Angela's Nail & Spa's eponymous owner greets every salon guest with a smile, manning the finger-revamping fort as staff technicians transform nails into 10-piece hand and foot accessories. Both levels of mani-pedi include the application of a conditioning oil to reduce cuticle invasions while a shaping reworks nails into rounded arches, squared tips, or glowing orbs designed to foster heartfelt moments with estranged extraterrestrials.
Perfect 10 Services’ staff of beauty gurus pampers and prettifies male and female guests with nail, waxing, and makeup services. Trained technicians carefully eradicate facial fuzz and body bristles with waxing treatments, and permanent makeup applications fashion rosy cheeks without the pain of constant pinching or the discomfort of coating them in strawberry jam. Nail beds are nurtured during relaxing mani-pedis, which can be customized with paraffin-wax treatments, personalized nail art and airbrushing, and gel enhancements.
Rainbow World Nail decks out finger shields with high-quality products by brands such as OPI, Color Club, and Essie. The modern nail salon also offers an array of high-tech equipment such as warm UV lights for fast nail drying, pedicure chairs that self disinfect themselves, and gas-powered nail clippers.
Angel Tips has clearly built a fan base since opening its first location in 1996—the business has expanded to more than 60 locations in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Perhaps it's because each licensed staff member formally trains at the Angel Tips training center in Stamford, Connecticut, ensuring that each location employs skilled nailcare and waxing technicians. Their services include pedicures infused with fresh lemon, manicures with hand and shoulder massages, and upgraded manicures with durable, chip-resistant gel polish. They also perform facials and body treatments, such as a signature body scrub, which begins with a sauna session, continues with a dip in a jacuzzi, and finishes with an essential-oil massage.
Hairstyling runs in the Vecca family. Giuseppe Vecca, co-owner of Salon Vivace with Joey Mannino, emigrated from Italy to the United States with his scissors in hand. He passed down his skills to his granddaughter Daniella, who works with him at the salon. She and the rest of the staff believe it's possible to keep hair healthy without harming animals, which is why they tame frizz using the Zerran RealLisse vegan hair-smoothing system. In addition to cuts and color, the stylists lengthen hair with SoCap hair extensions made from 100% natural human hair, which creates an enhancement as undetectable as a penguin crashing a wedding.
After 19 years honing her skill at other local hair studios, Doreen has opened up her own full-service salon in the heart of Addyman Square. Amid leather furniture and purple accents, Doreen and her highly trained stylists can transform tresses with Redken hair products or deftly shape nails with custom nail services. Clients can also solicit a personalized makeup session for an upcoming wedding, prom, or competitive eating contest.
