With 13 years of experience, a certified massage therapist digs deep into clients' weary muscles to draw out stress and re-limber stiff joints. Sessions lasting 60 to 90 minutes knead backs weary of shouldering too many small children or demanding monarchs, stroke necks stiff from wearing too many layers of formal collars, and relieve hip and knee pain. Massage techniques can also be applied in attempts to treat tennis elbow, fibromyalgia, plantar fasciitis, and recurring flashbacks to awkward clown-school graduation ceremonies.
Capistrano Barbershop's founder and namesake, Faraj, conjures the feeling of an old-fashioned barbershop by accenting his business's façade with a spiraling barber's pole and trimming men's hair with a straight razor. During haircuts, coifs are clipped into traditional, contemporary, and neoclassic styles, and a hot-lather shave cleans up ears and sideburns. If needed, Faraj also trims rogue strands making a break from the conformity of eyebrows, noses, and ears. Straight-razor edgings kick off with a hot lather before straight razors graze facial planes, hone neck and beard lines, and leave cheeks as smooth as Prince talking himself out of a moving violation.
House of Ebbitt’s attentive beauty mavens burnish bodies with a slew of waxing services and augment hair hue with coloring treatments. Exterminate vagrant leg hairs with a full-leg waxing, or sculpt and smoothen the face with a preening of the chin, upper lip, and eyebrows. During a Brazilian wax, one of these seasoned staffers shellacs follicular mongrels with Lycon blue hard wax, a comfortable alternative to the common hair-expunging materials of duct tape and piranhas. Those attending to head tresses undergo a personalized consultation and receive topographical maps of hair growth before clippings commence. Based on personal cosmetic desires and the advice of artisan shear-smiths, styling takes place after privileged locks are treated to a partial highlighting.
Solace Salon and Day Spa and its staff of experienced aestheticians give clients a plethora of pampering with a haircut ($55), a hair-conditioning treatment and blow-dry ($35), and a maintenance facial with AHA exfoliation ($95). The facial polishes up the pores and smoothes out scraggly epidermal regions as the AHA exfoliation stunts acne aspirations lurking just below the surface of the skin. Let Solace's accredited aestheticians and stylists bring bliss to your body with high-quality products, all while you lounge in the salon/spa's soothing and intimate interiors. The salon is currently shipping off its hair clippings so they can be made into mats to help soak up the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Window decals of traditional barbershop poles signal the entrance to Kisner’s Barber Salon, where licensed and certified hairstylists cut, color, and perm hair seven days a week. After sitting down for an initial consultation, men, women, and children can add new dimensions to their looks with a sleek cut and style. The salon’s services don’t stop at the scalp, however. Nourishing facials infuse skin with essential moisturizers and professional massages melt away stress with gentle strokes. Thankfully, none of that stress will come from being dissatisfied with one’s haircut; clients may return within two days for an alteration or a confidence-boosting compliment, both free of charge.
