Guests at Relax Spa and Beauty ? Burbank, winner of Citysearch's Best Relaxation Massage 2008, unwind with head-to-toe treatments. Aestheticians exfoliate complexions with one of their relaxing facials, uncovering brighter skin and erasing war paint left over from games of capture the flag. A collection of massage services coaxes tension from muscles, and body treatments remove dead skin cells from the surface with handmade scrubs or a eucalyptus body wash that cleans off unwanted grime and attracts neighborhood koala bears.
Celebrating their 10th year in business, Relax Spa and Beauty recently remodeled and expanded their facility. The updated location, which boasts a much larger space, has reopened with a new look, services, products, and more.
Fire-engine-red walls and jet-black furnishings surround beauty transformations at Nail & Hair Bar, a fashion haven that upholds a high level of sanitization and keeps up-to-date on style trends. Nails varnished with mirror-silver polish reflect smiling faces and ceiling-dwelling ghosts as french-tipped finger-ends sport geometrically square nails. After clients slink into plush styling chairs, shears-wielders snip hair into angular bobs or twist tresses into ringlet-laden up-dos.
Licensed aesthetician and makeup artist Kasey Hersh curates a menu of skin-revamping treatments in her eponymous salon, Glow skincare by Kasey. Wielding an arsenal of naturally formulated beauty products, Kasey and her team create radiant complexions with a variety of fruit-filled facials, peels, and hydrodermabrasion or microdermabrasion treatments. After faces are glowing brighter than a Maglite attached to a car battery, the aesthetic team beautifies the rest of the body with services such as skin-clearing back facials or custom organic spray tans.
At Beauty by Marina, steady-handed professional makeup artist and eyebrow-shaping specialist Marina enhances clients’ natural features with artistic daytime and evening looks for weddings and other special occasions. After consulting with clients, Maria sharpens ocular over-scores and finishes foundation with striking or subtle hues and vibrant shimmers to create dramatic looks for strutting down a red carpet, aisle, or airport moving walkway.
Specializing exclusively in UV-free hues, Blush Spray Tans' technicians work one-on-one with clients to artfully administer thorough, natural-looking airbrush tans. Tucked away in private rooms, airbrushing artists contour bodies with sun-free solutions in solo sessions, multiple-tan packages, or group tanning parties to prepare clients for weddings or Technicolor journeys to Oz.
An aesthetician for nearly three decades, Danuta Kozlowski brings multiple dermal certifications and expertise gleaned from continuing-education courses with French beauty companies to each session of lavish skincare services. Massages pamper weatherworn hides with full-body treatments in private rooms, as well as with natural add-ons, such as mud and algae.
