As a busy mom, it can be hard to fit self-care into my monthly routine. Nonetheless, I have found that I am a happier mom and a better wife, if I take this time to pamper myself.
One of the great things about Hendricks County is that we have a variety of salons and medspas to cater to all needs. Within the last five years, we added a top plastic surgeon’s office to the mix.
Many of the salons offer so much more than hair services by including facial treatments, massages, lash and brow care, manicures and pedicures. The medspas and plastic surgeon’s office help you look and feel your best with Botox, filler, customized facials, reconstructive surgery and more.
While the list below is by no means an exhaustive list, I asked around and checked Yelp for some of the best salons and spas our county has to offer.
If you’re looking for just an hour of being pampered, need a quick pedicure, want to spoil a loved one or you’re already making your Christmas list (hello, gift cards!), this list is a great place to help you start adding some self-care into your schedule!
Cass & Company Salon, Avon
I first went to Cass & Co., located at 7374 Business Center Drive, right after high school because my best friend was a stylist there. Since day one, this place has been warm and skilled at not only nailing my style but helping me understand how to style my own hair.
I’ve always been offered refreshments while I’m waiting, and I always look forward to their scalp massage during my shampoo. Stylists there regularly have opportunities for advanced education on the latest styles and techniques.
They have grown over the years to add many more services than just hair. In addition to cuts, styles and color (as well as children’s and barber’s cuts!), Cass & Company offers texture treatments and Aveda treatments (including lash lifts, dermaplaning and facials). You can also get extensions, face and body waxing and tinting, makeup services, a wide range of massages (including prenatal) and some additional menu extras, such as hot stone treatment, exfoliating scrubs or deep tissue upgrade.
You really can relax here in so many ways.
em Studio Salon, Brownsburg
Located on North Green Street in the same strip mall as Boulder Creek Dining Company, em Studio Salon is bright and spacious with tons of natural light. The experience and environment are just as important here as quality services, and it shows.
The menu is extensive but simple, covering haircuts/colors/styles, makeup applications, simple hand or scalp massages, eyelash services and texturizing and extension services. You can even schedule a consultation if you’d like to see what services would be best for you.
The best part is they have a small boutique in their salon!
That way, when you are about to leave feeling so fresh and new with your revamped hair, you can add a few pieces to your closet (or your house) to complement your new look.
Updo Down Salon, Danville

Pure Concepts Salon, Plainfield
The Plainfield location of Pure Concepts Salon (there’s also one in Carmel) is on U.S. 40 just east of Gilley’s Antique Decorator Mall.
