A staff of nearly 20 nail artists, hairstylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists populates Radiance Salon & Spa's inviting confines. After passing through the comfortable lobby to the appropriate treatment room, patrons perch hands atop blush-colored desks for nourishing manicures, nestle into chairs for hairstyling sessions, or recline on massage tables for no real reason. As clients revitalize with products from Redken, Pureology, Matrix, and other professional lines, they can let their hair down and let the spa's warm and welcoming decor induce relaxation.
Aesthetician Tracy Mayfield stays abreast of the latest beautifying techniques and technologies, administering an impressive array of waxing services from her post at Gossip Salon Studios. Armed with nothing more than paper strips and heated wax, she whisks every speck of unwanted stubble from corporeal regions, even masterfully smoothifying hard-to-reach bits, such as the inner nose or ear. Her facials clear buildup from pores and alleviate acne and other skin conditions while keeping noses from barking the whole time with aromatherapy scents. Her eyelash and eyebrow tinting, meanwhile, adds a sense of drama to the eyes without having to replace eyelids with miniature theater curtains.
The beauty specialists at Above and Beyond Salon primp customers with everything from haircare to airbrush tans. Lavish nail designs, including glitter tips, top off mani-pedis, and even the kiddos can feel pampered with mini manicures. Along with salon services, the stylists beautify the skin and body with seaweed wraps, European facials, and microdermabrasions.
Surrounded by walls painted in plum, olive, and sunflower hues, Avanti Salon's team of beauty specialists refines hair and nails with creative flair and seasoned techniques. Permanent-makeup artist Lisa Anderson calls on more than 10 years of experience as she applies permanent eyeliner, eyebrow liner, or lip liner, helping clients bypass the need for makeup or head-butting a cosmetics model every morning. As stylists transform heads with haircuts, extensions, and color, specialists also smooth physiques with waxing services. Nail artists stick digits in the spotlight with artful shaping, vibrant polish, and custom acrylic designs or nail art.
Female-owned-and-operated since 1999, Fondue Body Piercing & Tattoo adorns epidermises with ink and jewelry in its clean, safe, and welcoming storefront. A member of Fondue's team of experienced tattoo artists leads clients past vivid pink- and orange-painted brick walls into private rooms, where an arsenal of professional tools await their next body art project. Fondue's extensive portfolio of past skin-borne masterpieces ($40+) includes scripted phrases, personal photograph renderings, and original designs of mythical creatures, such as unicorns and Norman Mailer. Body piercings ($20+, includes jewelry) add sparkle and additional aeration to dull body surfaces, from simple ear and nose studs, to clavicle piercings and ear gauging. The boutique also stocks an array of jewelry, men's and women's clothing, hookahs, purses, and other accessories, which are only redeemable with this Groupon when a tattoo or piercing is purchased.
Plum-hued walls flank Teased Hair & Nail Boutique, whose stylists corral manes and whose nail pros specialize in acrylics, gels, and pedicures. Long-lasting acrylics and gels coat each nail in a chip-free shield of color, and there is no charge for repairs or cuticles' cable TV installation. A glittery portfolio of creative, fastidiously lavished nail art shows off the digit detailers' skills, and a menu of tinsel, feathers, and weaves outfits noggins with an elaborate roster of scalp-sprucing treatments.
