As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
At Hollywood Glamour Day Resort, a certified aesthetician works with accomplished hair stylists and makeup artists to revamp their clients' look and confidence levels. The team uses luxurious product lines such as Moroccanoil haircare and Dermalogica skincare, as well as naturally based lines such as ?minence Organic and Saian that brim with gentle, sometimes herbal ingredients. Their roster of services also includes laser hair removal, eyelash extensions, and facials that target acne and wrinkles.
The staff maintains a tranquil space where clients can release the stresses of the day in a healthy manner, stocking the relaxation area with complimentary finger foods, teas, lemon water, and punching bags that can be customized to look like any boss.
The cosmetic enhancement professionals at Laser Clinique aesthetically improve the human form with or without sending it under the knife. Nonsurgical solutions to dermal imperfections include laser treatments and microdermabrasion, whereas surgical procedures more dramatically bolster physiques with implants, laser-assisted liposuction, and laser face-lifts.
Satori Laser Hair Removal's technology arsenal is a treasure trove of FDA-approved beauty treatments. There are the Candela lasers?the GentleYag, GentleLase, and GentleLase Pro?that harness a variety of wavelengths and power levels to erase unwanted hair from nearly any skin type. The spa's specialists call on expert training and viewings of lots of science-fiction movies to wield these devices in a range of noninvasive regimens.
When they?re not bettering clients with laser-based services, the staff at Satori Laser Hair Removal is improving the world at large. The spa donates 15% of its profits to charities such as the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Doctors Without Borders, and the International Rescue Committee, which helps people rebuild their lives after humanitarian crises.
The stylists at Beauty Affairs Salon don’t just see beauty as looking good—they see it as providing strength, condition, and health to each customer's hair. Inside their salon, they help clients reach their peaks both physically and mentally with cuts, color, and texturizing services; tranquil and invigorating facials; bridal makeup and updos; and facial and body waxing. They also apply intricate henna tattoos and perfect eyebrow arches with threading services that remove rogue hairs.
Warm tea, a massaging shampoo chair, and iPads loaded with digital versions of more than 120 magazines. These luxurious amenities are part of what sets Le Boudoir apart from other salons. But they aren't even the main reason to schedule a visit?just ask the clients who keep coming back for blowouts and makeup courtesy of the wizard-like Mamoune Tazi and his team of stylists.
Born in Morocco, Tazi spent years studying women's beauty treatments in France before opening his own studio on the other side of the Atlantic. Today, he continues to draw on his European training to infuse hair with silky, voluminous texture and amplify natural beauty with cosmetics. He designs each treatment to make clients feel gorgeous and confident, but the benefits don't end there; Tazi also donates a portion of his profits to local charities.
