Slate Studio Straight Up

Supreme mani’s and pedis are stellar in Slate Studio’s artsy and urban chic atmosphere.

Slate Studio offers a stylish, hygienic alternative to thrones, pipes, jets or benches. Custom designed lounge chairs are disinfected after each client by using a medical grade disinfectant and disposable and sterile mani/pedi materials.

Were Serious about Sanitization!

Slate Studio adheres to the most stringent hygiene and sanitization standards and practices, going well above and beyond regulations. As sanitation is a major concern in our industry, it is imperative that our standards are in place for the health and safety of our clients and employees. Outlined below are a few of our policies and practices:

  • We never double dip in our wax!
  • Stainless steel implements are scrubbed, disinfected and sterilized in a bath of Isopropyl Alcohol and medical disenfectant
  • We never reuse anything that cannot be sterilized, such as foot files, nail files and buffer blocks. At Slate Studio, our nail files, foot files, and buffers are only used once per client.
  • Gloves are worn by estheticians for certain procedures.
  • Disposable linens and paper are used in all applicable treatments.
  • Pedicure sinks are scrubbed and soaked with medical grade disinfectant and bleach after each use. Please note; we do not offer 'Spa chairs/Pedicure thrones'
  • Please note that should you presently have a communicable skin condition, we are unable to perform services on the affected area. ie: fungus, warts or any other unknown irritation that may be present. Thank you for your understanding.

PLEASE NOTE: We also do not service anyone who has a fungus, warts, herpes or any other communicable disease. We aren’t trying to be b*%$#!s, but as per health and safety regulations, no spa is allowed to perform services on someone with the above mentioned conditions. So if you have something, please see your doc and come back to us when it’s all cleared up!
