Bikini Beach Cutz's band of bikini-clad beauties cuts and styles hair, and administers soothing scalp massages as clients sip a complimentary beer. Amid radiant wall colors and a sunset mural, both men and women are welcome to perch atop barbershop thrones and indulge in a haircut package from any of the five lovely style sorceresses. Armed with Paul Mitchell hair products, stylists snip and shampoo clients' strands—a lifesaving procedure for those often mistaken for bears by rifle-wielding hunters. A subsequent scalp massage eases tension, and a cold beer satiates jealous taste buds.
Pillowy dollops of icing sit atop Caketails Cupcakes’ gourmet miniature cupcakes, whose flavors find inspiration in classic fruit and chocolate cocktails. Though free of alcohol and perilous olive spears, each pintsize dozen packs in the tempting tastes of drinks such as piña coladas, mimosas, and strawberry daiquiris. Lift a round of champagne cupcakes high into the air for a poignant post-dinner toast, stage impromptu fiestas on palates with the moist cake of the margarita, or bob for cherries nestled into the icing of caramel appletinis. After a 48-hour advance order, cupcakes pop out of the oven and don crowns of fluffy frosting studded with decorative treats such as chocolate, fruit, and gummy candies.
Salon Envy's staff cossets hair, skin, and nails with natural Aveda products and expert techniques. Stylists imbue hair with highlights and alluring cuts, smooth strands with Brazilian blowouts and Juvexin, and twirl curls into updos for special occasions such as weddings and proms. As aestheticians exfoliate, massage, polish, and imprint appendages in Grauman's cement, water swirls in a hexagonal pedicure tub and guests recline in a plush leather armchair. The beauty buffs also enliven complexions with facials, eyelash extensions, whisker-slaying electrolysis, and massages.
Picasso Day Spa & Salon takes its name from salon founder David Manaute's favorite artist. In many ways, the stylists channel the painting paragon by treating their clients as though they were canvases, using haircuts, color, waxing, and airbrush tanning to achieve an artistic personal aesthetic. The team makes its process collaborative, though, soliciting input from clients when coming up with a style, unlike Picasso—he pretended not to hear the things his canvases said. Their services take place in a building as equally beautiful as the custom looks they craft for clients. The spa's decor showcases a European atmosphere, and reproductions of Picasso's artwork hang on the walls.
