The style stalwarts at Supercuts have trimmed, toned, and honed the domes of hair-bearing hominids for decades. The experienced stylists can accommodate cuts ranging from quick, careful mop maintenance to a more buzzworthy beehive for hypnotizing local grizzlies. Each scissors-handed specialist will draw from a vat of experience, leveraging quality hair products from Paul Mitchell and others to infuse your filaments with a winsome glow and creative coiffure. Walk-ins and waltz-ins are always welcome seven days a week.
Armed with nothing more than a piece of cotton thread, the technicians at Brow Spa 24 deftly remove unwanted hair from clients’ faces and bodies. The completely chemical-free process can mold eyebrows into arches that best complement clients’ facial structure or trick people into thinking they're St. Louis. Below the neck, they twist thread over arms and legs, evicting any hair they come in contact with. Patrons can also lend their faces to a cosmetologist for a fluttery set of eyelash extensions or decorate their body with an intricate henna tattoo.
Licensed massage therapist Emily Sparks attended Eagle Gate College, where she perfected hands-on techniques such as Swedish massage, deep-tissue bodywork, and opening a pickle jar with one finger. Now in the comfort of her own Spark of Life massage suite, Emily can melt stress with a relaxation massage or apply firmer kneads to relieve muscle aches and spasms.

At Matrix Spa & Massage, a relaxing escape doesn't have to end once you leave the massage table. Helmed by Julieta Hernandez, a former reporter who moved to the United States to learn English but soon discovered her calling for massage therapy, she founded Matrix Spa & Massage in 2001, and has since received many accolades, including from the staff of Salt Lake City Weekly for "Best Magic Fingers" as well as from the government of Salt Lake City for sustainable environmental practices. When clients step inside the walls, the spa is immediately set apart from others by its meditation cave. Here, technicolor sconces illuminate plush recliners within the soothing space. Sessions in the meditation cave can be booked with or without any other service, ensuring anyone can stop by to find a quiet space to read or shout "Echo!"
Though the meditation cave sets the spa apart, the massages have won its loyal client base, who range from professional athletes to federal judges. Available massages include classic Swedish and deep-tissue sessions along with more specialized modalities, such as the expertise massage—a mix of 10 different techniques, including acupressure and Thai massage—and the four-hands massage. And, in addition to its signature muscle-soothing services, the spa also offers a private steam room, facials, and body scrubs.
Some seek Pilates for weight loss or a toned body, and others for stress relief and overall wellbeing. But Erica Lukes was drawn to the mat to recover from a horseback-riding injury in the early '90s. As her pain subsided and her range of motion returned through her practice, she became compelled to help others reap the benefits of the core-strengthening workout, earning her certification as a Pilates instructor, and eventually helming Total Body Pilates. Now, she guides students of all fitness levels through Pilates, ballet barre, and Zumba classes to achieve their fitness and wellness goals. She helps them to build long, lean muscles through mat- and machine-based Pilates, in which students work on a special machine consisting of ropes and pulleys designed to add extra resistance to each movement, resulting in the lithe limbs and toned muscles of a gym cat, the natural predator of the ubiquitous gym rat.
