolic-acid peels, and a Nuface microcurrent toning device to revitalize tired mugs and combat acne, sun spots, and fine lines. They also adorn fresh canvases with spray tans that leave bodies looking bronzed and beautiful.
The licensed nail technicians at Karina's Nails primp fingers and toes with name-brand beauty products from OPI, Orly, and Essie. Inside the salon, posters and a flat-screen TV splash black and white walls with subtle color as nail technicians cradle hands on comfy black cushions. During pedicures, bodies melt into plush upholstered chairs, each furnished with a whirlpool tub and a miniature lifeguard to prevent hazardous toe splash fights.
