Beams of sunlight pour through the windows of Newport Hair Design, bouncing off ornate mirrors, peering through tall plants, and gliding across sleek, cherry-wood cabinets. The salon?s talented stylists mimic the modern aesthetic of their ornate styling stations as they shear inches from locks, light up hairstyles with gleaming colors, and level out frizzy locks with japanese-straightening and keratin treatments. After outmoded hairdos have been updated, manicurists take the beauty-boosting baton and run with it, trimming, filing and reshaping the nails on fingers and toes. Waxing technicians complete top-to-bottom makeovers by removing hair from the face, limbs, and Brazilian regions, leaving the body as smooth as a figure-skating saxophonist.
For the team at Hand Jobs Nails & More, nails aren't just surfaces for buffing and polishing. Instead, they're canvases upon which the team applies custom painted nail art, with designs that have ranged from leopard prints to Halloween-themed pumpkins and spiders. They can even adorn nails with jewelry, including 14k charms and crowns. The crew pampers nails with classic manicures and pedicures or spa-style treatments, such as massages and soaks.
Inside KE Salon, nail technician Gabriella Barrese meticulously grooms fingers and toes with manicures and pedicures. She begins each treatment by trimming cuticles and plying skin with hydrating Salt of the Earth lotions. From there, Gabriella files nails and brushes on traditional or long-lasting gel polish. Gabriella also performs pedicures that remove calluses and moisturize feet, and she can follow up treatments by painting nails.
