A cast of aestheticians, massage therapists, and beauty professionals work under one roof at Nani Skin Care, where they keep skin glowing with help from products by Bioelements Professional Skin Care. Facials, customized to skin type and condition, incorporate deep cleansing with invigorating massage to restore a vibrant, youthful appearance to dull, aging complexions. Nani Skin care also offers an array of other treatments. For skin below the neck, the aestheticians administer a slew of spa treatments, including exfoliating salt glows and relaxing footbaths.
During 60- and 90-minute massages, aromatherapeutic scents guide muscles into relinquishing any stress or tension. Adults and teens alike can stop in for a Youngblood mineral-makeup lesson or schedule a makeup application to prepare for a wedding day or a night full of dancing and plotting to steal the queen’s crown.
Tucked into the historic Old Town Monrovia district, the boutique-style spa specializes in pampering treatments with an eco-friendly slant. With today's Groupon in toe or finger, guests will be treated to Y'Sharis' signature manicure and pedicure, complete with a lavender-infused touch. Toes are treated to warm enzyme bath, followed by an exfoliating treatment and relaxing massage. Ragged cuticles and coarse palms get TLC through a warm bath, relaxing massage, buffing, shaping, and polishing.
Named after the plant tissue that carries water and nutrients from the roots to the leaves, Xylem Aveda Salon & Spa infuses its clients' hair with nutrients via botanical treatments and masks. Stylists also mold manes using scissors and add pops of color to locks with highlights.
In partnership with Aveda, 1st Avenue Salon rolls out a fleet of services in the form of haircuts, color, bridal up-dos, and straightening treatments. An experienced team of mane masters consults each client before rearranging coiffures to match moods or backyard topiaries, and each team member soaks up weekly education seminars on the latest coloring techniques. A hotspot for handpicked products from renowned beauty brands such as Dermalogica and Moroccanoil, the beauty emporium also soothes epidermises with facials and body treatments that combine massage movements and detoxifying techniques to instill clients with a glow previously only achieved by standing in front of an open refrigerator.
