Beaute Box's seasoned aestheticians have exercised their talents from coast to coast and now roam the Dayton area to ferry beauty directly into clients’ comfort zones by revitalizing nails and evicting unwanted tufts. During a Shellac manicure, a nail technician moisturizes hand digits before gently trimming and buffing cuticles to a shapely form. Customers then choose their preferred color of Shellac polish, which sheaths nails in a lustrous lacquer that dries instantly under a UV lamp or the breath of an angry bull. Each Shellac-covered finger shingle resists chipping and can maintain its sparkling veneer for up to two weeks.
Licensed aestheticians also perform waxing treatments, which can be done on the top and bottom of legs or on the full nether region with a Brazilian wax. Waxing treatments can be more effective than other traditional methods of hair removal such as shaving, wishing, and rolling around on a yoga mat made of Velcro. Depending on hair growth, waxed smoothness can last between three to six weeks, allowing customers to don a bikini and strut confidently across beaches and airport runways.
At Beaute Box, which channels the "feel of a chic Paris apartment" according to the Dayton Daily News, owner Lisa Scott flaunts skills acquired during nearly two decades of salon artistry. The studio began as a mobile beauty service, but has evolved to fill a space crowded with clocks, statuettes of hands, and candlesticks. Brushes cloaked in long-wear Shellac polish glide across nails, and visitors awaiting custom-designed primping parties lounge on low-slung couches. Giggles drift up to the soaring ceilings as youngsters finish pampering treatments and race through the shop, admiring newly colorful digits or attempting to match polish to an imaginary friend's eyes.
