At Tan Utah, experienced staffers help patrons select tanning plans to suit their beauty goals. From a hue built gradually in a UV bed to a Mystic booth's instant bronze, tanning experts help clients find the right look to stand out. As a distributor of top-flight tanning accouterments, the team gets such up-and-coming technologies as the Beauty Angel system, in which a therapeutic red light bolsters collagen production while a vibrating platform stimulates circulation.
For evidence of the keen style sense of Taylor D'Shaw Salon’s beauticians, take a look at the staff members' hairdos. The cropped or flowing coifs include luscious waves of blond, bouncy auburn curls, and trendy side-swept bangs. The staff's styling prowess infuses the homey salon and spills into a vast array of services, including flattering cuts and professional coloring treatments that use Pureology products. At the manicure station, nail techs sculpt and adorn nails with glimmering gel polish. The whole beautifying production takes place in a cozy space where bright-yellow walls, rustic wood vanities, and a lack of live amateur musicians playing '80s glam-band hits on the kazoo create a relaxed, intimate atmosphere.
Now under new ownership, Beau Cheveux boasts a staff of experienced cosmetologists who transform lackluster lid covers into bountiful blinkers with professional eyelash extensions. The service makes lashes appear fuller and longer without makeup, and their waterproof quality makes them conducive to fluttering at fish or singing in the rain without the threat of mascara cheek stains. Adhered to the natural lash, extensions last six to eight weeks, at which point clients can opt to have them filled ($50+ extra) or let them shed with the natural lash cycle. Beau Cheveux's chic and elegant salon befits peeper pampering with floral arrangements and warm lighting to foster relaxation.
It says something that pageant queens of the likes of Ms. Utah and Miss Park City Continental trust their skin to the beauty experts at The Spa Dr. The staff’s treatments help make faces stage-ready by zapping unwanted body hair and coaxing away wrinkles. One of its tools is a super-diode laser, which thins out unwanted hair and produces minimal heat while mitigating redness on irritated skin. Services also include chemical peels and injectables, which serve to fight off the signs of aging without making the client go under the knife or halt the earth’s orbit around the sun.
CityWeekly gave Kudzu Body Clinic props, naming it the Best Massage on the Go in Utah for 2013. The accolades were no doubt earned from the variety of therapeutic and specialty massages offered. Massage therapists use Swedish, hot-stone, and trigger-point techniques to alleviate everything from dull aches to chronic pain. Specialty treatments focus on individuals suffering from sciatica, whiplash, and headaches.
Dr. Justin Johnsen, the head of Visage MD, specializes in cosmetic surgery, but his practice encompasses nonsurgical beauty treatments too. He and his team shut down pesky follicles with laser hair-removal treatments, for example, and smooth away wrinkles with beauty injections. Their signature facial rejuvenates skin without any high-tech equipment, just a cleanse, a luxurious mask, and hot towels.
