At Salon Milano and Spa, plant-based Aveda products lend customized aromatherapy and natural nutrients to salon and spa services. The products' holistic focus matches the manner in which the staff conducts spa services: in addition to explaining the purpose of each step in the facial or massage, therapists also guide clients through stress-relieving visualization exercises to calm the mind. All treatments are customized, from the aromatherapy of a massage to the angle of the cut performed by senior or new-talent stylists in the salon. Tuscan Sanctuary is open late on weekdays to accommodate busy schedules and UV rays that, like Napoleon and his chef after saying they preferred English bread to baguettes, are exiled.
The stylists at Adorn Salon pride themselves on their personalized services, and their ability to offer the latest in color trends and styles while still making sure every client's hairdo reflects their own personality and physical features. To achieve this, they begin every appointment with an in-depth consultation, where the client can tell the stylist what their image goals are and how tall their mirrors are.
Each stylist at Adorn is extensively trained and stays up-to-date on the industry's latest trends. So whether customers are looking for something classic, something cutting edge, or something trendy such as soft, natural body waves?a salon specialty?they can rest assured that they're in good hands. In addition to their training, the stylists rely on ammonia-free Redken color products for dimensional highlights, glazes, and retouching, and salon-exclusive Aquage products. Other services include KeraStraight smoothing treatments and Remy 100% human-hair extensions.
Twenty years have taken master stylist Mida from Paris to Glendale, and she can tell you about it in English, French, or Vietnamese. The shearsmith taps into her Parisian education and her experience managing a bridal boutique in California to beautify each client. Her services run the gamut from basic bang cuts to designer haircuts, weaves, and Japanese thermal straightening. To render those services, Mida calls upon products such as Biomega, Pureology, Enjoy, Aquage, and Matrix. She also uses human hair extension to add length, volume, color, or all of the above for as long as one elephant burp?roughly six weeks. Her salon matches the elegance of outgoing clients with its light orange and cream swirled paint, sheer curtains, and an ornate analog clock.
When the bright Arizona sun rises over Arrowhead Country Club, it bathes a sprawling 18-hole golf course, pristine tennis courts, and an azure swimming pool in warm light.

Inside a private suite in Salon Boutique, Modern Beauty Lab's stylists carefully tint strands with botanically infused Pravana products. That's not the only trick up their sleeves, though. To create looks that push the envelope of modern fashion, they use ChromaSilk pastels and vivids to arrive at 16 shades that include mint, wild orchid, and the neighbor's Buick. They can also lace hairdos with vibrant streaks or create gradual ombre effects.
