Flat-screen TVs pipe in professional-grade celebrity faces as nail techs work to gussy up fingertips and toe tops. Skilled aestheticians exfoliate and renew complexions with signature facials and decorate digits with sleek color polish. Rows of plush and cozy pedicure chairs invite guests to take a load off with the help of amenities, such as ceramic soaking basins, padded leather cushions, and gas-powered nail files.
During Hilda Dickerson's 11-year stint working at her friend's salon, she dreamt of owning her own place. Now that dream is a reality. In the comfort of New Beginnings the Salon, Hilda and her personal team of skilled stylists transform tresses with products by Redken, Biolage, and Matrix. But hair services are just the beginning. Clients can stretch out their arms for long-lasting OPI gel manicures or big, long hugs, or they can say goodbye to built-up grime with restorative facials. Aestheticians further ensure smooth skin by removing unwanted facial fuzz with a specialty wax.
The spa staff operates on the philosophy that beauty and wellness result from the body's sense of balance, and its freedom from impurities. This approach leads technicians and aestheticians to use natural and organic products, as well as noninvasive mechanical processes, when they rejuvenate faces and bodies. They specialize in eyelash extensions long enough to reach for healthy produce, and in nonsurgical face-lifts that use microcurrent, LED, or galvanic current. Other clinical facial therapies include chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and the staff is also skilled in waxing.
The cosmetologists, certified wellness coaches, and aestheticians at Inspired Hair Studio bestow confidence on their clients through beauty services and wellness services for the whole body. Hairdos can gain body and bounce with perms, length with extensions, or silkiness with smoothing keratin treatments and relaxers. Just below the hairline, custom facials deep clean and gently exfoliate. Bodies are contoured and detoxed with hydrating wraps. Nail techs pamper hands and feet meticulously with customized and signature spa treatments.
The technicians at St. Tropez Nail Spa stay abreast of advancements in mani-pedi science. In addition to applying acrylic nails, they paint on chip-resistant shellac as an alternative to flakier polishes. They also embellish fingers with NexGenNails, which avoid the nail-bed damage caused by certain acrylics and the distinctive smell caused by painting your nails with expired ketchup. Their services encompass skin treatments as well; a leg mask and exfoliation top off the spa pedicure, and facials and permanent-makeup applications round out the spa menu.
At Tim Jon Salon, stylists recharge their client’s looks with a bevvy of salon and day spa services. Haircuts kickstart beautifying makeovers that are complemented by color treatments and Brazilian Blowouts from products by Kerastase and Shu Uemura. In the day spa, technicians perform waxing and deluxe mani-pedis as well as eyelash extensions. The stylists also offer formal up-dos and bridal consultations to help brides prepare for their big day.
