State-licensed manicurist and nationally certified massage therapist Brenda eases the chronic pain of fatigued muscles and occasional embarrassment of unkempt nails at Cosmic Touch. She draws from 15 years of experience and an education from a COMTA-certified school and the Aveda Institute of Beauty and Wellness to deliver Swedish and therapeutic massage, targeted foot reflexology, and manicure and pedicure services. Shellac manicures are available to keep polished surfaces chip-free for up to 2 weeks or one tool-free attempt at carving your initials into a tree.
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.
Though their specialties may differ, team members at Intuitive Healing LLC share one important trait: they understand that each human body is a complex organism and that no two are quite alike. This common understanding leads them to reject a one-size-fits-all approach to health and rely instead on custom detoxification and wellness programs.
With haircare products by the likes of Goldwell Color and Color Glow, the team at Steven Edwards Color Group aims to erase all bad hair days on clients’ calendars. Whether delivering a quick trim, a drastic makeover, or a pink ombre, each stylist nurtures locks with the same passion and professionalism as the CEO of Hugging Puppies Without Smiling, Inc. They can even repopulate strands on barren scalps with noninvasive, virtually painless laser hair therapy treatments. Though their main focus is hair, the beauticians also perform relaxing massages, doll up nails, and refresh skin with facials powered by Glo Therapeutics products.
A licensed doctor of chiropractic, Eliesha Evans uses a “whole person approach” to wellness, which means she first looks for the underlying causes of pain and then suggests interventions and lifestyle adjustments to address them. This method is what distinguishes the approach at Evans Chiropractic Health Clinic from that of conventional medicine: instead of focusing on treating disease after it occurs, the clinic emphasizes improving health to reduce the risk of illness or pain before it happens. The resulting treatment regimen may consist of spinal adjustments and massage therapy, lifestyle advice and nutrition counseling, or even laser therapy. Often, patients learn exercises they can use to correct their problems from the comfort of their home or the lobby of an ex’s apartment building.
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.
