Plush, black chairs line the walls at Greatest Nails & Spa, cushioning clients as licensed manicurists and aestheticians pamper them from head to toe.

The salon also facilitates group pampering with gatherings targeted toward bachelorette and bridal parties, as well as kid-centric soirees for girls aged 12 and younger.

Diamond Nails Salon & Spa beautifies exteriors with quality products from brands such as OPI and Dermalogica. The spa pays particular attention to the fingers and toes with eight types of manicures and pedicures, including the bella manicure, which incorporates both a cucumber scrub and paraffin treatment, and the deluxe pedicure, which reduces the appearance of blemishes with an intensive callus treatment.
Salon de Jeunesse provides a bevy of beautifying services to smooth the skin's surface. A 45–60 minute microdermabrasion-, glycolic-, and collagen-combination treatment triple teams ornery skin and buffs away fine lines, wrinkles, and discolorations, creating optimal playing conditions for microscopic games of curling. The trifecta of skinsavers encourages faces to churn out more of their natural hyaluronic acids and collagens, making them so incandescent they can be used to search for missing mustards in lightless refrigerators.
The nail techs at Emerald Day Spa use organic products as they beautify hands and feet with mani-pedis. During the 60-minute service, an aesthetician gently massages and scrubs pavement pounders with a nutrient-rich Himalayan salt scrub, exfoliating soles and heels as fingers soak in a dip and share secrets about who they like-like. Nails then undergo a trim, buff, and cuticle treatment before being slathered in a green tea detox to expunge impurities.
