Gina Cornacchioli is an aesthetician and acne specialist with 14 years of experience. She once grappled with her own skin issues, and this motivated her to immerse herself in the study of skincare and develop regimens to facilitate healthy and unblemished skin. As the owner of Sage Skin Studio, she’s parlayed her experiences into nourishing treatments such as facials with aromatherapy, which help counteract blemishes and imperfections while also offering the client a pleasant and relaxing experience. Sage Skin Studio also offers massage therapy treatments that render muscles loose enough to escape a magician’s bear hug.
In its staff?s own words, The Sweet Spot Skincare is a ?humble neighborhood spa.? Clients will have a difficult time being so humble when they catch a glimpse of their smooth skin after an all-natural facial or sugaring hair-removal treatment. Facials target skin conditions such as acne and wrinkles, and all of them include dermatological face mapping and light extractions. Sugaring treatments, on the other hand, pull unwanted hair from the root with an all-natural sugar paste or sticky caramel fudge.
Aestheticians Veronica Jeffries and Nora Finch enhance their clients’ beauty and wellness with custom skincare treatments. Their services, including customized facials, microdermabrasion, and peels, cater to a full spectrum of clients and imperfections, from teens with acne to more mature clients with wrinkles shaped like crow’s feet or eagle's talons. They also wax body hair and highlight clients' features with makeup applications.
Though threading primarily deals with hair removal, the real focus of the service is the skin. Many depilation methods extract unwanted strands, but leave skin irritated and subject to wrinkle-producing tugs and yanks. Threading combats these unwanted effects with a 100% cotton thread that loops and uproots unwanted hair, eliminating the need for chemicals that can cause breakouts and require the placement of hazard stickers on faces. Beauty By Thread’s expert technicians wield strings with the utmost precision, creating sultry eyebrow arches and removing hair from upper lips, sideburns, or infringing hair lines.
Threading leaves brows expertly shaped for up to three weeks, and the staff also offer Lizette Mineral eyebrow-makeup kits, which combine 10 shades of water-resistant powders and six stencils that allow clients to maintain beautiful looks at home. Clients can also add an exotic touch to their look with the shop's showcase of ankle bracelets, bangles, and tiaras instead of filling out the endless paperwork required to adopt a pet tiger.
Salon owner Deborah Nava and husband Michael draw upon more than 40 years of combined of experience and wisdom gleaned from Deborah's stints with Sebastian of Beverly Hills and Allen Edwards of Newport Beach and Michael's training at the International Dior Academy to curate customized, face-flattering coifs. Though stylists customize cuts to flatter each client’s style or conceal budding antlers, the shearing team specializes in youthful hairstyles, sculpting asymmetric looks, and applying vivid highlights. Stylists also festoon strands with the latest flourishes such as keratin treatments and feather extensions. Additionally, hair gurus happily instruct clients in ways to re-create trend-savvy styles at home while furnishing tips for extending the look’s lifespan.
