1401 Hair Designs & Massage Therapy owner Joyce Bell knows that glamour can't be measured with a ruler. The short-hair specialist has been creating easy, manageable styles for manes of all lengths for more than 30 years, with services that can include everything from 1950s-inspired roller sets to chic, modern blowouts inspired by the future. Her staff members pull products from brands such as Joico, Roux, and Goldwell as they create dimension with custom color and highlights, and they can also use their skills to style wigs and hairpieces for cancer patients and other hair-loss sufferers.On the spa side of the service menu, licensed massage therapists help to promote relaxation and increased energy using craniosacral, reflexology, and Japanese hot-stone therapies. Onsite certified herbalist Kelly Bell is also on hand to help clients to detox or to stabilize their body weight by crafting custom nutrition plans that rely on all-natural vitamins and organic herbs instead of starvation diets or strongly worded letters to the liver.
The staff members at Silk the Salon don't consider themselves stylists; they consider themselves artists.

Effective hair- and skincare requires two things: talented, well-trained beauty professionals and quality products. Elayne James Salon and Spa, named in Salon Today's list for 200 of the country’s fastest growing salons, thrives with a staff of Redken- and Wella-trained hairstylists who wield French-made herbal formulas from Privé as they cut, color, and style strands. They also lengthen short ‘dos with Italian SoCap hair extensions, block frizz with a keratin smoothing system, and scare strands straight with barks from a drill sergeant. The salon’s aestheticians use preservative-free A Natural Difference skincare products to cleanse and exfoliate skin during facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and red-light-therapy sessions. Beyond hair and skin, Elayne James’s service menu includes indulgent Swedish and deep-tissue massages, mani-pedis, and waxing.

Spa services such as massages and facials melt away stress while keeping skin supple with essential oils and moisturizing emollients. The studio's focus on luxury extends beyond specific services, with complimentary chair massages during every visit, free hairdo touchups between scheduled visits, and an onsite putting green to practice shots while waiting for appointments.
