On the Road: Estilo Salon and Spa

by Holly Schippers | March 3, 2017

Nestled in a growing suburb of Des Moines, Iowa, Estilo Salon and Spa could give any high-end spa a run for its money.

The manicure tables and pedicure chairs all face a charming pond with a fountain that is populated with geese, falcons, ducks, and blue heron cranes for most of the year.

The nail retail area is conveniently located between the manicure tables and shampoo bowls.

This photo was taken in spring overlooking the pond through the salon’s east window.

There are three nail professionals, five estheticians, four massage therapists, 17 stylists, and seven receptionists at Estilo.

Working on my toes is lead nail technician Melissa Finch who boasts titles such as CND Education Ambassador, Reiki Master, and reflexologist. She also competed in Battle Week during season three of Global Beauty Masters.

Turtles topped off my CND Shellac pedicure in anticipation of snorkeling during the Nail Talk Radio Nail Those Profits Cruise.
