Full Service Salons & Spas

Spas typically offer a full range of aesthetic services including hair (cut, color, style), nails (manicure, pedicure, acrylics), waxing (eyebrow, bikini, Brazilian), massage and skin treatments. Please check each businesses page for a complete listing of services provided.

Stylists

Stylists tend to move around a bit during their careers, so below is a list of individual stylists, and (hopefully) the salon in which they are currently working.

Tanning Salons

Tanning salons provide beds that emit UV rays affecting skin pigment. Some salons offer UV-free options that darken the skin without exposure to light. Tanning salons also provide an array of lotions, moisturizers and other skincare products. Davis doesn't support many tanning salons, possibly for [WWW]melanoma concerns, but those determined few have options.

A new law was passed that bans UV tanning by machines for anyone under age 18. Spray tans are still legal.


Nail Salons

Nail salons provide manicures for the hands, pedicures for the feet, and often do some waxing as well. Typically you get your best value with a combination manicure/pedicure service. Please check our listing of full service salons and spas for more places to get your nails done.


Barber Shops

Barber shops typically offer a range of male-oriented aesthetic services, including haircuts and shaves. Please check individual pages for details on services provided.

2012-01-14 14:14:16   A female friend of mine has asked me to post the following: "I am looking for a place where I can just get a nice haircut each time without much fuss. I don't want to color my hair. I don't want to perm my hair. I'm also not going to be blow-drying or styling my hair. I have very fine hair and I want to limit the stress that I put on it. I realize that this limits the styles that are available to me, but I still want to get a good cut. Sometimes what happens to me is that I get a few good cuts, but then the stylist seems to get bored because I am not buying expensive products or expensive treatments or doing anything fancy. I end up with my hair too short or not cut carefully. I just want to get a good haircut each time, and yes, I always tip nicely. Any recommendations for me?" —CovertProfessor


2012-06-04 08:50:23   Does anyone know if any of these places will do a full Henna dye on long hair? —SharonRuth
