The welcoming staff at Salon Tii Gavo ushers clients into their warm southwestern studio for a full range of transformative grooming services. A trendy feathering service installs three wispy plumes into coiffures, creating a bohemian look so flattering it makes other hairdos perm up in jealousy. Hair-havers can choose the feathers' placement for a custom style that lasts for up to six weeks and withstands washing, blow-drying, flat-ironing, and curling.
Venus Salon and Spa's staff addresses nearly any beauty or relaxation need with their full menu of treatments. Stylists in the salon work within the chocolaty yet inedible frames of full-length mirrors to alter strands' length, shape, and color. Down the hall, aestheticians extract grime with the help of Dermalogica products, while airbrush artists harvest bronzy glows with organic spray tanning formulas. At the nail stations, technicians pluck feet freshly exfoliated with a sea-salt scrub from gilded pedicure bowls before brushing on OPI or Shellac polish.
The specialists at ILash Factory favor eyelash extensions made from fine materials, be they soft silk, feathery faux mink, or shimmery genuine unicorn tail. They affix luxurious extensions in a variety of sizes to natural lashlines one by one, arranging them in a choice of looks that include dramatic, cat-eye, and natural. After the initial application, which can take up to two hours, the lash specialist offers follow-up appointments during which they touch up and restore extensions after weeks of wear.
At Silhouette Organic Beauty Lounge, guests enjoy a completely organic experience. Along with the organic hair and skincare products—many of which are also vegan, gluten-free, or wheat-free—the beauty lounge also provides local, organic teas for guests. The spa even features LED lighting, which is softer on the eyes than fluorescent lighting or interrogations done with the spotlights used to illuminate the space shuttle at night.
While the choice of beauty services can vary widely—from a keratin treatment to lash extensions or a mani-pedi—there's a common purpose in all of them. The staff aims to have guests leave feeling refreshed and beautiful, which is easier to guarantee since there are no harmful chemicals used in the services.
When the staffers at Desert Sun Tanning Salons say they can fix your problems with a cocktail, they’re not talking about libations. Instead, they’re referring to a method that combines two types of bronzing styles. After lying in a traditional sunbed, patrons pop into an automatic spray-tanning booth. The idea is that the UV rays in the bed trigger melanin production and open the pores so that the spray tan goes on darker and lasts longer. Of course, customers can indulge in either of these options separately, choosing from a fleet of machinery that includes Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless tanning booths and silver-, gold-, and platinum-level sunbeds.
They can also undergo a session that doesn’t change the skin’s tone, but, rather, tones it. Red-light therapy drenches the skin in fluorescent light that boosts collagen production in order to firm skin, tighten muscles, and transform sagging bloomers into boxer briefs. Regular salon visitors can consider purchasing a membership, which entitles them to tanning-bed upgrades and discounts on skincare products.
Whether it's building a base tan for a tropical vacation or getting the ideal glow for a special occasion, the staff of Planet Bronze Tanning help tailor visits by ushering clients toward the appropriate services. Beyond the modest storefront, private rooms house UV beds in a variety of levels, equipped with UVA/UVB bulbs that bronze skin in as little as 12 minutes. Planet Bronze also offers sunless-tanning products. Its professional custom airbrush sessions swathe skin in a gentle solution that transforms into a deep tan that lasts up to 10 days with proper avoidance of human car washes.
The stylists at Gina Salon (located at Salon Melini) have a shared love: showing their clients how great hairstyle can dramatically change their entire look. They do this by snipping hair into a fresh style, adding new texture or length with perms, straightening, and extensions, and improving hair health by coating strands with damage-repairing deep conditioners or spoon-feeding them chicken soup. Each service starts with a free consultation to determine the client's desired outcome and give them peace of mind, so they can sit back, relax, and just enjoy the experience.
