With locations throughout California, including LA, San Diego, Santa Barbara, Sacramento, San Jose, Inland Empire, Ventura County, and Orange County, the knowledgeable staffers at Planet Beauty stock the store?s shelves with enough top-quality beauty products to outfit a regiment of beauticians. Guided by experience as aestheticians, stylists, and makeup artists, they help guests navigate the roster of premium brands, which includes bad-hair-day-banishing products from Frederic Fekkai and K?rastase. Skincare potions from Peter Thomas Roth clear facial canvases before applications of Smashbox blush brighten cheeks or Divaderme lash extender make eyelashes visible from orbit.
As a 14-year veteran of the beauty industry, owner Tawny Gray of Glam Couture Salon—a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon—bestows her beauty knowledge on her team of dedicated nail techs, aestheticians, and stylists, who also keep skills fresh with continuing education. Positive energy flows through the brightly lit salon and spa as stylists use Paul Mitchell products to reprimand rebellious split ends, frizz, and bangs that got too cozy with eyebrows. Aestheticians leave epidermises silky smooth with body waxing sessions, and nail techs spruce up finger and toe tips with OPI, Venique, and CND Shellac polish that can be applied in solid layers or decorative designs.
Salon Dolce Vita’s master scissor-wielder, Andrea Dupree, enlists 15 years of strand-snipping experience to create chic and elegant styles. Locks unfurl in the tress-tamer’s lithe fingers as she clears away split ends and tumbleweeds and leaves hair gardens flawlessly pruned. Manes eager for a punch of color can receive either a noggin’s worth of illuminating highlights or a full head of drenching hues before reveling in a toasty bout under a blow-dryer for a polished finish. After the mane refurbishment, clients can admire new ‘dos in a crystal-clear mirror or a stranger's glasses or enlist the opinion of the notoriously persnickety sun, which gallivants through the salon’s floor-to-ceiling windows.
As part of the team of stylists at Salon Gallery, Lyn is passionate about helping clients maintain their preferred style or design a new one. To that end, she performs all types of color services—including highlights and single-process—and can also remedy a squid ink recipe gone wrong through color correction. She cuts hair as well, and can help restore strength and moisture to strands with deep conditioning services.
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.
