Cashmere Salon and Day Spa refers to its clients as the Cashmere family, a fitting pseudonym both because of the facility's welcoming atmosphere and because the beauty haven is arguably large enough to actually be a second home. From within a spacious interior, staff members perform almost every traditional beautifying service known to the industry. In addition to a selection of essential hair, nail, and skin services, the seemingly unending menu includes specialized treatments such as extensions, keratin treatments, brow tinting, and individual lash extensions, as well as more long-term fixes such as laser hair removal and nonsurgical face-lifts. The spa even offers injectables such as Dysport, Botox, and Juvéderm for those who want to turn back the hands of time instead of trying to slow them down with a secret handshake.
Margarita Pinkhasova?a.k.a., Rita of Rita's Nail?pretties up fingers and toes from the comforts of Arbach's Goodhair Salon. With long-lasting beauty in mind, Rita artfully applies traditional and shellac polish that can remain chip-free for up to two weeks. She also tames unruly brows and smoothens out other facial areas with swift yet gentle waxing sessions.
At Nail Tek by Qi Spa, the polish is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. The spa's manicures and pedicures rewrite the book on relaxation, each starting with a hand soak and a massage to lure cuticles into a false sense of security. Then, the technician files each nail tip into a perfect crescent and applies polish in your choice of color. Pedicures here are especially indulgent, as whirlpool spa chairs ready feet for callus removal and an exfoliating sugar scrub seals the deal. The spa also features a full suite of waxing services.
After beginning to adopt more environmentally conscious practices in their personal lives, hairstylists Joy and Jeremy realized how hard the salon atmosphere could be on Mother Nature and set out to open their own eco-friendly salon. Their salon's open floor plan, organized into chic styling stations and suffused in natural light from numerous surrounding windows, highlights bright modern salon furniture, all of which is reused. In addition to the décor, their green reach expands to the salon's all-natural styling products and energy-efficient, retractable blow dryers, which dangle from the ceiling like a paratrooper after a poorly executed landing. Their resident aestheticians, nail techs, and massage therapists dole out the salon's expansive menu of services, pampering clients with custom facials, head-to-toe waxing treatments, and relaxing mani-pedis.
