Hundreds of clients come to Escada Hair And Beauty Spa for their hair- and skincare needs. As a result, owner Cheryl Germano and her staff have made lots of new friends, but their affability is equally present when working with first-time visitors. Staffers help clients choose a new hairstyle, perhaps adding highlights, all-over color, or permanent waves. The beauty experts also pierce ears and refresh skin with facials, including a treatment specifically designed for men.
No matter how much tension they work out of muscles, how many updos they sculpt, or how many times clients request they make lightsaber sounds during laser hair removal, the staff at The Galleria Day Spa keeps learning about the latest beauty and health trends. This devotion to continuing education informs each service, from bikini waxes to gel manicures. Skin treatments, such as facials and peels, rely on formulas from Dermalogica and GlyMed Plus, and the staff reaches for similarly high-end products from Paul Mitchell and Moroccanoil during salon services.
With today's Groupon, $50 gets you $100 at Patrick Evan Salon & Spa—the Best Thermal Reconditioning Specialists in San Francisco according to Allure and 7x7 magazines—located on the fourth floor of 55 Grant Ave. There's a reason Patrick Evan has a perfect five-star average on both Citysearch and Yelp: the staff is incredibly talented at making you look and feel gorgeous.
M.Y. Salon & Day Spa's staff knows how to pamper everywhere from the temples to the toenails, ensuring that clients leave feeling confident and relaxed. The stylists can design fetching new looks by cutting, coloring, or texturizing tresses, and the aestheticians revitalize countenances by incorporating nourishing ingredients like seaweed extract or crumbled meteorites into their facials. Nail and waxing treatments also keep clients looking sharp. Massage therapists extend care to beneath the surface, using Swedish, deep-tissue, or orthopedic techniques to help relieve muscular tension and improve mental clarity.
Glitter tattoos. Nail art. Costumes. These are just some of the shimmery items A Girl’s Place’s stylists load up their cars with when bringing the party to a birthday girl or teen's home. They sling goody bags over their shoulders, tote along hair tools and style books, and brandish palettes of face paints that can cleverly disguise the family dog as a teen pop star. Extras, such as candy buffets and edible crafts, can embellish pre-curated party packages, while themed soirees can focus on topics such as face-painting, dancing, or American Girl dolls.
The expert nail-wranglers at Forever-French Salons specialize in long-lasting, hand-pampering nail care. Their classic mani-pedi will banish snagging edges and clinging hangnails, leaving hands and feet perkily scrubbed and glossily polished. A signature acrylic or gel set flatters fingers for up to four weeks and makes biological nails as tough as construction nails. Especially tactile customers may opt for the no-chip manicure, which prettifies with polish that lasts up to 12 days without scratches, divots, or public tantrums.
