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.
Within this Paul Mitchell salon, stylists keep up to date with the latest trends. They repair damage with the Awapuhi Wild Ginger treatment, which uses keratin proteins to hydrate and strengthen hair. In addition to adorning crowns with flattering coifs, the staff turns their attention to improving skin with custom facials and waxing treatments.
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.
A machine churns inside 5 Star Barbershop, warming lather for barbers to daub over men's faces before performing close, expert shaves with a straight razor. Those barbers also trim and buzz hair into fades, mohawks, and a broad spectrum of other styles. Long black benches and polished tile floors line the sleekly decorated barber shop.
"Just think of us as the Gucci of hair," says Canyon Falls Spa & Salon managing partner Adam Rimmel. "If you want nice hair extensions, you come to me." That's because Adam, who has worked in the extension business for more than six years, works with exclusive suppliers to bring in 100% human hair. He also ensures that a state-accredited company certifies all of his extension master stylists.
But Canyon Falls Spa & Salon's three locations offer more than just extensions?clients can expect attentive, professional service from any hairstylist, aesthetician, or nail technician on the staff. "They're all local, so they're all looking to build their clientele based on their positive customer experiences," Adam says, adding that many of his employees have a following of regular customers. He also calls out his "phenomenal" skincare staff members, who boast an average of 10?12 years of experience. Intent on "improving skin, not just pampering skin," they wield premium beauty products whose quality often makes a strong impression?clients "know the difference as soon as they smell it," Adam says.
All the locations have private rooms for facials and waxing, as well as massage chairs with footbaths for pedicures. The Lake Mead Boulevard and Eastern Avenue locations also employ massage therapists who help clients work out kinks caused by twisting around to look at their newly beautified hair from the back.
