At her station in Bella Salon, Michelle Schubert designs nail art that channels dexterous, detail-oriented skills that carry over from her personal hobbies of sewing and crafting. She customizes nail designs to suit her clients’ personalities and the special occasions for which they have their nails done, from weddings to ceremonial scratch-offs of winning lottery tickets. Beyond her ability to create these tiny masterpieces, Michelle also specializes in traditional manicures, pedicures, and services with Shellac polish, which resists chipping for up to two weeks.
At Nails on First & Hair 2, patrons have their pick of more than just beautifying services such as highlights, gel manicures, and spray tanning. That's because the salon doubles as a boutique, selling purses, wallets, and greeting cards. This gives the neighborhood establishment a comfy vibe where patrons can gather to bring out their best appearances, shop for gifts, and compare red highlights with a 2010 shiraz. And they can also take comfort in the fact that the salon staff averages more than a decade of experience in their respective trades.
Sunrise Salon Tan & Spa's bronzing experts do more than just clean up after their glow-seeking clientele. The indoor tanning consultants earn their title by helping clients choose the proper bed, booth, or spray-tan session, hand-selecting options based on their skin type, desired hue, and the amount of time they're willing to dedicate to tanning. All of the spa's beds max out at 12 minutes, allowing guests to adopt a golden glow in roughly the same amount of time it takes to unlace a giant’s high-top sneaker. To complement newly shaded physiques, the salon also offers hairstyling, nail design, and facial waxing, as well as therapeutic massage to help relax bodies too busy to actually make it to the beach.
