Sam Laurenz Salon's menu of head-to-toe beauty services leaves just enough room for treatments dedicated to overall wellness and mental nurturing. Stylists lead the charge to reinvigorate images, crafting precision cuts or re-texturizing hair with billowy wave perms or smooth-as-silk straightening treatments. Away from the shears and shampoos, clients gather in private rooms to meet one-on-one with personal counselors or gather in group meetings to participate in the salon's Weigh of Life program––a weight-loss approach that encourages members to forget yo-yo diets in favor of portion control and the breaking of bad habits. Bad habits can also be banished with help from the salon's in-house hypnotist, who aims to help clients stop smoking, overcome anxiety, or overcome a crippling fear of hypnotists.
Beneath crystal chandeliers, the nail technicians at Sun's Nail & Spa's two locations pamper hands and feet with paraffin wraps and green-tea mud masks. In addition to offering both natural and artificial nail treatments, including UV-cured gel sets, the staff performs skincare services and hot-stone massages.
For more than 20 years, the friendly nail experts at Nails by Lois's tranquil spa have kept paws well groomed with custom nail services. A selection of 10 spa mani-pedis, named for delicious treats including margaritas and chocolate truffles, infuses the air with indulgent aromas and the skin with nourishing treatments such as heel-smoothing sea serums. Refreshed nails can then be crowned with a protective coat of UV gel or acrylic tips, which are much more realistic than tips made from tasty Bugles. Additionally, the nail salon's menu offers a range of aesthetic services that includes four styles of massage modalities, facials, full-body waxing, and application of permanent makeup.
Located in the Westfield South Shore Mall, Miss Nail is a perfect pit stop before or after an afternoon of shopping. Those who stroll in instantly get off their feet and sink into black leather chairs for a luxurious spa pedicure. The nail techs also pamper hands with soothing paraffin treatments during manicures that conclude with colorful coats of long-lasting gel polish. Other special treatments for nails include hand-painted nail designs, sticker designs, and silk wraps. Along with nail care, Miss Nail also beautifies patrons with waxing services for the face and body.
Although the number of Angel Tips locations hovers around 60, there’s one thing you can count on at each of its salons: knowledgeable staff. That’s because every nail tech, massage therapist, and aesthetician learns the art of beautification at Angel’s Tips’ training center in Stamford, Connecticut. During mani-pedis, they dole out luxurious add-ons such as paraffin wax and hot-stone massage. They deeply cleanse skin during facials to reveal brighter, more even complexions, and rejuvenate bodies with tropical body scrubs and Vichy showers.
