New Beginnings Salon & Spa pampers guests from scalp to toe-tip with an indulgent menu of beautification services. After a swift waxing session, guests may retreat to a private room for a restorative facial or therapeutic bodywork. New Beginnings also renovates strands with custom cuts and bold color treatments. Though the stylists specialize in ethnic hair, their expertise spans all types, regardless of color, texture, or astrological sign.
Kindal Farwick can transform dull hairdos into fashion-forward styles with nothing more than a pair of shears. While that trick is impressive enough on its own, she also takes things a step further, enhancing shine with highlights or all-over color treatments for both men and women. Yet, despite her talent and love for everyday salon work, Kindal’s real passion lies in specialty hair and makeup design. Whether she’s designing for weddings, runway shoots, or other special events, she can custom-create just about any look, whether it’s a polished up-do or bouncy curls arranged so strands fall in just the right place. She completes hair masterpieces with brow waxes and flawless airbrush-makeup applications. Clients who fall in love with their dolled-up eyes and lips can come back later for a makeup lesson, picking Kindal’s brain for tips on re-creating the look.
Epiphany: an illuminating discovery, realization, or disclosure. Every day is an epiphany for owner Karla Headley, who wakes to find that her salon dream is a reality. Her space is modern and chic, with elegant wall sconces casting a buttery glow on vertically striped gray walls. At individual styling stations, Karla’s skilled hairdressers shape styles with scissor and color tresses with Pureology and Redken products. The services are diverse, ranging from signature Brazilian-blowout treatments to private waxing sessions for upper lips, eyebrows, and earlobes. Epiphany stylists also braid love into the community with their Uplifting Spirits Project, offering free haircuts to organizations in need.
At Thrive Salon, Paul Mitchell products are the only commonality between the customized appointments.

A shampoo and style comes standard with haircuts at Exquisite Design Salon and Spa—just the stylists’ way of ensuring that clients leave looking their best. To that end, stylists pile on luxurious extras such as shots of Redken conditioner and hair extensions that give instant length or bangs. The pampering continues in the spa area, where mani-pedis can pretty up hands and feet with exfoliating scrubs to slough off dead skin cells and lavender wax to seal in moisture.
