Lavish Looks Salon beautifies women of all ages and cultural backgrounds in its upscale and relaxing atmosphere. The stylists can dramatically change looks with relaxers, sew-in weaves, and hair extensions, or they can renew existing 'dos with color, highlights, and blowouts. At the nail bar, the staff treats guests to long-lasting gel manicures and nourishes nails with silk oil and hot towels. Sea salt, masks, and lotions soothe dry, tired, and cracked feet. But Lavish Looks doesn't just attend to the hair and extremities—the salon also has a makeup artist who can create looks that pop and a waxing technician who removes unwanted hair all over the body.
The stylists at Lily Salon and Spa shower clients with personalized attention when performing a variety of salon services from haircuts to highlights to Brazilian blowouts. They also take care to use only high-quality products when they are adding dimension with color treatments, reducing frizz with Japanese straightening treatments, or transforming manes with special occasion updos.
The master groomers at Nails by AkyJills polish talons to perfection with OPI products at highly sanitized stations and relieve stress or aches with targeted massage. Solo beauty seekers or pairs sipping beverages kick back in AkyJills' inviting salon as nail beautifiers primp upper and lower limbs with mini mani-pedis. Both services tend to extremities with a thorough nail shaping, cuticle trimming, and choice of polish color. Manicures in both options may be upgraded to a Bio Sculpture gel no-chip manicure for $20 per person. Aestheticians augment the treatment with a gentle massage that works an organic moisturizer, smoothing hydrator, and demo tapes from their cousins' bands into clients' hands. A choice of Swedish or deep-tissue massage eases the strain on muscles by using either gentle strokes or firm pressure to dissolve knots.
Virginia Griffin owns Kismet Nails, a hidden gem concerned with sculpting and polishing nails with an expertise that comes from ten years of experience. She coats nails with solid-color shellac or turns each surface into unique works of art that can feature everything from arabesque designs to diamond-studded patterns.
While she generally conducts business from within the salon, Virginia also hits the road for mobile services, meeting clients in homes or offices. She even puts aside entire days to take care of bridal, birthday, or little princess parties, helping clients look their best as they walk down the aisle, grow a year older, or usurp their mothers’ thrones.
