In a newly renovated space with tile floors and rounded white pillars, Frenchy's Nails' technicians meticulously groom hands and feet. Patrons can choose from scores of nail-polish bottles arranged by color, as they tune into the salon's quartet of plasma televisions.
Katie has tended fingers and toes for 12 years. In that time, she has mastered the art of grooming cuticles, moisturizing hands and feet in paraffin wax, and lifting away dead skin cells with scrubs or tiny cranes. At her eponymous studio, she continues to accentuate nails with OPI polish and hand-painted designs. During treatments, Katie strives to make clients feel comfortable and happy. "Each room is unique," says Katie, noting that each private treatment area is painted in a different calming hue. Upon request, she enhances the experience with a beverage and soft music.

Ehmi Nail, Salon & Spa's talented technicians tend to clients in a space marked by stone tile, textured walls, and cozy leather seating. After brainstorming with clients during complimentary consultations, they give heads more breathable cuts or change identities with coloring, highlights, and straightening treatments.

Private rooms allow visitors to luxuriate peacefully during different massage modalities, which incorporate music, hot stones, and flickering candles to coax stress out of aching muscles. Technicians also decorate faces with professional makeup applications and facials. Ehmi Nail, Salon & Spa happily opens its doors to private parties, welcoming groups celebrating events ranging from a girls’ night out to the world’s prettiest fantasy-baseball draft.
