The deluxe manicure and pedicure at Nail Talk and Tan builds on basic grooming (cuticle and nail shaping, light massage, and a fresh coat of shiny polish), adding extra muscle manipulation, aromatic exfoliation, and sea-salt scrub to the mix. During the treatment, a skilled nail technician will help you slaughter stress by masterfully massaging your head, temples, neck, shoulders, legs, and feet. Sea-salt and sugar scrubs leave skin smooth and moisturized and set expired skin cells free to float around in the air. The pedicure includes a luxurious cooling mask with hot towels to soothe aches and pains.
The staffers at iNails Salon and Spa send bodies into states of relation with an array of nail, facial, and massage services. Experienced nail technicians pamper all 20 digits with 14 Botanical Escapes Herbal Spa treatments that blanket skin surfaces with a bouquet of natural ingredients. Guests submit finger or toe tips to soak in a bath bubbling with oils smelling of soothing cocoa or rejuvenating peppermint, preventing patrons from having to waste secret stashes of Junior Mints on DIY footbaths. SaniSmart spa jets bubble around ankles as techs pluck sanitized tools from a hospital-grade autoclave to scrub skin and prune everything in the vicinity of the nail. A choice of lacquer or nail-strengthening treatment caps each nail service. The salon also offers specialty manicures and pedicures aimed at relieving congestion, detoxifying, or rejuvenating clients, and tends to the body's other relaxation points with massages and facials that employ Dermalogica products.
“Remember, it begins with your eyebrows and ends with your feet,” reads a quote on Alicia's Arch Complete's Facebook page. For more than 15 years, beauty veteran Alicia Rankin has been building more beautiful bodies from the brows downward, working from a service menu that includes antioxidant-rich facials, full-body waxing, and nail services. To help customers maintain that postsalon patina at home, the staff also retails a line of foot and body scrubs in scents such as lavender, pumpkin spice, and pink grapefruit and can also be called upon to lead makeup lessons for individuals or groups of confused time travelers.
Trained in advanced precision cutting and coloring at Vidal Sassoon Academy, Zahra Negin has spent more than two decades as a stylist, including managing a top salon in Los Angeles. However, in addition to this experience, an equally important credential is her own hair—a mane of dynamic, natural-looking blond. At her eponymous salon, she specializes in color and cuts for blonds, although she and her team can also style hair of other hues with chic cuts, custom highlights, and keratin-straightening treatments. The team also customizes hair to clients' lifestyles, aesthetics, and collections of tiny hats by offering comprehensive consultations, before styling, shampooing, and conditioning hair with products by brands such as Kérastase and Moroccanoil. For an additional customer-friendly touch, the salon offers complimentary extras, such as shampoos with neck massages.
The clacks of nail clippers and scraping sounds of pumice fill the soundscape at Afternoon Salon Nail and Spa, a cozy beauty haven nestled within the Buckhead Court shopping center. In addition to regular and gel-based mani-pedis, which are accompanied by hot-stone foot massages, the staff performs spa services such as facials.
Parisian Nail Salon's nail gurus dote on digits with the 25-minute express Parisian spa pedicure, a luxurious treatment that deluges sandal-weary piggies with torrents of spa salts and essential oils. After human paws are thoroughly soothed in a gentle footbath, one of these seasoned staffers conditions cuticles and buffs skin with sanitized instruments, preparing feet for public exhibition in flip-flops and open-toed picture frames. Then, they'll slather softening lotion into cozy nail beds before adding prismatic pop to toe canvases with the polish of your choosing.
Classic beauty is the theme at Eminence Nails & Spa, where faux-finish walls, marble ionic columns, and stone banisters evoke the elegance of a more romantic age. But don't make the mistake of calling the spa old-fashioned; it was featured on Fox News for its use of trendy Minx nail films, which adhere to natural and acrylic nails with heat and have been sported by Hollywood types such as Beyoncé, Christina Aguilera, and Pink. When they aren't primping paws, the staff stay busy by cosseting clients with facials and massages and by administering routine eyebrow waxes to their print of Napoleon Crossing the Alps.
