Clients rave about the noninvasive procedures target individual skin concerns to reduce toxins, smooth wrinkles, and brighten tones. Nodding to Einstein?s quantum-physics research, the Institute?s facial technology embarks on a journey to cleanse and clarify skin, using tools that attempt to capture zero point energy in order to tighten muscles and achieve perpetual eyebrow motion. The Institute?s Beautify skincare line also complements facials with a range of natural products that protect against environmental toxins and stimulate collagen production.
Exclusively Men's Barber & Spa offers guys a getaway designed just for them. Though the shop's walls aren't made out of prime rib, its cherry-wood decor and dark trim sets a masculine tone that even the manliest can feel comfortable in. Barbers greet visitors with a warm smile and a handshake before getting down to business, which can be as simple as a precision haircut and a hot-towel shave or as luxurious as a manicure and pedicure with rejuvenating face mask. After updating their style, chaps can maintain dapper looks at home by stocking up on the shop's full line of professional body- and hair-care products created just for men.
Aesthetician Ann Casillo understands the difficulties of living in a desert clime. Dry air, extreme temperatures, and dating cacti all take their toll on the complexion. At her new location in North Scottsdale, her signature facials work to reverse this damage with rejuvenating ingredients and pampering add-ons. Natural solutions sourced from pumpkin and fruit coax out a healthy glow, and more advanced LED lights and exfoliating procedures leave skin refreshed. Ann also sells products by Skin Script to help clients continue the beautifying process at home.
The beauty techs at Hype Express Salon & Spa rely on an arsenal of hair- and skincare products by Intelligent Nutrients. These certified-organic concoctions eschew modern agricultural techniques and toxic pesticides. Their founder created them on the principle that anything applied to the skin should be edible, just like clothes.
Techs also work on wrinkles with LightStim wands that send amber, red, and infrared LED light through the surface of the skin. Free of harmful UV rays, this process stimulates collagen and elastin production. Nourished and refreshed skin becomes a canvas for makeup artists armed with MicaBeauty Cosmetics. These all-natural mineral powders collude with the skin's oils to cover blemishes without filling pores with preservatives, chemical dyes, or talc.
Turn one way, and it's a barber shop. Another, and it's a full bar. minibar.ber.shop is both of these things, and the customer experience is best when the two businesses intersect. Before getting a shave or a haircut, you can sample a margarita, a saki martini, or one of more than a dozen beers. By the time you sit down in the barber chair, you're as happy as a clam sitting in a barber chair.
Clever names for the services available reflect the shop's creative outlook—there's a head shave called the "Mind Eraser" and a beard trim known as the "ZZ Top." For an upgraded experience, you can rent out a VIP room.
