As a practitioner of the Aveda arts, Kriza Aveda Salon Spa stocks its shelves, cosmetic counters, and salon stations with natural, botanical serums and salves. To pamper clients, the staff peppers each service with luxurious flair—stylists treat guests to a head, neck, shoulder, and hand massage with every haircut, before touching up makeup for ladies. Between appointments, they’ll even trim up bangs to keep cuts stylish or keep head hair from weaving itself into eyelashes. In addition to applying makeup for brides or for special occasions, makeup artists also consult with clients to teach them how to enhance their features and pick the shades that suit their particular skin tone during lessons. Plant-based facials leave skin radiant, diminish wrinkles, or address acne. In every location, the decor mirrors the commitment to naturalism with a light, airy feel, characterized by mostly white walls and plenty of mirrors and glass.
For more than a decade, color specialist and master stylist Silvia has keep a creative watch over her team of dedicated stylists at Encino Concept Salon. Her more than 30 years of experience and international training at London Hair Academy has honed her keen aesthetic eye, which oversees a salon floor buzzing with stylists as they twirl, trim, and dye strands with botanically based products. The Bio Ionic hair-straightening system also furnishes salon services, where stylists carefully put hair through a process that aims to smooth out strands plagued by frizzes and flyaways. Hair extensions add length to manes with clip-ons of 100% human hair, and customers looking to subtract locks can recline during a waxing or threading session as a technician carefully removes unwanted hairs twisting and twirling into complicated math problems. Encino Concept Salon?s menu also promotes whole-body well-being with a refreshing European facial and spa pedicure.
The professionals at Moonlight Skin Cares kick the natural skin-cell process into high gear with their microdermabrasion treatments and facials. Instead of waiting for dead skin cells to slough off by themselves, microdermabrasion gently abrades the topmost layer of skin and uses vacuum suction or tiny black holes to get rid of the dead cells. The body then quickly replaces those cells with fresh healthy ones. Custom enzyme peels also achieve the same exfoliating effect, and both treatments make the studio's cleansers and moisturizers more effective.
Just like its namesake, the interior of Charm Beauty Salon glows golden. With an updated-yet-retro feel, modular couches sit opposite of styling stations separated by tall pillars, where stylists smooth locks with Brazilian blowouts and shear new 'dos via exacting snips. Tucked away in private rooms, aestheticians de-fuzz physiques with a range of waxing services, from eyebrows to stubborn thigh-brows. Meanwhile, using products from Yonka and G.M. Collin, hydrating and exfoliating facials leave mugs fresh and smooth.
