As mothers, entrepreneurs, and self-proclaimed fashionistas, co-owners Shantell and Taffi understand the importance of taking time out to care for one's nails, hands, and feet. With that understanding they opened SistaSista Nail Spa, where women of all trades can maintain the health and appearance of their extremities by having damaged acrylics repaired or getting help for conditions such as dehydrated skin, corns, and calluses, which can negatively affect one’s ability to create shadow puppets. During natural manicures and pedicures, the duo details cuticles, trims nails, and massages hands and feet before beautifying nails with a high-shine buff, a Gelish polish, or patterned Minx nails. Additionally, they can educate clients on how to improve the condition of their digits in between treatments.
Behind the bright pink door of Nevaeh Salon & Spa, Brittany Demny transforms hair with a slate of salon services. In the glow of saffron walls, hardwood floors, and clients' inner beauty, Demny snips strands, adds color, and smooths out kinks alongside her cheerful colleagues.
At Bath Junkie, shopping is an interactive experience. Upon entering the store, clients peruse bath products, including scrubs and lotions, and pick a base. Then they sniff and hachoo through more than 200 scents, identifying one, two, or three fragrances and a color for their product. With the client's personalized recipe in hand, a beauty expert whips up the formula and readies it for sale. Each product is crafted to minimize harm to the environment, and Bath Junkie offers paraben-free hair products, recyclable containers, and kisses on both cheeks from Mother Nature herself.
