The team at Pure Bliss Salon Spa specializes in making their clients look and feel really, really good. Hair stylists cut and color locks, but also fortify them with deep-conditioning treatments and hair masques. Skin specialists can wax away hair, cleanse and soften skin, or open pores with warm-towel wraps so good vibes can get in. And some services are just for fun?nail artists paint tiny designs to celebrate the holidays or the growth of a new finger.
Pay a visit to a full-service salon such as Profiles Hair and Nail Studio, and vent your stress directly through the ducts on your fingers and toes. At Profiles, visitors can have a wide range of digits pampered, limited only by the number of phalanges they possess. With a complete manicure and pedicure ($60), the gracefulness of every hand or foot motion will be enhanced, from scratching chalkboards to poking holes in paper walls and using toenails to pry the tops off cans of sauerkraut. Using OPI and Essie polishes, one of Profile’s trio of experienced and friendly nail stylists will attend to your 10 palm fronds for half an hour, then commence a 60-minute pedicure that includes an organic-coconut-oil-fueled knee-high leg massage, leaving you cleaner than a freshly scrubbed bar of soap and trimmed more neatly than a doorframe.

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.
Michelle Williams at Head 2 Toe has dressed up fingers and toes for nearly three decades. The seasoned nail technician pampers clients with skin-softening hand- and foot-masks and hot-towel treatments, before touching up nails with monochromatic color, nail art, or french polish. She also waxes unwanted hair and freshens visages with relaxing facials. Outfitted with comfortable massage chairs, her spa makes an ideal oasis after a long day of work or haunting houses.
