With dozens of locations sprinkled around the sunshine state, California Sun makes it easy for tanners to bronze without fear of sunburn. As sunless bathers daydream within two levels of Ergoline beds, melanin rises to the skin's surface at the beck and call of a high-pressure cooling system or adjustable face tanners, leaving bodies with a golden glow in just 10–12 minutes. For those who prefer the misty kiss of a sunless spray tan, formulas by VersaSpa, Mystic Tan, or Norvell grace guests with new shades that can last from four to seven days and won't leave skin looking unnaturally orange or supernaturally blue.

At Esthetics by Jess, located within Regent Street Salon, the eponymous owner and aesthetician pampers faces with a variety of treatments that aim to rehab skin. Jess believes that good skincare is akin to vacuuming—you can really see where you’ve worked and where you haven’t. And though she knows that skin will never do exactly what you want, she wants to do what she can to keep it healthy.
So Jess draws on her seven years of experience to perform anti-aging, cleansing, and chemical facials, as well as back treatments. During each session, she thoroughly analyzes skin before slathering on the appropriate high-quality, natural product. After facials, Jess recommends a personalized skincare regimen and good library book.
Despite its tranquil atmosphere and soothing services, visiting Inner Harmony Massage just for relaxation might be setting the bar too low. Some of its therapists possess more than two decades of experience, and all continue to hone their expertise through educational endeavors such as specialized certifications, workshops, and even the teaching of others. As a result, the massages they provide?which range from traditional Swedish strokes to firmer, more focused sports and deep-tissue work?are designed not just to promote relaxation, but to get at the root of what ails their clients, whether it's pain, lack of mobility, or diminished athletic performance from running with both shoelaces tied together. To extend the relief as long as possible, the therapists perform a post-massage consultation that grants clients with tips on stretches, relaxation techniques, ergonomic devices, athletic warm-ups, and other ways to keep muscles limber and relaxed.
From styling celebrity hair to revitalizing complexions with relaxing facials, the team at Willo Aveda, an Aveda concept salon, aims to fill local mirrors with visions of beauty. Stylists of five different experience levels wash and rinse hair before breathing new life into languishing strands with a tailored cut and blow-dry. Alternatively, hair artisans can deploy Aveda's 97%?99% naturally derived formulas to refresh hair with a single-process color or nourish locks with conditioning plant oils that leave hair shinier than a freshly licked ring pop. The stylists at Willo Aveda also stay engaged with their clients through an active blog that celebrates lauded hair happenings. Most recently, the business collaborated with other Aveda salons to help set a Guinness World Record for the most money raised for charity in 24 hours through haircuts alone.
