Over the course of approximately 90 minutes, your opposable knuckle sticks will be equipped with shiny new finger helmets worthy of a Costanza hand model. Put your hands and feet where a member of the skilled and licensed staff can see them, and you'll be rewarded with a soak and neat trimming of fingernails and toenails. Perfectly symmetrical tips will take the place of formerly unruly edges. Cuticles will be gently groomed into a more sightly disposition. The skilled 'curists will massage your feet with their hands and your hands with their feet, leaving your handlebars and kickstands feeling buttery and spry. A deliberate polishing finishes up your transformation from hand and foot abandon to extreme extremity envy. The pedicure also includes a foot scrub and hot towel wrap, a perfect companion for relaxing in the comfortable, spa-like atmosphere. Call to schedule an appointment with the professional cuticle coaches.
Salon Bellissima's experienced stylists and nail technicians beautify clients through an extensive array of salon services, including haircuts and colors, mani-pedis, waxing, and other titivating treatments.

The staffers at Zoe Nails & Spa know that there’s more to beautiful nails than a slick layer of polish. That’s why their manicure and pedicure services also focus on improving the overall health of the hands and feet by softening skin, refining cuticles, and massaging surrounding muscles with the help of organic Nu Skin products. Nail technicians select the skincare line’s lotions, scrubs, and creams to suit their clients’ individual needs, using the natural healing powers of plants and oils to reduce cellulite, relieve pain, or soften heels rough from carpooling with the Flintstones. Once skin is properly cared for, staff members then turn their attention to the nails, getting each one groomed and polished before crowning their work with a choice of OPI or chip-free Shellac colors. The pampering doesn’t stop with grownups, either—kids are also invited to spend a day out with Mom while seated in one of the salon’s youthful character pedicure chairs.
Candy Smith is many things, but above all she's an artist. When someone enters Stevie and Company Hair Salon and sits down at her mani-pedi station, she soaks their nails, discusses possible designs, readies her polish bottles, and gets to work creating tiny masterpieces. Some people opt for solid colors or demure French tips, but others envision wilder adornments. And in those cases, nothing is off-limits. From her brushes Candy conjures seahorses, flags, and sports logos or blends contrasting acrylic powders to craft one-of-a-kind marble patterns mimicking ancient Greek manicures. One look at her nail art portfolio exposes work so imaginative, it ranges from full beach scenes replete with palm trees to three-dimensional flowers.

Staff might also turn to holistic methods with reiki, a Japanese method that combines traditional massage with energy-balancing techniques.
