The accomplished staffers at Della Stella Salon & Spa perform beautifying services that span the human body, from elevated updos to relaxing spa pedicures. Prior to appointments, patrons can get lost in magazines, books, or free WiFi while sipping complimentary drinks in a waiting lounge. Sleek black wood shelving and muted pastels form the salon's backdrop, and plush burgundy seating allows comfortable perusal of the salon's magazine collection. Victorian chandeliers and ornately framed mirrors cast an eclectic vibe on the salon’s otherwise modern interior, much like wearing a tea gown over a pair of jeggings.
Angela Lark Landy didn?t learn about sugar compounds in a baking class; rather, she was introduced to them at a skincare convention after years of frustration with shaving and waxing. When a specialist from Alexandria Professional offered Angela a hair removal alternative that would suit her sensitive skin, she jumped at the opportunity, not knowing that it would soon change her life. After gaining her aesthetician?s license and certification as a sugaring practitioner, she opened The Sweetest Skin Co. in Stevenson Ranch to treat clients with sugaring hair removal and other skincare services. When opening a second location, Angela asked another Alexandria Professional-certified aesthetician Andrea Apisa to run the newest The Sweetest Skin Co. in Thousand Oaks.
Using an all-natural Alexandria Professional compound of water, lemon juice, and sugar, Angela and Andrea remove hair from the root while simultaneously nourishing the skin and keeping tattoos from getting dehydrated. In addition to smoothing down bodies with hair removal, they also treat clients with various skincare services such as facials, back exfoliations, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels. All of their treatments are powered by professional-grade products from brands such as glo-therapeutics, Alexandria Professional, Bionet, Enspri, and Spa Girl.
Massage therapist John Rowinski abides by the Goldilocks method: If one massage is too gentle and another too firm, then the one in between should be just right. This approach led him to create the "deep Swedish" modality, a middle ground between the flowing kneads of a standard Swedish massage and the highly focused pressure of deep-tissue work. His clients are far from limited to these three options, however. Each of John's massages is a custom and distinct experience, and he channels more than 20 years of practice?conducted at spas, medical centers, and athletic venues?to inform his services.
His pampering menu also highlights hot-stone massages, which coax tension from muscles by warming them with ocean basalt stones. His prenatal massages allow expectant mothers to recline on their sides, propped against a specialized body pillow that optimizes comfort. Though it is not classified as a massage, his lymphatic-drainage therapy does involve manual manipulation and aims to enhance the natural flow of lymph fluid throughout the body for increased well-being and relaxing "whoosh" sounds. John's team was was recently bolstered by a new addition?Diane has over 7 years of experience in medical settings, and she offers Swedish and deep-tissue massages for private clientele. John can also accommodate any couples massage requests by providing both male and female therapists.
Regardless of whether its guests are seeking help with their hair or skin, Brow Bar Spa is ready to accommodate each client's particular needs. Founder Angela Palmer opened the spa with five years experience as a licensed aesthetician under her belt, as well as familiarity with medical-grade cosmetic treatments. In addition to performing traditional facials, she also offers exfoliating chemical peels and therapeutic-grade doses of oxygen to improve the skin's tone and texture.
Other services include airbrushing, which provides a UV-free alternative to tanning, and hair-removal treatments that make use of chocolate-scented waxes to uproot unwanted stubble and create a more pleasant experience. Amidst all of these options, the spa's stylists also offer their services, creating trendy hairdos by adding color, texture, or layers to existing styles.

The skilled stylist are consistently on top of their game for special occasions, such as weddings, proms, and quinceañeras. C Salon carves out a piece of its menu specifically for those services—bridesmaid upstyles and bride trial runs, to name a couple. A couple of C Salon's stylists even have experience working for film and television, since it's crucial that the cords running from the camera to the monitor look keratin-treatment-level shiny.
