Tan LA's Smart Tan?certified staff takes pride in matching each body with its perfect tanning method. Its customized tanning programs begin with an analysis of each client's skin type to determine which of the shop's meticulously maintained European beds is best suited to their needs. With four levels of intensity and exposure times ranging from 9 to 20 minutes, the studio is able to cater to complexions from fair to olive, whereas talented airbrush technicians offer custom-blended solutions for those who prefer not to be exposed to bulbs or their annoying sunny dispositions.
Beyond bronzing, Tan LA keeps the beach-bound looking their best with advanced spa services that range from cellulite-shrinking Formostar body wraps to red-light anti-aging therapies that, like profound Pink Floyd lyrics, penetrate 8 to 10 millimeters below the skin?s surface, working to boost blood flow and stimulate collagen growth

At Studio Bijoux, she employs these decades of experience while carving out cuts for men, women, and children using Privé and Redken products. Christine also imbues locks with rich, deep Goldwell and Framesi hair color, which can perk up her guests just as much as the complimentary coffee and water she offers them.

At Escentials, a beauty shop nestled in the rolling hills of Calabasas, licensed aesthetician Trini Ponce de Leon hydrates and exfoliates complexions.

With her custom waxes, she also strips away unwanted stubble.

The California Health & Longevity Institute eases Golden State bodies and minds with a comprehensive approach to wellness, integrating five disciplines of care. Licensed professionals perform a soothing array of complementary alternative services that combine Eastern and Western medicines and omit the works of prime-meridian snake-oil surgeons. Acupuncture painlessly engages innate healing responses with hair-thin needles, and acupressure treatments mimic the therapeutic effect with manual pressure instead of slender pins. Energy healing employs touch to influence internal systems and balance physical, emotional, and spiritual scales. Medical-hypnotherapy sessions use clinical techniques that reinforce subconscious signals to achieve deep relaxation and defeat old habits such as chewing other people's fingernails.
