Flat-screen TVs pipe in professional-grade celebrity faces as nail techs work to gussy up fingertips and toe tops. Skilled aestheticians exfoliate and renew complexions with signature facials and decorate digits with sleek color polish. Rows of plush and cozy pedicure chairs invite guests to take a load off with the help of amenities, such as ceramic soaking basins, padded leather cushions, and gas-powered nail files.
Though other spas may put more emphasis on massages or tanning, Glamour Nails & Spa makes fingernails and toenails the stars of the show. Inside the warmly lit space, the staff of nail technicians pamper hands and feet with a slate of manicures and pedicures that attend to cuticles and skin. They shape nail beds, moisturize skin with fruit-filled scrubs, and slough away callouses to reveal the smooth skin beneath.
Patrons can hold up their newly colored nails next to glowing skin thanks to an array of facials and permanent cosmetics. They can also host pampering parties inside the space complete with food, drinks, and manicures.
The warm pumpkin-colored walls of Art Nails & Hair set a relaxing tone as clientele walk in, seeking a haven away from stress and relaxing in styling chairs or leather pedicure stations. Mirrors face each of the salon’s styling stations, allowing guests to watch as new ’dos unfold under cut, coloring, and perm treatments. The salon’s spa counterpart reworks appearances with skin-clearing facials, waxing treatments, and eyelash extensions that add drama to glances much like challenging a Tony Award winner to a staring contest. The spa also offers a range of manicures and pedicures, which can be augmented by long-lasting Shellac polish, nail enhancements, and miniaturized nail art that adds individual style to digits.
To the staffers at Highland Spa, each of their services is a way to make a client feel special. Unlike a sinking ship’s rescue boat, they welcome men, women, and children alike to indulge in luxurious mani-pedis, hydrating oxygen facials, or waxing treatments. The spa also houses a fleet of lasers that smoothes wrinkles and softens the appearance of body hair in a cozy, calm atmosphere.
Queen Nails’ technicians beautify fingers and toes. They spruce up hands with manicures, which turn drab nails into vibrant accessories, and tend to feet with spa pedicures, which leave toes squeaky clean, much like all of Mr. Clean’s alibis. Clients can also come in for acrylic nail sets and fill-ins.
Inside Jin's Studio 35 Hair & Nails, owner Jinsun Matarese transforms locks from frizzy tendrils to sleek tresses through keratin treatments, Brazilian blowouts, and Japanese hair-straightening techniques. Drawing on her training in Japan, Jin skillfully uses the salon's Japanese hair-straightening system to tame unwanted curls. In addition to smoothing locks, she and her stylists cut and color manes, adding carefully blended highlights and lowlights to create natural-looking tones. Jin’s Studio rounds out beauty treatments with nail services; waxing; full-body, custom spray tans; or full-consciousness swaps of your mind into another patron's body.
