The stylists and aestheticians at Botanicals Salon & Spa believe that even with all the high-tech serums, lotions, and hair products that exist in the world, nature is the best for hair and skin. The Aveda concept salon eschews harsh chemicals and uses all-natural Aveda products during hair cuts and colors, facials, waxing services, and mani-pedis. To further support nature and make dolphins high-five each other with joy, clients can bring in their empty Aveda product bottles and have them refilled.
For aesthetician Rebecca Mai, fingernails are blank canvases on which to create intricate works of art. She hones her creative skills at Cassy's Nail Spa, calling upon the training she acquired while enrolled in the Creative Nail Design masters program, which yields a certificate that's signed in polish. After renovating cuticles and moisturizing skin, Rebecca often accentuates nails with hand-painted designs.

Inside Devine's Salon Spa, clients aren't greeted with the thick chemical odor of formaldehyde, ammonia, or some laboratory's version of lavender. What they do smell are natural, aromatic botanicals wafting from a line of Aveda products. The team of stylists and aestheticians utilize these products throughout their full menu of men's and women's haircuts, facials, and body treatments, including complementary Aveda sensory rituals designed to put stressed minds and bodies at ease. And since Aveda products are manufactured with environmentally friendly wind power, it's not unusual for guests to emerge from Devine's looking and feeling beautified, and greeted with a hug from a tree.
The staff at All About Glamour Beauty Salon may be a diverse bunch, some bred locally in Arizona and other parts of the world, but they’re all committed to crafting personal style. Owner Lorena Suarez helms the crew as a board-certified hairstylist specializing in cuts and coloring while Juanita Salas is a licensed cosmetologist.
Together, they beautify clients with numerous services, including women’s and men’s haircuts, coloring treatments, and hair extensions. They also prep clients for special events, fashioning intricate gem-speckled updos for girls celebrating their quinceaneras or their Sweet 17.5 birthdays.
At Star Nails, the décor is simple: the walls display no art, the shelves cradle no plants, and the white color scheme offers only a splash of feminine pink. At this salon, the focus is on the clients, and the space ensures their comfort with eight cushy pedicure chairs and 11 manicure stations equipped with stately leather seating. Besides refining digits with colorful coats of polish, aestheticians also uproot unwanted hair with applications of warm wax, leaving swimsuit zones spotless and eyebrows shaped into either clean arches or a favorite punctuation mark.
