When she became a licensed aesthetician more than eight years ago, Monica Lucero already had a steady client: herself. Having suffered from acne as a teenager, she'd started learning about skincare in an effort to clear her own skin. Monica started to channel her own experience into a caring attitude toward her clients through Changes Salon in Walnut Creek and Le Jardin in Pleasant Hill, and today, at Cosi Bella Day Spa. In all of her services?which range from chemical peels to facial waxing?she strives to cultivate an atmosphere that, like a solid-gold beanbag chair, will leave people feeling both pampered and relaxed.
Felecia Rincon knows that sugar can do a lot more than sweeten her coffee and stand in for snow on a ski slope. At Bare Sugaring Studio, she uses it to remove unwanted hair, practicing a spa treatment that goes back centuries. Applied opposite the direction of hair growth, her sugar-based paste sinks deep within the follicle, deeper than wax, to grip the hair at its root. When Felecia removes the paste, she takes with it the short, fine hairs that other epilation techniques miss, and even removes dead skin, leaving the legs, chests, chin, or any other body area, smooth and sleek.
Nails Forever owner DJ West bounded into beauty school at the tender age of 16, and by age 18, she had her license, a job, and a dream that would lead her to San Francisco. There, her skills were sharpened in salons studding Union Square and Polk Street. Her desire to open her own salon brought her back to Contra Costa County, where she's been keeping fingertips looking tip-top since 1981. Her passion for painting and fine art is reflected in her hand-based handiwork, which often includes one-of-a-kind looks ranging from leopard-print nails to bejeweled holiday designs, and she's won no fewer than five trophies at nail-design competitions. She also specializes in Shellac application and excels in acrylic extensions, which typically hold up better than the old-fashioned wooden kind.
At Trendy Nails, pink curtains cascade between plush pedicure thrones, lending clients a bit of personal space as nail technicians fuss about their feet with masks and files.

Inside a studio half immersed in tropical tones and half ensconced in an opulent Parisian scheme, Le Belle Nails & Spa's technicians refine both halves of the human body with luxurious nail services. Clients bask amid island hues as pedicurists soak and soften feet for 30 minutes. After filing toenails, buffing them, and lavishing them with a polish chosen from nearly 100 colors, nail mavens escort clients to the deep burgundy surroundings of a manicure station. A photo of the Eiffel Tower, which hasn't been trimmed in decades, gazes longingly at nails and cuticles as they're groomed and buffed into shape. Clients can adorn fingers with standard polish to complement gleaming tootsies or opt for a 60-minute shellac manicure that drapes finger helmets in a sturdier coat. A quick stint beneath a UV lamp holds the lacquer fast, ensuring weeks of smudge- and scuff-free high fives, back pats, and bongo-drum solos.
