With a kaleidoscope of hues at the ready, Star Nail & Spa?s technicians paint the rainbow onto clients? nails. Technicians use regular or Shellac polish, which protects nails from chips and scratches when clients are washing the dishes or petting their pet cacti. Manicures and pedicures include such pampering amenities as a foot soak, moisturizer, and nail buffing.
At Michael Robert Salon & Spa, a team of 10 continually educated stylists and aestheticians boosts beauty with modern hairdos, gentle waxing, rejuvenating facials, and ear piercing. Guests plunk down in cushy chairs for deep-conditioning treatments and hair-coloring services by Redken, Wella, and Clairol, while facials turn to Principessa salves to treat skin woes such as blemishes, fine lines, and acne. Heated blankets and essential oils cosset weary bodies during cellulite wraps that help smooth skin dimples and melt away inches faster than lighting a ruler on fire.
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.
Bright-red accent walls and chocolate-brown furniture create a warm ambiance at L'Rose Salon. Here, meticulous stylists deliver services in the form of haircuts, highlights, and updos, and employ renowned Wella color products when enhancing strands with new hues. Keratin treatments leave hair smoother than a bowl of pudding at a jazz club, and makeup applications create polished looks for special occasions.
At Stella Nail and Spa, a staff of aestheticians and licensed massage therapists lavishes clients with manicures, pedicures, facials, and ache-alleviating chair massages. During mani-pedis, beauticians glamorize nails with OPI gel polishes, including red, yellow, and green patterns for clients seeking employment as traffic lights. The team also performs eyelash extensions and visits clients' houses for parties.
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.
