Just like many movie theaters, Nail Geeks gives you a choice: 2-D or 3-D? That is, when you come in to get nail art done, the staff can decorate your fingertips using swirling designs or shimmering add-ons, such as rhinestones, beads, and dots. This meticulous art form is a labor of love for the staff at Nail Geeks, who refer to themselves as "nail therapists." They put passion and full concentration into every service.
During their services, they utilize only all-natural skincare products, from lotions and exfoliating scrubs to masks for the hands and feet. They use CND's Brisa gel and shellac, which can resist chipping to preserve color. The nail therapists can also perform relaxing services in tandem with the mani-pedis, everything from hot stones to milk-and-honey foot baths to jazzy saxophone solos.
Exquisite Beauty Salon & Spa's seasoned beautifiers keep bods looking optimal with aesthetic maintenance ranging from haircuts to makeovers. Powered by L'Oréal's INOA hair color, their full and partial color and highlight treatments add new hues to heads without the use of ammonia, harmful odors, and melted crayons. Shellac polish coats nails in extra-strength color, helping mani-pedis resist chips for up to 14 days. Tech also perform addition by subtracting, nixing unwanted fuzz from brow to ankle with precision waxing services.
Leave it to best friends of 14 years to share everything, including a lifelong passion for beauty and a business partnership that allows them to explore that passion. That’s the case for Misty Hill and Julie Pellizzaro, who worked in the beauty industry together for 10 years before they opened Halo Hair Salon. Now, inside their own studio, the duo transforms appearances with hair-color services, makeup, lash extensions, and airbrush tanning. The point of these services is to help women exude the power of the salon’s mascot, the pinup girl, who symbolizes independence, confidence, and America’s love for affixing things to walls. Pellizzaro and Hill are also certified DreamCatchers hair-extension artists and educators for Sexy Hair Co.
At Onyx Salon, a talented staff of stylists and aestheticians renovate women's and men's faces, nails, bodies, and ?dos with masterfully executed services. Their haircuts, coloring services, and Coppola keratin smoothing treatments prompt an instant onslaught of double takes from onlookers and aimless hairnets. Brow and facial waxes de-fuzz mugs for professional makeup applications, and spray tans prep bodies for the beach or provide camouflage for pilfered Olympic gold medals. In addition to their regular beauty-boosting appointments, the stylists host glamour parties, where they gussy up guests with eye-catching hair and makeup before releasing them into the wild for bachelorette parties and nights on the town.
Envy Salon's team of beauty professionals touches up appearances through hair-styling and nail-grooming services. The staff shows off their expertise while performing mani-pedis that call on the power of a nail file and colorful polish to trim rogue cuticles and ho-hum keratin, and hair designers snip and streak strands to accent facial features. With any service, the staff will retouch makeup and add a lip-gloss shine by applying MAC products instead of having clients kiss a disco ball.
Large wood-framed mirrors rest against the salon’s rustic stone walls, which technicians use to test the strength and pitch of newly rounded nails. Before appointments, customers plop down on red leather couches and bask in the glow of lights strung through wooden planks overhead.
