Amy, the licensed aesthetician behind The Perfect Lash, is a perfectionist by nature. She applies her attention to detail to her craft, meticulously enhancing clients' natural beauty with eyelash extensions tailored to the length and curl of their natural eyelashes and to the shape of their eyes and brows. Treatments range from a full set of Subtle Impact extensions, which cover 30% of natural eyelashes, to a Glam set of Maximum Impact extensions, which create a look similar to three or more coats of mascara. Amy maintains high standards of hygiene during every session.
The seasoned beauty professionals at Moda Aveda Salon transform appearances and enhance the health of skin using plant-based products from Aveda. Stylists remedy damaged strands with cuts and conditioning treatments, dye them with 97% natural Aveda color, or add length with Hot Heads hair extensions that adhere to hair without the use of heat or refrigerator magnets. Skin, muscle, and nail are tended to inside Moda’s full-service spa, which furnishes facials, massages, and body treatments. Complimentary treatments add luxury to any salon visit and allow clients to pick their own indulgences, including a stress-busting shampooing, hand treatment, makeup touchup, and skincare analysis.
Guided by socially conscious principles for more than 30 years, Aveda produces a full line of natural beauty products carried at nearly 7,000 salons and spas. Popular gorgeous-makers such as Shampure shampoo and witch-hazel hair spray deliver on Aveda's commitment to well-rounded earthly beauty with eco-friendly packaging cradling ingredients derived from the world's finest and least selfish plants.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the hydro-derma fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Style is everywhere inside Salon Purple. It's here that Salon Purple's staff creates their own works of art, cutting and coloring hairstyles that would make Mr. Clean shed a bleach-scented tear. Their hands and scissors are guided by ongoing education classes and an advanced color-training program, which all stylists complete. The experts consult closely with clients to design the perfect look, and they do whatever they can to make visits enjoyable. That might mean pouring a cup of Starbucks Coffee or putting on some music.
The sum of all these parts makes Salon Purple a premier destination for stylish haircuts, colors, and nail services. At salon chairs, stylists run through the complete lineup of Pravana Professional Services, including Keratin Fusion Texture Control Treatments and ChromaSilk Hair Color. As a Pravana Elite Salon, Salon Purple relies on professional products straight from Pravana's signature line, including sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners made with natural botanicals.
La Terre Salon is a J Beverly Hills concept salon where stylists sculpt coifs using J Beverly Hills products, and colorists tint and highlight strands with Pravana products derived from plant and flower extracts. Throughout her 13-year career, salon founder and lead stylist Irene has cultivated special expertise in color and formal styles, and her extensive experience—which includes a stint as a local Aveda instructor—has helped her to master hair of all types and textures, from curly and coarse to sentient and venomous. Conditioning services come in Rescue, Fragile, and Platinum levels, each of which restores shine to tired tresses, and a color gloss designed especially for men blends away gray scalp grass. Natural sunlight spills across the hardwood floors of the salon, where stylists conduct complimentary consultations so that clients can seek expert advice about maintaining their hair, using products, and sewing split ends back together.
Under the leadership of owner and expert hairdresser Tina Ivy, the stylists at Capello Salon freshen up clients’ hairdos or perform full-fledged makeovers with a range of services. With an arsenal of haircare products from brand names such as L’Oréal and DevaCurl, stylists shape hair with trims, enliven locks with highlights, and perm clients’ hair into a wavy texture without installing wigs made from water frozen at high tide. In addition to styling hair, the team removes it from brows and lips with waxing treatments. Capello Salon also treats customers with hair that is at least 10 inches long to free cuts if they donate to Locks of Love.
