Even after 20 years of industry experience, the seasoned nail techs at Tina Marie Salon & Boutique continue to hone their craft though continuing education and by soliciting client feedback. Through these channels, they keep a perfectly painted finger on the pulse of trending manicure and pedicure products, including OPI gel polishes that retain their sheen for two weeks. Marie Salon & Boutique uses products such as Qtica spa products and Keune hair products to keep customers looking their best. Staff members, who are well versed in the longstanding feud between fingernails and hair stubble, also use wax away surface-stippling fuzz from grateful follicles. Makeup application beautifies visages, haircuts transform heads into works of art, and spray tanning darkens epidermises for a healthy glow.
The friendly aestheticians at Bellezza Salon and Spa stave off stress and prettify toes with a menu of relaxing pedicure treatments. The one-hour spa pedicure begins as walk-weary feet are eased into a soothing bath where streams of warm water unwind knotted ligaments and relax tight tootsie tendons. Unruly phalanges face a phalanx of file-wielding pedicurists who meticulously shape each nail and curb each cuticle while pumicing rough, calloused skin and trimming off excess pie crust from the nail’s edge. After the shaping, an exfoliating foot scrub smoothes skin that is made extra silky with the application of a moisturizing lotion massaged into each foot, setting remaining tension free and relocating it to a peaceful farm in the country. Finally, a hot-towel wrap swaddles each newly shaped and softened leg paddle, locking in hydration, and ensuring comfort as each of the 12 toes receives a precise, confidence-boosting polish.
The state-licensed nail techs and expert aestheticians at Revolution Spa and Nails take pride in preening and pampering clients in a friendly, clean environment backed by the use of comfy, Belava Indulgence zero-bacteria chairs. Deliver follicular evictions to a variety of corporeal neighborhoods, including the eyebrows ($8), lip and chin ($12), full leg ($40), or underarms ($12), leaving the surrounding skin as smooth as a killer whale’s best pickup line. During basic manicures, fingertips are trimmed and shaped before a pop of polish is applied to each piggy in the pigment of their choice. Overworked hooves can then recline and unwind in the plumbing-free pedicure chair while their exhausted extremities are exfoliated, massaged, moisturized, and tenderized, before the deft digit guru finishes each toe tip with a colorful coat of lacquer.
Aesthetician Jody Roides enhances hues and polishes faces with relaxing spa treatments. Pallid skin rejoices as Jody paints it with quick drying South Seas spray-tan products, which fade naturally and eschew the risks associated with lying in the sun or bathing in a pottery kiln. Jody's signature facial begins with an initial consultation to determine clients' skin types to better balance the skin's natural oil content. Next, Institut Esthederm products cleanse, exfoliate, and extract impurities from the skin while Jody massages faces and shoulders. A mask caresses relaxed visages before a protective moisturizer guards against forthcoming elements and the eyebrow-furrowing tactics of dry humorists. Jody's anti-aging facial incorporates the same steps, but includes an upgraded mask to firm and tone the skin, as well as an under-eye treatment to alleviate puffiness and dark circles.
As hand and foot wait to be waited on, patrons relax in a cozily furnished waiting room complete with fireplace and velvety couch, and the studio is graced with full-length mirrors, wooden floors, and elegant columns. During the pedicure portion, luxurious products from Footlogix let feet relish the luxury usually reserved for hands and vestigial tentacles.
