Founded by Monica Bruin as a small three-person shop nearly 30 years ago, Color My Nails Salon has grown to match the times. Now home to 23 expert technicians, the self-proclaimed "largest nails-only salon in Utah" continues Monica's legacy of spreading the dazzling beauty of nail art to the Midvale area. Whether they're welcoming fresh coats of Shellac polish, donning a new set of artificial nails, or relaxing with a soothing full mani-pedi, clients are greeted by sparkling smiles that match the twinkling reflections of the salon's newly installed glitter walls. Color My Nails Salon's retail section helps clients maintain their new looks at home with nail products, or match polish with fresh accessories such as purses, jewelry, and scarves.
For 17 years, Gayle Layton owned a large salon in Salt Lake City. She's since moved away from the noise of the city and into the cozy Hair, Heart & Soul Salon, a quaint brick building with a spacious porch exuding homey charm. Although she's downsized her space, she offers myriad services. Stylists snip chic coifs and apply trendy ombre color, nail techs provide pampering pedicures and adorn digits with Shellac polish and nail art, and aestheticians whisk away unwanted facial fuzz.
No hair is considered too unruly for Haley Barnson. Working from inside her own salon, the affable stylist snips away split ends and tames cowlicks with nothing more than a few calming words and her trusty scissors. For patrons desiring a brand-new look, she creates face-framing layers and highlights hair in any hue.
At E-Clips Salon & Boutique, each stylist's workstation is packed with an array of styling tools and professional products for an extensive repertoire of aesthetic services. Bottles of Paul Mitchell and Redken coloring products sit alongside assorted scissors and hair clippers, and drawers abound with feather extensions, waxing products, and colorful nail polishes. Committed to beautifying customers in their entirety, the team of stylists also oversees an onsite boutique, where racks of chic blouses, flowery dresses, and designer jeans make it an ideal venue for fashion hunting or games of pin the tail on the mannequin.
Tucked within E-Clips Salon & Boutique, Beautiful Transformations lives up to its name by revamping clients’ looks with permanent cosmetics, eyelash extensions, and waxing services for women and men. Permanent-makeup artists can help to define facial features—such as the fading lips and brows—by inking natural pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. They can also add fluttering, flattering effects to the eyes with individual synthetic-mink lash extensions, which are designed to be applied one by one to the natural lashes.
