For nearly a decade, the skincare professionals at Lan’s Skin Care and Health Spa have maintained a relaxing haven that stimulates the body's capacity to heal. With each service, they attend to emotional and physical needs, adhering to the belief that mind, body, and spirit are as inextricably linked as peanut butter and the roof of your mouth. Aestheticians ease the mind with quiet treatment rooms, and relax the body by punctuating facials with hand, foot, and shoulder massages. Together, these efforts uplift the spirit and foster overall wellness.
Acne treatments and deep-skin-cleaning services dot the menu alongside permanent-makeup applications that enhance natural features. Lending equal credence to the areas beneath the neck, the specialists perform body wraps and offer steam and sauna therapy.
A believer in natural skincare, aesthetician Rani of Rani’s Organic Facials and Threading shudders when she reads the unpronounceable ingredients inside many skin products. That’s why she sidesteps harsh chemicals altogether and relies on all-organic ingredients for her chocolate facials, salt glow back treatments, and fruit facial bleaches.
Rani’s belief in natural spa services extends to facial hair removal, which she performs with pure cotton thread. Drawing on 20 years of threading mastery, she deftly sweeps across upper lips, chins, and eyebrows. Through her efforts, Rani gently removes hair while keeping irritation to a minimum, unlike when metal bands play libraries or crowd members read sonnets at metal concerts.
Inside a studio half immersed in tropical tones and half ensconced in an opulent Parisian scheme, Le Belle Nails & Spa's technicians refine both halves of the human body with luxurious nail services. Clients bask amid island hues as pedicurists soak and soften feet for 30 minutes. After filing toenails, buffing them, and lavishing them with a polish chosen from nearly 100 colors, nail mavens escort clients to the deep burgundy surroundings of a manicure station. A photo of the Eiffel Tower, which hasn't been trimmed in decades, gazes longingly at nails and cuticles as they're groomed and buffed into shape. Clients can adorn fingers with standard polish to complement gleaming tootsies or opt for a 60-minute shellac manicure that drapes finger helmets in a sturdier coat. A quick stint beneath a UV lamp holds the lacquer fast, ensuring weeks of smudge- and scuff-free high fives, back pats, and bongo-drum solos.
Nails Forever owner DJ West bounded into beauty school at the tender age of 16, and by age 18, she had her license, a job, and a dream that would lead her to San Francisco. There, her skills were sharpened in salons studding Union Square and Polk Street. Her desire to open her own salon brought her back to Contra Costa County, where she's been keeping fingertips looking tip-top since 1981. Her passion for painting and fine art is reflected in her hand-based handiwork, which often includes one-of-a-kind looks ranging from leopard-print nails to bejeweled holiday designs, and she's won no fewer than five trophies at nail-design competitions. She also specializes in Shellac application and excels in acrylic extensions, which typically hold up better than the old-fashioned wooden kind.
