Blossom Nail Salon's technicians give fingers and toes colorful flair inside a clean, comfortable studio space. As guests perch atop throne-like pedicure chairs, the staff showers attention onto feet and legs, enhancing basic pedicures with indulgent add-ons such as soothing hot stones, massages, and skin-softening paraffin wax. Fingers find similar refinement during hot oil or spa manicures, and may opt for durable gel or Shellac polish, which can withstand chips for far longer than traditional nail polish or false nails carved from robins' eggs. In addition to artful nail enhancements, Blossom Nail Salon's repertoire also includes massage and waxing services for both face and body.
Behind their salon chairs, the stylists at 3rd Avenue Studio cut, color, and deep condition their clients' manes with Bumble and Bumble, Paul Mitchell, and Kevin Murphy products. They also re-texturize hair with thermal straightening, Brazilian blowouts, and relaxers. Away from the salon floor, nail technicians pamper clients with manicures and pedicures enhanced with chip-resistant shellac polishes. Additional treatments include body waxing and therapeutic facials.
The whirring sound of blow dryers competes with audible ooohs and ahhhs escaping from clients’ mouths at Avery Bella Salon and Spa, where a passionate styling crew pampers people from cowlick to toenails. Hairstylists and color specialists sling Kevin Murphy products as they refashion mop tops into chic styles and add depth and dimension with highlights. At the nail station, Nikki the nail tech indulges hands and feet with spa manicures and pedicures and vibrant OPI color. Environmentally friendly cleansers and moisturizers by Éminence are used during exfoliating facials, which a licensed aesthetician customizes for each client. Avery Bella also offers a specially designed salon and spa menu for guys.
The micrdermabrasion package dispatches dull skin cells from faces, necks, and chests using a diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand worked by a diamond-encrusted aesthetician. In addition to reducing fine lines, the package further pampers pores with a vitamin-and-oxygen-infusing mask. A relaxing neck and shoulder massage rounds out the package while hands are treated with products to repel Father Time and his wrinkle spells.

Andrea, the director at Serenity On St. Paul Day Spa, enjoys making people feel good by helping them look their best. She leads a team of aestheticians and therapists who offer facials, massages, waxing, and nail care. She often has them combine their services into spa packages, which invite guests to spend a few hours within the spa's luxurious confines as they enjoy skin treatments and massages with a side of decadent treats, such as champagne, chocolate truffles, or air that was once breathed by a Broncos player.
The experienced technicians at My Tyme Nails use facial-quality lotions and balms when pampering hands and feet. To boot, they offer no-chip gelish polishes that stay shiny and bright for as long as it takes a snake to eat one candy bar: 21 days. The salon's paraffin dips restore moisture to parched skin, while its acrylic tips add length and scratching power to natural nails. The stylists on staff also offer haircuts and eyebrow grooming to complement the salon's artful mani-pedis.
