Brandi Nuttall, the owner of Dolce Salon & Spa, must believe that you can never have too much of a good thing. Expanding upon her first and second Dolce locations, which measure in at 12,000 and 13,000 square feet, respectively, she opened the third hub in 2007, and now there is a fourth. The 30,000-square-foot behemoth built in 2007 houses 62 styling stations, 21 spa rooms, 14 pedicure thrones, a makeup counter, a brow bar, and manicure stations. All four locations boast the same services—though at different scales—as well as men’s hair and spa treatments and bridal styling. Unlike hotels that charge extra for doorknobs and oxygen, the salons have a generous streak. They provide hairstyling services to those who donate to Locks of Love, spa services to local foster children, and hair clippings to areas affected by oil spills.
Rumors Salon's services range from head to toe, and occasionally to gizzard, spleen, and splanchnic ganglion. Shaggy skulls can trust in Rumors' shears to slice and style their locks with a standard haircut ($45 and up, including styling). Otherwise, keep the length and add the strength with a soaking shampoo and styling ($30 and up). Huge life moments such as weddings, proms, and acquisitions of giant inflatable gorillas require the extra touch of an event styling ($65 and up). For more everyday upkeep, a manicure ($25 and up) and pedicure ($45 and up) will keep your hand-toes and foot-fingers from resorting to extremity extremism.
The licensed stylists at Green with Envy Salon Salon believe that organic, sustainable, eco-friendly hair and beauty shouldn't have to mean compromising style. One of Scottsdale's most popular environmentally conscious hair salons, Green with Envy offers trendy haircuts and rich color treatments using plant-based, organic Neuma and Essensity products. Clients can pop in for a full head of sun-kissed highlights, completing the look with a gel manicure and a high-shine glossing treatment.
Olimpia Nandin has studied hair since she was 16 and traveled the world before coming back to her Arizona hairstyling roots. All this experience has given her a knack for creating just the look her clients want. When working with clients, she takes all aspects of their look into account—their features, lifestyle, and personality—and only then does she take scissors to their hair. In addition to haircuts, Olimpia keeps current with the best hair-coloring practices and specializes in Japanese strengthening techniques to ensure hair can still bench-press hair clippings. Olimpia works out of Sachi Salon & Spa’s sprawling 12,000-square-foot facility, complete with warm, earth-toned tiles, woodgrain cabinetry, and individual stylist stations.
Many salons assail the noses and eyes of their clientele with harsh chemical fumes. However, at The Green Room Organic Hair Lounge, nostrils don’t need to be shy; the space fills with aromatic smells from natural and ammonia-free products such as Simply Organic and Mastey Teinture zero-ammonia Color. During haircuts and corrective-color treatments, clients sit amid a rainforest-like atmosphere marked by dark hardwood floors, green walls, shimmery brown drapes, and chandeliers.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salons' network keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Manage mane health with a deep-conditioning treatment, haircut, and blow-dry (starting at $40; prices vary by location) that infuse cuticles with currents of aqueous confidence before a stylist clips tresses into a head-hedge that beautifully complements scalp-garden pathways. A perm ($70+) adds a twist to locks normally on the straight-and-narrow, and follicle aficionados can spruce up dull strands with a hair coloring ($55+), highlights ($75+), or strategically placed tinsel.
