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.
Hairstylist Elizabeth Jacobs expertly attaches hair extensions with a choice of tape or microbeads, creating a natural look with added length and volume. Her versatility also extends to hair's hue and texture. She can paint in sun-kissed highlights or an ombre wash, and she's certified to tame frizz and smooth curls with Brazilian blowouts.
Adore Salon's decor evokes a sumptuous chocolate bar with vanilla- and caramel-hued walls and floors the color of rich hot cocoa. Amid these warm accents, skilled aestheticians pamper the body from scalp to toe. Clients can request a specialty haircut with highlights and a colorful mani-pedi, or they can cultivate a sun-kissed glow in a private tanning room. The salon also employs a licensed massage therapist who dismantles muscle knots during relaxing bodywork sessions.
Aveda Mia Salon Spa employs stylists highly trained in haircuts, extensions, and coloring services. The spa half of the business offers body waxing, skincare treatments, and massages. And whether it's a stylist coifing an intricate updo or an aesthetician battling signs of aging with a Green Science facial, the salon and spa's team members always use products from Aveda's plant-based line.
Zebra-striped chairs, black-and-white ottomans, and lights reminiscent of bursting stars decorate Salon Bloom's waiting area, where guests soak up inspiration for 'dos performed by savvy stylists who wield Aveda and Bumble and bumble. products. Led by Kristi Marshall and Judy Olmstead, Salon Bloom's team cuts, colors, and coifs tresses as guests relax in plush leather seats. A pink-velvet bar serves as a color-processing station, letting clients read style magazines or share tips for styling hair and supercharging a blow-dryer motor with nitrous.
