It’s easy to feel pretty in a space as gorgeous as Ide Mania’s. This luxe salon compliments its beautifying patrons with an earth tone color scheme accented with shades of lime, lemon and wood, while giving off a big city vibe that’s backed up with views of high-rise offices through expansive windows. The fashionable but friendly staff is skilled with dramatic up-dos, highlights or lowlights, dimensional coloring and specialties like a tourmaline charged radiance facial. Regulars like the salon for the basics, such as trims, blowouts or underarm waxing, but also for the full treatments, including wedding make-up applications. Special occasion sessions at Ide Mania are made all the more unique thanks to its beautiful location, exemplary space and top-notch service.
The physician-supervised staff at American Photon Lipo Centers, which also serves the Chicago area, offers noninvasive alternatives to liposuction and facelifts. Using BioSlim technology's red light, they can shrink fat cells during BioSculpt treatments or tighten skin during BioLift and BioRejuv treatments. The FDA-approved treatments yield similar results to their surgical equals, and they do so without the threat of scars, downtime, or hospital-room neighbors who lie awake plotting to steal your jello.
Wrinkles don't fare well at Phoenix Laser & Rejuvenation Center. Blame it on the center's photofacials, microdermabrasion treatments, chemical peels, and Botox injections, which are regularly prescribed for patients who want more youthful-looking complexions. The face isn't the only part of the body that receives attention, though. The staff also offers noninvasive laser treatments for removing hair and spider veins.

Elizabeth Trevino, licensed aesthetician and skincare educator, polishes her patrons’ appearances with facials, body waxing, and eyelash-extension services. Specializing in Xtreme eyelash extensions, Trevino carefully selects varying lengths and thicknesses of faux lashes to blend seamlessly with natural sets, bonding them lash by lash to create volume and length. Water-resistant Xtreme lashes hug lids for up to six weeks of mascara-free winking, eventually shedding from natural lashes during their growth cycle or after riding a motorcycle over a bonfire. During skin-treatment sessions, Trevino educates clients about skin types and proper care while smoothing faces with brightening microdermabrasion sessions, moisturizing hydra facials, and pumpkin peels that brighten expressions more effectively than dipping one’s face in wood varnish.
Step in to Salon D’Shayn for all manner of beautifying procedures, from Brazilian waxes to eyelash tinting and more. This funky Phoenix space provides facials, anti-aging treatments and – just for the men – old fashioned warm lather straight razor shaves, complete with scalp massage to round out the pampering. In a friendly touch, drinks and snacks are offered to guests waiting to be seated, and it’s not uncommon to see someone enjoying an ice cold beer with his or her manicure. Keeping the art theme alive and well, the relaxed ambience at Salon D’Shayn features hip music, installations by local artists and a run of teal banquettes, Asian embroidered pillows and a gold ceiling shimmering with pendant lights.
