What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
The Osmosis medi-facials are customized for each clients skin conditions. Steam, warm towels, and a rejuvenating facial massage will help increase circulation and open the pores while replenishing the skin.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
Calm music, candles, and a heated massage table make the experience very relaxing.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a client?
I had a client who travels the world, gets facials regularly, and replied that my facial was the best by far, and it's more relaxing then a body massage.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Osmosis reverses aging through formulations that partner with the skin and body to create true transformation. Most skincare lines use acids or ingredients that create a limited, temporary effect but damage the skin in the process. Osmosis uses revolutionary, natural botanicals that empower the skin.
The "C" in Studio C Spa could stand for any number of qualities: clean, comfortable, chic, cutting-edge. But the most apt descriptor might be "custom." Aided by products from Redken and Bioelements, the studio's stylists are known for crafting haircuts that enhance their clients' natural features. Other members of the spa team perform services that range from relaxing massages to facials that address fine lines, wrinkles, and barcodes that won't peel off. The overarching theme is one of complete personalization; no service is performed without an analysis of the client's specific needs.
The expert staff at Sacred Hour doesn’t view spa services as treatments, but as rituals. As such, staffers take each facial, massage, and waxing service seriously, applying products imported from Italy amid the flickering glow of candles and the tranquil drips of tabletop fountains.
All members of the business crew support a local charity and pledge to give away 1% of their gross earnings. Sacred Hour also matches every dollar raised with bills that are exfoliated and massaged until wrinkle-free.
Sacred Cross Horse Services founder Ashley Mason has transformed her extensive background in horseback riding and show jumping into a unique training program. At stables tucked away in redwood forests, students attend English-style riding lessons that focus on basic fundamentals such as grooming, tacking, and learning how to bond with horses. The lessons cater to students' individual needs and skill levels while simultaneously prioritizing their education and enjoyment. Sacred Cross also leads horse camps for children, as well as lessons designed to impart a sense of responsibility, teach empathy, and stop them from trying to lead the dog into a canter. Students are required to wear long pants and heeled shoes while riding.
Envy Salon's professional manicure mavens pamper and paint finger and toenails with a gentle touch and a razor's precision. A shellac manicure chases polish-chipping hooligans off fingernails' front lawns with a hardy gel-based nail varnish that forms a shiny protective seal around fingertip turrets. This hardy manicure lasts up to two weeks, minimizing nail-breakage accidents from working, driving, or thumb wars gone awry. Clients lounge in the salon's ultra-chic environment, letting the mellow earth-toned walls relax them as fingers and toes transform in front of elegantly framed mirrors. A hand and foot massage sheds stress and tames tension in the body's two most used limbs as toes take a break from stuffy shoes during a pedicure, soaking in the suds of professional-grade skincare products and debating the relative merits of toe socks.
