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.
Inside Felisha's Salon, the experience technicians who make up Platinum Nails do more than just trim and buff back scratchers. They take the time to completely eliminate tension with luxurious hand and foot massages, exfoliating scrubs, and charms enchanted by a really relaxed wizard. They apply nail lacquer in a spectrum of colors and gel acrylics featuring the client's choice of design.
For more than 20 years, Pauline Bertrand and her staff have built Nails-Go-Round into a brain trust for innovations in natural and artificial nail enhancements. Nail artisans paint meticulous handcrafted designs, along with a diverse salon menu of acrylic nails, UV gel topcoats, and more than 90 hues of Shellac and traditional polish. Clients can also supplement mani-pedis with luxury services such as exfoliating scrubs and relaxing hand massages that leave skin as smooth as a seal who’s just talked his way into a herring tank.
At Presidio Hair & Nails, seasoned manicurist Kim calls upon 18 years of nail-salon experience to buff and beautify clients’ appendage-enders. The skilled beautician dolls up digits by adhering a french acrylic nail to each fingernail, shielding scratchers in style mined from below the streets of Paris. Once nails begin to grow out, clients can schedule a follow-up fill appointment to extend the acrylic nails' lifespan. Alternatively, Kim can pamper both hands and feet with a mani-pedi that meticulously neatens, shapes, and polishes finger- and toenails.
Masters of the nail universe, Couture Nail Boutique's techs use only brand-name products, such as Gelish, Cuccio, and CND. They apply the colorful polishes during standard or spa mani-pedis, which can include pampering treatments such as masks for feet and paraffin dips for hands. 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.
