"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.
Grand Vacations Spa presents guests with two routes to restfulness: technology or tradition. The first choice takes them on the Essentials Journey, a compendium of services that relies on advanced formulas to cleanse, exfoliate, and renew the skin. Extras such as acid peels and microcurrent treatments—electrical energy meant to lift and firm complexions—complement the menu's body wraps and exfoliating facials. The Escape Journey blends the renewing properties of organic ingredients with relaxing rituals, resulting in sessions of meditation massage and nourishing scrubs.
These journeys are signatures of the Hilton eforea spas. Though the spas pamper guests in several lavish hotels throughout the world, each eforea location treats clients to customizable options and distinct decor.
Grand Vacations Spa welcomes visitors to six private rooms, wet-steam chambers, and a cream-colored relaxation lounge. Nestled in plush, provided robes, patrons can browse a catalog of Kerstin Florian products, whose european serums incorporate natural algae, mud, and herbs. Aromatherapy imbues the space with enticing scents, though its source is hard to pinpoint—the staff layers fragrances into several services, including aroma manicures, which perfume hands more effectively than a stack of corsages.
When Leslee Wilburn realized Las Vegas lacked a family-friendly massage practice, she decided to open one herself and found the perfect name, fittingly, in her young daughter, Kaela. Kaela’s middle name, Ilan, means family tree and symbolizes the philosophy Wilburn founded her massage studio on, namely the aim to teach people of all ages the benefits of massage. Whether receiving a massage or learning how to give one, families can spend quality relaxation time together within Wilburn’s space.
A licensed and nationally certified massage therapist, Wilburn performs massages for kids and adults in a candlelit treatment room. While she eases parents' quotidian stress, children wait their turn in a cozy, home-like lounge area complete with a television and comfortable sofas. During kids' massages, Wilburn helps young muscles and joints develop balance and coordination, and she relieves the stress accumulated from cooking dinner day in and day out with plastic toy food. She also teaches massage classes for couples or new moms and hosts Massage n' Mingle parties where guests set up their own food and drink in the refreshment area to celebrate birthdays or ladies nights out.

Hot desert air churns in from the distant dusty hills, but it’s given no quarter at Destination Academy Cosmetology School. Here, turquoise walls and porthole-shaped mirrors evoke the feel of a vessel bobbing in the water of a cool oasis. Though the spa-salon’s windows reveal sweeping views of the mountains, its private treatment rooms shield clients from the desert sun with candlelight, tubs big enough for two, and a choice of seven kinds of aromatherapy including french lavender and new handbag. On the second floor, expert stylists—some of whom may be alumni of Destination Academy, the salon’s nationally accredited training program—use Moroccanoil and Pureology to shape cuts to individual faces and style preferences.
Royal jelly and golden algae might sound like they belong in the queen's aquarium, but at Serenity Spa, they're just a couple of beauty-boosting spa ingredients. The Royal Jelly facial nourishes and revitalizes skin, diminishing signs of stress to leave skin glowing. Golden algae is part of the Gold Star body wrap, which nourishes the body to reduce signs of aging while awakening the senses with exotic aromas. Other spa services include organic facials, deep-tissue and Swedish massages, and paraffin treatments for hands and feet. It's not a surprise to find organic ingredients in many of the spa's treatments, unlike finding a leprechaun that's allergic to gold.
