Floor-to-ceiling windows bathe The Doll House Hair Salon in natural light, illuminating the team of stylists as they make over clients. Full-length mirrors reflect each step of the transformation as the beauty experts maneuver around cushy black salon chairs and snip strands into trendy, classic, or elegant 'dos. For extra attention, they employ Paul Mitchell products to color strands and administer deep-conditioning treatments that infuse hair with the strength of professional wrestler's ponytail.
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.
The magic number is 9,600 for Focus Body Spa owner and registered nurse Suguna Jaikumar, who has assisted and consulted on that many surgeries over the last decade. Since then, Suguna has transitioned from intensive care and surgical units to the more serene atmosphere of her med spa, where she and her team consult with women and men regarding their aesthetic treatment options. The spa's options range from chemical peels and permanent makeup to colon hydrotherapy and henna design. Focus Body Spa is outfitted with advanced equipment, including lasers to remove unsightly veins, medical injections to plump wrinkles, and photofacials to erase sun spots that keep spelling out your birth year on your forehead.
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.
True to its name, Tat2BeGone helps rid the skin of unwanted ink. Erasing a bad choice is the team's passion, and advanced laser equipment enables the staff to oust the tattoos or permanent face paint as completely as possible. The clinic's lasers also allow the staff to ease hair growth, lessen the appearance of acne scarring, and rejuvenate depleted skin cells.
