At The Nail Place's digit masters retouch nails in private suites, applying long-lasting manicure and pedicure treatments over the course of two hours. During the no-chip manicure, gel and vibrant polish is lamp-baked into a finger ornament that is both vivid and long lasting, much like the memory of seeing an elderly professor eat an entire football. Neither the cruel slaps of closing doors nor the scratches of glancing blowdarts will dent or scratch the no-chip manicure once applied. After feet receive a full cuticle and nail pruning, they can luxuriate with a soothing, thorough sole massage and clean themselves with the nail buffer and file provided to all clients.
Voted Favorite Tanning Salon by the Modesto Bee readers for the past four years, Bronze Body Tanning Salon & Spa showers its glow-seeking clientele with the latest in sun-less shading technology. For a more permanent pigment, one month of tanning atop the salon's regular beds darkens the dermis with roughly 100% more efficiency than a copper slip-n-slide. Each tan-getting tryst lasts 23 minutes, but in-booth accouterments––including cooling fans, radios, and signing palm trees––help pass the time.
Four sisters with a shared love of cosmetology cut, color, and coif hair at Versailles Salon & Spa. Along with standard highlights and coloring, they also try trends such as dip coloring with pink or blond dye for a fun new look for the warmer months.
Elegant Image Skin & Laser Spa brings together an eclectic team of cosmetic-nurse specialists, stylists, nail techs, and certified massage therapists to pamper and prettify patrons with a full menu of spa and salon services under one roof. Nurse-administered beauty injections such as Botox and fillers aim to smooth out fine lines, and spa facials and microdermabrasion treatments aim to imbue skin with the elasticity of a spandex-wearing gummy bear. Massage therapists coax out tension with soothing Swedish or deep-tissue strokes, and techs cheer up extremities with manicures, pedicures, and spot-on impressions of Rodney Dangerfield's toes. In the full-service hair salon, stylists spritz patrons' topknots with professional products from brands such as Paul Mitchell and Redken as they update outmoded ‘dos into chic looks.
