Star Nails' aestheticians have been pampering locals inside their full-service salon and spa for a decade. Their mani-pedis come with hot-towel treatments and an option for gel color polish from Shellac or OPI. When they're not beautifying digits, they're revivifying complexions during facial treatments, alleviating stress with hot-stone massages, and preempting mascara and dry-erase markers with permanent-makeup applications.
In the foyer, wrought-iron bars curl up the salon's windows, casting ivy-like shadows across the clay-brown walls. Faux marble tiles guide guests toward private spa rooms for relaxing treatments such as facials, therapeutic massages, and lava-lamp viewings. Further down the hall, an open salon area invites hair renovation with sleek layers, restorative condition treatments, and bold highlights. Clients may also solicit expert nail tech Tina Harrison who draws on more than 32 years of experience for her specialty designer tips, Minx nails, or mani-pedis with long-lasting CND or OPI polish.
Though other spas may put more emphasis on massages or tanning, Glamour Nails & Spa makes fingernails and toenails the stars of the show. Inside the warmly lit space, the staff of nail technicians pamper hands and feet with a slate of manicures and pedicures that attend to cuticles and skin. They shape nail beds, moisturize skin with fruit-filled scrubs, and slough away callouses to reveal the smooth skin beneath.
Patrons can hold up their newly colored nails next to glowing skin thanks to an array of facials and permanent cosmetics. They can also host pampering parties inside the space complete with food, drinks, and manicures.
Flat-screen TVs pipe in professional-grade celebrity faces as nail techs work to gussy up fingertips and toe tops. Skilled aestheticians exfoliate and renew complexions with signature facials and decorate digits with sleek color polish. Rows of plush and cozy pedicure chairs invite guests to take a load off with the help of amenities, such as ceramic soaking basins, padded leather cushions, and gas-powered nail files.
Inside Jin's Studio 35 Hair & Nails, owner Jinsun Matarese transforms locks from frizzy tendrils to sleek tresses through keratin treatments, Brazilian blowouts, and Japanese hair-straightening techniques. Drawing on her training in Japan, Jin skillfully uses the salon's Japanese hair-straightening system to tame unwanted curls. In addition to smoothing locks, she and her stylists cut and color manes, adding carefully blended highlights and lowlights to create natural-looking tones. Jin’s Studio rounds out beauty treatments with nail services; waxing; full-body, custom spray tans; or full-consciousness swaps of your mind into another patron's body.
The technicians at St. Tropez Nail Spa stay abreast of advancements in mani-pedi science. In addition to applying acrylic nails, they paint on chip-resistant shellac as an alternative to flakier polishes. They also embellish fingers with NexGenNails, which avoid the nail-bed damage caused by certain acrylics and the distinctive smell caused by painting your nails with expired ketchup. Their services encompass skin treatments as well; a leg mask and exfoliation top off the spa pedicure, and facials and permanent-makeup applications round out the spa menu.
