Brightly painted nails, revitalized skin, a celeb-inspired hairdo?the opportunities for transformation abound at MiaBella's Salon and Spa. This full-service shop staffs stylists, aestheticians, nail technicians, and cosmetologists intent on breathing new life into their clients' looks, one strand of hair or one stroke of nail polish at a time. Stylists craft haircuts before adding bright pops of peekaboo color or highlights. Nail techs paint on coats of polish, including holiday-themed designs in long-lasting Shellac. And aestheticians nurture faces back to their youthful glow with facials that fight blemishes and signs of aging, such as wrinkles and parchment-paper cuts.
Jamie Fleetwood liked working as an esthetician at Art Salon & Spa so much that she bought the beautifying business in 2010. Along with her staff of fellow estheticians, stylists, makeup artists, and massage therapists, Fleetwood pampers her clients inside the newly renovated, sun-drenched space. Her aesthetic touch might only be matched by that space’s decor: it’s accented with sleek hardwood floors, verdant plants, and earth tones as warm as a made-for-TV movie about dogs that adopt other dogs. Among these scenic fixtures, the team renders a slate of services in the form of facials, Shellac manicures, therapeutic massages, and highlights.
Armed with high-quality polishes and a passion for keratin restoration, owner Kevin Lane and his team of nail masters prepare glove and stocking stuffers to emerge for springtime. During the level-one manicure (up to a $27 value) and level-one pedicure (up to a $51 value), five-pronged pals soak and soften before their tips are trimmed and buffed until shinier than a shellacked pear.
