Open seven days a week, King Nails staffs a squad of experienced nail nurturers to keep finger and toe shields shapely and shiny. During the rose exfoliation pedicure, a comforting chair massage targets tense muscles while the salon’s friendly phalangists clean, trim, and buff calcium-rich toe tips. Rose-exfoliation gel rids dermises of skin cells that have died, dried out, or stopped trying, and healing lavender warm-sensation lotion adds another comforting tactile touch. An application of your choice of polish leaves your piggies ready for open-toed sandals and invisible work boots. The salt and sugar glow manicure beautifies finger shingles with artful scrubbing, snipping, and shaping, after which a generous helping of salt or sugar glow scrub is applied to hands to repair dryness and refresh skin. Like the pedicure, both manicures include your choice of polish, allowing you to dress your extremities like twins or decorate them differently so you can tell them apart.
Within every Salon Loft location resides a coterie of talented tendril-tamers, each stylist providing different services, styles, and prices. At the Carrollwood location, participating stylists perform stylized women's haircuts ($48), demineralizing treatments ($20), and 16th-century French librettos. Tyrone Square's Salon Loft features follicular artisans who provide women's ($50) and men's ($40) haircuts tailored to each client's special brand of thought-holder. Peruse the stylists' specialties and prices online and then book an appointment without ever touching a phone, carrier pigeon, or minivan-mounted megaphone.
At this beauty lounge specializing in clinical skincare, technicians each have their own ways of turning back the clock. Whether they're lifting away dull, dead skin cells with medical-grade chemical peels, encouraging new cell growth with Jet Peels, or slimming away inches with FIT body wraps, the professional beautifiers leave clients looking younger and healthier without the need for invasive procedures. They also help clients relax with stress-relieving massages.
In addition to their skin and body specialties, Azul Nails Waxing Beauty also treats hands and feet to professional nail care services. During every manicure and pedicure, staffers fill enamel pedicure bowls with fresh water instead of using whirlpool footbath; use all-natural hand and foot scrubs made onsite daily with fruits, veggies, and essential oils; and shape nails with new, disposable files, buffers, and other mani-pedi instruments. Manicures are enhanced with soothing options such as hot-milk and almond softening soaks, honey-butter cream, and organic bamboo scrubs.
Reds, yellows, purples, and every color in between. Some are glittery, others metallic. Some have names such as Berry Kiss and Midnight Hour, while others are simply called Crimson. The bottles stand in a line like colorful soldiers, waiting to be plucked from their shelf and painted onto fingernails and toenails. The kaleidoscope of polish options makes every day different for 15-year nailcare veteran Dawn, who provides custom nail services to fit each client's personality and tastes. She also expertly applies acrylic nails and offers Shellac polish for those prone to chipping their nails in their house made of diamonds.
