"Technique is everything," says Tricia Hetherington, licensed esthetician and owner of The Pretty Kitty, a chain of full-service waxing boutiques specializing in bare-all Brazilians. Tricia, who?s been profiled in Luxury Las Vegas and several additional press outlets, personally trains each staff member in her proprietary 10- to 15-minute hair-removal method, which employs high-quality soft wax that?s formulated for delicate flesh and minimizes pain. Her estheticians never double dip into the wax pot, reaching for a fresh stick with every application of the warm substance and leaving only a thin landing strip or functional tarmac in its wake. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.
The aesthetic professionals at House of Beauty beautify bodies through threading, waxing, facials, henna designs, and a passel of other services. Threading, a House of Beauty specialty, uses the tension between two coiled strings to deftly extract unwanted hair, including the extra-fine strands that dodge waxing with eel-like reflexes—nimble aestheticians can reshape eyebrows ($8), a favorite thread-target, in five to seven minutes. Spa treatments such as the one-hour European facial ($50) can pamper peaked visages, and painted henna tattoos ($5+) shimmy up hands and feet to be-filigree appendages and add glamour to rock, paper, scissors tournaments. All locations except the Moreno Valley Mall and Temecula Mall locations cut and color hair, a useful service for pretending to be one's own evil twin.
When it comes to beauty treatments, O'Leisure Hair Design does a little bit of everything. Licensed stylists here use AG Hair Products and perform chic haircuts and keratin smoothing treatments, and spa treatments such as hair removal, eyelash extensions, and nail services are also available. You can get even eyebrows with a threading session, too, or renew your skin and up your pH levels with an ultra-hydrating facial. There are private spa rooms for all waxing, massages, and facials.
Hairapy Studios' founder joined the words hair and therapy as homage to the business's specialty services: hair styling, lash extensions, threading, and waxing. Guests can also solicit one of the salon's skilled aestheticians for a specialty makeup application.
