In a brightly lit studio surrounded by leafy plants and colorful wall art, Epitome Salon's expert aestheticians spruce up skin and clarify faces using Ayur-Medic beauty products. Faces dulled from anteater impersonations can de-stress and distill themselves of impurities with an Epitome facial, which employs an oxygen-infusing concoction that's suitable for most skin types, except those that are acne-prone. Alternatively, the microdermabrasion starts with a thorough cleansing before scrubbing away stagnant cells. Finally, faces are festooned with a calming mask and a moisture treatment to leave skin as new and youthful as a freshly hatched dolphin cub.
The techs at Beauty Connection run the gamut of aesthetic services as they primp and preen clients from head to toe. Skincare specialists revive faces with exfoliation, extractions, and masks using products by Dermalogica. Nail stylists perform manicures and pedicures with SpaRitual's vegan nail lacquers, which coat talons in bold hues free of harmful substances such as DBP, formaldehyde, toluene, and hate. Staffers also can embellish ocular regions with permanent makeup and eyelash extensions, or prune fuzzy regions with wax. Meanwhile, a certified massage therapist with more than a decade of experience kneads stressed sinews with an arsenal of modalities including thai, Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, and hot stone.

For busy men and women or evil stepsisters who have just found out that a prince is near, the shop also offers curbside pickup and free local delivery. Those who have a little time to relax are tended to by a staff of hair stylists and a clinical aesthetician for waxing, facials, and blowouts.
At "Be Luminous" By NaNa, located within Sigal Gevojanyan Salon in Westwood, aesthetician Nana maximizes natural beauty with treatments that are both relaxing and beneficial.

Hot-stone therapy, reflexology, and body scrubs induce blissful relaxation.
Sigal Gevojanyan's sizable, multitalented roster approaches beautification and relaxation from all angles with its lengthy list of services for the hair, skin, and body.

The spacious, two-story salon and spa’s secluded treatment rooms grant privacy for body-wrap sessions and waxing, while its manicure area allows guests to socialize as they indulge their hands in a cocoa shea-butter soak and a fresh coat of nail polish.
