Flower murals and rose-colored walls draw guests into The Pink Nail & Spa like honeybees into a garden; cushy leather seats await them, as inviting as lush flowers. Guests plop comfortably into the chairs during manicures, pedicures, and waxing services. Creative Spa manicures and pedicures condition skin with elixirs infused with citrus oils, antioxidants, and vitamin E. Nail technicians also pamper the hands and feet with relaxing soaks and moisturizing treatments. During regular spa mani-pedis, the techs knead palms and soles and slough off expired skin with gentle exfoliation tools. Clients can also opt to pamper their whole bodies with more than a half-dozen types of massage therapy, including Swedish and deep-tissue treatments that melt pain, tension, and subcutaneous cheddar wheels.

Six stylists and a pair of nail techs make up the team at Sandra Araceli Salon, a haven of primping and pampering nestled in a mini-mall. Their haircuts, color treatments, and perms each begin with a thorough consultation to discuss expectations and taste, then finish with a rundown of styling tips that help you maintain your new look at home. They also carry DreamCatchers extensions, which are made of real human hair and can be used to add realistic length to limp locks or show dogs' coats.
