The techs at She's Nailin It take pride in delivering a healthy mani-pedi experience that's free from germs and strong smells. That's why they practice hospital-grade sterilization techniques on their equipment, and why the salon uses a ventilation system that propels harsh odors outdoors, where pigs live. Once conditions are in order they begin their services, trimming and shaping nails before applying name-brand polishes from OPI, Essie, and more.

GearHeads Haircuts for Men puts gents at ease with leather La-Z-Boys, flat-screen TVs, and a man-themed man cave teeming with stylists who specialize in men's and boy's crops. Sports buffs lunge or touchdown-dance in front of TVs at each styling station as shearers scrub and cleave locks into distinguished styles over the course of 10- to 20-minute sessions. Craftsman toolboxes stockpile coloring elixirs for weaving fresh hues through grays during roughly 10-minute coif renovations. Each guest snacks on a complimentary soda and chips before staffers lather up and shave necks, leaving skin feeling less bristly than sandpaper at a porcupine convention.
The digit doctors at Magic Touch kick off beautifying 60-minute mani-pedis by trimming claws, cutting cuticles, and painting keratin in a vibrant polish in a color of the customer's choosing. Relaxing pedicures pretty up toenails and soothe tootsies tired from clogging marathons. In lieu of standard polish, the 45-minute Shellac manicures harness the durability and power of a special Shellac formula that dries quickly, resists chipping for up to two weeks, and leaves nails ready for fingerless oven mitts.
