Irene Rubino harnesses more than a decade of experience when beautifying clients. From among her services, she frames eyes with synthetic eyelash extensions and conjures flattering hues with spray tans. Irene also diminishes signs of aging and sun damage with diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands and glycolic peels.
As hair maestros overhaul scalps, April Michelle works hard putting the finishing touches on new looks with natural-looking eyelash extensions by Luscious Lashes. As she meticulously affixes the synthetic strands one by one to existing lashes, the rest of the salon bustles with the lively din of stylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians.
The salon itself is as vibrant and modish as its staff. It features an eye-grabbing blend of rustic and modern flourishes, including a chain-hung distressed metal sign, partially exposed brick-wall accents, chic light fixtures, and a refreshment station featuring coffee and wine.
Master stylist Janine Hamilton draws from her 26 years of experience to update hairstyles with cuts, colors, and up-dos. She also places weaves and creates longer, thicker hair with hair extensions. At Beyond The Fringe OC, she works alongside other beauty professionals who cut hair into classic bobs and asymmetrical layers, color hair with natural-looking highlights or bright blues and reds, and deep condition damaged strands.
18/8 Fine Men's Salon (formerly Converge Salon) offers a wide slate of barbering services for men. The executive barber cut?a classic way to get dapper and feel pampered?includes a neck and shoulder massage, a hot towel finish, and an optional sleeper hold from a retired wrestler. The grey blending treatments help conceal pesky grey hairs. Clients can enjoy complimentary beverages as they await their turn in the chair, too.
Kenneth Brown Salons feels as much like a spacious artist's loft as a salon, with super-high ceilings, low chandeliers, and modern hanging lights that look like downturned wine glasses. Amid these warm accents, skilled stylist Korrie Medina chisels out voluminous layers and decorates with custom color highlights. Clients may also solicit the salon for a swift brow wax or one-on-one makeup consultation.
