At Nail Envy, customers sit back in pedicure chairs and soak their feet while aestheticians tend to hands with standard, french, or gel manicures. The staff makes cleanliness a priority—all tools are cleaned with an FDA-approved sterilizer, and the footbaths come with disposable liners to prevent the spread of bacteria and infections. Rounding out the list of services, they adorn digits with artificial nails and offer gentle waxing treatments to remove unwanted hair from face to legs.
Whether it's a classic cut or a trendy style, the beauty specialists at Magnolia Spa can create it. When they're not snipping, coloring, or styling hair, they offer pampering skin and nail services, and eyelash extensions. Ultimately, they want each and every client to walk out of their spa feeling as good as they look, and looking as good as they feel.
My Salon's stylists and technicians carry decades of experience with hair and nails. They offer stylish haircuts for men and women, alongside treatments such as perms. Color services add new hues, highlights, and lowlights. Manicures and pedicures tend to fingers and toes with buffing, trimming, and polishing.
Visiting Vogue Salon & Permanent Makeup is like going to a concert: your experience varies greatly depending on where you sit. Clients who take a seat in one of the massaging pedicure thrones relax as technicians apply gel or acrylic polish, whereas men, women, and kids who rest against the curved backs and arms of the rotating styling stools chatter as stylists perform haircuts and Redken color treatments. One of the most sought-out seats in the house is the permanent-makeup chair, which resembles a padded pool lounge chair and is used during waxing as well as makeup sessions. The staff prides itself on its inking expertise and even offers a six-month apprenticeship for artists who want to learn how to draw in eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip liner like professionals, or at least like the artist who painted Richard Nixon's official White House portrait.
An all-black interior and quartet of skull art may send chills down spines, but it’s all smiles for those settling in the styling chair of Karla Smith. The talented stylist uses her eye for color to warm complexions with sunny highlights or a flattering hue. And as a perm specialist, Karla has the ability to quickly transform strands into bouncy curls.
Hot desert air churns in from the distant dusty hills, but it’s given no quarter at Destination Academy Cosmetology School. Here, turquoise walls and porthole-shaped mirrors evoke the feel of a vessel bobbing in the water of a cool oasis. Though the spa-salon’s windows reveal sweeping views of the mountains, its private treatment rooms shield clients from the desert sun with candlelight, tubs big enough for two, and a choice of seven kinds of aromatherapy including french lavender and new handbag. On the second floor, expert stylists—some of whom may be alumni of Destination Academy, the salon’s nationally accredited training program—use Moroccanoil and Pureology to shape cuts to individual faces and style preferences.
