As early as 16, Whitney Page started fostering her passion for cosmetology and aesthetics and her overwhelming desire to help clients uncover their most beautiful selves. Having trained as a colorist in Beverly Hills, she prizes precision and attention to detail in each service she performs. Within Texture Hair Salon’s elegant space lit with ornate fixtures, Ms. Page shepherds clients into her private studio to perform her specialty Brazilian waxing treatments, using Satin Smooth wax to render bodies hairless with a gentle touch. When not smoothening skin, she calls upon her many years of experience to snip and color coifs for men, women, kids, and the family Wookie.
With more than 10 years of beauty-industry experience, massage therapist and aesthetician Christine Rasmussen knows aesthetic treatments inside and out. And at her beauty haven, Skin, she requires that her staff does, too. Together, the knowledgeable team of certified technicians creates a welcoming space where they personalize each skincare and body service. Aestheticians reach for skin-type specific Ayur-Medic and Dermalogica products to enhance the cleansing effects of facial or the exfoliating impact of a chemical peel or diamond microdermabrasion. This same attention to detail can be found during customized body treatments, which range from trigger-point therapy and lomilomi massages to a detoxifying body scrub made with sea salt or a sugar mixture infused with fruit, chocolate, and coffee ingredients.
Skin's dedicated team also provides mobile spa treatments and spa parties, both of which can be performed in the comfort of the client's home, office, or giant, walk-in makeup compact.
In Touch Massage & Day Spa’s massage therapists and aestheticians have been relaxing and rejuvenating clients for two decades. The team’s massages melt aches from muscles and worries from minds with modalities that range from deep tissue, which targets knots and sore spots, to hot stone, which uses polished, hot basalt-lava stones to cut through tension and cold marble stones to flush the body and refresh the skin. For facials, aestheticians work with the client’s complexion, formulating each treatment to ameliorate excessive dryness or pores that have aligned themselves to spell out “Help!” As a spa boutique, In Touch Massage & Day Spa also stocks clothing and lingerie as well as products by Dermalogica, Environ, and SkinMedica.
Since the spa sits inside Spectrum Athletic Clubs at Thousand Oaks, guests have easy access to yoga classes, treadmills, a heated pool, and a eucalyptus steam room. Occasionally, though, the spa cuts loose from its foundation with its Spa to Go program. At events such as bridal showers or girls’ nights out, team members can deliver massages and herbal wraps to create great memories and reveal which friend is actually a robot in disguise.
Within Studio Bijoux, Christine Miller stands at her styling station, deftly wielding scissors and haircare products as she revamps head topiary. Music permeates the air, soothing away workday stress and inspiring clients to sing out their aesthetic visions as they sip complimentary coffee or espresso. Christine draws upon Goldwell semipermanent colors to re-hue headscapes, and her training in styles both classic and contemporary help her sculpt a fitting 'do for any face shape and lifestyle. After a clip and rinse, Belmaster hair driers wait to purge strands of excess water in 10 minutes, readying tresses to weigh-in for featherweight boxing matches.
Barbara Maddis treats clients’ facial-related concerns, including acne, excess oil, fine lines, and sun damage. Her facials encompass such extras as gentle extractions, cheek pinches, and strawberry-rhubarb masks that aim to diminish signs of aging.
