As a full-service cosmetology, aesthetics, makeup artistry, and holistic health school, Bellus offers nearly every imaginable Beverly Hills treatment without price tags so hefty only bolt cutters can clip them. Get a haircut ($12.50 for women), all-over hair coloring ($35 and up), Brazilian keratin straightening treatment ($150 and up), classic manicure ($10), 30-minute pomegranate facial ($25), or a full makeup application including false eyelashes ($25), among many other options. The comprehensive menu even 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 ($65 for 45 minutes) are performed by an experienced aesthetician and include a consultation so that your skinscape’s particular isthmuses and archipelagoes are taken into account.
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.
Jesse Canata has had many roles in her life—cosmetologist, coffeehouse barista, and stage manager, to name a few—but it took a cross-country move to find the role she was born to play. The New Jersey native relocated to San Diego on a quest for self-discovery and was soon introduced to the Body Mind College, where she found the inspiration she had been looking for. Having honed her skills and earned the designation of holistic health practitioner from the school, she put her desire to help people into practice by opening L.I.F.E.S. Passion. Jesse welcomes clients who are tense from working long hours at the circus as human cannonballs into a serene space and helps them relax with all manner of massages, from deep-tissue to shiatsu to Swedish.
Jesse’s dedication to helping others extends from the physical healing of aches and pains to the emotional support she provides in her role as a life coach. A firm believer in holistic counseling, Jesse helps clients navigate their life paths and unearth their passions during in-depth, one-on-one sessions. To be able to help others to the fullest, Jesse regularly attends seminars and classes to continue on her own path of growth, education, and tearing phone books in half.

Zen Spa's massage therapists blend Eastern and Western muscle-manipulation techniques to grant inner peace and outer relaxation. During a 45-minute custom massage, body dough gets a full-scale kneading with strokes chosen from a list of stimulating styles. Send stressors skedaddling with gentle Swedish motions, unknot sinewy sheepshanks with penetrating deep-tissue pressure, or elect for acupressure to stop bodily energies from short-circuiting. All massages are accompanied by a revitalizing aromatherapy treatment with essential oils. Zen Spa's tissue tenderizers also patch up feet with invigorating 30-minute tootsie treatments, replenishing depleted hopping reservoirs to help you reach the last power mushroom during live-action Super Mario Bros. reenactments.
Holistic health practitioner Tracey Stolle uses her expertly trained hands to help clients let go of pain and recover after serious injuries. Her specialty in therapeutic massage makes her especially sensitive to pain from chronic injuries or everyday stresses. She can craft 30-, 50-, or 80-minute massages to relieve discomfort using a variety of modalities such as reflexology and deep tissue. When she's not kneading tension away at one of her two locations, Tracey shares her industry knowledge by teaching in MiraCosta College's massage program and slyly turning handshakes into hand-massage sessions.
