The second her clients walk through the door, Ana strives to give them the most relaxing experience possible by delivering meticulously preformed nail services with a personal and friendly approach. Her manicures and pedicures are executed with some of the industry's most popular products, such as OPI nail polish and CND Shellac's long-wearing gel-formula lacquer. Patrons on the go can beautify their tips with Ana's basic mani-pedi, which includes nail shaping, a light massage, and polish. More leisurely clients or retired vacuum salesmen can indulge in a more extravagant treatment, such as hot-stone massage therapy, a moisturizing foot mask, or a refreshing scrub.
Operated by Nicole Briscoe, a stylist with 12 years of experience, The Industry Salon, located inside the Industry 453 clothing boutique, entices individuals by offering high-quality treatments performed with creative flair. Nicole’s passion for styling, which was nurtured during training sessions with Bumble and bumble, Paul Mitchell, and Redken, shines through during each and every appointment as she works with her clients to achieve inspired new looks. From haircuts and color treatments to facial waxing and clip-on extensions, Nicole aims to improve on their natural beauty. Shellac manicures, another specialty of Nicole’s, utilize a specially formulated polish that resists chips for up to two weeks, an ideal nail treatment for court reporters working under a judge who moonlights as an auctioneer.
At Platinum Hair Design, hair designers Deidra Cooper and Karen Wilburn oversee a variety of salon services powered by a spread of European products and Enjoy’s haircare line. Enjoy—a brand known for its sulfate-free shampoos and botanical-rich, volumizing conditioners—stars in many services by day, and occasionally moonlights as the preferred choice of local lounge singers. And when the team needs inspiration for new products or services, they often turn to Toni&Guy's award-winning training sessions, which have recently blessed Platinum Hair Design with trending treatments such as trilevel color weaves, blond-on-blond highlights, and caramelizing highlights.
From within Portfolio Hair & Beauty Works, the team at Nails by Francesca pays close attention to scents when beautifying hands and feet. They enhance their mani-pedis with decadent blackberry-vanilla sugar scrubs, blackurrant soy masks, and vanilla massage cream. If vanilla isn’t your scent of choice, fear not: they also dote on feet with lemon soufflé- or chocolate mint-infused pedicure treatments. To cap off sessions, nail techs top digits with glittery nail art or long-lasting Shellac.

The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
Our interior is a mix of soft relaxing colors such as blues and green and white. It is more of a home feeling and everyone enjoys the relaxing easy listening music that is played. The spa is very quaint and homey.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
That our services are really customized to each person and that we have such a extensive menu for a small place that offers services that fits for each individual need.
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
We offer several complimentary beverages such as white and red wine, more than 10 different hot teas, bottled water, hot cocoa, and coffee. We also offer snacks such as snack bars, chocolates, and other sweets.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We believe that a spa experience is best when taken the time to service each individual needs and customize to their liking. We are a very small boutique spa and this gives us the opportunity to give more of a personalized and customized experience to each client in a more private setting.
For Studio NN nail artist Toni, art has always been a passion. That's why whenever she sits down to paint and polish nails, she looks for ways to create 10 tiny pieces of nail art individualized for every client. She can add bold geometric patterns to nails, fleck tips of nails with sparkles, or apply jewels for added texture and shine. But, like an apple sitting very still in a bowl of other fruits, she doesn't just specialize in art. Her manicures and pedicures are also sessions of pure relaxation. During luxury manicures and pedicures, she exfoliates skin with a raw sugar scrub, massages muscles, and releases tension in the shoulders with a comforting neck warmer.
