Lenee Lowery's mani-pedis pamper hands and feet with warm soaks, soothing lotions, and stress-busting massage. She artfully applies polish to newly groomed nails and enhances nubby nails with full sets of acrylics. French manicures add a tidy white strip to the top of each nail, as if each finger was just dipped partway into a bowl of crème fraîche.
Swan & Company's stylists artfully resurface heads of hair and primp nail beds with salon products and keen aesthetic senses. During haircuts, meticulous scissors snip and shorten any rogue strands before the remaining locks are styled into shapes that fit customers' heads. Along with cutting and styling services, the staff can cleanse complexions with exfoliating microdermabrasion, dress nails in CND Shellac polish, and de-frizz hairdos with Coppola keratin smoothing.
Guests at Lola's Addiction Salon are often impressed by the sheen of the hardwood floors and the elegant chandeliers that dangle from the ceiling like crystal earrings. But the salon's biggest gasp-provoker is the 8-foot wall mirror. It's one part renaissance and one part Alice in Wonderland, surrounded by a frame of intricate swirling wood. Amid these whimsical accents, expert stylists transform hair with sleek layers and bold highlights. Clients may also solicit the salon for a restorative facial or private makeup consultation.
Hands and feet are taken care of specially at Cultured Nails. Each of the shop's manicures and pedicures is enhanced with a luxurious body polish that exfoliates callused feet and softens weatherworn hands. These exfoliants are created in the salon using sea salt, essential oils, real fruit and flowers, Jojoba oils, and vitamin E. Beyond stocking its shelves with top brands of traditional polish, Cultured Nails now also offers CND Shellac, a quick-drying formula that can withstand chips for up to 14 days or longer for those who never remove their oven mitts.
Though Annabelle Salon & Spa's beauticians possess a number of skills, maintaining an immaculately clean environment is the most prized skill in their repertoire. The salon?s staff, which lists sanitation as its No. 1 priority, disinfects and otherwise tends to each implement used in its sessions. Nail technicians embellish fingers and toes with safe, effective manicure tools and name-brand products from OPI, Essie, and CND. Firmly gripping their shears, stylists zip deftly through manes, crafting eye-catching, face-flattering hairdos and obscuring scalp tattoos of email passwords. Annabelle Salon & Spa?s service menu further beautifies bodies with facials, permanent makeup, and waxing services.
Scattered throughout the peninsula, Natalie Salon Inc.'s five locations each house a team of specialists who pamper and beautify guests during nail, waxing, hair, and facial services. Staffers make over bodies from head to toe, rejuvenating faces with facials and treating dull talons to manicures and pedicures. They hone in on hair all over the body, waxing away unwanted fur, arranging lackluster strands into stylish coiffures, and tinting eyebrows to match recently dyed locks or recently dry-cleaned banana suits.
