Owner Sherry Behzadi helms Charisma Salon & Spa, drawing from more than two decades of experience in the beauty industry. Sherry’s dedication to customer service has garnered notice from her clients, but has also been recognized by newspapers including the Capistrano Dispatch, which awarded it the 2009 Golden Horseshoe prize for Best Salon/Barbershop.
But accolades from the press aren't what drive Sherry and her team. Instead, they focus on providing their clients with styles that complement their natural beauty. To do this, they turn to a stock of more than 20 beauty brands, including Redken, Schwarzkopf, Great Lengths, and Brazilian Blowout, to straighten strands, add length, and highlight locks. The fashion-forward studio also customizes skincare treatments with Dermalogica products, which leave complexions more hydrated than a water bottle hooked up to an IV.
At Off The Vine Day Spa, trained aestheticians offer permanent makeup, in which they simulate brow hairs with ultra-fine strokes and give eyes a sexy look with tapered lines. The spa also offers a menu of other spa services, including massage, organic facials, body waxing, and body wraps. The staff's talents even extend to paramedical services such as areola re-pigmentation, corrective pigment camouflage, and collagen-induction therapy.
Brook Owens works with her clients to create new styles for special occasions or everyday life. The expert stylist specializes in blondes, and uses the Scruples Blazing Highlights system to add dimension to hair. Ms. Owens has also trained in many straightening and smoothing techniques.
At Royal Skin Therapy, owner and resident aesthetician Zianna incorporates relaxing aromatherapy and essential oils into all customized facials, which end with massages for scalps, feet, or upper backs. Other beautifying services available include tinting for brows and lashes, and waxing for men and women alike. Using pigments free of iron-oxide, Zianna can also apply permanent eyeliner, brow fills, and lip color that won't fade for at least 5 years and that far outlast earlier forms of permanent makeup, such as rose petals superglued to your cheeks.
With nearly 30 years of professional styling experience to her name, Judi Jorge has outlasted the flash-in-the-pan styles of the '80s, '90s, and onward, sculpting timeless hairdos for women, men, and children. Her services run the gamut from simple cuts and conditioning to full highlights, flat-iron styles, and keratin smoothening treatments.
White Lotus Day Spa encourages tranquility and rejuvenation through soothing body treatments, waxing, spray-tanning, and organic, all-natural skincare services. But it also encourages beauty by being beautiful itself. The spa?s front area lets in loads of light, thanks to a curved wall that?s made up of floor-to-ceiling windows as well as ornamental fixtures hanging from the ceiling and candles flecking the finely stained wood cabinetry. Blue and brown walls backdrop pottery, which evokes the beauty being sculpted beyond. With more than 30 types of natural chemical peels, the highly trained aestheticians can help keep skin in the best possible health, whether the client?s concern is overcoming hyperpigmentation or reversing the signs of aging. Customized massages, reflexology, bamboo chi infusion therapy, and foot detoxes help clients feel their best without sprawling out on the area rug to revel in its softness in front of the other guests.
