Today, she's a master stylist, but before beauty school, Hali Owens focused on psychology while immersed in a criminal justice curriculum. Since shifting to her true passion, however, she's cultivated a service menu that ranges from bang trims to elaborate wedding updos topped with three-tier cakes. Despite all these choices, Owens advises guests not to get too overwhelmed: "Don’t worry about knowing exactly what you want," she says. "I am glad to help you decide and make the process as easy and stress-free as possible." Customers are able to relax in Owens's chair, knowing they can depend on her 15 years' experience and expert eye to shape and color the perfect hairdo. Her specialties help clients feel their best, and to Owens, that's the best part of the job: "My favorite moment," she says, "is when my client looks in the mirror at the finished look and I can see their confidence rise!"
At Divine Wellness, wellness doesn't mean giving up chocolate--instead, it means applying it to your face. During their Chocolate Layered Facial, chocolate-infused products brighten skin, combating signs of aging such as wrinkles and tattoos of rotary telephones. The center's signature facial, meanwhile, deploys products tailored to the client's skin, and the microdermabrasion treatment sloughs away dead skin with sterilized crystals. Massages further relax physiques, in styles ranging from classic Swedish kneads to holsitic reiki massages, which aid the flow of universal life force energy through the body.
Originally a massage therapist, Sunnie Brown shifted career gears when she realized that it was the skin, not the muscles, she was meant to treat. Battling her own bouts of acne and seeing first hand the marvels of skincare, Sunnie attended school at the Dermal Institute of Los Angeles, which equipped her with the knowledge she puts to use today at Skin by Sunnie.
Here, Sunnie offers numerous skincare treatments, though each one is customized to meet the client's own individual needs. Anti-aging, classic, and Epicuren 3-layer lifting facials each bring their own nourishing touch to blemishes and other skin maladies. Sunnie also offers microdermabrasions and peels to further reveal skin’s radiant colors, as well as dermal needling, lash extensions, and waxing services that put the finishing touches on newly revitalized countenances.
Sajal Hubbs brings the ancient art of threading to Bollywood Eyebrow Threading. With quick twists of a cotton fiber, she’s able to shape brows into elegant arches with less irritation than waxing. Sajal also readies brides-to-be with makeup applications, and paints henna onto skin for elaborate body art that lasts up to two weeks.
In her private chamber within Heidi's, Nicole Cereghino is cataloging all of the ingredients found in beauty products that clog pores. The list is long and full of surprises such as algae extract, cocoa butter, and spackle, but Cereghino has devoted her business, Pure Radiance Revealed, to restoring skin's healthy glow without them. Instead, she relies on fruit enzymes and natural acids to gently buff away dead and damaged tissue during her six specialty facials. Particle-free diamond microdermabrasion furthers this goal with minimal irritation to the skin, and soft, LED light and microcurrent technology promote cellular renewal below the surface for a firmer, more youthful complexion. To help showcase the radiant complexions that result from her treatments, she also removes unwanted hair with the targeted rays of an Elos laser instead of staring at the hair long enough to make follicles get uncomfortable and leave.
