Born and raised in California, poppy beauty bar's owners share a special affection for the Golden State. It seemed only natural, then, to name their beauty bar after the state’s official flower, the poppy. However, when choosing a color scheme for the spa, they opted for a delicate green rather than the bright yellow of the California poppy. The end result is a calming sanctuary whose beauty rivals that of any flower.
Today, the staff at poppy beauty bar focuses on skin care, nail services, and waxing. Vintage touches abound throughout the spa, though they sometimes serve a hidden purpose—the chic metal water buckets used for pedicures are, in fact, easier to clean and more sanitary than traditional foot baths. Clients can work with one of poppy's party planners to throw an in-salon party to celebrate a wedding shower, birthday, or the removal of a hangnail.
