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.
While some people believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, others believe it resides somewhere closer to the edge. Both groups would feel right at home at The Eyelash Connection, where licensed aestheticians divide their time between helping clients enhance their outward appearances and curating a calm, stress-free environment designed to promote wellness from within. Their signature eyelash extensions help trim minutes off of home makeup routines with waterproof strands that are affixed one by one instead of in false-looking strips. Annual continuing-education courses also help the staffers resharpen skills, which they channel into full-body waxing services and personalized skincare facials designed to treat everything from acne-prone complexions to backs covered in scratch 'n' sniff stickers.

Allure Medspa offers tailor-made treatments to clear and smooth the body's most visible layer. The photofacial uses light energy, or IPL, to obliterate signs of skin damage from rosacea plagues, sun assaults, age-related sieges, and overly aggressive pieing.
The Paul Mitchell-trained stylists at Ethan Douglas sculpt women’s, men’s, and children’s manes into fashionable coifs. The amiable mop-snippers provide a personalized cut and a thorough blow-dry that fixes newly styled strands into a warm, tangle-free bed for falling acorns. Clients who opt for the Awapuhi deep conditioning treatment will receive the service in a private room where the formula will be applied to the hair, followed up with a blow-dry and style. The gel-based product uses natural keratin protein to smooth flowing follicles, eschewing formaldehyde in favor of an organic aldehyde, which is gentler on most people and most high-school chemistry-lab frogs.
