Under the peaked roof of Custom Exteriors Salon's homey hair cottage, stylists craft signature manes that accentuate each client's face, style, and astrological sign. A slew of some of the industry's more recognizable products such as Redken, TIGI, and Paul Mitchell assist in their repertoire of hair services, which include cuts for men, women, and children alongside color treatments and facial waxing. A pleasing balance of natural and strategic spot lighting illuminate the salon's serene green interior that's accented with minimalist white styling stations.
It's hard not to feel like royalty when seated upon the cushy pedicure throne at Vogue Salon. Here, nail technician Heather reshapes cuticles and files down nails before topping fingers and toes with polish. In between, she also cossets skin with soothing masks and paraffin wax, which leaves hands as supple as a newborn spongecake.
Between each plush pedicure chair at Fresh Nails & Spa stands a translucent screen, giving clients just enough privacy to relax during a pampering nail treatment. The staff’s goal is to create an atmosphere that’s just as peaceful for everyone who visits the spa, whether they seek manicures, acrylic sets, or shellac polish, which resists chips for up to two weeks or 14 scratch-fights with a honey badger. They also specialize in threading, which they use to shape eyebrows and remove unwanted facial hair.
Nail technician Heidi has amassed a collection of 200 regular nail polish bottles and 60 gel polish bottles from such brands as Gelish, OPI, and Shellac. The kaleidoscope of colors appease any clients, from a frosty white hue that pays homage to winter to a deep red hue that perfectly matches the color of one?s eyes. Her spa mani-pedis include an exfoliating sugar scrub and relaxing massage.
