The walls are lavender. The doors are lavender. The smell might even be lavender. But here's the thing—Lavenders Nail & Tanning Studio is serious about the entire spectrum of colors, from bronzed skin tones to kaleidoscopically vivid nail polishes. Eight tanning beds install fresh-from-the-space-station glows with UV-light systems, while airbrush artists coat clients form head-to-toe without harsh aftereffects. Optional red-light therapy beds stimulate collagen to keep skin youthful by diminishing sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and other blemishes. Nearby, nail techs can coat nails in solid colors, polka-dot patterns, or collages that feature glitter and decals. However classic or daring clients want their nails to look, the savvy staff at Lavenders listens closely and delivers artful results.

Waxing expert and aesthetician Cara Futch knows how to make waxing sessions more comfortable, and not simply by advising clients to skip caffeine and take some ibuprofen before coming in. As the hair-removal guru of The Lucky Waxing Company, she fully educates clients on the process and chats with them a bit to help set them at ease, stating, "I’m told I'm like therapy, only cheaper!" Add-ons to waxes can also help lighten the mood—dye, glitter, and small jewels can add a little dazzle to brazilian and bikini waxes, and ear-candling, while having nothing to do with hair removal, can suck out excess earwax and improve overall health. Futch is joined by a spray tanning specialist and a stylist/nail technician who both perform non-wax-related services.
