Working as both a stylist and salon manager over the past 20 years, Cindy Mumford knows her way around the styling chair. She also recognizes how quickly her beloved hair industry can change, so rather than let new trends and techniques pass her by, the Hot Choppers Salon stylist takes every opportunity to attend seminars and classes to stay abreast of the latest and greatest product and method advancements.
Cindy works within Hot Choppers’ elegant wood-floored and damask-adorned space as an expert in precision cuts, highlights, and color correction. After consulting with clients to discuss their style visions and deep-seated fears of curling irons, she uses Redken products and a combination of techniques to fashion a chic, fashion-forward look. Cindy also can leave head hair alone, instead adding voluminous length to eyelashes with extensions or removing unwanted stubble through sugaring.
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.
A skincare studio that focuses on highly effective skincare treatments, anti-aging body and facial treatments, airbrush tanning, and professional makeup application and products. We offer body treatments as well as body work therapies. Our goal is to maintain the highest quality service with the highest quality skincare.
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.
Dr. Michael McMurry has his hands full. When he's not realigning askew spines as a chiropractor at Optimal Health and Wellness Center, he's putting teams of boot-campers or personal trainees through their paces as part of his insanely intricate body transformation system. With the help of nutritionist and certified group fitness instructor, Cori Newman, the two tag-team lethargy and help their clients beat back the usual obstacles that get between people and their exercise routine.
Each client leaps into the fitness fray with a personalized health assessment, cardiovascular screening exam, and measurements to pinpoint the most effective use of the ensuing six- or twelve-week program. Before the first personal training or bootcamp session starts, clients begin boosting healthy metabolism and cutting out extra calories with simple meal plans, recipes, and a detox diet that takes the guesswork out of going to the grocery store and helps avoid the temptations of travelling frosting salesmen.
Over the ensuing weeks, exercisers cycle rapidly through a dynamic interval training program designed by physicians that replaces reams of weight with lean muscle. A constantly changing roster of exercises, including cardio, plyometrics, and speed drills, keeps muscles on their toes to burn more fat than the first bacon grease-powered locomotive.
At Massage by Piroska, located within West Coast Cuts & Colors hair salon, a licensed massage therapist in practice since 2001 kneads away tension and pain. Specialties include relaxing Swedish massages, sports massages, and hot-stone sessions that calm the body and the mind. Indulge with add-ons such as scalp massages and exfoliating foot scrubs.
