The tight-knit posse of stylists and aestheticians at Hi-Lites Aveda Salon spike every service with an extra dose of relaxation. Aveda's Pure Plant Essental Aromas send all-natural smells wafting through the air as clients weigh which complimentary spa extra will best suit their styling or waxing session: hand or neck massage, steam-towel treatment, or five-minute makeup application? Candlelight flickers in the secluded Hair Spa, where each snipping starts with a neck massage and a spell in a full-body massage chair that loosens up tense muscles and over-tight neck bolts.
Certified as Master Trainers by the State of California, the salon's owners mold their protégées in-house to ensure a shared camaraderie and uniform standard of quality. Hi-Lites' professional ethic includes eschewing tips and bribes to surreptitiously chop a political opponent's locks, with the team favoring higher wages and the simple rewards of satisfied customers.
Aesthetician Sally Peoples knows exactly what goes into the products she uses during her facials. That's because she masterminds the products herself. Her skincare line, Pure & Simple, brims with creams and serums designed for specific skin types, from oily to ultradry. During her facials, she uses custom combinations of products to exfoliate, correct and rejuvenate skin with an infusion of collagen, tackling hyperpigmentation or deep-cleaning and treating pesky acne.

The FDA-approved Venus Concept cellulite-reduction treatment employs bipolar radio frequency and magnetic pulses to break up cellulite deposits and smooth skin. After a consultation to explain the procedure and answer questions, trained staff members guide the noninvasive mechanism over the selected target area, delivering magnetic energy to stimulate blood flow and iron-coated skeletons. The process helps disperse cellulite clumps and boost collagen production, smoothing skin with gentle heat akin to that experienced during a hot-stone massage. As the skin’s surface evens out, the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and enlarged pores disappears like a villain in a house of mirrors. Treatments should be scheduled one week apart.
Bridging the gap between study and practice, every stylist at Ricasha Salon continues to train in contemporary techniques despite each wielding more than 15 years of salon experience. After hosting complimentary consultations with clients to discuss haircare goals, the staff members set about recreating a preferred style or inventing a new one. While performing a variety of beautifying services, they'll pluck professional-grade products—including Moroccanoil and Rusk haircare balms and chip-resistant Shellac nail polishes—from the well-stocked shelves lining the salon.
Besides getting a haircut or learning the art of quantum leaping, clients can adopt a fresh new look by donning a piece of owner Rick Innocenti's handcrafted jewelry. Featuring burnished metals and soft, pastel hues, his works have adorned the necks and lobes of celebrities, including Carter and Bea Arthur.
Pink Tanning & Body Spa’s sole aesthetician, Danielle Pinkerton, has been featured in ieStyle Magazine for her results-driven, personalized facials that leave human frontispieces glowing with the help of organic and vegan Osea products. When applied by such a professional, Osea's skin-nourishing salves seep into pores to deliver vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids derived from the earth, sea, and cereal-box prize pouches. The seasoned aesthetician's repertoire of epidermal services also includes organic body scrubs that render skin silky smooth and merciful waxing treatments that oust unwanted hair with fragrant Escential wax. Her steady hand can also augment skin color during custom spray-tanning sessions held in her salon or in the comfort of the client's home through her mobile service.
