The Frame is about as far from the tiled floors and florescent lighting of chain hair salons as you can get. Located in Chino Hills, this upscale boutique hair studio is intimate and luxurious, with soaring ceilings, dripping crystal chandeliers, and dark hardwood floors. For lounging before and after appointments, cushy couches are set along the pale blue and gray walls adorned with black lacquered, intricately-framed mirrors and prints. When clients are ready for their service, they settle into black leather chairs at the shampoo station, and The Frame's licensed stylists go to work. Specializing in rich color services and fashion-forward cuts, the friendly Redken- and Sassoon-trained stylists work with each client, helping to determine the look that will most flatter their face and style. Additional services include Brazilian blowouts and sun-kissed highlights, as well as eyebrow shaping and professional makeup applications for recovering clowns.
Large, shimmering windows form the façades of each Vicara salon, granting glimpses of Aveda-trained stylists poring over clients' every hairdo detail. The sound of scissor clips and conversation, along with the fresh scents of naturally-derived Aveda products, permeate Vicara, where professionals renovate appearances with haircuts, tailored color sessions, retexturizing treatments, and extensions that add bulk and body to hair without adding whey protein. Aestheticians groom guises with skincare treatments, including facials and waxing. A choice of complimentary treats rides shotgun with all services and may include skincare consultations, an application of Pure-Fume natural scents, or a steaming cup of stress-relieving tea.
