Nails Lounge pampers its clients the moment they walk through the door. The soothing decor, replete with warm colors and natural accents, prepares clients for their nail or spa services of choice. Long-stemmed roses greet patrons at each table as they sit down for a manicure, during which nail techs exfoliate the skin and sink hands into ultramoisturizing paraffin wax. During a pedicure, lower limbs enjoy scented scrubs and massages while clients sip from glasses of champagne perched on an attached shelf. The massage room wraps its visitors inside its tranquil aura as they lie down for a Swedish massage or a hot-stone massage that heals soreness while integrating Swedish techniques. A screen, painted with cherry-blossom branches, creates stress-dissolving serenity with the illusion of a natural landscape. Aestheticians also keep skin healthy and smooth with deep-cleansing facials, exfoliating body scrubs, and body wraps.
Clip's 2000 Hair and Nails is housed in a cheery cottage with rustic hardwood floors, colorful walls, and a soft sofa to lounge on while flipping through glossy fashion magazines. Within this warm and welcoming space, a team of cheerful stylists and nail technicians perform a sweeping array of salon services, from trendy haircuts to glamorous manicures to expert waxing services. The skilled staffers favor quality haircare products from top brands, including replenishing Rusk shampoos and conditioners.
County Line Beauty Salon's technicians have more than 15 years of experience turning unremarkable locks into strikingly colorful and masterfully cut coifs. After clients declare their desired look, stylists snip hairs into place before skillfully deploying blow-dryers to create a lustrous, straightened sheen not unlike that of a freshly ironed snakeskin. Those who choose to top newly cropped coifs with some color can sit back as the salon's stockpile of Redken products power a color conversion that rehues strategically chosen strands to create dynamic partial highlights. A face-framing new cut and blow-dry takes about 45 minutes and highlights usually take an additional hour of chair time. Both treatments can translate into a youthful-looking head, which often translates into a youthful strut and a plethora of compliments from friends, strangers, and the insides of hats. Though not included with this Groupon, full highlights are available for an additional cost.
Salon Chic Downtown’s owner, Rose Zagra, draws on 20 years of beauty-industry experience and nine years as a Creative Nail Design master technician to orchestrate a symphony of luxurious beauty treatments. To guarantee personalized service, each treatment, like all good superhero-sidekick relationships, kicks off with a one-on-one question-and-answer session. Salon Chic's nail technicians have all spent at least five years beautifying extremities, and can beautify nails with traditional polish, long-lasting CND Shellac, or artificial tips that lengthen fingers without having to spike the hand cream with fertilizer. The salon’s hair services include texture-altering treatments that range from perms to Brazilian blowouts, and its facials and chemical peels employ products from Bioelements and SkinMedica to rejuvenate skin.
A.R.T. Massage Body Spa takes its name from the three adjectives that describe each one of its services: advanced, relaxing, and therapeutic. The staff promises their clients will enjoy the latest techniques designed to both soothe the mind and relieve specific needs. Massage therapies thwart tension and improve range of motion, and custom spray tans give skin a sun-kissed glow without having to find a sun-size box of chocolates first. Using Éminence Organic products, the staff cleanses skin and fights signs of aging during signature, cleansing, or organic express facials with blends of organic herbs, fruits, and vegetables rich with nutrients.
Set inside a 1920s bungalow, the spa decorates each private room in modern decor with subtle touches, such as finger bells and aromatics, that appeal to all senses. Before or after treatments, patrons can peruse a selection of clothing, candles, handbags, and jewelry inside the spa’s retail area, which also sells the Éminence Organic skincare line.
A Touch of Heaven Salon Massage & Day Spa stocks a large inventory of well-respected pampering products. Nail technicians employ OPI and Gelish polish, and hairstylists primp tresses with smart Solutions, Redken, Sexy Hair, and KMS products. An assemblage of massage therapists and aestheticians performs indulgent work at the spa too, allying to relax and beautify their clients. They execute 10 varieties of massage, from the gentle, simple Swedish to the choreographed complexity of the four-handed massage—performed by two therapists or one octopus also juggling four tennis balls. They combine treatments of the body's inner tissues with herbal or peppermint-scented wraps to rejuvenate the outer layer.
Outside of the private rooms lies the salon proper, where stylists carefully ply their craft on the hair and nails of their patrons. They imbue locks with new color, wax away unwanted hair, and even provide spray tans to maintain a summery glow throughout winter's tenure.
