Outside of D.C. in Alexandria, Yvonne Hair & Nail Salon is purportedly one of the few places in the U.S. where you can have your soles smoothed by live fish. Simply submerge your feet in a tank of fresh water where mini members of the carp family–called Dr. Fish–gently nibble off your calluses. For $35, the painless, 15-minute service is followed by a standard filing and polish. It may tickle a bit more than the traditional pedicure, but the results are equally effective–and a lot more memorable.
