At Studio 21 Salon and Spa, talon-trimming artisan Donna Ray brings out the best in fingers and toes with a pampering and beautifying 60-minute spa mani-pedi. Donna begins by soaking digits in a relaxing bath, after which she shapes nails and carefully curates cuticles. Next, she soothes away the stress of daily work schedules and nightly bongo competitions with a massage of the hands, forearms, feet, and legs. Then, a warm-towel wrap rejuvenates hooves and melts away any lingering tension. Donna finishes finger and toe canvases with a lustrous lacquer in a choice of colorful hue, determined by a favorite outfit, lipstick, or magic 8 ball answer.
For more than two decades, the experienced technicians at In The Nails have been making Huntsville’s scenery brighter by outfitting its residents with vibrant polish and artificial nails as well as pampering clients with a selection of skincare and massage services, including deep-tisse and shiatsu treatments. During relaxing manicures, they brush nails with a hypoallergenic shellac that sports a mirror-like finish and lasts up to 14 days without cracking, chipping, or caramelizing. Along with the expert nailcare that inspired the salon’s name, the team promotes all-over wellness with massages, peels, waxing, and other clinical skincare services and participates in community-service efforts to keep discarded hangnails off the streets.
The beauty professionals at EuroTouch Salon & Spa root their work in the European philosophy, which they define as "the philosophy of healing, clarifying and rejuvenating the mind, body, and spirit." As hair stylists, nail technicians, massage therapists, and skincare experts perform treatments that fulfill these tenets, the surrounding decor evokes Old-World sensibilities—ornate golden-framed mirrors, Romanesque pillars, and Renaissance-like paintings create a tranquil, baroque ambiance. The reception area features a full-size water fountain that could easily grace an Italian piazza or Ponce de León's master bathroom. In this setting, clients undergo curative treatments with M.D. Forté skincare products or submit to personally tailored services or packages.
Maroon pedicure chairs line the walls at Li-En Nail Salon 1, where feet soak in warm whirlpool tubs before an exfoliating sea scrub and mask treatment. During manicures, a wall-mounted TV entertains patrons as nail technicians top fingertips with bright shades of OPI and China Glaze polish.
Dee'Sign Nail Salon's head nail tech Demetria "Dee" Jordan wields 10 years of experience imbuing fingernails and toenails with vibrant new caps. Put your hands where a member of the skilled staff can see them, and you'll be rewarded with a neat nail trimming of fingernails and toenails. Perfectly symmetrical tips will take the place of formerly unruly edges, and cuticles will be gently groomed into a more sightly disposition. Dee'Sign's staff dips limb-tips into polishes from brands such as OPI, Orly, and China Glaze with the attentiveness and care of a zookeeper bottle-feeding a newborn snake. After the mani-pedi, a nail technician buffs dry skin and removes tar and feathers from hands and feet with an exfoliating sea-salt scrub.
