Upon studying a client's bone structure and overall look, Javan Salon & Supply's stylists reshape their hair with a personalized design and let their combined 20 years of experience do the talking. The salon’s services outfit customers with the perfect splash of hair color, unlike a paint-filled balloon fight. Along with their styling smarts, the Javan Salon & Supply team enriches each customer's appearance with a stock of haircare products from brand names such as Paul Mitchell and Sebastian.
The nail technicians at Broadmoor Nail Spa pamper nails, hands, and feet with an array of manicures and pedicures. Their acrylic and silk nails beautify hands while maintaining a classic, clean look. Along with nail care, the staff also beautifies clients with facials, waxing, and threading.
Beams of sunlight pour through the windows of Newport Hair Design, bouncing off ornate mirrors, peering through tall plants, and gliding across sleek, cherry-wood cabinets. The salon’s talented stylists mimic the modern aesthetic of their ornate styling stations as they shear inches from locks, light up hairstyles with gleaming colors, and level out frizzy locks with japanese-straightening and keratin treatments. After outmoded hairdos have been updated, manicurists take the beauty-boosting baton and run with it, trimming, filing and reshaping the nails on fingers and toes. Waxing technicians complete top-to-bottom makeovers by removing hair from the face, limbs, and Brazilian regions, leaving the body as smooth as a figure-skating saxophonist.
Inside KE Salon, nail technician Gabriella Barrese meticulously grooms fingers and toes with manicures and pedicures. She begins each treatment by trimming cuticles and plying skin with hydrating Salt of the Earth lotions. From there, Gabriella files nails and brushes on traditional or long-lasting gel polish. Gabriella also performs pedicures that remove calluses and moisturize feet, and she can follow up treatments by painting nails.
The Spa Gregorie team won Spa Finder’s Reader’s Choice award for Best Day Spa of 2011 for rejuvenating skin with Spa Gregorie's botanically enriched product line. Steps away from the spa's tranquil hair salon, Arcona formulas play a central role in the spa's 18 facial treatments while massage clients benefit from fluffy robes and a eucalyptus steam room. But the staff's dedication to well-being doesn't stop with the clients—contributions to the Make a Wish Foundation and multiple cancer research organizations echo this allegiance to communal prosperity, and any nonprofit group or charitable organization may use the Del Mar spa's conference room for free.
In 2011, the International SPA Association honored Spa Gregorie's CEO Angela Cortright with the Dedicated Contributor of the Year award. The press release cites her commitment to well-being and public service beyond her three eucalyptus-scented spas and reveals her favorite quote to be Muhammad Ali's maxim, “Service to others is the rent we pay for our room here on Earth.” This attitude has earned the company an avalanche of awards, which document the good works of its expert aestheticians, hair designers, and massage therapists.
