Licensed aesthetician Alanna knows that no two complexions are quite the same. The studio in which she practices embodies her belief in custom, one-on-one treatments; every client who enters its cozy confines can expect Alanna’s undivided attention as she develops treatments to meet their specific needs. As her training encompasses skincare, aromatherapy, massage, and reiki, Alanna draws from an extensive bank of knowledge to heal weary bodies and revivify dull skin.
Chae Organics skincare products aid her in the latter task. With these potent serums in hand, she sets to work erasing wrinkles and removing the stamps that her clients sometimes rely on to mail themselves to the studio. Among her custom skincare solutions, microdermabrasion, phototherapy treatments, and facials exfoliate dead cells and resurface youthful skin. Even after treatments, Alanna will gladly take the time to recommend products to help maintain a radiant and healthy skin tone.
Just blocks away from the Pacific Ocean lies a fountain of youth, or so patrons of Tonic Salon & Spa III would have you believe. Within the salon and spa’s warm, beige-colored walls, the staff employ products made with organic ingredients from Budapest during spa treatments that purify pores and leave skin looking better than the day it arrived in the mail. In addition to facials, beauticians also perform waxing, sunless tanning, and five varieties of massage services.
The salon staff also wields scissors and hair products to untangle and shape locks into popular styles. Partial and full coloring services touch up seasonal looks or spy disguises by adding highlights and new pigments to layers of hair, and conditioning treatments harness the power of tea tree and Moroccanoil products to strengthen hair.

Mother. Community activist. Cosmetologist. Hair stylist. Kimberly Locatelli has artfully filled all four of these roles throughout her life, combining the latter two to found Beauty Naturally. A strong believer in eschewing chemicals for natural beauty practices whenever possible, Kimberly delivers lavish salon and spa treatments with a preference for environmentally responsible products instead of those overloaded with chemicals or squeeze cheese. Throughout the day, she can be found hard at work snipping unkempt tresses into chic haircuts, sculpting eyebrows into defined arches, or soothing bodies with deep-tissue massages.
Certified massage therapist Christine Esler specializes in sports medicine, so she fits right in among the athletes at Bike Dojo, the spin class studio in which she works. One need not be an athlete to benefit from her treatments, though. Her Swedish, deep-tissue, and shiatsu techniques relax tense muscles or biceps that won't unclench from a strongman pose or a guy holding up the humidifier pose. To ease the path of her healing hands, Christine daubs skin with her own signature blend of aromatherapeutic oils. Lavender-scented or unscented oil are also available.
