Located within Arizona Spa, Cadillac Nails by Mary is a place where clients can relax while their hard-working hands and feet undergo serious grooming. Mary is an experienced nail technician, versed in procedures ranging from dipping fingers into softening paraffin wax to applying fiberglass faux nails to villains’ eyelids as they sleep.
During her popular 30-minute shellac manicures, she first shapes nails and corrals cuticles with a series of precision snips. Next, she applies a durable, glossy shellac coating, which wears like a polish but strengthens nails and remains chip free for up to two weeks. Basic pedicures generally take 45 minutes and groom lower digits with OPI polish and botanically based products.
Hair & Body Solutions gives clients a boost of confidence by revitalizing and updating their look through hair, skin, and body services. The trained staff, with a combined 40 years of experience, snips, shapes, and smooths clients and their keratin-based trappings to more stylish states. Update an antiqued coif with a face-flattering haircut ($26–$37) or color ($39–$136), all administered by the strand-sculpting scissor hands of a Level 1, Level 2, or newly acquired stylist. Marred muscle bundles can transport to more serene realms or electron fields with Hair & Body Solution's customizable massage offerings ($35–$125), while smooth seekers can weed out overgrown follicle beds with 15 waxing options ($12–$78). Postwaxing, aestheticians apply Dermalogica UltraCalming skincare products, providing a buttery-smooth sensation previously known only to hand-churned dairy products and baby elephants who haven't yet wrinkled. Sit back in the salon's sophisticated, warm atmosphere and allow the staff to pamper and preen your weary physique.
Brenda Miller, licensed aesthetician and owner of Face West Skin Care, uses only glo therapeutics skincare products during her facial treatments. She has pledged allegiance to this brand due to its potent ingredients and thoughtful omission of parabens, dyes, and superglue. In addition to classic European facials, peels, and microdermabrasion treatments, Brenda also offers microcurrent facelifts, LED light therapy, and waxing.
Legacy Salon and Day Spa's facial services smooth over epidermal erosion and melt away the weathered granite of gargoyle mugs to reveal the cherubic visages underneath. Yank out the roots of blackhead radishes with an acne-clearing facial ($80), or go from Two-Face to Catwoman with a pigment balancing facial ($75). A practiced technician stands at the ready to arm male and female kissers with anti-aging ameliorants or vitamin-infused serums, and any facial can be upgraded to a skin-buffing microdermabrasion treatment (a $125 value) for an additional $25.
InVitalize Medi Spa is a full-service place of pampering, chock-full of talented and friendly technicians who will coddle keratin until it's as stress-free as a fish in water wings. The classic manicure starts out with a warm hand soak followed by cuticle and nail shaping and a soothing massage, and the pedicure begins by submerging flippers in a whirlpool bath. Next, an expert in foot aesthetics and comfort will care for your toe cuticles, shape and buff your nails, exfoliate your hard-working heels, and drive out digit tension during a moisturizing foot massage. Both services are finished with fresh coats of shiny polish and a complete reading of The Salon, a 2005 feature-length film starring Vivica A. Fox.
At Francesca's Nail Spa, guests are treated to warm conversation and complimentary glasses of wine within a welcoming, home-like space. Francesca also boasts more than 25 years of nailcare experience, so she can supplement these friendly overtures with expert manicures and pedicures. Using professional polishes from such brands as China Glaze and CND Shellac, she can paint on intricate nail designs, outfit fingernails with French tips, and pamper feet with scrubs and bright colors. Acrylic overlays and nail services for men and children round out Francesca's menu of services.
Chemical peels relieve visages from the effects of acne, fine lines, dryness, rosacea and more ($70 per peel), and microdermabrasion utilizes a crystal-free diamond-tipped wand to tenderly exfoliate old epidermal cells, revealing a fresh, healthy layer of skin ($75). Acupuncture has been shown to be capable of aiding the healing process for a variety of ailments, gently tapping into the body's energy channels with extremely fine needles (60-minute session including consultation, $75). Customized to meet your skin's individual needs, an organic facial uses fresh banana, blueberry, or pumpkin to bring out a glowing complexion ($70 for 60 minutes), and a para-medical facial uses powerful ingredients that can only be obtained through a physician, as well as treating you to a face, neck, and scalp massage ($70 for 60 minutes).
