At Envy Spa Salon, an experienced team of stylists and massage therapists tends to the skin and hair of guests. Apart from the signature eyelash extensions for which they're known, the salon also treats guests to spa packages, which invite customers to take a breath with facial treatments and massages. Hair services add bursts of color in highlights or lowlights. Meanwhile, hot stones soothe backs and hot waxes remove unwanted body hair.
If the atmosphere inside The Cat's Meow strikes first-time visitors as particularly familial, the reason may be that the salon’s proprietors share more than aesthetic expertise—all three of them are sisters. For more than 20 years, Melissa Raynak, Pixie Melton, and Meghan Mowbray—along with their team of aestheticians and nail technicians—have pampered skin and nails with treatments that range from basic facials and express pedicures to all-inclusive spa-day packages. In each of their skin-therapy treatments, the spa’s aestheticians employ professional products that eschew mineral oil, lanolin, and allergens such as gluten to ensure that skin responds positively. Armed with bottles of OPI polish and paraffin wax, they turn their attention to fingers and toes to soften calluses and fluff nail beds.

The aestheticians at Serenity Salon welcome clients into a salon whose eggshell-blue walls surround peach-colored manicure stations and sumptuously cushioned pedicure chairs separated by swoops of blue and white chiffon. Nail artists enhance fingertips with bright polish and refresh weary soles with footbaths before layering toenails with a sweet pink or the blushing red of a fire engine caught practicing its dance moves on the station's pole. While banishing fuzz from bikini areas or upper lips, waxing technicians maintain a friendly rapport with clients.
