A lot can be learned in a decade. Many of Les Ciseaux's stylists, nail technicians, massage therapists, and skincare specialists have been with the salon for more than 10 years. They've traveled to Paris, London, New York, and Los Angeles to broaden their skills and perfect new techniques, and collectively they speak 10 languages. As they work, they tend to clients' locks, nails, and pores with Les Ciseaux products, which are botanically enriched, cruelty-free, and stored in genie-approved bottles.
Suna of Suna Salon & Spa has culled beauty secrets from all over the world, holding aesthetic licenses in Japan, Italy, France, Germany, and the United States. She voyaged from the shores of Istanbul to the wild, unexfoliated beaches of America 25 years ago to establish her first salon. Over the decades, Suna has gathered around her an elite team of beauticians with a range of expertise and an arsenal of quality products.
Her staff brightens nail treatments with Shellac and OPI polishes and deepens massages with hot stones. Stylists keep cranial shrubs in tiptop shape with Schwarzkopf Igora hair color and conditioning products from Moroccanoil. Suna herself specializes in threading, the ancient Middle Eastern art of removing hair with nothing but a strand of cotton and an elaborate system of cantilevers.
Dr. Melinda Lacerna realized she had an interest in plastic surgery on volunteer mission trips, where she was able to see how plastic surgeons could help those less fortunate. When she’s not traveling to places like the Philippines and Ghana to treat children with cleft lip or skin burns, she works at LA Plastic Surgery and provides the same skillful, compassionate care. Her treatments include plastic surgery of the face and body as well as less invasive beauty treatments, such as chemical peels, European facials, and permanent make-up.
Inside Fresh's clean, modern space, beauty buffs clarify complexions and turn simple strands into silken masterpieces. With an eye toward the latest trends, each professional snipster brings top-notch tutelage to each haircut, applying lessons learned from the Aveda and L'Oréal academies, Jacques Dessange, and other renowned teachers, collaborating with their client to create manageable, eye-catching looks that can withstand any hectic lifestyle or attack by dryer sheet. After a thorough pampering from top-of-the-line products such as Kérastase Paris or Unite Eurotherapy, manes will emerge from the sleek, white-washed salon looking as fresh as a spring chicken but with considerably better hair.
Before each appointment, BU Salon's staff helps clients decompress by serving them a glass of wine or a cup of tea. After guests settle in, a hairstylist, aesthetician, massage therapist, or nail technician leads them away toward their booked service—perhaps having their eyes accentuated with a set of Xtreme Lashes extensions or maybe a cut and style with Kérastase products. The studio envelops visitors in a light, breezy atmosphere where floors of antique-looking wood and terra-cotta tiles hold up free-standing mirrors and modern salon chairs. As one of the few retailers of Jamie Jewellery London, the salon also houses a collection of adornments popular with celebrities such as Kyle Minogue and Sienna Miller.
For owner Holly Sharpe, pampering clients is more than just making someone look good. "I love more than anything that I can turn someone's day around by helping them to relax and let go of the stresses of daily life..." she says. At Shore Rejuvenation Day Spa, she taps into this compassionate drive, as well as her extensive training, to perform a wide range of aesthetic services, including hydrating facials, seaweed wraps, waxing, and eyelash tinting. Even though she's created a soothing environment inside the spa, she also offers mobile services for clients.
