Cuttin' Loose Salon is mere minutes from the rippling waters of the Gulf Coast and has been ranked one of Florida's top three salons for eight years running by Independent News. Golden-yellow walls and brick accents fill the space with bright charm as expert stylists use Matrix and Redken products to transform tresses with color, keratin treatments, and trendy cuts. Walk further back, and you'll step into the tranquil bodywork studio to encounter the salon's licensed massage therapist, Ann Sheppard, who has turned Pensacola's muscle frowns upside-down for nearly 10 years. She calls on the skills she learned at the Pensacola School of Massage Therapy and Health Careers and from training with a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine to both foster total relaxation and target pain stemming from injury or chronic conditions—she's treated everyone from pro athletes and coaches to expectant mothers and patients reeling from recent join-replacement surgery. Rather than sticking to one modality throughout her massage sessions, she calls on a number of techniques, picking and choosing her approach depending on what her clients require.
