Located inside Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio, Alec Ian Day Spa immediately sets clients at ease with plants, curtains, and decorative plates hung on the wall that somehow seem more practical than decorative crock pots. Alec Ian's service menu spans nearly the entire beautification spectrum. From facials to manicures, aestheticians spruce up exteriors in a comfortable spa setting. Inside a private massage room, therapists treat clients to one of seven different types of massage as a way to relax after a long day. Additionally, Alec Ian offers up med-spa services such as Botox, Dysport, and Restylane fillers.
If the sum of her 1,155 hours of training were one long massage, that massage would last 48 days.

The multitalented team further magnifies clients’ beauty with airbrush spray tans, teeth-whitening treatments, and facial waxing.
Evans & Co.'s skilled stylists pamper guests with stylish haircuts, luxurious scalp massages, and informative haircare lessons. Clients can kick back throughout a 75-minute session as scissors carefully snip hairs into fashionable shapes such as an exclamation point or quadrilateral. Thirsty coiffures can absorb the moisture of deep-reconditioning products from Pureology and Unite, then relax through an indulgent scalp massage, during which therapeutic fingers rub away stressful thoughts. Stylists share trade secrets in an informative hairstyling lesson, teaching patrons how to force their wild hairs to sit, stay, and fetch the newspaper. Patrons can sip on a complimentary cup of tea, water, coffee, or soda throughout their visit.
International Day Spa has been supplying Redlands-area pamperistas with relaxing and beautifying treatments for more than 21 years. In the Massage à Trois service, couples take turns receiving one-hour Swedish/American massages. The partner not currently receiving the massage is encouraged to participate with the therapist, learning techniques that can be used at home or at stressful youth soccer games. After both partners have received their massage, couples are invited to relax in the Turkish steam room, attacking their already weakened stress levels with an assault of vapors and withering criticism. Solo spa goers can opt instead to partake of the spa’s other services, including hot-stone massage ($95+), facials (generally $45–$235), and hydrotherapy services, such as aromatherapy body buffing or salt glow with a relaxing Vichy shower ($55).
