While guests recline in chocolate-colored pedicure chairs, the seasoned nail artists at Pro Nails & Hair Fashion pamper and polish digits into stylish accessories. Both options begin with the classic buff, file, and cuticle grooming, creating matching tensomes before scrubbing away hardened heels and absorbed socks. Staffers then soothe each digit with a mini massage and bedeck nails in bright OPI polish. Signature pedicures embellish the spa version with a sea-salt scrub, which sloughs off rough soles before a treatment mask seals in moisture for soft, velvety feet. Two nail designs then bedeck toes, adding a decorative floral flourish to tootsies without attempting to make shoes out of wallpaper.

Q&A with Rolyne, Owner And Esthetician

The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
Our interior is a mix of soft relaxing colors such as blues and green and white. It is more of a home feeling and everyone enjoys the relaxing easy listening music that is played. The spa is very quaint and homey.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a client?
That our services are really customized to each person and that we have such a extensive menu for a small place that offers services that fits for each individual need.

What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
We offer several complimentary beverages such as white and red wine, more than 10 different hot teas, bottled water, hot cocoa, and coffee. We also offer snacks such as snack bars, chocolates, and other sweets.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We believe that a spa experience is best when taken the time to service each individual needs and customize to their liking. We are a very small boutique spa and this gives us the opportunity to give more of a personalized and customized experience to each client in a more private setting.
