Hands and feet give rounds of applause after the technicians at Castle Nails & Spa tend to them with nailcare and skin-softening treatments. Manicure and pedicure services gussy up natural nails, and powder and gel sets create long, strong, faux nails that can be glittered for added effect. When technicians aren’t getting nails in tiptop shape for scratching itches of revealing winning lottery tickets, they infuse hands with moisture during soothing dips in paraffin wax.
The beauty professionals at EuroTouch Salon & Spa root their work in the European philosophy, which they define as "the philosophy of healing, clarifying and rejuvenating the mind, body, and spirit." As hair stylists, nail technicians, massage therapists, and skincare experts perform treatments that fulfill these tenets, the surrounding decor evokes Old-World sensibilities—ornate golden-framed mirrors, Romanesque pillars, and Renaissance-like paintings create a tranquil, baroque ambiance. The reception area features a full-size water fountain that could easily grace an Italian piazza or Ponce de León's master bathroom. In this setting, clients undergo curative treatments with M.D. Forté skincare products or submit to personally tailored services or packages.
Maroon pedicure chairs line the walls at Li-En Nail Salon 1, where feet soak in warm whirlpool tubs before an exfoliating sea scrub and mask treatment. During manicures, a wall-mounted TV entertains patrons as nail technicians top fingertips with bright shades of OPI and China Glaze polish.
Mattress King's wide selection of mattresses from well-known brands such as Sealy Posturepedic, Embody, and Stearns & Foster run the firmness and texture gamut, giving sleepers of all shapes and sizes a shot at a good night's rest. Sealy's Posturepedic queen-sized Spirited supports dreamers with a comfortable durability ($409 for the mattress, $699 for the set). Dozers with a penchant for luxurious expediency snooze on the Stearns & Foster Bradenburg queen-sized bed, which lends backsides a plush surface and a patient ear as they complain about lousy desk chairs ($719 for the mattress, $1,169.10 for the set), or opt to bounce to another to decide which size fits the mold.
For more than two decades, the experienced technicians at In The Nails have been making Huntsville’s scenery brighter by outfitting its residents with vibrant polish and artificial nails as well as pampering clients with a selection of skincare and massage services, including deep-tisse and shiatsu treatments. During relaxing manicures, they brush nails with a hypoallergenic shellac that sports a mirror-like finish and lasts up to 14 days without cracking, chipping, or caramelizing. Along with the expert nailcare that inspired the salon’s name, the team promotes all-over wellness with massages, peels, waxing, and other clinical skincare services and participates in community-service efforts to keep discarded hangnails off the streets.
At V's Blowout Bar, the stylists turn bad hair days into superstar-caliber ones in 30 minutes or less. Their tools? A wash station, a blow drier, and years of experience. The team also offers a B.Y.O.B. experience, thought it doesn't have anything to do with drinks. Clients are invited to Build Your Own Blow-Out package by adding on a trim, color, or strengthening treatment to their expert blow-dries. But hair appointments aren't all this salon has to offer. It's also easy to walk out with a shiny mani-pedi or body waxing, neither of which include a blow drier in the process.
