La Barberia

La Barberia offers top-quality service without the snobbish attitude. Unlike nail salons in shopping malls, La Barberia offers privacy and comfort -- customers are seated on plush chairs in a small separate room. And unlike posh spas in the suburbs, this one is low on employees with diva attitude. It's also affordable, with prices ranging from $12 for a basic buff-and-polish to $60 for a full pedicure that includes a half-hour foot-and-leg massage.
