Cheetah spots, Mondrian squares, rainbows, and slices of watermelon bedeck fingertips beautified by Angela Nails And Spa's trio of aestheticians, who lavish guests with an array of services for nails and skin. As music wafts through the softly lit salon, raised baby-blue pedicure chairs dangle guests' feet into basins swirling with warm water. Layers of wax whisk away unwelcome hair, and facials rejuvenate weary complexions. At a vanity table covered in palettes, powder puffs, and pots of rouge, the resident makeup artists put on best faces for brides, groups of bridesmaids, and teenagers en route to black-tie SAT-testing sites.
Aora Salon & Spa's baby-blue walls surround a studio-like space with contemporary furnishings and modern artwork. Within the salon, stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists customize their treatments to address clients' goals and concerns. The beauty pros offer a full spectrum of salon and spa services—they do hair, massage, nails, skincare, and waxing.
Murals of palm trees and azure waters surround the pedicure chairs and manicure stations at Waterford Nails & Spa, as if immersing clients in a miniature beach vacation. As technicians groom cuticles and coat nails with OPI or gel polish, aestheticians also keep eyebrows from growing into bangs with waxing treatments and cleanse complexions with facials.
A stint at Venchi Day Spa is like a retreat to a country manor. Natural light slips through royal red curtains onto Victorian chairs and carved wooden tables. Candelabra-style sconces also provide ample illumination, which cascades across aestheticians administering facials and decorating nails with long-lasting shellac polish. They work beneath shelves that also bear wax for removing unwanted hair. The spa even employs a licensed massage therapist, whose soothing bodywork offers an escape from the daily stress of working in an office or going around town to flip over pennies that don’t have the lucky side up.
Nail technician Iesha turns her clients' nails into miniature works of art at Blessing Touch Nails & Spa. Zebra stripes, stars, flowers, and glitter delicately splatter across keratin canvases, evoking the owners' tastes and individual styles. Iesha's manicures and pedicures also help clients relax, as they come accompanied by chair massages, peppermint foot scrubs, and paraffin treatments that leave skin soft and glowing.
