Born and raised in Birmingham, Bonnie now pretties up her hometown one fingernail at a time. She trained at Linda's School of Beauty before refining her skills over the next 14 years as a manicurist. During that time, she came to appreciate how much using a quality product can help make her treatments stand out; that's why she employs brands such as OPI, Creative Nail Design, and Qtica. She particularly recommends shellac gels for busy women, as the colorful gel polish dries quickly, lasts up to 14 days, and won't chip.
The aestheticians at Pamp-A-Roma give hands and feet the star treatment. They trim and buff nails during mani-pedis, before applying standard OPI polishes, glazes, or chip-resistant Shellac. They administer some out-of-the-ordinary treatments as well, such as a jelly pedicure. During this service, feet and toes dip into a pool of gelatin that warms muscles. Additionally, Pamp-A-Roma's team isn't confined to a single location. They travel to homes for spa parties and treat birthday girls and guests to spa services such as mani-pedis.
The Hair Dashery has dutifully kept all types of hair in line for more than 30 years with a deluxe menu of styling services. Its skilled stylists can craft voluminous layers, sew in weaves, or straighten strands with relaxers. The salon also provides services for those experiencing hair loss, using the American Cancer Society–certified hair-loss specialist it has on hand. Clients may also solicit an aesthetician for a makeup application, lash extensions, or a durable coat of Shellac nail polish.
Michelle Williams at Head 2 Toe has dressed up fingers and toes for nearly three decades. The seasoned nail technician pampers clients with skin-softening hand- and foot-masks and hot-towel treatments, before touching up nails with monochromatic color, nail art, or french polish. She also waxes unwanted hair and freshens visages with relaxing facials. Outfitted with comfortable massage chairs, her spa makes an ideal oasis after a long day of work or haunting houses.
After leaving Brows 2 Lashes, customers sport a wardrobe of different designs on their nails, including zebra stripes, polka dots, and Hello Kitty faces. Stylists thread and wax eyebrows, shaping hairs into soft and curving lines and applying eyebrow extensions. Mani-pedis re-envision nails in dozens of vibrant colors and designs, including pastels for Easter and binary code for Bill Gates’ birthday.
The Nails & More photo gallery explodes with more colors than a crayon box––but what's most impressive is the precision. Among the many literal thumbnail shots are tiny geometric shapes, repeating designs, as well as precisely applied solid shades for more subtle decoration. For long-lasting beauty, spa guests may also request durable Gelish polish, which can go up to two weeks without chipping.
