‘Tis the season to celebrate, shop, decorate and get frazzled.

Fortunately, there are many places in town to help locals get ready for a special occasion, take some time out to relax and recharge their batteries, or pick up something special like gift certificates for people who might not otherwise splurge on themselves.  

Rejuvenate Day Spa, at 3431 Taylor Road, is an organic, green spa that does massages, facials, body wraps, sauna, aqua detox and nutritional consultations. They also sell nutritional supplements, their own organic skin care line, Rhonda Allison products and other organic products including mineral make up and deodorant. The boutique carries jewelry, purses, scarves, hats and natural beauty supplies.

“Our instant online gift certificates are really nice for people who just can’t get in during business hours,” said owner Kaera Anzalone.

Shangra-La Salon, in the same building, offers hair services for men and women, including cuts, coloring and highlights, using organic hair color.

Minx Salon and Spa, at 6060 Horseshoe Bar Road, offers many services. Hair services include styling for special occasions, cuts, color, highlights, perms, keratin smoothing and hair extensions. The nail salon offers manicures, pedicures and gel and acrylic nails. Their spa features many different massages, facials, body polish, wraps and waxing. They also offer raindrop therapy, reiki, gemstone healing and spray tanning.

Loomis Spa and Boutique, at 3755 Taylor Road, features facials, waxing, massage, body wraps and treatments, candling, spray tans and lash extensions. Their boutique features jewelry, scarves, hats, shoes, personal products and other gift items.

In addition to carrying more than 15 different shampoo and conditioner lines, M&D Beauty Supply and Salon, at 3715 Taylor Road, also sells nail care products, makeup and lotions. They have six hair stylists who provide everything from old fashioned cuts and perms to swanky color and highlights, said owner Kathy Lee.

“A lot of people don’t know that we have gifts, and they can buy purses, jewelry and gift ware here. Sometimes people just come in for a cup of coffee; we’ve been called Steel Magnolias,” she said.

Loomis Basin Barber and Beauty, located next to Pizza Factory on Horseshoe Bar Road, is a family-friendly, affordable barbershop that specializes in men’s, women’s and children’s hair cuts. Services range from simple bang cuts to “the works,” which includes shampoo, cut and blow-dry. Special rates for children and seniors are offered and the shop has train set, toys and videos to entertain kids while their parents are in the chair.

“We’re the only shop in town open on Sundays and Mondays. That makes it nice for people who are busy working during the week and doing other things on Saturdays,” said owner Vicki Lynn Damians.

Roni Lee’s Skin and Hair Studio, formerly The Skin Studio, at 6215 S. Walnut, specializes in chemical peels and microdermabrasion and offers many other services, including hair cuts and coloring, head-to-toe waxing and facials. Gift certificates will be available until Dec. 15.

Adore Your Skin and Body Salon, located with BridgeYoga at 3587 Taylor Road, specializes in permanent makeup and eyelash extensions as well as facials, body wraps and treatments, ear candling and waxing.

Hair For You, located at 3805 Taylor Road, offers cuts, perms, colors and weaves. Their jewelry, purses and hair care make nice gifts.

Loomis Beauty Salon, at 3675 Taylor Road, specializes in color corrections, cuts for men and women, shampoo-sets, blow-dries, perms, coloring and highlights. Walk-ins are welcome.
