Lorianne Riley’s makeup artistry can be seen throughout California—on the runway, in photos, and on the faces of the stars of Chico’s Wake Up! news show. Additionally—as an educator for Mirabella, California Skincare Supply, Szep Elet, and SkinCare Fundamentals—Riley has trained countless beauty professionals. When she isn’t working as a freelance makeup artist on photo shoots and runway shows, the licensed cosmetologist and certified massage therapist is bestowing the benefits of her experience on clients at eleMENts by Beaute. Trained in LED, ultrasonic, and microcurrent therapies, she draws out skin impurities, enhances facial features, and removes chronic pain and tension.
Riley helms a staff that provides massage work, body treatments, and nail care. During men’s and women’s treatments, staff members use organic products that are never tested on animals or Barbie dolls. Guests can sip on green teas, organic coffee, or fruit-infused water while lounging on Asian- and French-baroque-inspired furniture and humming along to jazz, world beat, and Euro music.
For Sandra Lin Joseph, Light Your Own Way isn't just the name of a business?it's an instruction for living a better, richer life. She has certainly followed her own advice, becoming an expert in disciplines as diverse as Reiki, intuitive massage therapy, and personal training. She draws on her extensive skill set to achieve the simple goal of helping her clients heal themselves. Maybe that's why she doesn't typically refer to herself as merely a "personal trainer" or "therapist." She prefers a more appropriate designation: "healing artist."
Every member of the staff at Body Resort, from the clinical aesthetician to the bodywork therapist, strives to help clients obtain "beauty from head to soul." In business for over two decades, the spa's serene space allows for this transformation by harboring both traditional beauty treatments and alternative-healing treatments. Clients can also stop in for manicures, haircuts, waxes, makeup applications, body wraps, and intuitive massage therapy.
At ChicoEcoSpa, certified massage therapist Christine Mata relaxes clients with facials, scrubs, and many modalities of massage. Her massage expertise covers everything from soothing Swedish and hot-stone treatments to therapeutic sessions and massages for expectant mothers.
Atelier Salon and Spa offers haircuts, highlights, and numerous other styling services, such as extensions and Awapuhi keratin deep-conditioning treatments. The stylists at this full-service salon and spa are committed to giving their clients makeovers that will reflect their personal style and emphasize their most flattering features.
Including owner Nicole Walz, 10 stylists beautify locks at Blush Salon, and they each bring distinct skills to the table. After assessing which options best complement each client’s face shape and hair, the stylists sculpt dos with cuts, revitalize looks with color, or add texture with straightening or curling treatments. The salon’s stock of haircare products, including Aveda and Pureology, help visitors maintain their new looks after each appointment. Whereas stylists reshape hair, the salon’s aestheticians remove it all together during waxing sessions.
