Livonia resident Liliona Garcia used to live in Farmington, and when it came time to open her first business, the community was her first choice.
Litito's Nail Salon opened a month ago in the Village Mall at the corner of Farmington Road and Grand River in downtown Farmington. The salon provides manicures, pedicures, waxing, make-up, facials and other services.
"I love this area," said Garcia, who said she trained in Mexico and received her cosmetology license in Michigan. "One day, I just started working doing nails, and here I am."
Litito's stocks Shellac, a gel nail polish that Garcia said dries quickly and lasts at least two weeks without chipping. Clients can select from a range of nail designs, including 3-D and Swarovski crystal features. Waxing isn't limited to eyebrows and facial hair, Garcia said.
"We can do everything ... legs, arms, undearms, face, bikini," she said. Waxing is done in a private room at the back of the shop.
The salon is located at 23612 Farmington Road. You can "Like" the business on Facebook or call 248-274-2300 to learn more.
