From the moment you walk into Sweet Cheeks, you feel at home. This is no overwrought Zen garden spa; it is simply a relaxing space. Owners, Stephen and Cheryl Rhodes, planned it that way. They want each client to feel like family, and they are committed to a philosophy of complete attention to their client’s individual needs in a comfortable environment.
After years as a Director of two Youth Opportunity Centers for high-risk youth in Riverside County and more recently a YWCA Director, Cheryl realized that she needed to make a positive change in her life. She wanted to continue to help people, but in a more relaxing environment. After consulting with her daughter, Summer, who has been a licensed medical esthetician for many years, she went back to school and completed her studies as well. Stephen, who is an experienced designer with a fine arts degree, designed the space and later came on board as a Certified Permanent Cosmetic Artist. With Cheryl’s daughter Brooke managing the studio, and Summer and Cheryl providing services, a true family business was born. The passion and commitment of this family are evident in their relationship with their clients, as well as in the results they achieve.
When you enter Sweet Cheeks, you are met by one of Stephen’s many works of art that adorn the space: a “cheeky” painting of Cheryl, Summer and Brooke. Deeper into the studio, you begin to see the depth of his talent. A painting of Koi fish in one of the treatment rooms showcases his artistry. The good news for Sweet Cheeks’ patrons is that Stephen is also a Certified Permanent Cosmetics Professional Artist. He utilizes his 30 years of experience and a fine arts degree, along with state-of-the-art digital equipment and MRI-safe pigments, to transform his clients. He offers a free consultation, a conservative approach to achieve a natural look, and a follow up appointment 3 -4 weeks later to add more color if the client wants a more dramatic look.
While Stephen is highly sought after for his talents as a permanent cosmetics artist, Sweet Cheeks focuses heavily on advanced and corrective skin care. They offer a wide variety of facials to suit every skin type and challenge. Although your facial will make you feel great, it will also achieve substantial positive results. Treatments include traditional rejuvenating facials, acne or hyperpigmentation relief, microdermabrasion, facial peels and dermal planing. Although relaxing, these are no “fluffy facials!”
In addition to extensive skin care treatments, Sweet Cheeks offers airbrush spray tanning, body wraps, eyelash extensions, and a complete menu of hair removal options. After 11 years in the industry, Summer is the expert in hair removal and specializes in Brazilian and bikini waxing. The goal is to provide the ultimate service and comfort, and Sweet Cheeks encourages clients to call ahead for waxing tips to ensure a positive experience.
The Rhodes team is proud to serve clients of of all ages. Their current client roster ranges in age from 16 (eyebrow wax) to 89 (facial), and they consider each client a member of the family. Further to the theme of family, Sweet Cheeks offers a specialty service for expectant mothers called “Baby Bump.” They schedule women to come in 2 -3 weeks before their due date and cast a sweet, perfect replica of their pregnant belly. The cast can be left in its simplest form or embellished with flowers, tulle, etc. to create a signature look. They include a special pocket so clients can attach a sweetheart message for their baby to cherish in years to come.
Sweet Cheeks Studio offers its clients a free eyebrow wax with all facials. As an added bonus for Taste of Temecula fans, they will be extending a 10% discount on facial and body treatments from Thursday, September 2nd – Thursday, September 9th. Now is the time for healthier, younger looking skin and a beautiful body! The team will take the time to tailor your experience to your needs. They embrace the fact that every face, every body, every person is different and they make it “all about you.”
