There are many nail salons that a customer can visit. There are few salons, however, that visit customers. As Nails 2 GoGo?s name suggests, its fully trained, licensed, and insured technicians can perform pampering services on the road or at their new and larger Tucson shop. The team touches up hands and feet with luxurious manicure and pedicure treatments. Cuticle artisans render simple, understated treatments, such as simple polish and exfoliating scrubs, or applications of color and shiny Shellac coats, which are the kind of coats movie stars wear on the red carpet. Along with soothing hot-towel wraps and extensive six-week bridal manicures, technicians soothe muscles with detoxifying foot-reflexology treatments and regenerate skin with cleansing facials.
Now open Sundays, Nails 2 GoGo keeps everyone's nails looking sharp for all occasions, from daily wear to wedding day glam.
Owner Marilynn Reis and her team of Aveda-trained stylists harness Aquage products and tone-perfecting Pravana ChromaSilk hair color to transform hairstyles. Clients nestle into leather chairs for consultations before enjoying cleansing and massage. Coloring services douse hair in solid or partial hues and can help customers beam like the sun rising over a field of slumbering chameleons. Off the salon floor, aestheticians and nail technicians dutifully perform spa services using top-notch products from GlyMed Plus and Bronze Biologic.
Upholding the salon’s commitment to the latest in hair-cutting techniques, every stylist at Metropolis Salon undergoes extensive training and continuous education. Owner and accomplished stylist Emery Alain Nicoletti helms the salon’s in-house training program, teaching students the ins and out of salon work—from cut and color skills to the consequences of mistaking Barbasol for Gatorade. After up to two years in the program, pupils fly solo behind the styling chair to snip strands into chic cuts or enhance hair with highlights. Though hair styling is its foundation, Metropolis Salon also caters to skin and nail needs with a dozen facial treatments, waxing for face and body, and indulgent mani-pedis for both men and women.
If you've watched the Emmy Awards recently, you've seen the work of stylist Jason Ashkenazi, who can take credit for more than a few of that ceremony's celebrity 'dos. But long before Jason ever got close to famous tresses, he practiced his craft for years in New York and Los Angeles. Today, he continues to lend his talents to fashion events, editorial photo shoots, and secret Illuminati meetings attended by Hollywood's biggest stars.
All of the independent contractors at Feisty Studios Salon & Spa arm themselves with Schwarzkopf, ISO, and Affinage products when creating new hairstyles. They cut the locks of men, women, and children, and twist strands into updos for special events and weddings.

Spa NiVa pampers and beautifies every part of the body with a full service menu that incorporates treatments for skin care, massage, nails, and waxing. Using medical-grade skin care products, skin specialists clear pores and banish impurities with facials, peels, and dermaplaning, a treatment that scrapes away dead skin cells and peach fuzz with a surgical blade. Waxing treatments smoothen skin by removing hair with warm wax and microscopic landscapers who pull weeds from the roots. Nail technicians decorate fingers and toes with shellac polish or soften skin by dipping appendages into paraffin wax. Meanwhile, licensed massage therapists use kneading techniques and various degrees of pressure to alleviate stress, stiffness, and secretly being an invertebrate double agent.
