From within Unique Nails & Spa’s historic Pikesville location, owner Loretta Warfield-Davis leads her team in beautifying clients from head to brightly polished toenail. While guests recline on comfy beige massage chairs and enjoy complimentary refreshments, nail technicians furnish digits with acrylic sets and coats of OPI or China Glaze polish. Waxing pros tame overrun eyebrows into graceful arches, and aestheticians emphasize winks that have the power to change traffic-light signals with eyelash extensions. Facials and massages are also available. For male or female groups of up to 25, the salon hosts spa parties that combine relaxing mani-pedis with a BYOB policy.
Tete A Tete’s gray-blue walls and black-rimmed mirrors create a calming, elegant environment where stylists perform beautifying services on heads, faces, and hands. The staff trims hair, buffs cuticles, and sculpts eyebrows using high-quality products instead of the revitalizing tears of Hollywood celebrities. Judy Anslow, a skin specialist, cleanses faces with glycolic-acid treatments and helps customers relax with aromatherapy stone facials.
An Aveda-concept salon, Visual Changes caters to guests' individual needs by providing personalized pampering experiences. The style-boosting Aveda hair spa treatment, which includes a blowdry and style, will keep your follicles feeling loved and your loved ones feeling your follicles until you feel justified charging them a petting fee. The Caribbean therapy manicure pampers skin cells and nerve endings and the special occasion makeup application decorates newly brightened mugs with botanically based pigments, giving faces a cheerful change from clown paint.
Salon owner and NIC nail technician Katinna Hill never considers her job to be done. She enjoys watching her clients leave Pampered & Polished beaming with pride while toting gleaming nails, but she also continues to fine-tune her techniques through educational classes and workshops. Though trained by Young Nails, OPI, and Creative Nail Design at times throughout her more than 20-year career, Katinna still seeks out the latest industry trends and the legendary nail guide penned by Mona Lisa's beautician.
The licensed spa technicians at We Treat Feet Spa offer a variety of treatments for the feet and hands. The classic pedicure with Dr. 's Remedy polish uses a natural alternative to regular polishes, making it idea for clients with nail fungus, brittle or discolored nails, chemical allergies, or those who are pregnant. Nail extensions are available in silk tips or shellac, and customers can adorn their new nails with nail designs. Sore feet can take advantage of a foot bath and massage to relax.
This relaxing bastion of beauty offers an arsenal of soothing services, including hydrating facials, fuzz-banishing waxing, eyebrow tinting, and tress taming haircuts to primp up and polish valued patrons. Start de-stressing from the top with a stylish hair cut (women's from $45, men's from $25), or dip below the follicle border with a 45-minute Ayurvedic chocolate herbal facial, complete with warm steam, a customized mask, and a knot-melting massage ($70). A 30-minute essential oil wrap provides all-over skin smoothing with moisturizing warm oil, burnishing bodies with flowing strokes from an exfoliation brush to stimulate the lymphatic system and promote detoxification ($65).
