At Hair Market Junction, Lyca Loy—with more than 21 years of experience—pampers mitts during the approximately one-hour Shellac manicure by massaging wearied paws before trimming cuticles and filing digit hats. She then tops off claws with a french-manicure Shellac coating or your choice of color, both of which can stay chip-free for several weeks and while bare-knuckle boxing with grizzly bears.

Behind the floor-to-ceiling windows of Ovation Salon's façade, stylist Kiwi Pinger-Easton sits her clients down inside modern white chairs as she clips, colors, styles, and reinvents their 'dos. Meanwhile, nail technicians primp fingers and toes with mani-pedis, which are punctuated by the exfoliating touch of sweetly scented scrubs.
