For more than 20 years, Oracle Salon owner Melissa Geriah has been giving her customers’ coiffures the benefit of her extensive training in a wide range of professional salon products and coloring techniques. Her services include men’s and women’s haircuts, beard trimming, highlights and color, and image consulting.
Practiced stylist Christine Miller has been sculpting classic and contemporary hairstyles since 1985. At Studio Bijoux, she employs these decades of experience while carving out cuts for men, women, and children using Privé and Redken products. Christine also imbues locks with rich, deep Goldwell and Framesi hair color, which can perk up her guests just as much as the complimentary coffee and water she offers them.
Established in 1990, Hair Restoration of California—which has been featured on Los Angeles Fox News and KCAL Channel 9—offers a variety of treatments that address hair loss in men, women, and children. In addition to low-level laser hair-therapy treatments and surgical hair transplants performed by board-certified plastic surgeons, they give their clients nonsurgical hair replacement options such as Ultratress hair-progression hair extensions. They treat patients who suffer from male- and female-pattern baldness, as well as those who have medical hair loss caused by chemotherapy or alopecia. Inside their facility, an experienced staff of trichologists and beauticians work inside private styling rooms while clients read, watch television, or stare at the ceiling trying to name all the constellations in alphabetical order.
By helping to promote more restful sleep and to quiet stressed nervous systems, the practitioners of Heaven Spa view massage as an important part of supporting one’s health. They focus on any part of the body that receives the most stress, which is why their one-hour foot massage actually includes kneads of the neck, shoulders, arms, back, and face as well. Guests can also opt for a combination treatment, which adds a foot soak and reflexology session onto a body massage that targets specific areas of tension, such as trapezius muscles weighed down by offering to carry all your friends’ shoulder chips.
For 15 years, the stylists at Simbiotica Salon have been welcoming clients into their space for image overhauls. Abiding by the definition of the word ?simbiotica,? which means a mutually beneficial relationship between two people, the stylists forge relationships with their clients by offering them a cup of cappuccino and crafting haircuts, colors, and styles that best suit the client?s features and personal style goals. In addition to hair services, mani-pedis, and facials, the salon offers laser hair-regeneration treatments, which encourage natural hair growth for clients experiencing hair loss.
The floors at Lusk Salon are an intricate mosaic of clay tiles in concentric circles––orange, olive green, and earthen brown. Ample natural light brings out these colors, and bathes stylists in a glow as they deftly highlight tresses and chisel hair into flattering layers. Clients may also solicit the salon for sleek human-hair extensions, or request a keratin treatment to reduce frizz and fortify stands.
