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.
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.
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.
An Aveda concept salon, Shine staffs expert aestheticians who woo customers with a comprehensive menu of beautifying and calming services. Haircuts ($35 for women, $20 for men) feature complimentary head, neck, and scalp massages to calm scissor-fearing tendrils, while non-scalp follicles can be sentenced to waxing, from simple lip pruning ($10 and up) to a full Brazilian deforestation ($65 and up). A manicure ($20) and pedicure ($35–$65) can restore shoddy digit tips to their original state of glamour. Pre-prettified figures can revel in a 30-, 60-, or 90-minute signature relaxation massage ($35–$85) from the licensed therapist, which features an effleurage barrage designed to ward off tax nightmares and melt away tensions. This Groupon can also be used toward products or pricier services such as the aromatherapy hot-stone massage ($80 for 60 min., $110 for 90 min.), which blots out agitation with essential-oil scents and sizzling basalt rocks.
Within her station at Studio 9 Salon, expert nail technician Tammy Montgomery rejuvenates weary hands and feet with her lavish nail services. On any given day, Tammy can be found exfoliating hands and feet with a salt scrub before gilding nails with polish to ready them for a night on the town. She also installs full sets of gel nails available in a choice of vibrant colors so that patrons may match them to their personal style, favorite outfit, or moodiest rings.
