Salon Lidori’s experienced staff—a beautifying phalanx of master stylists, colorists, and nail techs—mounts a campaign against chipped nails and split ends from within a relaxed salon furnished with hardwood floors, neutral tones, and modern art. Spa manicures kick off with a soak to relax hands before an exfoliating scrub burnishes appendages, buffing away dead skin cells. Files dance along nails tips, and stylists push back cuticles, preparing newly refurbished hands for a dip in the lavender-scented paraffin bath. Residual tension disappears like a snowman stepping off a plane in Florida during the hand and arm massage, and the pampering closes out with multiple coats of designer nail polish. Alternatively, gel polish clings to nails for up to two weeks without breaking or chipping.
Drenched in marigold tones, the Sun Tan City facility transforms exteriors with cosmetic treatments that harness different wavelengths of light. Smart Tan–certified professionals invite clients to lie down, stand up, or sit down to bask in bronzing rays and tanning sprays. The staff also whitens teeth with LED light during Beaming White treatments, and slims bodies or out-of-shape sports cars with infrared light during Fit body wraps.
At Intrigue Hair Studio & Spa, stylists have a steel-tight grip on the tricks and tools of crafting fashionable 'dos. They meld their industry savvy with an intimate understanding of the products they use while cutting, coloring, and texturing strands. Pre-cut consultations help pin down clients' tastes, whether they want a simple touch-up or a wedding makeover, and a stock of retail merchandise keeps locks buoyant for days following each visit. Yet although the hair whisperers are well-versed in all aspects of the coiffure arts, their specialty [service] (http://gr.pn/R1dciU) is corrective coloring, which repairs the appearance of uneven dye jobs and hair that turned only half-white after a brief ghost encounter.
In the spa area, licensed massage therapists soothe knots with Swedish and deep-tissue modalities or target nodes on the feet during reflexology treatments to ease general tension throughout the body. This style is also available as part of the Elite signature pedicure—one of many nail services that pamper extremities. In the interest of healthy, smooth skin, the venue's aestheticians also administer facials, waxing, and electrolysis.
James Ross Salon evokes a modern artist's loft with hardwood floors, leather chairs, and tall mirrors framed in carved lumber. Amid these warm accents, skilled stylists reform strands with sleek cuts and bold highlights, which can add dimension or semi-permanently designate which strands are best for pigtails. Mani-pedis reinvigorate overworked digits, and specialty waxing sessions can inspire sumptuous eyebrow curves or evict unwanted fuzz from other parts of the face.
Over nearly a quarter of a century, nail technician Kim Palumbo has embellished thousands of fingers and toes with every shade of polish under the technicolor sun. Kim has perfected both the classic manicure—brushing vibrant OPI polish or chip-resistant gel over talons in lush, solid hues—and its French variation, crafting flawless white tips on a rosé base. Though a master craftswoman, Kim takes pride in doing her work efficiently as well; she can outfit hands with a set of acrylics or complete acrylic fill-ins over the course of just half an hour, enabling clients to return swiftly to their hectic lives filled with board meetings, childcare, or watching paint before it gets too dry.
