Before even stepping inside a tanning bed, clients at Electric Beach Tanning can get a head-start on the perfect bronze. The experienced staff offers a skin consultation to determine the most appropriate tanning products for clients during tanning sessions. Alternatively, spray tans are available for those who wish to create sun-kissed skin without UV rays.
Reveal Skin and Body Care, lauded by Inland Empire magazine in its 2013 “Very Best of the I.E.” issue, invites guests to relax surrounded by soft lighting, earth tones, and soothing skin and hair services. Facial treatments cleanse pores, exfoliate skin, and help alleviate acne. Waxing services remove unwanted hair from areas such as lips, faces, arms, and legs, and stylists deftly provide women's, men's, and children's haircuts along with deep conditioning and highlights.
When he’s not advising area fire departments on emergency medicine, Dr. Phong Nguyen applies his expertise as medical director of the emergency department at Redlands Community Hospital to his position as director of Hospitality Medical Aesthetics. Nguyen and his team strive to marry in-office treatments—including noninvasive laser therapies, cosmetic injections, medically supervised weight loss, and levitation therapies—with at-home care regimens. By skillfully using products ranging from Obagi Medical to SkinCeuticals, the aesthetics crew claimed the 2011 Best Facial and Best Brow Shaping Runner-Up awards on CityVoter.
The aesthetic professionals at House of Beauty beautify bodies through threading, waxing, facials, henna designs, and a passel of other services. Threading, a House of Beauty specialty, uses the tension between two coiled strings to deftly extract unwanted hair, including the extra-fine strands that dodge waxing with eel-like reflexes—nimble aestheticians can reshape eyebrows ($8), a favorite thread-target, in five to seven minutes. Spa treatments such as the one-hour European facial ($50) can pamper peaked visages, and painted henna tattoos ($5+) shimmy up hands and feet to be-filigree appendages and add glamour to rock, paper, scissors tournaments. All locations except the Moreno Valley Mall and Temecula Mall locations cut and color hair, a useful service for pretending to be one's own evil twin.
The stylists, skin soothers, massage therapists, and nail and makeup artists at Lavish Salon and Day Spa have seen their fair share of media buzz. So has owner, master stylist, and senior Goldwell hair-color educator Samantha Murguia, whose color-correction skills found themselves under the spotlight on ModernSalon.com. In 2010, OCFamily.com editor Susan Belknapp blogged that not only was her Brazilian Blowout with Murguia "a relaxing, fast-moving treatment," but also that she found the result to be "fantastic." Murguia and her team have also been featured multiple times in Inland Empire Magazine and, in 2011, graced CBS’s list of LA’s Best Blow-Drys.
Perhaps the high praise is a result of the expertise with which Murguia's crew performs their services. Or perhaps it’s the fact that they keep a close eye on the latest youthful trends. The staff includes a teen blogger who has her finger on the pulse of the beauty industry, and the salon has been accepting donations of gently used dresses, shoes, and accessories to help girls attend the prom in style. They have even offered teen makeup tutorials that explain how to complement natural facial features and use a smartphone’s blush-administering app.
