Spa Night at Genesis The Salon

Recently the Genesis The Salon in Mission Hills held a Spa Night to thank their clients for another good year and to introduce some of the new services that are now available.  It was an evening of pampering and fun.  Food and drink was enjoyed by all as well as some wonderful spa treatments.

Valinda Dawson, Genesis’s skin care expert, spoiled clients with a brow wax, what I like to call a ” mini – eye lift”.  At the Salon she specializes in many treatments to help you look and feel revitalized that include facials such as the Karin Herzog Swiss Oxygen Facial, which was developed by a  Nobel Prize winning surgeon. Other treatments offered are chemical peels, waxing, and lash tinting.

Gail Oxford, Genesis’s Nail Technician, treated lucky clients to a paraffin wax treatment with a wonderful vanilla scent that makes hands velvety smooth for days. Gail was also introducing a new line of nail products that are less invasive to the nails than acrylic .  This shellac like product is the absolute latest in nail care and the demand is so great that just keeping the product in stock has been a challenge.

Speaking of the absolute latest, Raquel demonstrated lash extensions!  Watching as Raquel applied each extension to each existing lash, lash by lash I was amazed and the result was incredible, dramatic, yet natural looking lush lashes.  Just think, no need to apply mascara and no end of the day smudging that makes you look more tired than you feel.

Genesis owner, Peter Garcia,  pampered clients with a deep hair conditioning and blow out.  Peter has created a great space here at the salon that not only provides the best in hair and beauty service but a place to showcase local artists and artisans as well.  Currently,  the featured artist is a  young painter, Michael Garcia, who is showing a series of paintings inspired by the concept of glamour.  Other local artisans display handmade jewelry and handbags that are available for purchase and reasonably priced.

To check out the latest innovations in hair and beauty as well as local artists and artisans you can visit Genesis The Salon at 320 West Washington Street, San Diego, California or call for appointments and details on services and rates (619) 295-4166.
As always keeping you posted on what is going on in the neighborhood,
