Tina Zillmann, Skin Rejuvenation Clinique's owner and director, espouses a firm belief that "education is the key to success." This applies equally to the clinic's employees and clients—Zillmann's beauty pros undergo regular professional development and reprogramming to stay abreast of the latest treatments, technologies, and products. As for her clients, Zillmann ensures that they know the nuances of each service, from the steps involved to expected results and aftercare. The spa divides its treatments into four categories—facials, body services, salon services, and hair removal—that each work to rejuvenate appearances. Skincare services incorporate products by Advanced Rejuvenating Concepts, which are also available for purchase. Zillmann had a hand in creating the line, developing complex, clinical-grade cleansers, lotions, and balms for specific skin types.
When Leslie Sandoval founded Treat Hair Studio in 2007, she drew upon her time living in New York and Los Angeles to create a fusion of East and West Coast salon styles. This fusion manifests itself in the salon's contemporary furniture and modern art, a diverse staff of talented stylists, and constant arguments over which American coast has the biggest pyramids. For haircare, stylists exclusively use Italian-imported Davines hair products. The studio also carries a full line of Enessa skincare products, which are made with natural ingredients and essential oils. Each service at the salon is a full experience; it often includes a complimentary scalp treatment, shampoo and conditioning treatment, hand massage, mini facial, and blow-dry style.
Founded by Matthew and Tina Zillmann in 2012, Blown Beautiful instills two decades of beauty industry experience and dedication into its staff. These skilled stylists renovate strands with sleek scissor cuts, bold highlights, and soothing therapeutic treatments. But above all else, the salon is a blowout bar, offering express blowouts for special occasions as well as keratin and Brazilian treatments to reduce frizz and fortify hair.
Along with specializing in color and highlighting, stylist Russell Howerton beautifies locks with haircuts, Brazilian blowouts, and sought-after Biolustré treatments. The result: sleek, healthy hairstyles that make clients as entranced with their reflections as a cat in a carnival mirror fun house.
