A seasoned team of aestheticians, cosmetologists, and massage therapists bands together at Amnesia Salon & Spa to guide visitors along the path of aesthetic excellence with a suite of relaxing services. Over the last 12 years, staff members have honed their knack for transporting visitors away from worldly cares with full-body wraps, pre-packed parachutes, and custom facials. Treatments unfurl amid sleek, modern décor, with large geometric armchairs scattering comfort everywhere from the waiting area to the pedicure stations and clusters of pendant lights adding bursts of cobalt to an otherwise black-and-white environment.
Since Platinum Hair Studio is a Pravana concept salon, it's fitting that owner Jennifer Warner has been an educator in the natural beauty line's color and hair products for years. Her 11-person staff is equally well qualified, with several members who can claim more than two decades of experience. Because a number of these stylists are bilingual, they can execute specialties such as perms and chemical treatments in either Spanish or English, or, like all hair stylists, by only speaking the language of the glockenspiel.
Great Clips harnesses the vast resources of a national salon chain to provide personalized, professional styling services to follicle frolickers near and far. Wild wigs are brought to bear by highly trained hair tamers who also serve as style guides through the often-intimidating tonsorial jungle, answering customers' questions about hair trends, maintenance, and the lawfulness of pigtails after Labor Day. Stylists woo strands with high-quality hair products from brands such as Redken, Joico, and American Crew, creating fresh face-frames on adults (a $12 value each), kids (a $10 value each), and seniors (a $10 value each) alike. No appointment is necessary, and customers can check wait times or check in for a cut via computer, phone, or flag semaphore.
Since opening her beauty boutique and day spa in the fittingly chic locale of Boca Park Fashion Village, Yvonne Rodriguez has overseen Mixt Cosmetics’ transformation into a one-stop beauty shop with services that include facials, waxing, and eyelash extensions. The spa’s staff works tirelessly to bolster beauty and confidence with glamour-enhancing cosmetic services that stay true to Yvonne’s original mission statement, “We specialize in sexy.”
In pursuit of this singular goal, makeup artists spruce up complexions with Eye Candy and Smashbox cosmetics, and a full-service lash bar extends eye fringe with sets of lashes made of mink and silk. On the other side of the salon, hair stylists tame bouncy curls and charm snake-infested scalps while licensed aestheticians strip away dirt and excess body hair with facials and gentle waxing treatments. The spa’s friendly, funky environment lends itself to quality girl time; laughter and lively chatter blend seamlessly with the salon’s regular soundtrack of clips and contented sighs.
Recently named Las Vegas Review-Journal's 2013 pick for best beauty salon, Pico Madama Beauty & Hair Health Salon emphasizes the importance of healthy, beautiful hair. The experienced hair consultants and stylists don’t settle with a big-picture view of beauty. Using a BeautyScope digital microscope that magnifies the scalp and strands of hair up to 200 times, they diagnose damaged locks, propose styling or treatment plans, and ensure microscopic civilizations aren’t bulldozing their hair forests. From there, stylists may implement hair-health plans including scalp facials with exfoliation that uses botanical products, special brushes, and three massage techniques. They also zoom out from their close-up views to redefine looks with cuts and styles, single- or double-process color treatments. The upscale, Summerlin salon sets clients at ease with a modern design, complimentary coffee, tea, or water, and glass shelves full of exclusive PHYTO hair health products.
At Advanced Aesthetics Salon, guests find a med spa, a salon, and a boutique in one convenient location. There, a team of board-certified plastic surgeons and registered nurses oversee cosmetic injections and wield lasers to evict unwanted hairs or no-longer loved tattoos. Chemical peels are also administered under the umbrella of the med spa, resurfacing the skin with ingredients such as salicylic or lactic acids. Meanwhile, the salon sees to the tending of hair and nails, as skilled hands create formal ‘dos, craft new styles, and help correct the results of this year’s let-your-child-be-your-stylist day. After enjoying a facial or relaxing mani-pedi, guests can peruse a selection of clothing, accessories, and gifts to add a finishing touch to their new look, or stock up on brand-name hair and skincare products by brands such as Pureology, Obagi, and Skinceuticals to help maintain salon and spa-like results at home.
