The soothing, brightly lit beauty spot boasts a professionally passionate staff that treats stressed-out soul sacks to high-quality, customized treatments. Boost your aerodynamics before the office bikini relay with a Brazilian wax, administered quickly and modestly, or bid adieu to mug whiskers with a lip ($12), cheek ($12), or nose ($7) wax. A swift session in underarm deforestation will devastate unwanted ecosystems ($15), and a full leg wax ($50) imbues gams with hairless confidence and smoother steps when scaling elevator shafts.
Physical. Social. Intellectual. Recreational. Individual. Financial. Vocational. These are the seven elements of The Seven Club Health & Wellness Spa, a health and wellness spa dedicated to balanced living. The staff, which includes aestheticians, massage therapists, a nutritionist, and a nail technician, helps its clients achieve this balance through services that address these areas, such as massage, fitness training, and life coaching.
A teacher overwhelmed with classroom tasks and student responsibilities; a 20-something recovering from the insecurities of teenage acne—Charlie Ward has served them both. Like many who write in his patient testimonials, this pair praises the master aesthetician's professional skill and personal kindness. "Having healthy habits, including good skincare," Charlie writes on his website, "[has] helped me enjoy [life] even more." Charlie pebbles his path to healthier, more vibrant skin with services that range from the technologically advanced photofacial treatment, which uses intense pulsed light to improve sun-damaged skin, to the holistic scrub-and-rub massages, which dose backs and bodies with salt crystals from the Great Salt Lake before hot towels and lotions cleanse and refresh. He also stays up-to-date on his industry's latest trends and technologies, writing on his blog about some of the latent effects of tattoos and new breakthroughs in heat-resistant makeup that prove ideal for soldiers fighting in war zones or chefs cooking in full-body snowsuits.
The staff at Urban Retreat Spa & Salon believe that physical beauty begins with a healthy attitude. While cultivating a positive vibe inside a comfortable spa setting, they offer a full range of services that use cutting-edge techniques for skincare, body waxing, and nail treatments. Massages in a number of modalities, including pregnancy, hot-stone, and deep-tissue, relax muscles, and laser treatments—including skin rejuvenation and hair removal—show off the spa's high-tech equipment. In addition to beautifying services, Urban Retreat maintains the Whimsy Clothing Boutique, where stylists match shoppers to eclectic fashions.
They say good things come to those who wait. For Aura Hair and Body Studio, that thing was a person, a master aesthetician named Rebecca Segars. After a 13-year stint in the financial industry, Rebecca decided to pursue her passion for skincare. She spent the next 11 years practicing in her own studio space in Holladay, and 3 years at Got Beauty, before joining the Aura team and their talented staff of stylists. Rebecca specializes in microdermabrasion, chemical peels, facials, and waxing.
Located inside Visage Salon & Day Spa, Nails by Maddison beautifies nails with a variety of services. The nail-art menu available from the Salt Lake City-based aesthetician includes manicures, pedicures, custom glitter, decals, enamel, and more. Overall, the options can bring a touch of color and a world of creativity to the fingers and toes.
