Color your Tips' lead technician has been doing nails for more than 20 years. At this nail spa located inside Platinum Black Salon, she specializes in artificial enhancements, nail art, and natural mani-pedis. The service menu runs the gamut from acrylic to gel to fiberglass mani-pedis. Color Your Tips favors leading brands of nail products, such as OPI, CND, and China Glaze.
Ashworth's qualified corps of aestheticians and licensed massage therapists administer a full menu of beautifying and de-stressing services. The main salon area's open space serves as an ideal forum for trading gossip, penning existential soliloquies, and caring for nails. During the one-hour mani-pedi pairing, a nail tech carefully crowns your regal fingers and toes with new colors and shines, filling the hearts of baser nails with envy. Customers can also opt for a full spa facial, which swaddles stressed bodies in a refreshing wrap and soothes countenances with restorative lotions and creams. Exfoliation and a steam session bring the face-refining procedure to a finale more refreshing than a brisk morning swim in the Sea of Tranquility.
The professional style shamans and top-notch product lines at Nora's will work together to expertly manipulate manes, converting trippy coif visions into extra-cranial reality. Treat hardworking shoe fillers to a pampering spa pedicure. Or, let the hour-long facial turn your fridge-worthy face into a frame-able abstract finger painting. A deep pore cleanser clears out the pout's delicate potholes before an exfoliation process sloughs away dull, professorial cells to reveal radiant lower layers. Spooky spirit fingers scare off stress with a face and neck massage, and the facial ends with a moisturizer and customized mask.
The skills needed to cut and style natural hair differ from those needed to cut other hair. That’s why the stylists at TK's Styles, Waxing, and Nails specialize in working with natural hair, offering cutting and coloring treatments customized to Asian, Latin, or African hair. Alongside their hair treatments, the stylists offer waxing and nail-grooming treatments that complete grooming packages with a shiny conclusion but without involving lamination.
The pedicure pros at Polished Nail Boutique prettify extremities with an array of moisturizing salves and skillful grooming techniques. Choose from a monthly rotating lineup of aromatic themes, such as papaya star, mandarin honey, and white tea, which restore moisture to the skin while making patrons smell like they got into a fistfight with a produce stand. Each nail is pared and filed to the desired shape and length before an exfoliant is rubbed into the hands, feet, and legs, reliving them of dead-skin freeloaders. The adept aesthetician then applies a moisturizing ointment and dips appendages into melted paraffin, coating them in skin-softening wax and eliminating the need to stomp on lit birthday cakes. Finally, muscles de-stress with a leg and arm massage, which is followed by a coat of nail polish in the desired hue. Opt for Shellac or Minx nail art at an additional cost to make nails resemble the stained glass windows of an ant cathedral.
