Inside the Art of Nailz
Maggie has been doing nails a long time: it can be difficult to secure the ideal appointment time without advance notice, and downright impossible to get in the same day.
-- Appointments after 5 p.m. are in especially high demand, wait time for these times can be several months, but you may choose to have your name added to the cancellation list.
The salon itself not only boasts the best location in the city, but also provides an intimate setting for one-on-one services so you can relax and enjoy the quirky conversations that Maggie is famous for.
The Art of Nailz is strictly a "grown-up zone" -- please arrange for childcare when visiting the salon.
Other characters you'll encounter during your visits include: "Mom" -- Maggie's mother, Ginny, licensed nail technician & certified massage therapist who worked side by side with Maggie for several years before health issues forced her into reluctant retirement. Mom now visits the salon on a regular basis just to keep us all entertained!
Maggie today, with just SOME of her glitter.
Cindy -- Certified Massage Therapist located in Suite 410. Cindy often pops in to steal coffee or chocolate throughout the day and to say impulsive and hilarious things that keep us all in stitches.
Bree -- Owner and Lead Stylist at Color Me This Hair Studio directly across the hall in Suite 416
Steve -- another neighbor here on the fouth floor. We're not entirely sure what Steve does, but he pops in often to steal chocolate and hang out with the cool kids.
