During her 11-year stint as a healthcare provider for the fire service, Dawn Saidat saw more than her fair share of body trauma—but she also saw how massage and physical therapy could heal those traumas. So she decided to pursue a career in the healing arts and now performs everything from deep-tissue massage to Reiki energy healing to aromatherapy massage at Dawn's Oasis. She also travels to homes to further reduce a client's stress and see what kind of dishwashing detergent they prefer to use.
Aesthetician Mary incorporates Image Skin Care and Skin Script products into her facials to help improve problematic skin conditions. She slathers faces with a glycolic acid peel to reduce fine lines and dresses skin in a salicylic acid peel to combat acne. She also expertly waxes off unwanted hair on faces and limbs.
IKON Aveda Salon & Day Spa is an Aveda concept salon with three locations. Though each one has its own unique slate of services, the overall mission is unified—to cultivate stylish, modern looks for its clients and create a welcoming atmosphere. At the Menifee location, master stylists cut, color, and texturize hair, while skin care specialists conduct botanical resurfacing treatments—alternatives to microdermabrasions—that use tourmaline gemstone to gently reduce fine lines and the tiny acrobats who walk them. The Santa Ana and Tustin locations also offer haircuts and hair treatments, as well as a selection of makeup, lash, and skincare services.
"Skincare has always been a passion of mine," says aesthetician Elizabeth Lewis. She's chased this passion all the way to her intimate studio inside Salon Bellezza, where she adopts a clinical approach to soothing her clients' skin. Though she performs six specific facials—such as the vitamin-C facial, designed to soothe sun-damaged skin, and the Spine Chiller, a back facial with exfoliation and massage—she customizes each to her clients' needs. Additionally, she removes unwanted hair with waxing services, and also applies eyelash extensions.
