Comfy leather couches, oversized wood-framed mirrors, and a sprawling open floor plan coalesce to forge an elegant but laidback atmosphere inside Paloosh Salon. Here, clients can plop into the wide-backed swivel seats at hairstyling stations or sink into cushy pedicure chairs as they watch their coiffures morph from bland to dazzling or their nails take on new hues to match the pet goldfish they carry with them everywhere. A team of six artists offers a variety of services, harnessing their individual backgrounds and continuing education to meticulously color strands, effectively defuzz legs, and expertly apply makeup for special occasions.
In a time when women had few freedoms, one lived a wild, unhindered life: the pirate Anne Bonny. A swashbuckling, booty-plundering free spirit, Bonny hailed from Charleston, and it's her example that the stylists at Anne Bonny's Waxing Studio follow. To help each woman who enters feel as empowered and self-realized as Bonny, these beauty mavens transform looks with everything from masterful massage, to gel nails and henna tattoos. Danyiel, for example, rejuvenates complexions with cleansers, LED light therapy, and special microdermabrasion wands.
Modern lights dangle from the ceiling like glowing red tulips and illuminate the salon’s mint-green walls, beige tiles, and pristine leather pedicure chairs. Amid these cozy accents, skilled manicurists decorate fingernails with a vast selection of more than 1,500 bottles of polish, including brands such as OPI, Essie, and China Glaze. Clients may also solicit the salon for neck, back, and shoulder massages for an additional fee, or opt for sleek eyelash extensions or specialty nail art in intricate designs, such as hearts, stars, and Escher-esque paintings of nails painting themselves.
