Inside Nails by Linda, light from ornate chandeliers sets aglow the wheatgrass-green walls, fuchsia orchids, and a print of Biscaretti?s iconic 1925 Anisetta Evangelisti. As Biscaretti?s jovial chimp lifts his glass in perpetuity, Linda Smith attends to each client personally, bringing each of her 18 years as a nail technician to the table, prettifying digits with specialty manicures and pedicures. Guests leave the salon with their favorite hues or stroll out with Shellac manicures that resist chips more diligently than a militant dietitian.
Aesthetician Linda Smith knows how to help skin recover from environmental toxins and sun exposure and look its natural, radiant self. At Monkey Bizness, she tends to skin with facials, LED therapy, and raindrop therapy. Natural sugaring furnishes gentle hair removal, and the VascuTouch system helps reduce the appearance of spider veins and the skin tags that reveal bodies' original prices.
The staffers at Cocoa Nail & Beauty Bar always keep a list of “no-no’s” in mind when purchasing polish for the salon: no formaldehyde, no toluene, no dibutyl phthalate. In addition to keeping customers safe from these harmful, unpronounceable words, they ensure a clean environment by wielding one-time-use tools, sterilizing metal pieces with medical-grade machinery, and placing a new liner in their pedicure tubs for each guest. All of these precautionary measures, however, do nothing to get in the way of their ultimate goal of relaxing every single patron. The staff cultivates a welcoming, cozy vibe, even setting out a complimentary cocoa bar so guests can sip on warm cups of silky hot chocolate as they get their nails done, remove unwanted hair, revitalize their skin, or extend their eyelashes.
Fingers are the hands’ workhorses. After years of gripping pencils, traipsing across keyboards, and pointing vociferously at the ghost no one else seems to see, they need a break. That’s where Karlette, a nail technician at b. jolie Salon and Spa, comes in. Sugar scrubs, nourishing masks, and vivid colors of polish stand at the ready as she revives beleaguered appendages. For extra relaxation she calls on her reflexology skills to relieve tension and discomfort from feet. As Karlette battles unruly cuticles, Redken stylists fly past in the chic, welcoming salon, making it easy for her clients to add on a haircut, a set of highlights, or an advanced wig-styling session.
Contrary to popular belief, Monkey Bizness Salon and Day Spa is not filled with monkeys. Instead, highly trained stylists and nail technicians tackle beauty issues with ease. They cut hair into trendy styles or add more depth with highlights. Fingers and toes command attention during mani-pedis that cover them in vibrant nail polish hues and long-lasting Shellac polish.
From inside I Do Nalz’s family-operated space, seasoned nail tech Patricia deftly trims, shapes, and paints nails with bright shades of polish or long-lasting CND Shellac. Her focus on safe hygiene practices ensures fingers and toes are only treated with disposable, freshly sanitized, or newly hatched tools.
