Viva Salon Las Vegas creates hairstyles as chic and modern as its salon space. Hair color may be as bright as the salon's cabinets, bangs may be as uniformly straight as the boxy salon chairs, and hairstyles may be as wavy as the lobby's comma-shaped couch. To achieve these effects, Viva uses high-end products such as Moroccanoil, Pureology, and Goldwell, in addition to being a Paul Mitchell signature salon and certified in Great Lengths hair extensions.

It may look like a funky surf shack, but Paradise Nail Bar is actually an integral pit stop on the road to beauty. During relaxing mani-pedis, the studio's technicians pamper feet with natural scrubs and adorn nails with intricate designs depicting flowers, hearts, and presidential visages. Not to be outdone, the aestheticians cleanse pores with facials and detoxify birthday suits with body wraps within the privacy of a treatment room. Waxing treatments whisk away large swathes of unwanted hair, while threading sessions leave brows artfully arched and upper lips free of fuzz.
Podiatrist Dr. Jodi Politz founded Futzpah 118 with medical-grade hygiene standards to cleanse the minds of germophobes, as well as to serve specialty spa clients such as diabetics, pregnant women, and chemotherapy patients. Experienced staff make use of sterile, single-use mani-pedi sets and aromatherapeutic products to test how well finger pads can smell. The Futzpah Footsie begins by shaping nails and minimizing cuticles, then pampers little piggies with exfoliation before adorning talons in gleaming armor (a $45 value). Manicures also include a massage to deeply relax palms and stretch fingers in preparation for a shadow-puppet reenactment of The Godfather Trilogy (a $20 value). Futzpah 118's luxurious facilities include an array of oversize plush black chairs above sparkling clear basins and beneath ceiling-mounted TVs, and an immense bronze-hued mask exudes serenity.
Rivi Salon & Boutique's skilled aestheticians evict strand squatters from their dermal domiciles using Dermalogica techniques to minimize discomfort and ensure quality hair removal. During the 20- to 45-minute waxing treatments, patrons recline inside a private room as professionals de-hair underarms or tighten lower body perimeters by eradicating stray bristles with a bikini wax. Alternately, a Brazilian wax comprehensively clears the entire area, extricating hair from the bikini zone’s nethermost nooks to leave skin as smooth as a zambonied basketball court.
