CONTRIBUTED BY TUTI HAWKINS
I have finally found my go to salon here in Adana! I have tried nails salons both on base and off base, but none have come close to the kinds of services I am use to in the States. What I mean by that is none of the ones I’ve been to have the Spa Chairs that massages your back while you are getting your pedicure!
What I love most about this place is how nice and relaxing the place is. When you walk in for your appointment (walk-ins are welcomed) you are greeted and asked if you would like some hot tea (Çay), Turkish coffee or water. The ladies at this salon are very professional. They play classical instrumental music to keep the ambiance nice and calm. I was thoroughly impressed with this cute & very clean salon located on the busy Ziyapaşa Bulvarı.
The salon is very easy to find. From Incirlik AB, take a right onto the D400. Drive on the D400 for about 6-7 miles then turn right on Ziyapasa Bulivari. Drive down about 2 miles until you see Caribou Coffee on the left hand side and Starbucks Coffee on the right hand side. Start looking for street parking. Pro Nails is located upstairs next door to Caribou Coffee. You will have to get buzzed in to enter the building. You can’t miss it!!
Nail polish options? A TON! They have everything from light pink/neutral colors to vibrant bright blues, yellow, reds etc. The place is a pretty good size salon. In addition to nails, the salon offers other services such as facials & waxing. I would recommend making an appointment for those services, but you should be able to do a walk-in for manicure and pedicure fairly easy. There are four very comfortable massage chairs used for spa pedicure.
Price? Very reasonable! I use to pay about $35-$55 for a mani-pedi at nail salons in the States. For 70 TL you get a spa mani-pedi combo; which includes a nice exfoliation, foot massage, hand massage, polish and warm towels. Of course, if you want acrylic, shellac, gel or prefer long lasting (2 weeks) nail polish there is an additional costs.
I brought a friend with me; we went on a weekday around 10:00am. We had the place to ourselves and had the best time relaxing and chatting it up while our feet were getting pampered. I’m sure the salon won’t have any problems hosting a big group of ladies who would like to have a day of pampering amongst friends. And after you are all done getting pampered, you can have a nice lunch at the many great restaurants all within walking distance!
Oh! I almost forgot: be sure to bring small TL for tip or else you’ll be inclined to over tip. They had a hard time making change for us when we went. Probably because we were their first customers of the day!
