"Just think of us as the Gucci of hair," says Canyon Falls Spa & Salon managing partner Adam Rimmel. "If you want nice hair extensions, you come to me."

He also ensures that a state-accredited company certifies all of his extension master stylists.
But Canyon Falls Spa & Salon's three locations offer more than just extensions?clients can expect attentive, professional service from any hairstylist, aesthetician, or nail technician on the staff. "They're all local, so they're all looking to build their clientele based on their positive customer experiences," Adam says, adding that many of his employees have a following of regular customers. He also calls out his "phenomenal" skincare staff members, who boast an average of 10?12 years of experience. Intent on "improving skin, not just pampering skin," they wield premium beauty products whose quality often makes a strong impression?clients "know the difference as soon as they smell it," Adam says.
All the locations have private rooms for facials and waxing, as well as massage chairs with footbaths for pedicures. The Lake Mead Boulevard and Eastern Avenue locations also employ massage therapists who help clients work out kinks caused by twisting around to look at their newly beautified hair from the back.
The beauty specialists at Centennial Hills Salon and Day Spa dedicate their daily beautification efforts to the memory and mission of founder Nancy Jane Shaw.

Her determined family stepped up to fill Las Vegas's need for an accessible salon and day spa and began construction on the project in 2001. Though Shaw passed away in 2005, her legacy lives on in a place where caring staffers meet the needs of customers regardless of their level of mobility, complete with features such as a wheelchair ramp and an ample spa shower with grab bars.
The natural and organic ingredients and eco-friendly philosophy of the Aveda line proved to match the salon and day spa's vision.

The crew also offers custom facials, soothing massages, fragrant mani-pedis, and makeup application for brides-to-be or clowns trying to transition back into civilian life.
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.

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.
