Heaven Scent Day Spa & Salon is an elegant space, with golden walls, soft chandeliers, and a trickling fountain. Skilled stylists float about the salon, transforming hair with cuts, color treatments, and smoothing keratin blowouts. Meanwhile, in spa treatment rooms, skincare specialists rejuvenate skin with exfoliating body wraps and anti-aging facials. Massage therapists soothe aches and pains with an array of massages, including Swedish, aromatherapy, and reflexology. And at mani-pedi stations, nail technicians pamper clients with paraffin hand treatments and detoxifying foot masks.
No hair request is left unmet by Chrystal Star at Designs by Cstar. The stylist cuts wispy layers into long hair and tops off new looks with side-swept bangs. More out-of-the-box styles include hot pink hair dye used for highlights or an ombre effect. Her updo’s range from braids loosely roped around a bun to big bouffant.
Acrylics and shellac are just one facet of the creative salon services offered by seasoned pros at Capitola Hair & Nail Designs. They also liven up limp hair with perms, iron out frizz during straightening treatments, apply hair extensions, remove unwanted facial hair with wax, and color locks to complement skin tone or match your nation’s flag.
Just blocks away from the Pacific Ocean lies a fountain of youth, or so patrons of Tonic Salon & Spa III would have you believe. Within the salon and spa’s warm, beige-colored walls, the staff employ products made with organic ingredients from Budapest during spa treatments that purify pores and leave skin looking better than the day it arrived in the mail. In addition to facials, beauticians also perform waxing, sunless tanning, and five varieties of massage services.
The salon staff also wields scissors and hair products to untangle and shape locks into popular styles. Partial and full coloring services touch up seasonal looks or spy disguises by adding highlights and new pigments to layers of hair, and conditioning treatments harness the power of tea tree and Moroccanoil products to strengthen hair.
Stylists at Baliza Salon draw on their arsenal of salon-quality products from brands such as Pureology, Redken, and Pravana when cutting and coloring clients’ hair or pampering their skin with facials. In addition to cuts, stylists also combat unwanted frizz with keratin-infused Brazilian gloss treatments and add volume and length with hair extensions. Away from the styling floor, aestheticians cleanse pores with facials, and nail technicians add shellac polish to keep nails looking as fresh as a crisp head of lettuce floating through the vacuum of outer space.
Salon Rouge of Los Gatos aims to bring a bit of Parisian flair to California. But rather than constructing a scale model of the Louvre out of scissors, the stylists prefer to use them to snip chic 'dos. While clients relax in cushy chairs—overlooked by a large print of the Eiffel Tower—the beauty experts employ Goldwell products as they shape locks and add color or highlights. The staff also provides styling services for special occasions, granting guests' ensembles that additional je ne sais quoi.
