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.
BOLD's 10-minute spray-tan process is powered by Infinity Sun technology, which utilizes advanced turbine engineering to spritz a fine mist of Infinity bronze tanning solution onto you during your single tanning session. Containing a bronzer derived from walnut extracts, this all-natural, anti-aging solution gives you instant color that continues to darken in the hours following your session and lasts five to ten days, fading gradually. If you choose to tan at home, your expert spray specialist will perform his or her duty in either the shower or in one of BOLD's travel tents, which pop up easily in backyards, garages, or on any level surface. Let BOLD Body Bronzing give your skin-suit a tantalizing and evenly toned tan that's free of carrot-esque color blotches.
V Nails is out to prove that not all strip mall nail salons are created equal. While the simple décor – a run of white walls with a few colorful touches, glass fronting and classic treatment chairs – is reminiscent of many nail spots throughout Las Vegas, V Nails exceeds in going above and beyond the basics in most other ways. The simple storefront provides a relatively inexpensive nail treatment session, and no appointments are necessary; just walk in expecting to be pampered. Besides providing basic manicure and pedicure services, plus acrylic nail tip sets, V Nails also focuses on eyebrow waxing, allowing clients to receive all their basic needs in one easy stop. As an added bonus, V Nails specializes in gel nails, fun colors and unique designs that are catered to each individual.
