A head stylist with more than 30 years of experience in the beauty industry leads a team of beauty specialists in her sunny Orange County salon. Stylists update clients' colors and cuts, or groom body hair with wax, cotton threads, or garden shears. Aestheticians tackle skin issues related to age during facials, and highlight natural beauty with airbrush makeup and bronzer.
In addition to beautifying services, workshop classes educate industry newcomers and insiders, culminating in a student fashion show.

Touch of Essence Orange County wants to help guests escape from their hectic lives, even if it's only for 30- or 60-minutes. Massage therapists help loosen kinks and erase worries with Swedish, deep-tissue, and aromatherapy massages. They also offer expecting mothers a chance to relax with prenatal massages. On the therapeutic side of things, the team offers sports and neuromuscular massages, as well as skinny wraps that encourage detoxification to help clients slim down and squeeze into the old seatbelt they wore to prom.
It’s at the midpoint of a session at Luscious Lashes that clients can most see the difference. One eye’s worth of lashes are strikingly longer and more voluminous with a full set of synthetic lashes bonded to each natural lash. Luscious Lashes’ fleet of licensed aestheticians and certified specialists painstakingly adheres the silky lashes, leaving clients looking freshly made-up without the use of mascara. The lashes shed when natural ones do, giving the extensions about a three-week lifespan before they take to the wind like a baby bird.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Inside the Ayres Hotel and Spa in Mission Viejo, Athena Spa is a calming oasis with large and spacious cream-colored rooms. The full-service spa upgrades traditional spa treatments with deluxe add-ons. Facials, for example, intensify with the addition of freeze-dried seaweed compresses or the rejuvenating extracts of caviar and pearls. The contents of body wraps appear to be plucked from a five-star restaurant, with ingredients such as crème fraîche, papaya, pineapple-salt mousse, and pomegranate. In their signature massage, therapists don’t restrict customers to a single style of touch, but combine several modalities, including Swedish, shiatsu, deep tissue, and the grizzly-bear womp. In addition to these aesthetic treatments, an onsite yoga studio invites customers to relax from the inside out.
