Welcome to Shear Dynamics Salon & Spa Above the Plaza

We are a full-service L'anza Healing Center Salon and  Spa located in the heart of Aggieville in historic Manhattan, Kansas.  We’ve been making clients into friends for 31 years.  Our two levels provide an up tempo salon atmosphere downstairs with rooms for waxing and spray tanning, but also a serene spa environment upstairs complete with hair and nail services. Our goal is your complete satisfaction and relaxation.

At Shear Dynamics, we are dedicated to all aspects of beauty and style, from the latest trends in hair design to the most effective skin treatments and beauty products.  We are here to give clients the ultimate experience in pampering from head to toe.  Our goal is not only to create a beautiful appearance outside, but to nurture the inner spirit and relax the mind and body.

Whether you are looking to chat with a friend while you get your hair done or relax in peace and quiet for a massage or nail service, Shear Dynamics Salon & Spa Above the Plaza is the place to go.

Beauty is just the beginning and serenity is the reward.
