At Lady Fingers Salon, run-of-the-mill beauty treatments get their own makeover. Nail technicians upgrade manicures with long-lasting Shellac polish and Vinylux top coats. Hairstylists, meanwhile, infuse frizz-beleaguered hair with keratin treatments to deter flyaways and imbue locks with shine, and color treatments use organic All-Nutrient products. Waxing specialist Christina Durham plies her trade on hair of a different sort, waxing away unwanted fuzz across the physique.
Four of the five staff members at Sciascia's Salon & Boutique boast more than 15 years of experience in their respective trade. With the attending knowhow, they render hair services such as waves and color applications. The staff can also perform mani-pedis and whole-leg waxes, or half-leg waxes if your thighs are robotic.
The Hair Dashery has dutifully kept all types of hair in line for more than 30 years with a deluxe menu of styling services. Its skilled stylists can craft voluminous layers, sew in weaves, or straighten strands with relaxers. The salon also provides services for those experiencing hair loss, using the American Cancer Society–certified hair-loss specialist it has on hand. Clients may also solicit an aesthetician for a makeup application, lash extensions, or a durable coat of Shellac nail polish.
A towering shelf of styling products waits inside Anointed Hands House of Beauty & Nails. With those items and a pair of scissors, one of the stylists can snip and design looks to suit each client's personality and lifestyle. Away from the salon chairs, aestheticians sculpt nails and coat them in polish. The business also celebrates different days of the week such as Friendly Fridays, which encourage friends to get shampoos side by side.
Pay a visit to a full-service salon such as Profiles Hair and Nail Studio, and vent your stress directly through the ducts on your fingers and toes. At Profiles, visitors can have a wide range of digits pampered, limited only by the number of phalanges they possess. With a complete manicure and pedicure ($60), the gracefulness of every hand or foot motion will be enhanced, from scratching chalkboards to poking holes in paper walls and using toenails to pry the tops off cans of sauerkraut. Using OPI and Essie polishes, one of Profile’s trio of experienced and friendly nail stylists will attend to your 10 palm fronds for half an hour, then commence a 60-minute pedicure that includes an organic-coconut-oil-fueled knee-high leg massage, leaving you cleaner than a freshly scrubbed bar of soap and trimmed more neatly than a doorframe.

the growth of natural nails
Born and raised in Birmingham, Bonnie now pretties up her hometown one fingernail at a time. She trained at Linda's School of Beauty before refining her skills over the next 14 years as a manicurist. During that time, she came to appreciate how much using a quality product can help make her treatments stand out; that's why she employs brands such as OPI, Creative Nail Design, and Qtica. She particularly recommends shellac gels for busy women, as the colorful gel polish dries quickly, lasts up to 14 days, and won't chip.
