Mirrored Image Studio owner Kristi Collins has been working as a stylist for more than a decade and specializes in textured haircuts, relaxers, and hair extensions. She and her team use the Wella color line and Paul Mitchell PM Shines to transform hair and add contrast with highlights, lowlights, and an expertly placed strobe light. The salon's decor echoes the chiaroscuro of their styles: brown and beige earth tones are accentuated by the dark hardwood accents of the cabinetry, creating an atmosphere as natural and relaxing as a kangaroo’s pouch.
At Peel Palace, natural herb peels, microdermabrasions, and other customized facials are all geared toward helping uncover each client's inner princess—that is, a princess with smooth, glowing skin and confidence, not one with amorous predilections for amphibians. Owner and licensed aesthetician Farah Spurgers and her team of skincare professionals rejuvenate faces with aptly titled princess facials and PCA skin peels, as well as providing detoxifying body wraps, massages, and Botox and cosmetic surgery.
While Sousan's repertoire of skincare treatments is backed by advanced technology, you wouldn't guess that upon entering the spa, where a candlelit reception area furnished with velvety wingback chairs lulls waiting patients with the creature comforts of yesteryear. Behind the scenes, though, epidermises are dazzled with a selection of lasers, infrared therapy, and radio-frequency treatments that represent the forefront of contemporary technology and helped put the local fountain of youth out of business.
Skin can be needy. The talented professionals at Natural Skin Creations cater to the many whims of the body’s largest organ with wraps, scrubs, facials, and infrared treatments. Marine algae treatments exfoliate and balance the body, and facials aimed at diverse skin types help to unblock pores and stifled dreams. In addition to solo services, Natural Skin Creations welcomes spa parties, allowing revelers to slip into the black lagoon pool, jacuzzi, or BYOB bar area.
One-on-one consultations precede all appointments at Royal Escape Salon, which allows its talented stylists to craft the perfect look for each head of hair that graces their stations. Recognizing that clients are as unique as the barcodes stamped beneath their hairlines, staffers place a priority on giving each session a personal touch, whether they’re snipping locks, smoothing frizz with Brazilian blowouts, or infusing strands with golden highlights.
A glowing complexion. A vivid new hair color. A set of neatly shaped eyebrows. The beauticians at La Paz Day Spa & Salon create all of these and much more at a welcoming studio highlighted by Aztec-inspired decor. Aestheticians perform nine different facials while stylists revive hair with color treatments and cuts. Inside La Paz's private treatment rooms, waxing technicians remove hair from the body, leaving skin smoother than a buttered saxophone.
