Jami Morrell at Nails Now mixes colors and artistic techniques to craft nail designs that will stand out in crowds. Nail art ranges from swirls and geometric shapes, to the stars and stripes of the American flag. Jami's pedicures pamper clients with stone massages, sugar scrubs, and hot towels. She also applies acrylic nails, using only American brands and ensuring safe, high-quality applications.
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.
When not tending to patients with misaligned spines and muscle pains, chiropractor Dr. Roger Blinder can be found overseeing the practice’s laser center. Here, technicians remove unwanted body hair via advanced laser technology that’s designed to permanently destroy follicles at the root, a more effective removal process than staring at the hair until it falls out.
Aesthetician and owner Elena uses her skills from training in Romania and more than 30 years working in Manhattan to help beautify clients’ skin at her elegant, European-styled spa. Marble-clad walls and chateau-evoking sconces set the stage for seaweed wraps and sea-salt scrubs that help tighten and invigorate skin, along with glycolic-acid treatments and facials. Her european facial does not involve tattoos of random French, German, and Spanish words; rather, it includes a steaming with chamomile herbs and a natural vegetable-peel exfoliant to leave skin glowing and more youthful.
Boar’s Head and National Deli meats look right at home next to the locally sourced produce at Sunny Produce & Deli. On the main floor, crates showcase vegetables such as roma tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and corn and fruit such as limes, navel oranges, and Fuji apples. The deli serves up meats and cheeses by the pound and also crafts fresh hot and cold sandwiches in-house. Because sugar is necessary for energy and sincere apologies, a bakery serves up tasty treats such as chocolate-drizzled croissants and muffins.
Within a clean studio decorated with potted plants and teal walls, The Waxing Company's team of estheticians keep skin smooth from the forehead to the feet. They remove unwanted hair using organic hard wax that’s made in the United States, leaving skin feeling satin smooth.
