Healthy, beautiful hands are the primary concern at Nails Design, where manicurists combat ragged cuticles and dry skin with extra-careful attention. Pumice stones and sea salt slough away rough patches on heels, and hand, arm, and foot massages help combat soreness brought on by months of literally crawling out of bed. While the staff is committed to safeguarding the health of natural nails, they also excel at applying acrylic tips, often enhanced by vibrant hand-painted designs that incorporate everything from animal prints to holiday motifs. Beyond nails, the spa further beautifies bodies with waxing and facials, as well as eyelash extensions in a variety of colors.
Newly renovated in 2011, Mynt Salon's contemporary confines mirror the contemporary looks they bestow upon their clients. The experienced staff, led by owner My-Hanh, consult with their guests as they discuss their different treatment options. The staff includes experts in various color techniques, such as root retouches, full foils, and having clients bob for apples in a tie-dye whirlpool. By staying up-to-date on the latest trends, stylists are able to add services such as feather extensions to their already lengthy repertoire of salon treatments—haircuts, for example, are available for everyone from kids to seniors.
If little Goldilocks visited Beauty Nails in Kent, she would find five spa pedicure chairs to be too big, and one to be just right. All ages are welcomed into the salon, which houses five manicure stations along with pedicure thrones for adults and kids. The salon's technicians brush nails with OPI and China Glaze polish. For extra-long wear, they can bust out the CND Shellac polish for a manicure that lasts up to three weeks without chipping or scratching—a much better way to preserve a fresh manicure than breaking into a school and laminating your hands. The staff’s services also extend into skincare such as facials, microdermabrasion, waxing, and permanent makeup.
