Although Sarah Bent spent 13 years as a high-school English/ESL teacher, she recently decided to return to her first passion: cosmetology. Inside Liberty Street Hair and Nail Studio's homey salon, Sarah beautifies clients with hair and nail care. Men, women, and kids alike can get a new style or trim, and she also updates locks with full color or touchups. She also performs mani-pedis and waxes brows and lips to perfection.
Framed by a bold façade of magenta and eggshell white , Le Pink Boutique’s store windows draw in visitors with their extravagant displays of chic, seasonal clothing, swimwear, and jewelry. Like the mesmerizing courtship dance of the lophorina superba, the bustling shop’s exotic decor fascinates passersby with a flurry of feathers and color. Chandeliers cast showers of light through crystal prisms upon walls striped in pink and cream, an antique golden loveseat, and jungles of slender candles and snaky black feather boas. Nestled among the mirrors with gilded frames and strewn-about roses, chunky jewelry and twirly summer dresses hint at adorable outfits to come, and mannequins flaunt saucy lingerie ensembles.
When greeting clients, Top Line Nails's Jimmy is friendly, funny, and charming. When it comes to actually painting nails, though, he's all business. He provides his clients with intricate, hand-painted designs, transforming each nail into a unique work of art which complements its neighbors. He often paints these creations in the style of French tips, leaving the bulk of the nail a natural pale pink, while the tops boast sparkling finishes that fade from blue to pink, intricate patterns of palm fronds or flowers, or even hearts and tiny gems.
