Jolie Nails' staff rewards deserving fingers and toes for their services with sturdy Shellac manicures and pedicures rendered extra soothing by hot-stone massages. Manicures upgrade the usual grooming and polishing with Shellac treatments that achieve the best digit flattery since the Muppets threw a party for the number 9. Shellac first slathers fingernails with separate layers of gel that harden under a special lamp, imbuing nails with super strength that lasts two weeks. Meanwhile, pedicures turn tattered foot eyesores into prettily polished desk ornaments. Jolie Nails’ hot-stone foot massages then mollify bipedal muscles, helping to restore healthy circulation denied by socks and house-arrest anklets. Shellac manicures typically last 15–20 minutes, and hot-stone pedicures take 30–40 minutes.

D’Lazo Hair Salon & Spa’s owner, Rachel Lazo, personally designed the business’s interior in 2006. The salon’s 14-foot walls give way to an exposed industrial ceiling that clings to dangling chandeliers and extra-long ponytails not ready to say goodbye. Learned stylists clip hair, add dimension with polychromatic highlights, and sculpt fanciful updos for weddings. Across the way, soothing music softly tickles ears throughout D’Lazo’s spa zone, where a roster of services banishes stress. Seasoned hands swoop across backs to deliver deep-tissue massages, and hot stones warmly loosen the spine with heat more effectively than a hula-hoop fresh from the microwave.
