Seeking to fulfill the needs of current and potential clients, Head Shed, 716 W. Market St., recently expanded the services available at the salon.
Chris Nominee, co-owner of Head Shed, said customers now can visit the salon for detox treatments, relaxing massages and artificial nails, which are new additions to the business' array of services.
She said the detox process, which is done in a private room at the salon, involves soaking one's feet in water in a detox machine, which ultimately "pulls out toxins in the body." The water in the machine, Nominee said, turns color to reflect where individual toxins have originated, and can suggest whether a client's toxins were from the liver or another area of the body.
One client, who suffers from arthritis, Nominee said, went through the detox process at Head Shed and reported an improvement in her symptoms. A client who had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia had a similar experience, she said.
"All the feedback has been positive," she said.
Now, the salon is offering detox for an introductory cost of $15. The process takes 30-40 minutes, she said.
In response to requests from clients, Nominee said artificial nails now are available at the Head Shed.
"People were calling in asking if we had them," she said, and additions to the staff at the salon has meant the introduction of Essie gel nails.
Essie nails, she said, are cured by an LED light and grow out with the natural nail. The nails, Nominee said, last up to two weeks.
The cost for nail services varies, she said.
Massages also can be scheduled at Head Shed and are done by staff members certified in relaxing massage. A one-hour massage costs $30, Nominee said. Hot-stone massages also are available for $35 per hour, she said.
Nominee said she hopes the salon's expanded services will "bring in more customers."
The salon is open Monday through Saturday, and hours vary. Nominee said the staff at Head Shed includes Nominee, co-owner Margie Hodges, Elaine Staib, Judy Homan, Sue Schriner, Jennifer Pahl, Serena Constantini, Debbie Pinkston, Ally Scherger, Emilena Daniel and Danielle Lange.

Nominee said Head Shed will be participating in upcoming events, including cutting hair for Locks of Love and Wigs for Kids, and Relay For Life fundraisers.
She said the salon's bake sale to benefit Relay For Life is Thursday-Saturday. Baked goods are to be available during the salon's open hours and the Easter Bunny will visit 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m.-noon Saturday. Donations will be accepted, Nominee said.
