A long row of plush, khaki-toned pedicure chairs on raised platforms lines a bright yellow interior lit by hanging lamps. The studio's service list includes waxing and facials, although the Solar pros specialize in nailcare. A warm paraffin treatment or french tips can be added to classic or Solar Deluxe mani-pedis, or clients can opt for acrylics or shellac gel polish for longer-lasting color that, like a selfless poker player, resists chips. Solar's technicians also gussy up nails with colorful patterns and intricate freehand designs.
As a photographer and stylist whose clients have appeared in Allure and Bazaar magazines, Hugo of Hugo Salon and Spa understands that his work doesn’t just involve making his clients look good when they leave his chair. His cuts, colors, and styles must have longevity so they can look just as stunning when the cameras are rolling, a service that he and his team can provide as well, including the impeccable styling and makeup. To that end, he staffs a knowledgeable team of stylists who remain on the cutting edge of beauty through continuing education. They follow Hugo’s lead in beautifying clients with sleek cuts, root and full colors, and highlights. They also provide Brazilian blowouts and Japanese thermal straightening treatments, making hair look as relaxed and shiny as Mr. Clean lounging in a sauna.
