Scattered throughout the peninsula, Natalie Salon Inc.'s five locations each house a team of specialists who pamper and beautify guests during nail, waxing, hair, and facial services. Staffers make over bodies from head to toe, rejuvenating faces with facials and treating dull talons to manicures and pedicures. They hone in on hair all over the body, waxing away unwanted fur, arranging lackluster strands into stylish coiffures, and tinting eyebrows to match recently dyed locks or recently dry-cleaned banana suits.

Bianca de Jong launched her first spa boutique in the Netherlands. After helming it for more than 10 years, she hopped the pond and landed in California, where she opened Forest Spa Boutique. To keep her services aligned with European standards, de Jong regularly returns to the Old World, learning new skills and expanding her collection of Big Ben key chains. She specializes in facial treatments related to aging, and can enhance each appointment with add-ons including peels, massages, and paraffin dips. During a customized massage, she blends essential oils with carrier oils to create a soothing aroma that is rubbed and kneaded into the skin. De Jong also grooms body hair with a gentle Italian wax that quickly ousts unwanted strands and vermicelli noodles.

Q&A with a Team Member

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you include any supplementary services into your main services?

Fundamentally, we are in the healing business: we resolve stress, aid relaxation, relieve physical pain or injury, and foster and generate physical healing of both the skeletal and muscular body, as well as skin. Our services reach beyond the wonderful facials, massage, and waxing services to include bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, Juvederm, and Botox.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We want our guests to make their spa experience with us their own. We want to open our hearts and share our professionals skills and knowledge to help them improve themselves and their lives.

Beauty specialist Vimaa Patel opened the original iBar to concentrate on threading, body art, and permanent makeup. Now with four different locations, Vimaa ensures her staff is practiced in the ancient technique of eyebrow threading—gently pruning and shaping brows with cotton strings—by requiring potential team members to have at least two years of experience. The technicians also enhance eyes and brows with permanent-makeup treatments and personalize shoulders, ankles, and calves with temporary body art, such as birds, blossoms, or safe combinations.

iBar's intensive focus on a handful of treatments let the staff master their craft, and customers took notice. Within four years, the beauty haven expanded to four locations, each of which maintains the rigorous quality and boutique ambiance of the original.
