Highlighted by a black-and-white color scheme, high ceilings, and exposed ductwork, Erika Taylor Urban Spa’s industrial aesthetic stands in contrast to its botanically based spa treatments. And though the skincare and massage services involve plant-based emollients, they also leverage cutting-edge techniques and technologies. For instance, HydraFacials resurface skin and deliver an intense dose of moisture via an instrument that loosens and lifts away dull skin cells by creating a vortex. Hair and nail treatments round out the service menu, helping clients become beautiful from head to dewclaw.
The technicians at Simply Elegant Nails draw on specialized training to care for natural and artificial nails with relaxing mani-pedis. Women and men flock to the salon for the spa-like treatments, each of which begins with a soothing soak in warm water. Exfoliating scrubs, warm-towel wraps, and hand-and-foot massages follow, complementing standard services such as shaping and grooming. When they aren’t pushing back cuticles or brushing vibrant polish across nails, the salon’s technicians study up on new trends in the nail industry. Their continuing education helps them recommend nail products and polishes to match any skin tone or scaly, reptilian coat.
Posh! Nail Studio's team believes spa treatments should accentuate natural beauty and embrace natural techniques. As a result, the nail gurus exclusively seek out nontoxic products, lining their shelves with organic skincare balms that feature everything from moisturizing botanical extracts to pure almond oil. Harsh chemical agents have no place in this environment, and the staff members even refuse to use acetone when removing polish because of the unnatural drying effects. To further demonstrate their commitment to eco-friendly practices, the technicians perform waterless manicures and shake hands with every squirrel they see.
At Refuge at the Mill, Leah Parker and her staff?which includes five nail artists, three hair stylists, a massage therapist, and an aesthetician?cater to cosmetic needs and alleviate stress in a relaxing environment. Team members, many of whom tout more than a decade in the industry, meticulously sculpt nail tips and create hand-painted nail art accented with glitter and 3-D enhancements. Stylists foster new 'dos with haircuts and color, highlight, and curling services. Clients can also unwind with hot stone, pregnancy, or sports massages.
Lucy Noelle Beauty Shop and Day Spa's fun-loving staff brightens appearances with a strong arsenal of standard salon services and a few fun treatments, such as specialty tooth art and colorful eyelash extensions. For those seeking a straightforward cut, stylists brandish scissors when snipping the locks of men, women, and children while techs file away at fingers during manicures and pedicures. Rather than rubbing their teeth with chalk, clients can come to Lucy Noelle for quick and easy teeth whitening treatments.
