Nestled in Sevierville, Sassy Nails is a full-service nail salon that also offers facials, waxing, and complimentary high-fives. A mural of dolphins stands behind a row of comfortable pedicure chairs. While perched atop these thrones, clients enjoy their choice of pedicure, which can include soothing foot soaks, exfoliating scrubs, and foot massages. For kids, Sassy Nails has pint-size, Arthur-themed pedicure chairs that are each equipped with a computer to keep rascals entertained while they get a little pampering.
Hugged by the soothing arms of the Smoky Mountain foothills, The Spa at Oak Haven offers a variety of deluxe spa services in a picturesque log-cabin environment. Fit for even the weariest lumberjacks and lumberjanes, the almost heaven massage ($75/60 minutes) eases tension and improves circulation according to your personal pressure preference. A deep cleansing facial ($85/60 minutes) reduces blemishes and unclogs pores, leaving your face silky and smooth as a baby seal. Rest atop a spa chair while treating your toes to the ice cream pedicure ($65), which features a flavored fizzing bath of oils, minerals, and fragrances. Sherbet exfoliants scrub out impurities while one of three foot masks—caramel, chocolate-hazelnut, or marshmallow—sweetens the deal. While your mouth chomps on a frozen treat of its own, the process finishes with a foot and leg massage with hydrating body icing and the application of toenail polish to match your new flannel shirt and bright-blue pet ox.
Nail artist Andy Nguyen knows that your nails are not just an accessory—they’re part of your body that needs maintenance to stay healthy.

Andy uses only hygienic, sterilized tools to keep nails safe while they groom them to perfection before polishing them up in stylish colors.
Hardworking feet get special attention during pedicures that incorporate hot-towel massages, skin-smoothing foot masks, and aromatherapy footbaths into pedicures to soften hardened heels and relieve pressure from the new trend in stiletto rollerblades. To enhance the already relaxing experience, meditation music filters through the treatment room as clients sip on complimentary wine and soft drinks.
The salon extends its service menu beyond nails to incorporate skin and massage treatments. Hot stones and the energy-balancing effects of reiki work to relieve stress. Facials and body treatments use the natural effects of herbal ingredients and complexion-refining mud, allowing clients to utilize the effects of curative effects of nature without snuggling up in that badger den overnight again.
