The stylists and nail artists at Only Nails and Hair boast decades of experience. In their capable hands, clients can relax during a pedicure or prep hands for a visit to the Louvre by adding nail art to digits. Despite the spa’s name, its menu also includes waxing treatments, lash extensions, and deep-tissue massage.
Nail tech Kim Burke adds to her 15 years of experience while performing nailcare services. During manicures, Kim shapes nails and tops them with UV-cured gel polishes, classic paint, acrylics, extensions, or fossilized dinosaur talons. She can also repair chipped or broken nails or hydrate skin with paraffin wax.
A.R.T. Massage Body Spa takes its name from the three adjectives that describe each one of its services: advanced, relaxing, and therapeutic. The staff promises their clients will enjoy the latest techniques designed to both soothe the mind and relieve specific needs. Massage therapies thwart tension and improve range of motion, and custom spray tans give skin a sun-kissed glow without having to find a sun-size box of chocolates first. Using Éminence Organic products, the staff cleanses skin and fights signs of aging during signature, cleansing, or organic express facials with blends of organic herbs, fruits, and vegetables rich with nutrients.
Set inside a 1920s bungalow, the spa decorates each private room in modern decor with subtle touches, such as finger bells and aromatics, that appeal to all senses. Before or after treatments, patrons can peruse a selection of clothing, candles, handbags, and jewelry inside the spa’s retail area, which also sells the Éminence Organic skincare line.
A Touch of Heaven Salon Massage & Day Spa stocks a large inventory of well-respected pampering products. Nail technicians employ OPI and Gelish polish, and hairstylists primp tresses with smart Solutions, Redken, Sexy Hair, and KMS products. An assemblage of massage therapists and aestheticians performs indulgent work at the spa too, allying to relax and beautify their clients. They execute 10 varieties of massage, from the gentle, simple Swedish to the choreographed complexity of the four-handed massage—performed by two therapists or one octopus also juggling four tennis balls. They combine treatments of the body's inner tissues with herbal or peppermint-scented wraps to rejuvenate the outer layer.
Outside of the private rooms lies the salon proper, where stylists carefully ply their craft on the hair and nails of their patrons. They imbue locks with new color, wax away unwanted hair, and even provide spray tans to maintain a summery glow throughout winter's tenure.
Built on the styling philosophies of Paul Mitchell Academy, Intrigue by Colour Salon & Spa uses classic and modern techniques to transform hairdos into enviable fashion accessories. The salon's team, which includes a national Paul Mitchell educator and graduates of the aforementioned school, renovates strands with custom haircuts, Brazilian Blowout straightening treatments, and natural hair extensions from Hairdreams. In keeping with the salon's name, though, their signature service is color. They bathe hair in vibrant hues and apply an array of coloring effects, such as dimensional color or 19th century pointillism.
Every treatment at Intrigue is automatically a soothing one, thanks to a color scheme of deep, soothing blues and earth tones. Cushioned reclining chairs set the stage for relaxing foot massages and shellac mani-pedis. In the spa area, custom facials and rejuvenating peels with GloTherapuetics products help soothe skin and clear up severe topical issues.
Master nail technician Aly Jimenez channels more than a decade of experience to beautify her clients' nails and treat their hands and feet to luxurious spa experiences. OPI products abound in the salon, although clients may also choose to have their nails adorned with China Glaze or CNS Shellac polish, the latter of which cures under a UV lamp and resists chipping for up to 14 days. Aly's services range from solar nails to spa mani-pedis complete with hot towels, scented scrubs, massages, and paraffin wax. As a specialist on pedicures for those with diabetes, she also proffers relief for condition-related foot pain or discomfort.
Aly practices her art far from her hometown of Havana, Cuba, which she left more than a decade ago to seek freedom and a better life for her family. As a result, she can communicate to clients in both English, Spanish, and the language of accomplishment, Elvish.
