Enthusiastic nail technicians at Graffitti's Hair & Nail Salon set vibrantly colored trends with glamorous nail treatments. Technicians buff fingernails into attractive shapes and tame cuticles with careful precision. Then, nail artists apply the client's choice of OPI or China Glaze nail products. Clients can make their fingers and toes shine together with like-minded colors, or indulge in multi-hued shellac finishes that catch eyes, turn necks, and challenge the faith of all paint-by-number enthusiasts. Upgrades for french tips ($5) and nail art ($5+) are also available.
At Beaute Box, which channels the "feel of a chic Paris apartment" according to the Dayton Daily News, owner Lisa Scott flaunts skills acquired during nearly two decades of salon artistry. The studio began as a mobile beauty service, but has evolved to fill a space crowded with clocks, statuettes of hands, and candlesticks. Brushes cloaked in long-wear Shellac polish glide across nails, and visitors awaiting custom-designed primping parties lounge on low-slung couches. Giggles drift up to the soaring ceilings as youngsters finish pampering treatments and race through the shop, admiring newly colorful digits or attempting to match polish to an imaginary friend's eyes.
Ashworth's Beauty Group bestows beauty-seekers and relaxation revelers with a welcoming environment and high-quality, professional product lines for luxurious services and treatments.

Ready fingers for a big night out or a haute night in with an application of acrylic nails by an acrylic-nails specialist.

Potted trees and paintings of scenic getaways welcome visitors into Sundeck Tanning Salon, a beach-themed bronzing studio that is owned and operated by a team of female tanning experts. Posters of bikini-clad beauties provide inspiration to bodies waiting to use the salon's spray-tanning booths and beds, with underlying captions that display tips for maximizing their new glow's lifespan, such as moisturizing it regularly and packing it in ice each night. Tanning products available for purchase lend vibrant pops of color to the shop's clean, white shelves, and include offerings from popular brands such as Swedish Beauty and Australian Gold.
Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, L.A. Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or VersaSpa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
Allurea Salon & Spa’s staffers don’t just cut and color hair—they help restore it with laser treatments that target balding areas on the scalp. They can certainly appreciate a full head of hair, as they spend much of the day straightening and texturizing locks or sewing in extensions for added length. At the same time, the team understands that hair doesn’t always grow where you want it, which is why Allurea includes waxing alongside the makeup applications and mani-pedis that fill out its service menu.
