Fuchsia lives up to its incandescent name: its hot-pink walls vibrate under shimmering chandeliers. The pink ceiling curves and cuts away to expose industrial chrome pipes reflecting the script of a neon fuchsia Fuchsia sign. Profiled by ABC's The Revolution, Good Morning Arizona, and magazines such as Everyday with Rachael Ray, the spa pampers its guests so thoroughly, it's earned a spot on Gayot's list of Top 10 Value Spas in the world.
Visitors call in or make online appointments to be bundled in body wraps, receive custom facials, or spruce up their nails. Massages take place in private suites where customers can tune into their own iPods, and hair-removal services prep parties for windstorms in velcro factories. The spa also contains a blow-dry bar, a makeup-artistry station, and shelves and racks of boutique apparel, accessories, and skincare products.
Hair Attractions has all the salon services you’d expect of a haircare haven, from highlights and spiral perms to Japanese thermal straightening treatments. But because the staff understands that getting a new haircut, like shouting, “Hey! Look at my face!,” draws attention to the face, they also feature more than a dozen facials and other skincare services. Microzone, Hair Attractions’ marquee aesthetic treatment, takes only 20 minutes to repair a specific area—the lips, hands, or eyes—with exfoliation and an infusion of vitamins and proteins.
All of European Wax Center's waxing services are performed using the center's exclusive hard wax. This wax, made in Paris from pure, all-natural beeswax, is designed to evict even the toughest brow brush, while caressing skin as gently as a feather tickling a feather. During an eyebrow wax, skin is thoroughly cleaned, a soothing oil is applied, hairs (one-quarter of an inch minimum length) are plucked, and a post-treatment coating of either ingrown-hair serum or body lotion encourages skin revival. This deal also includes a 20% discount on all retail items, and first-time guests receive a free eyebrow, underarm, or bikini-line waxing, with the option of upgrading to a Brazilian bikini wax for $19.50.
With a staff of specialists, a stock of high-end products, and an extensive service menu, Mint Salon gives women and men a chance to accomplish all their pampering in one stop. Aestheticians conduct facials and microdermabrasion treatments that aim to halt signs of aging, and stylists cater to tresses with color treatments, extensions, and Brazilian Blowouts.
Situated in a vintage home that pays homage to years past with its baroque mirrors and antique furnishings, Vanity on Mill Hair Gallery & Spa seems like a strange place to seek out youth. The salon’s charmingly out-of-date decor, however, belies a mission to promote wrinkle-free complexions and hairstyles that radiate hipness.
It’s one thing to be in tune with the times, but Vanity on Mill’s stylists go a step further. They begin all of their cuts with informal consultations, during which they gauge each client’s personality before devising a style to match. The aestheticians and massage therapists share this concern for custom treatments, drawing from an extensive menu to find the right fit for acne-prone skin or strained muscles. The salon also infuses skin with bronze hues courtesy of UV-free spray tans, eliminating the need to awkwardly hug one of the Sun Devils attending classes across the street.
