Owner Lisa Greene and the ace salon and spa specialists at Escape Luxury Salon & Day Spa have built up an impressive list of services aimed at relaxing and beautifying clients. Personnel sit down with patrons to determine which treatments best suit their needs, from hairstyling and highlighting to nail enhancement, [exfoliating facials, or muscle-soothing massages]((http://gr.pn/NNDJ4y). During treatments, they use high-quality products from brands such as Epicuren and OPI, which are available for purchase in the salon's boutique. The salon?s view of a nearby harbor, the Ventura mountains, and hiking hypnotists ruffling leaf piles into heart shapes contributes to the serene air that permeates the space.
Amid the relaxing scene of Channel Islands Harbor sits Bella Mar Day Spa & Salon. Here, the staff matches its location's outdoor beauty with beautifying treatments, such as permanent makeup, hairstyling, tanning, and nailcare. The staff also counts soothing massages and body wraps as specialties.
At ArchiTexture, coloring specialists are just as likely to infuse a client's hair with a dusky glow as they are to stencil in some neon-pink lightning bolts. Owner Erika Harding values technical expertise as well as artistic expression?an attitude that's also shared by her team of seven hair stylists, an aesthetician, and two licensed massage therapists.
All visits begin with a consultation, during which staffers work with clients to determine their style goals. While colorists infuse hair with colors ranging from subtle to avant-garde, stylists perform custom cuts for men and women. In the spa, steady hands massage visages with an array of organic facials and PCA peels. The salon's creative atmosphere also extends to its in-house art gallery.
Getting your nails done is a simple way to make yourself feel more put together, and as a result, a simple way to feel ready to take on the world. At Salon Elite, nail artist Olivia boosts the confidence of those in need of a quick pick-me-up through manicures and pedicures. She pushes down cuticles and trims and shapes nails, as well as kneads feet, ensuring they are as relaxed as a sock puppet cleaned in a sink instead of a washing machine. Olivia then brushes bright polishes and shiny topcoats onto nails.
Olivia works alongside several cosmetologists and aestheticians, who also boost confidence through their hair and skincare services.
Alejandro Salon is always thinking of its customers. It's held three client appreciation and charity events and even offered clients discounts during the month of March for bringing in peanut butter, which was donated to Food Share. Most importantly, however, the salon provides its clients with the work of experienced stylists, such as Jessica Haas. Jessica performs a variety of services, including painting manes with color or highlights, adding volume with weaves, snipping strands into chic coifs, and nourishing strands with conditioner.
Fresh lilies blush on Rebe Belle Salon de Colour’s front desk and cards peek out of a whimsical shoe-shaped business card holder. The salon’s playful sensibility belies its meticulous attention to detail, which stylists to each hairstyling or makeup session. In the waiting area, customers relax on zebra print chairs or carefully paint monochromatic stripes on their bodies until they blend into the fabric. In the styling room, products peek out from between the leaves of lush vines that creep across high wooden shelves.
