Exposed brick walls pair with wispy sheer curtains to bring a rustic elegance to Level 3 Salon and Spa. Classic haircuts, highlights, and mani-pedis join more modern treatments such as infrared-sauna sessions and permanent makeup for a complete slate of services. Elegant chandeliers illuminate private treatment rooms, where patrons relax during massages, facials, and waxing for the face and pancreas.
When greeting clients, Top Line Nails's Jimmy is friendly, funny, and charming. When it comes to actually painting nails, though, he's all business. He provides his clients with intricate, hand-painted designs, transforming each nail into a unique work of art which complements its neighbors. He often paints these creations in the style of French tips, leaving the bulk of the nail a natural pale pink, while the tops boast sparkling finishes that fade from blue to pink, intricate patterns of palm fronds or flowers, or even hearts and tiny gems.
The Beauty Room appears in clients’ homes or offices after licensed aesthetician and nail technician Julie Wobbe sets up her treatment table. Whether she treats them in their own space or out of her space inside of Harlow Boutique Salon, Wobbe eases clients into relaxation during treatments such as facials, manicures, peels, microdermabrasion, airbrush tans, and waxing. Wobbe’s treatments are the result of years of experience: she has tested several techniques and products to find the most effective combinations.
The trio of owners behind Pamper Me Massage & Day Spa each contribute something unique to their business: Gary Lindquist is the financial backer, Daniel Lindquist is the promoter and go-to guy, and Eva Fleck is the face of the company. Their team of skilled specialists comes in three parts as well, much like a short fantasy novel adapted into an extremely long film series. Their nail tech pampers hands and feet with mani-pedis, acrylic nails, and hand-painted nail art. The aesthetician purifies pores with facials, body wraps, and sauna sessions, and tints exteriors with airbrush tanning and prune unwanted fuzz with wax. For full-on relaxation, the massage therapist plies bodies with techniques such as Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, hot stone, and prenatal.
The stylists at More Pzazz boast an eclectic array of specialties?Noella Fisher, for example, focuses on dimensional color, whereas Bailey Barret expertly braids hair into interlocks, half backs, and corn rows. Those are just two of the many pros on the salon's team, and they all wield products from brands such as Redken and Pureology as they create custom hairdos. They share the space with aestheticians, who rejuvenate complexions with anti-aging facials, and manicurists, who brighten nails with a rainbow of colors.
Phalanges Nail Boutique ensures sandal appeal with paraffin-wax treatments, gel enhancements, and specialty products by Perfectly Posh. Skilled nail technicians apply chip-free and no-peel Shellac and Gelish polish in a multitude of colors, then lead clients to UV and LED lamps for quick-drying in 2 minutes or less. The spa manicure, which adds a moisturizing mask to classic services, leaves nails the ideal length for tearing open envelopes from pen pals or scratching itchy spots on friendly mosquitoes.
