Efficiency is everything at Fifth Avenue Beauty, a full-service hair-nail-tanning salon and spa run by the husband-and-wife team of Steven and Rachel Kand. This versatile establishment offers all the staples—from nail services to deep massage, haircuts to hair removal—at its narrow, fluorescent-lit second-floor establishment while a slightly more spacious and dimly lit third floor is designated for tanning and retail (Swedish Beauty and Australian Gold products). Although the posters of perfectly tanned hotties posing in bathing suits while sporting out-of-date haircuts may be far from au courant, the fact that you can get a cheap manicure or pedicure in under half an hour leaves most customers with no complaints more times than not.
