The staff at Smiley Med Spa and Wellness Center take on body, mind, and spirit issues using a holistic approach to well-being. This philosophy inspires the duo to rout out the source of dermatological issues rather than temporarily hide visible symptoms. Since specific skin anomalies call for precise treatments, the center boasts an array of facials, chemical peels, collagen treatments, and injectables, performed by Dr Smaili, that cater to quelling signs of aging, mild scarring, acne problems, and uneven skin tone.
Opened by Dr. Tarick Smaili in 2011 as an extension of his plastic-surgery practice, the California Surgical Institute, Smiley Med Spa and Wellness Center provides medical aesthetic services to treat skin conditions and contour the body without undergoing surgery or sleeping inside a mannequin.
The hair-pampering pros at The Haircutters have trimmed locks and transformed outmoded manes for more than a quarter of a century. Unlike many salons, in which shampooing is a separate service, the team starts off every haircut and style by treating scalps to suds with handfuls of professional products from top brands such as Biolage and American Crew.
Apart from the signature shampoo-and-cuts, the staff at The Haircutters also offers color and texturizing services. Redken color camp for men gets hombres’ heads looking good, and spiral perms cascade with curls. Devoted to client convenience, The Haircutters welcomes walk-ins seven days a week.
Lookfine Threading and Beauty Salon's Upland beauty professionals vanquish blemishes with contemporary techniques, including electrical microcurrent treatments and diamond-tip microdermabrasion, as well as a passion for threading, the ancient art of sculpting eyebrows into shapely arches with a cotton strand. Meanwhile, the graceful curlicues and camouflaged exam answers characteristic of henna tattoos temporarily infuse complexions with a fresh aesthetic.
Massage therapist Laurelle relies on the certified skills of her nimble fingers to gift backs with deeply relaxing treatments. During the hot-stone therapy massage, Laurelle heats smooth stones and places them at energy points along the body, warming muscles and boosting blood circulation. Laurelle cossets guests for 40 minutes, 60 minutes, or 90 minutes, allowing them to match their massage to how long they are comfortable leaving vintage Lego sets alone in the car. Purple accents speck the cool color scheme of the salon, where diaphanous plum curtains complement sage-green walls.
