Unlike your social security number, you can change your hair color. That's the view at Nina's Salon & Day Spa, where a skilled staff specializes in both corrective color services and the application of fresh, vibrant hues. They provide on-trend cuts, too, and can adjust tresses' texture with perms, relaxers, or keratin straightening treatments. Working below the hairline, the beauty experts soothe clients with facials and massages, and treat fingers to manicures with regular or chip-resistant shellac polish.
A cozy black pedicure throne with a warm footbath and polish-lined manicure station furnishes Tammy’s Nailtique. Here, a technician transforms ravaged, misshapen, and rugged nails into well-shaped and vibrant digits with cleaning, grooming, and polishing. The nail salon offers mani-pedis, spa pedicures, and no-chip polishes, which add protection and longevity to nail services.
The Lather Lounge is a Paul Mitchell–focus salon that creates an atmosphere which allows clients to look and feel their best with a menu of indulgent hair services. Before opening her own salon, Lynn Griglin spent 2.5 years honing mane-management skills at Vidal Sassoon in Chicago, before working as an educator for Paul Mitchell, where she trained fellow stylists in the art of hair chromatics. Her equally dedicated staffers conjure pleasant visits by providing two complimentary services of the client's choice, such as a steam facial or neck massage, with each haircut, waxing, or skin treatment. In addition to snipping signature 'dos and shaping eyebrows into elegant arches or intimidating lightening bolts, The Lather Lounge contributes to several charitable causes, including cancer research and an organization that uses hair clippings to clean up oil spills.
