The deluxe manicure and pedicure at Nail Talk and Tan builds on basic grooming (cuticle and nail shaping, light massage, and a fresh coat of shiny polish), adding extra muscle manipulation, aromatic exfoliation, and sea-salt scrub to the mix. During the treatment, a skilled nail technician will help you slaughter stress by masterfully massaging your head, temples, neck, shoulders, legs, and feet. Sea-salt and sugar scrubs leave skin smooth and moisturized and set expired skin cells free to float around in the air. The pedicure includes a luxurious cooling mask with hot towels to soothe aches and pains.
The staffers at iNails Salon and Spa send bodies into states of relation with an array of nail, facial, and massage services. Experienced nail technicians pamper all 20 digits with 14 Botanical Escapes Herbal Spa treatments that blanket skin surfaces with a bouquet of natural ingredients. Guests submit finger or toe tips to soak in a bath bubbling with oils smelling of soothing cocoa or rejuvenating peppermint, preventing patrons from having to waste secret stashes of Junior Mints on DIY footbaths. SaniSmart spa jets bubble around ankles as techs pluck sanitized tools from a hospital-grade autoclave to scrub skin and prune everything in the vicinity of the nail. A choice of lacquer or nail-strengthening treatment caps each nail service. The salon also offers specialty manicures and pedicures aimed at relieving congestion, detoxifying, or rejuvenating clients, and tends to the body's other relaxation points with massages and facials that employ Dermalogica products.
Trained in advanced precision cutting and coloring at Vidal Sassoon Academy, Zahra Negin has spent more than two decades as a stylist, including managing a top salon in Los Angeles. However, in addition to this experience, an equally important credential is her own hair—a mane of dynamic, natural-looking blond. At her eponymous salon, she specializes in color and cuts for blonds, although she and her team can also style hair of other hues with chic cuts, custom highlights, and keratin-straightening treatments. The team also customizes hair to clients' lifestyles, aesthetics, and collections of tiny hats by offering comprehensive consultations, before styling, shampooing, and conditioning hair with products by brands such as Kérastase and Moroccanoil. For an additional customer-friendly touch, the salon offers complimentary extras, such as shampoos with neck massages.
A fixture on the Georgia State Board of Cosmetology for 10 years, Flash Nail Spa’s owner, Nancy, employs more than 30 years of experience to turn bedraggled appendages into polished masterworks. During the mani-pedi, a tech trims nails before buffing and filing them down and forcing unruly cuticles back to their secret lair, where they’ll fastidiously plan their revenge. Clients scan color-saturated rows of polish for a final coat, leaving hands and feet with a factory-fresh look.

“Remember, it begins with your eyebrows and ends with your feet,” reads a quote on Alicia's Arch Complete's Facebook page.
