Visions Salon and Spa's owner Shirley Manulak arrives at work each day determined to fulfill her customers’ cosmetic needs. “We just wanted to have a relaxing, friendly atmosphere. We want to shampoo away some of your stress,” she told Y.C. Orozco of the Pasadena Citizen. Armed with 35 years of experience as a cosmetology instructor and a skilled staff, her salon offers an array of aesthetic services, including manicures, pedicures, and hairstyling in a salon renovated after Manulak bought it two years ago. Like jazz bands that are serious about their craft, the staff steam cleans all of their instruments with autoclaves and medical-grade disinfectant.
At t'nt Hair & Spa, beauty experts pamper clients with haircare and spa services. Along with haircuts and coloring treatments, the stylists also transform hair with sew-in or glue-in extensions. Massage-therapy options help alleviate stress, and facials freshen up complexions by addressing individual skincare concerns. Makeup applications, eyelash extensions, and teeth-whitening services are also available to amplify clients' new looks.
Harmony Wellness & Spa exudes tranquility from the moment guests walk through its doors. Soothing scents waft throughout the cool-toned space that's accented by orchids and other potted plants, setting the stage for a host of serene beauty and wellness services.
Dermalogica skincare treatments include an exfoliating botanical peel and facials enhanced by firming seaweed and anti-aging caviar masks. Clients can also indulge in mani-pedis with skin-softening paraffin wraps and invigorating sugar scrubs, as well as shellac polish, which stays chip-free for up to 14 days no matter how many times they run their fingers through a coworker's luxurious hair.
Harmony Wellness & Spa offers detoxifying programs in various lengths, too. For 7, 14, or 21 days, patrons use NutriClean cleansing systems in conjunction with BioSlimming wraps to rid their bodies of impurities.
Champa's Creations Day Spa combines the relaxing arts of hair-, nail-, and skincare under one roof. In addition to shearing overgrown strands, stylists boost shine with house-made conditioning treatments customized to individual hair type, add luminous full or partial highlights, and iron out curly tops with thermal reconditioning treatments. The salon’s nail technicians stay equally busy, primping fingers and toes before decorating cuticles with classic paint jobs, artificial nails, or shellac gel that lasts up to two weeks without chipping or turning hands invisible. Meanwhile, aestheticians man private rooms, where they administer facials that target acne hotspots or collagen treatments designed to spur cellular regeneration. Aside from showcasing outer beauty, the crew also coaxes out internal relaxation with soothing Swedish and aromatherapy massages and indulgent body wraps.
Arena Salon and Day Spa?s experienced staff of patient and dedicated European-trained stylists expertly beautifies exteriors with customized aesthetic treatments. Arena?s modern deco decor greets guests as they recline in salon chairs to receive a transformative cut, color, and style. Other patrons sink into plush treatment beds as aestheticians rejuvenate epidermises with microdermabrasions and facials. A sea-salt body polish exfoliates skin and a Vichy shower treatment showers guests with warm water, which aims to stimulate immune systems before bodies are dried by the gentle flapping of fairy wings as they flutter about the salon. Ensuring clients stay in tip-top shape at all times, Arena is open seven days a week and offers lunchtime spa appointments.
Frazzled hair surrenders to the pampering fingers of Euro International Salon's stylists. The menu flaunts a full slate of services, from those rendered by relaxing shampoos and shears to those performed with color. Amiable stylists manufacture curls with perms and outwit native frizz with deep conditioning. Like pro basketball players, the salon staff demonstrates skill atop hardwood floors in front of no fewer than 10 cheerleaders, and complimentary refreshments lend each visit a feel of warm hospitality. Flat-screen TVs, chandeliers, ornate rugs, and high ceilings under which several plants grow further encourage clients to return each time their hair refuses to stay the same length.
