The interior of Roxy CarMichaels Salon conjures an industrial feel that complements the brickyard area surrounding the studio. Naked light bulbs dangle above the graphite-gray floor, and red metal toolboxes stand ready at every styling station, but this factory-like aesthetic is immediately contradicted by the staff members' warm greetings and personalized attention. The trio of master stylists listens to clients’ wildest hair desires while considering matters of texture and facial shape, recommending cuts that augment cheekbones, skirt jawlines, or cover up snapping mandibles. Translucent dividers portion the studio from the waiting area for a contemporary aesthetic that sets clients at ease while they sort through the coffee table’s mound of magazines.
Like all Aveda salons, Landis Aveda Lifestyle Salon helps polish clients' styles with earth-friendly, naturally derived products. After opening a location in Salt Lake City in 2005, the salon has since sprouted a twin location and focused on developing serious talent. Their stylists spend 18 months in training, working their way up from apprentice to Grand Salon level, gaining experience, training, and the ability to gently comb a hibernating bear’s hair without waking it.
Next Full Service Salon's staff includes nine hair stylists and two nail technicians. At salon chairs, the stylists sculpt new 'dos, straighten strands, and add color to hair. Meanwhile, nail techs accent digits with colorful acrylics and chip-resistant Shellac. The staff also applies makeup and waxes eyebrows.
Stylists Cydnie and Emorie help clients to reach new heights of hair-related style within the chic confines of The Salon at Image Studios. Armed with products from brands such as Davines, they create face-flattering cuts, condition locks, and transform the hair with rich color.
Salon Rutted’s expertly trained stylists, aestheticians, and nail technicians coax patrons’ inner beauty to the surface with botanical-based Aveda products and pampering services. Hair artisans craft modern ‘dos with haircuts, deep-conditioning treatments, and complexion-complementing color as clients relax in cushy black chairs. Sunny yellow walls set the mood for bliss-inducing mani-pedis and moisture-bolstering paraffin treatments, which leave hands softer than a teddy bear’s velour bathrobe.
During a 45-minute European facial at Black Tie Salon & Day Spa, clients undergo an epidermal analysis that helps to determine the correct treatment to nourish and relax the skin. A cleansing and an exfoliation remove surface dirt, dead cells, and gravy smudges, and a mask addresses particular skin issues. A hand-and-arm massage delivers soothing strokes to loosen the muscles. Clients can also choose an eyebrow service, crafting perfect arches with which to express delight over their facials. Warm vitamin-infused wax smothers brows before their quick removal with a cloth strip. Threading provides an alternative for those with sensitive skin or a deep empathy for candles. During this method, a twisted cotton thread lassos entire rows of hair to shape brows gently and efficiently while preserving the surrounding skin. Guests awaiting treatment can recline on a plush black-leather couch and peruse a collection of magazines inside a sleek studio of red walls adorned with black mirrors.
