Debbie Edmonds, nail technician at Reveal Salon & Aesthetics.
March 2016: If you want to feel good and look good for your busy spring calendar – weddings, graduations, proms, baby showers, perhaps an important job interview – don’t forget about your nails. Chipped polish, nails that have been chewed down, brittleness and discoloration – unsightly nails can ruin your entire look.
Quality is important in finding a manicurist. Stopping into a random nail salon can be risky. How experienced is the person doing your nails? Do you leave with pain under your nails, or cuts along your cuticles? Salons that don’t have high sanitary and cleaning standards can lead to infections and discomfort. Clients of Debbie Edmonds can rest assured this is not the case at Reveal Salon & Aesthetics. Debbie has 30+ years of experience as a nail technician, and many of her clients stayed with her since she began. She has been at Reveal for the past three years, and says her clients enjoy the pleasant, clean atmosphere of the salon.
“Many of my new clients show surprise that their nails do not hurt after I give them a manicure or apply acrylic nails. It should not be a painful experience – it should be gentle and relaxing,” says Debbie. Reveal Salon’s goal is to maintain the highest standards of service, cleanliness and client satisfaction.
Debbie provides women and men of all ages services including manicures, pedicures, acrylic nails and Shellac. “Shellac is a popular option because it allows you to grow your natural nails, and it comes in a variety of colors. The polish stays on for two weeks without chipping.”
Pedicures are always a big hit. Guys, don’t forget: pedicures are not just for the ladies! Pedicures are beneficial for everyone. They help improve your foot health by removing dirt and bacteria that can lead to foot problems, reduce stress, eliminate foot odor, prevent ingrown toenails, and make your feet look good. You shave, shower and cut your hair; why not take time for your feet as well? A few options Debbie offers with pedicures include top-quality Cuccio Naturalé scrubs, sugar scrubs, hot towels, and massage with lotion. If you want a truly relaxing experience, a pedicure is the way to go.
In addition to Debbie’s practices of cleanliness and sanitation, her gentle hands, and the salon’s pleasant atmosphere, another benefit to becoming her client is that she truly takes the time to get to know you and develop a relationship. “I enjoy my work, and my clients become my friends. We talk about our lives, our work and our families,” she says. “I learn their preferences and what services they like. I also get to know my clients’ skin, and have even found skin cancer spots before and recommended seeing a doctor.” Nail services are not simply about looking good – they are important for the health of your hands and feet as well.
Debbie and her husband Troy, who is a stylist at Reveal, have been married for 43 years. The couple has two children and five grandchildren. Debbie says many of her clients will schedule appointments to have their nails done, followed up by a haircut from Troy.
Nicole McGinnis, salon owner and licensed aesthetician, provides a variety of skin care services at Reveal, including solutions for anti-aging and adult acne, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, custom corrective facials, and OxyGeneo, a breakthrough anti-aging treatment that oxygenates skin from within while exfoliating and infusing it with potent regenerating nutrients.
The Reveal team also includes four other stylists and a master barber. The salon was voted Best in the World by Tulsa World Weekend readers in 2014 and 2015.
