As one of the oldest cosmetology schools in the area, the Salon Schools Group has been churning out highly trained manicure mavens, visage revolutionaries, and overall bodily beautifiers for nearly eight decades. Drop by any location and let one of the up-and-coming cosmetologists stage a performance of their freshly honed skills under the supervision of an expert instructor before they matriculate to some of the finest salons in the area. Services, which vary by school location, include a cranberry bog facial from Westerville's spa menu, which cleanses and heals the skin with antioxidants and essential oils and, like any fruitful spelunking expedition, concludes with a shampoo and blow dry ($32.50). Heath's salon menu offers deluxe haircuts with a blow dry and curling-iron style ($9–$11) and cap highlights ($29–$30). Liberate upper lips and eyebrows from the tyranny of excess fuzz with a wax from Canal Winchester's spa offerings ($7 each), or sharpen your claws with the full set of sculptured nails offered on Karl Road's salon menu ($20). There are a slew of equally indulgent treatments at all seven locations. Go in for a marathon glam session before the office prom, or spread out services over multiple visits.
