Instead of withholding the secrets to healthy nails, the expert staffers at Polish Nail Bar do the unthinkable—they dispense them freely to all who sidle up to the black manicure bar that doubles as a social hub. Owner Crystal Davis and her team of technicians get to know each client personally during sessions by chatting freely as though they were catching up with long-lost friends or robot friends that were dropped in water. Each nail treatment occurs in steps, with manicurists tagging in and out for various parts of the procedure to apply their unique expertise where it counts. Mavala, a cuticle cream made in Switzerland, helps fingers and toes replenish much-needed vitamins and amino acids and delicate ghosts of scent drift from essential oils and jojoba oils. After clients leave, ready to raise their hands during secret-mission briefings with newfound pride, treatment areas and equipment are wiped down with hospital-grade disinfectants that evict lingering germs and odors.
Envy Salon & Spa's mission is to breathe new life into its clients' images. In the salon, stylists refine and re-imagine hairdos by way of cuts, coloring, and amino fusion smoothing treatments. Amidst the nail treatments are spa mani-pedis, which are a relaxing way to get your nails painted and your toes counted. Trained staffers also apply custom facials that address specific issues on the face, thereby restoring soft textures and colors that advertise health and vitality. Massage therapists soften tense muscles and instill feelings of relaxation with focused and deliberate techniques during Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massages.
Each staff member at All About You Salon & Day Spa kicks in some specific expertise, allowing them to work together in the pursuit of beauty and health. Stylists cut and color hair and mold manes into classy updos before patrons go to important photo shoots or get their heads stuck through the bannisters at the White House. Aestheticians armed with wax remove unwanted patches of fuzz and wield gentle chemical solutions to even out skin tones during peels. Drawing on five distinct modalities, including deep tissue and reflexology, massage therapists elicit happy sighs. A weight-loss specialist visits the salon once a week to help customize fitness programs for patrons.
Licensed massage therapist Lisa Pinson uses her skill in a variety of massage modalities to craft customizable sessions for her clients. As soft music permeates a quiet, private room, Lisa uses Swedish, deep-tissue, and specialty raindrop-therapy techniques to purge bodies of pain or stress. Raindrop therapy combines the soothing strokes of Swedish massage with reflexology and aromatherapy using nine different essential oils. Lisa also unties chronically knotted muscles with therapeutic massage, which allows her clients to relax and recharge their batteries at a complimentary battery-charging station.
