Visiting Vogue Salon & Permanent Makeup is like going to a concert: your experience varies greatly depending on where you sit. Clients who take a seat in one of the massaging pedicure thrones relax as technicians apply gel or acrylic polish, whereas men, women, and kids who rest against the curved backs and arms of the rotating styling stools chatter as stylists perform haircuts and Redken color treatments. One of the most sought-out seats in the house is the permanent-makeup chair, which resembles a padded pool lounge chair and is used during waxing as well as makeup sessions. The staff prides itself on its inking expertise and even offers a six-month apprenticeship for artists who want to learn how to draw in eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip liner like professionals, or at least like the artist who painted Richard Nixon's official White House portrait.
A hairstylist since 1980, Debbie Ritchey has stockpiled more than enough experience to handle the innate challenges of the beauty industry—one of the largest being getting your own chair and station. So, when she opened her own salon, she decided to take a more selfless approach. Body Spa Green Valley provides a space for independent artists to conduct their work and sell their own products, whether they're stylists, aestheticians, or nail techs. On the salon side, haircuts and color services lend clients fresh looks for everyday wear and special events, such as See Through Hat Fridays at the office. As for spa services, they range from facials, spray-tanning, and waxing to makeup applications and massage.
From the tips of their toes to the tops of their tufts, clients at Roni Josef International Salon & Spa at Stratosphere enjoy an all-over pampering experience at the hands of talented stylists and nail technicians. Whether sitting down for a single-process color treatment, lying back for a therapeutic massage, or awkwardly crouching during a French manicure, customers feel the stress melt away, regardless of the posture they choose. Off-the-beaten-path spa treatments include the Aroma Body Polish?a gentle exfoliation using Mosaic powder?and the detox aromatherapy massage infused with sandalwood, rosemary, and geranium.
A mirror framed in gilded leaves hangs on a pale pink wall, reflecting the faces of clients as a team of stylists perform beauty services. Nail technicians dip hands and feet in paraffin wax for added softness before covering tips in a choice of eye-popping hue, and stylists dip their scissors into manes, removing unwanted length and creating chic layers. After accenting facial features with permanent makeup, clients can toss their stash of lipstick tubes and eyeliner pencils or use them to add even more personality to pet rocks.:
Aquamarine walls and black decor accents surround clients at Aqua Salon as they indulge in salon services, which include haircuts, manicures, waxing, facials, and deep-tissue massage.
