This fall, 11-year-old Shayna Slatkin will start middle school. Before her first class, she and her mother will cover all the usual bases: shopping for new notebooks, pencils and erasers - and visiting a spa for a new look. Shayna, who lives in Baltimore, is a client at Salon & Spa Kids, a Pikesville hair salon and day spa that caters to the youthful set. With bright colors and scaled-down furniture, the salon provides a welcoming environment for preschool to high school-age kids, who can relax with a DVD as they get a haircut or lounge in a butterfly pedicure chair during spa treatments.

From time to time I tease my new bride by re-enacting the funniest scene from Eddie Murphy's film "Boomerang." When she's in bed, under the covers, I mischievously reach down to uncover her toes.In "Boomerang," Eddie Murphy checked toes to determine whether a woman was suitable for marriage. She could be knock-down gorgeous, but if her toes bore the scars of mercilessly tight high heels, he was out of that bed faster than you could say bunions.Lucky for me, my wife has never pulled back the covers to look at my toes.

Truc Thi Ly Nguyen was learning English and studying for her driver's license. Everyone drove in the United States, so the Vietnamese immigrant told others she wanted to, as well. She worked at T&T Nails, an East Baltimore salon across from a chicken shack and a tax shop. Manicures with color gel finishes sell for $20, according to a sign tacked to the wall near a Safe Streets poster admonishing people to "Stop shooting, start living. " On Monday, Nguyen was crouched at the foot basin of a man receiving a pedicure, when a man walked in, aimed a gun at the seated customer, exchanged words and fired repeatedly.

Think of summer's strappy sandals as bikinis for the foot: When you wear them, you should make sure that what they expose isn't going to embarrass you. And that means getting your feet in shape, if only cosmetically. You can do it yourself, but the best way -- at least the most pleasurable way -- is to get a pedicure at a salon or spa. It will cost roughly between $35 and $50 with tip and last about a month (especially if you apply a coat of clear nail polish once a week to protect and add gloss)

And someone will be arriving soon to take you to your spa treatment. It feels like a true getaway, a mini-vacation. And yet, you are in Abingdon, right next to Wegmans.

When one thinks of Calvin Klein, certain words come to mind - cool, classic and simple. Now Klein fans can add the word "hip-hop" to the list. The designer has just made available limited edition bottles of his unisex fragrance CK One that have been tagged by three street artists from around the world. The bottles exhibit artists Espo, Futura and Delta's "personal interpretation of CK One - reflecting their own style, their own personality, their own tag," according to the company. We have no idea what they mean.

Typically a pedicure entails soaking the feet in a tub of warm water. But the nail technicians at Living Dolls Hair Design Studio in Highland have introduced a soakless pedicure that salon manager Lynn Lazzara calls “cleaner, greener and healthier than regular pedicures and uses almost no water.” During a soakless pedicure, the feet are wrapped in plastic with a hot towel placed over them. “We let everything sit for a few minutes and wipe off the feet,” Lazzara says. “Then we use a foot file to reduce calluses.” If you see some new faces at Living Dolls, it's because the staff of Lazzara's former shop, Biago Hair Salon and Spa, joined forces with Jane Caswell, owner of Living Dolls, last summer for economical reasons.

The school of tiny, metallic-gray fish chomped away at Michelle Lee's bare feet; some seemed to enjoy her heels and insoles while others jockeyed for the chance to nibble between her toes. "It tickles!" exclaimed the Alexandria, Va., resident between giggles, her jerky motions making splashes in the water-filled glass tank. Her laughter spread among already lively customers at Yvonne Hair, Nail and Tan Salon in Alexandria, where most everyone is getting a kick out of the latest pedicure craze: imported fish that eat away dead skin cells, leaving feet soft and smooth.

Face it: It's not the thought that counts.

Here are some ideas for wowing her May 13 with the pampered-parent gift package you know she deserves: Peaceful pink Think pink in general. You want Mom to forget the years of back talk you've given her (at least for the day) and settle into a delighted, if duped, state, right?

The low point came as I crouched behind a hotel ice machine, counting a stack of twenties into the palm of a stripper named Exotic 4. "Which one's the bride?" he whispered, unzipping a wheeled suitcase that contained, among other items, a fringed purple g-string and a fireman's suit. "The one with the freckles," I whispered back. He was cute, I thought, momentarily pleased. He'd better be, after the time that I, the dutiful Maid of Honor, had spent surreptitiously scrolling through photos of exotic dancers as bosses cruised past my cubicle.
