Owners Chad and Amy Dahmn and the ace salon and spa specialists at Escape Luxury Salon & Day Spa have built up an impressive list of services aimed at relaxing and beautifying clients. Personnel sit down with patrons to determine which treatments best suit their needs, from hairstyling and highlighting to nail enhancement, exfoliating facials, or muscle-soothing massages. During treatments, they use high-quality products from brands such as Epicuren and OPI, which are available for purchase. The salon’s view of a nearby harbor, the Ventura mountains, and hiking hypnotists ruffling leaf piles into heart shapes contributes to the serene air that permeates the space.
The aestheticians at Blu Salon not only gussy up guests from head to toe with a range of beautifying services but also go the extra mile to ensure that clients are as relaxed as possible. After soothing skin and remedying epidermal maladies with glycolic peels and a variety of facials, the relaxation experts complement face-refurbishing treatments with shiatsu massages that catapult sore bodies onto cloud nine—or into the neighbor’s backyard jacuzzi. While clients yield their hands and feet to the skilled manicurist Shantel, they snuggle into a tension-taming massage chair and unload their stresses. After nail techs finish dolling up digits, they also can perform a foot massage upon request. The salon’s menu of services rounds out with eyebrow, lip, and forearm waxing as well as UV-tanning sessions.
Talented technicians at Combs & Company Hair and Nail Salon groom fingers and toes with customized treatments designed to make clients look and feel refreshed. The spa manicure prettifies finger landscapes with a trim, file, and professional polish, and paws soften after a soothing soak and gentle massage during the 45-minute spa pedicure. For shellac manicures, experts coat nails with a colorful and protective mirror finish capable of reflecting Medusa's gaze for up to 14 days. The hour-long deluxe pedicure tacks on an exfoliating treatment to slough away dead skin cells and cement shoes from the outer layers and a callus treatment targets thickened areas of skin. Hot towels thaw frozen feet, providing heated relaxation to a calming foot massage.
The skillful nail technicians at T’ani’s Spa pamper feet and hands with homemade lotions, tension-sloughing massages, and splashes of colorful polish during a relaxing mani-pedi. Paws soften and soak in a warm, salt-infused footbath to kick off the basic pedicure before beauty mavens skillfully trim, shape, and buff toenails by wielding a foot paddle and menacing glares to scare rough calluses away from soles. Layers of homemade lotion moisturize legs and feet during a soothing final massage. After techs shape fingernails, manicure-ready clients choose a Shellac sheen from a rainbow of polish hues, and then watch it set under UV light. Shellac’s rock-hard gel finish will last up to two weeks without chipping. Finally, techs will massage hands wearied from copying the Declaration of Independence on rice grains before releasing them to grab a complimentary beverage, sips of wine, and sweet cookie nibbles within the light-blue walls of T’ani’s Spa's waiting area.
Nails & Skin by Diane's restoration-minded staff caters to both men and women, pampering complexions with personalized, multifaceted face-cleansing techniques. Clients fill out an individual history card upon arrival, which epidermal detectives analyze to investigate each face and determine its specific skin type prior to treatment. Aestheticians then cleanse the skin before steaming it and massaging necks and shoulders via a chorus of nimble fingers, dexterous thumbs, and overzealous earlobes. After faces hide away for a spell behind a mask, which a staffer tailors to the client's specific skin type, countenances slip into a refreshing evening dress of toner and moisturizer. Throughout the facial, the beauty team lavishes layers of dermis in Bioelements and Pevonia Botanica skincare products.
