The talented staff of stylists and aestheticians at Ahead of the Curve provides customers with a variety of top-notch beautification services. Peruse a variety of quality hair, nail, and skin products from Kenra, American Crew, Biolage, and OPI before spiffing up noodle nests with a women’s ($25) or men’s ($17) haircut. Add a dash of color to grayscale mop tops with a single-color process ($50), or prepare for a special occasion with a classy updo ($40), which will certainly make a better impression than last year’s trendy cat hat made of a single, live, disgruntled cat. Melt away stress like a pocketful of popsicles with a one-hour massage ($50), or pamper finger and toe shingles with a manicure ($20) and express pedicure ($30).
Inside their studio, the nail artists at Pink Nails and Spa expertly tackle careworn hands and feet with pampering mani-pedis and OPI polishes. Before applying these colorful shades, staff can groom hands and feet with hot stones, specialty masks, and massages while customers recline in the customer-controlled massage chairs. The shop also specializes in Shellac polish, which maintains a chip-free façade for up to two weeks after application so clients can immediately start wearing their brillo-pad mittens after sessions.

Lason and Spa's continually educated stylists sculpt and tint fading follicles into mane masterpieces with an extensive menu of contemporary cut and coloring options. Skillfully wielding the Pureology, Aquage, and American Crew product lines, scalp whisperers cut and style ladies' locks ($32), men's follicle crowns ($22), and children's curls ($15) into coifs that will elicit awestruck stares and shoulder-dislocating double takes from passersby. Take inspiration from the studio's soothing earth tones and adorn your 'do with a warm, single-process color ($50+), or accent strands while improving UHF reception with a half- ($60) or whole-head foiling ($70+).
Despite the singular focus implied by its name, Da Vinci Nails and its full menu of salon services actually caters to the full-body aesthetic needs of men and women of all ages. Nail treatments are the shop’s specialty, though, and the technicians can transform a simple trim and polish into a pampering experience by incorporating additional treatments including scented scrubs and hot-stone massages. Beyond these mani-pedis, the staff also rejuvenates cheekbones and improves skin tone with facials and peels. The salon’s massage therapists also ease overly stressed muscles, relieving the strains that can cause chronic backaches and fatigue.
From her workspace inside the Fringe Hair Salon, nail artist Rachel Lane disinfects and sterilizes her tools before every manicure and pedicure, and carries out each treatment with laser-like attention to cleaning, filing, and shaping the nails and cuticles. After each treatment, clients leave with brightly polished digits or Shellac layers, which give nails a gloss that shines for up to two weeks without fading or synchronizing with the colors of a malign mood ring.
