NV Hair Studio is many things at once. For some patrons, it's a trendy hair studio, where stylists sculpt elegant up-dos and install full weaves. For others, it's a relaxing day spa where aestheticians perform facials designed to address issues ranging from wrinkles to acne. And for male clients, NV Hair Studio harkens back to the classic barbershops of yore, treating gents to the types of hot lather shaves and guy-friendly manicures once enjoyed by cowboys in the old west.
Centre Pointe Nails & Spa’s nail techs sheathe fingertips in vivid regular polish or longer-lasting Shellac. Aestheticians trim and shape finger and toe tips, groom overgrown cuticles, and buff rough skin. Spa chairs bear hug clients like grizzlies embarrassing their college-bound cubs, and a relaxing soak softens digits stiffened after hours of clinging to a rival martial artist’s ceiling. The warm weight of hot stones dissipates the tension that accumulates in feet after hours of standing, jogging, and kicking tin cans at coyotes, and a heated pillow and shoulder massage relieve upper-body stress.
Distinctive Salon and Spa's experienced stylists beautify clients with a full range of salon services powered by plant-based Aveda haircare and beauty products. The staff caters to clients' mental well-being by providing complimentary massages and optional makeup touchups with every service. For general upkeep, men and women can swing by for haircuts ($25+) or haircuts with color treatments ($70+), or reinvent the rainbow with color-glossing ($25+) treatments. Other services include nailcare such as manicures ($25+), Shellac manicures ($40+), and indulgent pedicures ($45+) that leave toes feeling more adored than a boy band's mutually owned puppy.
Done in tasteful cream and beige, Salon Estique at Uptown Plaza salon offers a signature, somewhat exclusive Bumble and bumble Aveda Invati Treatment, though even the most basic services include a thorough consultation, scalp treatment, light massage and product consultation. Spiral wraps and perm come either curly or straight, while color corrections can make anyone a natural beauty after the three to five hour service. There’s something for everyone, such as men’s grooming, children’s cuts and manicures, and even teen facials, all of which can be found at the salon’s bright, wood-lined space on Camelback Road. Extra touches here also impress, such as complimentary bang trims, neck trims and styling lessons between regular appointments.
While surrounded by exposed brick and mint-green walls, Cindy Jones cossets clients with products by Pureology, Dermalogica, and OPI, delivering services that range from cuts and styles to perms and weaves. Elements Salon also keeps a kitchenette stocked with coffee, tea, water, soda, and cookies to refresh waiting clients and ward off vengeful demi-gods, who hate the smell of refreshments.
Though Sharron Nicklas is a certified lash stylist, you won't want the multiple tiers of extensions that other studios boast. That's because she only stocks Xtreme Lashes, a line she's trained with and believes in. Inside her private studio, she plays the role of artist in creating lash lines that accentuate eyes without overwhelming the face. Sharron also performs mani-pedis and brow tinting.
