The expert nail technicians at Secret Style Nail Salon decorate digits with manicures and pedicures for men and women. Their basic nail treatments clean up cuticles and reshape nails with filing sessions before ending in a flourish of polished color from brands such as OPI. Techs also harness UV rays to harden no-chip manicures, which is the most practical use of solar-themed power since scientists used the sun to cook the world’s largest pizza.
In addition to showing off their technical skills, staff members also reveal their artistic sides with custom nail art. Using luxe OPI polish, they can decorate nails with creative designs such as animal prints and floral arrangements or hand-painted characters including SpongeBob SquarePants, Winnie the Pooh, and the Pink Panther.
Born in Switzerland and raised in Lichtenstein, Markus Nigg can remember sweeping up the hair in his dad's barbershop when he was only 5 years old. Following in his father's footsteps, Markus apprenticed as a barber, but instead of staying in Europe, he came to the United States and continued the tradition of the neighborhood barbershop. Now owner of M.E.N.S. Esquire, Markus keeps the shop as relaxed and welcoming as it was when it opened in 1928. A vintage-style barber pole spins just outside the entrance, and on the other side, an antique red bell announces each guest's arrival. As blues or rock plays on the radio, Markus and his three barbers stand ready by throwback chairs that cushion gents with green leather seats and sturdy metal frames. After visitors sit down, the barbers groom clients with haircuts, hot shaves, beard trims, mustache extensions, and neck cleanups.

With its glossy black tiles and ornate furnishings, the interior of Total Image combines the relaxing atmosphere of a contemporary salon with classic baroque styling. This balance between old-fashioned and modern elegance finds a worthy counterpart in the salon’s UV-free tanning and cosmetic services, which aim to imbue skin with a timeless beauty. The staff of experienced beauticians approaches each 15-minute spray-tan application with an uncommon concern for detail, evenly covering the skin with a DHA-based solution derived from sugar and beets. Across the salon, a dedicated team of makeup artists summons pink lips, tinted lashes, and cherry-red tic-tac-toe boards on forearms.
