Esthetique Paris Spa

I can’t even count the number of times I’ve hightailed over to Esthetique Paris Spa for the help of owner and aesthetician Anna (pronounced Anya). The bustling salon and separate day spa area serves the affluent community of north Scottsdale and is located in the once prestigious but now sleepy Citadel center. The aesthetics rooms […]

Salon Surreal

We sent our intern and super sleuth Katie to Salon Surreal in Phoenix to follow up on rumors that not only were the stylists fabulous, but the aestheticians were too. Apparently, reports of their top-notch services have not been exaggerated! Here’s Katie’s report. Let me say first that I am not a “facial virgin.” I […]

Steven Paul Salon

I’ll get right to the point here: Very funky. Very cool. Awesome location. Best hair cut ever. I was introduced to Steven Paul Salon by a friend who I ran into one fateful day at a local card shop. I actually didn’t recognize her at first because she had gone from a brunette to a […]

The Spa at Gainey Village Health Club & Spa

A peaceful retreat that merges fitness with pure indulgence. The Spa at Gainey Village wins the wow award hands down. In front of this almost intimidating building was a not-so-little fellow glazed in bronze, sittin’ fit and lookin’ relaxed. Possibly a sign of my fate for the day. Not a bad outlook, I decide. First item […]

Spatini Skin & Nail Spa

Spatini Nails Scottsdale

In dire need of a manicure, I decided to deviate from my usual nail salon to go to Spatini Skin and Nail Spa in Scottsdale. I’ve heard great things about Spatini so I decided it was time to check it out for myself. On the day of my appointment work could not go by fast […]


Fuchsia had us at hello. As soon we stepped foot into this pink haven, we were smitten with the enthusiastic staff, the energetic hues that danced throughout the boutique and spa, and the concept of fun, funky relaxation all rolled up into this hip package. So to get an unbiased review from someone who had […]

Sedona Spa at Los Abrigados Resort & Spa

I've been a long time fan of Sedona Spa at Los Abrigados Resort & Spa. It's a great place to take a yoga class, sit in the jacuzzi and then go for a facial, massage or body wrap. Until recently, it's been one of the only finer spas in town, so these guys have been […]
