Beneath the sheer white fabrics draping the ceiling at Luxury Nails and Spa, technicians pamper bodies with nail services, facials, massages, and waxing. While reclining in a row of plush, multicolored chairs, clients treat feet with sugar scrubs and marine masks until they are as soft and smooth as a puppy quoting the Fonz. Private treatment rooms house a licensed massage therapist who kneads muscles with Swedish techniques and hot stones and aestheticians who cleanse pores with Dermalogica facial products.
At Nick’s Nails & Spa, all nail artists have three to 10 years of experience, lending them plenty of insight when it comes to manicures, artificial nails, and gel manicure services. Their arsenal includes more than 300 colors of nail polish and 50 gel polish colors, yielding digits more dazzling than a freshly polished comet. The salon staffers place a special emphasis on hygiene and safety, sanitizing reusable materials for 30 minutes before and after each use. They often give away their nail files and buffers after a single use, so clients can use the supplies at home. The spa menu includes waxing services, eyebrow and eyelash tinting, and lash extensions.
As visitors await their time in the spotlight, they can sip one of more than 20 complimentary drinks or surf the web with free Wi-Fi. They can also soak in the salon’s interior, which encloses eight lux adult spa chairs and two mini spa chairs, as well as a flat-screen TV and decorative plants.
Parisian Nail Salon's nail gurus dote on digits with the 25-minute express Parisian spa pedicure, a luxurious treatment that deluges sandal-weary piggies with torrents of spa salts and essential oils. After human paws are thoroughly soothed in a gentle footbath, one of these seasoned staffers conditions cuticles and buffs skin with sanitized instruments, preparing feet for public exhibition in flip-flops and open-toed picture frames. Then, they'll slather softening lotion into cozy nail beds before adding prismatic pop to toe canvases with the polish of your choosing.
At Hanna Nails, a series of manicures, pedicures, waxing, and massage treatments await customers seeking relaxation and beautification. Licensed specialists soak hands and feet before shaping and buffing nails, and then apply eye-catching polish or acrylic nails. Deluxe spa pedicures soothe calf muscles with sea-salt massages, as back and shoulder massages remove upper-body stress. Also available are eyelash extensions and waxing services, which can remove unwanted hair from areas such as the arms, legs, stomach, or brow.
Trained in advanced precision cutting and coloring at Vidal Sassoon Academy, Zahra Negin has spent more than two decades as a stylist, including managing a top salon in Los Angeles. However, in addition to this experience, an equally important credential is her own hair—a mane of dynamic, natural-looking blond. At her eponymous salon, she specializes in color and cuts for blonds, although she and her team can also style hair of other hues with chic cuts, custom highlights, and keratin-straightening treatments. The team also customizes hair to clients' lifestyles, aesthetics, and collections of tiny hats by offering comprehensive consultations, before styling, shampooing, and conditioning hair with products by brands such as Kérastase and Moroccanoil. For an additional customer-friendly touch, the salon offers complimentary extras, such as shampoos with neck massages.
Amy started doing nails at a relative's salon, and it wasn't long before she realized this was her passion. There are two reasons for this. First, Amy is an artist who draws energy from the challenge of adorning her clients' keratin canvases. Second, she loves helping people feel good about themselves. To truly immerse guests in luxury, Amy whips up milk baths, scrubs feet with sugar, applies hot stones, and treats noses to energizing citrus scents. After trimming, massaging, and soaking, she creates patterned and solid nail art alike with polishes by CND, OPI, and Essie. She also applies acrylics with materials that are free of nail bed-damaging MMA.
