Anthony Paul Salon’s friendly beautifiers groom follicles and phalanges using deft hands and discerning eyes.

Stylistas paint locks with color, transforming hair with golden highlights or rich all-over hues ($45–$90). Never ones to let hair have all the fun, a legion of nail artists buff and polish nails with manicures ($20) and pedicures ($35). Upgrade to a Shellac manicure ($35) to pamper digits with luxe high-shine polish that can stay chip-free for up to 14 days or eternity, if you know a genie.

Once skin is thoroughly scrubbed and glowing, a skilled aesthetician will use radiance like a spotlight to aid in the performing of a detailed manicure with soothing essential oils and warm towels (a $15 value). During the manicure, finger-skin and nails will be buffed and shaped until they're smiling, at which point they will be treated to an additional hydrating massage and fresh coat of polish.
