Brightly colored fingernails are one of the first things you notice about someone, especially if they're walking on their hands. Skilled technician Jessica Alborn ensures nail beauty with deft shaping, vibrant polishes, and myriad varieties of acrylics. Not restricting her talents to talons, clients may also solicit Alborn for a swift wax or a flattering haircut and color treatment.
For some salons, highlights and lowlights are as modern as the styling services get. Medusa’s is not one of those salons. Its stylists can cut and fashion the perfect mohawk, and when your hair is dyed green, it’s not an accident. An onsite artist puts the capper on new looks with henna tattoos. Highlighting its alternative ambiance, each month Medusa’s chooses a local up-and-coming band to receive a complete rock-‘n’-roll makeover. On the first Wednesday of every month, the salon turns off the music and blow-dryers to accommodate its clients with sensory issues.
Sheer curtains cascade down the windows and vintage pictures tucked inside gilded frames, evoking a homey atmosphere inside Salon Milano Nails. Faux marbled tables serve as manicure stations, where technicians cover nails with Shellac and Gelish polishes that protect against chips and scratches. Alternatively, acrylic nails cover unsightly or extra-shy digits.
