Inspired by the flash and luxury of LA, Envi Nails Spa brings trendy West Coast nail design to the Midwest. The spa?s highly trained nail technicians brighten digits with a rainbow of OPI polishes and more than 195 different hues of Shellac polish, and their sparkle- and rhinestone-studded nail art includes themed designs to celebrate any event or holiday, from Christmas to Tax Day. Before painting nails, the staffers pamper appendages with treatments incorporating organic flower oils and minerals from the Dead Sea. Human Touch massage chairs, surrounded by softy lit alcoves and sleek wooden decor, bring coddling treatments to a zenith.
A step inside Beauty Lane Salon & Tanning leads to an airy studio, where natural sunlight streams through windows to illuminate blond-wood floors, leather furnishings, and red accent walls. With this modern space for their inspiration, the stylists here transform their clients' hair through trendy cuts and bold applications of color—be it an all-over hue or the unexpected touch of bright blue feather extensions. Aestheticians, meanwhile, buff and polish nails to a new shine, and technicians oversee tanning sessions in stand-up airbrush booths and a UV tanning bed.
A crew of beauty and spa experts scurry about Tufts of Hair Beauty Salon, cutting and styling hair, polishing nails, and massaging tired muscles. By customizing facials, the pros lavish individualized attention onto every complexion, whether it?s struggling with dryness and irritation or battling oiliness. Tanning services ensure that clients leave the studio sun-kissed and soft.
At Blink Boutique, lashionistas Amy Young and Jessica Furnish enhance the appearances of professionals, athletes, busy moms, and everyone in between with eyelash extensions. The steady-handed pair outfits eyes with various types of semi-permanent looks, including full sets that add up to 200-plus lashes to each side and come in styles ranging from everyday to glamorous. Amy and Jessica also offer specialty lashes, such as Siberian mink, as well as bridal lashes and party lashes for nights on the town.
The stylists at Mitchell's Salon & Day Spa have beautified Cincinnati-area clients for the past 30 years. During that time, the staff has grown to more than 400 employees across five locations. They've also garnered several press mentions, including their most recent victory in The Knot's Best of Weddings 2013. These accolades are all possible because of the meticulous care that the salon pours into both its posh ambiance and soothing treatments. Stylists perfect 'dos with haircuts and smoothing keratin treatments, and aestheticians perform antioxidant facials, which make the skin more resilient against hazards such as environmental damage and cheek-pinching aunts.
It’s all about color at Prestige Nails & Tans, Inc.—you can give your skin a sun-kissed glow or get glossy hues for your fingernails. For the former, the salon has 12 European high-intensity tanning machines, which yield dark, natural tones that mimic a day at the beach or an apprenticeship as a campfire marshmallow.
For nail services, Prestige’s technicians utilize Tammy Taylor, OPI, and CND products. The result: perfectly manicured acrylic, Shellac, or natural nails. During European Touch spa pedicures, clients relax in Relaxor heated massage chairs while their feet indulge in a warm, soothing soak. Prestige’s nail techs can also turn their attention to children for birthday parties, which foreshadow the pampered luxury that comes with being an adult.
