At Painted Bare Spa Lounge, technicians pamper hands and feet with eco-friendly and designer products from brands such as China Glaze, OPI, and CND Shellac. The signature manicure exfoliates hands to soften skin before hot towels wick away the scrub to reveal skin as smooth as a con man dunked in butter. During the pedicure, a sea-soak and an exfoliating treatment exile calluses, and an aromatic mediterranean mask moisturizes skin. Both signature manicures and pedicures conclude with a soothing massage and a polish application drawn from a selection of fashionable hues, sparkling colors, and orphaned rainbows. The Shellac manicure massages fingers and palms with almond-butter oil before technicians slick fast-drying Shellac polish onto nails. The polish then cures and strengthens under a UV lamp so that it can last up to two weeks without chips or nicks.
Vicky Barger transforms hairstyles from her styling chair, taking flat hair to fuller heights and adding dimension or volume to lackluster hairdos. Barger was drawn to the salon thanks to its "wonderful atmosphere with professional stylists and an awesome boss." The salon's stylists possess a wealth of beauty-industry experience, including owner Barry Menser's 30 years behind the chair, and each employee practices their own specialty. Barger's specialty is color, and she often sweeps brushes saturated with custom-mixed Matrix, J Beverly Hills, and Schwarzkopf hues through monochromatic strands after meeting with clients in a thorough consultation and tucking encouraging notes inside their headbands. As hair is reborn in new, more fashionable formations, clients can eye the salon's serene images of boats and ballet and sip complimentary cups of tea, cocoa, and soda.
At Luckes Beauty Academy, aspiring cosmetologists undergo rigorous training to manipulate locks and polish nails in a 3,100-square-foot studio where salon stations and a nail and pedicure spa vie for the chance to relax incoming patrons. Individualized instruction and the constant presence of expert mentors equip budding cosmetologists with the secrets of all good beautifiers, such as how to soothe finicky tresses of all textures, attach extensions, and scratch behind the handle of a pair of scissors.
At Soulful Journey, a licensed massage therapist focuses on relaxation and holistic well-being, tailoring treatments to accommodate each patient's specific needs. Clients unwind with therapeutic massages and Reiki treatments, unwinding knotted muscles with Swedish techniques, and relieving neck- and backaches with hot-stone massages.
