Only a short hairbrush toss from Aiea Bay, Beautiful Soul pampers the senses with a menu of indulgent spa services. Owner Leina Keomalu can rehab mugs with an exfoliating facial, or draw on her lash certification to outfit eyelids with elegant faux mink extensions. Clients can also solicit the spa’s waxing services to nix unwanted hair from eyebrows, upper lips, or cherished pet rocks.
The rippling waters of Oahu offer relaxing backdrop for the expert bodywork of licensed massage therapist Kimberly Cazimero. In the comfort of her My Island Spa, she can ease chronic tension with focused deep-tissue pressure, or melt tension with lighter Swedish strokes. Guests may also request a signature sports massage, which improves range of motion in struggling limbs and vocal range in struggling tenors.
The desire to make people feel beautiful is in Kandice Lau’s blood. Born and raised on Oahu’s North Shore, the licensed cosmetologist is a fourth-generation hairstylist whose passion for beautification has translated into an enduring career. After spending years honing her prowess as a stylist in Las Vegas, at the 2003 Mrs. Hawaii pageant, and in her sister’s salon, Kandice fulfilled her dream of owning her own business the day she opened North Shore Salon & Spa in 2008.
Within North Shore’s pastel-hued walls, a crew of skilled stylists helms their stations as they sculpt strands via chic hair services, and aestheticians coax paws into vibrantly hued pedicure basins for relaxing nail services. Eschewing beauty products that contain irritating detergents, perfumes, and fishy tastes, the team prides itself on handcrafting all of the scrubs and massage oils used in their spa treatments. Throughout the day, patrons can be spotted sipping complimentary hot tea and refreshing cucumber water as the team waxes, bronzes, and polishes their bodies into resplendent states. Along with pampering treatments, the salon and spa houses a boutique that enables patrons to scoop up fashionable clothing and accessories pre- or postappointment.
Beautiville's licensed aestheticians bathe skin-cessories in soothing balms and a tranquil island ambience. Guests sip complimentary, organic Asantae coffee and gourmet Tea Forté tea in a clean lounge girded by aquamarine walls as they await their claw-coddling. During the next 60–80 minutes, a careful sculpting, buffing, and polishing transform nails and cuticles into scintillating helmets for crowd-pleasing fingerboard stunts and fearless line-toeing. The spa's appendage experts extend their love to skin with moisturizing lotions, a tension-deflating digit bath, and a hand and foot massage. For an additional charge, Beautiville offers childcare services while parents receive pampering.
