For the staff of Beautiful Forever Nails & Spa’s, safely pampering customers is a top priority. While their beauty-bolstering services—from mani-pedis to herbal treatments—keep nails and faces fresh, their hospital-grade autoclave systems sterilize each and every tool, eliminating potential contaminates. They further practice exceptional hygiene by brandishing not only disposable files, buffers, and liners, but also pedicure sponges chosen for their adamant refusal to bathe in dish water.
Just like its namesake, the interior of Charm Beauty Salon glows golden. With an updated-yet-retro feel, modular couches sit opposite of styling stations separated by tall pillars, where stylists smooth locks with Brazilian blowouts and shear new 'dos via exacting snips. Tucked away in private rooms, aestheticians de-fuzz physiques with a range of waxing services, from eyebrows to stubborn thigh-brows. Meanwhile, using products from Yonka and G.M. Collin, hydrating and exfoliating facials leave mugs fresh and smooth.
A long row of cushioned, black leather pedicure chairs outfitted with wood armrests and clear, punchbowl-like basins line the wall of Boudoir Nail & Spa. Lightly stained wood floors and multi-hued neon lighting accents give the salon a modern, perhaps even hip atmosphere in which to unwind with a beauty treatment. The salon also showcases a hint of the natural world with green plants that stretch to the ceiling, like a basketball player showing where he hides his tall pills. Boudoir's team performs services worthy of the elegant décor: massages, waxing, and facials take place in private rooms, as do permanent makeup applications.
The staff at Body Lounge Spa cossets skin during rejuvenating facials and body wraps, and redefines nails while patrons recline in cushioned red pedicure thrones. Guests can sip a glass of wine at the beverage bar as they take in the earth-toned décor grounded in deep chocolate and caramel tones. Massage therapists then invite patrons to rooms illuminated with candles, where treatments such as the energizing Thai massage combat stress and render muscles loose enough to bound up an escalator that's going down.
Katie Cazorla worked as an actress and comedian for 10 years until a dissatisfying mani-pedi changed her life. She became obsessed with the inadequacies of the salons in her area, resolving to open her own and do it right. Hence, The Painted Nail was born. Katie outfitted the lavender-walled space with white armchairs, vintage-inspired chandeliers, and a team of expert nail technicians who pamper guests with hair and nail services. Using hospital-grade sterilizing equipment and more than 300 colors of gel nail polish, the techs treat hands and feet to bubble baths or ice-cream-themed treatments. For after-hours pampering sessions, Katie opens the doors of the party lounge, offering karaoke stages, a photo booth, and manicure bar and pedicure lounge to help celebrate bachelorette parties or sticking one’s head between some stair-railing bars without getting it stuck.
