Licensed aesthetician Dana Quinn can be found at Bonne Vivante Beauty Lounge seven days a week, where she applies facials, paints nails, and waxes unwanted fuzz. Her flexible scheduling is one way she shows her clients hospitality; her complimentary glasses of champagne, coffee, or fruit-infused water, which guests sip while surfing with WiFi in plush green and orange velour armchairs, are another. When it's time for their services, clients slip into a bright blue treatment room, where they enjoy an unusual level of privacy.
After their treatments, visitors can show off their new looks by mingling on the terrace of the revamped motel that the lounge occupies. Along with law offices, creative firms, and massage therapists, Dana's lounge brings new purpose to this retro office park, whose Googie-style sign harkens back to the Atomic Age, when people believed that objects were made from tiny particles called "atoms.
Euphoria Nails & Spa's technicians maintain immaculate service stations, creating a welcoming yet pervasively clean environment. The front room even has a mini palm tree and flip-flops all over the wall, remnants of Spider-Man's vacations at this spa. High-backed new leather massaging pedicure chairs welcome guests into the pedicure room, which showcases colorful artwork on soft pink and gray walls. Beyond the pedicure area, a cluster of private rooms offers a quiet refuge for aestheticians to perform European facials and a host of waxing services.
Customers can commence their visit to Lavish Salon & Spa by sipping a complimentary glass of wine or steamy tea while lounging in a handsome sitting room bedecked with a flickering fireplace. The Pure and Simple facial serves up a short and sweet second course of luxury, featuring 30 minutes of cleansing, exfoliation, massage, hydration, and more ($45+). Waxing treatments for areas including the chin ($15) and basic bikini line ($30) seek to unseat stubborn strands using warmed glamour-goo and copious Karate Kid references. The Brazilian wax, named after famed hair-eradicator Bartleby Brazil, is designed to whisk away weeks’ worth of mid-body bristles in fewer than 45 minutes, leaving those treated with ample time to pluck what is ripe from the metaphoric watermelon tree ($55).
Nail technicians at O Blu Nails and Spa attune every service to their clients' comfort and goals in a welcoming setting with cozy, contemporary décor. During Shellac manicures, a professional nail technician trims nails and doctors cuticles before blanketing fingertips in a mirror-like Shellac polish that lasts up to two weeks without chipping or sneaking off to visit toes. A 30-minute pedicure supplements standard nail and cuticle services with a quick hot-stone massage and a dip in paraffin wax to soften and smooth the skin. During the 45-minute signature deluxe facial, a skin analysis helps the aesthetician fashion a customized approach to match the client’s particular skin type and needs. Clouds of steam and a moisturizing mask cleanse and exfoliate the complexion, and a gentle face massage fosters circulation and relieved smiles.
