Great Waves has been servicing the nails of Tucson residents for the past 30 years. Designed for durability and street-wise shine, the non-chip shellac manicure treats all tips to a fortnight finish for the entirety of two well-kempt weeks. In a session, Great Waves' veteran nail technicians target rogue cuticles, reshape requisite regions, and leave a lush coat of one of many hybrid nail polishes from Creative Nail Design, a globally recognized product line. Ladies can choose the tone that speaks to them or, if preferred, opt for a colorful collaboration with Great Waves' creative and personable 'curists. No matter what tonal transformation takes place, refreshed guests can strut back to the outside world with nails resistant to chipping, peeling, and merman mind-control for up to 14 days. Appointments are required; call to schedule your visit.
Salon Nouveau's sunny staff subdue everyday stresses with refreshing spa treatments. A new service fashioned by the salon's aestheticians, the soothing session is a relaxing regimen that hydrates and revitalizes tired skin, while kneading away muscle stress acquired after years on the competitive cheese-rolling circuit. Relax as an aesthetician begins the treatment with a light brushing—which aims to activate circulation and lightly exfoliate skin—followed by the addition of aromatic essential oils, relaxing the pelt until it falls dreamily into its dermal REM cycle. The paramount pampering experience culminates as the professional muscle magician soothes and caresses strained sinews with targeted strokes, leaving the body loose, luminous, and ready to backbend back into the world.

Just as talented at applying wax as they are at applying nail polish, the spa's techs also remove unwanted hair with a full menu of waxing services.
