There are many nail salons that a customer can visit. There are few salons, however, that visit customers. As Nails 2 GoGo?s name suggests, its fully trained, licensed, and insured technicians can perform pampering services on the road or at their new and larger Tucson shop. The team touches up hands and feet with luxurious manicure and pedicure treatments. Cuticle artisans render simple, understated treatments, such as simple polish and exfoliating scrubs, or applications of color and shiny Shellac coats, which are the kind of coats movie stars wear on the red carpet. Along with soothing hot-towel wraps and extensive six-week bridal manicures, technicians soothe muscles with detoxifying foot-reflexology treatments and regenerate skin with cleansing facials.
Now open Sundays, Nails 2 GoGo keeps everyone's nails looking sharp for all occasions, from daily wear to wedding day glam.
Upholding the salon’s commitment to the latest in hair-cutting techniques, every stylist at Metropolis Salon undergoes extensive training and continuous education. Owner and accomplished stylist Emery Alain Nicoletti helms the salon’s in-house training program, teaching students the ins and out of salon work—from cut and color skills to the consequences of mistaking Barbasol for Gatorade. After up to two years in the program, pupils fly solo behind the styling chair to snip strands into chic cuts or enhance hair with highlights. Though hair styling is its foundation, Metropolis Salon also caters to skin and nail needs with a dozen facial treatments, waxing for face and body, and indulgent mani-pedis for both men and women.
A licensed cosmetologist with more than 25 years of experience, Ceci Sahm opens the Spanish-style doors of the Morning Sky Salon to clients craving luxurious beautifying treatments performed with certified organic products. In the 20-minute Intermezzo facial, Yonka Paris products moisturize and refresh skin with a soft, aromatic flower-and-fruit gel, leaving cheeks supple and elastic enough to store an entire winter's worth of acorns. As a meticulous manicurist sculpts and paints nails, patrons' eyes can wander over the salon's Spanish-colonial-revival architecture and courtyard fountain. Children can romp in a shady play area in the courtyard, boxing their shadows or reciting famous poems backwards to reprogram all nearby English lit majors' minds.

Salon Nouveau's sunny staff subdue everyday stresses with refreshing spa treatments. A new service fashioned by the salon's aestheticians, the soothing session is a relaxing regimen that hydrates and revitalizes tired skin, while kneading away muscle stress acquired after years on the competitive cheese-rolling circuit. Relax as an aesthetician begins the treatment with a light brushing—which aims to activate circulation and lightly exfoliate skin—followed by the addition of aromatic essential oils, relaxing the pelt until it falls dreamily into its dermal REM cycle. The paramount pampering experience culminates as the professional muscle magician soothes and caresses strained sinews with targeted strokes, leaving the body loose, luminous, and ready to backbend back into the world.
Spa NiVa pampers and beautifies every part of the body with a full service menu that incorporates treatments for skin care, massage, nails, and waxing. Using medical-grade skin care products, skin specialists clear pores and banish impurities with facials, peels, and dermaplaning, a treatment that scrapes away dead skin cells and peach fuzz with a surgical blade. Waxing treatments smoothen skin by removing hair with warm wax and microscopic landscapers who pull weeds from the roots. Nail technicians decorate fingers and toes with shellac polish or soften skin by dipping appendages into paraffin wax. Meanwhile, licensed massage therapists use kneading techniques and various degrees of pressure to alleviate stress, stiffness, and secretly being an invertebrate double agent.
