Instead of going to daycare when she was a little girl, Tatyana went to cosmetology school. Technically, her mother was enrolled in the classes, but Tatyana would tag along, thus beginning her first courses in her informal beauty education. Since then, her knowledge has only grown, what with working at a college of beauty, helping helm operations at a Beverly Hills skincare line, and continuing to learn through regular classes, world travel, and brain osmosis.

During her career in the industry, Tatyana has kept a philosophy that fuses Western technology with Eastern philosophy. It's a credo that views the spa not as a luxury but as a way of life, a preventive therapy meant to inspire an embrace of health. At her spa, Tatyana nurtures this idea with skincare services such as microdermabrasion and peels, body treatments such as sugar and salt polishing, and facial treatments that cleanse and exfoliate the skin that no longer serves you. Éminence Organics skincare products, Jane Iredale makeup, and other premium products line the spa's shelves, waiting patiently for a loving home.

A haircut shouldn't be considered a chore. It should be thought of as a re-inventive experience, an open opportunity for a new appearance, and a chance to lose the nickname of "Mr. Shaggy McHirsute." But most of all, a haircut should be relaxing. A proper dosage of pampering, but not too frilly, with just a touch of friendly chit-chat to go with the cut. At PhatHeads Barbershop, kids and adults can kick back as their coifs are carefully shaped by a crew of experienced barbers. That old-fashioned style rings truest with PhatHeads hot-towel shaves, which couple warm cream and a straight-razor shave to leave necks and cheeks smoother than a baby's bowling ball.

They choose Designer Skin tanning lotions to fine tune the effects of a tanning session; the products come in elaborately designed bottles, and boast names such as Bombshell or Pretty and Reckless. They also offer UV-free spray tans, automatically applied within their Mystic Tan booths by the FDA-approved ghost that haunts each one.

Privato Salon & Spa is filled with sleek, modern decor, from plush leather chairs to long wooden tables, highlighted by pops of green and purple. Amiee's nail services mirror the salon's lustrous, contemporary atmosphere. She exfoliates feet with Bella Luccè scrubs and pampers them with hot-towel treatments during spa pedicures and combines crushed rice, sea kelp, green tea, coconut, and lemongrass to soothe feet during Touch of Thai pedicures. Hands and fingers aren't left out, either. After shaping, trimming, and buffing them, Amiee decorates digits with vibrant lacquer from butter London or chip-free polish from Gelish.
