Facial features. Personality. Lifestyle. Edna Coe takes plenty of time to consider these things long before she ever picks up a pair of scissors. For her, every makeover is a new experience, one that she builds from close consultations with her clients. After deciding on a look, Ms. Coe draws on various tools to bring 'dos to life. Aside from regular cuts, she can install human hair extensions, add color to strands, or tame frizzy hair with Brazilian Blowouts. Her steady hands are guided by more than three decades in the beauty industry, and over that time she has accumulated certifications in everything from Bio-Ionic Japanese Hair Straightening to permanent makeup.
But it's not just hair designs that bring clients into the salon and spa. Ms. Coe can also buff away wrinkles and blemishes with facial treatments. A resident manicurist, meanwhile, pampers fingers and toes with services such as Shellac mani-pedis. An altruistic spirit also draws people in; the salon participates in the Locks for Love, a charity that donates high-quality hairpieces to kids suffering from any number of illnesses, such as alopecia or cancer.
Nail Garden and its 150 employees has re-designed the traditional salon to reverse problems found in the everyday nail spot. The team emphasises quality, hygienic service, assiduously scrubbing and sanitizing the pipe-free basins between each pedicure, so that clients always soak their weary feet in sparkling, germ-free water. Meanwhile, inside the comfortable, modern location, those same clients sip green tea with one hand while the other two stretch out in front of a nail technician, who beautifies their tips with durable Shellac, glitter, or formaldehyde-free OPI polish.
Hi Lights Hair Studio's international team of versatile stylists can attend to beauty needs with a wide range of services. They add flair to hair with ammonia-free color treatments, Pravana smoothing, Brazilian blowouts, and highlights?easier ways to achieve a flattering new look than begging Rainbow Fish to give you his scales. Also on the menu are designer haircuts for both men and women, facial waxing, and multidimensional glossing. In addition, the manicurist on staff, who boasts almost 30 years in the field, specializes in European pedicures that spruce up the feet and uplift the mind and body.
Just inside the entrance to Happy Hands & Hair hangs a sign that reads, "Relax?Reflect?Renew". And for nearly 50 years, the stylists have upheld this message by maintaining a spa-like studio, a place in which visitors can relax with a complimentary cup of coffee while lounging in plush, chocolate-covered chairs abutted against cool, surf-green walls. Once Happy Hands & Hair's team members feel that guests are adequately at ease, they get to work with nail and hairstyling services, from mani-pedis bolstered with Gelish soak-off gel polishes to housemade exfoliating scrubs that blend brown sugar, olive oil, microscopic loofahs, and lemon.
Essences of lavender, chamomile, and rosemary permeate Charissa’s Nails & Beauty Lounge as skilled aestheticians administer relaxing salon and spa treatments. The staff can render a swift eyebrow waxing, or rehab nails with a formaldehyde-free gel mani-pedi. While soothing music plays in the background, stylists deftly transform tresses with face-framing haircuts and subtle or bold color highlights. The salon also offers facials, conditioning treatments, and cups of tea, which unite to form a sensible approach to relaxation, unlike fishing in the Daytona Speedway infield pond.
Fire-engine-red walls and jet-black furnishings surround beauty transformations at Nail & Hair Bar, a fashion haven that upholds a high level of sanitization and keeps up-to-date on style trends. Nails varnished with mirror-silver polish reflect smiling faces and ceiling-dwelling ghosts as french-tipped finger-ends sport geometrically square nails. After clients slink into plush styling chairs, shears-wielders snip hair into angular bobs or twist tresses into ringlet-laden up-dos.
