All-natural products line the shelves at each of Rituals Salon's two locations. Created by Aveda, these hair serums forgo unpronounceable ingredients for plant oils and nonpetroleum-based minerals, all for the good of the both the consumer and the environment. The salon owners follow Aveda's lead at Rituals, where they invite clients to stop in for chemical-free highlights and chic haircuts performed by Aveda-trained stylists. After the stylists show off their talents, makeup artists step in to dress up eyes and lips and teach novice cosmetics users that eye shadow is to be swept across the eyelid, not across the retina.
T&D Nails & Spa's attentive staff of technicians calls upon years of experience every time a staffer brushes a vibrant coat of polish across nails or swipes away a strip of unwanted hair. Deluxe manicures and pedicures lavish extremities with skin-smoothing masks, paraffin waxes, and sugar scrubs that gently peel away dead cells and expired candy bracelets. The team can also beautify nails with soak-off Gelish and pink-and-white manicures. Their expertise extends to the full body with waxing treatments that swiftly remove hair from the face, limbs, and bikini area.
Pandora Salons oversees a staff of stylists and aestheticians fulfilling their beauty-vocation callings. The salon boasts several independent workspaces where her brood of beauty-school hatchlings builds a loyal client base while personalizing their own roster of treatments. Through services such as hair coloring and UV-cured Shellac manicures, budding young beauticians gussy up and de-stress clients at their own stations that are each decked out in customized decor to reflect their unique personalities or a crippling fear of Barbicide.
After more than 30 years of business, Tonya's Nail Salon has become an area favorite—not only for its nail services, but also for its complimentary glasses of wine and cups of coffee from the beverage bar. While guests relax, the seasoned staff trims fingernails and toenails, gently grooms cuticles, and swipes nails in layers of vibrant OPI polish.
At this beauty lounge specializing in clinical skincare, technicians each have their own ways of turning back the clock. Whether they're lifting away dull, dead skin cells with medical-grade chemical peels, encouraging new cell growth with Jet Peels, or slimming away inches with FIT body wraps, the professional beautifiers leave clients looking younger and healthier without the need for invasive procedures. They also help clients relax with stress-relieving massages.
In addition to their skin and body specialties, Azul Nails Waxing Beauty also treats hands and feet to professional nail care services. During every manicure and pedicure, staffers fill enamel pedicure bowls with fresh water instead of using whirlpool footbath; use all-natural hand and foot scrubs made onsite daily with fruits, veggies, and essential oils; and shape nails with new, disposable files, buffers, and other mani-pedi instruments. Manicures are enhanced with soothing options such as hot-milk and almond softening soaks, honey-butter cream, and organic bamboo scrubs.
As an advanced nail technician, Natalia does more than just trim, file, and polish nails. She can completely revitalize fingers and toes with a variety of services and European-style enhancements. Sculptured acrylic extensions, for example, add dramatic length while maintaining a natural look. Natalia's nail art, meanwhile, allows visitors to personalize their nails with Swarovski crystals, 3D designs, or miniature portraits of former Secretaries of Education. Of course, Natalia also performs classic mani-pedi treatments, although she places nearly as much emphasis on comfort as creativity, treating hands and feet to herbal baths, hot towel applications, and gentle foot and leg massages.
