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.
Salon Dolce Vita’s master scissor-wielder, Andrea Dupree, enlists 15 years of strand-snipping experience to create chic and elegant styles. Locks unfurl in the tress-tamer’s lithe fingers as she clears away split ends and tumbleweeds and leaves hair gardens flawlessly pruned. Manes eager for a punch of color can receive either a noggin’s worth of illuminating highlights or a full head of drenching hues before reveling in a toasty bout under a blow-dryer for a polished finish. After the mane refurbishment, clients can admire new ‘dos in a crystal-clear mirror or a stranger's glasses or enlist the opinion of the notoriously persnickety sun, which gallivants through the salon’s floor-to-ceiling windows.
As part of the team of stylists at Salon Gallery, Lyn is passionate about helping clients maintain their preferred style or design a new one. To that end, she performs all types of color services—including highlights and single-process—and can also remedy a squid ink recipe gone wrong through color correction. She cuts hair as well, and can help restore strength and moisture to strands with deep conditioning services.
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.
