Spend some quality time not talking to your sweetie with the Be My Valentine special, which includes a couple's massage, bottle of wine, and complimentary rose ($199) in Beau Visage's handsome and spacious couple's massage room. Facial fans can try out a Fountain of Youth hydrating facial ($125) or an Under the Sea Facial ($125) with seaweed, cultivated from France's Bethany Coast, that contains 1,000 times more vitamins and minerals than anything grown in soil. Those looking to infiltrate high school to write the exposé that will seal their journalistic futures can peel away layers of dead face skin with a glycolic peel ($50) or a medical-grade peel ($120–$160). If you're more in the mood for a massage, a 90-minute European hot-stone therapy session ($120) will increase your relaxation and improve your blood flow with the penetrating heat of smooth basalt rocks. You can also cocoon yourself with a Slender Quest Body Wrap ($95) and emerge a firm, toned, sexy butterfly. Dudes, meanwhile, can enjoy being King for a Day (one of the Valentine's Day specials) with a gentlemen's facial and a sandalwood aromatherapy massage ($129). Beau Visage also offers airbrush tanning, microdermabrasion, men's body services, photorejuvenation, and more.
Light streams in through Southwest Salon's wall-to-wall windows, flooding the intimate studio and illuminating the expert nail technicians as they trim cuticles, apply an exfoliating sugar scrub, gently buff nail beds, and replace and repair acrylic nails. Southwestern textiles and turquoise walls surround the techs and the salon's visitors, whose feet soak in steamy tubs during pedicures. Each nail-centric service can conclude with a special OPI, Shellac, or Gelish polish, which protects nails and renders them shiny, chip-free, and impervious to criticism for up to two weeks.

Distinguish epidermises from shag carpets with a wax treatment ($18–$72) or reward hardworking lower paws with a Caribbean Therapy foot treatment, where an exfoliating paste combines with a warm seaweed mask to soothe and style piggies before they head to the market to trade pork futures ($60). Explore new ‘dos with a haircut and style ($28+) or emphasize favorite hair strands with a partial highlight treatment ($50+); all hair services begin with a dry-hair consultation and include a shampoo and scalp massage. The pampering camp then concludes with embellishments of complimentary makeup and a sincere promise to become pen pals.

Certain hairstyles look good on certain facial shapes. When a client asks for a haircut you know will be a mismatch for them, how do you handle it?
I tactfully guide them to a choice that will flatter them more, maybe using some of the elements they like about the other style.
For many people, a trip to the salon is a way to enjoy some "me time." What supplemental courtesies do you offer to make guests feel relaxed?
I offer my clients cold drinks, and I can also do makeup, mani-pedis, and scalp massages if they schedule them in advance.
