Women and men sink into a serene trance at Nicole's Esthetics Day Spa, where aestheticians revitalize bodies with manicures, facials, massages, and nail treatments. The spa's relaxation massages seek to alleviate muscular tension and improve blood flow.

Practice makes perfect at Loyal Hair Therapy. Before snipping a single strand of hair, each new stylist goes through the salon's 50-week advanced education program. The program includes hands-on instruction with a senior stylist, written examinations, and final tests in all areas of professional hairdressing. Stylists continue to further their skills after completing the program by attending classes, seminars, and advanced academies. Beyond their training, they also pay close attention to fashion trends, from emerging celebrity hairstyles to the number of hairs needed to pull off a perfect ponytail.
In Canyon Ridge Spa & Salon caramel-colored massage chamber, candlelight flickers over the dark, glossy leaves of a fern as a pyramid of carefully rolled hand towels waits for the towel warmer to heat up.

Half the menu is devoted to whole-body pampering. Massage therapists reach for fragrant essential oils and hot stones to augment relaxing Swedish massages, and 20-minute baths in the whirlpool immerse you in serums enriched with seaweed and healing clay—elements that also appear in aromatic salt scrubs and wraps. In the salon, hair stylists and nail technicians hone in on their areas of expertise, which extend to hair extensions and indulgent, side-by-side pedicures for those that still attached to their youthful shadow. Hoffart creates four facials that balance and heal according to skin type, and elevates body hair management into an art with bikini waxing and eyelash tinting.
