When Denise Forte Ghiglia left a corporate career to own her own business and pursue a love for fashion, she knew just who to enlist to help women look beautiful and fashion forward. Inside the salon, a team that includes nine stylists, a lash artist, an aesthetician, and a nutritionist meet all facial, hair-cutting, coloring, and extension needs. A wide selection of fashion-forward clothes are also available in the boutique.
All of European Wax Center's waxing services are performed using the center's exclusive hard wax. This wax, made in Paris from pure, all-natural beeswax, is designed to evict even the toughest brow brush, while caressing skin as gently as a feather tickling a feather. During an eyebrow wax, skin is thoroughly cleaned, a soothing oil is applied, hairs (one-quarter of an inch minimum length) are plucked, and a post-treatment coating of either ingrown-hair serum or body lotion encourages skin revival. This deal also includes a 20% discount on all retail items, and first-time guests receive a free eyebrow, underarm, or bikini-line waxing, with the option of upgrading to a Brazilian bikini wax for $19.50.

Hawaiian Experience Spa welcomes visitors to relax and enjoy all the perks of a tropical vacation without the pricey plane ticket. Owners Steve and Cathy Ibach both studied Hawaiian lomi lomi massage in Maui and decided to bring the unique style to their massage studios in Scottsdale and Chandler. There, it plays a starring role on a menu of island-inspired treatments that include massages performed with hot sea shells or volcanic lava rocks and body scrubs and wraps that use Kaua'i clay and organic lavender grown in Maui. A centuries-old technique, the lomi lomi massage sees therapists incorporating their forearms as they run long strokes down the entire length of the body, massaging both the front and underside at once. To make the service extra-indulgent, Hawaiian Experience Spa's therapists can enhance the lomi lomi massage with coconut oil and sea salt or incorporate a special oil that helps fight cellulite and makes tight pants a cinch to slip into.
Each facility beams with a Hawaiian theme, from sand-colored furnishings and bamboo accents to a front desk modeled after a tiki bar. The friendly, relaxing atmosphere makes the spa a great place for parties. During parties, guests can enjoy snacks and music while enjoying their choice of treatments, including any type of massage or facials performed with ?minence organic skincare products.
