The staffers at Bronze Boutique don’t just oversee the operation of standup and lie-down UV tanning beds and applications of Infinity Sun airbrush tans—they also tend to clients' nails, hair, and even teeth. In the salon, stylists insert microlink and clip-in extensions or add streaks of color to lend depth to a hairstyle. During spa services, skin specialists remove brow hair with threading and exfoliate away dead skin cells with microdermabrasion and pumpkin chemical peels. When exposed to a special blue light, another chemical solution, BleachBright's peroxide whitening gel, lightens teeth so they twinkle like Santa's eyes do when the midnight polar sun isn't blinding them.
From its cozy corner at Spatini Skin & Nail Spa, Nails by Krista caters to clients’ nail-grooming needs with a full menu of fingernail and toenail treatments. Krista pampers hands and feet with relaxing mani-pedis and tops off treatments with a dollop of bright nail polish or durable Shellac gel polish, which lasts up to two weeks. She can also add a full set of acrylic or gel nails for a chip- and crack-resistant manicure, or pamper kiddie-sized fingers and instill good grooming habits with a child’s manicure.
Theresa Fuentes generates happy customers by offering them her undivided attention for the entire duration of each service. The owner of @Lash specializes in eyelash extensions, which she painstakingly applies one lash at a time to mimic the shape and sleep schedule of natural lashes. The cozy, lounge-like salon endeavors to keep up with current beauty trends such as Dazzle Dry, a vegan nail polish that lasts up to four weeks and dries within five minutes.
Avalon Spa & Nails' extremity-care professionals help clients evade worries with customized, soothing spa services. Using sterilized and sanitized tools, a nail technician will trim, shape, and buff nails, leaving hands and feet feeling refreshed and less covered in brittle peanut-butter remnants. After the cleaning, choose a polish color or have digits buffed until they reach high levels of gleam. If you opt to apply the Groupon toward other services, you can choose a signature spa manicure ($25), which adds an exfoliating sugar scrub, a hand and arm massage, and a hot-towel compression to the traditional service, or choose from a panoply of pelt-removing options, including bikini waxing ($40), upper-lip waxing ($12), and arm waxing ($40).
Shortly after completing his studies at Sassoon Academy in London and plying the hairdresser's trade in Dublin, master stylist Robert Quinn made the move to Boston. He soon began styling for local TV personalities, including TV journalist Kathleen Sullivan and 60 Minutes reporter Lesley Stahl, and he frequently appeared on the morning talk show A.M. Boston to share makeover advice with viewers.
Now at his own full-service salon and spa in Scottsdale, Quinn leads a team of more than 40 stylists, nail techs, and aestheticians as they cater to each client's needs. The team works with trusted product lines including L'Oréal, Kérastase, Pureology, Bumble and bumble., Phytologie, Aquage, Moroccanoil, and Kevin.Murphy.
Seasoned techs beautify clients under the banner of Artistry Salon, whose legacy stretches back 26 years. Amid modern furnishings, stylists revamp manes with services such as haircuts, styles, color, and highlights. They also nourish and defrizz strands with Moroccanoil and Marcia Teixeira keratin treatments. Eschewing services that can damage nails, such as acrylic nails, they serve up hot oil, paraffin wax, and gel manicures to soothe worn out hands and feet more effectively than reading them inspirational poems from Chicken Soup for the Appendage Soul.
