$30 for a Shellac Manicure and a Regular Pedicure (Up to $60 Value)
Using a UV light and hardy, shiny Shellac polish, stylist Melanie Niles administers manicures designed to stay put for up to 14 days and strengthen nails. During the pedicure, clients settle into a cozy, heated massage chair as their feet rest in the whirlpool jet tub. Niles applies pure jojoba and avocado oils as she gently removes calluses, grooms cuticles, and soothes feet and legs with hot towels and a massage before decorating toenails with your choice of paraben-free polish.
The Getaway Salon and Spa
Hairstyling runs in Melanie Niles's family. The Getaway Salon and Spa owner's great-grandfather was a barber, and her mother gussied up the coifs of neighbors and immediate family members for years. "I guess it's in my blood," the mother of two muses as she discusses her eight-year tenure as a hairstylist and nailcare specialist.
Niles plies the family trade from the cozy confines of her relaxing salon and day spa. A tropical beach theme permeates the intimate space, where pictures of waves lapping various shores line baby-blue and tan walls and tranquil music plays calmly over the sound system. Niles offers clients a range of hot teas as well as coffee and water to sip while she treats their hair to organic products from brands such as Sukésha.
