Walking from one treatment room to another inside Tikkun Holistic Spa feels like what walking through a rainbow might be like. The deep blue-greens of the jade room give way to the pink bricks of the Himalayan salt room, and arctic-imitating landscape in the ice room shines a pale blue. Besides exuding a calming atmosphere, Tikkun Holistic Spa has one main goal: to help heal the entire world, one stressed-out person at a time. To that end, reiki master and owner Niki Han Schwarz developed her signature Korean body treatments for clients. Among those treatments is the body scrub and hot oil massage, in which scrubbing mitts exfoliate and hydrate the entire body. The spa also offers a variety of other relaxing treatments that include massage, body wraps, and facials.
The frosted glass on Body Oasis Day Spa's door reads "Indulge." It's not so much a command as an invitation, and for patrons who wish to accept, the service menu furnishes plenty of options: facials that use lemon, honey, and yogurt; hot-stone and Swedish massages; and mani-pedis that incorporate indulgences such as reflexology and Shellac polish. The beauty experts here pamper with a purpose. Whether they're doling out medical skincare treatments or body wraps that include exfoliation, aromatherapy, and a chamomile and marine algae mask, they focus on restoring clients' radiant glow and smooth, silky skin.
Vogue Beauty Studio’s Middle Eastern motif doesn’t stop at its logo and ornamentation—the all-female staff specializes in Middle Eastern beautification, including henna techniques and eyebrow threading. They promote pulchritude with facials, hair color, and permanent makeup, with prominent examples of their work on their website and glazed onto sheet cakes throughout Los Angeles. Pampering takes place in a storefront replete with arches, beaded decor, and a sumptuous curtain over the entryway.
Wakeup Beauty Salon & Spa’s licensed cosmetologist, Farzana Karimali, has been smoothing bodies with waxing and threading treatments for more than 10 years. During a 10-minute eyebrow-threading session, the brow guru artfully twists a cotton thread over unwanted hair and smeared Groucho Marx greasepaint, leaving eyebrows precisely arched. Alternatively, clients can opt for the Brazilian wax, and Farzana will whisk away undercarriages’ fuzz in 10 minutes with minimal pain and irritation.
Latisse is an FDA-approved prescription drug that was developed to treat inadequate eyelash growth; be sure to carefully review the safety information on the Latisse website. If Celibre's experienced medical professionals and beauty wranglers decide after your initial consultation that the Latisse treatment is not suited for you, a full refund will be offered, or you can use the $99 you spent for the Groupon toward another service at the office. Celibre's eyelash consultants can spot a Latisse candidate from across the street—though they conduct a comprehensive exam attentive to your individual needs and eyelash dreams just for the fun of it.
