The skilled digit de-stressing staff at Liquid Hair Studio artfully revives frazzled fingertips and tuckered out toes with a relaxing array of nail services. During the manicure, mitts molt their drab feathers in an exfoliative soak and, after an expert polish application, flaunt their shiny plumage to envious onlookers. Pedicure professionals then tend to feet exhausted from constantly walking on eggshells as they scrub away rough spots, massage fraught phalanges, and festoon nails with cheer-inducing color. Guests emerge from the serene, sense-soothing salon with velvety hands and hooves, ready to cartwheel all the way home.

Licensed aesthetician Melissa Mixon creates her own skincare products from freshly-harvested organic ingredients such as lavender and rosemary. These herbs help to soothe and nourish complexions during a handful of luxurious facial services. However, Melissa has also worked with a NASA rocket scientist to learn the art of LED light therapy, a skin-tightenting technology that noninvaseively lifts faces and sculpts bodies. These treatments shine specialized red light onto specified areas to reduce sagging and signs of cellulite, firming up skin on the face or body.
Regardless of whether she's wielding garden plants or space-age tools, Melissa focuses on convincing her clients that they are celebrities. She combines her expertise as a makeup artist, model, and skincare professional to create the ultimate pampering experience for each visitor. She also personalizes her spa offerings—the massage-focused Mukha Abhyanga Ayurvedic Facial, for example, can include the use of a seasonal aromatherapy herbal pack specially crafted to suit the client's skin type. Her Acne Terminator facial centers around deft extractions, complemented by camphor or mint formulas that eliminate bacteria and refresh complexions more effectively than bobbing for apples in a bucket of Listerine.
