Bodycentre Wellness Spa brings well-being back to bodies through treatments that range from nonsurgical cellulite reduction to laser teeth whitening. The spa's massage therapists listen receptively to client cues during therapies that may be tailored toward simple relaxation or enhanced with hot rocks, reflexology, or a hydrating herbal body wrap. Similarly customizable skincare treatments range from traditional facials with aromatherapy to photo-rejuvenation, which uses the healing power of light to stimulate collagen production in sun-damaged skin or aging vacation slides. For internal cleansing, clients can opt to schedule colon hydrotherapy sessions with an experienced practitioner or retreat into the privacy of a Health Mate dry sauna, crafted from Canadian cedar and equipped with amenities such as a CD sound system and reading lamp.
The aestheticians and health aficionados at Skin D' Amour foster total well-being by treating patrons with a holistic approach to beauty. To enhance the exterior, skin experts harness the power of their own line of products as well as formulas from brands such as Murad, Josephine, and EltaMD. Nail techs mollycoddle digits, and waxing techs leave skinscapes feeling smooth. To cleanse the body's insides, acupuncturists release clients' toxins; massage therapists reduce stress; and weight-loss experts dispense advice on how to shed pounds into thin air rather than onto the couch.
Skin D' Amour supplements its salon and spa services with a modest lineup of fitness classes. The center's squad of instructors lead group classes in tai chi, yoga meditation, Zumba, and more to help participants maintain their look and feel through consistent, healthy habits.
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.
Originally located in New York, Yuva Threading Salon has expanded to a fourth location in Anaheim with a service menu that blends classic South Asian beauty techniques and modern Western traditions. During a Brazilian wax, a professional technician utilizes essential oils and waxes naturally derived from plants and antique televisions to leave the skin completely bare and velvety smooth. The salon maintains a no-double-dipping policy to ensure sanitary waxing services. Alternatively, eyebrow threading—a centuries-old hair-removal technique developed in South Asia—involves a twisted thread being pulled along the skin to lift hairs from their roots in a quick, precise, and relatively painless method that bestows brows with a beautiful arch and no cowlicks.
Evolve Salon and Style Lounge's owner, Tiffany Walker, will tell you that she was raised in the beauty industry. Her mom owned a salon, and at aged 7, Tiffany vowed that she would one day do the same. Today, she thrives at the helm of Evolve Salon and Style Lounge, a modern beauty haven whose bright and fun ambiance is brought to fruition with oversize mirrors, a black-and-white mural of Marilyn Monroe, and a sleek chandelier.
Within these voguish digs, Tiffany and her team consider clients' lifestyles, personalities, and styles before they cut, style, or color their hair. In addition to gussying up manes, the team provides services that run the gamut from airbrush tanning to 30- to 40-minute express services, such as mini facials and Shellac manicures. After appointments, clients can rummage through the salon's stock of professional products, including Aveda, Redken, and L'Oréal Professionnel.
The staff also helps transform brides and their wedding parties with bridal services that include hair, makeup, and eyelash applications. Because the staff has beautified women for hundreds of weddings, brides don't have to stress about the process. Stylists can arrive to do hair and makeup onsite at the chapel, hotel, or space station; alternately, bridal parties can relax while they enjoy breakfast and champagne in the salon.
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.
