Unless you're an identical twin or really good with papier-mâché, your face is unlike that of anyone else. That's why Touch Nails Girl always tailors its facials to the unique tone, texture, and T-zone of each individual. But that's just a strand in the salon's ample coif. Clients also can solicit an aesthetician for a full-body scrub or durable acrylic nails, or retreat to a private room for hot-stone bodywork compliments of the salon's skilled massage therapist.
The licensed nail techs at London’s of New York Nail Bar pamper clients with cosmetic and therapeutic manicures, pedicures, and nail-strengthening treatments. During the basic manicure, nail shapes become symmetrical, excess cuticle is exiled, and nails tops change color at whim. The New York signature manicure and pedicure further pampers hands with soothing masks, invigorating exfoliants, and a deep moisturizer to recompense for extensive sandcastle building. Feet and legs detangle in a conditioning soak before extremity tenders smooth an external mask onto lower legs and perk up feet with an exfoliating scrub or a terrifying tale of 13-inch heels. Hardworking feet revel in a massage with perfumed deep-moisturizing cream in clients’ choice of honey-and-cinnamon, raspberry-pomegranate, silver-birch-green-tea, or lavender scents.

Pamper Me Salon & Spa's troupe of stylists and aestheticians bring an intuitive sense of color, shape, and texture to their beautifying work. A full bikini wax uproots unwanted bristle without razor burn or resulting stubble, creating a sleek swimsuit contour in time for beach season or No Pants Friday at the office. Those looking to maintain their face frames can groom and revivify locks with a cut and color. Head feathers are snipped and shaped, matched with a single-process color from root to tip, then styled and blown dry in their gorgeous new incarnation. All trimming and depilation is performed in a freshly renovated studio, bright and airy with pale tiling, wooden accents, and curtains woven from fairy dresses.
