A lot of people get manicures and pedicures for the results. Nail Garden is intent on making sure their clients enjoy the process, as well. After settling into a pedicure chair with a cup of tea or glass of wine, your feet soak in a pipe-free basin with orange slices floating on the water's surface. Nail techs perform a hand or foot massage with each treatment, often using a warmed anti-oxidant oil.
And Nail Garden's techs promise that if your polish chips within the first 72 hours after you get your nails done, they'll redo it and you won't have to pay a single cent in return or give them one of your treasured livestock. These extra touches have drawn a noteworthy crowd, with Us Weekly reporting visits from celebs such as Vanessa Hudgens.
In addition to spa manicures and pedicures, the staff performs treatments such as lash tintings, lash-extension applications, and teeth whitening. Depending on the location, decor elements might include hand-blown light pendants or preserved trees.

Krimson Hair Studio styles clients with an array of primping, shearing, and styling services. Dabble in makeover dramatics with a haircut and blowout by one of Krimson's friendly, gifted hair designers. A nimble-fingered shampoo and deep-conditioning treatment soothe scalps like a reverse petting soothes horses, while the haircut and style transform dull 'dos into brilliantly burning hair fires. Opt for a soak-off gel lacquer manicure finished with perky OPI polish to draw attention to your fingerparts, or a bikini wax to rid yourself of follicle forests. Male humans can get a shampoo, haircut, and blow-dry while relaxing amid lemon-soaked walls warmed by wood accents, stained-glass light fixtures, and keyhole-inspired windows.

More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.
