The goals of Chez Raina Salon's experienced staff are to build strong relationships with clients and provide them with exceptional beauty services. Inside the highly sanitized salon space, nail technicians doll up digits with mani-pedis and paraffin treatments. Stylists consult with their clients before cutting and highlighting manes to create whole new hairdos. The staff's aestheticians use waxing services and facials to soften the skin until it's smoother than Boyz II Men lounging in a pool of baby oil.
Backed by 29 years of beautifying tradition, Pour L'image combines exhaustive product knowledge with an astute eye and passion for polishing skin. The spa's full-service epidermal renovation, which spans 75–90 minutes, can be adapted for all skin types thanks to a comprehensive analysis of problematic areas. After an impurity-purging cleanse and refreshing hydration treatment, aestheticians cater to each visage's unique demands with microdermabrasion or a chemical peel. A light massage then tends to stressed facial muscles, knotted necks, and stress-soaked shoulders, with the epidermal detailers capping off the indulgent stay by upping hydration levels around the eyes and décolleté area.
The intricately painted manicures created at Butterfly Nail Salon are about as unique as the colorings on a butterfly's wings. At one table, a technician might be painting acrylics with a modernity-inspired coat of white polish, while the next table might find a client gasping with delight over the cupcake-themed manicure on her natural nails. Pink-and-whites are popular here, as are no-chip gel polishes that, like robot butlers, are available in both traditional and neon hues.
When the going gets tough, the tough get manicures. At least, that’s the view espoused by Pink Nails Day Spa, which strives to offer its clients rejuvenation through a variety of head-to-toe pampering services. As its name suggests, the spa specializes in nailcare, from classic manicures and pedicures to eye-catching airbrush designs. Table or chair massages work to disentangle muscular knots and banish tension, and facials address complexion concerns such as acne, sun damage, or irritated skin. Waxing treatments can put the final smoothing touch on bodies, clearing away unwanted hair and unsightly porcupine quills.
