Aesthetician Danielle Kriege long believed in the transformative power of holistic bodywork and medicine. Her interest in whole-body treatments and alternative skincare led to her training as a master reiki therapist, and she continues to hone her cross-disciplinary expertise as the owner of White Lotus Wellness Center.

Now, Danielle bolsters the mental and physical tranquility of her clients with treatments for the body and skin. Detoxifying herbal body wraps and ionic foot baths evict pent-up poisons from their bodily hiding places, and an infrared-sauna treatment helps rid the body of cellulite. Her reiki sessions break up traffic jams in the body?s energy pathways, targeting pressure points along the feet that correspond to systems throughout the body.

In addition to healing inner trouble spots, Danielle also targets outer issues with custom beauty treatments. Custom facials and skin peels exfoliate the body?s all-important outer layer, and gentle brow-tinting and facial waxing treatments rein in unruly hair around the face's most expressive areas. In addition to her everyday service, Danielle helps clients prep for their biggest moments with bridal and event makeup packages.

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.

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.

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.
