On the back deck of The Vineyard Salon, a set of french doors invites guests meander in and out while their color treatments process. It's here where clients can unwind while admiring tangles of foliage in the adjacent vineyard or while listening to the soft gurgle of nearby creek. Beyond the entry of this peaceful haven, The Vineyard Salon's team of certified cosmetologists, aestheticians, and manicurists pamper clients with an indulgent barrage of beauty treatments. There's even an essential oils specialist on staff who, using only organic products, employs the soothing oils during scalp massages that are at once uplifting and relaxing. That emphasis on comfort is the theme at this full-service salon and spa, whether clients stop by for haircuts and color treatments, facials, or Swedish massages. The services here go beyond the standard, too—the beauty experts also offer permanent makeup applications and teeth whitening to clean up traces left from coffee, wine, and chewing nervously on paintballs.
Selah Day Spa and Salon derives its name from a Hebrew word that translates to pause. It's an apt motto for the venue—"pauses" here can last up to 4.5 hours, or the length of the Pure Bliss package, which includes a massage, a European facial, a mani-pedi, and a session inside the infrared sauna.
Even though the package covers a wide array of treatments, it still leaves out many of the spa's offerings. Skincare services incorporate products from Pevonia and Bioelements to stave off signs of aging, and permanent makeup and eyelash extensions accentuate facial features. Additionally, waxing and spray tans prepare clients to hit the beach with confidence, even if they don't have pet shark to do their bidding.
Inside the salon portion, stylists trim and color hair or arrange it into wedding-ready updos. They also attempt to elongate and strengthen strands with laser hair therapy. Meanwhile, nail technicians, such as Han Nguyen, paint fingers and toes with vibrant butter London polishes, which are formaldehyde-free and a staple at Fashion Weeks around the world.

La Belle Nails is all about the art of meticulously manicured fingers and toes. This newly opened nail salon in Lincoln features plenty of luxury leather massage pedicure spa chairs and a busy nail station area, allowing the licensed nail technicians on staff to spend time lavishing attention on clients' cuticles without a huge wait time. Their gel manicures won't chip or break for up to two weeks, while their spa pedicures feature a relaxing scrub. The team can also add fashion to digits by drawing nail art such as intricate flowers with the salon's OPI nail lacquers—thought they don't recommend surprise-painting these flowers on a girlfriend's fingers to make up for a fight.
After a day spent walking around Westfield Galleria, Galleria Nails can look particularly enticing. Inside, owner Tiffany Tran and her team of licensed nail technicians pamper with massages, paraffin wax wraps, sugar scrubs, and mani-pedis. But they can do more than just groom hands and feet, they can transform them with coats of Shellac polish, 3D nail art, or hand-painted flowers that double as camouflage provided you're holding a bouquet.
With its long pedicure benches and open floor space, Polished Nail Bar fits the breezy feel of a city park inside a nail salon. Even the names of its services recall a crisp breath of air: a Refresh mani-pedi includes a scrub, mask, and massage in addition to polish, and the Renew mani-pedi adds paraffin wax and a callus treatment to the package. The highly trained technicians pull from more than 70 OPI and CND colors to decorate nails, whether they're supervising the pedicure sinks or the marble counter of the manicure bar.
In addition to its nail-therapy space, the salon furnishes a private skincare room. Here, warm steam heralds targeted facials that address acne, dryness, and signs of aging. The Roseville location's menu includes facial peels such as a Power Pumpkin Resurfacer, which combats blemishes and wrinkles with enzymes and a jack-o'-lantern to wear on your head. The aestheticians also wax away unwanted body hair and lengthen eyelashes with extensions.
In a way, Aubree Jackson's education just began when she finished school. Although she received her aesthetician's license a decade ago, Aubree has plowed through a multitude of continuing-education courses, picking up enough certificates to merit a fifth office wall. She’s honed her skills in skin nutrition, jessner peels, Dermalogica skincare, diamond-peel microdermabrasions, and even thai massage.
Inside Love Your Skin Day Spa, these diverse practices culminate into a sweeping service menu of facials, body wraps, and cosmetic treatments. Hot oil and hand treatments complement the ultimate european facial—a relaxing treatment that brings out healthy skin color—whereas the hydra-derma facial combines a deep-cleansing facial, diamond peel, photorejuvenation facial, and neck and shoulder massage into a skin-spoiling treatment that could soften the face of the Lincoln Memorial. Love Your Skin Day Spa also offers body polishes, nourishing mud wraps, and permanent makeup services.
