Venus Salon and Spa's staff addresses nearly any beauty or relaxation need with their full menu of treatments. Stylists in the salon work within the chocolaty yet inedible frames of full-length mirrors to alter strands' length, shape, and color. Down the hall, aestheticians extract grime with the help of Dermalogica products, while airbrush artists harvest bronzy glows with organic spray tanning formulas. At the nail stations, technicians pluck feet freshly exfoliated with a sea-salt scrub from gilded pedicure bowls before brushing on OPI or Shellac polish.
CD Danza Salon & Spa’s crew of beauty experts is ardent about polishing women, men, and androids with personalized services and products from Aveda and Bumble and bumble. Pamper hair right where it enters the brain with a root glaze ($65), mold it into a designer 'do ($34–$65), or evict errant follicular outgrowths from cheeks ($22), hands ($18), and full backs ($65) with waxing services. Heal hard-worn hands and feet with a spa manicure ($37) and spa pedicure ($63), or mollycoddle worn-out muscles with a Swedish massage ($80+) or a rejuvenating application of chewy candied fish. To enhance facial performance, guests can ask for a makeup application ($35+), an Aveda powder ($35), or a CD Danza signature makeup lesson ($75).
The welcoming staff at Salon Tii Gavo ushers clients into their warm southwestern studio for a full range of transformative grooming services. A trendy feathering service installs three wispy plumes into coiffures, creating a bohemian look so flattering it makes other hairdos perm up in jealousy. Hair-havers can choose the feathers' placement for a custom style that lasts for up to six weeks and withstands washing, blow-drying, flat-ironing, and curling.
At Silhouette Organic Beauty Lounge, guests enjoy a completely organic experience. Along with the organic hair and skincare products—many of which are also vegan, gluten-free, or wheat-free—the beauty lounge also provides local, organic teas for guests. The spa even features LED lighting, which is softer on the eyes than fluorescent lighting or interrogations done with the spotlights used to illuminate the space shuttle at night.
While the choice of beauty services can vary widely—from a keratin treatment to lash extensions or a mani-pedi—there's a common purpose in all of them. The staff aims to have guests leave feeling refreshed and beautiful, which is easier to guarantee since there are no harmful chemicals used in the services.
Bianco & Co.'s exposed brick walls and ductwork stand in stark contrast to its stylish, modern d?cor?delivering an industrial, yet upscale feel. There, a professional staff of aestheticians, massage therapists, and nail techs busily tend to clients' every beauty need. While seated in front of framed mirrors, guests relax as stylists update their locks with products from Kevin Murphy, Moroccan Oil and L'Oreal Professional. Makeup artists are also on hand to cover up blemishes or detachable moles with loose powders from Glo Minerals. Spa treatments take place in private rooms, where guests luxuriate with mud wraps and Dermalogica facials.
The specialists at ILash Factory favor eyelash extensions made from fine materials, be they soft silk, feathery faux mink, or shimmery genuine unicorn tail. They affix luxurious extensions in a variety of sizes to natural lashlines one by one, arranging them in a choice of looks that include dramatic, cat-eye, and natural. After the initial application, which can take up to two hours, the lash specialist offers follow-up appointments during which they touch up and restore extensions after weeks of wear.
