Spa at Manhattan Studios' meticulous phalange technician, Bonnie Triplett, kicks off one-hour mani-pedi sessions by shaping claws and gently pushing back encroaching cuticles. She then massages organic salts and lotions into mitts and paws to exfoliate and soften skin before slicking colorful coats of traditional polish onto finger keratin. For those looking to get more mileage out of their manicure, Bonnie will use CND Shellac polish, which won’t chip, smudge, or flake for up to 14 days—the amount of time it takes to get a passport to Alaska.
Behind a quaint yellow-brick storefront, owner Sallie Turner applies more than 20 years of styling experience to each new haircut or coloring treatment. She and her team work amid pink and beige walls, styling strands or beautifying façades with skincare treatments, spray tans, waxing, and nail services. They welcome appointments and walk-ins alike.
At Polished 2 Paint 2 Nails, nail artist Pleshette melts away stresses and strains from hard-laboring digits with soothing manicures and pedicures, made all the more indulgent with extras such as a gentle massage or exfoliating sugar scrub. Her skilled hands add coats of color, which can be made impenetrable by Gelish or Shellac polishes, which leave nails resistant to chips, fading, and late-night infomercial pitches. Pleshette is also joined by other nail techs and skin specialists. Together, they offer many other services, including facials, cosmetics, natural detox body wraps, all natural supplements, and firming creams.
Jerine McLean welcomes questions about her approach to massage therapy. She answers them over the phone or during appointments, where she combats muscular tension with three massage modalities. There’s long, gliding Swedish strokes to relax muscles, and concentrated deep-tissue kneads to relieve chronic pains. She also performs neuromuscular therapy—a holistic massage technique that encourages the body to heal itself. And to accommodate busy schedules, Jerine can sit clients down on a specialized ergonomic chair for abbreviated 15-minute sessions.
Rickelle Watson Jenkins, owner of My Beautiful BROWZ Waxing Studio, peels away unwanted hair using a gentle zinc oxide–based wax that's great for first-timers and those with sensitive skin or breakouts. For trickier areas, such as the bikini line, Rickelle cracks open a can of titanium blue hard wax fresh from the La Brea Wax Pits. She recalls what first attracted her to the beauty industry—the art of makeup—while touching up lashes, lips, and everything in between, and uses Dermalogica products to cleanse and exfoliate during facials.
