Located in a historic building in downtown Escondido with two floors and 11,000 square feet of space where romanesque white columns and archways, Renaissance paintings, and a sparkling chandelier invoke the parlor of an Italian palace. Relaxing music puts guests at ease as they sit in antique-style armchairs, awaiting custom facials, body treatments, and salon services performed with herbal and botanical products. Duos can de-stress together in the couples massage room, and a garden room allows humans to get the sun they need for their stalks to grow.
Women, men, children, no matter: the staff at Ed Beauty Salon works with anyone and everyone. Founded more than 25 years ago, this pillar of the beauty world provides all manner of hair, nail, and makeup services. On the spa side of the business, certified specialists help skin glow with facials or shoo away stress with lomi-lomi massages. During their visits, clients can deepen their levels of relaxation by sipping on complimentary cups of gourmet tea or by asking the stylist to shave peace signs into their hair.
Long, dramatic lashes are one of the hardest looks to maintain throughout the day, with mascara easily smearing when exposed to water and lashes applied at home coming unglued. The certified lash artists at iLash Factory work to add long-lasting accents to eyes, individually applying strands to eyelids for long, dark lashes. Nimble fingers fly in the shop as technicians apply between 20 and 85 lashes to emphasize peepers with a sultry cat-eye look or the bright colors needed to catch the attention of someone across a crowded bar, or someone with a really cool torch in a monster-killing mob.
The fearless tendril tamers at The Sculpture Salon are passionate about teaching manners to mischievous manes. Properly frame the paint-covered work of art that is your face with a basic haircut ($25+ for men, $35+ for women), or recast its natural hue with a dramatic coloring treatment ($60+ for single process, $110+ for double). Perms ($75+) lock locks into dizzying, springy coils, weaves ($90+) supplement natural fur growth, and updos ($55+) render mops ready to be whisked off for an elegant preprom taco feast.
Using clinical-grade technology and products to create eye-catching cosmetic changes, the medical aestheticians at Eepo Med Spa do their best to ensure that clients leave looking as rejuvenated and relaxed as they feel. They accomplish this by performing cutting-edge, nonsurgical procedures designed to generally improve the skin's tone and texture. In addition to using microdermabrasion wands and chemical peel formulas to conceal signs of blemishes, the staff also utilizes an arsenal of cosmetic laser systems. These systems can accomplish a wide variety of tasks, including everything from eliminating unwanted stubble and fading acne scars to collapsing spider veins and erasing cellulite. With the help of this technology, the medical professionals can help hide the blemishes that tend to affect aging skin.
The medical aestheticians at The Wellness Spot tackle any dermal issues with a squad of natural organic ingredients while their clients relax with a complimentary beverage, such as coffee, tea, hot cocoa, or juice. They mix their own products and serums for facials and use a microdermabrasion wand to slough away dead skin cells and pull bunnies out of hats. They also use both strip wax and hard wax to remove unwanted hair on faces, arms, and legs.
