The aestheticians at Nails 4 U treat nails as tiny canvases awaiting a dash of color and self-expression. Besides lacquering digits in a kaleidoscope of hues with gel polishes during spa mani-pedis, they execute skin-smoothing waxing services.
Expansive, sunny windows illuminate the deep-red walls framing Mid City Salon’s elegant space, where trained aestheticians groom keratin-based parts with a range of treatments. Stylists revamp hair with trimming and chemical services that alter color and texture without attempting high-risk crayon implantation. Manicurists, meanwhile, outfit natural and acrylic nails in decorative swipes of polish, creating long-lasting style with CND Shellac applications or trendy designs such as cheetah print and flowers. Aestheticians can also rework façades with a quick brow and lip wax or a flawless makeup application. For offsite pampering, stylists arrive at homes during salon birthday parties to give girls aged 3 and older a chic updo, a smattering of glitter makeup, and polished nails that make them feel like adults without memorizing tax-return terminology.
Within the commercial bustle of the Fashion Place Mall, Studio H20 Salon's professional stylists focus on communication, taking the time for consultations with each client before styling a single strand. The clean lines and metallic accents of the salon's industrial-chic interior parallels the modern styles that depart daily on the heads of their many customers. Additionally, hair is treated to services such as dimensional coloring (Studio H20's specialty) and top-notch salon products by such brands as Bumble and bumble and K?rastase. Hair artistry is supplemented by other beauty services, such as manicures dolled out by staff at nearby nail stations and compliments from talking mirrors.

Pro Tip: It's best to have a clear vision of what you want, or bring a picture.
The sweet irony of becoming a stylist is that no matter how good you are, you can never give yourself a haircut. What do you look for in a stylist when you need a trim?
I look for a stylist that will have a proper consultation and listen to what I want. They need to be precise and up-to-date with styles they provide.
What's the number one grooming tip every person should know?
Use a treatment oil on your hair each time you wash it, get a deep-condition once a month, and stay consistent with getting haircuts.
What other services do you offer besides haircuts?
Color, highlighting, deep-conditions, scalp treatments, blowouts, and special-occasion styles.
