Though Magic Brow Threading Salon's staff specializes in making eyebrows look their best—using an ancient threading technique—the salon also offers other beauty services, including facials, waxing, and microdermabrasion. As skincare specialists, the licensed estheticians swear by Dermalogica products, which are available for purchase at the salon. Magic Brow also purveys handbags, fashion accessories, and eyebrow powder and gel.
The aesthetic professionals at House of Beauty beautify bodies through threading, waxing, facials, henna designs, and a passel of other services. Threading, a House of Beauty specialty, uses the tension between two coiled strings to deftly extract unwanted hair, including the extra-fine strands that dodge waxing with eel-like reflexes—nimble aestheticians can reshape eyebrows ($8), a favorite thread-target, in five to seven minutes. Spa treatments such as the one-hour European facial ($50) can pamper peaked visages, and painted henna tattoos ($5+) shimmy up hands and feet to be-filigree appendages and add glamour to rock, paper, scissors tournaments. All locations except the Moreno Valley Mall and Temecula Mall locations cut and color hair, a useful service for pretending to be one's own evil twin.
Named after the colorful bracelets that jangle on the wrists of many Indian women, Ruby’s Bangles gives its patrons an opportunity to partake in ancient Eastern beauty rituals. In the spa, aestheticians use eyebrow threading techniques inspired by Egyptian beauty rituals to remove unwanted hair. Skilled henna artists can transform hands and feet with dramatic plant-ink designs. The store's boutique boasts a wide selection of Indian-inspired jewelry, including bindis, necklaces, bangles, and hip chains for belly dancing or keeping prank-prone jeans from running away.
The certified stylists at Bellezza Salon have specialties ranging from extensions and makeup to Brazilian blowouts. But when it comes to client attentiveness, they are of one mind. Before whittling away any unwanted tresses, the team consults with clients, listening to their wildest hair dreams and getting a sense of the clients' style. Then, they refurbish looks with cuts and color, sprinkling heads with professional products by Redken, Paul Mitchell, and Moroccanoil. Apart from the full menu of hair services, Bellezza Salon's versatile staff also primps clients with facials, full-body waxing, and acrylic nails.
Aesthetician and PCA Skin certified professional Heather Fowler at Renew Skin Therapy begins every session—whether a rejuvenating facial or a chemical peel—with a skin analysis. From there, she settles on the proper cleansers to tackle each client’s specific skin woes, whether the hope is to mask the signs of aging, quench dry spots, or reverse the hexes that cursed clients with chameleon skin. Each client is sent home with a tailored home regimen to optimize and prolong their facial treatment. Also offering waxing services to their repertoire, many of the spa’s chosen effective PCA Skin and Skin Fitness Therapy products are infused with natural scents and ingredients such as pumpkin, aloe vera, cranberry, and agave margarita, many of which are organic and environmentally friendly.
The I-ACT certified technicians at Alternative Wellness Day Spa steer clients toward stronger health with holistic treatments including infrared body wraps, massages, and colon-hydrotherapy sessions. Shawna, the colon hydrotherapist, entered the field over a decade ago after forays with the treatment produced a significant uptick in her own health. She now works alongside a massage therapist with over 1,000 hours of tension-battling experience to improve the health and well-being of their clients.
Wine-tinted curtains separate the comfortable lounge area from the private colon-hydrotherapy treatment rooms, where guests recline in specialized seats designed to ensure comfort and restore healthy gastrointestinal function.
