Occasionally, Mood Swings Aveda Salon and Skin Spa moonlights as a studio. Sometimes camera-toting members of the media stop by to check out this season’s trends or new hair products. Other times, models strut or flutter from imaginary wind gusts during Urban Tribe and other fashion photo shoots. Perhaps most importantly, Mood Swings periodic studio space hosts educational seminars for its talented team of stylists, who learn advanced tips in coloring and other techniques from Aveda professional instructors.
This commitment to the art and science of hair justifies Arizona Foothills magazine selecting Mood Swings Aveda Salon and Skin Spa as its best salon of 2011. The praise coincides with that from AZCentral.com, which named Mood Swings Best Trendy Salon for “translating cool, avant-garde styles into wearable, everyday looks.” Stylists craft these looks with natural, plant-based products from Aveda, and supplement the service with pampering that can include a complimentary scalp massage, hand facial, and finishing touches to clients’ makeup. A comprehensive services menu treats the entire body, ranging from natural skin products that rejuvenate complexions to pedicures that soothe feet with a dual-jet therapeutic whirlpool after unsuccessful attempts to walk barefoot across a hot charcoal grill.
In 2008, Alli Webb, a former Hollywood publicist and NYC-trained stylist, pioneered the in-home blowout with a select roster of clients. Her clientele soon outgrew her home, so she opened Drybar in Brentwood, California. Drybar has since gone national with an ever-growing roster of 36 shops, including one in the Scottsdale Quarter that, much like the Michelin man?s inspiration board, is dedicated solely to blowouts. In 2012, Drybar expanded to a second location in Phoenix's Camelback Corridor. Alli and her stylists fan hair into one of nine styles, from straight and sleek 'dos to loose beach waves and soft curls. The service menu also encompasses whimsical updos and blowout add-ons, such as scalp massages.
Alli?ranked 35 on Fast Company's 2013 list of the most creative people in business?stays true to her roots by occasionally dispatching stylists to perform blowouts at homes, but her bright, spacious shops offer a welcoming alternative. Yellow accents in the form of fresh flowers, a chandelier made from hair dryers, and end tables pop from a backdrop of dazzling white walls, counters, and chairs. The simple yet chic space sets the stage for parties complete with Drybar's signature service.
After becoming licensed in 1985, Kimberly Eckles, recipient of 944 Magazine's 2006 Editors Choice Award for Best Facial among others, had the talent to not only train at Elizabeth Arden's esteemed New York City spa, but to then work at renowned destinations such as Maine Chance and Camelback Inn. But over time, she felt unfulfilled by working mostly with vacationers, and longed to build a clientele of regulars. So she struck out on her own and opened Kimberly's Facial Boutique, where she administers the wide range of treatments she's learned over the years.
Those interested in more traditional services could book a signature facial, but her specialty lies in more advanced treatments. Her service menu includes everything from oxygen and AHA peels to LED light therapy and myotonology, a treatment that firms skin with low-level currents. But Kimberly still practices the luxurious touches that she picked up at those destination spas: treatments include extras like hot stones, hand and foot pampering, advanced facial massage, and adorable drink umbrellas.
In 2009, True REST Float Spa founders Nick and Holly Janicki set out to discover the most effective modes of helping clients naturally achieve blissful states. Their efforts have resulted in the valley?s lone flotation therapy center. In addition to the relaxing properties of flotation, the staff believes in its rejuvenating properties as well. An internal study with clients who had minor to moderate muscle strains, pulls, and tears showed a 20?50% reduction in pain with regular sessions. The decrease in sensory information is also purported to help diminish depression, anxiety, and allodoxaphobia.
The spa oversees more than clients drifting inside the flotation therapy pods. Its oxygen bars fill lungs and saturate bloodstreams with oxygen-rich air, working to heighten awareness and relaxation and enhance the mood. NASA-created filters screen out nitrogen, argon, and other trace gasses from the air, leaving air four to five times more oxygenated and plants four to five times more jealous. Elsewhere in the spa, tight muscles meet their match against time-honored massage strokes.
