The Oasis Salon & Spa’s team complements its services with products developed by professional skincare, hair, and nail specialists. This harmonious marriage is nowhere more evident than in the salon, where formulas from Joico add new dimension to hair and boar-bristle brushes from Aquage help stylists coax out tangles.
The spa’s aestheticians formulate their custom facials with Dermalogica skincare products developed by the International Dermal Institute. After thoroughly cleansing pores with these powerful formulas they may use Mirabella Beauty mineral makeups to add some much-needed flair to rock collections. Not to be outdone, nail technicians finish off their spa mani-pedis with vibrant shades of OPI polish. In private massage rooms therapists rely on their own nimble hands to dissipate tension during Swedish and deep-tissue massages.

Chop it Up Barbershop's seasoned shearers creatively prune all variety of head topiaries while refereeing intelligent chatter about everything from sports to politics. During a luxurious 30-minute trim, locks bask under clippers’ trendsetting radiance, escaping the taxing responsibility of shielding scalps from sunbeams and wigs in search of a place to roost. Burst free from the shackles of shouted bar-side anecdotes and the Chinese fingertraps of crowded billiards halls to challenge a buddy at the central pool table. The clack of spheres gently weaves through Chop It Up Barbershop's open space, complete with hardwood floors and dynamically designed black and white walls.
When the staffers at Desert Sun Tanning Salons say they can fix your problems with a cocktail, they’re not talking about libations. Instead, they’re referring to a method that combines two types of bronzing styles. After lying in a traditional sunbed, patrons pop into an automatic spray-tanning booth. The idea is that the UV rays in the bed trigger melanin production and open the pores so that the spray tan goes on darker and lasts longer. Of course, customers can indulge in either of these options separately, choosing from a fleet of machinery that includes Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless tanning booths and silver-, gold-, and platinum-level sunbeds.
They can also undergo a session that doesn’t change the skin’s tone, but, rather, tones it. Red-light therapy drenches the skin in fluorescent light that boosts collagen production in order to firm skin, tighten muscles, and transform sagging bloomers into boxer briefs. Regular salon visitors can consider purchasing a membership, which entitles them to tanning-bed upgrades and discounts on skincare products.
TLC Skin Care Clinic employs two women with extensive credentials. Stephanie Negrete, a registered nurse and licensed aesthetician, is a US Army veteran who served in intensive care units during her service. Danell Banks boasts more than a decade in the field of medical aesthetics, and specializes in chemical peels and dermaplaning. Accompanied by an onsite doctor, these two bring cutting-edge skincare treatments to the table. Stephanie uses Botox and dermal fillers to iron out wrinkles, and they both offer custom medical facials and peels to coax out color and detox pores. In addition, their office is equipped with advanced technology that allows them to perform nonsurgical galvanic and radio-frequency treatments that help clients retain their youthful looks.
