SpaRenity Day Spa's nail techs pamper and polish appendages during relaxing manicures and pedicures. During the classic manicure, a technician shapes nails and curbs boundary-crossing cuticles, leaving fingertips shapely and smooth. Nail specialists then massage a moisturizing cream into hands and apply a choice of traditional polish. Alternatively, a cured coat of Shellac gel polish can protect fingernails with a glossy, chip-free coat of armor for up to two weeks. Prior to the classic pedicure, clients ascend a cushioned throne to soak feet in a softening bath. After treating nails and cuticles, staffers exfoliate soles, knead tension out of arches and suspension bridges, and daub nail beds with polish. Dainty curtains separate the pedicure room from the salon quarters, sequestering patrons in a space with richly padded armchairs and soft, golden light.
Owner and stylist Rachel Sanson leads an all-female team of beauty professionals, whose talent and expertise have helped the salon to win Readers' Choice awards from Mansfield Patch in 2012 and Wicked Local in 2011 and 2013. In addition to standard salon services, including cuts, styles, facials, and massages, the staff can keep its clients up to date on current trends with feather-lock extensions and color rubs, temporary dyes that easily wash out.

Licensed aesthetician Megan Elizabeth Majeran advises against ever looking into a magnifying mirror. No one will ever look flawless under the cruel gaze of that cosmetic appliance, she says, so why bother? This kind of advice is par for the course for Megan, who makes it her mission to make her clients feel good about their faces.
To accomplish this mission, Megan dedicates her full attention to each of her clients. Her calm, methodical approach helps them unwind as she applies Keyano all-natural products during her custom facials and peels. This emphasis on relaxation finds its reflection in the paper lamps, bamboo stalks, and palm plants strewn throughout the studio. Aromatherapy candles—handmade by the resident massage therapist—flicker and burn, filling the space with a fragrance as appealing as that of a fried chicken breast dipped in cologne.
The massage therapists at Wicked Awesome Massage customize their soothing sessions to the relaxation and wellness needs of each client's organ capsule. During Swedish massages, muscle mavens use oils or lotions to render gliding strokes, kneading, friction, and occasional tapping movements to ease muscle tautness and send morse-coded messages of calm. Firm but gentle pressure makes the Swedish style ideal for massage newbies, whereas deep-tissue methods utilize more intense pressure to target deeper muscles, help alleviate chronic tension, and break up scar tissue. Like a heated argument over whose turn it is to bathe the cat, some temporary soreness may result.
