Shellac Manicure in Paradise

Select Local Merchants

The Salon at Lakeside's floor-to-ceiling windows grant astonishing glimpses of a tree-lined lake as they pour natural light over dark-wood accents and stately blue walls. Standing behind rows of rich leather chairs, a team of stylists chisels away tired tresses to reveal contemporary looks that reflect each client's personal style. As clients savor a complimentary cocktail and surf on the salon's free WiFi, head experts melt tension and liberate brains of irritating pop songs with soothing scalp massages. After they contour manes with precise, fashionable cuts, they slather hair bearers in products by Schwarzkopf Professional, Enjoy Hair Care, and Nioxin.

When stylists aren't ramping up tints with highlights, multidimensional weaves, and all-over color, they straighten out frizz and add sultry waves to listless locks. Brides-to-be can rest easy on their big day, entrusting their façades to The Salon at Lakeside's artisans, who offer complimentary consultations, practice runs, and pre-ceremony sprints. When their transformations are complete, guests can pick up their vehicles from the complimentary valet service (Thursday–Saturday only) or lounge on the salon's relaxing outdoor veranda.

In 2002, beauty-school graduate Paula took everything she had—$5,000 and a dream of combining beauty services with holistic healing—and opened A Harmony Nail Spa. She even poured countless hours into hand-building many of the spa's unique furniture pieces and cyborg employees. Since the humble beginning, she and her fully licensed staff have pampered the minds and bodies of numerous clients with drastically different needs, from cancer patients seeking meditation classes to hardworking mothers overdue for an indulgent manicure. Upon entering the approximately 2,000-square-foot facility, guests waltz through the gift shop's aisles before entering one of the spa's specific treatment areas. In the nail studio, clients lounge on purple thrones shaped like purple hands and dip their feet into soothing pedicure sinks. A Harmony Nail Spa also houses a garden café with free beverages, an Internet cafe with free WiFi, and a meditation lounge with freedom to close your eyes without sleeping.

At Advanced Aesthetics Salon, guests find a med spa, a salon, and a boutique in one convenient location. There, a team of board-certified plastic surgeons and registered nurses oversee cosmetic injections and wield lasers to evict unwanted hairs or no-longer loved tattoos. Chemical peels are also administered under the umbrella of the med spa, resurfacing the skin with ingredients such as salicylic or lactic acids. Meanwhile, the salon sees to the tending of hair and nails, as skilled hands create formal ‘dos, craft new styles, and help correct the results of this year’s let-your-child-be-your-stylist day. After enjoying a facial or relaxing mani-pedi, guests can peruse a selection of clothing, accessories, and gifts to add a finishing touch to their new look, or stock up on brand-name hair and skincare products by brands such as Pureology, Obagi, and Skinceuticals to help maintain salon and spa-like results at home.

As a girl, Stevee Danielle would watch professional makeup artists transform her actress mother and her show-business cohorts into glamorous stars. That sparked her interest in the craft, and at the age of 20, she opened her own beauty salon, Stevee Danielle Hair and Makeup. She quickly built out a team of skilled, trained stylists and makeup artists to augment her own talents and form a well-coiffed laser-tag team.

Though Stevee and her crew tackle a slew of services—such as hair cutting and coloring and manicures—in her salon, they specialize in bridal hair and makeup done on location and beautify 8–20 bridal parties per week. Stevee has even appeared on The Morning Blend to discuss her successful traveling wedding services and the latest bridal trend of weaving sparklers into hair.
