Hess, a certified acne specialist, massage therapist, and aesthetician, combines her 25 years of experience with medical-grade skincare products to cleanse and clear complexions in customized facial treatments. During a custom Classique Essential facial, Dynese steams, cleanses, and polishes weary mugs before evicting freeloading grime from pores during extractions.

Alternatively, Dynese reins in out-of-control blemishes with prescription-free, clinical-therapy acne treatments for guests suffering from acne grades I to IV. Dynese will perform a skin analysis and collect intelligence on backgrounds, lifestyles, and espionage agents in order to apply the appropriate treatment and to propose a home-care regimen.
Sheldon Kiteboarding's two-hour semiprivate lessons teach the fundamentals of kiteboarding, an extreme watersport that fuses the wave-glissading maneuvers of wakeboarding with the air-propelling powers of windsurfing. The seasoned instructors kick things off with a land-based lesson before hitting the sea, giving students the opportunity to master the finer points of kite handling atop the safety net of soil. Pupils then take to the warm waters surrounding Sherman Island in Rio Vista, toting waterproof two-way radios to receive instructions, tips, and updates on the potential whereabouts of aquatic supervillains. Aptitude for plank proficiency dictates the tempo of the lesson, permitting students to learn at their own pace. Because sessions transpire in the morning and evening hours, Sheldon Kiteboarding recommends that guests bring a long suit to assist in braving the breezy weather and maintaining a level of professionalism while traipsing through Poseidon's office.
Perfect Locks has serious standards. All of the company's clip-ons, sew & weaves, wigs, and fusion and tape hair extensions undergo a four-step process: procurement, refining, cleansing and conditioning, and a double quality inspection. Hair is collected in India from women under age 35 in a part of the country with soft water. During the refinement process, each strand is inspected in order to weed out grays, non-matching textures, and follicles that aren't team players. A 100% organic shampoo kicks off the cleansing and conditioning step, followed by drying in the sun to keep cuticles intact. The last stage consists of two quality inspections—first in India, then in California—before wearers can finally don their new, high-quality locks.
