The Hair & Nail Gallery offers just that: beauty services for your hair and nails, as well as a boutique with products for at-home care. You can kick back in a comfy chair and let technicians dote over your hands and feet with pink-and-white mani-pedis or gel manicures. Hairstylists cut, color, and style locks, adding freshness to an expired 'do. The Hair & Nail Gallery also offers products for purchase for everything else from your head to your toes, such as sugar scrub and body oil.
At Pamper Yourself, a choice of seven massage types makes it easy to do just that. Need to unwind? Try the long, gliding strokes of the Swedish or hot-stone modalities. Have an athletic injury? A sports massage soothes those overworked muscles. These massages can be combined with other services—including facials, seaweed body wraps, and mani-pedis—for a few hours of luxury.
Clients lounge in comfy leather chairs as she attends to digits, precisely painting on bold colors and multihued designs in the form of flowers or portraits of Lyndon B. Johnson. With a concentration on comfort, Starr has decked out her homey space with plants and a TV.
Danielle Smith opened Tranquil Nail Studio in 2012, combining the rustic Southern charm of her decor with the modern amenities of her custom built work station. Beneath the warm glow of a delicate chandelier, she works at filing, sculpting, and coloring nails, finishing them with coats of Shellac polish that, like bad graduation speeches, seem to last about two weeks. At her pedicure station, she scrubs exfoliates feet without relying on a jet spa, which can become unsanitary thanks to trapped bacteria. Beyond treating extremities, she also runs a small boutique full of thoughtful gifts, including hand decorated bracelets and CND lotions.
Though they often whisk together bowls of liquid chocolate, scented jellies, and fresh lime juice, these professionals don't make desserts. They're nail techs, and they use such sweet ingredients to more effectively pamper appendages during manicures and pedicures at Harmony Nail Spa. For instance, during a jelly pedi, a foot soak made of light, fluffy jelly retains its heat longer than its watery counterparts, extending the soothing effect of the essential oils and aloe vera extracts contained within. Staff members also soothe bodies with hot- or cold-stone massages and smooth skin with waxing services.
