A towering shelf of styling products waits inside Anointed Hands House of Beauty & Nails. With those items and a pair of scissors, one of the stylists can snip and design looks to suit each client's personality and lifestyle. Away from the salon chairs, aestheticians sculpt nails and coat them in polish. The business also celebrates different days of the week such as Friendly Fridays, which encourage friends to get shampoos side by side.
After leaving Brows 2 Lashes, customers sport a wardrobe of different designs on their nails, including zebra stripes, polka dots, and Hello Kitty faces. Stylists thread and wax eyebrows, shaping hairs into soft and curving lines and applying eyebrow extensions. Mani-pedis re-envision nails in dozens of vibrant colors and designs, including pastels for Easter and binary code for Bill Gates’ birthday.

the growth of natural nails
Born and raised in Birmingham, Bonnie now pretties up her hometown one fingernail at a time. She trained at Linda's School of Beauty before refining her skills over the next 14 years as a manicurist. During that time, she came to appreciate how much using a quality product can help make her treatments stand out; that's why she employs brands such as OPI, Creative Nail Design, and Qtica. She particularly recommends shellac gels for busy women, as the colorful gel polish dries quickly, lasts up to 14 days, and won't chip.
The aestheticians at Pamp-A-Roma give hands and feet the star treatment. They trim and buff nails during mani-pedis, before applying standard OPI polishes, glazes, or chip-resistant Shellac. They administer some out-of-the-ordinary treatments as well, such as a jelly pedicure. During this service, feet and toes dip into a pool of gelatin that warms muscles. Additionally, Pamp-A-Roma's team isn't confined to a single location. They travel to homes for spa parties and treat birthday girls and guests to spa services such as mani-pedis.
The Hair Dashery has dutifully kept all types of hair in line for more than 30 years with a deluxe menu of styling services. Its skilled stylists can craft voluminous layers, sew in weaves, or straighten strands with relaxers. The salon also provides services for those experiencing hair loss, using the American Cancer Society–certified hair-loss specialist it has on hand. Clients may also solicit an aesthetician for a makeup application, lash extensions, or a durable coat of Shellac nail polish.
