Bello Lei Salon & Day Spa, Inc.'s owner and experienced stylist, Trisha Sehnert, assembles a team of dedicated beauty professionals to pamper patrons with an array of hair, nail, and skincare services. The spacious salon greets guests with a comfy waiting area, exposed brick walls, and a gallery featuring a rotating collection of paintings and photographs from local artists. As stylists craft custom hairdos in the main room, spa clients retreat to a cozy, private room, where aestheticians brighten skin with vivifying facials and remove unwanted felt from Muppets' heads, torsos, and wire rods with a full scale of waxing treatments.
At a private family practice led by board-certified physicians, Fallbrook Medical Center’s team strives to coalesce ultramodern treatments with compassion. Dr. Allen Houshiar and Dr. Alvaro Berrios helm a traditional medicinal branch where they treat children, adults, and the elderly and perform preventative exams. On the center’s skincare side, the staff specializes in medical-grade treatments that soften fine lines and wrinkles, stimulate collagen, and foster skin tone firmer than a hardcover copy of John Grisham's The Pelican Brief.
One part skincare boutique, one part spa, Spallure excels at keeping skin healthy and bodies beautiful. Moisturizers, cleansers, and scrubs from such brands as Bliss, Clarisonic, Kai, and Elemis line the shop's shelves, waiting for a shopper to scoop them up for at-home care or for a Spallure staffer to select them for use in an in-house spa treatment. These specialists polish clients from head to toe with full body waxing, facials, massages, and body scrubs dubbed with whimsical names, such as the fatgirlslim body treatment and the No Zit Sherlock facial. Meanwhile, spa packages for bridal parties, couples, and moms-to-be combine a number of luxuries into one blissful package, much like leaving a fancy hotel with a suitcase full of bathroom fixtures.
It’s no typical strip-mall salon. Salon Nouveau practically glows, its track lighting and twinkling chandeliers setting off the walls’ golden hues. Wooden tables, intricate area rugs, and a rustic, ornate beverage cart give the salon a rich, cozy feeling. The salon’s internationally trained stylists specialize in color correction and cutting.
Within the 25-year established Front Street Studios, deft stylist, Paula Sato brandishes the potent Brazilian Blowout formula to iron out waves and tame frizzy manes for up to 3 months. The 90-minute streamlining process kicks off with a quick shampoo and "South Pacific" sing-along before strands slink into a protective coating of the protein-packed serum. Next, the stylist diligently blow-dries and flat-irons locks, before rinsing and glazing a second and third time to marry hair to its new smooth, shiny demeanor and lock-out imminent frizzies. After a final gust of blow-dried air, headscapes receive a stylish pruning to highlight their newfound sleekness. Though heads may remain in their calmer state for up three months, patrons should use suitable aftercare products and avoid Van de Graaf generators for optimal results.
Amore Day Spa’s owner Kelly Kim spent years honing her craft by working as a licensed aesthetician and product specialist before opening her own day spa in 2011. Born and raised in South Korea, she spent the first eight years of her career traveling between her home country and Seattle, making her particularly well-suited to address the needs of other busy women who often forget to make time for themselves. Together with her staff, Kelly doles out relaxation in the form of everything from tailored hot-stone massages to whole-body steam treatments that leave skin feeling soft and polished with help from salt or sugar scrubs. She can also cut down morning makeup routines with permanent eyeliner or employ full-body waxing services to trim seconds off long commutes by playground slide.
