Expansive, sunny windows illuminate the deep-red walls framing Mid City Salon’s elegant space, where trained aestheticians groom keratin-based parts with a range of treatments. Stylists revamp hair with trimming and chemical services that alter color and texture without attempting high-risk crayon implantation. Manicurists, meanwhile, outfit natural and acrylic nails in decorative swipes of polish, creating long-lasting style with CND Shellac applications or trendy designs such as cheetah print and flowers. Aestheticians can also rework façades with a quick brow and lip wax or a flawless makeup application. For offsite pampering, stylists arrive at homes during salon birthday parties to give girls aged 3 and older a chic updo, a smattering of glitter makeup, and polished nails that make them feel like adults without memorizing tax-return terminology.
Within the commercial bustle of the Fashion Place Mall, Studio H20 Salon's professional stylists focus on communication, taking the time for consultations with each client before styling a single strand. The clean lines and metallic accents of the salon's industrial-chic interior parallels the modern styles that depart daily on the heads of their many customers. Additionally, hair is treated to services such as dimensional coloring (Studio H20's specialty) and top-notch salon products by such brands as Bumble and bumble and K?rastase. Hair artistry is supplemented by other beauty services, such as manicures dolled out by staff at nearby nail stations and compliments from talking mirrors.
The aestheticians at Nailed! beautify corporeal extremities with a broad scope of salon services, and helped the boutique earn Salt Lake magazine's Best of the Beehive award. The 90-minute salon package begins with a scented sugar scrub and massage that eases feet before toenails are shaped, filed, and decorated with an even coat of polish. Steam, tone, and moisturize tired mugs with a rejuvenating mini facial using Sanitas skincare products, and blanch chompers with a teeth-whitening BleachBright treatment that renders a bright smile more effectively than gargling with lightning.
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.
Cake's services focus on hair care and makeup application. Tame unruly locks by booking a cut (starting at $35 for women and $25 for men) with a master hair shaman or a budding keratin craftsperson; he or she will sense your innermost hair-yearnings, then direct careful scissors in tune with your thoughts and dreams, for a haircut that revolutionizes the way you look in the mirror. Or lighten locks with highlights ($60 for a few, $125 for maximum highlightage); Cake's stylists do highlights like chefs cook Thai food, high-fiving hair palates with a burst of intensity or tickling them with delicate pizzazz.

Pro Tip: It's best to have a clear vision of what you want, or bring a picture.
The sweet irony of becoming a stylist is that no matter how good you are, you can never give yourself a haircut. What do you look for in a stylist when you need a trim?
I look for a stylist that will have a proper consultation and listen to what I want. They need to be precise and up-to-date with styles they provide.
What's the number one grooming tip every person should know?
Use a treatment oil on your hair each time you wash it, get a deep-condition once a month, and stay consistent with getting haircuts.
What other services do you offer besides haircuts?
Color, highlighting, deep-conditions, scalp treatments, blowouts, and special-occasion styles.
