The medical aestheticians at The Wellness Spot tackle any dermal issues with a squad of natural organic ingredients while their clients relax with a complimentary beverage, such as coffee, tea, hot cocoa, or juice. They mix their own products and serums for facials and use a microdermabrasion wand to slough away dead skin cells and pull bunnies out of hats. They also use both strip wax and hard wax to remove unwanted hair on faces, arms, and legs.
The team at 101 Nail Lounge adds glamour to its clients' digits and lids with mani-pedis and eyelash extensions. This brand-new downtown salon is staffed by old pros skilled at creating pretty looks for weddings, vacations, or highly photographed trips to the grocery store.
Nestled inside Linda's Hair, Nails, and Reflexology, Nails by Trine's technician specializes in sprucing up fingers and nails with mani-pedis, acrylics, and other nailcare treatments. Trine's passion shows as she delicately shapes nails before coating them in colored polishes. Her house specialties include nail art, long-lasting Shellac manicures, and a delicious tuna casserole.
Inside Effess salon, Paul Mitchell–certified cosmetologist London Armstrong-Adame keeps hands and feet polished with meticulous manicures and pedicures. Beyond doling out basic cuticle care and enhancing tips with gel add-ons, London gives toenails the RockStar treatment, covering them with glitzy, glittery designs that will draw attention from adoring fans and avid scrapbookers for up to six weeks.
After performing mani-pedis at other salons, Kelly opened her own nail spa, where she paints fingers and toes with long-lasting CND Shellac, OPI, and Gelish polish and applies acrylic nails and fanciful nail wraps. She also designs nail art, including Mickey and Minnie Mouse designs for customers going on Disney Cruise Line® cruises and backyard landscapes for those staycationing. Although her nail art is chic, the salon's decor is comfy and rustic. Instead of a vinyl-upholstered pedicure chair that's difficult to climb in and out of, clients relax in the salon's tufted white armchair, and in place of a cramped manicure desk, Kelly paints fingernails at a simple wooden table.
Every appointment at Dario Salon and Spa begins with an optional complementary consultation on possible haircuts and techniques that can balance and enhance an overall look, which may also include color suggestions to match complexion. Columbian-born owner Dario Enemocon is a master stylist and colorist who worked in New York before opening this sunny La Jolla Salon. Now, he doubles as a bridal expert working with a select cadre of stylists to design a synergy between the wedding gown, flowers and event location. But don’t worry, Enemocon and his staff, despite television appearances and plenty of local buzz, will still take care of your haircare and salon needs, including Keratin treatments and other techniques to make you look as vibrant as ever.
