Some nail techs draw dots and stripes on their clients' nails and call that art. Not so with Combs Salon's nail artist Dixie. The dots she draws might actually be the seeds on a slice of watermelon; the stripes the curving patterns on a monarch butterfly's wing.?She has even been known to decorate nails with My Little Pony characters, sports team logos, and comic book characters.
Dixie discovered her passion for pretty nails when she was a child and would paint her mom's nails. But she convinced herself that her dream was working with computers and making sure they didn't become sentient. As a result, she worked for a help desk for three years. While she manned the phones, she would paint her nails to pass the time. Dixie quickly realized that she needed to be in a more creative career, so she enrolled in beauty school and discovered her passion for beautiful nails.
At The Glam Specialist, aesthetician Jaxsen Jackson treats nails to pruning and polishing services and transforms tresses with precision cuts and color. Everything from Shellac nail polishes to acrylic extensions adds flair to fingertips, and hair treatments such as highlights enliven manes with vibrant waterfalls of color akin to daredevils riding down Niagara Falls in barrels of yellow paint.
The friendly stylists and aestheticians at Valley Salon & Spa make customers feel as welcome as a soldier in a Norman Rockwell painting. Valley's nail technician ushers fingers and toes onto the red carpet with spa nail services that bounce dry skin and keep chipped nails behind the velvet rope. North of the neck gets in on the special treatment with a shampoo and style and/or Valley Signature facial that makes faces feel silky smooth and years younger by sloughing off layers of dead skin, like peeling open a banana to reveal the creamy mashed potatoes inside. Makeup applications are carried out with equal panache, bringing out facial features that might otherwise be lost in overwhelming face skin. Valley Salon & Spa welcomes its clients with only the finest products, including Kenra, OPI and Glominerals.
