Setting up shop within Solar Beach Tanning, Hair, and Nails, seasoned nail technician Kassie Sunkler spruces up hands and feet with a variety of nail services. Express mani-pedis tend to hoofs on the go, getting them in and out of the pedicure chair in record time, whereas those with an afternoon to spare can indulge in detailed pampering, such as indulgent spa mani-pedis or acrylic applications enhanced with glitter polish. Kassie's Nails also does gel manicures and can add gel polish to pedicures for an added fee, imbuing toes with a specially formulated nail topper that, like some college commencement speeches, can last for up to 21 days.
Eschewing salons cluttered with chemical-laden products, The Eco Salon supplies earth-friendly beauty services that emphasize local, natural products. The salon’s interiors greet guests with whimsical environs of black leather salon chairs and ornately framed mirrors offset by pink-and-white-striped walls. The signature european facial takes place in The Eco Salon's dedicated treatment room, where a skin specialist applies an all-natural French green-clay mask. An aromatherapy pressure-point massage alleviates stress, as the scent of Chilean rose-hip-seed oil encourages relaxation. The facial aims to give skin a more toned, tightened appearance and a glow radiant enough to microwave an entire frozen ham.

Some of the salon’s skilled techs are also experts in specialty nailcare, including caring for ingrown toenails or the feet of people with diabetes.
