Megan Gardner at Covet Hair Studio & Boutique devotes her skills to primping and beautifying hair. She might use ammonia-free color from Matrix for single-process treatments or stick to the basics by cutting, styling, and conditioning locks. Or, she might render highlights with Pureology products. If Megan’s clients feel aesthetically reinvigorated after their hair work, they might also quell a fashion craving by shopping at the boutique side of the hair salon, which purveys clothing, jewelry, handbags, and accessories.
A graduate of Utah College of Massage Therapy, Shayna Dunn has spent the past four years quelling aches and tension with a host of massage modalities. During sessions held within Biofit Bootcamp, she might break up muscular knots with deep-tissue kneads or soothe regularly worked muscles to enhance athletic performance. But not all work is confined to an in-office session. Shayna demonstrates a variety of stretches that can be performed daily to reduce muscle soreness.
The wellness wizards at Shangri-La Spa invigorate bodies by pampering overworked toes, kneading away muscle tension, and assessing overall body health . Each wellness package starts with a 50-minute spa pedicure, which treats feet to an antimicrobial milk-and-honey foot soak that, much like a Hazmat sock, extracts toxins from human flippers. Attentive aestheticians scrub toes with an all-natural sugar scrub before treating backup hands to a choice of foot-detox mask or paraffin-wax treatment, a polish application, and a soothing foot-and-leg massage. Next, a licensed massage therapist strokes away body stresses during a 60-minute body massage, which takes place in an individual soundproof room to let patrons unwind in private. Once patients are as relaxed and cool as a cucumber wearing sunglasses, a custom body-scan health assessment uses biofeedback technology to examine body processes and uncover food sensitivities, hormonal imbalances, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and long-lost lego pieces.
At Le Belle Visage Day Spa, master aestheticians Terra and Jenifer showcase supple skin with their naturally luxurious facials. Retroactively reward faces for overtime smiling hours with a Le Belle Visage signature facial (a $75 value). During this rejuvenating 90-minute treatment, the savvy skinsperts exterminate dirt and oil with two cleanses, followed by a deep exfoliation and facial massage, giving cheeks a youthful, just-licked glow. Next, faces are slathered with a custom mask, serums, and moisturizer before furthering restful repose with ultrasound therapy, a lip-and-eye treatment, neck-and-upper-back massage, and a paraffin-wax treatment for hands, feet or exhausted leg candles.
Though primarily known for its expression-enhancing facials, Surface Medical Spas extends its professional pampering practices to soothe burdened bodies and tender tendons with a series of stress-subverting massages. Acquiesce to an aromatherapy stone massage that mellows muscles with an essential blend of oils. Or, opt for classical carnal conditioning with the spa's signature rubdown, which mixes Swedish techniques with deep-tissue therapies and reflexology.
