At Image Nail Salon, nail gurus pamper hands and feet with a fleet of manicures and pedicures. During the manicure and spa pedicure, patrons commit hands and feet to the care of a keratin master, who spends between 60 and 90 minutes clipping and buffing nails and swaddling digits in colored polish. A package of two can be used to spruce up original work at a later date, or to decorate your second set of limbs. Alternatively, opt for a 40-minute gel manicure, and a skilled technician will trim nails, curtail cuticles, and finish each fingertip with a long-lasting color swatch. Though not included in today’s Groupon, clients can treat paws to further TLC with a variety of add-on services, including a french manicure ($5 extra) or nail art ($5 extra) such as stars, flowers, or a miniature replica of the Sistine Chapel.

Certain hairstyles look good on certain facial shapes. When a client asks for a haircut you know will be a mismatch for them, how do you handle it?
I tactfully guide them to a choice that will flatter them more, maybe using some of the elements they like about the other style.
For many people, a trip to the salon is a way to enjoy some "me time." What supplemental courtesies do you offer to make guests feel relaxed?
I offer my clients cold drinks, and I can also do makeup, mani-pedis, and scalp massages if they schedule them in advance.
Purelux Hair Salon owner and stylist Brittany Amos has been cutting and coloring hair since the tender age of 12, but it wasn't until she was 19 that her career really took off. She landed a job at a prominent salon in Cherry Creek, where seasoned hairdressers taught her how to craft stunning cuts and impart brilliant color through their mentorship and hands-on training. The training was so effective that she almost became an instructor herself, but decided her learned hands were best suited to transforming appearances than typing lesson plans. Today, she calls on those skills to helm her own salon.
She calls on Wella and Goldwell Elumen products to alter the hue of hair, and the service menu catalogs waxing, makeup, and nailcare services in addition to haircare. The salon itself brims with feminine flourishes—a black-and-white image of Audrey Hepburn alludes to the idea of classic beauty, and a miniature chandelier hung from the ceiling alludes to the idea of elf prom.
Skin issues come to Therapy World to say their goodbyes. Under the care of Dr. Terry Grossman, the medspa's staff of medical aestheticians provides effective healing and anti-aging therapies to help skin look its best—and to help clients feel their best. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, the team starts each new patient relationship with individualized care. That begins with a consultation during which skin issues and current skincare regimens are examined. Then, based on the patient's goals, corrective skin procedures are recommended, such as facial peels or microdermabrasion. Dermaplaning, threading, and reiki also comprise the long list of helpful treatments the center is known for, each contributing their own benefits to overall patient well being.
Nails so pretty you can't blame someone for thinking they're not real--that's what Michelle Shoemaker creates at her salon, Nails By Michelle. She glosses them with brilliant color before adorning them with one-of-a-kind designs: glittery dots, sprawling spiderwebs, variegated stripes, or various spins on the french manicure. She specializes in gel manicures, which resist chips from everyday use or from scratching sidewalks. She's adamant about keeping her salon sanitary, so she passes on disposable files and buffers to the client and disinfects all other implements after each appointment.
Nail technician Melane specializes in Shellac manicures and pedicures, which keep nails embossed with a chip-free sheen for up to two weeks and can withstand even the most heated of patty-cake tournaments. Melane also draws on techniques learned at Empire Beauty School to enhance fingers with acrylics and funky nail art and smoothen physiques with body-waxing services.
