At Teri Salon, nail technicians, cosmeticians, and lash specialists work together to keep clients' faces and nails looking their best. In signature eyebrow-threading services, expert staff define flattering new brow shapes by cleanly removing hairs. Other services include waxing, eyelash extensions, and permanent makeup.
The body's largest organ is the focus of all the treatments at Healthy Beautiful Skin & Tan, be it plagued with acne and clogged pores or just in need of a tan. Under the leadership of Aesthetician and Owner Sarah Damico, a team of skin experts busily cater to their clients' specifications. Spray-tan technicians deploy custom glows with airbrush tools full of distilled sunbeams, aestheticians exfoliate with peels and microdermabrasion treatments, and makeup artists tint brows. To remove body hair, the crew specializes in classic waxing treatments as well as sugaring, a process that uses an organic paste to gently remove hair without using strips.
Sugaring is an ancient hair-removal technique practiced widely in the Middle East, and at Skin So Sweet, owner Catherine Kooiman brings it to U.S. soil. In an interview with Coast magazine, Kooiman traced the practice to Cleopatra's day. At Skin So Sweet, beauty professionals use the all-natural substance to remove hair from any area of the body, yielding results that last significantly longer than shaving. True to Skin So Sweet's commitment to using natural ingredients, the company incorporates a signature line of products?free of paraben and laurel sulfates?into vitamin-packed facials and other beauty treatments.
The beauty professionals at Hair-Do and Threading Salon have a huge bag of tricks when it comes to beautifying and protecting skin. Blending henna-tree leaves and oil, they can create a henna ink that is applied to the skin in ornate patterns, where it turns a red or rust color. The staff can improve skin’s health, too, with meticulous and hygienic services including facials that unclog pores and brighten skin. They can remove unwanted hair by the roots by lassoing strands with 100% cotton thread or carefully employing warm wax.
The staff goes beyond skin to deliver high-end hair services that use Goldwell, Pravana, and Matrix hair color. Stylists can remove split ends or reverse perms. They can add dimension to flat hair with highlights and 3-D glasses. The staff also performs free ear piercing for customers who purchase earrings and want to add sparkle to their stylish look.
Katie Raber's Face & Body is a full-service spa geared towards beauty and wellness, and Jordan Granath does her part with luxury nail care services. In addition to nail art and gelish mani-pedis, she offers indulging treatments such as a shea butter pedicure. This treatment includes a foot soak and an exfoliation with crushed walnut, sugar, and shea butter, which renders the skin smooth and radiant. Jordan caps off the service with a foot and leg massage using warmed shea butter, which helps loosen muscles that may be tense from sitting at a desk or being somebody else's desk. This is just one example of the lengths Jordan goes to during her treatments to keep her clients pampered and well-groomed. She favors polishes from respected makers such as Essie and CND.
Passion Hair Spa serves as a one-stop salon and spa in Huntington Beach where clients can enjoy hair, nail, and skincare treatments in the same location. Stylist Monique streaks sun-kissed highlights into hair and cuts strands into chic new looks with assistance from Redken, Goldwell, and Colure products. Nail technician Mimi pampers clients with luxurious spa mani-pedis, buffing and glossing natural and artificial nails to perfection. The staff also performs soothing facials and permanent eyeliner applications, which can help save time normally spent applying makeup before work or before running into the background of a live news report.
