Carrie Bradshaw and her cosmopolitan-sipping sisters would love Fairview's new Cosmo Nail Bar and Salon (19 Alma Crest). Instead of sucking back cocktails, owner Chirine Issa offers healthy smoothies to her clients in the lounge/loft style salon.

"I entered the industry with goals to open a salon of my own and watch it grow, and when this location came up, I knew it was time for me to get to work," says Issa, who opened up shop July 1. "I was working as an Esthetician out of the country for a couple of years, and when Iwas home visiting, this space became available. Two of my family members already own businesses in this strip mall for a few years, so I knew the potential and the amount of traffic in the location."

Cosmo Nail Bar and Salon offers everything from waxing, esthetics and hair services –from cuts to dyes, perms and foils, too. For further information call 406-6060 or visit
