Getting your nails done is a simple way to make yourself feel more put together, and as a result, a simple way to feel ready to take on the world. At Salon Elite, nail artist Olivia boosts the confidence of those in need of a quick pick-me-up through manicures and pedicures. She pushes down cuticles and trims and shapes nails, as well as kneads feet, ensuring they are as relaxed as a sock puppet cleaned in a sink instead of a washing machine. Olivia then brushes bright polishes and shiny topcoats onto nails.
Olivia works alongside several cosmetologists and aestheticians, who also boost confidence through their hair and skincare services.
Alejandro Salon is always thinking of its customers. It's held three client appreciation and charity events and even offered clients discounts during the month of March for bringing in peanut butter, which was donated to Food Share. Most importantly, however, the salon provides its clients with the work of experienced stylists, such as Jessica Haas. Jessica performs a variety of services, including painting manes with color or highlights, adding volume with weaves, snipping strands into chic coifs, and nourishing strands with conditioner.
Fresh lilies blush on Rebe Belle Salon de Colour?s front desk and cards peek out of a whimsical shoe-shaped business card holder. The salon?s playful sensibility belies its meticulous attention to detail, which stylists to each hairstyling or makeup session. In the waiting area, customers relax on zebra print chairs or carefully paint monochromatic stripes on their bodies until they blend into the fabric. In the styling room, products peek out from between the leaves of lush vines that creep across high wooden shelves.
Stylist Sue transforms her clients looks with new hairstyles and treatments for men and women. After a face-framing cut, get a deep-conditioning treatment to infuse strands with moisture or a color treatment. Hot-towel scalp and facial stimulation treatments, meanwhile, leave clients soothed and ready for their next dreaded encounter with fresh air.
Wielding an organic formula, the tanning technician at Sergio's Hair Studio mists patrons' skin into a bronzed glow with full-body airbrush tans. During the private five-minute sessions, tanning technician Rachael hand applies the preservative- and alcohol-free spray, coating limbs and torsos in a golden hue similar to that attained by sunbathing, but without the risk of sunburn or a stern email from the surgeon general. Clients can bask in their new hue for up to a week, flaunting it at high-school reunions, weddings, or in front of wistful gallons of milk.
