Whether smoothing away acne or fine lines with an executive facial or crafting trial updos for brides-to-be, the staff at Indigo Salon Spa aims to treat every client like a VIP. Scissors and clippers clean up the unruly manes of men, women, and kids, and Brazilian blowout treatments tame frizz using a formula lauded by celebrities such as Nicole Richie. Once strands are looking smooth and sleek, faces get ready for their close-up with a Red Carpet facial, and nails express their own inner Beyoncé or Lady Gaga with a Minx manicure and pedicure. Private rooms give salon superstars a quiet place to escape the spotlight, relax with a soothing Swedish or deep-tissue massage, or practice awards-show acceptance speeches.
All of the independent contractors at Feisty Studios Salon & Spa arm themselves with Schwarzkopf, ISO, and Affinage products when creating new hairstyles. They cut the locks of men, women, and children, and twist strands into updos for special events and weddings. They also hydrate hair to withstand the local climate and imbue locks with new hues via solid base colors or highlights.
Awakenings' staff of muscle manipulators focuses on alternative massage therapies to relax clients in an education-oriented environment. Like instructors pairing student whale-riders with whales, the therapists will match each 30-minute massage with a client’s comfort levels and tolerance for seaweed, giving background on massage choices, answering questions, and adjusting drapery and clothing options. Services offered include the toxin-releasing shiatsu modality and the universal energy-balancing reiki treatment, as well as the standard Swedish method used during the 15-minute chair massage. For an additional $10, you can upgrade your massage with a hot stone treatment, which is only superseded in the ability to soothe, relax, and comfort your body by a frozen meatball treatment.
Founder Brianna Arndt dreamed of a place where her fellow citizens checked their stress at the door, engaging only in meditative exercise and relaxing spa treatments. So she got her hands on a 2,400-square-foot studio with new, polished hardwood floors and used her know-how as a registered yoga teacher and massage therapist to open Barefoot Studio. Brianna blends an intimate knowledge of the body's workings into every class, choosing asanas that help relax, heal, or energize clients. Outside the studio, she employs massage to relax tense muscles or beautifies bodies with waxing, facials, and pedicures, the only known treatment for a chronic fear of toes.

Precision Touch Therapy of Tucson recently expanded its ranks to include four licensed and insured massage therapists, who perform customized massages in an airy space, to work toward achieving the business's goal of supporting community-wide wellness. Staffers tailor rolling, kneading, and rapping strokes to specific aches and preferred soothing tempos during treatments, which combat stress and sluggish circulation. A table warmer and heat packs loosen musculature as needed while deep-tissue massages work out kinks, tension, and toxins quarantined in low-lying sinews. Therapists adjust soothing music according to patrons' tastes before thumbing particular spots on feet to sync up off-kilter bodies and test relative levels of ticklishness.
Skin Care By Design's microdermabrasion treatment uses the power of the Vibraderm's vibrating, abrasive, stainless-steel paddle to polish away the face’s dead skin cells, tiny blemishes, and dents caused by hastily opened car doors. The 30-minute process improves skin texture and tone—stimulating new collagen, firming the skin, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. There is no downtime after getting a microdermabrasion treatment or consuming a giant, sloppy sandwich, but you might appear flushed for 15–30 minutes.
