BellaDawna Esthetic Artistry and Care makes it easy for skin to look its best by offering treatments designed to enhance its natural beauty. It makes sense then, that the spa's facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and peels are some of the aestheticians' main offerings. But those aren't the only services people come to BellaDawna's team for. There's also spray tanning for the beach deprived, massage for the tense, and lash extensions. BellaDawna also carries cosmetics and skincare products to help you keep up a healthy skin routine at home, under a waterfall, or wherever else you tend to wash your face in the morning.
Vanity Skin Care's owner and chief aesthetician gifts women with a break from the world, and the chance to return to it feeling beautiful. She maintains a clean, peaceful spa, without a speck of dust to distract from her clients during treatments. There, she soothes skin with an array of facials and peels that reduce the appearance of sun spots, wrinkles, and acne. She also provides an array of waxing services to remove extra hair from faces and limbs where it could distract people while they are driving or turning cartwheels down the street.
As a teenager, Skin Care Pleasure Point owner and head aesthetician Patty Yarr had what she calls "problem skin." Her experiences managing her own complexion have informed the work she and her team of cosmetic caretakers do: crafting facials and skincare treatments that address individual issues and cater to specific skin types. They also offer personalized makeup services and lessons. Clients seeking hair-removal treatments can opt for waxing sessions, which are available for every bodily ZIP code.
Serene Skin & Body opened more than 20 years ago, and is now the largest full-service day spa in Santa Cruz. For the body, a scrub made of organic sugar and the client's choice of essential oils both hydrates and exfoliates. And during mani-pedis, the Eco-fin treatment acts as an all-natural add-on, a petroleum-free alternative to paraffin that moisturizes with equal power. The spa boast products from Jan Marini and Jane Iredale, as well as a full line of organic skin-care offerings. Serene Skin & Body is a full service day spa with eight treatment rooms and offers a variety of services ranging from facials, massage, waxing, airbrush tanning, bridal services, and spa parties.
The mane-taming magicians at The Hair Remedy use a variety of high-quality products, including Paul Mitchell, to perform cutting and coloring services that help heads turn heads. During the 90-minute Brazilian blowout procedure, hair stylists first wash and dry tangled tresses with a specially formulated shampoo before they apply a formaldehyde-free smoothing agent. The solution laces hair with a layer of protein, which gives follicles the strength to scare strands straight as the stylist unleashes a blow dryer's warm influence. To wrap up the process, hairologists execute two more rounds of blow-drying and solution applying, leaving headcoats looking shinier and healthier than a waterfall of donut glaze.
Juliet Bettencourt draws on years of experience in skincare and massage therapy to soothe bodies with treatments that blend the principles of both within a relaxing spa environment. After her own struggles with acne compelled her to help others, Juliet enrolled in beauty school, where she began to augment her uncommon empathy for patients with vast reserves of skincare knowledge. Today, she matches that unique combination of compassion and clinical precision with products from Raya Cosmetics and other trusted brands that cater to normal and sensitive skin types. When she isn?t flushing out pores and polishing cheeks during facials, Juliet waxes away unwanted fuzz.
