A spa is never greater than the sum of its parts. It takes a team of aestheticians, massage therapists, and stylists to carry out the services that keep clients beautiful, relaxed, and healthy. At Fuzion Skin & Body, this truth reflects the staff's belief in a holistic, integrated approach?making each service as much about wellness as beauty. The spa?s facials, for example, improve both the health and appearance of skin with custom cleansing, exfoliation, and masks, while sessions of reiki, reflexology, and other body treatments help balance energy and remove toxins. Of course, Fuzion Skin & Body offers purely aesthetic services such as sugaring, too, promoting wellness by helping clients avoid the impulse to cover their bodies with glitter glue.
Sheera Amundson, the owner of Addicted to Nails, is passionate about nailcare. A 14-year veteran of the trade, Sheera harbors a particular fondness for rock-star nail enhancements. Her flashy designs have even caught the eyes of Perfectify Magazine, where she publishes her two cents from time to time. Sheera's staff believe in the importance of educating their clients about proper nailcare and sanitation. Their nailcare arsenal includes the Sani Bowl–a special sanitized pedicure bowl–and products from Creative Nail Design, Young Nails, and OPI , which they uses to shape fingernails during their signature french manicures.
Many nails arrive at Shears Edge Hair & Nail Salon in a dismal state, brandishing chipped polish or?worse yet?completely naked. Yet, cheerful nail technicians are always ready to take them under their wing, clipping and filing before dressing each nail in a thick coat of polish. Day after day, the staff tends to the last length of each finger and toe, covering tips in CND, OPI, and shellac polish. Additionally, clients can lend hair to hairstylists for a chic cut, or extend an arm or leg so a waxing specialist can gently remove its hair or yell at it through a megaphone until it falls out.
When the Phoenix New Times consulted Rambha Singh for an article on the techniques behind brow threading, they saw first-hand why her nickname is "magic hands." "I look at my client just like an artist," she told them, and with more than two decades worth of experience to back her up, it seems like an appropriate comparison. Wielding a thin, 100% cotton thread in a double-strand formation, she maneuvers across the brows, upper lip, or other area of the face with steady hands, removing each unwanted hair at the root.
Singh and her team tend to clients in search of threading, hairstyling, skin care, massages, and nail services in the four well-appointed suites that make up Rambha Day Spa & Salon. Like Singh, the stylists pack years of experience into their tool-chests, each boasting more than 10 years behind a stylists' chair. A couples' treatment room welcomes pairs for simultaneous spa outings, while vents above nail treatment areas make sure that the aroma of polish doesn't linger.
The staff at Love AdoraBella keeps up with the latest trends and techniques by taking classes offered by Young Nails, a product line with a bold, youthful edge. Leveraging such lessons, the technicians apply their skills during services such as glitter-enhanced pedicures and gel-overlay manicures. Though the beauty haven specializes in nails, its staff can also beautifies clients with customized makeup applications or product recommendations pulled from the salon’s online boutique.
