Just blocks away from the Pacific Ocean lies a fountain of youth, or so patrons of Tonic Salon & Spa 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.
Armed with more than a decade of experience, Be Love Skin Spa’s aesthetician blends pampering knowhow from past experience as a massage therapist with a thorough knowledge of the latest skin-refining techniques. A variety of treatments—such as waxing that whisks away unwanted hair or oxygen facials that bolster moisture reserves—revivify skin surfaces. The spa also offers complexion-smoothing microdermabrasion treatments, which use medical-grade ClearFX machines to obscure signs of aging including wrinkles, age spots, and disco-era glitter.
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.
With five years of experience, Jennifer Cordoza at Rumours Salon & Spa goes the extra mile to ensure each visitor has an experience that is both personalized and pampering. With extensive training in precision cutting and coloring, Cordoza uses consultations to create the look her clients need. To match her beautifying hair, skin, and nail services, the salon includes paraffin wraps, and beverages, including fruit-infused water, premium wine, and beer. She tops off each nourishing facial with a mask customized to their clients’ skin tone, and also performs manicures, pedicures, and massages that incorporate aromatic essential oils. Face-framing highlights and coloring treatments enliven strands with vibrant hues, while men’s styling services include steamed facial wraps and specialized products that fight premature hair loss and toupee-snatching seagulls.
