Lorianne Riley’s makeup artistry can be seen throughout California—on the runway, in photos, and on the faces of the stars of Chico’s Wake Up! news show. Additionally—as an educator for Mirabella, California Skincare Supply, Szep Elet, and SkinCare Fundamentals—Riley has trained countless beauty professionals. When she isn’t working as a freelance makeup artist on photo shoots and runway shows, the licensed cosmetologist and certified massage therapist is bestowing the benefits of her experience on clients at eleMENts by Beaute. Trained in LED, ultrasonic, and microcurrent therapies, she draws out skin impurities, enhances facial features, and removes chronic pain and tension.
Riley helms a staff that provides massage work, body treatments, and nail care. During men’s and women’s treatments, staff members use organic products that are never tested on animals or Barbie dolls. Guests can sip on green teas, organic coffee, or fruit-infused water while lounging on Asian- and French-baroque-inspired furniture and humming along to jazz, world beat, and Euro music.
With dozens of locations sprinkled around the sunshine state, California Sun makes it easy for tanners to bronze without fear of sunburn. As sunless bathers daydream within two levels of Ergoline beds, melanin rises to the skin's surface at the beck and call of a high-pressure cooling system or adjustable face tanners, leaving bodies with a golden glow in just 10–12 minutes. For those who prefer the misty kiss of a sunless spray tan, formulas by VersaSpa, Mystic Tan, or Norvell grace guests with new shades that can last from four to seven days and won't leave skin looking unnaturally orange or supernaturally blue.
Tonya Garcia uses products from Pureology, Paul Mitchell, Redken, and Chromatics when cutting, coloring, and styling hair into trendy new looks. A graduate of a Paul Mitchell school and learning leader of a Paul Mitchell partner school, she draws from her experience to craft new styles and enhance the health of hair. At Allure Innovation Salon, she works alongside a team of beauty professionals who enhance facial features with M.A.C makeup products, smoothen frizz with keratin treatments, and remove unwanted facial hair with warm wax.
The stylists and nail techs of Mane Event Salon apply 25 years of collective beauty-industry experience to pamper patrons inside their modern, recently updated space. Chandeliers glisten as deft trims evict split ends from patrons seated in salon chairs or excess foliage from houseplants preening themselves in broad mirrors. A footbath soaks guests' toes in effervescent bubbles before techs brush on polish or adorn fingers with acrylic tips. Each room In the earthy salon has a color theme, and the earthy vibe further induces relaxation during massages and facials.
Atelier Salon and Spa offers haircuts, highlights, and numerous other styling services, such as extensions and Awapuhi keratin deep-conditioning treatments. The stylists at this full-service salon and spa are committed to giving their clients makeovers that will reflect their personal style and emphasize their most flattering features.
The skillful staff at Vibrant Tanning Too, named one of the area's best tanning salons by viewers of KCRA 3, guides patrons toward a sun-kissed glow through various tanning techniques. The high-powered lamps in a Gold-level or more intense Diamond-level bed darken epidermises to give bodies a beach-ready look or help them perfect their wheat-penny impressions. During 20-minute red-light rejuvenation sessions, an arsenal of light beams works to promote the production of collagen and elastin, allowing scars, stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles to parachute from skin surfaces. Alternatively, trained and certified technicians can deftly apply airbrushed color in 15-minute airbrush-tanning sessions, deepening the skin's hue to a light tan, deep bronze, or festive green polka dot for up to 11 vacation-like days.
