A lot has changed in the nail industry since the days of flaky polish and gas-powered clippers. That's why expert tech Marilyn Harrison vows to always be on the fringe of the latest trends in professional nailcare. In the comfort of her private Nailz by Mare suite, she can outfit claws with a simple coat of polish, or lavish a full spa package upon guests with a mani-pedi, brow waxing, and an invigorating facial treatment.
Hair and nails have a lot in common; they're in a perpetual state of growth, they look better with color, and they both taste better when dipped in chocolate. Drawing on these and other similarities, Studio 360 Salon & Spa offers a beautification mecca to pamper both hair and nails simultaneously. Guests can request Leslie for bold layers and color highlights, or solicit Mare's expertise for a coat of durable color polish.

Licensed cosmetologists wield scissors and hair dye to craft new styles for both male and female clients. They cut away unwanted length, add highlights, and sew in extensions. Manicurists are also available to paint nails with regular and gel polish, and can press on jewels for added drama.
