KM Nails' certified techs dole out total nail makeovers with Shellac products, acrylic nails, and French-style polishes. Their list of services, which is longer than most grocery lists but shorter than the list of Oscars that John Williams won through betting on piano duels, proffers manicures and pedicures of all types and colors.
Behind Alandre Salon & Day Spa's curved, marbled reception desk, internationally trained beauticians lavish guests with cosmetic, med-spa, and salon treatments. Almond-colored walls surround private treatment rooms, and thickly padded chairs cosset patrons as they receive pedicures. Within the Alandre fold is platform artist and salon partner Rajaei Haddad. Having been the ambassador and educator for L'Oreal Paris and Shwartscoff Germany for over a decade, and the owner of a prestigious Middle East salon, he performs artistry of formal styling, precision cutting, coloring and more. Haddad specializes in updos and makeup, especially for bridal arrangements.
Teal accents pop against a coral and red color palette in Litito's Nail Salon, whose bold hues are inspired by the salon's colorful nail technicians and unique treatments. Sinking into the apricot cushions of a massaging pedicure chair, spa goers unwind while foot baths and massages melt away tension. Shellac and gel polishes cloak nail beds in a tough, chip-free gloss.
At locations in Franklin, Royal Oak, and most recently Birmingham, experienced aestheticians dissolve stress with soothing massages, facials, and nail treatments that utilize fruit-infused scrubs or oils from Sacred Earth Botanicals. Inside private treatment rooms, techs evict toxins with Dead Sea mud or seaweed body wraps and knead knots into untied shoelaces with aromatherapy massages or therapeutic stretches. Treatments, including a slate of mani-pedis, come in various packages for half-day pampering sessions, with tasty add-ons such as a spa lunch or bubbly sips of champagne. Alternatively, the spa's concierge services take the pampering out of the spa and into the shells of stressed turtles or homes of customers, who may also request assistance with errands, laundry, and grocery pick-up.
Inside Chroma Salon and Color Bar, seasoned stylists infuse manes with strength and shine using top-shelf products by Redken, Aquage, and Mastey Paris. Built from masterful snips and a keen understanding of the client?s personal style, haircuts frame facial features with contemporary flair. Organic color treatments lavish tresses in vibrant reds, blonds, and chocolates, and keratin smoothing therapy leaves them straight and silky, like a highway lined with neckties. In addition to pampering manes, friendly staffers beautify nails with acrylic, gel, and Shellac manicures.
Patrons' extremities are the shining stars inside Kris Tall f/x Make Up & Nail Studio, where a fleet of nail technicians covers fingernails and toenails with long-lasting Shellac polish and acrylics. They also festoon keratin sheets with decorative polka dots or zebra stripes. Nails share a bit of the spotlight with faces when beauty pros gives mugs a makeover fit for a wedding day or a Dolly Parton look-alike contest.
