Natural light streams in through the salon's large front windows, casting a warm glow on the salon's earth-toned walls and black-and-white nature photography. Amid these cozy accents, skilled stylists Nina, Mollie, and Nicole cut multidimensional layers and rewire hair circuit boards with high-end Tressa products. Clients can also stop into the salon for an OPI gel manicure, or a waxing session to remove unwanted hair from the upper lip.

If a true friend can complete your sentences, then it stands to reason that a true artist can complete your creative visions. This is the case for Lori Stoneman, a nail technician who specializes in hand-painted nail designs. “Most of my clients let me use my imagination,” said Stoneman. “They come in with a little something in mind and walk out with something spectacular.”
In addition to embellishing nails with seasonally appropriate designs such as autumn trees and winter three-car pileups, Stoneman lengthens natural nails with acrylics and moisturizes skin with paraffin. After a seven-step deluxe mani-pedi, “you will feel calm and refreshed,” according to Stoneman.
A cozy salon in the heart of Madison, Norma’s Hair Styling caters to all things beauty related with space for haircuts, mani-pedis, and waxing. Men, women, and children can settle into one of the salon’s six styling chairs for a chic haircut, deep-conditioning treatment, or foil highlights sponsored by John Amico Italian hair color. Overgrown cuticles and hangnails meet their demise in the mani-pedi corner, where skilled technicians buff and shape nails as meticulously as a ship captain buffs his glass eye every night. A layer of colorful OPI polish or chip-resistant gel—the latter of which lasts for up to two weeks without chipping—leaves nails glimmering and clients feeling confident enough to high-five themselves in public.
