Upon entering Tiffany Nail Spa, guests immediately encounter a soothing environment. Long, textured curtains provide a sense of privacy between pedicure chairs, and red hanging lanterns cast a romantic glow over marble-topped manicure stations. But even more soothing than the decor are the services––aestheticians massage feet with hot stones, improve complexions with facials, loosen up knots with massages, and unveil smooth, hairless skin with waxing treatments instead of body wraps made of sticky bubblegum.
A bold red couch jumps out against white walls like a fire hydrant in fresh snow to signal the vivid nail painting going on in the studio. At Magnifique Nail Studio, skilled nail technicians pamper digits with services such as gel manicures and deluxe pedicures. In addition to bold hues, the team’s toolkit includes sugar scrubs, foot soaks, and callus removals. Technicians perform manicures with both function and comfort in mind; clients relax on high-backed, cushioned leather seating that looks out over glossy hardwood floors.
For more than 20 years, Forever-French Salons' staff members have beautified clients' fingers and toes with everything from familiar nail treatments to its signature French-style acrylics. The popularity of the pink-and-white acrylics and gels stems from their glossy, natural look and dependability; they can last for up to four weeks without fading, lifting, or breaking. At the salon's locations in Franklin and Norwood, the staff performs a varied assortment of pampering nail services, including mani-pedis, hand-painted nail art, and no-chip gel manicures.
The hot-stone massages that accompany the signature manicures and pedicures at Nail Studio are just one example of how the staff blends their treatments to transcend expectations. Surrounded by dandelion-colored walls and privacy curtains, clients can indulge in these treatments along with a host of similarly relaxing services designed by the spa’s nail and waxing specialists. Nails take center stage during Diva Treatment pedicures that soothe skin with warm paraffin wax and decorate nail beds with options that include acrylic powder or liquid gel. Waxing services remove unwanted strands quickly, and aestheticians customize their facial treatments to remove dead skin cells or war paint leftover from the previous day’s conquest.
You're laying face down, unsure of what to expect, when you catch a scent. It?s vaguely familiar, but you can?t pinpoint it before the therapist begins massaging your back and shoulders. The lotions and oils seep into your skin and their aromas rock your mind to a sleep-like state. The therapist arranges heated stones along your spine, and, like an electric blanket in a lightning storm, your back suddenly warms, allowing your muscles to complete the transition from tense to relaxed. The next hour flies by.
The hot-stone treatment is just one of five relaxing massage treatments mastered by the licensed staff at A & J Beauty and Day Spa. Aromatic or unscented oils accompany each custom service, be it an indulgent 80-minute Swedish massage or an in-and-out 30-minute mini treatment. The team doles out just as many facials, soothing and rejuvenating both men and women with products tailored to individual needs, and annihilating signs of acne or aging with the needle-free CarboDerm therapy. Their body wraps cocoon clients in seaweed or masks that energize the lymphatic system and firm and tighten physiques, and their mani-pedis incorporate skin-softening paraffin wax and no-chip shellac polish.
When it comes to making hair look great, the stylists at Mogi'z on Newbury know every trick in the book. Haircuts are just the tip of the iceberg that is their treatment menu, which also includes color touchups, highlights, perms, and Japanese straightening treatments. They can even prep hair for special occasions such as weddings and coronations, helping you look your best on the throne with a formal updo or elegant extensions.
