The nail technicians of Galaxy Nail Spa pamper and polish digits with a specialized menu of mani-pedis. The staff’s repertoire builds upon the classic mani-pedi, lavishing patrons in customized levels of luxury with optional additions, including skin-softening scrubs, soothing hot towels, and sense-invigorating aromatherapy. Patrons can opt to upgrade polishings with a coat of shellac, which maintains a chip-free surface despite the wear of day-to-day activities and marathon ding-dong ditching.

A cast of independent stylists and aestheticians work amid the vibrant purple walls and red accents at pHyxx Salon. Some man their own styling stations, where they ribbon locks with luminous highlights, snip split ends, and combat frizz and curl with the Keratin smoothing treatment. Others, like Ashley, invite clients into serene and private spa rooms. There, the skin specialists cleanse and exfoliate guests during relaxing facials?fit for men, women, and clay busts?or strip away unwanted hair using nothing but warm wax and muslin strips.
It looks so simple: a length of twisted cotton glides across the face, grazing the upper lip, eyebrows, and hairline. This is threading, an ancient hair-removal art with roots in India and the Middle East. Masters of this art, M&M Thread Salon’s staff members quickly ensnare bristles in their threads, creating lines as sharp and clean as the battle ax that chops soap into bar form. The treatment is particularly beneficial for people with sensitive skin, as it uproots hair without chemicals or harmful products. The salon also performs waxing and facials.
