After gaining experience at several advanced training academies and prestigious salons, Donaylle Nicole channeled her ample styling skills into her own salon. At Donaylle Nicole Hair Studio, she leads a team that includes experienced stylists, aestheticians, and a facial specialist from the Bengston Institute. They employ Redken, Pureology, and ammonia-free hair products in their beautifying regimens. As the stylists perform precision haircuts and coloring services, aestheticians pamper other clients from head to toe with body wraps, pedicures, and professional makeup services with Mirabella products or colorful lacquers. To help spice up birthday and bachelorette parties, they also offer custom spa parties that can include massages, facials, and waxes.
The studio itself reflects the staff’s passion for aesthetic beauty. Exposed off-white brick walls attempt to hide behind diamond-shaped mirrors and flowing brown curtains. Rustic hardwood flooring evokes the deck of a pirate ship—only in the salon, the hair that falls onto it smells pleasant.

Additionally, treatments can soothe acne-prone skin, reducing redness and speeding up blemishes' healing time.

Though not covered by this Groupon, Midnite Sun & Cruise's helpful staff is happy to suggest additional in-store serums to amplify results.

Even for people who originally loved their body art, tattoos can lose their luster; after a few years, treasured ink can turn into an unwanted reminder of the past. Grand Haven Laser solves the problem by fading unwanted tattoos with quick laser pulses. Those pulses beam into the skin, breaking down inks so the body can naturally flush them away. Clients can opt for just enough appointments to fade a tattoo so that it can be covered up by more ink, or they can go for full removal.
