Mirror, Mirror: Our picks for The Best Hair and Beauty Spots in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is one of the glitziest cities in the world, so in-the-know locals and visitors kick off their weekends with a visit to the salon. A blow-out and makeup application (don’t skimp on the false eyelashes!) are a must. Go big, go glam. Only in Vegas!

Platinum Entourage
Newly expanded to keep up with demand, Platinum Entourage is the blowdry and makeup mecca for local media, models and professionals of any kind who need to look glam in a hurry. Located off the 215, Platinum makes sure that tourists don’t get left out of the party: Car service is available to and from any Strip property. Bachelorette groups and girls’ trips are welcome and can relax in their own VIP area, where they may sip champagne as they all get glam. 6670 S Tenaya Way, (702) 410-5459

Downtown’s most popular salon, Globe, offers an impressive mix of hair and skin treatments. Waxing, facials and micro-dermabrasion (plus makeup application of course) round out the skin side. And your tresses will look stunning after an hour or two in the hip hair salon – whether it’s a cut, color or blowout you need. (Heck, while you’re there, get all three!) 900 S Las Vegas Blvd #130, (702) 938-4247

Violet Hour Hair, Nails & Beauty
Violet Hour at CosmopolitanThe Strip’s newest hotel is exploding with “cool” quotient, and its salon, The Violet Hour, will get you ready to join the fun. Sip on a glass of bubbly while the best in the business whip your hair into shape. Then sit pretty in the makeup chair as your look goes from day to dramatic – down to the Bambi-worthy fake eyelashes so strong you can sleep in them. On the way out, you just might decide to blow your night out even more than you were planning, because you look that good. 3708 Las Vegas Boulevard, (877) 388-0121

Also offered: anything hair-related, makeup, and spray tanning. 3570 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 731-7791

Visitors from towns without (gasp!) a Sephora die over the Strip’s three locations. Each locale (Forum Shops, Venetian Strip-side, and Miracle Mile Shops) is enormous and packed with all the skincare, perfumes, makeup and accessories a girl could dream of. Forget something at home? No problem – hit Sephora for a replacement, and a few additional goodies, of course. Some of the largest Sephoras in the world, all three often host special events with makeup companies and other beauty heavyweights. Need help with your new product? Sephora staff are always on hand to help you apply. Various Locations
