The expert beauty mages at Amoré Salon and Spa transform lackluster fingers with Shellac polish that lasts for up to 14 days. Manicures start as a trained technician battles advancing cuticles, sculpts nails, and buffs finger shields until they are lustrous enough to stand up to laser pointers at office presentations. Nail artists slather chip-free polish onto each digit’s canvas, coating them in the customer’s chosen hue. Finally, a UV light congeals each feeler’s newfound decorum to instantaneously confirm the gel-like polish and seal in a mirror-like finish. The finger pros can also quickly remove any unsavory polish, removing the evidence of touching a freshly painted escalator. Picture windows shed light on bamboo plants growing in the earth-toned salon and offer guests views of the Pearl District as they sip complimentary beverages, such as wine and tea, or troll the free WiFi for oyster-shucking tips.
Amoré Salon and Spa
From their cushy styling chairs, clients of Amoré Salon and Spa can watch shoppers bustle through the upscale Pearl District outside the studio's ample, sun-soaked windows. But in here, no one is in any hurry. With careful attention, the salon's artistic, fashion-forward hairstylists create one-of-a-kind coifs that run the gamut from multicolored punk looks to timeless bobs and long styles achieved with Great Lengths hair extensions. The extensions are crafted with real, ethically sourced human hair, and attach to existing locks with bonds that expand and contract just like the wearer's natural hair or peacock-like plumage.
In the spa realm, aestheticians revamp complexions with Jan Marini facials that target severe acne, dryness, or unsanctioned games of pore whack-a-mole. Waxing specialists don’t skimp on skincare either—in addition to using gentle Cirepil wax, facial-inspired treatments for backs and bikini lines reverse blemishes and discomfort caused by ingrown hairs. Nail specialists, meanwhile, make sure their art stays intact by finishing a number of manicures and pedicures with CND Shellac lacquers, which dry under a UV light to leave a mirrorlike finish that lasts up to 14 days.
