A one-stop shop, The Style Lounge is the only beauty go-to needed inside The LINQ district. Hair styling, blowouts, nails, makeup, and spray tanning are all offered under one chandelier-studded roof.

“Our salon design features clean lines, and it’s very elegant and luxurious with silver and white, plus pops of purple because that is our signature color,” Rose says. “Our whole brand standard is affordable luxury. This is really for anyone who wants to have these fun experiences all for a reasonable price.”
Highlighting her favorite trends this season, Rose says: “Braids are the rage, they are everywhere. Also clip-in extensions with pops of color, and pastel ombres.

Beauty, blowouts and booze collide
Centering the salon is a chic bar: “We are the first style lounge with a full service bar, and one of our signature drinks is the Vanitini,” says Rose. “We are doing a bachelorette party shot as well. We really want to create this whole new concept so you can really make it your own when you are looking at planning that special day.”
Do it up VIP style

Its signature style is named after the High Roller
The Style Lounge’s menu of blowouts include everything from the “Say Yes to the BS (Big and Sexy)” to “It’s A Beautiful Mess” for tousled beach waves. “We have the braid and ponytail lounge, so you can come get really creative braids done from fishtail to waterfall to cascade,” Rose says. “There are so many different braids that are really popular right now on the runway and the red carpet. In a matter of minutes you can walk out with a really cool look.” Its signature look is called The High Roller—modeled after the bun Jennifer Lopez and Sarah Jessica Parker often choose for red carpet appearances.” Right now our menu consists of eight different looks, but variations of each look because not everyone has the same face shape,” she says. “We can customize the looks for you. For women who have finer hair and want longer, luscious hair we have the Ken Paves Hair U Wear clip-in hair extensions for sale, so you can buy them, we’ll put them in and then they go home with you.”
The next best thing to concierge
Because Rose is a veteran in the local hospitality and beauty industry, she’s using her connections to help clients plan their dream day. “We have a relationship with Rent the Runway, so if you or a group of you don’t have anything to wear, we work with them where they can bring the dresses to your room and you can try it out,” she says. “If you want a special birthday cake, we can get it. We are working with Ava Rose agency, so anything we need that I can’t secure, they can, from show tickets to a limo. We also have relationships with vendors who can bring fun novelty items in for bachelorette parties.”

Spray tan sculpting
If you need a little extra va-va-voom to your glow, opt for the “sculpting” spray tan. A customized color blend is mixed for you and darker color is selectively sprayed to make arms, abs and legs look toned and lean. Rose assures us, “You would be surprised at contouring and highlighting—it really is an art. We use product from Bronzed—The Art of Tanning in Vegas. It can really make a big difference.” Why not look extra hot in your Instagram photos? #nofilter
You don’t have to leave your room
Don’t feel like venturing out? Opt for room service style. “Everything we offer here, we can travel anywhere in the city, from a house to a hotel room.” Rose selects stylists for in-room bookings and they bring everything needed to get you Vegas ready.
And even the men aren’t left out…
Believe it or not, even men are getting blowouts these days. The Style Lounge’s “Men’s Swagger” includes a men’s styling and buff and polish shine on their nails.
