At Hospitality Medical Aesthetics, owners Maria and Cheri Sanchez lead a team that strives to marry in-office treatments?including noninvasive laser therapies, cosmetic injections, medically supervised weight loss, and levitation therapies?with at-home care regimens. By skillfully using products ranging from Obagi Medical to SkinCeuticals, the aesthetics crew claimed the 2013 Best Facial Runner-Up award on CityVoter.
The aesthetic professionals at House of Beauty beautify bodies through threading, waxing, facials, henna designs, and a passel of other services. Threading, a House of Beauty specialty, uses the tension between two coiled strings to deftly extract unwanted hair, including the extra-fine strands that dodge waxing with eel-like reflexes—nimble aestheticians can reshape eyebrows ($8), a favorite thread-target, in five to seven minutes. Spa treatments such as the one-hour European facial ($50) can pamper peaked visages, and painted henna tattoos ($5+) shimmy up hands and feet to be-filigree appendages and add glamour to rock, paper, scissors tournaments. All locations except the Moreno Valley Mall and Temecula Mall locations cut and color hair, a useful service for pretending to be one's own evil twin.
Sola Salon Studios' network of locations across the country attracts top-level talent by giving stylists free rein to dictate their hours, decorate their own salon space, and keep the money they earn. This freedom fills each location with a cheerful, positive energy that helps fuel stylists' ability to transform outer appearances with haircuts, conditioning, color treatments, and other salon services.
