Rose Nails' technicians revamp natural and faux nails with OPI and Essie polishes. As clients unwind in leather treatment chairs, staffers administer spa mani-pedis and paraffin treatments featuring an array of polishes, from traditional French 'cures to intricate nail designs including flowers, checkered patterns, and portraits of the client's pet's favorite checkered flowers. Rose Nails’ staff also tends to faux nail coverings with services capped by acrylic and gel nails.
Beneath the pendant lamps casting a warm glow over the salon, stylists at Profiles Hair Studio and Spa pamper clients with hair services, waxing, and nail treatments. Stylists cut men's, women's, and children's hair in addition to keratin treatments and permanent waves. Meanwhile, nail technicians coat fingers and toe tips with glossy polish, long-lasting Shellac, or full sets of gel or acrylic-gel nails during regular manicures or soothing reflexology pedicures. Additionally, a full menu of threading and waxing services keeps brows arched and skin smooth for swimsuit season.
For mother-daughter team Margarita Soto and Isabel Osorio, establishing Isabella Hair, Nails & Spa has been their chance to create a tranquil haven for women, men, and kids to escape the chaos of the outside world. The gold color scheme that runs throughout the beauty shop sets customers at ease as a diverse staff of local and international stylists—Columbia-native Margarita boasts more than 25 years of beauty experience—keep hair stylish with roller sets, color treatments, and precision cuts, and aestheticians coax out the radiant glow of each client's complexion with fruit- and multivitamin-infused facials. To further relax patrons, the salon also offers tension-dissolving massages.
Spherical lights hang like illuminated snowballs over each private manicure station, casting a soft glow on peach-colored walls, a woodland print, and white tile floors. Amid these modern accents, skilled aestheticians deftly shape and decorate nails with a wide spectrum of color polishes. They also accentuate eyes with lash extensions, nix unflattering fuzz with wax, and scour pores with a rejuvenating facial.
Kindle & Boom's staff of savvy style savants provides a full range of salon services in a professional, contemporary atmosphere.

A base color ($60+) with partial highlights ($85+) brightens dim-witted locks, and after long road trips, nothing cleans dirty mindshields better than the European facial ($80). If you're looking for the coiffure equivalent of orthodontia, opt for a Japanese straightening treatment ($100+/hour). Brazilian waxing ($40) brings sunny skies to the central region, and even more southerly services such as full-leg waxes ($60) and pedicures ($40) impress short adults and tall babies.
