Exquisite Effects Salon provides nearly all of clients' beauty services in one stop. Precision haircuts, color weaves, creative updos, and coloring treatments incorporate products from Joico, Paul Mitchell, and Matrix Biolage. OPI and CND polishes adorn digits during manicures and spa pedicures. The staff also accents eyes with lash extensions and lash and brow tinting. For those tired of dipping their earlobes in glitter every morning, the salon also offers ear piercing.
Natalie’s nimble fingers give eyes an extra pop with flutter-worthy eyelash extensions. She applies the tiny fringe inside Hair Play & Day Spa, alongside other beauty pros who cut hair and add eye-catching highlights or strategically placed holiday lights.
Soundproof and lightproof, the smooth, curvy pods at InSPArations Float Spa let clients enjoy a few moments totally removed from the outside world. Gallons of warm water intermixed with Epsom salt fill the tanks, providing the highly buoyant, skin-temperature "bed" that simulates the sensation of floating. Sensory deprivation sessions have been shown to yield a range of benefits, such as increased concentration, better sleep, and reduced stress.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Raw Image Salon's hair stylists snip and shape locks into alluring compositions while working closely with clients to ensure their new looks reflect their tastes and favorite Civil War generals. The salon, located near the Layton mall, also offers specialty hair treatments administered by certified stylists, such as Brazilian Blowouts using the Marcia Teixeira keratin treatment, which straightens curls and tames frizz for 10–12 weeks.
Indulge Spa & Salon's services cover beauty both inside and out. Staff members teach clients the Emotional Freedom Technique, a style of acupressure used to reduce negative emotions and vanquish pain; they also use red-light therapy to soothe bodily aches. But their treatments also include traditional spa-and-salon selections: tanning, collagen injections, and cellulite-reduction treatments round out the beauty offerings.
