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.
The skilled technicians at Pour L’Image beautify clients with nailcare, waxing, and brow and lash tinting. They specialize in waterless spa pedicures, in which guests relax on comfortable pedicure cots with feet enveloped in warm booties, a nice change from the typical whirlpool soaks or shark-tank dips. Additionally, they use vegetable-based dyes to darken brows and lashes for up to six weeks.
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.
The beauty professionals at Salon Bella transform appearances with a range of services that can provide newly colored roots to perfectly polished toes. Stylists provide haircuts, smoothing treatments, and foil highlights. Meanwhile, nail technicians add length with acrylic nails or keep designs chip free for up to two weeks with shellac polish. They also keep skin glowing with airbrushed makeup, sunless tanning, and by attaching glowsticks to the body.
