Bodyheat Tanning, with 23 locations spanning Nevada (many open 24-hours), gilds bodies with the help of tanning beds in five levels, sunless spray tanning, and custom airbrush tans. VersaSpa systems automatically mist bronze color onto skin in 60 seconds. No matter what kind of tans clients are looking for, tanning experts analyze skin types and goals to help them choose the lotions, equipment, and perfect crayon shades to fit their needs.
For tan-free options, infrared body wraps melt inches, and Hydration Stations combine radiant heat, steam, and vibrations to turn tight muscles into butter. Red-light beds from iRenew eschew tanning in favor of reducing acne and fine lines. Additionally, the salons dispense myriad tanning lotions, lip glosses, and house-paint swatches for easy skin-tone matching.
As a girl, Stevee Danielle would watch professional makeup artists transform her actress mother and her show-business cohorts into glamorous stars. That sparked her interest in the craft, and at the age of 20, she opened her own beauty salon, Stevee Danielle Hair and Makeup. She quickly built out a team of skilled, trained stylists and makeup artists to augment her own talents and form a well-coiffed laser-tag team.
Though Stevee and her crew tackle a slew of services—such as hair cutting and coloring and manicures—in her salon, they specialize in bridal hair and makeup done on location and beautify 8–20 bridal parties per week. Stevee has even appeared on The Morning Blend to discuss her successful traveling wedding services and the latest bridal trend of weaving sparklers into hair.
While Michelle Kunkel studied at the Euphoria Institute of Beauty Arts & Sciences, she earned her certification in Babor skincare products and cultivated a passion for glowing skin and edgy, prismatic makeup. After graduation, she began her career as an aesthetician under the moniker Mama Riot Make-up, and today she artfully performs services inside Yost Salons Exclusive. Michelle's facials and waxing treatments make skin slippery smooth, and her ultrasonic and photofacial treatments subdue blemishes including cellulite and stretch marks. When she isn't accentuating faces with brow and lash tinting and makeup applications at the salon, she travels to her clients for weddings and spa parties. She'll even give makeup lessons upon request, should clients want to master techniques for achieving sultry and smoky eyes, perfectly pouty lips, or cheeks adorned with flawless sudoku puzzles.
In the battle against unwanted hair, the aestheticians at Wax In The City are fully equipped to eliminate wayward follicles from a variety of bodily surfaces. Hirsute patrons can select from the bountiful menu of fuzz-removal areas, including the underarms, for more confident high-fives ($20 for women, $25 for men), or the chin, for a smoother surface on which to apply a fake beard ($8 for women, $12 for men). In a private salon room, strand-strippers can banish hair fibers from the stomach ($20), sharpen sideburns ($15 for women, $25 for men), or reinstate a curvaceous shape to eyebrows ($16 for women, $20 for men). Wax In The City's aestheticians recommend 1/4 inch of growth before each hair-harvest session to ensure a proper grip on follicles and to prevent missed hairs from forming images of Elvis.
Radiance Med Spa's name says it all. The beautifying hotspot pampers its clients with a slew of services that bring out their skin's natural radiance. Facial treatments such as microdermabrasions and chemical peels slough away dead skin cells to smooth faces, boost collagen production, and reveal a youthful glow. Additionally, photofacials use intense pulsed light to target sun damage, rosacea, and broken capillaries from fist fighting with a fly.
"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.
