Lime and mint walls accentuate white paper lanterns hanging in Dublin's Synergy Nail Spa, where a team of aestheticians and manicurists flutter about, sprucing up the digits and countenances of clients. Manicures and pedicures cascade across a menu of services, boasting a long-lasting Shellac mani that shrouds nails in bright CND polish alongside a paraffin wax treatment that leaves hands as smooth as a jazz quartet in a roller-skating competition. A hydropeptide facial imbues parched fa?ades with natural antioxidants, and eyelash extensions augment peepers with synthetic lashes that boost flirtatious flutter for up to eight weeks. To lengthen locks, highlight dull coifs, or redesign head topiary, Dublin's Synergy Nail Spa's stylist will wield her skills and an overturned stool at wild manes.
At Strictly French Nail Salon, owner Carina Campo leads a team of skilled nail techs who beautify clients’ finger and toe tips with decorative techniques such as glitter tips, pink and white acrylics, and a multitude of designs. Carina spearheaded the innovation of replacing white polished tips with white acrylic powder, which improves upon white polish by refusing to turn yellow or wear away. The salon’s more than 200 colors of glitter tips render nails as sparkly as a disco ball under the bright lights of police questioning, while shellac polish strengthens keratin with a gel-like finish that lasts for up to three weeks. Strictly French also houses Salon Rouge, a hair and skin outpost with a full menu of styling services.
Theresa Rougeau harnesses her 13 years of experience in the hair care industry to spruce up client’s hair inside Dublin's Synergy Nail Spa. Bright green walls and hanging paper lanterns accent the spa's main room, while a cozy private room just for hair services shrouds clients as Theresa cuts, colors, or texturizes with relaxers and straightening treatments. Wielding Donna Bella and Bliss human hair extensions, she can also add length and thickness to existing strands, tailoring extensions to each individual's hair color and need for rope alternatives during daily life.
Natalie B has been painting the nail world red for the past six years, bringing classic monochrome polishes and colorful, artistic designs to her client's fingers and toes. She specializes in decorating natural human nails, not acrylics or dewclaws, and uses products by OPI, Young Nails, and Gelish.
Stephanie decorates nails in a kaleidoscope of glittery and shiny hues from brands such as CND, OPI, and EZ Flow. She also covers extra-shy nails in sturdy acrylics, and her manicures and pedicures pamper the hands and feet attached to her clients? nails for a relaxing treatment.
Strictly French presents a menu of services for both everyday beautification and special events. Aestheticians skillfully wield clippers and dyes during haircut and hair-color appointments. Among the salon's many other specialties, 10 different types of skincare treatments freshen worn visages. They include customized facials, glycolic peels, and a specially designed "tune-up" for men's skin that harnesses the therapeutic power of ground-up footballs, even for men who have never heard of footballs. Special bridal services are also available, which can include updos for the bride, bridesmaids, and bride's mother.
