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.
Black-and-white portraits pop against walls of silver damask. An antique love seat sidles up to a zebra-printed chest. A chandelier's light glints against a table's gilded filigree. Although The Beauty Dive's historic-cottage setting radiates all things vintage, there is nothing dated about the pampering that occurs at the able hands of owner Yvette Reese and her staff. Yvette suffuses her studio with an atmosphere of creativity, encouraging her stylists and aestheticians to heed their own artistic inspiration as they forge modern hairstyles, eye-catching nails, and captivating cosmetic applications. To keep the image artisans up-to-date on the latest techniques, industry experts arrive every few months to lavish the staff with hands-on training and lessons in split-end psychology.
As stylists sculpt coifs to flatter individual faces, pedicure clients melt into oversize armchairs and bask in the skills of a master Shellac nail technician, who dips feet in fresh bowls of lavender-infused water before refining nails with sterile implements, unused files and buffers, and Opi and CND polishes. The beauty experts wield serums by Eminence Organics, Rusk, and Kevin Murphy, each of which are available for purchase to aid at-home primping. Between services, clients sip on wine, champagne, and martinis as they browse the boutique's collection of accessories and apparel from Johnny Was and 4 Love and Liberty, savoring a better union of sparkles and spirits than the wedding-ring speakeasies of the 1920 diamond prohibition.

Aesthetician Emilia DiRaddo—a self-proclaimed "hands-on skin detective"—begins each facial treatment by assessing the client’s skin. She uses more than 30 years of experience to carefully examine the skin’s tone, texture, and shape-shifting abilities. Then, DiRaddo assembles a lineup of exfoliating enzymes, scrubs, essential oils, and masks that address the individual’s skincare needs. Along with facials and acne treatments, she offers Revitalight LED light therapy to reduce redness and improve skin tone, and waxing services to remove unwanted hair from the face or body.
Shear Envy Salon’s trio of trained stylists transforms untamed tresses into smooth ’dos during Brazilian blowout treatments. During the eight-step, roughly 90-minute process, nimble hands apply shampoos, solutions, and serums designed to coat the hair shaft in keratin proteins, smoothing disheveled strands without exposure to jazz sax solos. A final blow-dry seals the stylist’s lock straightening in place for 10–12 weeks. Though Brazilian blowouts can often render wavy hair stick-straight, the treatment will allow curly hair to keep some of its curvature, ensuring that stray strands can still function as corkscrew stand-ins during hard-up wine tastings. Shear Envy Salon augments its straightening services with an abundance of digital amenities. Patrons can conduct pressing business midshampoo by connecting to the salon’s free WiFi network via smartphone or turn eyes toward wall-mounted high-definition TVs broadcasting cherished TV programs, such as conflict-free football and joint sessions of Congress baking brownies.
