Before Art Stone was head of Total Woman Gym & Spa, he ran a chain of salons. His female clientele loved their custom cuts, but California had no shortage of stylists—what they really struggled to find was day-spa pampering and weight-loss assistance, all in one spot. Stone listened, and in 1965, created precisely the sanctuary they were looking for.

The lash artists at Lashes on Broadway beautify clients with highly customizable synthetic mink extensions, varying in size, weight, and color. The staff also pampers guests waxing services and offers lash training for aspiring lash artists.
At Royal Skin Therapy, owner and resident aesthetician Zianna incorporates relaxing aromatherapy and essential oils into all customized facials, which end with massages for scalps, feet, or upper backs. Other beautifying services available include tinting for brows and lashes, and waxing for men and women alike. Using pigments free of iron-oxide, Zianna can also apply permanent eyeliner, brow fills, and lip color that won't fade for at least 5 years and that far outlast earlier forms of permanent makeup, such as rose petals superglued to your cheeks.
Kenneth Brown Salons feels as much like a spacious artist's loft as a salon, with super-high ceilings, low chandeliers, and modern hanging lights that look like downturned wine glasses. Amid these warm accents, skilled stylist Korrie Medina chisels out voluminous layers and decorates with custom color highlights. Clients may also solicit the salon for a swift brow wax or one-on-one makeup consultation.
