Whether catering to a girls? birthday party or delicately pampering a single pair of hands, The NailPort Nail Salon's devout technicians use high-end CND Vinylux, OPI and Gelish products to pamper their clients' faces and bodies. During spa mani-pedis, they file ragged edges and push back encroaching cuticles to make room for colorful decorations sealed beneath long-lasting Shellac coats. Chemical peels improve appearance of hands and feet, eyelash extensions add ferocity to peepers, and brow tinting helps standout hairs blend in with underlying skin tones or jungle foliage.
Always Beautiful makes sure its guests are swaddled from head to toe in image-enhancing services that range from chic haircuts to body waxings to pedicures capped off with glitter polish. HydraFacials sweep away brown spots, blackheads, and acne, readying faces for applications of permanent eyeliner and third eyes. Below the surface, aestheticians concentrate on stamping out headaches and allergies with ear candling treatments that originated centuries ago by the Egyptians.
At Sophia's Nails, a cast of cuticle curators bathe and hand-paint nails with a stylish stockpile of brand-name products. During the classic pedicure, feet plunge into warm water before an aesthetician trims and shapes digit tips and whisks away calluses. A skin-smoothing cuticle treatment with exfoliation is followed by a massage and concluding coats of polish, bestowing feet with the confidence to strut about town in saran-wrap sandals.

For 17 years, Gayle Layton owned a large salon in Salt Lake City. She's since moved away from the noise of the city and into the cozy Hair, Heart & Soul Salon, a quaint brick building with a spacious porch exuding homey charm. Although she's downsized her space, she offers myriad services. Stylists snip chic coifs and apply trendy ombre color, nail techs provide pampering pedicures and adorn digits with Shellac polish and nail art, and aestheticians whisk away unwanted facial fuzz.
