In 2006, the staff at Ms Nails began decorating nails with brightly-colored polish. Since then, they've moved to a downtown Valparaiso location, expanded their team of nail techs to include a massage therapist, started to provide hair services, and built upon their service menu to incorporate CND shellac manicures, facials, and massages. One can only assume that their continued growth will manifest itself in the hiring of a mascot shaped like a giant nail file, though these rumors have no basis in reality.
Cheveux Hair Salon's nail-detailing doyen, Melissa Goepfrich, pampers and revitalizes fingers and toes with a six-part spa mani-pedi. The process begins with an aromatherapy soak, which soothes nails' nightmares of being nibbled and supplants fears with dreams of looking lacquered. Then a cuticle conditioning and exfoliating scrub evicts impurities and buffs finger and toe façades to a dazzling sparkle. Hot towels envelope extremities in a terry-cloth embrace, releasing them just in time for a deep massage to ease away the daily stresses of work and high-pressure thumb wars. Finally, Goepfrich will awaken brush from bottle and grant nails three wishes in the form of an OPI base, color, and topcoat.
Debi is a hairstylist at Divine Hair Design, where she combines an artistic eye and steady hands to sculpt elegant and fashion-forward styles. She offers cuts, coloring, and other hair treatments inside this spacious salon, which features polished hardwood floors and cushy jet-black styling chairs. Divine Hair Design features a wide array of salon services and carries Paul Mitchell products for sale.
Amidst the muted tones and hardwood floors of TRU Salon – Spa, a wall of rainbow-hued bottles stands out. Their contents range from Redken products, such as Curvaceous formulae for curly hair and Clean Brew extra-cleansing shampoo to Pureology creams. The salon’s team, filled with stylists certified in these brands, use them to augment face-flattering cuts, or finish tresses freshly painted with highlights.
The team can beautify more than hair, however. Their facials combat everything from acne to aging, and their PCA skin treatments can smooth wrinkles, even out skin tone, and fight sun damage more effectively than wearing sunglasses on your arms and legs. Polishes from OPI and Creative Nail Design, meanwhile, power manicures and pedicures, and their permanent makeup applications streamline morning routines.
The skilled stylists of Metamorphosis Salon specialize in creative styling services, expertly highlighting locks with striking shades and artfully adorning hair with glittery tinsel extensions. The hairdressers snip up trendy cuts and elongate styles with quality Donna Bella Milan hair extensions. And as the stylists bustle about the sleek, colorful salon, the resident nail technician keeps busy at the mani-pedi station. The specialist pampers hands and feet with an array of nail services, from glittery gel manicures to anti-aging skin treatments.
Salon Diva's staffers cater to practically every beauty need, offering hair- and nailcare alongside waxing and makeup applications. And thanks to a newly minted partnership with The Cinnamon Tree, they've expanded their pampering services. Now customers can enjoy relaxing massages—including therapeutic, hot stone, and deep tissue—as well as a selection of facials.
