Alba Salon's commitment to client satisfaction shows in the training and guiding philosophies of its skilled stylists, aestheticians, and manicurists, who all strive for perfection in their services. Nail technician Trang Tran follows these principles and works to ensure that each guest leaves with impeccably polished fingers and radiantly glowing pinky toes. Sessions conclude only when patrons—whether being tended to by Trang or receiving a stylish haircut or pampering facial—are satisfied. Staffers extend the courtesy by imparting tips on keeping hair, nails, or temporary “you're gorgeous” tattoos maintained between appointments.
The stylists at Alba Spa & Salon talk clients through every step of the haircare process, from an initial consultation to the cut itself to tips for successful at-home styling. This devotion to clients extends throughout the whole staff at the salon and spa. Aside from traditional services such as color treatments, waxing, and massages, the staff members will also consult with clients on services that, like Wagner?s Ring Cycle to a prom DJ, aren?t included in their standard lineup. These services could range from offbeat color choices and application techniques to unusual event hairstyling, limited only by the client and stylist's collective imagination.

During more than 15 years in the beauty industry, Tracy Belknap experienced firsthand the positive effects beauty treatments can have on a woman's self-esteem. She helps bolster her clients' confidence with simple beauty solutions and has even seen women cry with joy after a single treatment, a reaction that only strengthened her resolve to found Lash Envy & Day Spa. Though she offers facials and other spa treatments, Tracy has a particular affinity for luxurious eyelash extensions, which she has been applying for the last seven years. The licensed eyelash specialist and her four other lash artists all rely on a steady hand and medical-grade glue to affix the single-strand lashes to 70% or 100% of natural lashes or to the full forehead.
Nails are given the royal treatment at this crimson-hued downtown studio, where a plush red-and-gold armchair awaits to coddle guests as they soak their feat in a pipe-less, flower-filled pedicure basin. Basic services see finger and foot tips pampered with their fair share of filing and buffing before digits are coated in the OPI polish of their choice, and those looking for extra indulgence may be massaged and moisturized with lemongrass-scented products by Get Fresh Spa. Nail Studio's technicians can also enhance each nail's natural beauty by applying acrylic tips, or swap out standard polish for Shellac or gel finishes that can last up to two weeks without chipping or turning into stone.
