A table of manicure stations sits directly opposite the row of padded pedicure chairs at Simply Nails by Lisa, establishing the salon’s almost singular commitment to reinvigorating spa services for the hands and feet. In addition to trimming nails and applying vibrant coats of polish, the staff members also pamper their clients with treatments such as towel wraps, hot-lotion massages, and exfoliating sea-salt scrubs. As the nail techs gussy up digits, the salon’s aestheticians cater to a variety of cosmetic concerns with facials designed to smoothen skin and waxing treatments that leave chosen body areas as hairless as a sasquatch who lost a bet.
The aestheticians at Young Image Spa rejuvenate skin with a menu that includes facials, peels, waxing, and nail services. Vitamin C facials tackle lackluster cells loitering on the skin's surface, and peels and microdermabrasion treatments go even deeper to even out wrinkles and age spots. Young Image Spa's staff also tend to appendages with mani-pedis that employ products from OPI, CND, and Gelish, ideal for digits prone to inciting thumb wars.
