A cream-colored spa accented by green sprouts, marble, and stone sets the stage for relaxation at Aqua Lifestyle Nail Salon & Spa, where skilled aestheticians bolster beauty with services for the skin, hair, and nails. Wrinkles and furrows fade into oblivion as the staff tightens skin with Lumière LED facials and turns back the clock on sun damage with the lightening peel’s cocktail of lactic acid and brightening serums. Kneeling at the foot of 1 of 17 plush pedicure chairs, a technician culls overgrowing nails, curbs wayward cuticles, and ousts spent skin with a sea-salt scrub, promoting relaxation and the joyful urge to commute via kickline. Among the salon’s other services, airbrush tanning bronzes bodies without UV exposure and gentle head-to-toe waxing treatments strip away hair with warm wax.
Stylist Shellie David—understudy of haircare icons Vidal Sassoon and Paul Mitchell—acquired her styling and coloring skills from the industry's best. For more than two decades, Shellie has honed her techniques and trained her scissors to manifest the ideal cut and color for each client's facial tone and shape. Passionate about her craft, she seeks ongoing education whenever possible, and has earned certifications in color services, Brazilian blowouts, and Chi Enviro smoothing.
Stylist Chayenne Mallari approaches transforming her clients' hair as an art form, adding pops of vibrant color into locks with feather hair extensions or layers of dimension with highlights. It's been more than 10 years since she transformed her first head of hair, but she is dedicated to staying abreast of the industry's latest trends with continued training and certifications, and she creates her own techniques. Her services cover all manner of haircare techniques, ranging from cuts to coloring to extensions to Brazilian blowouts. She also preps brides for their big days with elaborate updos and makeup applications that will flawlessly cover up stubborn face paint that lingers from first-grade birthday parties.
Shellie David has been sculpting hairdos for nearly 20 years, and she still loves every minute of it. Though she appreciates the technical side of things, her real passion for styling comes from the feeling she gets from making her clients feel pampered and beautiful. To that end, she constantly trains with Vidal Sassoon, Redken, and Goldwell in order to make sure that she's always treating her clients to the best and latest products. Shellie is proud of her uncommonly personal approach—she won't let you leave until you're satisfied that your haircut flatters the shape of your face. She can even show you how to create a salon-worthy look at home without having to straighten your hair in the toaster.

She stays up to date in these areas by immersing herself in advanced training courses. Using this expertise, she caters to each client’s personal style, whether by straightening manes for a formal event or matching hair color to the hue of the goldfish that saved the client's life.
