Although Candi Johnson has spent more than 20 years of her life in the beauty industry, the last decade of her career has been more or less dedicated to med-spa treatments. As the owner of Gem Spa, she helps clients combat the signs of aging with services designed to improve both the tone and texture of skin. The center's GentleLase alexandrite-laser treatments, for instance, beautify skin by removing unwanted stubble in a procedure that?s as noninvasive as a missed prank phone call. By contrast, the med spa?s microdermabrasion treatments and Botox injections give faces the quick boost they need to look more youthful, radiant, and smooth.
At Golden Tan, the staff offers a variety of services that helps guests bronze their bods, whiten their teeth, and slim down. UV tanning and spray tanning help customers achieve their desired levels of beachy bronze or pass for Midas descendants, and an array of moisturizing, antioxidant-packed lotions aims to intensify tans. Teeth-whitening sessions and Formostar infrared body wraps further help clients create their ideal looks at multiple area locations.
Inside Sola Salon Studios, Janine Calderwood snips and styles strands from behind her styling chair. She uses her scissors to craft stylish coifs, ranging from short, chic bobs to long, luxurious layers. The stylist also administers smoothing Brazilian blowouts, which leave manes sleek, shiny, frizz-free, and easier to manage. In addition to haircare services, Janine accentuates eyes with lash extensions.
Annie O'Connor knows a thing or two about vanquishing frizz and unruly curls. The Liscio-certified stylist has been straightening manes every week for the last six years?it?s her main service?and even guarantees each appointment.
But her skill set doesn?t stop there. The graduate of the University of Utah?s College of Fine Arts and the Aveda Institute also cuts strands into face-framing layers and adds new hues with highlights. In addition, she helps brides prepare for their big day with chic updos, photo-worthy makeup, and reassuring pats on the head.
Half salon and spa, half fashion boutique, Pure Beauty Salon has every facet of beauty covered. Stylists make over manes using popular product lines such as Joico, Moroccanoil, and color by Wella, leaving heads looking chic and ready to reward themselves with one of the shop's colorful or animal print scarves. Guests can inquire about colored hair extensions to match the hue from just-purchased earrings or pick out a new handbag to coordinate fingertips coated in OPI polish or CND shellac. Between shopping and stints in the styling chair, guests can also get eyelash extensions from the eyelash specialist or seek out the salon's skincare sage and master aesthetician, Valerie, who keeps skin looking soft and smooth with facials and waxing services for the full body.
Lou Lou?s Skin Spa is run by Laurelle "Lou Lou" Fillmore, a master aesthetician and massage therapist who combines her areas of expertise to pamper bodies from top to tendon. Lou Lou employs more than 20 years of experience to perform custom massages, skincare treatments, and waxing services. Her services take place within a warmly lit, home-like space, where patrons are offered free beverages and $2 high-fives.
