When you want your nails done and you want it now, this is the place to be. The atmosphere is more efficiency than spa-like, though massage chairs, TVs and plenty of reading material provide a relaxing atmosphere. The facility is huge, with many workers, so there is seldom a need to worry about getting in at a specific time. Walk-ins are their specialty. The workers are trained to upsell, so don’t be surprised when you’re offered an eyebrow wax. Bottom line: Ladue Nails is a great place to get a manicure and pedicure done affordably and fast.
Nestled in the charming Central West End area of St. Louis, Lemon Spalon is a departure from your typical salon/spa experience. Stylists are cutting-edge and educated, bringing in trends from the coast that, truthfully, you might not be able to find at just any old Midwestern salon. This includes innovations like the Brazilian Blowout, which is only offered at a handful of salons across St. Louis. The spa itself is cozy and adorable, with a retro vibe. You might be able to say hi to the owner’s Jack Russell terrier, who’d often lounging about. Lemon Spalon is not at the cheap end of the spectrum, but satisfied customers will attest that it’s money well spent.
