Pedicure in East Cleveland

Candles flicker inside the marble fireplace, sending droplets of light into the colonial revival–style home, built in the 1920s, that houses Quintana’s Barber & Dream Spa. Hardwood floors and tan leather seating compose a warm color palette, and WiFi—installed by the ghost of the original architect—keeps busy guests connected. After appointment reminders land in their email inboxes, clients step into the earth-toned sanctuary for services ranging from basic mani-pedis and beard trims to all-day spa excursions. Guests pluck from a menu of massages, facials, waxing, and haircare, and such treatments are combined in packages for individuals and couples.

Quintana's soothing sanctuary doesn't just speak for itself. Patrons banded together to vote the salon into CityVoter's top five for Best Barber in 2009 and Best Manicure and Pedicure in 2009 and 2010. The spa's acclaim page also spotlights press recognition of Friendliest Staff, Best-Looking Storefront, and Most Helpful Combs.

Under the helm of skilled nail technician and owner Regina Kinsey, Polished Nail Salon’s staff grooms hands and feet with manicures and pedicures for women and men alike. Throughout the day, the salon’s experienced crew bustles about the space artfully positioning sculpted glass nails atop existing keratin beds and performing waterless manicures that gussy up hands without the hassles of coaxing each finger into a life jacket.

Tell us about your business.

My name is Marsha T. Pipher and for the past 17 years, I have been a professional managing manicurist in prestigious spas around Northeastern Ohio. With my past experience, I was motivated and delighted to establish my own nail spa, Spa Parfairé, which means 'to perfect' or 'to complete' in French. My clients tell me that I am a perfectionist when I am servicing them, so I decided to showcase that behavior by creating a spa that will enhance their beauty by using "crème de la crème" products and techniques. I enjoy servicing my clients because I learn and become inspired by them everyday. I love what I do, not just because of its flexibility, but [because] it gives me a sense of taking care of someone and teaching them how to feel better about themselves. I believe in using excellent, top-notch, and natural products such as OPI, CND, Essie, SpaRitual, Phytocéane, Fléurs, Aveda, and Crabtree & Evelyn.

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?

My signature service would be my spa pedicures. [I perform] the signature pedicure by [submerging] the client's feet...into a warm aromatic bath. [I then] shape toenails, remove loose cuticles, soften calluses, and exfoliate away dry skin. [I rehydrate]...skin, [give a] soothing calf and foot massage, and [apply] warm booties to penetrate emollients into their skin. [I] finish with their choice of OPI, Essie, or SpaRitual nail lacquer.

What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?

I like catering to my clients by making them feel comfortable during their service time. I believe in having a quiet, serene setting. I stimulate their five senses by playing relaxing music; having warm, soothing touches; aromatherapy scents; a healthy beverage of their choice; and creating a calm and beautiful atmosphere for them to view. I also try to remember interesting and unusual facts about my clients—lifestyle, career, personal life, hobbies—in order to make their service more enjoyable and personable.

When it comes to hair, Cherise Smith has seen it all. Armed with a certification in Cosmetology Management and a slew of Design Essentials products, she goes to work relaxing hair, restoring vitality to overworked and chemically treated hair, or sculpting statement hair-dos designed to grab attention. The crown jewel of the service menu, though, may be hair weaving. Drawing on more than a decade of experience, she seamlessly works strands into the existing hair to create luxurious, flowing tresses.
