The Trump International Hotel Las Vegas is only a stone’s throw from the strip and considering its location, it’s hard to believe how sedate and soothing The Trump can be. The level of service and sumptuousness should not surprise, and the rooms are truly among the most elegant and amenity-rich in the city. The pool deck offers private cabanas and daybeds to while away hours, while the adjacent spa offers unmatched restorative treatments. The lobby bar is an excellent spot for a serious meeting, and should the shopping bug bite, Fashion Show Mall's impressive array of names – including Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Macy's and Forever 21 – live directly across from the front entrance. Strip resorts including Wynn/Encore and Venetian/Palazzo are within reasonable walking distance.
Outside, fountains pulse, bright lights shine, and sidewalks remain crowded well into the night. But inside the Spa and Salon at the Golden Nugget, classical decor and full-body spa services keep the outside world at bay. The sunny atrium, ringed with columns and draped white curtains, cocoons clients with an atmosphere that BestOfVegas.com says, "evokes class, elegance, and luxury." Within the spa, aestheticians perform massages or body treatments with organic royal honey or seaweed that go hand-in-hand with salon services to craft a knockout nighttime look. Beyond the beautifying treatment rooms, clients can jog, run, or endlessly summersault on Cybex cardiovascular machines poised above the hotel's shark tank.
Cuticles: Defending Your Digits
Cuticles form an occasionally contested border between skin and nail. Learn how nail technicians can safely get them into good condition with Groupon’s investigation.
No one pays much attention to cuticles until they start causing trouble. Either they grow thick enough to intrude on a uniform manicure or they tear and cause pain. But the clingy strips of skin at the bottom of each nail actually perform some important functions. First, cuticles act as protective barriers that help new keratin cells grow into long, healthy nails instead of short, creepy talons. Second, they help keep bacteria out of the nail bed, where it can cause painful infections.
Though some nail salons offer to trim your cuticles during a manicure, the risk of infection—even with properly sanitized instruments—may outweigh any aesthetic benefit. After all, cuticles will grow back no matter what, so even a temporarily neater line at the base of the nail is unlikely to last for more than a few days. But nail technicians do have ways of fashioning smooth ovals or almond shapes without exposing the nail to dangerous intruders. First, they’ll avoid tearing the skin by making sure it’s as soft and supple as possible. An intensive moisturizer will help, as will a soak in a bowl of warm water. Once the hands are well-conditioned, the tech will begin carefully, gently working with a cuticle stick, first pushing the cuticles back and then, with a tiny circular motion, buffing away any dead skin remnants and dried-on cupcake frosting still clinging to the nail.

The beauty specialists at Centennial Hills Salon and Day Spa dedicate their daily beautification efforts to the memory and mission of founder Nancy Jane Shaw. After suffering a debilitating stroke in 1997, Shaw unsuccessfully with her husband for a salon where she could sit comfortably in her wheelchair while having her hair and nails done. Her determined family stepped up to fill Las Vegas's need for an accessible salon and day spa and began construction on the project in 2001. Though Shaw passed away in 2005, her legacy lives on in a place where caring staffers meet the needs of customers regardless of their level of mobility, complete with features such as a wheelchair ramp and an ample spa shower with grab bars.
The natural and organic ingredients and eco-friendly philosophy of the Aveda line proved to match the salon and day spa's vision. In addition to haircuts, deep-conditioning treatments, and extensions, stylists transform hues with 97% naturally derived hair color with sunflower and jojoba oils. The crew also offers custom facials, soothing massages, fragrant mani-pedis, and makeup application for brides-to-be or clowns trying to transition back into civilian life.
"Just think of us as the Gucci of hair," says Canyon Falls Spa & Salon managing partner Adam Rimmel. "If you want nice hair extensions, you come to me." That's because Adam, who has worked in the extension business for more than six years, works with exclusive suppliers to bring in 100% human hair. He also ensures that a state-accredited company certifies all of his extension master stylists.
But Canyon Falls Spa & Salon's three locations offer more than just extensions—clients can expect attentive, professional service from any hairstylist, aesthetician, or nail technician on the staff. "They're all local, so they're all looking to build their clientele based on their positive customer experiences," Adam says, adding that many of his employees have a following of regular customers. He also calls out his "phenomenal" skincare staff members, who boast an average of 10–12 years of experience. Intent on "improving skin, not just pampering skin," they wield premium beauty products whose quality often makes a strong impression—clients "know the difference as soon as they smell it," Adam says.
All the locations have private rooms for facials and waxing, as well as massage chairs with footbaths for pedicures. The Lake Mead Boulevard and Eastern Avenue locations also employ massage therapists who help clients work out kinks caused by twisting around to look at their newly beautified hair from the back.
