Bay Thai Massage doesn’t just offer traditional Swedish and deep-tissue massages. The studio's massage therapists use a number of specialized tools including bamboo rods and green tea essential oils to soften tense muscles. And during the salon’s namesake thai massage, therapists use their full bodies to work out knots. They walk on backs and sit on legs, pulling clients into a cobra position to release tension and warm smaller cobras to keep away.

Marta Wozniak, owner of Blu Laguna Salon and Spa, was training at the prestigious Pivot Point International Academy in Chicago when she decided to put her hairdressing skills to the test at the Midwest Beauty Show. This proved to be a wise move, as she won first place out of 132 other competitors from across the country. Her triumph caught the eye of beauty heavyweights at Elizabeth Arden's Red Door Spa, who brought her on staff and launched her career in the salon world. Eventually, Marta shifted her focus to the sunny scenery of California, where she worked in a few salons before opening her own.
True to its name, the decor of Blu Laguna evokes the feel of a tranquil shoreline. Dangling glass bubbles bend the image of ocean-blue walls in the waiting area, which leads onto a mod, minimalist salon floor whose stark blue and white color scheme is only interrupted by the solitary flower that adorns each styling station. Here, Marta's staff of salon and spa experts—made up of a diverse combination of pros fresh to the industry and those with more than two decades in the business—brightens exteriors with haircuts, skincare, massages, and makeup services. When they aren't polishing clients, the specialists are sharpening their skills in fashion shows, photo shoots, and guerrilla makeovers on unsuspecting crossing guards.
Laguna Canyon Spa may be a touch off the beaten path—the wellness center rests at the edge of Laguna Coast Wilderness Park—but that just means the facility's surroundings match its tranquil interior. After all, it's there that massage therapists perform more than 10 massage styles, including the ancient techniques of Ayurvedic and shiatsu. It's also where yoga and Pilates instructors guide students through postures using mats, reformers, and wall tower equipment, and where aestheticians tend to aging, dehydrated, and acneic skin types using the muds and herbs of eight types of facials. But though the wellness center is usually as serene as a glockenspiel solo, it can still be a fun place to party. The center plays host to birthday and bachelorette parties, during which guests enjoy spa packages that can include jewelry making and henna tattoos.
Equipped with all-natural Aveda products, the stylists at Salon La Mer & Spa update hair with styling services for men and women. Each service begins with a personal consultation, wherein the stylist considers the client's hair texture and lifestyle and maintenance desires before creating an ideal new look. The salon and spa provides more than haircare, though. It pampers guests with Epicuren Discovery facials and skin treatments, as well as nailcare, makeup, and hair removal. And, unlike traditional salons and spas, Salon La Mer & Spa offers med-spa services, such as skin-tightening and Botox sessions.
