At Iris Nail Salon, trained techs spruce up digits with manicures and pedicures. Turn over hands to the authority of a nail guru, who spends 45 minutes on the gel manicure, tenderly clipping nails, curtailing cuticles, and blanketing tips in a choice of long-lasting OPI Axxium, CND Shellac, or Orly polishes. Clients can give all limbs equal treatment with the 70-minute manicure and pedicure. While technicians file, buff, and tattoo on a desired hue, hot stones keep feet from spreading gossip to the hands. Alternatively, the spa pedicure infuses feet with a rejuvenating scent—such as lemon tree, lavender, or peppermint—as a tech evicts callous patches and slathers feet in a mud mask in preparation for rain dancing.
Luxury skincare regimens typically focus on the face, but for more than a decade, the technicians at Crystal Nails & Spa have instead pampered hands and feet. Feet soak up a foot-facial mask, tingle with baking-soda-exfoliation treatments, and luxuriate in green-tea soaks. Manicures are enhanced by add-ons such as shoulder massages, keratin-lotion gloves, and electric gloves that warm hands more efficiently than installing solar panels on them.
When they’re not adding polish, gel, or acrylics to nails, the staff can be found administering chair massages or ultrasonic-cavitation treatments, which reduce cellulite and make beautiful body shape.
Better Health Tanning and Nail Spa is a full-service spa and faux-sun space that offers a generous range of face-oriented services designed to beautify a variety of skin types. The glycolic peel, made of natural fruit acid, refines texture and tone; this treatment is ideal for those with acne or sun-damaged skin. The vitamin C peel, which is not recommended for sensitive skin, removes the top layer of epidermis in a thorough manner, which, in turn, lowers the visibility of wrinkles, fine lines, and rogue colorforms. Unlike conventional microdermabrasion treatment, which typically involves ousting the upper layer of skin by blasting a spray of tiny crystals, the diamond-tipped microdermabrasion makes use of a single, face-friendly suction tip studded with thousands of miniscule diamonds. This design negates the need for a potentially harmful blast, which leaves the face feeling silky smooth and well equipped for the shifting seasons.
Jolie Salon & Day Spa has a team of beauty gurus that's 70 strong, and not one has ended up there by chance. After graduating from cosmetology school, new stylists earn their place among their peers by completing an apprentice program overseen by master stylists. There, the up-and-coming embrace the salon's established philosophy of working for client's features and lifestyle. And that doesn't stop at the hair. Estheticians prescribe personalized facial treatments and chemical peels that incorporate everything from European seaweed blends to active blueberry extracts to improve each individual's tone and texture. When salves and balms aren't enough, technology steps in—microdermabrasion wands address signs of aging and submicronic oxygen facials push pure oxygen and vitamins deep into the skin.
Elsewhere throughout Jolie Salon & Day Spa's 6,000 square feet, massage therapists incorporate aromatherapy and hot stones into their Swedish, deep-tissue, and reflexology techniques. Reflexology can also be found in the technicians' nail treatments, which leave cuticles sparkling beneath the rounded track lighting. Exposed ductwork hangs from the high ceilings throughout, serving as a constant reminder of the spa's air-purification and exhaust systems, which whisk away chemical aromas and the speech bubbles of past conversations to leave the salon smelling fresh and naturally clean.
La Vita Bella's treatments include everything from Botox injections to spray tan to eyelash extensions. With a highly qualified team of specialists, clients can rest assured that they're in the hands of caring professionals, whether opting for a pedicure with peppermint essential oils or a facial with natural plant and marine extracts. The stylists are no slouches, either, with nine different color services that range from face-framing highlights to mind-bending tie-dye.
The stylists at Desmar Unlimited Beauty Salon welcome clients with all hair types to their wheelchair-accessible, multicultural salon. The staff trims, treats, and colors hair, glitzes up nails with chic polish, and removes unwanted hair with waxing services.
