Yolande Carson has her stylistic feet in both the historical and modern world. She graduated from On Set Motion Picture Hair Academy with a focus on wig and period hairstyling. She used those skills to add an air of authenticity to historical films, indies, and music videos—where even a star’s hair can demand its own trailer. Now the owner of Scissors Paper Rock Salon, Yolande draws on her 27 years of professional experience to lead a fleet of deft stylists as they shear and color locks using Enjoy haircare products.
Where the Scissors Paper Rock’s stylists leave off, skilled aesthetician Tatiana Siegfried picks up, perfecting skin with waxing and facials that incorporate custom masks. Before they leave, clients can drop by the salon’s boutique, which stocks purses, jewelry by Zoe Kanemitsu, and vintage dresses.
The team at Jubilee Salon and Spa includes pampering professionals one would expect—stylists, nail techs, aestheticians—but to take the venue's de-stressing services to the next level, an onsite chiropractor eases aches caused by injuries, desk jobs, or Cirque du Soleil auditions via massages and physiotherapy. The facility's sleek, modern furnishings are juxtaposed with the warm chocolate- and vanilla-colored walls in an open space whose elegance is accentuated with Greek-style columns and hanging chandeliers. The staff's signature facials and body wraps render skin glowing, and hair treatments from simple cuts to bridal updos get a hand from Morrocanoil, Eufora, and Dermalogica products.
While putting your best foot forward is always sound advice, the task is often made difficult by work and other daily stresses. That's where Joy Foot Massage & Reflexology comes in. Through the art of reflexology, the staff helps relieve tension and induce relaxation in their clients. They apply pressure to points of the feet that correspond to other bodily areas, thereby promoting full-body wellness and the sensation of being pat on the back for just being you. Therapists also counter stress with full body massages as well as a Signature Relaxation Package that focuses on the upper body and feet.
Located in the heart of Pasadena on Colorado Boulevard, Miracle Spa offers a respite from the bustling streets with a slew of relaxation and beauty services, specializing in foot reflexology. At the soothing and professional haven, certified therapists and aestheticians welcome clients to sink into cushy leather reclining chairs, and then get to work on weary feet. They apply firm pressure to specific points on the feet, which are thought to bring physical benefits to organ systems, such as cheering up a sad spleen. But feet aren't the only body parts that surrender to relaxation here, as the aestheticians also perform facials and massage therapy.
Curating a menu of skin and muscle-focused treatments, the staff of Massage Plus Company helps its clients achieve relaxed and refreshed states. The salon’s signature massage services tame tension with five modalities that accommodate injuries, pregnancy, and anxiety that won’t go away no matter how many stress balls you eat. Clients can sink deeper into peaceful bliss by augmenting the 60- to 90-minute sessions with heated stones and mood-enhancing aromatherapy oils. Aestheticians also show their skills during the salon’s array of customized facials and waxing treatments to create smooth, glowing complexions free of unwanted hair or fine lines.
Amadeus Spa's staff and interior has appeared in the film Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde, graced television screens on ABC's Extreme Makeover and Millionaire Matchmaker, and exhibited their handiwork on the Rose Bowl queen and her court of chrysanthemum noblesse for two decades. Readers of the Los Angeles Times even voted the shop the best for facials and skin care in the San Gabriel Valley in 2012 and 2011.
Amadeus's massage therapists and nail technicians take great care and pride in pampering clients in a clean and sanitary environment. Individual autoclave sanitized tools are used in each nail service, and every nail technician is re-trained in-house to ensure quality and updated mastery of the hand jive. Guests receive slippers, robes, and complimentary skin consultations upon request, and may pad down the scented hallways after their treatment to decompress in a eucalyptus steam room.
