The staff members at Essential Styles have mastered head-to-toe beauty services. They take on unkempt hair with haircuts and relaxers, enlisting the help of Paul Mitchell, Essations, Mizani, and Nairobi Professional products. Or, for an entirely different look, they sew in or bond weaves. For faces, they arch eyebrows and thicken lashes with extensions. Finally, they turn to fingernails and toenails, rounding out their top-to-bottom treatment menu with manicures, pedicures, and intricate nail art, such as drawings of smaller toenails on larger toenails to mimic a matryoshka doll.
Get your hair ready for fish-teasing season with a haircut and style ($35+) from one of Salon Urbanity's innovative stylists, or artificially infuse a sun-kissed look into your 'do with full foil highlights ($70+). You can also freshen up for an upcoming passport photo with a microdermabrasion treatment ($120+). Salon Urbanity's skilled technician will peel away the years by exfoliating the top microlayer of facial skin, leaving it looking refreshed and young enough to earn double-profiles from airport security, and an indulgent French manicure ($22+) will spiff up sorry fingernails. And if your new career in plantain farming has made your muscles tense and tightened, opt for a relaxating relaxation massage ($60 for 60 minutes) and feel troubles melt away like a dropped ice-cream cone in the Sahara.
Luxurious gel manicures and natural-nail makeovers are within arm's reach at Jessica Favre Nails.
