Ginger Martin joins a team of experienced Aveda and Paul Mitchell stylists at Little Flower Day Spa, a full-service hair salon and a rejuvenation and relaxation haven. The team pampers guests with skincare and bodycare in five different treatment rooms. Its services range from microdermabrasion treatments and enzyme peels to intense pulsed-light skin-rejuvenation treatments and shellac manicures. Additionally, medical weight-loss management programs use lipotropic B12 injections to help clients lose weight, boost energy, and use “lipotropic” in a sentence at least once today.
The friendly staffers at Aura Salon Spa work their pampering wizardry in a large, modern space. The 30-minute express pedicure kicks off with a sole-softening soak, preparing feet to meet with the buffer and file. Next, cuticles and calluses are removed, stems are moisturized, and tootsies are topped with enough shiny color to garner envy from the Las Vegas Strip. The 30-minute basic manicure converts nails from their natural state of corporate-ladder-climbing claws to elegant, unruffled shapes. Cuticle care and a candy-colored coating complete turkey-stencil transformation.

the growth of natural nails
Born and raised in Birmingham, Bonnie now pretties up her hometown one fingernail at a time. She trained at Linda's School of Beauty before refining her skills over the next 14 years as a manicurist. During that time, she came to appreciate how much using a quality product can help make her treatments stand out; that's why she employs brands such as OPI, Creative Nail Design, and Qtica. She particularly recommends shellac gels for busy women, as the colorful gel polish dries quickly, lasts up to 14 days, and won't chip.
A towering shelf of styling products waits inside Anointed Hands House of Beauty & Nails. With those items and a pair of scissors, one of the stylists can snip and design looks to suit each client's personality and lifestyle. Away from the salon chairs, aestheticians sculpt nails and coat them in polish. The business also celebrates different days of the week such as Friendly Fridays, which encourage friends to get shampoos side by side.
The stylists and spa professionals at Salon Eden can pamper clients from head to toe. Hairstyling services for men and women include everything from cuts and perms to highlights and deep-conditioning treatments. Meanwhile, skin gets special attention during facial treatments that can incorporate hydrating algae masks or therapeutic deep-tissue massages, while specialty skincare treatments such as derma-rolling aim to jump start collagen production and smooth acne scars. And, for extra flourish, the specialists here can administer eyelash perms, extensions, and tints so guests can stop using mascara or clipping hair extensions to their eyelids.
The licensed massage therapists at Beach Massage Spa send calming ripples through human hinges with therapeutic bodywork sessions. In the comfort of a private room, a muscle mender can promote relaxation with Swedish strokes or access lower-layer aches through deep-tissue and sports techniques. Clients may also pair bodywork with indulgent add-ons such as hot-stone kneading and soothing aromatherapy.
