For the past 14 years, salon owner Milla Yagudayev has built up a beauty team of certified nail techs, cosmeticians, and hair artists?including her own daughter, who has worked alongside her since childhood. Together, the staff elevates the condition of scalps and bodies to their pinnacle of beauty with highlights, eyebrow threading, facials, and haircuts for the whole family. Stylists prepare clients for important milestones with wedding and quincea?era updos and makeovers, or treat guests to meticulous, all-over waxing, optionally removing hair in the shape of important computer passwords.
Hawaiian flowers, elegant art-deco designs, even the flags of the world. If you can imagine it, the technicians at Queen Nails and Spa can probably transform it into stunning nail art. There's no such thing as a "regular" mani-pedi here; not when the options include shiny gemstones and meticulously copied pages of the dictionary. But the pampering doesn't stop at the fingers. A full team of aestheticians tackles skin issues of all kinds, waxing away unwanted hair and scrubbing away dirt during custom facials.
Long before tweezers were invented, individuals rid their faces of excess fuzz using nothing more than a cotton thread. That simple method of hair removal was so successful that it has remained a steadfast option in salons today. At Hollywood Beauty, specialists twist pieces of cotton thread to smooth faces or play Cat's Cradle in their downtime.
Academy of Nail Technology's instructors import at least five years of field experience into classrooms where they equip apprentice nail techs with the latest techniques. The Academy?s hands-on learning atmosphere is similar to a traditional salon, one stocked with contemporary tools and polishes, including Shellac and Gelish. Budding beautifiers focus on executing flawless services, and therefore sometimes take longer than professionals to perform mani-pedis and nail art.
The team members at Halo Nail Salon and Spa specialize in the art of pampering. During their relaxing spa pedicures, a sextet of aromatherapy products causes stress and tension to float away through the ventilation system. Likewise with massages, which range from soothing Swedish strokes to trigger-point therapy—a technique designed to relieve pain and oust toxins. Facials leave pores dewy and rejuvenated, and waxing treatments banish unwanted body hair from legs, bikini lines, and brows.
Denise Quintana wanted her salon to honor her grandmother, her mother, and her daughter. Luckily, all three of them had the same name: Delfina. And so, Delfina Salon & Day Spa was born.
With products from brands such as American Crew, Pureology, and TIGI’s Bed Head, Quintana and her team revamp their clients’ locks with artful color, cuts, and texturizing treatments. Alternatively, they can craft intricate updos to glamorize special occasions or fit snugly into a favorite shower cap. The team also pampers clients with spa treatments that range from body scrubs to tension-easing massages.
