Tangles Salon and Day Spa's multitalented Candice Smith bedazzles guests from head to toe with a comprehensive menu of beauty-bolstering services. During the approximately 45-minute mani-pedi, a warm-water soak softens up hands and feet before a lemon-verbena scrub jettisons expired skin. Candice then applies a tension-taming massage and dolls up nails with a shaping and polishing once reserved for Claymation cars.

All of Tangles’ pampering services take place in a private room, where beneficiaries are free to sip complimentary tea, coffee, or wine to show off polished nails with exaggerated pinky raises.
