Inside Salon M&D’s open and airy space, professionals beautify clients with a range of hair, nail, and skin services. Stylists rejuvenate ’dos with cuts, coloring, keratin sessions, and diamond hair treatments, which enliven dull, lifeless locks by replacing them with sparkling rubies. Elsewhere, nail techs spruce up fingers and toes with mani-pedis, and massage therapists knead tense muscles in appointments ranging from 30 to 90 minutes. Aestheticians wax unwanted hair from bodies and apply cleansing facials and skin-brightening peels.
The techs at Polished Nail Lounge approach nails like artists do a blank canvas. Working closely with clients to create designs that express their individual personalities, the nail experts apply acrylics and chip-resistant gel polishes as well as intricate, colorful 3-D-art sets to fingertips. These sets may include the use of crystals, stones, or customized, original brush art.
At Luxury Nails, technicians use the standard mani-pedi as a platform to build out a lush array of nail services. They work with gel-based products, including regular gel polish and LCN artificial nails that are cured with light just like a no-chip manicure. To top off the shellacking, the techs coat nails in single color finish, or pink-and-white combos to match their favorite cupcakes.
Classic preparations of Italian culinary comforts have been the mission at the family-run Provesi Ristoranté for 20 years, during which the kitchen staff has mastered cooking styles from all regions of Italy. Both its veal scallopini and chicken breast, for example, can be ordered in eight or nine different styles respectively, including parmiagiana, francese, and milanese. Elsewhere in the kitchen, margherita, white, and quattro-stagioni pizzas are prepped in a brick oven, and shellfish and linguini are tossed in the zuppa di pesce’s fra diavolo sauce. As the amply portioned dishes arrive at tables, the wait staff uncork bottles of wine that diners bring from home. White umbrellas shield guests dining outdoors, while exposed bricks, hanging plants, and arched windows add a rustic touch to the first-floor dining room. A wood-paneled wall reveals an opening into the kitchen, and a stairway leads to the downstairs room, where stonewalls and brick beams surround the long tables that facilitate private dining events.
The rustic stone façade of Peace Nails & Spa belies the modern techniques used within to beautify skin and nails. Clients look at ranks of traditional and gel polishes on a mosaic-decorated display before swiveling in manicure stations’ royal blue chairs. Cushioned pedicure chairs help patrons relax as staffers buff away calluses or treat feet to lavender and aloe treatments. While emery boards rasp quietly, classic or french pedicures leave feet beautiful for when you don flip-flops or realize nobody can see if you’re wearing shoes behind a news desk. The shelves at the shop also brim with waxes for removing hair from faces, appendages, and bikini areas.
Plaza Salon & Spa's artistic design team works with clients to discover the eye-catching cuts and color treatments that make manes both look and feel great. In addition to the advanced salon services, the European day spa environment imbues visitors with relaxation, aided by a menu of services that includes facials, nail care, eyelash extensions, spray tans, and massages.
