Since the early 1900s, the folks of Flat Rock have made their way into Strands of Hair for an expert haircut or beard trim. Over the years, a change of hands brought new services to the menu, which now boasts six coloring treatments that range from partial highlights to a custom-dyed bald cap. Stylists also wax off unwanted hair on upper lips, chins, and outer ears.
GP Cole Salon is exclusive in only one sense. The full-service salon stocks only professional products from Redken and Pureology, which ensures that every treatment turns out exactly as the stylist or aesthetician envisioned it. In every other sense, however, GP Cole is as inviting as a salon can be. Multiple styling chairs and nail stations cut down on wait times, though the warm atmosphere and lively chatter may make you want to linger after a haircut, manicure, or waxing treatment. Thankfully, the staff never rushes clients out the door. They'll invite you to sink into a leather chair for a pedicure, or get comfy in a private room before a bikini wax.
At Flat Rock Aesthetics, board-certified physicians Dr. David Patterson and Dr. Jennifer Fetz oversee teams of experienced laser technicians who fix up skins with high-tech treatments. Noninvasive light therapy can kick-start the skin's natural collagen production, obscure hyperpigmentation, and obliterate scar tissue, while CoolGlide lasers evict unwanted hair with little to no heat, discomfort, or legal intervention. The savvy techs can also shut-down facial and spider veins with noninvasive procedures that are safe for all skin types.
Martoni’s Salon cultivates hand and foot beauty and health with a 75-minute mani-pedi. Between the gold- and merlot-hued salon walls, a professional cuticle guru evaluates fingers, toes, and surveillance footage of nail biting to determine the client’s treatment needs. In a flurry of whittling fervor, the technician’s skilled fingers painstakingly trim and shape talons to their ideal symmetry. With all 20 nails proudly shining in salon light, the client’s choice of color polish bolsters style street cred without imparting the coercive vibe associated with bedazzled brass knuckles.
