At Centre Pointe Nails & Spa, techs go beyond basic foot pampering with pedicures that include a complimentary shoulder massage and hot neck pillow. Experts at curbing cuticle overgrowth creeping up on finger and toe tips, they can also safeguard each nail’s newly adopted shine with long-lasting gel polishes by OPI, Shellac, and LeChat, or a thick coat of Armor All. Fingertips looking for extra flair can also top natural nails with detailed, acrylic overlays decked out in designs that can include everything from cheetah spots to tiny tuxedos.
NV Hair Studio is many things at once. For some patrons, it's a trendy hair studio, where stylists sculpt elegant up-dos and install full weaves. For others, it's a relaxing day spa where aestheticians perform facials designed to address issues ranging from wrinkles to acne. And for male clients, NV Hair Studio harkens back to the classic barbershops of yore, treating gents to the types of hot lather shaves and guy-friendly manicures once enjoyed by cowboys in the old west.
While surrounded by exposed brick and mint-green walls, Cindy Jones cossets clients with products by Pureology, Dermalogica, and OPI, delivering services that range from cuts and styles to perms and weaves. Elements Salon also keeps a kitchenette stocked with coffee, tea, water, soda, and cookies to refresh waiting clients and ward off vengeful demi-gods, who hate the smell of refreshments.
Done in tasteful cream and beige, Salon Estique at Uptown Plaza salon offers a signature, somewhat exclusive Bumble and bumble Aveda Invati Treatment, though even the most basic services include a thorough consultation, scalp treatment, light massage and product consultation. Spiral wraps and perm come either curly or straight, while color corrections can make anyone a natural beauty after the three to five hour service. There’s something for everyone, such as men’s grooming, children’s cuts and manicures, and even teen facials, all of which can be found at the salon’s bright, wood-lined space on Camelback Road. Extra touches here also impress, such as complimentary bang trims, neck trims and styling lessons between regular appointments.
Let's say that the nail techs at Martino Hair, Nail & Skin Salon perform 20 mani-pedis a day, six days a week.

But Martino Hair, Nail & Skin Salon does more than imbue guests' nails with a touch of glamour. The salon's beauty experts wax away unwanted hair and tailor facial treatments to individuals' unique skincare needs, and the stylists artfully trim and style locks. With makeup applications, aestheticians can enhance clients' features?or transform a glum scarecrow into a sassy dinner date.
Though Sharron Nicklas is a certified lash stylist, you won't want the multiple tiers of extensions that other studios boast. That's because she only stocks Xtreme Lashes, a line she's trained with and believes in. Inside her private studio, she plays the role of artist in creating lash lines that accentuate eyes without overwhelming the face. Sharron also performs mani-pedis and brow tinting.
