At The Man Spa, the staff of high-trained stylists brings a touch of class and fashion acumen to the chair during grooming services tailored solely to gentlemen. Doling out exquisite haircuts, facials, and massages in a fun and relaxed environment, the female stylists primp and prim men with luxurious treatments designed to help men look and feel at the top of their game. Hot towel shaves and sports mani-pedis round out the treatments in this lavish club atmosphere.
Urban Esthetics' location is a fitting one. The skin-centric spa is nestled within a historic building that's been meticulously maintained. Just as developers have preserved the mature building's grandeur, Urban Esthetics' aestheticians preserve the skin's natural beauty. To that end, the team customizes facials and microdermabrasions to meet the clients' unique needs, restoring the face's youthful glow while paring down wrinkles and other signs of aging or impersonating Shar Peis a little too well. Staffers don't just focus on faces, though—they also provide body wraps, scrubs, hot stone treatments, and lash and brow tinting.
Part of the venerable Paul Mitchell network, the Salt Lake City school channels its doctrines of style and technique through a squad of students supervised by professional instructors. Inside the school?s 22,000-square-foot facility, beauty-gurus-to-be assuredly snip away during haircuts, each of which includes a five-minute scalp massage, and slather on lactic-acid peels, each of which includes a five-minute memoriam to dead skin cells. Tresses can be smoothed into submission with a flatiron, curled into a hirsute coil, or stylishly swept into an updo. Students complement these many shapes with bold or subtle coloring treatments, sometimes relying on block or dimensional color to add depth.
Paul Mitchell the School trains its students to be citizens of the world as well as ambassadors of beauty. The school sets an example worth following with its eco-friendly practices and support for charitable causes that give back to the local community.
InStyle, People magazine, and Salt Lake magazine’s Best of the Beehive 2010 have lauded the nearly endless collection of girlie products, gifts, and accessories pouring from Got Beauty's boutique salon, petite day spa, and Sugarhouse Shop. Owner Tammy Taylor wants her guests to feel like a kid wandering through a candy store. But instead of cotton candy and gumdrops, she and her team shower clients with beauty treatments, from the full-service Bumble and bumble salon's coloring and hair-extension treatments to the intimate day spa's anti-aging facials and shellac mani-pedis. Amid the facility's boutique shop, an aisle of accessories hand-picked by the owner include Butter nail polishes, Hobo wallets, aromatic Voluspa candles, and books on how to study the Enlightenment without succumbing to its wig-centered hair culture.
Next Full Service Salon's staff includes nine hair stylists and two nail technicians. At salon chairs, the stylists sculpt new 'dos, straighten strands, and add color to hair. Meanwhile, nail techs accent digits with colorful acrylics and chip-resistant Shellac. The staff also applies makeup and waxes eyebrows.
Stylists Cydnie and Emorie help clients to reach new heights of hair-related style within the chic confines of The Salon at Image Studios. Armed with products from brands such as Davines, they create face-flattering cuts, condition locks, and transform the hair with rich color.
