Freesia president and owner Shannon McCall Ullrich has an eye for beauty. She began her career in the fashion and modeling industry in 2001, opening a makeup studio that gained the attention of not only clients, but also publications and media outlets such as Allure magazine and Daily Candy. She then set her sights on beautifying spaces by designing floral arrangements and event decor crafted with fresh, in-season flowers. Her designs pair vibrant flowers of all varieties with green accents, California wines, and fun gifts, creating dazzling displays that show loved ones you care and neighbors that you're truly sorry for sleeping on their porch.
Dr. Raymond Frye kindles his passion for beautiful smiles by developing convenient at-home pearl-polishing devices to forge dentist-chair results. His ultrasonic toothbrush invigorates morning routines by scrubbing teeth at the speed of 30,000 dynamic strokes per minute. A built-in alert sounds every 30 seconds, letting brushers know to switch areas and reward themselves with a piece of saltwater taffy, before a two-minute timer signals the end of cleaning. For immediate enhancement, regimens such as the Icing 30 Carat system, JägerWhite gel, and Shazzam White gel brighten beams with varying strengths of carbamide peroxide, eschewing the expense and hassle of in-office treatments. Specialized whitening trays, which shape to fit the mouth in an easy at-home molding session, contour to the gum line to keep the whitening solution focused on its pearly objectives, never veering off to burnish marble statues or someone else’s teeth.
Modeled after traditional Korean spas, King Spa and Sauna houses nine distinct therapy rooms, each of which specializes in treating a different form of ailment or anxiety. The Charcoal room lines its walls with antibacterial briquettes, which can alleviate conditions such as eczema and undercooked pork sausage. The domed sauna in the Fire Sudatorium encircles entrants in the room's dry-heat and oak-tree aromatherapy, whereas the low temperature of the Ice room encourages blood flow to the chilled parts of the body. In the heated Base Rock room, slabs of siraka stone deploy infrared rays into prostrate patrons, inciting increased circulation and lymphatic drainage during a process that, like most mixed-martial-arts careers, typically doesn't last longer than two 15-minute sessions.
A fountain’s quiet bubbling welcomes patrons into the lounge of Reflexions Spa, which specializes in massage, facials, nail services, and body wraps. Further in, private treatment rooms in earthen hues host nine massage options that include aromatherapy and prenatal techniques. For those with more anterior concerns, a range of facial options addresses issues such as sun damage, aging, oil, acne, and too many pie-eating tournaments. Manicures and pedicures shape and buff nails and offer the options of paraffin-wax treatments and long-lasting OPI gel lacquer or CND Shellac polish. Waxing specialists are also on hand to evict unwanted hair from upper arms, legs, and faces.
