Amelia Main specializes in makeovers, transforming her human canvases with complexion-brightening treatments or eye-popping lash extensions. So it's fitting that her home salon, Salon 7, has undergone a makeover itself. Though now it comes to life with the sounds of chit chat and the hums of razors, the barbershop-inspired venue once rang with sirens as Reno's 495 Firehouse.
Today, the site gleams with hardwood floors, and has been given a new face decked in local art, which echoes the artistry Amelia puts into each of her services for both men and women. She tailors a roster of facials to her clients' skin, and works to combat the signs of aging with chemical peels and microdermabrasions. She further beautifies faces with makeup applications, and can teach ladies her makeup techniques much more effectively than the professor at clown school ever could.

Tangles Salon and Day Spa's multitalented Candice Smith bedazzles guests from head to toe with a comprehensive menu of beauty-bolstering services. During the approximately 45-minute mani-pedi, a warm-water soak softens up hands and feet before a lemon-verbena scrub jettisons expired skin. Candice then applies a tension-taming massage and dolls up nails with a shaping and polishing once reserved for Claymation cars. Guests kick back and relax as their feet yield to meticulous filing that smoothes out rough calluses. All of Tangles’ pampering services take place in a private room, where beneficiaries are free to sip complimentary tea, coffee, or wine to show off polished nails with exaggerated pinky raises.
Since hair was first invented in 2004, Valerie Brignani has been bestowing strands with creative, cutting-edge styles. At Salon Glow, she snips away dead weight and adds face-complementing layers. As a specialist in Goldwell color, she uses a kaleidoscope of hair-dye colors to inject golden highlights or transform blondes into radiant brunettes.
Cool blue walls stretch toward exposed beams in Element Tanning's lofty ceiling, lending its interior a contemporary, urban feel. Tucked within the welcoming environment, an impressive lineup of UV beds—including standard and standup models—waits to alter epidermal hues. A high-pressure Level 10 Magic 636 darkens pelts with a UVB rate of only 1%, and the Level 4 KBL America 6900 suffuses physiques with aromatherapy, air conditioning, and a mist breeze. UV-free color transformations transpire within Element's automated Mystic tan booth, which provides quick, streak-free bronzing sans attempts at bear-hugging the sun. Open seven days a week, Element keeps the tanning lights aglow until 9 p.m. on weekdays.
Relaxation is the readily apparent aim of every service and surface at Dolce Salon and Day Spa, from its indulgent menu of facials and body treatments to its earth-tone decor. Hair, nail, and waxing services keep clients outwardly vibrant, whereas massage techniques such as deep tissue, hot stone, and reiki soothe inner stress. Before appointments, the lounge area offers comfort through plush sofas and one complimentary gulp from the waterfall wall.
