The long row of white-on-white pedicure chairs at Beauzen Nail Salon, with its plush seats and sparkling foot bath bowls, foreshadows the luxurious experience to come. Here, nail technicians spoil the extremities with treatments such as dream pedicures, which soothe aching muscles and soften rough calluses or marine spa pedicures, which soothe conditions such as dry and cracking skin or scurvy. The technicians put all of their focus on fingers and toes, often incorporating extras such as neck massages or paraffin treatments to leave skin healthy and soft.
While most beauticians stake out one facet of the beauty world to call their own, Sandra Evans has spent her 20-plus years in the industry as an aesthetician, nail technician, eyelash extensionist, permanent makeup artist, and waxer. From her station in Chez La Femme Salon, she shares her vast beauty knowledge with her clients. Here, Sandra uses the latest equipment, such as microcurrent and diamond-tip microdermabrasion, to ward of wrinkles, and traditional and permanent makeup to highlight facial features. When it comes to clients’ nails, Sandra turns to her tool kit, which is filled with shellac polishes, therapeutic paraffin wax, and a bunch of leftover parts from an IKEA dresser that don't seem to go anywhere.
Julia, a licensed aesthetician with more than 10 years of experience, combines traditional European skincare techniques with advanced technologies at Velvet Skin Care Therapy. She smoothes skin with facials, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels and naturally evens skin tones with SkinScript skincare products, which contain kojic and arbutin acid. Julia is also a state-certified permanent-makeup artist, and she uses hypoallergenic SofTap pigments to enhance her clients’ eyes, eyebrows, and lips while maintaining a natural look.
At Exquisite Salon and Spa, stylist Wendy cuts, colors, and styles hair. She and her fellow beauty professionals work their magic with an emphasis on calmness and relaxation—whether guests seek salon or spa services inside the gleaming white space, they're guaranteed a "quiet zone," complete with subtle music and soft conversation. Tanning services and Botox are also available for those who prefer to spruce up their looks and clear their heads at the same time.
Refresh Skin Care's name isn't a coincidence. That's because the beauty haven infuses skin with high-quality products from Tao Skin Care and Botanical Science, both of which harness soothing ingredients from the earth to refresh the skin. During services such as facials and microdermabrasions, skin is cleansed, exfoliated, and gently high-fived with nontoxic herbal extracts. And the spa doesn't just refresh skin. It also enhances with waxing, eyelash extensions, and eyelash tinting.
It's no coincidence that the predominant imagery at Neptune 7 Salon & Spa is that of water. The salon's team of stylists pays special attention to this most vital of elements, painting their walls an aquatic blue and enhancing their haircuts with deep-conditioning treatments that inundate follicles with hydration. Thankfully, the menu at their full-service spa doesn't stop at the scalp. Other treatments include waxing, massages, corrective facials, and hydrating paraffin mani-pedis. There's even a teeth-whitening treatment that helps conceal stains caused by drinking coffee or idly chewing on the wrong end of your quill pen.
