If you rifle through The Hair Revue’s Facebook photos, it won’t take very long before you stumble upon a picture of a smiling boy or girl in one of the salon chairs. The staff’s special knack for working with little ones reflect the family-friendly nature of the business, who welcomes everyone from babies to grandmothers.
For grownups, the stylists snip and color hair, as well as create intricate 'dos for special occasions such as weddings. Elsewhere in the salon, aestheticians such as Crystal Seiler trim nails and paint them with standard polish or chip-resistant Shellac.
Nixa Hair Studio stylists comb Redken, Paul Mitchell, and Joico products through clients’ hair both before and after they sheer off split ends and sculpt new looks. Wielding years of experience—some more than a quarter of a century—the team helps clients achieve chic and traditional looks fit for special occasions and casual everyday wearing. Their broad range of services, such as cuts, color, and conditioning, spill from ladies’ heads onto male customers’ faces in the form of beard and moustache trims.
Within the health-minded confines of VIP Medical Services, aestheticians inspire outer beauty with a bevy of advanced therapies. A diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand intensively exfoliates the skin to wipe away signs of aging, while a 24-karat gold mask stimulates collagen production and brightens the skin. Clients can also shed some stress during a full-body massage, and men can freshen their complexions during the specially tailored Gentelman's Facial.

Being able to give my clients a break from their busy lives so they can rejuvenate their skin and mind.

Ty Barnes opened Blow Salon with two goals in mind: to showcase his hairstyling mastery, and to promote his own Blow product line. Between products from Blow and Davines, a line imported from Italy, Ty and his fellow stylists have everything from alcohol-free mousse to frizz-combating herbal polishes at their disposal. With these, the Blow team completes services such as basic cuts and foil highlights, as well as fancy updos for brides or women attending their office’s wear-your-wedding-dress-to-work day. The crew’s talents also extend beyond hair to facial treatments, such as waxing or eyebrow arching. Amid the exposed bricks and shiny hardwoods, clients awaiting their appointment can kick back with a beer or Starbucks coffee while enjoying the free Wi-Fi.
