As a tribute to earth sustainability, the expert technicians at Christy's NAILS use mostly organic products during signature manicures and pedicures; freeing the air from the fumes of noxious toxic chemicals. The nail salon also advertises on finger and toe billboards with long-lasting gel shellac polishes, available in a large array of sumptuous colors. Sanitation is a top priority here, as seen by the use of disposable files and buffers, as well as sterilized and sealed metal instruments. Nail services are not all they offer, however—the well-rounded staff further pampers guests with facials and waxing services.
Radiance Salon proprietor Tracy Teutsch arms her brigade of stylists with organic hair and skincare products for haircuts, color treatments, and basic spa services. Highlights and keratin hair-smoothing treatments adorn or de-frizz dos, and regular or shellac-gel polish adorns fingers and toes. Patrons can pamper their mugs with skin-refreshing facials and face-deforesting lip and eyebrow waxes.
The long row of leather pedicure chairs isn’t the token of luxury at The Nail Retreat. Not only do clients leave sporting polish from the salon’s kaleidoscopic array of shades from OPI, Shellac, or Gelish, they also have the option to indulge in manicures with botanically derived grape-seed oils or pedicures with soothing hot stones. Additionally, skincare treatments combine custom blends of products to cleanse, tone, and exfoliate the dermal layers, leaving faces looking as robust and hydrated as an ice sculpture of Hulk Hogan.
The seasoned nail techs of Beautiful Nails Salon, which opened its doors 15 years ago, pamper clients and smarten fingertips with long-lasting Shellac and gel manicures. Sterilized equipment snips nails into the client's favorite shape and gently tends to excess cuticle. New, disposable files and buffers prep fingertip palates for polishing before hands enjoy a soothing massage. CND Shellac gel polish or Harmony Gelish polish keeps fingers from being confused with carrots for up to three weeks with a choice of over 200 colors. For an additional fee, the amiable aestheticians of Beautiful Nails Salon will install white french tips, remove existing gel polish, or call you Nancy Reagan.
Integrated Touch & Bodywork's skilled and licensed technicians deftly remove unwanted hair from nether regions, keeping areas bare for swimsuit season. Delicate hands daub targeted areas with soy wax, which locks on to the follicle fillers and enables quick removal of the hair all the way down to the roots. Lasting approximately 45–60 minutes, the process leaves a parcel of smooth skin that can remain sleek up to four weeks, easily enough time to infiltrate the secret mannequin cabal.
For more than 28 years, stylist Luann Albert has helped clients—including three former Ohio State Buckeyes quarterbacks—get ready for getting seen. Her crack-team of 12 stylists and cosmetologists operate out of a homey studio, full of throw rugs, curio cabinets, and hardwood floors with absolutely no telltale hearts beneath them. Luann cuts and styles hair, but also levels up manes with keratin smoothing sessions and permanent-wave treatments.
Within private and semiprivate rooms, staffers rejuvenate the non-scalp parts of clients with four facials that use Bioelements products, five nail services, and a range of massages, such as the deep-tissue, hot-stone, or less-practiced heavy-boulder massage developed at the Wile E. Coyote School of Beauty.:m]]
