When working with clients’ hands, the master nail technicians of Unforgettable Nails do everything by hand. Using anywhere from 18 to 21 years of professional experience, practitioners paint nail-art designs and resurface artificial nails—fiberglass, gel, or acrylics—by hand instead of using drills or tiny zambonis. The entire staff is licensed to perform CND Shellac manicures, which can be upgraded with treatments such as paraffin dips and skin-soothing hand “facials.” Beyond a row of whirlpool-spa pedicure chairs is a massage room, where licensed therapists assuage muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone techniques.
Richa’s Threading Salon & Spa has perfected the art of eyebrows. During threading sessions, the aesthetician lassos each individual hair with a piece of thread and pulls that hair from the brow line. This technique quickly shapes brows into clean arches.
In addition to their eyebrow work, Richa’s beauty experts pamper bodies with haircare and spa services that range from henna applications to facials. For head-to-toe rejuvenation, skilled hands clip and style strands, make eyes pop with eyelash extensions, and soothe sore muscles with massages.
The owners of Twinkle Twinkle Little Spa believe in emphasizing inner and outer beauty by featuring child-friendly candy and ice-cream-scented beauty treatments as well as crafting sessions. In addition to individual or group spa packages, they also offer mommy-and-me spa facials and spa parties with princess gowns, face paintings, and karaoke.
Meander through the sunny rooms of Trenditions Salon, and you can catch a glimpse of stylist Rebecca snipping up a sleek pixie cut or Tara coloring hair in glimmering golden highlights. During football season, you might spot stylist Cheryl adorning locks with bold purple tinsel extensions in honor of the Baltimore Ravens. The trio of seasoned hairdressers bustle across the salon's handsome hardwood and cheerful checkered floors, performing an array of hair services for women, men, and children alike. They smooth frizz with advanced hair-glossing and Japanese straightening treatments, and arrange locks into elegant up-dos for formal events. The versatile beauticians also extend their expertise to facial waxing and transform faces with professional makeup application services—ideal for brides primping for their big days or competitors in very serious games of hide-and-go-seek.
The staff of Today's Image Tanning keeps customers of any skin type and tone comfy with high- and low-pressure beds in both reclining and vertical configurations. Gold-plate your entire surface with 8 to 20 minutes of exposure, or enjoy a UV-free Mystic Tanning session. Using three levels of spray and instant bronzer, a skilled technician will create an instant "fresh from the beach/shipwreck" look without requiring users to build a base tan or a base camp. Today's Image Tanning maintains a tranquil atmosphere that is 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 134.3% spa. Relax before or after your tan or skin rejuvenation and chat with one of its friendly, knowledgeable staff members. They'll come up with a tanning regimen that emulates C-3PO's gilded hue without transforming you into the prissy comic relief of your social circle.
When she isn’t taking time to work with her many youth-based organizations, owner Lakiesha Jernagin leads her team of licensed cosmetologists as they help enhance the natural beauty of customers with hairstyling services, nailcare, and facials. The salon is split into two floors, providing plenty of space and privacy for customers. On the first floor, conditioning services repair hair damaged from the sun’s rays or the moon’s disapproving gaze, while cuts and colors update looks to accentuate facial features. Damaged nails regain strength on the second floor, where pedicure chairs and manicure stations reside. Inside private treatment rooms, spa services such as facials and massages ward off tension.
The warm glow of wall sconces and crystal chandeliers bathes the earth-hued salon in elegant light, illuminating the team of certified stylists and colorists as they reinvent hairstyles from behind plush styling chairs. They draw from professional name-brand products, such as L’Oréal Professionnel and Moroccanoil, as they perform cuts, colors, and smoothing treatments. Nail techs, meanwhile, lavish digits in decorative polishes as aestheticians shoot for epidermal excellence with facials, makeup applications, and waxing services. Staffers also offer in-house and onsite bridal services, prepping brides-to-be and their life-size cake toppers for the big day.
