Framed drawings of flowers line the walls above cushy pedicure chairs as sunlight streams in through the floor to ceiling windows, bouncing off verdant plants perched throughout the establishment. This idyllic scene belongs to Polished Nail Bar and Hair Salon, and it takes the appearances of its customers as seriously as it takes the looks of its interior. A wealth of nail and salon services accentuate clients' beauty in the form of acrylic manicures, highlights, and special occasion updos sturdy enough to harbor goldfish bowls.

The skilled technicians at Pour L’Image beautify clients with nailcare, waxing, and brow and lash tinting. They specialize in waterless spa pedicures, in which guests relax on comfortable pedicure cots with feet enveloped in warm booties, a nice change from the typical whirlpool soaks or shark-tank dips. Additionally, they use vegetable-based dyes to darken brows and lashes for up to six weeks.
At Silk Body Waxing Studio, licensed aesthetician Kristen Whiting might be the one removing hair from your body, but you're the one in control. Kristen allows her clients to determine the speed and technique of her waxing services. For especially sensitive skin, she might take a slow, section-by-section approach, whereas those who prioritize speed receive a swift yet gentle procedure. Regardless of their preference, one rule remains firm: no double dipping.
Kristen caters to men and women alike with her supply of cream-based and hard wax. She specializes in Brazilians, which remove every strand of hair from the front and back of the pelvic region. This and other body waxing services leave physiques smooth and primed for summer activities, such as hitting the beach or worshipping Ra. In addition to areas such as the chest, underarms, and abdomen, Kristen also waxes parts of the face, from brows to sideburns to lips. And, as a trained skincare professional, she can even accompany clients on shopping trips for skin products and provide other advice for keeping pores healthy.
At Legendary's Weaving Salon, candy-pink walls and hardwood floors surround hair-weaving masters and their clients, creating a lavish backdrop for stunning above-shoulder makeovers. Stylists decorate scalps with weaves made from virgin human hair in a variety of styles from all over the world, masterfully applied through full sew-ins or glueless blend-in treatments. They nourish strands with keratin smoothing treatments and quinoa-protein damage remedies, or add bold dashes of color with Elumen color conditioning or color-glossing lock-ins. As they await their organic facials or luxurious salon treatments, guests relax on a cozy couch with a complimentary glass of wine, using the studio's free WiFi to catch up on work emails or unseat the previous Foursquare mayor in a devastating smear campaign.
The staff at Tommi Salon and Spa pamper clients in an airy space with third-floor views of the center city. Stylists trim tresses beneath broad windows in the salon, which also offers services from coloring and straightening to ornate wedding-day updos. The spa swathes clients in a luxurious, but minimalist aesthetic. Footbaths glow blue, purple, and green along a sleek white banquette with six pedicure stations. Other services, such as facials, massages, and waxing, take place in four private treatment rooms; aestheticians also create custom-blended treatments inside a dedicated Spa Lab.
