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 he’s not advising area fire departments on emergency medicine, Dr. Phong Nguyen applies his expertise as medical director of the emergency department at Redlands Community Hospital to his position as director of Hospitality Medical Aesthetics. Nguyen and his team strive to marry in-office treatments—including noninvasive laser therapies, cosmetic injections, medically supervised weight loss, and levitation therapies—with at-home care regimens. By skillfully using products ranging from Obagi Medical to SkinCeuticals, the aesthetics crew claimed the 2011 Best Facial and Best Brow Shaping Runner-Up awards on CityVoter.
Reveal Skin and Body Care, lauded by Inland Empire magazine in its 2013 “Very Best of the I.E.” issue, invites guests to relax surrounded by soft lighting, earth tones, and soothing skin and hair services. Facial treatments cleanse pores, exfoliate skin, and help alleviate acne. Waxing services remove unwanted hair from areas such as lips, faces, arms, and legs, and stylists deftly provide women's, men's, and children's haircuts along with deep conditioning and highlights.
Dr. Ben Childers heads a team of expert aestheticians as they smooth skin and oust impurities with minimally invasive HydraFacial treatments. During the treatment, a gentle HydraFacial machine sweeps across the skin's surface, purging pores of oil and cheek gophers. Melding microdermabrasion and hydration, the treatment extracts impurities and adds moisture to the skin before fortifying facades with an antioxidant treatment. Visages emerge revitalized, with potential benefits including diminished fine lines and improvement in the appearance of skin conditions such as acne and hyperpigmentation. For optimal results, Sheer Beauty recommends undergoing the HydraFacial three to six times at six-week intervals and not coating your face in pollen and sticking your head in a beehive.
The seasoned beautifiers at Endless Styles Salon & Boutique pamper clients with a slew of styling and spa services. The spa's muscle mechanics perform gentle tendon tune-ups during their 50-minute Swedish massage. Sessions commence with a consultation, as the salon's massage therapists craft a custom treatment meant to address individual aches and pains gained after never-ending workweeks or jai alai tournaments. With adroit, aqueous motions, therapists knead tired brawn, untie tension knots, and melt the hearts of stoic stressors. Experienced hands skate over vast stretches of bodily geography, including the back, shoulders, and legs, applying pressure to improve circulation, evict toxins, and unlock dormant superpowers.
Monique Aguirre has her mother to thank for her career. It was while watching her mother style hair that Monique heard a calling to follow in her mother’s footsteps. After graduating from RCC Cosmetology School, she did just that, opening Couture Salon. She and her staff not only cut, color, and style hair; their services also include Brazilian blowouts and waxing.
