Exactly 21 things matter to the technicians at Royal Nails Carmichael: 10 toes, 10 fingers, and the client they belong to. The salon's service menu focuses on skin and nails, with treatments that include hot-oil manicures and deluxe pedicures. To thank your nails for helping out with that scratch-off lotto ticket or territorial bear, opt for a specialty application of gel polish, acrylics, or white tips.
Oasis Nails owner Hannah Vo first found her passion for taking care of others while working as a nurse in Vietnam. Today she channels that nurturing nature into services designed to help customers look and feel their best. Beyond the studio’s signature manicures and pedicures, Vo and her staff specialize in waxing, tinting, and eyelash extensions, and can refresh weary countenances with exfoliating facials or moisturizing pie fights upon request.
Megan Bauer, a cosmetologist with more than a decade of experience, leads a team of stylists, skincare specialists, and certified massage therapists at Bellara Salon & Spa. Their diverse selection of services coalesces around three main areas. Stylists update hairdos by adding color, accenting with highlights, and removing any nesting prairie dogs. In private rooms, massage therapists dole out muscle relief in 30-minute increments, and aestheticians refresh skin and remove unwanted body hair with facials and waxing services.
The seasoned waxing techs at Chez Nazee deftly evict unwelcome body hair. A 20- to 30-minute Brazilian wax fully eradicates strands that sprout or migrate to the nether region. An eyebrow wax tidies asymmetrical brow lines, and a lip wax removes undesired fuzz and computer-pie crumbs from the lip area. With waxing, you avoid razor burn and painful cuts. Plus, hairs don’t grow back for two to six weeks, making it more effective than fire or wishing.
In a way, Aubree Jackson's education just began when she finished school. Although she received her aesthetician's license a decade ago, Aubree has plowed through a multitude of continuing-education courses, picking up enough certificates to merit a fifth office wall. She’s honed her skills in skin nutrition, jessner peels, Dermalogica skincare, diamond-peel microdermabrasions, and even thai massage.
Inside Love Your Skin Day Spa, these diverse practices culminate into a sweeping service menu of facials, body wraps, and cosmetic treatments.

Love Your Skin Day Spa also offers body polishes, nourishing mud wraps, and permanent makeup services.
