Whatever Paige's clients' nails look like coming in, they're virtually guaranteed to catch more looks on the way out. Certified at the Glen Dow Academy, Paige descends on fingers and toes with experienced filing and buffing, and then ignites them in a galaxy of multicolored nail art and polishes. For the latter step, she relies on professional polishes, Shellacs, and acrylics by Tammy Taylor, C&D, and Gelish.
Angela Bartlett of Beauty Creations is an expert at beautifying hair and nails into the ultimate accessories. Specializing in nail art and sculpted acrylics, Angela stocks more than 75 colors of nail-embellishing lacquers at her cozy studio, including Shellac, OPI gel, and a rainbow of glitters that would be the envy of any self-respecting fairy. In addition to nails, she also amps up coiffures with classic and contemporary hairstyles.
Sunny Buns' resident stylist, Kirstie Dominguez, taps into years of expertise to create looks that match the latest trends in hair design. Armed with scissors, high-quality hair care products, and a super soaker filled with shampoo, she cuts flowing layers and snips strands into pixie cuts. She also illuminates locks with sun-kissed highlights or all-over color.
Though Stephanie Bailey once studied with skincare giants—Dr. Murad and Dr. Obagi of their eponymous medical-grade lines—her heart wasn't in it. "[I] just couldn't pull away from what I love most, which is skincare for the hands and feet," she says. Once she realized that, Bailey developed her own waterless pedicure style that eschews traditional water jets in her pedicures to eliminate the concern of cross contamination and accidental foot drowning. After beautifying the digits of cheerleaders from the Dallas Cowboys and Mavericks, she moved to Idaho and applied her 28 years of experience to Nails by Stephanie at Revive Salon.
