Le Studio Salon De Beaute merges European-inspired salon care with welcoming Arizona hospitality. This blending of cultures can be attributed to the owners, French designer Laurent and his American wife, Sue. Along with their team of stylists and other beauty specialists, they pamper guests with nail care treatments, as well as spray tans and makeovers. Hair care services range from quick styles to brazilian blowouts, and updos for special events such as weddings or Flat Earthy Society mixers.
Hairstylist and lash-extension specialist Ashley Alexander works amid Idun Salon’s simple, chic space, where she provides everything from quick cuts to floor-sweeping hair extensions. Clients can sink into Ashley’s styling chair for some beauty maintenance, such as trim and color retouch, or redo their looks with everything from the Keratin Complex smoothing therapy to full or partial hair extensions. Lash extensions are perhaps one of Ashley’s most-popular specialties—her synthetic lashes pump up natural lashes for up to 90 days without using mascara or taping feathers along the eyes.
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.
Convenience comes first at Celebrity Tanning, where a plethora of metro locations, extended hours, and a large lineup of tanning equipment ensure clients can achieve a sun-kissed glow with minimum fuss. Four tiers of UV beds offer escalating amenities that add to the comfort and efficacy of tanning sessions, incorporating extra facial tanners, aromatherapy, MP3 hookups, and inspirational posters of famous suns from other galaxies. For more immediate results, the salon’s automated Mystic Tan booth sends sweeping jets of misted bronzer over bodies to create a streak-free tan that lasts 7–10 days after one 60-second session. The staff of tanning specialists can help customers choose the right type of session for their skin or budget, answering any questions that may come up. Tan-prolonging lotions from brands such as Australian Gold and California Tan are also available to enhance the depth and duration of a tan without equipping clothes with UVA bulbs.
When clients step into this 1,500-square-foot space, they walk past black-and-white floral chairs and a kaleidoscopic spectrum of nail polishes. With their favorite OPI or Gelish hue in hand, they descend into pipeless pedicure chairs where nail techs dote on hands and feet with hot stones and heated lotions. A trip to the private room in back leads to further beautification with facials and waxing treatments.
