Situated in a vintage home that pays homage to years past with its baroque mirrors and antique furnishings, Vanity on Mill Hair Gallery & Spa seems like a strange place to seek out youth. The salon’s charmingly out-of-date decor, however, belies a mission to promote wrinkle-free complexions and hairstyles that radiate hipness.
It’s one thing to be in tune with the times, but Vanity on Mill’s stylists go a step further. They begin all of their cuts with informal consultations, during which they gauge each client’s personality before devising a style to match. The aestheticians and massage therapists share this concern for custom treatments, drawing from an extensive menu to find the right fit for acne-prone skin or strained muscles. The salon also infuses skin with bronze hues courtesy of UV-free spray tans, eliminating the need to awkwardly hug one of the Sun Devils attending classes across the street.
Working with the notion that the eyebrows define the face, the threading specialists at Beautif-Eye Studios take care to shape brows into alluring arches without irritating the skin. The threading artists use a pair of tightly wound strands to pluck out stray hairs instead of using waxes or security guards to forcefully evict them. For further beautification, classic European facials brighten skin with a customized blend of products, and oxygenating facials refresh and awaken dull skin by stimulating circulation. Massages of Swedish, deep tissue, and aromatherapy modalities relieve stress, while facial peels hydrate and mend damaged skin.

All of European Wax Center's waxing services are performed using the center's exclusive hard wax. This wax, made in Paris from pure, all-natural beeswax, is designed to evict even the toughest brow brush, while caressing skin as gently as a feather tickling a feather. During an eyebrow wax, skin is thoroughly cleaned, a soothing oil is applied, hairs (one-quarter of an inch minimum length) are plucked, and a post-treatment coating of either ingrown-hair serum or body lotion encourages skin revival. This deal also includes a 20% discount on all retail items, and first-time guests receive a free eyebrow, underarm, or bikini-line waxing, with the option of upgrading to a Brazilian bikini wax for $19.50.
At Sunset Nails, digits go through a pampering regimen of soaks, massages, buffing, and polishing amid an array of treatments. The signature manicures and pedicures include paraffin dips and exfoliating sea-salt or sugar scrubs, and the ultra spa pedicure takes flight in whirlpool spa chairs and lands 35 minutes later with a hot-stone massage. Nail technicians also stock and apply a host of gel and acrylic nails. But the staff tends to more than just nails; permanent makeup technicians accentuate eyes, brows, and lips with cosmetics that negate the need for touchups every morning or every time "We Are the World" comes on the radio.
