A hairstyle should reflect the personality of its owner, so everyone should have a unique hairstyle. At least that's what Doll Face Hair Studio's master stylist Chris believes. He uses his skills and know-how—which includes almost a decade’s worth of experience and training at Vidal Sassoon and Redken 5th Avenue—to create these modern looks for clients. He provides haircuts, foil highlights, color correction, and keratin treatments that leave strands smoother and shinier than a car salesman dipped in chrome.
Chocolate-hued hardwood floors offer a rustic complement to the salon’s honey-yellow walls and vintage wood cabinetry. Amid these cozy accents, expert stylist Jacki Nocerino sets her scissors loose on hair and crafts confident layers to flatter the individual’s unique features. Guests may also request a restorative conditioning treatment or ramp up bland strands with eye-catching highlights.
Beyond Beauty Lashes occupies an unconventional space inside a poker supply warehouse, and according to a feature that OC Weekly writer Michelle Woo penned in praise of the salon, a visit to one of their three private treatment rooms can yield big results. That's because the spot's extensionist, who has been in the business for 10 years, meticulously elongates eyelashes using synthetic extensions with the option to upgrade to silk or mink options harvested humanely from live animals, just like the cookies harvested from cookie monsters. Clients can choose from various lengths, thicknesses, and colors to achieve their desired look. The extensions typically last 60–100 days, shedding gradually with natural lashes.
OM Day Spa's quintet of therapists performs a plethora of pampering massage, skincare, and waxing services. A few therapists take care of the skincare side of the spa. They execute everything from manual dermabrasion to facials that employ ironizing technology and magnets to erase blemishes. Others handle the massage side, having mastered modalities such as Swedish, warm bamboo, and prenatal. The team also provides body slimming and detoxing wraps, as well as cosmetic enhancements such as eyelash extensions.
Rockstar Tan's team of trained technicians darkens patrons to their preferred hues with a mélange of traditional and UV-free tanning options. MyMyst spray tans let robotic tanning techs enrobe skin in four variable shades of DHA, bronzers, and ground-up Malibu Barbies, with results that last up to one week. For even more customized sunless tans, trained technicians wield the Infinity Sun custom airbrush system, which incorporates a mixture of antioxidants and botanicals into a browning formula engineered to last from one to two weeks. Standup and bed-style models of three-star UV tanning booths are designed to reupholster birthday suits in as few as four to five 10-minute sessions—the same amount of time it takes the sun to turn a vampire into a bronzed beach lifeguard.
