Only a short comb's throw from the Pacific Ocean, Delva beautifies strands from behind her styling chair at Bella Bella Salon. The skilled hair guru can revitalize brittle strands with a deep-conditioning treatment or revamp looks with precise cuts and vibrant colors that flatter clients' unique features and personalities. Guests may also request the salon's Keratin Complex frizz-reducing treatment, which is sure to prompt envious stares from friends, family, and curly fries.
At Drybar, a pair of scissors or hair-coloring foil is nowhere to be found. That’s because the business’s founder, Alli Webb, opened the shop strictly for blowouts after her in-home business skyrocketed. Featured extensively in the media, each of the more than 25 white-hued, airy shops revolves around a center bar where customers sit for around 45 minutes as stylists blow-dry, straighten, and curl their hair. From a menu booklet, clients select a cocktail-themed hairstyle, such as The Mai Tai, which imparts beachy waves, and The Manhattan, which streamlines locks with a sleek finish that mimics the straight lines of downtown New York and can be outfitted with a tiny doorman who hails cabs for you. The staff at Drybar also crafts updos, travels on location for an additional fee, offers high-end products and tools available for purchase, and tallies bar tabs so that customers can pay for multiple blowouts at once.
Registered nurse Britta Wetteskind, R.N., under the direction of medical director Brian Levine, M.D., has demonstrated her skin-smoothing and anti-aging treatments for Good Day LA and Riviera magazine. She helps clients rewind dermal odometers with injectable dermal fillers designed to tighten sagging skin, smooth wrinkles, and lighten age spots. Her signature HydraFacial has been shown to shrink facial pores, calm hyperpigmentation, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles in about 20 minutes. Britta also offers holistic services such as weight-loss plans.
The technicians at Jannae Beauty Institute—a leader in nonsurgical cosmetic procedures since 2007—use a proprietary, four-step process to make their beauty-boosting treatments efficient, effective, and comfortable. First, they analyze clients' bodies in order to prescribe the most effective course of treatment. Afterwards, they offer recommendations regarding nutrition, lifestyle, and dietary supplements to promote overall health. Then they perform an advanced med-spa procedure using cutting edge technology—whether it's radio-frequency photonics for a facial or a laser pointer for a play date with a kitten. Jannae Beatuy Institute's procedures have led to them being featured on Good Day LA. Finally, the staffers make sure to design a maintenance plan so the procedure's results last over a longer period of time.
