In 2002, beauty-school graduate Paula took everything she had—$5,000 and a dream of combining beauty services with holistic healing—and opened A Harmony Nail Spa. She even poured countless hours into hand-building many of the spa's unique furniture pieces and cyborg employees. Since the humble beginning, she and her fully licensed staff have pampered the minds and bodies of numerous clients with drastically different needs, from cancer patients seeking meditation classes to hardworking mothers overdue for an indulgent manicure.
Upon entering the approximately 2,000-square-foot facility, guests waltz through the gift shop's aisles before entering one of the spa's specific treatment areas. In the nail studio, clients lounge on purple thrones shaped like purple hands and dip their feet into soothing pedicure sinks. A Harmony Nail Spa also houses a garden café with free beverages, an Internet cafe with free WiFi, and a meditation lounge with freedom to close your eyes without sleeping.

Set in a tranquil environment tinged with decorative foliage and warm lighting, NY Hair Company's highly trained specialists morph messy mop-tops and unkempt cuticles into neat noodle-nests and fancy finger ornaments. Unlike thumb-wrestling sandpaper or dropkicking rock piles, the manicure ($20) and pedicure ($25) can effectively and painlessly reduce fingernails and toenails with a gentle file treatment. Meanwhile, the wash and style dry ($30+) utilizes top brand products and blow-drying techniques to add volume to deflated coiffures (see full list of services).
Specialists in hair and nails, the team members at Naughty Nails and Salon keep coifs and fingertips looking glamorous with an array of lavish treatments. The nail team’s signature manicures include a citrus-lemon soak and a raw-cane-sugar scrub infused with exotic oils to leave skin looking as vibrant as freshly painted nails. Hair treatments include highlights, single-process color, and relaxers, and a team of aestheticians offer waxing services.
