Unless you were secretly cloned by your parents, your face is unique. Thus, proper skin care requires a personalized touch—the kind provided by certified aesthetician Courtney Odom. At the Southwest Institute, she learned to tailor her services to each individual's skin tone and features. These customized treatments—performed in her private studio—vary in intensity, ranging from refreshing facials to microdermabrasions. Clients can also schedule a waxing session to clear away unwanted body hair.
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 The salon’s charmingly out-of-date decor, however, belies a mission to promote wrinkle-free complexions and hairstyles that radiate hipness.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.
