I LOVE poppy petal spa! Julia is amazing and always listens to every need. I've gotta a few facials with her, one of which was microneedling, and she walked me through the entire process and made sure I was comfortable. She follows up with me and checks in on how I'm doing, too!
Her spa is always so cozy, comforting, and relaxing. I would go to her for all your beauty needs; trust me, I don't say that lightly.
I also get my lashes done with her and always get compliments on them.
I look forward to facials with Yulia. She is so kind and has a high degree of expertise. She works out of her home. The environment is clean, attractive, and peaceful. My skin feels wonderful when I leave and I have never had a reaction of any kind to the products. I love talking with her. She is smart and interesting and she doesn't try to sell products. Wonderful!
I recently moved to the area and was looking for someone to wax my eyebrows after going to the same place for 10 years. I found Yulia on Yelp and she was fantastic! It can be scary having a new person wax your brows but Yulia started off by asking how I liked them and what I was looking to be done to make sure we were on the same page. She was very meticulous and gentle and friendly to chat with during the process. Definitely recommend!

I have nothing but GREAT things to say about Yulia! Her salon is very comforting and relaxing. Her spa music put me in such a peaceful state.
This was my first facial in over 3 years, yikes! Yulia recommended I get a peel and mask, so I did. Best advice I received! With such a gentle touch, my face felt absolutely refreshed and soft. Even her extractions were very gentle and I am so happy with the results! I didn't break out, my face even feels healthier and shinier, which is great since I have very dry skin. She rejuvenated my face!
OH, can't forget about the best part- my brows! I don't like being waxed so she offered to tweeze them. Honestly, my brows are the best they've ever looked! I will absolutely be back for more!
Yulia, you're the best! Thank you for the best facial and eyebrow shaping I've ever had! You're amazing.
Yulia has the hands of an angel. Last August of 2016 I made the decision to get a IUD with hormones. (What women wouldn't want a period and not get pregnant?) I had a boyfriend at the time and we both agreed it would be a smart and safe move for me. I never had bad skin in my life. I was blessed with great skin from my parents. My background is Mexican and Black so my skin tone is a very light tan. I was always told I could pass for Puerto Rican or Egyptian. 8 months pass and my skin decides to take a turn for the worst. I broke out with super severe with deep pore pimples, inflamed blackheads, and PIH (Post Inflammatory Hyper Pigmentation.) This was the worst breakout of my life. I went to a place in Huntington Beach called Beach Skin that completely raped my wallet with nonsense facials, microneedling, and Blue Light/Red Light treatment. $600+ later my wallet was empty and my skin was even worse. The microneedling ended up spreading my acne all over my face. (I only broke out on my cheek and chin areas. Those areas are common for unbalanced hormones. The IUD was causing my skin to break out.) I assumed I needed another microneedling since that was what Beach Skin told me. I was not ready to waste anymore money and time at that horrible place. I went on Groupon (I'm a college student and that $600+ was from my savings.) and found Yulia. I went in prepared to do the microneedling and she assured me that I didn't need a microneedling but a European facial. The facial did not burn and was very soothing. It turns out my face was severely dry and my skin was overproducing sebum to make up for the lack of hydration. Beach Skin kept telling me my skin was too oily and demanded that I strip my skin of it's natural oils to soak up the sebum. Yulia finished her gentle facial and informed me about Solange. Solange is the product company she uses and it's great. It's organic and is made fresh. I never had acne growing up, but the cost of having no acne meant a super sensitive skin type. Makeup broke me out and gave me rashes. Yes I never got into makeup because of my skin. I couldn't even wear eyelinear or mascara without getting styes or a bad reaction. I trusted Yulia and bought Solange as well. The first week my skin healed dramatically. A lot of my dark spots were inflamed blackheads and my skin was red because it was irritated. Not only was my skin being dried out from Beach Skin but the BP and SA (Benzoyl Perxoide and Salilyic Acid) (Yes I misspelled them. Lol) Beach Skin (Ashley the esthetician who messed up my skin worst.) recommended was over drying my skin. The products Yulia had me buy unclogged my pores and helped heal it! This review is long and most people may not read it but at least check out my before and after pictures. The dark spots have faded dramatically and look like freckles now. My skin is 85% healed. I don't break out or have pimples anymore! Thank you Yulia! The picture with pink hair was from last year. Skin affects a person's confidence! I used to model and once my skin broke out I stopped going out and became depressed. Yulia restored my skin and now I get compliments everywhere! My friends noticed a huge difference and now I can go out and not be depressed about my skin!!

Yulia is great! I got my face micro needled with her and she did such a great job. She explained everything she was doing, and was very gentle. It was relatively painless as topical numbing was applied. It's only been about 3 weeks and my skin feels nice! No down time, just redness the day of, and light skin peeling/flakiness for about a week after. Really recommend her! Her studio is in the back of Sola Salon Studios in the spa area.
Just had a facial with Yulia and I'm hooked! She has the hands of an angel, perfect pressure! Nothing burned and everything smelled heavenly. I could have stayed there all day! She's also very knowledgeable and I ended up learning a lot about my skin. I'm definitely recommending Yulia to everyone! Thank you so much for my glowing skin
This girl Yuliya, is awesome! Best Esthetician in town! She is gifted and once you see her u will be hooked. She is very sweet, kind, patient, very knowledgeable, gentle and all this is crucial in an Esthetician. She is very dedicated takes her time and goes above and beyond. You can tell she loves her job and making people happy. I was a massage envy member for a decade and I wish I would of found her sooner. Prices are extremely reasonable for Orange County and service is out of this world. Plus her products are fresh and latest technology is used. My family will be coming to see her from out of town. Thank you Yuliya, you are making a difference one face at a time.
