Named after the colorful bracelets that jangle on the wrists of many Indian women, Ruby’s Bangles gives its patrons an opportunity to partake in ancient Eastern beauty rituals. In the spa, aestheticians use eyebrow threading techniques inspired by Egyptian beauty rituals to remove unwanted hair. Skilled henna artists can transform hands and feet with dramatic plant-ink designs. The store's boutique boasts a wide selection of Indian-inspired jewelry, including bindis, necklaces, bangles, and hip chains for belly dancing or keeping prank-prone jeans from running away.
Following complimentary consultations, the team at Evans & Co. Salon transforms hairstyles with precise color treatments, using a variety of quality products including Pureology, Redken, and Bare Escentuals. Though they specialize in color and highlights, the team also offers special-occasion styling, blowouts, and microdermabrasion treatments.
International Day Spa has been supplying Redlands-area pamperistas with relaxing and beautifying treatments for more than 21 years. In the Massage à Trois service, couples take turns receiving one-hour Swedish/American massages. The partner not currently receiving the massage is encouraged to participate with the therapist, learning techniques that can be used at home or at stressful youth soccer games. After both partners have received their massage, couples are invited to relax in the Turkish steam room, attacking their already weakened stress levels with an assault of vapors and withering criticism. Solo spa goers can opt instead to partake of the spa’s other services, including hot-stone massage ($95+), facials (generally $45–$235), and hydrotherapy services, such as aromatherapy body buffing or salt glow with a relaxing Vichy shower ($55).
Located inside Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio, Alec Ian Day Spa immediately sets clients at ease with plants, curtains, and decorative plates hung on the wall that somehow seem more practical than decorative crock pots. Alec Ian's service menu spans nearly the entire beautification spectrum. From facials to manicures, aestheticians spruce up exteriors in a comfortable spa setting. Inside a private massage room, therapists treat clients to one of seven different types of massages as a way to relax after a long day. Additionally, Alec Ian offers up med-spa services such as Botox, Dysport, and Restylane fillers.
