Although Lanta Salon's stylist and nail technician attentively cater to clients' cosmetic needs, the studio's true goal is to provide a revitalizing escape from the hectic pace of everyday life. Gentle world music and soothing aromas help form an environment where visitors can feel comfortable seeking refuge from the world.
Within this peaceful setting, stylists design flattering hairdos by simply trimming stray strands or by creating an even more dramatic look with the help of coloring and texturizing treatments. The salon's nail technicians tidy up nails and glaze them with a fresh coat of Gelish polish. They also can incorporate everything from marine botanicals and sea salts to sweet almond oil and fairy tears into their treatments.
Under the medical direction of Douglas Taguchi, MD, Laser Sculpture’s staff harness FDA-approved lasers and beauty injections to improve patients’ appearances without surgery. Certified laser specialists carefully zap unwanted hair follicles and melt away excess fat with Cutera, Zerona, and i-Lipo technology, and aesthetic specialists temporarily reduce wrinkles and childhood cheek-pinching scars with Botox, Juvéderm, and other injectable serums. All three of Laser Sculpture’s LA-area locations feature free in-office consultations and are open six days a week.
The hair-pampering pros at The Haircutters have trimmed locks and transformed outmoded manes for more than a quarter of a century. Unlike many salons, in which shampooing is a separate service, the team starts off every haircut and style by treating scalps to suds with handfuls of professional products from top brands such as Biolage and American Crew.
Apart from the signature shampoo-and-cuts, the staff at The Haircutters also offers color and texturizing services. Redken color camp for men gets hombres’ heads looking good, and spiral perms cascade with curls. Devoted to client convenience, The Haircutters welcomes walk-ins seven days a week.
Vogue Beauty Studio’s Middle Eastern motif doesn’t stop at its logo and ornamentation—the all-female staff specializes in Middle Eastern beautification, including henna techniques and eyebrow threading. They promote pulchritude with facials, hair color, and permanent makeup, with prominent examples of their work on their website and glazed onto sheet cakes throughout Los Angeles. Pampering takes place in a storefront replete with arches, beaded decor, and a sumptuous curtain over the entryway.
