I've been going to Mel for several years now for my hair. I change my hair pretty drastically and very often and I've now gotten to the point with Mel where I'll give her a general idea of what I'm looking for (leave it long or cut it off) and let her do the rest. She's great at anticipating what I may or may not like, remembering the colors that worked well on me and can do wonders with my very tricky hair. My hair is fine, but I have a ton of it and it's straight but has a random wave at my neck that very few stylists haven't managed to completely screw up. I love my hair every time I leave there and get a lot of compliments on it. She's even somehow managed to keep my hair in great shape regardless of how many drastic changes I decide to make with the color! I happily recommend Mel to friends and have never heard anyone disappointed with her service. I even got my boyfriend to go to her and she did a great job on his hair as well! Since Kieu has come on board I decided to try getting a manicure with her. I have previously gone to another local salon for their shellack treatment, but wanted to give Kieu and the Gellish treatment a try. I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO SHELLACK! Gone are the days of sitting at the bar at the nail place drinking wine through a straw because my hands had to sit under the UV lamps for another 10 minutes before they were dry. I always get a french manicure and I got really sick of the shellack either chipping or cracking and I haven't experienced that with the Gellish at all. My nails have gone 3 weeks looking perfect with the exception of the growth. Kieu takes her time and does a wonderful job with the manicure. The environment in the salon is homey and relaxing. They offer water, coffee, wine, beer and a great selection of magazines to browse through. So far, I've loved the products that Mel has used on me. The shampoo chairs are so much more comfortable than ones I've been in previously and Mel's scalp massages are to die for! Overall its a great location and I can't wait to see what other services they will have to offer!
I recently got my first spray tan at Vanity Glo salon and loved it!!! I was to be in a wedding in two days and had lost most of my summer tan and needed more color. The bride and all of the bridesmaids went to the salon and all were sprayed. Zoe sprayed me with the color that best matched my skin and hair color. I wanted a natural tan and that’s exactly what I got. My spray tan turned out even and matched perfect. I made the decision to never use tanning beds last year when my sister discovered she had skin cancer at the age of 22. I love to be tan year round and was always scared to be sprayed but now I am able to be tan year round with Vanity Glo Salon. Zoe has a client for life with me. Thanks for making me GLO!!! Hannah made me look beautiful for my friend’s wedding. She did my makeup perfect!!! I asked for a natural look and her suggestion for eyes. Hannah made my eyes look great and the colors she used made my blue eyes shine ; ) She also gave me great skin care advise that I have been trying for about two weeks now and has helped with some redness on my cheeks. Thanks Hannah!!!!! Tatum was my hair stylist for the wedding I was in and I loved my look. I was first in the hair chair at 9 A.M. I wanted curls with half of my hair pulled up. I got exactly what I asked for. My curls stayed in full from 9 A.M. until the next morning. Thanks Tatum!!!!

I was hosting a party & needed some coloring so I thought Id give it a try & they were sweet enough to squeeze me on short notice; gotta love that! 1st let me say I loved the spa; its cute & got a shabby chic feel to it. I was greeted by 2 smiling girls named Tatum & Catherine. Tatum went over the procedure & what to do & what to NOT do (I was fearful of looking like Chester the cheetah;) She was super nice & I she made me feel completly comfortable & by the time I knew it ...
