Where Wellness Is a Necessity

Desert Beauty Lab offers a luxurious retreat for locals to organically coexist with wellness

“My vision for Desert Beauty Lab embodies a vigorous culture of wellness that continually starts with self-care, love, and family. This represents my journey, my dream, and now my salon,” says Susan Salas, the Founder of Desert Beauty Lab, the new spa where “wellness is a necessity.”

Susan worked in a five-star resort for 16 years, where she dreamt of one day giving local clients the luxury experience given to tourists. Salas’ dream came true in December 2021 when she opened her spa to “provide innovative and health-conscious services and integrate peace within the mind, body, and spirit.”

Desert Beauty Lab is a holistic luxury wellness spa where beauty can organically coexist with wellness. The company is deeply committed to wellness for both the body and the planet. It offers services that cultivate only safe, natural, and high-quality products without ever using harsh or abrasive chemicals. The Desert Beauty Lab team centers their commitment to sustainability in every facet of their work. They reduce paper waste, recycle nail polish bottles, and are free of plastic waste. They also keep the salon clean by using eco-friendly cleaning supplies that are “more beneficial to the earth.”

“I wanted to build a wellness spa where our local community could retreat in a salon that prioritized tranquility and eminence."  Our team has built a culture that leads with the important notion of how we live daily: do what you love and always do it in the path of lifelong wellness.” 

Once guests step into Desert Beauty Lab, they understand why it’s revered as a place to embark on a journey of transformative services focusing on the mind and body. The experiential atmosphere is unlike many salons in the Las Vegas Valley. Guests are welcomed into the salon and treated like family instead of being greeted by the toxic fumes of acrylic nails. Susan and her team are meticulous in every detail of their guests' experience.

Desert Beauty Lab offers zero-degree gravity pedicure chairs, which elevates the leg above the position of the heart, eliminating the gravitational weight on the spine. They offer audio-guided meditation headsets where guests are levitated into another plane of relaxation as the Desert Beauty Lab teams take care of their hands and feet via their various pedicure and manicure options. One popular option is the addition of the Theragun for deep muscle therapy to manicures and pedicures. At the end of their relaxing session, guests are welcome to take their nail files, buffers, and pumice stones for future use at home.

Susan has made it her mission for prices to always remain affordable even though they utilize top-of-the-line and exclusive products. And because she values the local community, the company participates in many philanthropic initiatives.

“Giving back is at the heart of everything we do, and it will always be integral in who we are,” explained Susan. “We also have been hosting events that focus on empowerment, health, and regimen.”
