When it comes to caring for fingers and toes, Pretty Natural Nails stays true to its name by exclusively using organic and eco-friendly products in all of its services. Owner Yolanda Sanchez ensures that her nail technicians are able to pamper their clients while using all-natural lacquers, lotions, and soaps. The salon's manicures and pedicures treat nails to a quick trim and polish, although the technicians can turn appointments into indulgent escapes by adding a soothing soak, an exfoliating scrub, or a tension-relieving massage while they softly whisper the lyrics to the client's favorite power ballad.
From inside Fresche Salon Decatur, Olivia Byrd draws on 20 years of experience and a specialty in natural nailcare to pamper fingers and toes. She uses a multistep process that's designed to leave skin feeling silky smooth and nails looking vibrant.
Natural Epiphany Salon focuses on one thing and one thing only—nails. Rather than distract themselves with a never-ending menu of hair, waxing, or piano-tuning services, owner Felicia Andrews and her staff focus all their beautifying know-how to make hands and feet as healthy as they can be. Sanitary pedicure bowls replace the jet tubs favored at many salons, which can harbor unseen bacteria or really tiny sharks. For healthy hands on the go, Natural Epiphany's express manicure shapes up thumbs in just 20 minutes. Those who have more time to spare can indulge in the salon's mani-pedi of the month, a rotating treatment that can include anything from rose petals and sea-salt scrubs to soothing herbal wraps.
The instructors at Masterpiece Mixers Paint & Party Studio supply the canvases, paints, and brushes, requiring visitors to bring only their creativity. At studios located around Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, and Massachusetts, they lead all-level painting classes that last up to 1.5 to 3 hours and focus on subjects ranging from the natural, such as birds and flowers, to still-life guitars, vases, and wine bottles. In some themed sessions, instructors also teach groups to paint abstract pieces or create their own variations on famous landscape paintings that, unlike the originals, can include dinosaurs. Some sessions follow a special date-night structure. At every location, the staff members encourage visitors to bring their own wine, beer, and snacks if desired.
Eyes are often the first thing you notice about a person, unless they've got an extra leg. Luckily, the aestheticians at Evidence Nail & Beauty Boutique specialize in making eyes more beautiful. Clients can solicit their expertise for a swift brow wax or for lash extensions, which promote volume without messy mascara. The salon also offers mani-pedi services, as well as spa princess days to pamper preteens.
Marbled floors and a tiled reception desk reflect the glimmer of retro patterned lamps as essential oils perfume the Sweet Serenity Beauty Bar's lobby. Veteran beauty worker Nicole oversees technicians who dab nails with gel and standard OPI polishes, offering the guarantee of a free touch-up if regular polish chips within three days or gel polish chips within seven.
The salon's technicians also beautify skin with organic green-tea products, whisk away hair with hypoallergenic French hard wax, and exfoliate orange rinds from faces with fruit-enzyme peels.
