Friends Hair & Nails, a sister salon to Andrew Marke, treats noodle nest, nail beds, and soul sacks with a range of services. Guests can opt to primp and pamper puppet-show starlets with a mani-pedi. An experienced nail nurturer cleans, clips, and contours before adding a fresh coat of polish.
At La Moda International Hair Design, 20 professional stylists glamorize clients with customized haircuts and hair services, with a special focus on up-dos and wedding parties. In the salon, nail technicians also perform a variety of mani-pedi treatments, including French manicures, nail art, and polish changes. They can also supplement their services with special treatments such as massages for the forearms, lower legs, and feet.
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.
Since opening its doors more than 20 years ago, Sundays Sun Spa—formerly known as Sundays Tanning Salon—has become the go-to place for guests looking to get bronze and lean in a spa-like environment. Curtains and crawling vines line the earth-toned studio, where certified staff members fastidiously maintain each piece of equipment with a 10-point sanitation procedure. Airbrush artists craft custom tans with a gold-plating mist made from natural, paraben-free ingredients. Their selection of high-pressure horizontal and standing UV beds sport fresh lamps for quick doses of color. To help slenderize bodies, they power up the Formostar infrared-body-wrap system, which is designed to boost metabolic rates and diminish cellulite while burning calories during a relaxing treatment.
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.
Relaxation is both a concept and a destination at Soma Health & Fitness, where sleek wooden floors are bathed in the sunbeams streaming in from symmetrical skylights. Here, visitors steep selves in soothing services such as massage therapy and physiotherapy, which pairs clients with certified professionals for one-on-one treatments that tackle movement difficulties with postural correction, muscle stimulation, and ultrasound treatments to seek out cursive injury reports spelled out in knotted tendons. Rehabilitative kinesiology combined with yoga and cardio fitness classes in the fully-equipped gym boost clients' cardiovascular health and muscle tone while providing an outlet for emotional renewal.
