After 19 years honing her skill at other local hair studios, Doreen has opened up her own full-service salon in the heart of Addyman Square. Amid leather furniture and purple accents, Doreen and her highly trained stylists can transform tresses with Redken hair products or deftly shape nails with custom nail services. Clients can also solicit a personalized makeup session for an upcoming wedding, prom, or competitive eating contest.
Angel Tips has clearly built a fan base since opening its first location in 1996—the business has expanded to more than 60 locations in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Perhaps it's because each licensed staff member formally trains at the Angel Tips training center in Stamford, Connecticut, ensuring that each location employs skilled nailcare and waxing technicians. Their services include pedicures infused with fresh lemon, manicures with hand and shoulder massages, and upgraded manicures with durable, chip-resistant gel polish. They also perform facials and body treatments, such as a signature body scrub, which begins with a sauna session, continues with a dip in a jacuzzi, and finishes with an essential-oil massage.
Rainbow World Nail decks out finger shields with high-quality products by brands such as OPI, Color Club, and Essie. The modern nail salon also offers an array of high-tech equipment such as warm UV lights for fast nail drying, pedicure chairs that self disinfect themselves, and gas-powered nail clippers.
Dozens of nail-polish bottles line the shelves at Jin Town Nails, which offers clients more lacquer options than a chameleon's mood ring. Of course, those coats of polish come after extensive pampering. In addition to clipping, filing, and buffing nails, mani-pedis include hand and foot massages and skin-softening paraffin wax dips. After nails are dry, clients can indulge in facials or relax while a skin expert waxes away unwanted hair.
In an elegant space decorated with teal walls and hanging chandeliers, Pelorus Nails' stylists decorate nails with intricate designs. Exfoliating scrubs and hot towels ensure that skin also gets pampered during mani-pedis, and waxing and threading sessions keep body hair at bay.
Nails Plus Spa specializes in glamming up hands and feet, offering nail services that range from silk wraps to gel manicures. And as its name implies, the spa offers other pampering services, too. These include soothing shiatsu massages and exfoliating body scrubs along with deep-cleansing and galvanic facials.
