After spending a handful of years crunching numbers for her family's car business, Doran Poma decided to pursue a passion for skincare that she developed as a teenager. Since completing beauty school in 2006 and becoming a licensed aesthetician in 2007, Doran has used her expertise to clear the complexions of numerous clients, including a woman in her 50s who'd been dealing with acne since her teens. This April, Doran began running her skincare operation out of a gut-rehabbed salon, where she uses phytomer and Jan Marini products to pamper clients with specialized facials designed to treat conditions ranging from acne and discoloration to wrinkles in the time-space continuum.

Certified massage practitioner Ian Edwards prefers to use firmer massage techniques, which are better at targeting pain and tension deep within muscles. At his spa, Five Point Palm Massage, he maneuvers between Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger point, and other modalities to customize each massage to the needs of the customer. He can also focus on specific areas of pain such as the back, neck and shoulders, or legs and feet.

Armed with ace styling skills, savvy scissors, and friendly personalities, Artisans’ hair whisperers coax and tease manes into top shape seven days a week. Shrewd shears evict split ends at haircut appointments ($55+), while negative ions scare strands straight at Japanese straightening sessions ($150 for the first hour, $100 for each additional hour). An ammonia-free tint touch-up makes dull head threads glow anew, attracting the ghosts of ravers past ($75+). Guests seeking more length or volume may try a bundle of 100% human-hair extensions, adding beehives and mohawks to their list of potential date-night ’dos ($400 for the first bundle). The circlets of a new perm spring from scalps, suggesting youth and energy ($110+).

Owner and licensed aesthetician Luciana Mueller trained in Brazil and uses natural waxes imported from Brazil to gently extricate unwelcome tendrils and smoothen sensitive areas for up to five weeks. Lip waxing ($15) encourages silken smooches, and eyebrow shaping ($15) enables newly beautified faces to express the gamut of human emotion—from happiness to unbridled happiness—in utmost style. Defuzz underams ($20) and lower arms ($35) or prep for the beach with a Brazilian bikini wax ($65). Waxing provides longer-lasting hairlessness than shaving, and when the hair does come back after a few weeks, it's meek, soft, and easily scared back into the follicle with banging pans or the threat of another round of wax.

Working under board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. David S. Goldberg, Monterey Skin Fitness Center’s licensed aestheticians work to halt the march of time with an array of skin-plumping peels and injections. Aestheticians offer guidance during every step of each treatment with a full evaluation and explanations for postpeel care. The 30–45 minute MicroPeel curbs breakouts, smooths wrinkles, and conditions and protects formerly fraught faces to maintain a freshly peeled appearance. The peel's immediate results make it ideal for a last-minute spruce on the way to extreme staring contests. Refinity peels take about 30 minutes to renew skin with a gentle application of glycolic acid, while protecting it with Cosmederm-7, a patented anti-irritation ingredient that reduces postpeel grouchiness for sensitive skin. Treat pimple-prone pores with a Vi peel, which lifts away scum, sun spots, and the appearance of scars while firming the skin. The 20-minute Vi peel yields visible results after about four days; results are maximized over multiple treatments.

In order to emulate the eco-friendly attitude of the LEED-certified Portola Hotel and Spa that surrounds it, Jack's Restaurant and Lounge regularly culls regional, sustainable ingredients for its contemporary takes on breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes. With the help of Chef Jason Giles' culinary imagination, Jack's adds innovative flavors to items such as naturally raised beef from Harris Ranch and seafood chosen in support of the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program, which helps to prevent over-fishing of threatened and endangered ocean life. Small plates of baked scallops lounge on the half-shell, while waiters usher basil-crusted Pacific sole to tables on the heated patio surrounded by edible velvet ropes. Wines poured at the lounge highlight the vineyards and wineries of Monterey County, and fair-trade organic coffees and teas are sourced from Peerless Coffee Company, a Northern California staple for more than 86 years.
