Despite its name, Illusions of Beauty’s services deliver lasting results. From haircuts, weaves, and coloring services to nailcare, waxing, and cosmetics, the staff at Illusions of Beauty is equipped to help clients to enhance their natural beauty and boost confidence. Aestheticians use Dermalogica skincare products to cleanse and exfoliate faces in private rooms made deeply relaxing by the deafening sounds of quiet.

Working mere blocks from the Pacific Ocean, Six Degrees Salon and Spa’s team of stylists distills the sea’s natural beauty and calming influence into beauty treatments under the guidance of co-owners Joel and Frida Silva, authorities in haircare and skincare services, respectively. While stylists trim hair and wax errant fringe in the second floor’s open, hardwood-floored salon upstairs, licensed massage therapists knead out kinks and aestheticians unleash powerful facials and peels on blemishes in the downstairs spa and boutique. Armed with products from top-tier companies such as Obagi and Moroccanoil, the beautifiers render coifs and skin more healthy and radiant than a nutritionist's grocery list left in a running microwave.

The 4,880-square-foot facility hosts classes in lecture and lab rooms, workshop areas, and includes a student library, break room, and place to stash doll hair after it’s been removed from a sibling’s favorite Ken doll.
At Risque Beauty Lounge’s dry bar, stylists sometimes moisturize and blow dry hair before applying a Morrocanoil wearable treatment. Other times, they perform style triage, removing frizz with FDA-approved Brazilian Keratin treatments and adding length to strands with 100% human hair extensions. This is the kind of work Ashley Clark does every day. In addition to these styling treatments, she also removes dead ends with expert snips and covers unwanted grays with color services. Ashley works alongside a full staff of other beauty professionals, whose members beautify bods with applications of spray tans and airbrush makeup.
