At 7 Days Spa, nail techs pamper hands and feet with the Ultimate Angel spa mani-pedi, a beautification session that takes about 80 minutes and includes a soothing massage and sea salt scrub. But clients can also opt for treatments that get them in and out the door quickly such as mini manicures and pedicures. When they aren't painting nails with OPI, Essie, and China Glaze polishes, staffers wax away unwanted hair, a much more effective tactic than giving your upper lip a stern talking-to.
Sue, of Sue's Hair Removal, brings years of experience to ancient sugaring methods (called shelta) and customized facials.

Creations is an appropriate word for Simply Amazin Hair Creations to include in its name—the salon's specialty is working with various types of hair extensions, using them to create length, volume, and thickness. Stylists use wefts of virgin Indian and Russian hair, gluing, sewing, or microlinking them to natural hair. Of course, the stylists also perform traditional salon services, including cuts, color, and relaxers, for hair that hasn't had a vacation in years.
