The skilled aestheticians and therapists at L'Atelier Day Spa work sore muscles, wax unwanted hairs, and unclog pores with a mélange of spa services. A one-hour back or chest wax for men ($55+) makes shirts feel suddenly roomier, and a one-hour New Brazilian wax for females ($75+) allows a waxee to wear even the skimpiest string bikini. The organic 45-minute buff-and-shine pedicure ($40) includes a cuticle trim, nail shaping, and massage to remove calluses and make paws as smooth as a freshly glazed bowling pin. An age-defying and disappointingly non-edible one-hour Firm facial ($105) plumps and tightens up skin by slathering it with a blend of marshmallow root, acai berry and other fruit antioxidants.
Under the new management of Sondra Lee and Nickolas Jones, Tonic Salon & Spa renews and rejuvenates with an array of salon and spa services. Stylists trim tresses, apply makeup, or add new color using Pureology products as clients follow along in mirrors of various sizes, shapes, and opinions of who's fairest. Team members also perform skincare services powered by the Organics skincare line and massages that send much-needed care packages of oxygen to corporeal outliers.
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.
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.
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 and incubating aliens. 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.
Working inside Cocoon Hair Studio, Araceli Verar begins each hair appointment with a complimentary consultation. The client and stylist discuss haircut options that complement the client's face shape and attract the fewest number of Mylar balloons. Araceli then cuts strands into flattering looks, adding in highlights, touching up grays, or smoothing curls at the behest of each client. Though Cocoon Hair Studio offers a preset menu of services, the salon is always open to other requests.
