Salon owner and NIC nail technician Katinna Hill never considers her job to be done. She enjoys watching her clients leave Pampered & Polished beaming with pride while toting gleaming nails, but she also continues to fine-tune her techniques through educational classes and workshops. Though trained by Young Nails, OPI, and Creative Nail Design at times throughout her more than 20-year career, Katinna still seeks out the latest industry trends and the legendary nail guide penned by Mona Lisa's beautician.
An Aveda-concept salon, Visual Changes caters to guests' individual needs by providing personalized pampering experiences. The style-boosting Aveda hair spa treatment, which includes a blowdry and style, will keep your follicles feeling loved and your loved ones feeling your follicles until you feel justified charging them a petting fee. The Caribbean therapy manicure pampers skin cells and nerve endings and the special occasion makeup application decorates newly brightened mugs with botanically based pigments, giving faces a cheerful change from clown paint.
This relaxing bastion of beauty offers an arsenal of soothing services, including hydrating facials, fuzz-banishing waxing, eyebrow tinting, and tress taming haircuts to primp up and polish valued patrons. Start de-stressing from the top with a stylish hair cut (women's from $45, men's from $25), or dip below the follicle border with a 45-minute Ayurvedic chocolate herbal facial, complete with warm steam, a customized mask, and a knot-melting massage ($70). A 30-minute essential oil wrap provides all-over skin smoothing with moisturizing warm oil, burnishing bodies with flowing strokes from an exfoliation brush to stimulate the lymphatic system and promote detoxification ($65). Finish your bout of crown-to-sole indulgence with a 60-minute whirlpool pedicure ($55), including a hydrating foot mask and slick of polish to prettify piggies for vigorous toe-texting. To maintain the delicate balance of LD Hair Design Studio’s pampersphere, clients are asked to leave wee ones and their gregarious imaginary friends at the homestead.
Couture Hair Expressions' stylists view their services not just as hair treatments, but also as clients' investments in their inner and outer beauty. The stylists encourage holistic beauty and believe that improvement of overall health can help a person look and feel their best. Each appointment, whether it's for a blowout or conditioning treatment, a simple cut or a full cut, color, and style package, they work with clients to ensure they know what to expect during the process, and how to care for their look after leaving the salon. Staff aestheticians beautify clients' skin in a similar fashion using the ilike organic skin care line from szép élet which is created from organically grown and handpicked herbs. They offer post-treatment techniques to extend their effects, such as suggesting particular creams to reduce acne and avoiding naps in garden ponds to escape that pruney skin look.
