Between working, working up an appetite, and working out, it can be hard for a busy person to work on their skin. That?s why Girl on the Go! Night Spa stays open until 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, and until 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, offering beauty services that cater to the packed schedules of nine-to-fivers, students, and London Guards prone to acne. The unique, one-on-one appointment system ensures each client commands the entire spa to themselves, soaking in the peace and quiet as skin luxuriates in hydrating facials and antioxidant-rich body treatments. Despite its feminine moniker, the spa also tailors skin treatments and waxing sessions to suit the needs of guys on the go, and its reliance on organic products from Epicuren, Ilike Organic, Yonka, and Lucrece keeps services accessible to eco-conscious complexions.
Located in the East Village, Flirt, a light and open street level salon, makes customers feel relaxed and confident in their salon choice. Joy runs the tidy and pretty salon as one of the original owners along this East Village block. A forward thinking, Bumble and bumble establishment, Joy and her hand-picked stylists, use the products and training first made famous in New York over 30 years ago. The salon is a treat for the senses with rococo mirror frames grounded by earthy, brown leather seating, and touches of chrome riding above the wood floor. The salon offers cuts for both men and women, and also does highlights, hair extensions and Brazilian blowouts.
When it comes to beauty, Ultimate Lash and Brow sets out to succeed where others have failed. Certified eyelash extension technicians free clients of mascara's clumping, smudging, and running issues by granting them with a full fan of dark, dramatic, and semi-permanent extensions instead. To turn back the clock on disastrous eyebrow waxing appointments, aesthetician Christiane Gendrey calls on her experience beautifying celebrities to carefully tweeze brows back into shape, sometimes even devising a comprehensive monthly regimen to grow back missing hairs. And the studio's facial services don't pull any punches?rather than using the ineffective techniques of so-called pampering facials, the experts target stubborn skin problems and treat faces to deep exfoliation, helping bring back a healthy rate of cell turnover and create a softer, more even complexion.
One of the first rock ‘n’ roll barbershops, Floyd’s 99 Barbershop combines an electrifying atmosphere with reasonable prices. The East Village location’s corner storefront is rimmed with comfortable seating and has been providing San Diegans with top-of-the-line hair services for almost five years. There are about a dozen stations behind a tall reception counter plastered with bold graphics, and rock posters are splashed across walls that resound with a matching sound track. Appointments are encouraged, but all of the select stylists are well trained and will provide all clients with an excellent cut. The salon/barbershop is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, except Sundays.
Customers who walk into the urban setting of Glo Salon immediately know that artists are at work within. The entrance is through an industrial, rolling door, and inside, exposed beams and original brick walls are complimented by contemporary art and glowing chandeliers. Each stylist is an independent booth renter with different expertise, but most offer haircuts, highlights, straightening and extensions. One of Glo’s more well-known coiffeurs, Chance Salaz, is skilled in hair coloring and a pioneer in extensions, having crafted a micro-bonding technique that gives clients enduring tresses with little stress and no breakage. Walk-ins are accepted, but due to high volume, men and women are encouraged to contact the salon for appointments.
