HighBrow Beauty?s minimalist and modern d?cor mirrors the staff?s approach to beauty. This approach is rooted in simplicity; facials utilize all-natural products, while waxing and sugaring make skin smooth and sleek, like the high-resolution display of a freshly sandpapered TV monitor. HighBrow's waxing prowess wowed enough clients to earn it a place among San Diego A-List's 2013 "Best Waxing" finalists.

When Andrea Kane first opened her massage practice she was doling out deep-tissue massages to athletes and chronic-pain sufferers from inside her own home. Today, her business has grown, expanding to a service menu that now includes Andrea's other specialties including chemical peels, waxing, and sugaring treatments. A natural alternative to waxing, sugaring is gentle enough for all skin types, and, unlike some salons that reserve the service only for women, Andrea will gladly book hair-removal treatments for men or lifelike mannequins.

Sara Elizabeth Skincare & Nail Boutique founder Sara Elizabeth Kuite has traveled the country to build her acute knowledge of bodily betterments, studying specialized skincare in New York City with celebrity facialist Ling Chan and scaling the Rocky Mountains to learn Japanese kobido massage techniques under sensei master Shogo Mochizuki. Today, she fuses Eastern ideas with Western technology in her current practice, which places an emphasis on deep healing and prevention of unnecessary epidermal wear. Her highly trained eyes carefully scan skin to spot specific conditions and create a personalized skincare regimen for each individual, and she gives each patient the time and attention they need to learn how to use products correctly and finally set the clocks on their VCRs.

Celery green walls and white overstuffed chairs provide a tranquil setting for all services, which include everything from anti-aging, hydrating, or exfoliating facials to hair removal with sugar paste or blue chamomile wax. Clients awaiting treatment may soothe sore eyes by browsing through a boutique stocked with raw vegan skincare products from brands such as Astara and Priori and high-powered CoffeeBerry antioxidant, or wander over to the elixir bar to nourish bodies and wilted houseplants with phytonutrient-rich beverages.

With its start in haircare more than a quarter-century ago, Model Call Salon continues to pamper clients with hair-and-beauty treatments fueled by brand-name products such as Number 4 Hair, Bumble and bumble, L'Oréal Professionnel, and Unite. Each service in the salon or spa starts off with a one-on-one consultation during which clients discuss what they want their hair to look like, their skin to feel like, or their eyebrows to furrow like. Hairstylists at both locations boast extra certifications beyond their years of hands-on experience and participate in continuing education to stay current in hair-design trends. When it comes to spa treatments, aestheticians improve skin with paraffin treatments, microdermabrasion, and facials, and perform tanning services to help clients walk out feeling more confident than when they arrived.
