Top Touch Oceanside Hair & Skin Inc.’s proprietor spent years studying under her mother at the family’s salons and spas in Punjab. Today, she and her staff administer luxurious treatments for men and women, including threading, waxing, nail- and haircare treatments, and 16 types of facials. In addition to everyday treatments, they specialize in hair and makeup looks for brides, along with traditional mehndi designs for the hands and arms.
Sashay Day Spa & Hair Salon warmly welcomes each new client 15 minutes before the scheduled spa rendezvous for a brief consultation that collects health and skin history. Armed with relevant factoids and beauty backstory, the cheerful stylists and spa techs can fine-tune treatments powered by upscale products that include the all-natural Eminence organic skincare line and ultra chip-resistant Bio Sculpture nail gel systems. A unisex pampering oasis, Sashay offers waxing, facials, and mani-pedis designed especially for masculine physiques, as well as extended spa packages of up to 6.5 hours including a relaxing power-tool demonstration. Packages bestow restorative bliss via multi-service medleys that include massages, full-body exfoliations, and facials. Clients enjoying longer packages are also served a healthy spa-day lunch.
Though the services provided at Vanish Laser and Beauty Central Inc. are high-end, the studio maintains a down-to-earth feel as experienced technicians keep an open line of communication with clients from the first complimentary consultation to their last beauty treatment. By consulting with clients, technicians are able to formulate a clear plan for beautification, which can include diamond-tip microdermabrasion, Aura White teeth-whitening treatments, vein removal, and green tea–infused It Works! body wraps that detoxify the body and firm the skin. Customers also can obtain clearer complexions with the aid of advanced intense-pulsed-light lasers, which work double time as skin is inundated with heated wavelengths that destroy hair at the root, purge dead skin cells, and sometimes grant superpowers.
Natural sunlight flies through large windows and bounces off the black-framed mirrors decking a lineup of styling stations, where Prism Hair Designs' professional staff fashions sleek haircuts and creative colour. A slew of international products—such as Kaya Kalp from India and Skeyndor from Spain—bolster facials and peels by nourishing the skin alongside hot towels and steam treatments. Meanwhile, massage therapists stand by with hot stones and custom techniques, ready to pamper bodies and ease soreness stemming from nights on a makeshift waterbed crafted from the aquarium's shark exhibit.
Opened in December 2009, Xhale Beauty Lounge is an upscale salon presenting patrons with scoopfuls of high-quality services and a commitment to eco-friendly practices. The beauty mani-pedi treatments repair and rejuvenate damaged digits with cuticle corralling, nail shaping, scrubs, massage, colour polish, and a concluding aromatherapy hot-towel treatment. Each service takes 45 minutes and uses colourfully hued polish made by CND and SpaRitual. Though fingers are necessary for tracing turkeys and plugging the unsightly hole in the middles of diamond rings, they are also useful barometers of age and refinement. When prospective employers and old flames gaze at a person’s finger docks and the occasionally bared leg hand, well-kempt nails and cuticles send a message of confidence, sophistication, and youth. After a mani-pedi at Xhale Beauty Lounge, your feelers and walkers will proclaim your put-togetherness to the crowds of potentially amorous others and jealous, rough-fingered tree branches.
Guzel Salon & Spa bronzes patrons using an array of tanning formats including beds, booths, and sprays. Visitors can gild their surfaces while lying in a modern Tan America bed or soak up sunless rays vertically in one of two models of standup booths, which also deliver hilarious comedy routines. Guzel’s friendly, helpful staff can also impart golden glows to epidermises via Norvell spray tanning equipment. The handheld body mister coats clients in adjustable levels of colouring, such as bronze, dark, double dark, and triple mocha fudge with macadamia nuts.
