Nick's Nails & Spa likes to give its clients options. The business stocks more than 500 shades of polish, including 80 gel-based shades, and serves 20 different types of complimentary drinks, from bottled water to cocktails. Once they've settled into the spa chair of their choice, they'll have some more important decisions to make, such as whether they'd like to enhance their mani-pedi with hot paraffin wax or a reflexology massage, or whether they'd prefer to take advantage of other spa services such as eyelash extensions. As nail technicians groom cuticles and shape nails, free Wi-Fi keeps clients comfortably entertained. And, since Nick's Nails & Spa only uses personal nail tools once, customers can bring their tools home with them for use in home manicures or avant-garde floral arrangements.
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.
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.

People are often more comfortable at home than in a medical office or business. To re-create the feeling of home, Solo Haven’s technicians perform personalized hand and foot treatments as their clients relax on comfy leather seats, and an on-staff mailman delivers packages once an hour. Wood tables and wicker accents further paint a homey picture, and they complement the spa’s subtle color scheme of deep red and beige.
The Nail Therapist, Mary Jane Butler, performs mani-pedi and waxing services informed by more than 25 years of salon experience. Having worked in a medical office, Mary learned about the medical consequences of neglecting one’s nails and now offers ingrown-nail and nail-fungus removal alongside cosmetic services. Her experience as a medical assistant also motivated her to provide pedicure services specially designed for diabetics and clown-shoe models.
