At Shawntay's Creative Nail Boutique, Shawntway Johnson brings more than 15 years of experience as a licensed nail technician to pamper clients with creative nail designs, all within a relaxing spa environment. Over the years, she's trained with OPI, Creative Nail Design, and Ardell, learning how to professionally style nails, apply eyelash extensions, and even make frogs handsome without having to kiss them. Spa packages treat clients to long-lasting Shellac mani-pedis and flat-iron hair-straightening treatments over glasses of champagne.
Guests pull up a plush leather chair to the counter at The Nail Bar at Salontra, where technicians tend to hands beneath the glow of dangling purple lights. Long-lasting Zoya natural polishes coat digits in bright hues as clients take in the nail bar's vivid turquoise walls and colorful portraits. Nestled inside Salontra Select Suites, The Nail Bar is one of many independently owned salons situated at one location.
Salon owner and NIC nail technician Katinna Hill never considers her job to be done. She enjoys watching her clients leave Pampered & Polished beaming with pride while toting gleaming nails, but she also continues to fine-tune her techniques through educational classes and workshops. Though trained by Young Nails, OPI, and Creative Nail Design at times throughout her more than 20-year career, Katinna still seeks out the latest industry trends and the legendary nail guide penned by Mona Lisa's beautician.
Couture Hair Expressions' stylists view their services not just as hair treatments, but also as clients' investments in their inner and outer beauty. The stylists encourage holistic beauty and believe that improvement of overall health can help a person look and feel their best. Each appointment, whether it's for a blowout or conditioning treatment, a simple cut or a full cut, color, and style package, they work with clients to ensure they know what to expect during the process, and how to care for their look after leaving the salon. Staff aestheticians beautify clients' skin in a similar fashion using the ilike organic skin care line from szép élet which is created from organically grown and handpicked herbs. They offer post-treatment techniques to extend their effects, such as suggesting particular creams to reduce acne and avoiding naps in garden ponds to escape that pruney skin look.
Sapphire Nails and Tanning Salon's seasoned technicians revamp skin and nails with a finesse that has yielded a steady stream of loyal clients for more than 18 years. Staffers gussy up nails with intricate polish designs and acrylic sets, bolstering manicures and pedicures with aromatic scrubs that smell of pomegranate, papaya, and high fives. Facials and massages help rejuvenate weary muscles and complexions, and a fleet of tanning beds cocoon color seekers in low- to high-intensity UV rays. Sunlight pours into the salon's serene environs through a full wall of windows, illuminating cushy pedicure thrones, royal-blue rolling chairs, and a flat-screen TV.
An Aveda-concept salon, Visual Changes caters to guests' individual needs by providing personalized pampering experiences. The style-boosting Aveda hair spa treatment, which includes a blowdry and style, will keep your follicles feeling loved and your loved ones feeling your follicles until you feel justified charging them a petting fee. The Caribbean therapy manicure pampers skin cells and nerve endings and the special occasion makeup application decorates newly brightened mugs with botanically based pigments, giving faces a cheerful change from clown paint.
