Want to get your nails done? Stop at Luminary Hair Co.

This past Friday I met with Carly Moenich, the stylish owner of Luminary Hair Co. to talk about an exciting new venture for the salon: manis and pedis! For those of you Church Hillians who love to pamper yourselves, a nail salon may be another service you’d love or simply a more local alternative to your current nail salon.  Audra Dye, Luminary’s new nail technician, will be a great asset to the salon and to the community. “I think the biggest thing that I’m most excited about is that there are no other nail salons in Church Hill that I know of so we’re excited to offer one more service here…” says Carly.

The Work Area

Starting March 6th, Luminary will start taking appointments through their booking system. Watch their Instagram and Facebook for more details.

What kind of materials will they use?
Good question! The salon will be using all vegan, cruelty-free and 5-free polishes (that means that they don’t have any of the harsh chemicals that people are often concerned with nail services) including The Gel Bottle and Morgan Taylor brands. “This helps to avoid exposure to chemicals you don’t need to be around”, says Carly, “It won’t be a super smelly thing which I think some people are worried about.”

How much will it cost?
The manicures will start at $25 and they will offer specialty services such as custom nail art and hydrating masques that you can add on! The pedicures will start at $45 and also offer specialty add-ons such as hot towel treatments.

Is this open to everyone?
Carly and I bonded through our mutual love of Queer Eye (the Netflix revival of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy) and she made sure to let us know that this is a great maintenance tool for everyone: totally gender-less. So fellas, treat yourselves to a pedicure!
