Along the quaint, well-preserved streets of Kenneth Village, Ariada Salon and Spa's vintage exterior conceals a three-floor haven for modern beauty services. Inside, at mirrored stations, stylists specialize in hair coloring, Brazilian blowouts, haircuts, and styling, prepping the hair and nails of guests with OPI polishes and Seven Luxury Hair Care and Moroccanoil conditioners. Body and facial waxing services are also available. An onsite boutique equips clients with Witchy Poo Lotions & Potions and True Apothecary Candles, which can be combined at home to amplify a relaxing bath or invoke the beautifying intervention of Venus. The in-store boutique sells cosmetics and candles in addition to hair- and body-care products.
Ala Mode Hair Studio's name is fitting, given that its decor evokes a luscious dessert. Vanilla white walls complement caramel-hued ceilings and chocolate wood accents. The cherry on top is Ani Davytan, who transform strands with flattering layers and confident color highlights. Clients may also solicit Ani for an invigorating tea-tree treatment, which can renovate hair damaged by upkeep or low-flying helicopters.
GlamMe Beauty Studio?s team travel to homes, places of work, and dentists? offices to pamper clients. They also work at 11 salons in LA and surrounding areas. Stylists cut hair, magically grow hair with extensions, and embellish strands with semipermanent color and highlights. They also beautify nails during mani-pedis, wax away fuzz on faces, and add drama to peepers with eyelash extensions.
High above Chateau’s porcelain sinks and custom-built pedicure benches hangs a crystal-blue chandelier. This pristine centerpiece hints at the salon’s beauty and cleanliness. The shop relies on single-use implements, backflow prevention bowls, and hospital-grade cleaners. Amid regal accents such as that chandelier, trained nail techs slough away dead skin with organic exfoliating scrubs and decorate nails with polishes by OPI, essie, and CND. The chatter of stylist consultations, which cover transformative haircuts and bold color highlights to frame the face, drifts through the salon. The staff also wields a range of hair-removing waxes and the skills necessary to massage the sore muscles of whoever paints those huge faces onto Mount Rushmore every day.
With service names such as Aphrodisiac and M?nage ? Trois, F?tiche Beauty Lounge urges its male and female clientele to embrace their sexy side. Their stylists create centerfold-ready looks with hair styling and makeup applications, and forge glossy locks with conditioning treatments that infuse damaged strands with moisture and protein. Packages include An Affair to Remember, a session that treats brides to champagne and cake as they have their hair and makeup done, then subjects them to videos of puppies learning to walk to ensure the mascara is tear-proof.
