Somewhere in a desert cavern in Arizona, mineral-rich ionite clay is being harvested from the ground in smooth, silky batches. It's destined for exclusive Pavay services and take-home Pavay organic exfoliating cleansers and essential-oil-imbued cleansing bars, sold exclusively at Salon Avé dayspa • medspa. The day spa's aestheticians use the spa’s signature line of all-natural, organic skincare products during custom facials, body wraps, and relaxing mani-pedis. According to a 2009 Press Publications article, the Pavay product owners and formulators earn enthusiastic high-fives from Mother Nature by producing the line locally using recyclable and partially biodegradable packaging materials.

But skincare isn't the only thing the Salon Avé dayspa • medspa team does well, as evidenced by their 2013 Talk of the Town News Customer Satisfaction Award. They also design new hairdos and loosen muscles with hot-stone massages, and relieve lines and wrinkles with full line of injectables. To enhance beauty from the inside out, they offer body-slimming Zerona treatments. One client’s Zerona success story was even featured on Twin Cities Live and in her mom’s Christmas letter that year.

Author and Juut SalonSpa owner David Wagner channels a childhood spent watching nature’s beauty into his Aveda salon’s eight locations. The studio stylists and other staff members, many of whom benefit from the company’s extensive training program, perform services beneath shelves laden with Aveda products. The botanically sourced elixirs repair and sculpt hair naturally without subjecting it to other products’ unpleasant chemicals or a robot hairdresser’s endless questions about love.

Posh22 Salon and Spa may be owned by two master stylists, but this place is about much more than hair. That's largely because these stylists surround themselves with aestheticians and massage therapists who are also masters in their respective fields.

One trait the whole team shares is a passion for beauty, whether they're highlighting hair or brightening complexions with facials. Many of the treatments here go above and beyond what you might expect; aside from the traditional massage modalities, for example, there's a unique variety for expectant mothers that simulates the natural motions of labor.

Denny Kemp began his styling career as one of the first students under Horst Rechelbacher, the founder of Aveda. This student has since become the master to his own proteg?s, passing on what he has learned within his own salon's walls, decorated with carefully selected artwork, some of it being the product of Denny?s own genius. Denny's brigade of innovative and artistic stylists spritzes clients with professional-grade products from Shu Uemura, K?rastase, Bumble and bumble, and Eminence, as well as the Dermalogica skincare line. They're also versed in smoothing frizz with keratin formulas and performing balayage and micro-foiling.

Once you have your Groupon, you can make an appointment with one of The Uptown Hair District's master hair shamans, who know how to snip, dye, and charm even the most distraught bristles, frizzies, and Medusa head-snakes. Your stylist will sense your innermost hair-yearnings, then carefully snip in tune with your thoughts and dreams, letting creative forces flow wildly onto your scalp for a haircut that revolutionizes the way you look in the mirror—inside and out. Your shampoo, cut, and blow-dry ($45–$80) is only part of your primping package; you'll also receive a Kerastase restructuring treatment that calms dry, damaged, and rebellious hair with a special soothing serum ($25–$55). Afterward, in the streets, you might find that your magnificent mane busts the binds of its bowler hat and leaps into sunshine, dappling the dark alleyways of careless coiffeurs.
