At Nail Tech and More, nail-art specialists Dawn, Kandi, and Khym beautify digits with ornate embellishments ranging from Fimo decals to spinning beads. Swarovski crystals, Mylar, and glitter accents set nails a-sparkle, and 3-D designs and junk-nail options turn them into ornate, miniature sculptures. Technicians can even customize nail shape: stiletto nails taper off into fierce points, and corkscrew nails swirl off fingertips and into inconveniently stuck wine corks.
The trio also provides more traditional nailcare services. Manicures spoil hands and feet with treatments such as melted paraffin, hot stones, warm towels, and massages, and acrylic nails and Shellac gel polishes proffer long-lasting color. Alternatively, spray tans and waxing sessions pamper bodies all over.
The stylists and aestheticians at Bobbie Glen Hair Salon aim to provide clients with trendy, innovative, and high-quality care. Keratin smoothing treatments add luster to locks while eliminating frizz, and France Laure skincare products aid aestheticians in treating all skin types.
The appendage attendants at DeStress Express spruce-up weathered digits with multistep nail treatments. The Open-Minded manicure and pedicure begins by immersing parched limbs in a warm soak before nail technicians prune overgrown cuticles. A scrub-fueled massage smoothes ashen skin and polish deposits decorate hands with less hassle than having them reupholstered. The Healing Ritual manicure and pedicure adds an extra step, following the massage with a creamy mask that infuses skin with rich moisture.
As many parents of curious children can attest, it takes more than a pair of scissors and a spare half hour to become a salon artist. This is especially true when taking on one of the most time-consuming services a salon can offer: strand-by-strand hair extensions. The stylists at Luxury Tress The Salon specialize in this meticulous art, armed with their brand of Hott Links strand extensions, which are made of human hair in 32 colors for a natural look or a vibrantly colored statement. The stylists also revamp ‘dos with cuts, color treatments, and hair-restoration services to help heal locks damaged by the sun, an incredibly amateurish barber.
St. Spa's skilled staff use years of experience to swiftly eradicate unwarranted follicles from otherwise beauteous bodies. Prepare for an upcoming vacation with a bikini wax to rid swimsuit borders of straggling strands, leaving the surrounding area radiant, stubble-free, and less prone to scrutiny from pool-side pelt hunters. Or expunge pesky undergrowth completely with the Brazilian wax service, which distracts unmentionable fuzz with an entertaining samba before briskly uprooting every last follicular offender, leaving the skin silky and baby smooth. Regardless of your pruning preference, St. Spa provides a clean, comfortable setting in which to shed trepidations and burdensome skin threads while waxing poetic about a loyal, yet newly obsolete, set of tweezers.
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.
