In the spirit of an Old-World apothecary, Remedy Hair Shoppe heals the spirit with its many beautification services. Vintage hand mirrors and jugs sit atop wood cabinets that moonlight as snazzy antiques. While eyes peruse the decor, the salon's stylists deftly manipulate hair, administering flattering layers and confident highlights. Guests may also request a private hair and makeup consultation for an upcoming wedding or underwater prom.
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.
Ana Threading’s skilled technicians harness the ancient practice of threading to remove unwanted hair from eyebrows, chins, and other areas with speed and precision. Their cotton threads remove hair from the follicle for longer-lasting smoothness, all without unnecessarily irritating sensitive skin, as waxing can do, or causing discoloration, as fruit punch can do. The salon also offers waxing and henna tattoos.
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.
The depilation experts at Sameera Eyebrow Threading, a salon owned by husband-and-wife team Samir and Meera, specialize in beautifying faces through the middle eastern method of threading. By twisting doubled cotton filaments in quick, precise flicks, they uproot stray hairs to create graceful arches along brow lines or sleek racing stripes down calves. This technique can also be used to de-fuzz upper lips and cheeks. For the rest of the body, they rely on wax to banish stubble and render skin baby smooth. Beyond hair removal, the salon caters to many other aesthetic needs with a menu of services that includes haircuts and color treatments, facials, bridal makeup, henna art, and teeth whitening.
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.
