Skilled stylist Ginger Kinison deftly manipulates strands with high-end products from Redken and Enjoy. Clients may also dip their toes in the salon's other beautifying services, which range from nail care and waxing to tanning and permanent-makeup sessions.
Lookfine Threading and Beauty Salon's Upland beauty professionals vanquish blemishes with contemporary techniques, including electrical microcurrent treatments and diamond-tip microdermabrasion, as well as a passion for threading, the ancient art of sculpting eyebrows into shapely arches with a cotton strand. Meanwhile, the graceful curlicues and camouflaged exam answers characteristic of henna tattoos temporarily infuse complexions with a fresh aesthetic.
Even while attending cosmetology school, Devin Graciano could command a room. She did so by teaching hair-extension techniques, demonstrating a flair for education that would later see her instructing at the Toni&Guy Academy in Santa Monica. Devin is equally skilled when it comes to working with clients. From behind her chair at The Salon at Allure, she arranges hair into sweeping updos, alters hues, and creates flattering styles.
Gina has been beautifying clients since 1999, and has built up a loyal clientele with her attention to detail and her wide range of skincare services. To help complexions glow their brightest, Gina relies on Dermalogica products and advanced techniques such as oxygen infusion treatments and microdermabrasion. Each of her treatments zeroes in on a specific issue, whether that's signs of aging, acne, or inflammation. But Gina is an expert in more than facials. She also tints and perms brows and lashes, waxes away unwanted hair, and meticulously applies permanent makeup, imbuing skin with pigment that shaves time off morning routines and prevents the deforestation of lipstick fields.
At Vendesi Beauty & Wellness Center, individually tailored facials cater to a wide range of skin concerns, treating faces in need of firming, hydrating, exfoliating, and more. The expansive skincare menu also includes microdermabrasion, back exfoliating treatments, and vitamin-C-infused exfoliation. But this beauty and wellness center offers much more than just skincare: other services include massages, body wraps, and spray tanning, to name a few.
