Seasoned technician Julie Gentry, a knowledgeable member of the Creative Nail Design collective, heads The French Manicure's multifaceted staff of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists. Crew members adeptly perform spa and salon services, sculpting tresses during hairstyling sessions and kneading away knots or extraterrestrial body-snatchers masquerading as knots during Swedish and deep-tissue massages. Exposed-brick walls bedecked with artwork encircle the skincare room, where aestheticians regale clients with cleansing facials and slimming seaweed body wraps. Thorough manicures and pedicures revivify clients' nails, and waxing services erase unwanted fuzz from faces, legs, arms, and hidden arms.
Just past the entrance to Nails By ME hangs an impossible-to-miss portrait of Marilyn Monroe?a mark of enduring style and beauty mirrored by the nail boutique's diverse menu of services. Administering more than just simple trims, the aestheticians hone in on fingers and cover them in luxurious finishes such as Minx Nails, an alternative to polish that results in a solid, chip-resistant coating. And when they?re not attending to individual clients, the nail techs transform into party planners, welcoming bachelorette parties and other groups with decorations, glasses of wine, mani-pedis, and classic rounds of pin the acrylic nail on the index finger.

Recessed lights linger overhead like a star constellation, illuminating the salon’s neon green walls and sleek black leather furniture speckled with black-and-white accent pillows. The black-and-white theme carries into the wall-dominating pop-art portraits of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, the style icons who inspire skilled stylist Julie Wade and her team at Kristin Karl Salon. They give guests celebrity style with flattering cuts, add dimension to locks with color and highlights, and smooth out frizz with Brazilian blowouts. To prep patrons for upcoming weddings or jury-duty reunions, the whip strands into intricately braided ponytails or classic updos.
