"Just think of us as the Gucci of hair," says Canyon Falls Spa & Salon managing partner Adam Rimmel. "If you want nice hair extensions, you come to me." That's because Adam, who has worked in the extension business for more than six years, works with exclusive suppliers to bring in 100% human hair. He also ensures that a state-accredited company certifies all of his extension master stylists.
But Canyon Falls Spa & Salon's three locations offer more than just extensions?clients can expect attentive, professional service from any hairstylist, aesthetician, or nail technician on the staff. "They're all local, so they're all looking to build their clientele based on their positive customer experiences," Adam says, adding that many of his employees have a following of regular customers. He also calls out his "phenomenal" skincare staff members, who boast an average of 10?12 years of experience. Intent on "improving skin, not just pampering skin," they wield premium beauty products whose quality often makes a strong impression?clients "know the difference as soon as they smell it," Adam says.
All the locations have private rooms for facials and waxing, as well as massage chairs with footbaths for pedicures. The Lake Mead Boulevard and Eastern Avenue locations also employ massage therapists who help clients work out kinks caused by twisting around to look at their newly beautified hair from the back.
The beauty specialists at Centennial Hills Salon and Day Spa dedicate their daily beautification efforts to the memory and mission of founder Nancy Jane Shaw. After suffering a debilitating stroke in 1997, Shaw unsuccessfully with her husband for a salon where she could sit comfortably in her wheelchair while having her hair and nails done. Her determined family stepped up to fill Las Vegas's need for an accessible salon and day spa and began construction on the project in 2001. Though Shaw passed away in 2005, her legacy lives on in a place where caring staffers meet the needs of customers regardless of their level of mobility, complete with features such as a wheelchair ramp and an ample spa shower with grab bars.
The natural and organic ingredients and eco-friendly philosophy of the Aveda line proved to match the salon and day spa's vision. In addition to haircuts, deep-conditioning treatments, and extensions, stylists transform hues with 97% naturally derived hair color with sunflower and jojoba oils. The crew also offers custom facials, soothing massages, fragrant mani-pedis, and makeup application for brides-to-be or clowns trying to transition back into civilian life.
The Salon at Lakeside's floor-to-ceiling windows grant astonishing glimpses of a tree-lined lake as they pour natural light over dark-wood accents and stately blue walls. Standing behind rows of rich leather chairs, a team of stylists chisels away tired tresses to reveal contemporary looks that reflect each client's personal style. As clients savor a complimentary cocktail and surf on the salon's free WiFi, head experts melt tension and liberate brains of irritating pop songs with soothing scalp massages. After they contour manes with precise, fashionable cuts, they slather hair bearers in products by Schwarzkopf Professional, Enjoy Hair Care, and Nioxin.
When stylists aren't ramping up tints with highlights, multidimensional weaves, and all-over color, they straighten out frizz and add sultry waves to listless locks. Brides-to-be can rest easy on their big day, entrusting their façades to The Salon at Lakeside's artisans, who offer complimentary consultations, practice runs, and pre-ceremony sprints. When their transformations are complete, guests can pick up their vehicles from the complimentary valet service (Thursday–Saturday only) or lounge on the salon's relaxing outdoor veranda.
To avoid the irritation and fleeting results common among standard skincare services, Aminahs Organic Skin Spa goes back to basics—organic fruits, vegetables, seeds, and herbs provide the basis for every treatment the aestheticians perform. Calling on certifications from Éminence Organic Skincare—a Hungarian line that shuns harsh chemicals and additives—the skin experts customize each facial to suit the client's skin type and target nagging issues such as acne blemishes or signs of aging. They keep tabs on their treatments' effectiveness with before-and-after photos and send clients home with an individualized skincare regimen to follow, ensuring that they'll keep the radiant results for as long as possible.

Beyond the spa's dedication to saving skin by using formulas free of parabens, pesticides, sodium lauryl sulfate, they also strive to save the planet—all skincare products are created using wind and solar power and packaged in recycled containers.
