The owners of LP Nails and Skin Care know that though every woman wants a set of stylish nails, a pair of long french tips doesn’t suit everyone’s personal style. The technicians at this salon don’t perform one-size-fits-all nail treatments; instead, they listen to each client’s desires and fashion a tailored mani-pedi treatment from a robust menu of services. The treatments range from a basic file and polish to lavish nail designs to pedicures with pampering spa add-ons such as exfoliating salt scrubs and having each toe blessed by a cobbler.
The team at Total Tranquility Salon has yet to see the head of hair they couldn't beautify. A multicultural salon, the team utilizes their versatility and experience to stylize luscious curls, glossy straight, and natural corn rows, with or without hair added. During shampoo, color, and straightening services, staffers sprinkle professional salon products—such as Keune, Moroccanoil, and Black 15 in 1—to help keep locks loaded with moisture and body.
At Lily Nail Spa, guests sip complimentary beverages as talented nail technicians swaddle feet and fingernails in soothing cocoons of relaxation during luxurious pedicure and polish treatments. During a Deluxe pedicure, sterilized equipment removes calluses before trimming cuticles and nails to ready feet for the lavender pampering to come. Tootsies exfoliate during a lavender scrub, purr during the paraffin dip, and forget the stress of upcoming double-dutch tournaments during a massage before getting a protective coat of nail polish. The gel polish shields natural, colored, or french-manicured nails with a strong coating that protects and encourages growth like a house plant’s motivational speaker for two to three weeks.
Synergy Salon owner Quy has an artist's eye when it comes to hair—and a nine-step process to guide her palette. Like a sculptor teasing a form from clay or stone, she uses her tools to reveal flattering styles for locks of any texture, and she follows Synergy's nine detailed steps to achieve rich, shimmering color. As the shop’s master hair designer and color specialist, she leads an accomplished team of stylists, including Aveda Institute graduates. Together, they create classic and dramatic looks using Redken and organic Eufora color or calm frizzy locks with Brazilian keratin treatments. Their lengthy menu of services also includes facial waxing, eyebrow threading, and eyelash extensions.
A member of Redken's Club Fifth Avenue partner program, Fusions Salon & Studio's staff members specialize in revitalizing hair and skin for ladies, gentlemen, and teens. Though they?re equally talented at rejuvenating skin, waxing away unwanted hair, and applying makeup, their ultimate passion lies in the styling and coloring of hair. Stylists seat their guests in black-leather furnishings and gaze into antique mirrors as they develop personalized color schemes to accentuate each client?s complexion, eye color, and ball and chain.
Though just a short trip from Charlotte’s bustling downtown, La Bella Vita Day Spa seems a world apart. Located amid the rolling woodlands and quaint brick buildings of Matthews, the spa reflects its immediate surroundings with serene private treatment rooms that host facials, massages, body polishes, and similarly indulgent spa services.
Wrought iron accents adorn the spa’s walls, which glow in the same golden color as the blankets spread across each massage bed. Standing beside one of these beds, massage therapists soothe anxieties and stimulate circulation with full-body Swedish techniques, neuromuscular strokes that target areas of chronic pain, and sports massages that repair muscles strained while throwing down dunks or crouching in timeout huddles. Next door, aestheticians rejuvenate skin with waxing treatments and facials that employ organic Éminence skincare products to erase blemishes. In contrast to the tranquil atmosphere of the private treatment rooms, nail technician Christie Carpenter’s manicure and pedicure stations buzz with lively chatter as she dips hands and feet in baths of moisturizing paraffin and brushes nails with vibrant polish.
