For some salons, nail treatments are an also-ran on the service menu. Not so at BC Nails. The staff dedicates all of their attention to glamorizing hands, feet, and that one nail that covers belly buttons. When they're not busy performing basic mani-pedis, BC Nails' techs pour their expertise into attaching acrylics, creating nail art, and pampering hands and feet with a host of spa-like add-ons, including their Zenspa mint mask and paraffin treatments. They back each of these services with polishes from reputable brands including OPI, CND, and China Glaze.

The Ibrow Studio’s owner and senior aesthetician, Nicole Willis, has been honing her techniques since 1999, and has grown so proficient that she shares them in workshops at the studio and on KSBI’s All About You. Willis’s specialty lies in the artful clearing and shaping of body hair using the NuFree soy hair-removal system. Although the substance resembles wax, it remains at a comfortable 98.6 degrees and fights bacteria as Willis smoothes it on to shape elegant eyebrows or tidy the bikini line. Her nimble hands further enhance eyes with Reese Robert eyelash extensions, and her expertise with makeup contouring and seamlessly integrating tiny gargoyles into evening looks reflect her interest in enhancing facial architecture overall. A skin analysis helps the team tailor facials to each skin type, and complimentary aromatherapy turns body scrubs and wraps into multisensory indulgence.
