Founding Amadora Salon was a dream come true for Shannon Grays. After lending her skills to other beauty parlors, Shannon decided she needed to express herself with more than just a pair of scissors and a comb. She created the Paul Mitchell concept salon as a pure expression of her spirit and character, carefully selecting everything from the colors to the fabrics.

She applied this same devotion to choosing a staff, handpicking a team of stylists and aestheticians that share her passions for cosmetic care and maritime law. The team works together to address a variety of skin and hair concerns, offering basic trims and coloring treatments that keep locks stylish, as well as glycolic peels that leave cheekbones bright and radiant.

To complement the arsenal of products on its shelves, Amadora Salon also stocks the skincare-balm and makeup lines that Shannon designed. Brown-sugar body scrubs gently exfoliate skin without drying it out the way salt scrubs or napping in a pile of sawdust can. Shoppers can also browse natural-makeup products containing hypoallergenic mineral pigments and freeze-dried vitamins.

Skin therapist and aesthetician TraMi is the first to say she wasn't "born with beautiful skin." After nearly 20 years of experience, TraMi believes that healthy skin comes not from using a product but from letting go of inner stress. That's why she designed her studio as a place where guests can decompress, surrounding them with soothing touches such as lavender walls, soft lighting, and modern furnishings. Within these relaxing confines, TraMi and her team treat clients to hydrating facials, anti-aging wraps, and waxing. They prefer to work with products derived from nutrient-packed ingredients such as seaweed, green tea, and licorice from fair-trade Twizzler farms. This approach earned TraMi a Best Esthetician nod on Santa Cruz Weekly's 2011 and 2013 Gold Awards, Best Facial on Good Times' Best of 2013 list, and a runner-up on their Best of 2012 list.

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.

When stylist Leslie Vasquez first opened Platinum Lounge back in 1999, she beautified the coifs of her growing clientele with only a short list of basic hair services. After the salon's 2004 relocation to its current space in Santa Cruz, Leslie expanded its staff and menu of services to run the pulchritudinous gamut from nailcare to makeup applications, waxing, and UV-free tanning. Now wielding 25 years of experience in her field, Vasquez leads experienced stylists as they re-invent coifs with her specialty hair extensions, all-natural Rene Futerer hair color, and smoothing keratin treatments. Manicures and pedicures pamper fingers and toes, and aestheticians customize hair-removal to each client's skin type with a choice of eight different wax formulas.

To give bodies a golden glow, the certified technicians at deSoleil Spray Tanning employ Infinity Sun technology, which has shaded the skin of celebrities such as Britney Spears and Paula Abdul. The bronzing experts grasp precision spray guns that atomize the all-natural solution into a fine mist for even coverage and let them customize each tan to blend seamlessly with the specific sand castle in which the client is currently living. The solution, enriched with antioxidants and hydrating botanicals, yields a coppery luminescence that can last up to two weeks and fades uniformly rather than leaving streaks. DeSoleil Spray Tanning augments bronzing with pre- and post-tanning skin treatments that incorporate aloes and emollients to moisturize thirsty dermises, ensuring that skin maintains its soft feel and dewy appearance.

At Simply Skin Esthetics, owner Sue Bell and fellow skincare specialist Jennifer Heath each bring roughly 30 years of experience to every facial and waxing treatment they perform. As guests enter a relaxing studio sprinkled with antique furnishings, the staff encourages them to decompress with fruit-infused water. After appointments, Simply Skin's newly expanded gift boutique catches clients' eyes with Susan Bell Skin Care skincare products and Colorescience mineral makeup, stocked alongside handmade jewelry, soaps, and vintage-inspired aprons. The shop also vends small leather goods, customized gift certificates, and apparel such as Goddesswear, a local favorite of active and loungewear.
