Inside Devine's Salon Spa, clients aren't greeted with the thick chemical odor of formaldehyde, ammonia, or some laboratory's version of lavender. What they do smell are natural, aromatic botanicals wafting from a line of Aveda products. The team of stylists and aestheticians utilize these products throughout their full menu of men's and women's haircuts, facials, and body treatments, including complementary Aveda sensory rituals designed to put stressed minds and bodies at ease. And since Aveda products are manufactured with environmentally friendly wind power, it's not unusual for guests to emerge from Devine's looking and feeling beautified, and greeted with a hug from a tree.
Our bodies are constantly subjected to the stresses of work, family, and clingy shadows, so the staff at Color Me Bella Spa and Salon works hard to ensure clients look and feel their best. Stylists transform tresses with cut and coloring treatments and aestheticians swiftly remove fuzz from brows during waxing sessions. In addition to hair services, clients can opt for a mani-pedi or botanical facial, or retreat to a private room for a therapeutic hot stone massage at the hands of the spa's licensed massage therapist.
The eponymous rituals of Salon Rituals seem simple enough. Staff members speak with each client and assesses what defines them, from face shape and skin type to hair texture, sense of style, and dictionary of choice. Then they unleash their font of Aveda-backed knowledge to color hair, perform facials, or teach clients how to apply their own makeup for a flawless style.
Twenty years have taken master stylist Mida from Paris to Glendale, and she can tell you about it in English, French, or Vietnamese. The shearsmith taps into her Parisian education and her experience managing a bridal boutique in California to beautify each client. Her services run the gamut from basic bang cuts to designer haircuts, weaves, and Japanese thermal straightening. To render those services, Mida calls upon products such as Biomega, Pureology, Enjoy, Aquage, and Matrix. She also uses human hair extension to add length, volume, color, or all of the above for as long as one elephant burp?roughly six weeks. Her salon matches the elegance of outgoing clients with its light orange and cream swirled paint, sheer curtains, and an ornate analog clock.
The staff at All About Glamour Beauty Salon may be a diverse bunch, some bred locally in Arizona and others hailing from as far away as India, but they?re all committed to crafting personal style. Owner Lorena Suarez helms the crew as a board-certified hairstylist specializing in cuts and coloring while Juanita Salas is a licensed cosmetologist.
Together, they beautify clients with numerous services, including women?s and men?s haircuts, coloring treatments, hair extensions, and eyebrow threading. They also prep clients for special events, fashioning intricate gem-speckled updos for girls celebrating their quinceaneras or their Sweet 17.5 birthdays.
Half a dozen facials and plenty of waxing treatments are the bread and butter of The Best Little Spa, where licensed aestheticians care for their clients' complexions in a relaxed atmosphere. The team spends around 60 minutes per facial, cleansing and steaming skin during the European treatment or combating acne and abandoned whack-a-mole holes with the high-frequency Blemish Blaster facial. Diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands, meanwhile, work to buff away age spots and shrink pores. The staff members can embellish any facial with add-ons such as collagen masks. They also make way for tiny condos on the skin by waxing an array of body areas.
