Helmed by a talented cast of nine hairstylists and one nail technician, Shear Excitement Salon cloaks clients in beauty from head to toe. Stylists sling products by Matrix, Chi, and Sexy Hair across strands as they lop off overgrown lengths and add depth and dimension with lustrous color treatments. Meanwhile, in the nail corner, nail tech Lee pampers hands and feet with indulgent manicures, pedicures, and fur-lined sandals, and embellishes digits with colorful OPI polish or no-chip Shellac gel. The styling staff also gussies up features with expert airbrush makeup applications and eyelash extensions, and strips away excess fuzz with waxing treatments for the face and body.
Phenom-A-Nails boasts more than 15 years in the beauty industry, doling out beauty-ameliorating services including waxing, hairstyling, and nail polishing. A professionally trained nail technician will file, buff, and clean extraneous colors from all 27 fingers and toes to kick off the pampering 90-minute mani-pedi. A soothing hand massage expels tension buildup caused by high-fiving addictions, and a finishing polish accentuates nails' newfound shapes with a shiny splash of color before dryers lock in new shades. Salon owner Sheri Brown further creates a calming ambiance by pumping the salon's confines full of clean air, saving sensitive schnozzles from nail products' infamously bad taste in perfume.
The varnish artists at Tokyo Nails work in a variety of media, including gel, acrylic, and regular old nail polish. They skillfully trim and shape nails or soften paws with lotions, paraffin dips, or oven mitts full of petroleum jelly. Children are welcome at their salon—they even have a special menu of services for tykes aged 10 and younger.
