Tucked inside Unik Beauty Salon and Cafe, Specialties by Shannon allows nail artist Shannon Ridley to tend to the nails and surrounding fingers of her clients. Armed with files, orange sticks, lotion, and other essentials, she shapes nail beds, trims cuticles, and deftly applies vividly hued polish.
The technicians at Quickii Nails see the tip of each finger as an opportunity for a multimedia project. They might cover nails completely with one shade of shimmery polish, alternate between complementary colors, or draw the eye to spiraling designs, some of which sport rhinestones or polka dots to confuse your predators into thinking you?re actually a cheetah. From classic and Shellac manicures to applications of acrylics, each tiny example of artistry is unique to the client's tastes.
Within a chic space done up in globe lights and black-framed mirrors, staff members at Joseph Ryan's Hair Designs beautify bodies from head to toe, offering hairstyling services as well as manicures and pedicures. They employ an arsenal of brand-name products including Paul Mitchell shampoos, Biomega moisturizers, and OPI nail polishes in a kaleidoscopic array of colors. In addition to cropping locks, beauticians elongate 'dos using 100% human-hair extensions and a saltwater-taffy-pulling machine.
The techs at She's Nailin It take pride in delivering a healthy mani-pedi experience that's free from germs and strong smells. That's why they practice hospital-grade sterilization techniques on their equipment, and why the salon uses a ventilation system that propels harsh odors outdoors, where pigs live. Once conditions are in order they begin their services, trimming and shaping nails before applying name-brand polishes from OPI, Essie, and more.
The stylists of Sage Salon and Spa refine the beautification experience by pampering clients from the start with steaming drinks served in a soothing relaxation room. During a full range of salon and spa services—including haircuts, massages, and mani-pedis—the savvy beauty techs use top-shelf Redken products.
