Nestled within Visual Effects Salon & Spa, Idaho Skin Care’s staff lavishes visages with facial services and saves clients precious minutes during morning routines with permanent cosmetics. Skilled aesthetician Tina Slippy employs GlyMed products to minimize the appearance of blemishes or wrinkles that neither regular moisturizer nor a trip to the dry cleaner could smooth away.

The staffers at Savi Hair Studio, Tan & Nails know that a grumbling stomach can ruin a relaxing spa day as surely as it can ruin a congressional hearing on manners. That’s why they've designed the six-hour Day of Beauty to include a light lunch in between an aromatherapy facial, mani-pedi, shampoo and style, and makeup application. But even with a meal break, this package still can't claim to be a comprehensive survey of the studio's specialties, which also include Swedish and sports massages, bikini waxing, and tanning in a standup booth.
Within whitewashed walls punctuated by deep-blue accents, the stylists and aestheticians at FM Hair Studio treat clients to services ranging from hairstyling to waxing and facials. Ladies can book appointments for professional coloring services or touchups, refresh their faces with chemical peels, or prep for fancy events with professional makeup services and lash extensions. A roster geared toward guys invites gentlemen to drop in for haircuts that include complimentary paraffin hand dips, hot-towel wraps, and scalp massages. Waxing services cater to the hirsute needs of both men and women, as aestheticians evict unwanted follicles during eyebrow touchups, Brazilians, and back waxes that optimize aerodynamics for shirtless skydiving.
Fulfill hair maintenance needs, as well as hair’s need to see and be seen, with a variety of coiffure-pampering services at Salon Rios. Boasting six years of follicular-fiddling experience, Sierra uses a deft hand to dish out each wash and cut ($19), cut and style ($30), and bang trim ($3) with a steady stream of expertise. Tame cowlicks and unruly strands with a perm ($60), or imbue hair with rainbow-sprouting color thanks to partial highlights that bait compliments from passing leprechauns ($50). Stop in to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere, dial down beat-blasting boom boxes, and let the barrage of beautifying services transform tussled hairdos into prim noodle nests without the aid of meatball-infused sauces.
Hair Dynamics’ talented team of nail cosmetologists expertly crafts cutting-edge cuticles. To keep fingers and toes buffed, polished, and happy with their shells, customers can unleash the bedazzling effects of a mani-pedi on the places where digits grow. Though fingers are necessary for tracing turkeys and plugging the unsightly hole in the middles of diamond rings, they are also useful barometers of age and refinement. When prospective employers and old flames gaze at a person’s finger docks and the occasionally bared leg hand, well-kempt nails and cuticles send a message of confidence, sophistication, and youth. After a manicure and pedicure at Hair Dynamics, your feelers and walkers will proclaim your put-togetherness to the crowds of potentially amorous others and jealous, rough-fingered tree branches.
