Tucked away in a shopping center off US-31 is a great find! After a recommendation from a friend my cousin, her three daughters and I ventured in for a 'spa day' before the girls left to visit family in AZ. The staff was all very friendly being very patient while we combed over the wall of nail colors. Mostly OPI, China Glaze and other well known brands. The littlest girl was 4 and they were so sweet made her feel completely pampered. The other two (8 and 10) also had a great experience even have them each designs on each hand and foot for free! The girls loved that! The adults enjoyed mani/pedis with trendy colors and they turned out great. The woman even told my cousin she still had at least a week left on her gel mani and she didn't want to take her money if she didn't need it. We were very impressed by that. Everyone was very pleased with the experience, massage chairs were new and great. Water could have been warmer that'd be my only complaint. $35 for a great mani/pedi?...I'll definitely be back! :)

I found this place on accident while bouncing around from nail salon to nail salon, never knowing if I was going to find quality or professionalism. I just got my nails done by a woman names Jolene. She is amazing. She had my nails done in 20 minutes ready for color and she did them the exact way I asked without any language barrier. They are reasonably priced and have large variety of everything. I am so happy I found this place. I will be coming back again next time I need a fill. They even stayed open An extra 10 minutes past close on Saturday night just so I could make it to traverse city after work (50 min drive for me in winter) in time for what I needed. All around great experience. I recommend to anyone that appreciates quality!
I really enjoyed the few times I went to Pavlova, I just moved so I was disappointed that once I had finally found a good stylist I had to move! Melissa was great, she was friendly and caring. She made sure I was comfortable and happy with my style. Once she stayed late so to fit in my cut with the color ( they were out of appointments so I was scheduled to come back the next day) which was so great! To be honest though, I left kind of intimidated, some of the other stylists seemed snotty. I would for sure recommend Pavlova, its been one of the best salons in Traverse since I was an envious little girl watching my Grandma getting her hair done there :)
