A lot of people get manicures and pedicures for the results. Nail Garden is intent on making sure their clients enjoy the process, as well. After settling into a pedicure chair with a cup of tea or glass of wine, your feet soak in a pipe-free basin with orange slices floating on the water's surface. Nail techs perform a hand or foot massage with each treatment, often using a warmed anti-oxidant oil.
And Nail Garden's techs promise that if your polish chips within the first 72 hours after you get your nails done, they'll redo it and you won't have to pay a single cent in return or give them one of your treasured livestock. These extra touches have drawn a noteworthy crowd, with Us Weekly reporting visits from celebs such as Vanessa Hudgens.
In addition to spa manicures and pedicures, the staff performs treatments such as lash tintings, lash-extension applications, and teeth whitening. Depending on the location, decor elements might include hand-blown light pendants or preserved trees.
When Edan Ezer was a boy growing up in Israel, he was so committed to becoming a barber that he left school at 16 to train at a local salon. When he was 18, he joined the Israeli Army and became popular for cutting hair at the army base and styling it with the downdraft of a helicopter. He eventually moved to Los Angeles to work alongside some of the best stylists in the world at high-end salons across Beverly Hills.
Since 2006 Edan has operated his own high-end salon, where he and his team work to pamper, relax, and rejuvenate clients. Stylists massage scalps and snip split ends before creating a sleek blowout that can last for days. For longer-lasting results, they straighten hair with Brazilian keratin treatments, which reduce frizz for months. Another popular Brazilian at the salon is its aesthetician, who removes hair with 100% pure honey and who brightens complexions with facials using natural skincare products.
Spoiled, A Day Spa is run by five forward-thinking veteran aestheticians with more than 70 years of experience combined. During the Triple Threat facial, a skilled skin pamperer implements a three-pronged purification mask designed to exfoliate, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and defy the laws of aging better than a freeze-dried Peter Pan. Infused with essential acids, retinol, and a fresh zesting of vitamin C, the Triple Threat richly nourishes skin, resulting in a radiant, natural, and even complexion. Treatments are by appointment only—phone ahead or mail a greeting card with your top 30 choices for an appointment time to reserve your session.
