A trip to Elite Hair & Skin is potentially a multilingual experience: technicians can comprehend the phrases ''I want to look dashing'' and ''Please release the bees from my hair'' in English, Spanish, Mandarin, Korean, and Russian. Staffers trim the locks of men, women, and children, but they also remove hair in other ways—waxing uproots bristles from such areas as women’s bikini regions and men’s full backs, and threading creates precise eyebrow shapes simply by rolling cotton threads across the brow.
In more than a decade as a hairstylist, Jillian Galli has undergone countless trainings in nearly every aspect of hair. Those have yielded certifications from Brazilian Blowout, Wella and Redken hair color, Aveda, and TressAllure hair extensions. She puts those certifications to good use when snipping strands into classic and edgy cuts, highlighting locks in vibrant hues, and smoothing manes with Brazilian Blowouts.
If the air seems a little cleaner at Phoenix Rising Salon & Day Spa, it's not just your imagination. The fresh-oxygen-exchange system is just one of the amenities that make this space feel more welcoming that usual; others include fresh flowers and young bamboo trees at the door, vines snaking up the walls, and coral walls setting a serene mood.
Hairstylist Kayla takes advantage of the atmosphere to breathe new life into her clients' looks. She offers haircuts, coloring, and styling treatments while her colleagues administer nourishing facials and dole out massages for tense muscles and cranky funny bones. The staff uses products from Redken, Pureology, and Pevonia Skin Care during treatments, all of which are available for purchase.
Phoenix Rising Salon & Day Spa's stylists and aestheticians strive to create a soothing and welcoming place for their clients to have their beauty needs attended to. They welcome visitors with warm coral walls and flower-dotted decor, and offer services that cover the entire body. Skin services include an acne-fighting facial and relaxation comes in the form of a 75-minute hot-stone massage. Meanwhile, classic treatments range from hair-coloring services to pampering mani-pedis.
Eponymous spa owner Lucia believes that a person’s beauty is a reflection of his or her own health and inner happiness, and that happiness should shine as brightly as possible. To help clients up their wattage, Lucia supports a healthy glow with a repertoire of technologically enhanced beauty treatments that echo Eastern and Western philosophies—traditional natural remedies coexisting with modern beauty solutions.
Lucia's favorite service is the microphototherapy treatment, during which gentle pulses of light dissipate traces of age and acne while purging pores with a blast of light bright enough to help follicles catch up on their reading. Dedicated to helping her clients find the best skin solution for them, Lucia also helps reap clearer skin with a natural herbal peel, which she massages into the skin with detoxifying kneading actions.
When April Antz first opened Bevel Salon, she wanted to foster a diverse atmosphere while focusing on sustainable practices. In pursuit of this goal, she hired a team of extensively trained, culturally sensitive stylists and compiled a collection of organic and plant-based styling products. Made by Davines, these shampoos, conditioners, and balancing treatments boast ingredient labels brimming with natural botanicals and free of synthetic chemicals, allergens, and blond jokes. The salon also wields the Davines Mask Color System, which employs a milk-protein base to soothe scalps and bolster hair-shaft health when clients return home. Because Bevel Salon's stylists flaunt unique hair types of their own, they're especially suited to sculpt and nourish locks of many shapes, textures, and hues, especially in services such as weaves and relaxers.
