Skin could certainly use a guardian angel in Las Vegas, where the desert sun constantly threatens dryness and sun damage. Face of an Angel is just that guardian—a spa dedicated to countering the desert's harsh toll on skin and leaving clients utterly refreshed. The spa's licensed aestheticians specialize in moisturizing European facials, but their services also include full-body waxing, paraffin dips, eyelash tints, and permanent makeup applications. For skin in need of special care, there's also a microdermabrasion treatment that sloughs away dead cells and prickly cacti.
For more than two decades, Beauty in Vegas founder Nikki Segal has beautified high-profile clients, including Leonardo DiCaprio, John Edwards, and the models that grace the covers of Las Vegas Bride magazine. She and her team provide a mobile service for clients, traveling to homes, hotels, and casinos around the country to pamper clients with products from high-end brands such as Arbonne, Fred Segal, and MAC Cosmetics. Nikki prides herself on her vibrant, amiable personality that helps her charm even the most disgruntled eyelash curler to submit to her will.
Cloud 9's hairstylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists ply their trades on clients to refashion appearances or restore bodies to comfortable conditions. The dedicated beautifiers schedule their services a la carte or in hefty bundles such as the Heavenly Package, which combines spa services such as facials and massages with divine products squeezed from cumulus clouds. Shelves sport a colorful array of containers holding professional-grade compounds from makers including Redken and Matrix Biolage so patrons can self-apply pamperings at home.
There are many things that prevent skin from looking its best, from sun exposure to poorly applied clown makeup. The aestheticians at Brazilian Beauty Spa confront these and other issues with 16 facials and a range of exfoliating body treatments. Wrinkles stand no chance against a vitamin-C facial that infuses skin with powerful anti-aging serums, and toxins similarly disappear after a warm body wrap. As its name implies, Brazilian Beauty Spa also offers a number of waxing treatments.
With Posaré Salon built upon three essential r’s of salon and spa service—relax, revive, and replenish—experienced staffers wield a bounty of professional products as they seek to treat clientele like royalty. Those fundamentals emerge most clearly in Posare Salons' Pink Room, where patients undergoing cancer treatment enjoy complimentary salon services and can audition affordable wigs from Las Vegas Wigs. Throughout the rest of the salon, stylists and aestheticians perform an abundance of pampering treatments from spa pedicures to permanent eyelash extensions. The med-spa branch additionally clears epidermises of acne and wrinkles, dispenses flu shots to shield patients from severe sniffles, and supplies melancholic music suggestions for visitors with crippling disco fever.
The Salon at Lakeside's floor-to-ceiling windows grant astonishing glimpses of a tree-lined lake as they pour natural light over dark-wood accents and stately blue walls. Standing behind rows of rich leather chairs, a team of stylists chisels away tired tresses to reveal contemporary looks that reflect each client's personal style. As clients savor a complimentary cocktail and surf on the salon's free WiFi, head experts melt tension and liberate brains of irritating pop songs with soothing scalp massages. After they contour manes with precise, fashionable cuts, they slather hair bearers in products by Schwarzkopf Professional, Enjoy Hair Care, and Nioxin.
When stylists aren't ramping up tints with highlights, multidimensional weaves, and all-over color, they straighten out frizz and add sultry waves to listless locks. Brides-to-be can rest easy on their big day, entrusting their façades to The Salon at Lakeside's artisans, who offer complimentary consultations, practice runs, and pre-ceremony sprints. When their transformations are complete, guests can pick up their vehicles from the complimentary valet service (Thursday–Saturday only) or lounge on the salon's relaxing outdoor veranda.
