With Salon Del Monaco as her backdrop, Kristi Georges takes hold of scissors. The blades thrum together as she styles hairdos, drawing on more than a decade of experience in the industry. Beneath shelves laden with Redken and Enjoy haircare products, her customers recline on the cushy chairs of the salon, where the friendly stylist and an absence of haggard mariners with long stories of woe create a welcoming atmosphere.
Throughout the last decade, the trilingual beauty professionals at iNail Care & Spa have simultaneously broadened and honed their skills. In addition to manicuring nails the traditional way, technicians upgrade fingertips with gel polishes and intricate designs—they can paint nails with miniature Frankenstein faces on Halloween or decoupage fingertips with W-4 forms to celebrate tax season.
The spa’s aestheticians add expertise in skincare, whether that means softening signs of aging with facials or grooming brows with precision waxes. They also alleviate the physical signs of stress with leg massages, hot-stone treatments, and warm footbaths.
Nail technician Arianna Genini tops nails with artwork ranging from intricate patterns to strawberries and flowers. In addition to traditional acrylic nails, she can coat both real and faux nails with glitter so talons go on shimmering whether they're covered in polish or shamelessly nude. Arianna works inside Trésorle Salon and Spa alongside other hair, massage, and skincare specialists.
The gleaming mirrors of Leytha's Day Spa & Salon serve a simple purpose?to show patrons the results of the salon's hair artists, nail technicians, and skin specialists. Ornate frames and expertly placed lighting draw the eye to each of the mirrors, just as the elegant hairstyles, micro-bead extensions, and protein treatments can add drama to hair as it frames and highlights the face. The opulence of the mirrors is matched by the diversity of the beauty services: nail technicians transform hands with detailed manicure and pedicure services or add sparkle with nail art, rhinestones, or tiny, battery-powered LED signs that flash "I have pretty hands" over and over again.
