After five years of rapid growth and a thriving clientele, Tantrum Salon faced a turning point when Tabatha Coffey stepped her signature jet-black boots onto the salon floor. The host of Bravo's Tabatha's Salon Takeover got right to work streamlining their business, highlighting their best stylists, and renovating the space by swapping out the loud yellow wall paint for neutral tones and threadbare curtains for geometric dividers. Now, owner Robert Moreno and his team work together flawlessly to craft face-flattering styles with cuts, color, and other specialty services such as extensions, relaxers, and Brazilian Blowouts, which create smooth, sultry hair better than playing Barry White through a blow dryer.
SB Fit Personal Training's team of dedicated personal trainers pumps up flimsy physiques with a regimen of varied and unconventional workouts. Intentionally devoid of treadmills and many other traditional units, the intimate studio features uncommon exercise instruments such as tires, ropes, olympic rings, and live bears to spicy up workouts with challenging new activities. Clients enter each session unaware of the upcoming routine to ensure excitement and anticipation for surprise drills during every muscle-molding minute. Exercises and intensity levels are determined based on each client's personal fitness goals, with coaches placing an emphasis on friendly motivation. The positive attitude makes each visit an approachable experience and each one-hour session is conducted with up to four trainees to foster a sense of community as opposed to a potentially radioactive spider sense. Groupon users must redeem all six sessions within three weeks of activation and should call ahead to schedule their first appointment.
Velia Boutique and Skincare gilds bodies with beautifying treatments that restore youthful vitality to skin. Technicians rejuvenate faces with a mild, 30% lactic-acid solution, dislodging old skin with a blanket bombardment of low-pH firepower (a $25 value). Then, a microdermabrasion tool strips away dull remnants with a gentle stream of crystals, while an attached vacuum sucks up loosened cells and stimulates visages with vivifying suction (a $100 value). Treatments improve evenness, smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, and help empty the pores of impure thoughts. After facial renovations, Groupon customers can avail themselves of a 20% discount on any boutique purchase, stocking homes with skincare products from Éminence Organics for pro-level domestic beautification.
National Bartenders School, Covina helps its graduates land not a single job, but an entire lifetime of work. Alumni can return to the school for unlimited refresher courses and job-placement aid. First, however, they must earn their bartending degree, mastering the art of crafting, garnishing, and presenting more than 200 cocktails through classes and hours of solo practice. The instructors’ state-approved courses cover traditional bartending and flair bartending, which hinges on tricks such as juggling bottles or igniting shots with a to-scale model sun.
