A cream-colored spa accented by green sprouts, marble, and stone sets the stage for relaxation at Aqua Lifestyle Nail Salon & Spa, where skilled aestheticians bolster beauty with services for the skin, hair, and nails. Wrinkles and furrows fade into oblivion as the staff tightens skin with Lumière LED facials and turns back the clock on sun damage with the lightening peel’s cocktail of lactic acid and brightening serums. Kneeling at the foot of 1 of 17 plush pedicure chairs, a technician culls overgrowing nails, curbs wayward cuticles, and ousts spent skin with a sea-salt scrub, promoting relaxation and the joyful urge to commute via kickline. Among the salon’s other services, airbrush tanning bronzes bodies without UV exposure and gentle head-to-toe waxing treatments strip away hair with warm wax.
Inside Red Nails salon, massaging pedicure chairs await grateful patrons, inviting them to release stress as they simultaneously pamper their feet. Owner Cristine leads a team of experienced technicians at the nail studio, and ensures clients will be absolutely ready to wow onlookers during sandal season or at their next bare-knuckle boxing match.
At all of Q Nails And Tanning's stations, the cosmetologists and manicurists display their licenses, and they're happy to talk about them with customers. That's because, in addition to being highly trained in their fields, the staff members take pride in their ability to foster easygoing conversation and cultivate a social, laid-back environment where clients feel comfortable and welcome. As clients and technicians engage in comfortable back-and-forth, fingers and toes find their own things to brag about, including new sets of acrylic, gel, or pink-and-white nails that enable them to steal the thunder back from player pianos. Once fingers and toes are looking polished, clients can better the rest of the body with lie-down or standup tanning sessions, as well as facials, waxing services, and eyelash extensions.
At Premier Cuts Plus, the staff's primary goal is to help clients feel their best from the moment they pass through the arched stone entryway that separates the reception desk from the main salon. Soft music and sounds from a trickling fountain collide harmoniously with the low din created by the studio's stylists, aestheticians, nail technicians, and opera-trained massage therapists as they dole out a full spectrum of treatments designed to keep hair, skin, nails, and muscles in peak form. Floor-to-ceiling columns partition each hairstyling station, providing privacy for the jet-black chairs and shy shampoo bowls that assist stylists as they deftly trim, sculpt, and color strands with products by Pureology and Murad. All guests enjoy complimentary beverages with their treatments, though those planning to linger longer can choose to enjoy the light lunch included in several spa packages or travel with their own hibachi chef.
A summer spent swimming laps can be great for your body, but hazardous for your hair. Thankfully, the stylists at Merrill Hair Designers, Inc. strive to heal damaged strands with chlorine- and mineral-removal treatments that restore hair's resilience and shine. Working with a fresh slate, the team can then consult with clients to settle on a new look. For instance, a Brazilian Blowout could smooth out frizz for straighter locks, or extensions can add length more efficiently tying barbells to each strand. To help friends find a flattering cut, clients can even throw a group party complete with pastries and beverages.
The salon also offers nail and spa services, from acne-fighting facials to therapeutic massages. Every skincare package, whether it's an oxygen facial with fruit enzymes or a chemical peel, is highly customized to suit specific skin types.
In music, the term adagio means "slow tempo." Likewise, Salon Adagio serves as an oasis amid the hectic bustle of daily life, commanding clients to relax with a variety of spa and salon treatments. The spa's aestheticians erase blemishes with chemical peels or use noninvasive ultrasonic technology to jump-start collagen production and firm skin tone, and massage therapists relieve muscle tension with relaxing or therapeutic modalities. Along with painting nails with chip-resistant Shellac polish, technicians round out mani-pedis with soothing paraffin treatments and scented scrubs. At the salon, stylists shape tresses into trendy new looks, and a Mystic Tan booth—available at the Rogers location—bronzes skin evenly without exposing it to the harmful UV rays emitted by tanning beds and solar-powered calculators.
