With 37 years of experience to her name, Mitzi Sanders leads the staff at both her Goodlettsville and Gallatin salon locations. Stocked with products from Matrix, Paul Mitchell, and Redkin, the crew goes to work prettying up heads by rendering an extensive selection of tress-focused services. More than just a hair salon, Mitzi's boasts the full spectrum of body-bronzing methods; they offer traditional tanning, spray tans, and giant vats filled with melted butterscotch candy.
A slew of stand-up, lie-down, and airbrush tanning options make up Solarium Tan Spa's retinue of skin-gilding services. Patrons looking for a deep bronze hue can opt for a month of unlimited access to the salon's level-two and stand-up beds, spending 15 minutes soaking in rays to achieve a sun-kissed glow without joining a solar-deity dating service. Otherwise, trained tan technicians spritz bodies in curve-customized tans from an airbrush-tanning wand, aiming to create natural-looking highlights and a whole-body bronze with Norvell products.
Bath Junkie's soap-and-suds alchemists hand the creative reigns over to their guests, who can customize the color and aroma of their own personalized bath-time potions. Visitors survey 200 fragrances ranging from straightforward citrus scents to convincing Chanel #5 doppelgangers before self-tailoring an array of bath products. Those overwhelmed by the number of choices can borrow inspiration from a menu of favorite blends, or go sans scent to avoid luring pie thieves to bathroom windows. Bath Junkie's paraben-free exfoliating salt scrub helps slough off expired cells and moisturizes skin, whereas their organic shea-butter body cream hydrates epidermal expanses with natural ingredients such as Vitamin E. Silver Screen bubble-bath solution, Olive-Me body oil, and Aloe-lu-yah lotion funnel easily into 6-ounce bottles and can be infused with peach and willow colors to match bathroom décor. In addition to offsetting 100% of its stores’ electricity carbon emissions with renewable-energy credits, Bath Junkie also tracks customers’ eco-karma with a card that rewards random acts of greenness and doubles as a get-out-of-destiny-free card. An additional UPS shipping fee applies to all orders processed by phone.
More than a decade ago, Dawn M. Sears, LME, opened medical skincare and aesthetic laser center Skinsation, where a licensed physician oversees nonsurgical beauty procedures. In the hands of technicians, GentleMax and Vbeam Candela laser systems remove pesky stubble and unflattering vascular lesions. Alternatively, permanent makeup can simplify morning routines, rendering beauty basics such as eyeliner, lip liner, eyebrow filler, and war paint obsolete by imbuing the skin’s dermal layer with natural pigments. Five injectables, such as Botox and Restylane, smooth client’s brows with minimal downtime, and trained technicians coat physiques in sunless Airtan liquid, whose bronzing effects last 7–10 days. Clients can refer to the website for a complete list of services.
Southern Roots Salon's owner Jennifer Greene and her team of stylists craft custom looks for men and women among vintage-inspired dressers, chandeliers, and ornate mirrors. Patrons can sip a selection of wine, beer, and coffee while mane tamers snip away split ends with a women's shampoo and cut ($25) or men's cut ($18), creating time-tested 'dos or experimental busts of Babe Ruth. Hue imparters utilize Schwarzkopf Professional color for all pigmenting services including partial highlights ($75 with style) and full color ($59+ with style), whereas feather extensions ($15 each for the first three feathers) easily add bright accents to follicular foliage. Faces feeling ho-hum can touch up with an eyebrow wax ($12) that clears the surface for a makeup application ($30) at the Motives make-up bar. Meanwhile, a minimum of four friends can pamper socially with a Girl's Day Out ($75 / person), synchronizing sips of champagne and bites of finger food before a shampoo, cut, hot-towel treatment, and make-up application leaves their exteriors as sleek as a buttered-up racecar. On their way out, patrons can take 15% off products, including styling formulas from Redken.
