What makes a great nail salon or spa? I think about this question a lot. The salon of my dreams would be ultra clean and bright with tons of natural lighting as well as bright overhead lights. The nail tables would be unique and modern and the pedicure area would be so comfortable clients would have a hard time staying awake. I would offer my guests refreshing treats and showcase live music occasionally. I don’t have plans in the near future to open a salon just in case anyone was wondering because my dream salon would require large amounts of financing and I know in order for it to be uber successful, I would have to devote my life to it, which isn’t my top priority at the moment, but a girl can dream right? 🙂
I’ve put together a few salons that I think would be an amazing place to spend the afternoon. Although they aren’t necessarily my dream salon, these salons are dreamy in their own right and I hope one day I can visit each of these salons for some pampering!
1. ten20 Nail Salon, Boulder, Colorado
I love the industrial look of ten20 Salon! I love the big cushy chairs for the pedicures and I love that they have a mega screen TV where you can watch movies while you’re getting your nails done! This salon would be the perfect place for a girls day out!
2. L’acqua Nail Spa Lounge, Dallas, Texas
This salon is close to how I imagine my dream salon! I love how it has two levels, I love the white interior–it gives it a clean, sanitary, crisp atmosphere, and I love the bright shots of brilliant blue color throughout! I would add a white piano in a corner somewhere and it would be perfect!
3. Color Salon By Michael Boychuck, Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada
Las Vegas has evolved into one of the premier luxury spa destinations in the world, and Color Salon by Michael Boychuck at Caesar’s Palace is one of the ultimate spots to pamper yourself while vacationing in the Nevada desert. I love the posh decor of Color Salon. It has an eclectic, serene atmosphere that Boychuck explains “…has been designed to have a minimal amount of color pigment in it. This allows the stylist to see the real skin, eye and hair tone for max results. It is the most beautiful salon in the world in the greatest city in the world.”
4. Auberge Du Soleil, Napa Valley, California
My dream salon would have a panoramic view of amazing scenery–imagine sitting in the comfiest pedicure chair of your life gazing out at the magnificent ocean or majestic mountains or in the case of the Napa Valley Auberge Du Soleil, beautiful rambling vineyards. This resort and spa is definitely at the top of my dream vacation list!
5. Blush Nail Lounge, New York, New York
I love how cozy Blush Nail Lounge looks! I love how the nail tables look like restraunt booths and the pedicure chairs are built on individual platforms. I love the exposed brick walls. Hopefully I’ll be able to visit NYC and check out Blush Nail Lounge soon! 🙂
