The trained stylists and nail artists behind Laverne Carroll Hair & Nail Lounge make use of recently developed trends and techniques while sculpting hair and pampering nails in a lounge-style atmosphere. In addition to haircuts, they modify manes with perms, relaxers, and sew-in or bonded hair extensions. When they aren't twisting and trimming tresses, they render natural and artificial nail treatments and complement eyes' natural beauty with eyebrow and lash enhancements or glasses that have miniature photos of runway models instead of frames.
