As its name implies, Gorgeous Salon does everything in its power to make sure that clients strut out the doors with top-to-bottom confidence. Lively chatter fills the salon as beauticians gather input on their clients’ favorite styles and determine the haircut, nail polish, or skincare product to best suit their distinctive features.

While cutting and coloring clients' hair into a bold new style or a variation on the existing theme, stylists make sure to ask questions that include the client in the design process. In a similar vein, aestheticians include a skin analysis with each microdermabrasion treatment and custom Dermalogica facial; this analysis helps them to craft the appropriate blend of products to erase blemishes, sun damage, and embarrassing lipstick marks from mom’s kisses. While nail technicians primp fingers and toes at manicure stations, nearby staffers apply stunning makeup, swipe away body hair with wax, and airbrush skin with rich, golden color.

You’re in good hands when you go to Kirei Artistic Nail Design. This isn’t just nail design, this is nail art. Mimi is the main designer, and you will be amazed by her professionalism and artistry. Kirei is not the place for a quick in-and-out manicure; Mimi takes her time with each nail to make sure it’s perfect (and she’s so personable you’ll feel like you’re making a new friend instead of just waiting for your nails to be done!) She only does gel polishes, and strongly believes in its ability both to create more beautiful nails and not damage them like acrylic. She’s happy to educate both her customers and also pre-professionals about the intricacies of 3D Japanese gel designs. Mimi uses LED lights instead of UV in her salon, which protects your hands from aging and other bad effects. And, as icing on the cake, Mimi uses real Swarovski crystals in her designs.

Sugar & Spice gilds corporeal forms with a suite of beautifying procedures. Manicures and pedicures call upon skilled nail sculptors to trim cuticles and shape jagged claws into beautifully rounded finger ornaments before coating nails in chromatic armor. Piggies get extra pampering with a soothing footbath, a sugar scrub, massage, and pumice sloughing to remove rough calluses and stubbornly clingy octopuses.
