Thanks to its recent remodel, one might be surprised to hear that the salon and spa known as Christopher Stephens has pampered clients with personalized beauty treatments for the past 15 years. The salon’s stylists draw on the experience amassed in that period to add length and definition to manes with 100% human-hair extensions and bioionic straightening tools. Not to be outdone, the aestheticians brighten complexions with seven types of facials and bronze skin with UV-free airbrush-tanning solutions. Whether styling hair or scraping off the sticky remnants of a nightly cocoon, Christopher Stephens’s staff members pride themselves on using professional beauty products from brands such as OPI, Keratin Complex, and BareMinerals.
The staff at Focus Medical Spa understands that no two patients are the same. That’s why an aesthetician, certified nurse, or board-certified doctor will design a treatment package to suit each client after a free consultation. Using products from Obagi, Dermagenetics, and the med spa’s own signature line, aestheticians treat wrinkles and blemishes with acne solutions, lift effect facials, and glycolic-acid peels. Laser technicians also use beams of light to remove spider veins and unwanted hair. The lasers have other functions, too; they remove signs of aging such as broken capillaries and dark pigment, and they make cool sounds when you tap them with a tuning fork.
At Pon International Signature Salon, Steven puts on display all that he's learned during the course of 20 years in the business. That includes everything from trendy, short haircuts to old-school looks. He's a specialist in perms and has a certification in Brazilian blowouts, and he can also help ease patrons through the process of growing their hair long. A background as an educator means that he is good at sharing his knowledge too, and his work has appeared in a range of magazines.
Stylist Nancy Mezied of My OC Hairstylist is a styling Swiss army knife. Not only can she craft designer cuts with scissors, she also buzzes high-and-tights with clippers, adds texture with razor cuts, and spools locks into ornate structures with her bare hands. She also adds length with hair extensions and blitzes drab 'dos with vibrant color with color treatments, partial highlights, or replacing curlers with crayons.
