A visit to Nail Club LLC is a bit like visiting a fairy godmother. Clients arrive with drab nails and seemingly enchanted forests of body hair and leave with gleaming digits and freshly waxed skin. To effect this transformation, aestheticians turn to OPI and Essie polishes, and Shellac and gel treatments. While the techs work their magic, guests can take a spin on the salon’s iPads.
The popularity of Viva Glam Salon's beauty treatments among brides led to it earning a spot on the Knot's 2012 Best of Weddings list. Regular clients can benefit from the stylists' experience and attention to detail during ammonia-free color treatments and formaldehyde-free Brazilian blowouts. Styling services can replicate glamorous looks from different eras: stylists perform traditional updos, vintage finger waves, and modern braids and fishtails. In the makeup chair, stylists perfect complexions with traditional and airbrush applications, ensuring clients look their best before a driver's license photo or cheekbone-modeling session.
The stylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians at Ultimate Visions Hair Salon & Spa have been pampering clients for more than 15 years. They work hard to deliver what they call the “ultimate experience”—that is, doing everything in their power to make customers feel welcome and happy with their services and hopefully exceeding expectations. You can choose from three types of stylist here: assistant stylist, stylist, or master stylist. Each has different levels of experience, style specialties, and nicknames for their scissors.
Walker's Apothecary owner and licensed aesthetician Shalea Walker and her team of mug mollycoddlers swathe skin in a proprietary line of products and services that have adorned various celebrity visages. A 60-minute spa manicure (a $25 value) and pedicure (a $50 value) clips and files nails into chic alignment before coating each digit cap in a fresh coat of vibrant paint. Rough feet transform into velvety leg ends with a rejuvenating callus treatment, as hand and foot moisture masks are applied to act out a hydrating kabuki play for bodily extremities. Inspired by already pampered paws, faces can opt to call a chronological timeout with a 65-minute anti-aging facial customized to skin type. Exfoliating dead skin cells and renewing facial canvasses with the aid of a moisturizing vitamin C mask, the textural transformation gets an additional boost from a glycolic peel specialized for dry, hyperpigmented skin, removing dull, human-husk build-up and restoring your face to the glowing neck fruit it was always meant to be.
