Complimentary coffee, cold beverages, and a kids lounge playroom further enhance the relaxing atmosphere at Lounge Salon. While kids busy themselves in the playroom, highly trained stylists treat parents to an expansive menu of services that range from body and hair treatments to nails, makeup, and waxing. Stylists tame locks with custom men’s and women’s haircuts tailored to each client’s look. They also specialize in services that range from formal hair updos and curls to highlights, smoothing treatments, and color correction.
When it comes to beauty treatments, O'Leisure Hair Design does a little bit of everything. Licensed stylists here use AG Hair Products and perform chic haircuts and keratin smoothing treatments, and spa treatments such as hair removal, eyelash extensions, and nail services are also available. You can get even eyebrows with a threading session, too, or renew your skin and up your pH levels with an ultra-hydrating facial. There are private spa rooms for all waxing, massages, and facials.
Gracy, a native Brazilian, was born with what her clients call “a green thumb for hair.” After immigrating to the United States, she earned her cosmetology license in New York and spent several years working in upscale salons around the city. Today, she lives and works in sunny San Diego where she owns Gracy International Hair Design, a full-service salon. Like Gracy, the salon has a warm, laid-back vibe with colorful rugs, painted furniture, and lots of potted plants. In the front, a small boutique sells jewelry made in Afghanistan, hand-painted bikinis, and purses made from recycled, organic materials.
Gracy and her all-female team perform a range of hair services using products from Lanza, L’Oreal Professionnel, and Glo Essentials that are designed to improve hair’s health. She herself specializes in Beox Brazilian keratin hair treatments, which help prevent hair from frizzing and progressively smooth and improve the quality of hair. She’s been performing these treatments for more than 10 years.
Gone are the days where the only choices for polish were bland, primary colors. Gone are days where nails were guaranteed to chip. Gone are the days where a manicure meant dull, lifeless, and flat designs, and gone are the days when days didn't go away. The staff at Diva Nails & Spa is part of a new breed, one that has fully embraced a more modern approach to manicures and pedicures. For them, nail care is a highly creative endeavor. They see fingers become a palette as they paint images such as cupcakes, ladybugs, and penguins on nails. Their use of 3D nails helps clients stand out of from the crowd. Diva's techs also happily render basic nail services, and offer treatments like gel manicures, pink and white nails, and eyebrow waxing.
The certified technicians of Poshe' Skincare Salon customize each aesthetic service—from natural-nail treatments to full-body waxing—to their clients' individual traits as they dole out time-honored beauty advice. Armed with Dermalogica and Jan Marini Skin Research products, aestheticians help fend off impurities and aging with eight facials, each of which includes exfoliation, a nourishing mask, and hydration in addition to adding invigorating extras such as papaya enzymes, alpha hydroxy acids, or mineral sea salts. To further polish bodily surfaces, microdermabrasion liberates faces, necks, and upper bodies of dead skin cells to reveal fresher complexions. Permanent makeup decks eyelids, brows, or lips with durable daubs of micropigmentation, creating the appearance of natural-looking cosmetics sans the smudging, smearing, or telltale kiss marks on handsome department-store mannequins.
