As a full-service cosmetology, aesthetics, makeup-artistry, and holistic-health school, Bellus offers a range of salon services for follicles of all ferocities. Get a haircut ($15 for women), all-over hair coloring ($35+), 50-minute pomegranate facial ($35), or a brow waxing ($10), among many other options. The comprehensive menu also offers Whiter Image teeth whitening ($50), spray tanning ($30 for 30 minutes), and massage ($30 for a 50-minute Swedish). Though many services are performed by beauty professionals in training, all clinical skincare treatments, such as the Intraceutical hyperbaric oxygen-therapy facial ($70 for 45 minutes) are performed by a licensed aesthetician and include a consultation so that your skinscape’s particular isthmuses and archipelagoes are taken into account.
Head Over Heels Salon's experienced nail technician Trish Pillows prettifies phalanges with cuticle-cleansing nail services deftly administered in the tranquility of a homespun atmosphere. Elaborate plant decorations and plush chairs cushion guests as rough appendages soak and cuticles soften to a buttery consistency. Trish scrubs and files away calluses, leaving smooth, soft skin and unearthed treasure maps in their stead as palms and soles delight in a massage. Clippers trim nails to a tidy length before pigmented polish coats cuticles with technicolor hues.
At Star Nails, beauty professional Holly uses sanitary tools and top-notch products to renovate visages and leave cuticles looking classy in less than an hour. An upper-lip wax eliminates unwanted peach fuzz around the pie hole to remove all obstacles impeding the rapid consumption of both peaches and pies. Or, those boasting bushy brows can opt to send Holly's depilating prowess northward to restore order to frazzled forehead feelers. Nails prone to chips and scratches find themselves filed, buffed, and prettily protected beneath a lustrous layer of gel-like polish during the Shellac manicure, whereas the hot spa mani-pedi swaps out the tough stuff for a traditional coat of polish, lavishing each piggy with unrivaled pampering and sending them back into the world ready to sport winter sandals and fingerless motorcycle gloves with pride.
Licensed aestheticians Nader Harerchan and Pamela Feller draw upon their extensive skincare knowledge to improve clients' skin with their wealth of services. Wielding MD Formulation and Dermalogica products, they firm and tighten faces with photo rejuvenations, use deep-cleansing glycolic acid to reduce acne, and exfoliate dead-skin cells with a diamond microdermabrasion made from recycled royal jewels. For further enhancement, a cellulite-reduction treatment tones bodies and tightens muscles through a combination of electrical muscle stimulation and endermatic therapy. In addition to skincare, Dermal Rejuvenation and Day Spa relaxes clients with massage therapies, nail care, and holistic-chiropractic sessions.
In 2001, the first iTan Sun Spray Spa opened its doors. It had a simple goal—to make clients feel and look lovely with professional tanning services. Today, the spa has more than 20 branches around San Diego, each offering a slightly different assortment of tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and mechanical spa services.
The Smart Tan–certified staff prioritizes keeping up with tanning technology by stocking state-of-the-art tanning beds such as the Sun Angel, which uses sensors to customize a blend of UVA and UVB rays, practically eliminating overexposure and the need to wear a beekeeper suit to detract from a burn. Many beds come equipped with stereo sound systems, misters, and fans. Just down the hall from these beauty gadgets, Mystic and airbrush machines bronze limbs without UV rays or tan crayons, and mechanical spa machines dispense relaxing red-light treatments, infrared-energy body wraps, and aqua massages.
