While visitors relax in cushy pedicure chairs or rest hands on granite tabletops, nail techs perform treatments that range from tropical enzyme-induced exfoliation to skin-rejuvenating clay masks. Then, even coats of OPI or Essie polish get nails looking thumb-war ready. For a more extensive revamp, purifying facials and smoothing waxing services are also available.
The blush of pastel-pink walls swathes the interior of Myers Park Spa & Nails in a serene, feminine glow, where a staff of experts specializes exclusively in nail and waxing services. Nail technicians work diligently to refine their clients' fingers and toes, soaking them to softness in warm-water baths before crowning them in long-lasting coats of Axxium or Gelish lacquer. Tucked away in private rooms, aestheticians slick warm wax onto skin before uprooting unwanted hair along faces and bodies, leaving them smooth, hair free, and the envy of dolphin roommates for up to eight weeks.

Red and black polka dots dapple NoDa Nail Salon's walls as concentric circles lace the waiting-area rug, mirroring droplets of vibrant polish as they're brushed onto toes and fingertips. As guests sip complimentary beverages atop sleek chairs or cushioned pedicure thrones, expert technicians beautify natural and acrylic nails alike, daubing them with polishes by OPI and China Glaze or longer-lasting formulas from Gelish and Shellac. Specialty treatments, such as rejuvenating dips in paraffin wax or gel powder finishes, boost extremity enhancements to round out the array of customizable services. The salon also gears manicures and pedicures toward men with clear polish or buff finishes, and toward children and young adults by offering special youth rates and polishing nails with Scantron answer-sheet patterns.
Inspired by the legacy of their grandfathers—stylish gents by the names of Lewis "Emerson" Smith and Gabor "Joseph" Takats—Shelly Hutchins and Stacy Donnelly wanted to create a place where men could relax and enjoy some masculine pastimes. Their salon, Emerson Joseph, offers exactly that. In addition to male-focused hair and spa services, the space boasts a pool table and flat-screen TVs announcing the latest in sports. During appointments, the stylists treat faces to hot-towel wraps, trim cuticles and hangnails, and serve complimentary beverages. They even polish off haircuts with a quick shoeshine, a true gentleman's service that's almost as classic as the spit-shine facial.
