IKON Aveda Salon & Day Spa is an Aveda concept salon with three locations. Though each one has its own unique slate of services, the overall mission is unified—to cultivate stylish, modern looks for its clients and create a welcoming atmosphere. At the Menifee location, master stylists cut, color, and texturize hair, while skin care specialists conduct botanical resurfacing treatments—alternatives to microdermabrasions—that use tourmaline gemstone to gently reduce fine lines and the tiny acrobats who walk them. The Santa Ana and Tustin locations also offer haircuts and hair treatments, as well as a selection of makeup, lash, and skincare services.
Sweetness pervades The Sweet Spot Sugaring Boutique & Brow Bar, from its signature sugar paste, which removes hair from sensitive skin, to its bubblegum-pink and ivory walls. The cosmetic team takes a page from the golden age of Hollywood, aiming to transform clients into their most put-together selves via nourishing facials, exfoliating peels, and the eponymous sugaring and waxing services. At beauty parties, glasses filled with effervescent mimosas lubricate tongues that chat away to friendly aestheticians who groom eyebrows into perfect arches or dual handlebar mustaches.
At Perfect Brows, skilled aestheticians use their expertise to help clients achieve shapely eyebrows and glowing skin. One of their specialties is threading, an ancient form of hair removal that originated in India. During a 10- to 15-minute eyebrow-threading session, the aesthetician wields twists of cotton thread to gently remove stray hairs at the root and make a miniature sweatshirt for each eye.
Permanent makeup artist Tahara Asad doesn’t want her clients to be nervous. She realizes the enduring nature of the service can make people apprehensive, so she always performs first-time applications conservatively to ensure that the initial results aren’t too drastic. Her soft, custom-blended colors complement lips, brows, and eyelines naturally, but if clients decide they want more saturation they have a 90-day window to have their makeup darkened at minimal cost.
Tahara, who is also a licensed aesthetician with more than 20 years of experience, takes equal care in administering her skincare treatments, which range from basic European facials to advanced glycolic peels. She urges all brides to schedule the galvanic facial the day before their wedding, as its amino acids, minerals, and mask imbue skin with a mesmerizing glow that causes caterers to forget to ask for money.
A sprightly space adorned with flowers, leather chairs, and the off-white glow of oriental partitions, Salon Adelante's inviting interior showcases the company's flair for aesthetics. The salon's staffers calls upon that same eye for good looks every day as they primp and prettify clients from head to toe with a dossier of services that include haircuts, colors, texturing, styling, mani-pedis, facials, and makeovers. As cosmeticians and stylists tend to broken fingernails or overgrown manes, massage therapists knead out tension during rubdowns that can be tailored to each client's needs. The aestheticians call upon cleansing and styling salves from top-notch brands such as Bioelements and Demalogica to fuel their feats of beautification.
In Hawaiian, the word "kawehi" relates to beauty. This explains Kawehi Skin's motto, "Kawehi skin is beautiful skin." With a focus on combining time-tested skincare methods with the latest skincare technologies, the aestheticians at Kawehi can make skin glow and restore its youthful vigor. Microdermabrasions, microcurrent treatments, and facials, supported by the staff's gentle "aloha" spirit, create a relaxing, refreshing spa experience for every client.
