The magic number is 9,600 for Focus Body Spa owner and registered nurse Suguna Jaikumar, who has assisted and consulted on that many surgeries over the last decade. Since then, Suguna has transitioned from intensive care and surgical units to the more serene atmosphere of her med spa, where she and her team consult with women and men regarding their aesthetic treatment options. The spa's options range from chemical peels and permanent makeup to colon hydrotherapy and henna design. Focus Body Spa is outfitted with advanced equipment, including lasers to remove unsightly veins, medical injections to plump wrinkles, and photofacials to erase sun spots that keep spelling out your birth year on your forehead.
The hair-pampering pros at The Haircutters have trimmed locks and transformed outmoded manes for more than a quarter of a century. Unlike many salons, in which shampooing is a separate service, the team starts off every haircut and style by treating scalps to suds with handfuls of professional products from top brands such as Biolage and American Crew.
Apart from the signature shampoo-and-cuts, the staff at The Haircutters also offers color and texturizing services. Redken color camp for men gets hombres’ heads looking good, and spiral perms cascade with curls. Devoted to client convenience, The Haircutters welcomes walk-ins seven days a week.
Dedicated to creating a lively and entertaining workout environment, The Doll House Beauty Lounge's expert instructors lead invigorating fitness classes designed to help ladies tone their muscles through dance, yoga, or intensive boot-camp regimens. They strive to equip empowered dancers with lean, toned upper-body muscles during pole-fitness classes, and help students torch calories in hip-swiveling Zumba and salsa classes. To accommodate women of all skill levels and interests, they speckle their schedule with a wide variety of classes throughout the week.
Mon Esprit Aveda's talented team of shear geniuses renovates scalp sheaths and designs new and improved ’dos with a range of services. The pampering process commences with a signature Aveda massage of the scalp, neck, shoulders, arms, and hands, and follows with an expert cut tailored to the client's hair type, personality, and wind tunnel-frequenting habits. Next, stylists apply a nourishing deep-conditioning treatment, appropriate for both oily and dry locks, before blowing out strands for a sleek finish.
At Angel's Nails, experienced nail technicians envelop fingertips and toes in a cocoon of relaxation with lavish manicures and pedicures. During the 30-minute manicure, techs buff away rough edges, residual polish, and clingy finger puppets with a gentle soak, trim, and polish. An exfoliating lotion then sloughs away dead skin, leaving behind a silky dermal covering.
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.
