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.
Tammie—of Nails by Tammie at Axis Hair Design—believes in nail health, which is why she offers a variety of services and treatments, including aqua-therapy salt soaks and coats of nail strengthener. Tammie finishes off treatments with polish from OPI, Essie, China Glaze, or long-lasting CND Shellac.
Mike Davis has always been about giving people chances. As a juvenile correction specialist, he worked with young offenders to educate them and, ultimately, give them more opportunities in their future then they had in their pasts. Though he switched careers to hair styling, Mike still likes to give new stylists a chance to perfect their trade in his salon. One of those stylists is Tiffani, a young woman who specializes in hair styling. She says her signature service is the silk press, a time-consuming hair straightening treatment that lets locks flow more naturally and lasts longer than other methods. Though performing a silk press can be tedious, Tiffani enjoys doing it just to see her clients walk out the door as "happy, satisfied customers."
