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.
Baking in the sun can lead to premature wrinkles and skin cancer. With this knowledge in mind, Tabatha Reece founded H-2 Glow Spray Tanning. Reece wanted her customers to be able to get a convenient tan and feel confident without the hassle or dangers of other forms of tanning. In her organic spray-tan solutions, she uses vitamins, plant extracts, and other anti-aging properties. After each session, skin is glowing, hydrated, and healthy. Before entering the booth, Reece helps each client feel relaxed and secure to avoid any Ross Geller moments.
Reveal Skin and Body Care, lauded by Inland Empire magazine in its 2013 “Very Best of the I.E.” issue, invites guests to relax surrounded by soft lighting, earth tones, and soothing skin and hair services.

The tanning experts at Sun Shy Airbrush Tanning help clients develop beach-ready bronze skin with airbrush-applied mists of tanning solution. The staff uses different formulas based on each client's current skin condition and preferred outcome, with solutions designed to cultivate both light, sun-kissed looks and full-bodied, dark tans.
International Day Spa has been supplying Redlands-area pamperistas with relaxing and beautifying treatments for more than 21 years. In the Massage à Trois service, couples take turns receiving one-hour Swedish/American massages. The partner not currently receiving the massage is encouraged to participate with the therapist, learning techniques that can be used at home or at stressful youth soccer games. After both partners have received their massage, couples are invited to relax in the Turkish steam room, attacking their already weakened stress levels with an assault of vapors and withering criticism. Solo spa goers can opt instead to partake of the spa’s other services, including hot-stone massage ($95+), facials (generally $45–$235), and hydrotherapy services, such as aromatherapy body buffing or salt glow with a relaxing Vichy shower ($55).
The stylists of Mon Amie Salon prettify hair, deftly apply makeup, and carefully wax away wayward fuzz. Scissor-wielding pros cut and style locks ($30–$40), deep-conditioning listless strands into go-getting paragons of the hair community ($10). For an all-over hue boost, mane mavens deliver a color infusion with the Lakme color collage, which dispatches a soy-based product to soften the hair fiber, feng shui the scalp, and create long-lasting, shiny color ($55+). Makeup artists conduct personalized sessions on proper application, bestowing clients with a personal take-home chart ($40), while eyebrow and facial waxing sessions keep unwanted tendrils at bay ($15 each). Visitors to the earthy salon sip on complimentary beverages while lounging amidst textured walls, wooden floors, and decorative mirrors that reflect what you’d look like with a beard.
