Sustainable, organic Aveda products play sidekick to the staff?s skills at Dosha Salon & Spa. The team offers a range of services, including their signature hair extensions and gel manicures. Chemical peels use cranberry and pomegranate enzymes to treat blemishes and fine lines on faces. Additionally, the staff offers Vitamin C and Vitamin B12 injections to help boost clients? overall wellness.
When it comes to solving dermal issues, Danielle's wand is a thing of magic. She gently drags it across faces to slough away the topmost layer of skin, smooth fine lines, and fade away discolorations. Her microdermabrasion treatments at Vendesi Beauty & Wellness Center also include relaxing shoulder, head, and horn massages.
Organic haircare is the foundation of Healthy Hair Bar & Wigs. Stylists use organic shampoos, conditioners, and styling products in each service and apply ammonia-free color. They even have their own hair-softening system, California Flow, that softens strands while maintaining hair health.
Guests searching for Essentials Day Spa and Salon will find it discretely nestled at the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains inside the DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont hotel. Calming music fills the air as staffers enhance clients' natural beauty in equally elegant rooms enhanced by rich, dark wood accents and ornate, gold-framed mirrors. Hair stylists and color specialists create new looks with products such as Redken and Pureology, and aestheticians exfoliate and hydrate skin during facials, pulling complexion-revitalizing tonics from the highly customizable Dermalogica line. Massage therapists ease muscle tension with four different modalities and reflexology treatments, and the team also soothes the nerves of clients hearing wedding bells or suffering from tinnitus with all-encompassing bridal packages.
While devoting countless hours of their creativity and skill to making human beings more beautiful, Essentials' staff also remains mindful of the health and beauty of both the environment and the local community. Day-to-day efforts include recycling all possible materials, recycling or donating old equipment, and using only biodegradable laundry soap. They frequently donate to local schools and charities, and collect hair for the Matter of Trust Foundation, which uses shed strands to help clean up oil spills and build toupees for balding walruses.
Tintura Salon owner Doris V. Rodriguez studied at the academies of three of the world's most esteemed haircare brands?Paul Mitchell, Bumble and bumble, Goldwell?and has traveled around the United States and Europe to hone her craft. As an instructor for Goldwell, she places a high premium on continuing education, having each of her salon's stylists complete a six-month cutting and styling course upon joining the team.
Color services are the team's specialty, though, and they use Goldwell formulas to create everything from golden highlights to emerald-green 'dos. But Tintura's stylists aren't just adept at applying color?they're also pros at taking it out with decolorizing treatments that return hair to its natural polka-dotted hue.
