Whether she’s enhancing the come-hither stares of doctors, models, or the wives of Arizona Cardinals players, Shawn Geranen believes in giving everyone the star treatment. Complimentary aromatherapy and chocolate await each patron the moment they arrive and help ease them into blissful states of relaxation for the duration of their stays. Using extensions by Xtreme Lashes, Shawn's staff outfits eyes with the same synthetic strands that have plumped up the lash lines of celebrities such as Ashley Greene, Kelly Rowland, and AnnaLynne McCord. The water-resistant extensions are both comfortable and natural-looking, making them a perfect choice for weddings and proms, and lashes may be further enhanced with colored highlights or lash crystals.
When she isn’t busy creating more winsome winks, Shawn stays busy by offering a slate of waxing services and by freshening faces with her other specialty—airbrush makeup. Using an airbrush gun, she carefully applies liquid foundations made from pigmented minerals, creating perfectly blend-able bases that leave faces looking flawless in photos and surveillance tapes. The lightweight formula doesn’t just look good; it also feels great on the skin and can last up to 16 hours, making it a great option for special occasions.

At Images Partner Studios, master stylists, colorists, aestheticians, and massage therapists help patrons look and feel their best in an intimate, private setting. After cuts and colorings, stylists add a complimentary blowout for a finished look. Skincare staff are certified in several specialized treatments including laser services, advanced Rhonda-Allison peels, and HydraFacial resurfacing treatments. For an aromatic-massage session, therapists offer the Massage Flame Experience, in which a lit candle transforms first into warm massage oil, then into a gift that guests take home, and finally into a cozy digs for homeless genies. Staffers also handcraft airbrush spray tans that last about five to seven days.
Carolyn B. Melby has more certifications and licenses than she can shake a stick at?an obvious truth when you consider that she has yet to receive a certification in stick shaking. During her 30-plus years in the skincare industry, Carolyn has earned an aesthetician license, two business degrees, a certification in permanent makeup, and a license in medical laser technology in the state of Arizona. Given such a broad skill set, her similarly wide selection of services comes as little surprise to her clients. Of her many talents, Carolyn most often works with aging, acne-prone, or hyperpigmented skin?conditions that she diligently treats with high-end services such as microdermabrasion, skin-rejuvenation therapy, and permanent makeup applications.
The staff at The Body Shop Massage & Day Spa promotes both inward wellness and outward beauty. Aestheticians use mostly natural ingredients to leave skin on the face or body smoother and more youthful than a freshly shaven stegosaurus. Licensed massage therapists employ five types of modalities to relieve tension and stress. Clients find inner balance during acupuncture treatments and hypnotherapy sessions, which help break unhealthy habits such as smoking, overeating, or sleeping on a bed of hot coals. The lobby area welcomes guests with candle sconces and a pleasing mix of modern and vintage-style d?cor.
Selecting Goldwell, Moroccanoil, and TIGI products from their granite-topped stations, Epic Salon's hairstylists put the finishing touches on new haircuts, freshened colors, or newly straightened locks. In addition to elevating clients? appearances with services such as keratin treatments and highlights, the stylists literally take hair to new heights by deftly twirling strands into elegant updos and stretch styles downward with Great Lengths hair extensions, which boast a texture even nicer than al dente spaghetti. The salon's aestheticians wax away unwanted body hair, treat cheeks to classic European facials, and reveal radiant skin with Jessner, retinol, and TCA peels.
