The stylists and aestheticians at L'Attrait Salon & Spa refurbish hair, nails, and skin with services that range from custom cuts and sun-kissed highlights to makeup application and laser hair removal. To accomplish these feats, the salon employs a range of cruelty-free beauty products. Paraben-free Sidlab Haircouture formulas soften and smooth tresses, botanical-oil-infused Nahla Beauty organic skincare products restore radiance to skin, and chemical- and fragrance-free Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics provide full coverage while letting skin breathe.
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 Adorned Aesthetics, even the most familiar of skincare treatments, the facial, contains some surprises; the center's roster of nine different facials includes three services specifically designed for men as well as a Just Like Heaven exfoliation and massage treatment that lasts a full two hours. Two other services make use of some rare materials: the 24 kt. gold facial uses a gold serum and mask to reverse oxidation damage, and the Diamond Exfolight facial removes dead skin using the diamond-soled shoes that inspired Paul Simon to become a cobbler. When serums fall short, clients turn to the Bio-Roller, an FDA-approved micro-needle rolling system that treats wrinkles and acne without inflicting the downtime associated with surgery.
The spa can offer all of these treatments thanks to the expertise of Melanie Hamilton and Kathryn Hoffman, who are professionally certified and trained by Obagi Pharmaceutical Skin Care. This company also provides a few of the specialized products that they use during treatments on a variety of skin issues. Melanie and Kathryn, who are also trained in the formal modalities of the Valmont skincare line from Switzerland, stay sharp by attending classes, seminars, and conventions in the industry.
Glow Aesthetics's skilled aestheticians promote healthy skin with targeted laser therapy and treatments that call on products from Skinceuticals, Jan Marini, and Clarisonic. Led by owner Shayne Corson, the spa’s staff treats facial ailments with restorative services such as LED skin tightening, microdermabrasion, and laser skin therapy—all of which work in tandem to repair skin tarnished by aging, sun damage, and glued-on soul patches. The team also clears bodies of unwanted hair with waxing services and laser hair removal.
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.
