The tall white Doric columns that flank the entrance to Diamond Salon and Spa give a not-so-subtle hint to the similarly stately interior. This Chestnut Hill establishment, flowing with natural light from the large, curved front windows, keeps an understated tan-and-cream color scheme, with lots of comfortable seating and a few leafy touches. Appealingly room, Diamond Salon and Spa provides a waiting area, a section dedicated to manicures and pedicures and a massage/waxing space, discretely tucked away behind doors. Diamond Salon carries Dermalogica Skincare products and the Youngblood mineral makeup line, which the salon uses exclusively for its facials and applications. Appointments are welcomed here seven days a week, with limited walk-in availability.
In a warm-yet-airy atmosphere of stone walls and high ceilings – plus exposed beams for the fully rustic effect – Spa Elysium in Chestnut Hill will take care of your hair, face and nail needs. Brighten your look with hair color or highlights at this sunny shop, or peruse the complete menu of manicure, pedicure and facial options, including the signature Elysium Radiance facial. Each are perfect pampering treats, while a detoxifying seaweed wrap nourishes and soothes the entire body, for a more rejuvenating experience. The area near the spa’s entrance is given over to a retail section with artful greeting cards, scented candles and colorful, trendy jewelry, plus hair care products by the likes of Aveda and Bumble & bumble.
The goals of Chez Raina Salon's experienced staff are to build strong relationships with clients and provide them with exceptional beauty services. Inside the highly sanitized salon space, nail technicians doll up digits with mani-pedis and paraffin treatments. Stylists consult with their clients before cutting and highlighting manes to create whole new hairdos. The staff's aestheticians use waxing services and facials to soften the skin until it's smoother than Boyz II Men lounging in a pool of baby oil.
On Ridge Avenue’s merchant strip in East Falls, Koco Nail Salon and Wax Studio infuses a bit of whimsy into the usual salon setup. Manicures are given clever names such as the Limoncello, which features a citrus scrub, and the Koco Truffle, with a chocolate scrub and a paraffin treatment. For the pedicure called the Arnold Palmer, geared toward athletes, the lucky recipient gets a green tea and lemon footbath and a brown-sugar scrub. There are numerous options to get your nails bedazzled – Swarovski crystals, anyone? – though less flashy treatments might include facials. This friendly spot, with its clean white space accented by greens and browns, even offers an array of waxing choices from eyebrows to Brazilians.
At Rejuve Nail & Skin Day Spa, the technicians, aestheticians, and massage therapists work together to pool their expertise and offer head-to-toe pampering. Oversized black pedicure chairs stand in a row as guests kick back and a technician tops their toes in vibrant polish colors. Customers can also opt for hot-stone massages, which help melt away tension in muscles after playing catch with a stockless anchor, and a pumpkin exfoliating facial that helps refresh skin.
Family is essential to Nbeauty Inc's eight stylists.

Their hair services range from cuts and colors to defrizzing Brazilian blowouts. Additionally, a menu of nail services equip clients with the eye-catching enhancements and acrylic nails needed to distract the competition during juggling contests.
