Scattered throughout the peninsula, Natalie Salon Inc.'s five locations each house a team of specialists who pamper and beautify guests during nail, waxing, hair, and facial services. Staffers make over bodies from head to toe, rejuvenating faces with facials and treating dull talons to manicures and pedicures. They hone in on hair all over the body, waxing away unwanted fur, arranging lackluster strands into stylish coiffures, and tinting eyebrows to match recently dyed locks or recently dry-cleaned banana suits.
Redwood City Lotus Spa’s expert staff works to chisel edifices into slimmer versions of themselves using electro body sculpting, a cutting-edge treatment that aims to reduce cellulite and body fat using gentle pulses of electrical stimulation. During the 90-minute procedure a seasoned tech will strap the electrodes to your belly, butt, thighs, arms, or secret robot control panel before dispatching a fleet of vivifying energy currents. Clients can kick back and relax during treatment, as electro sculpting tones muscle without requiring any physical exertion on the part of the client, yielding little to no sweat or soreness. For some stomachs, the experience may be the equivalent of performing 600 crunches, or folding 10 origami swans with the abs.
A large flat-screen TV resides at one end of Donna Salon, entertaining clients as they sit before mirrored stations or underneath hair dryers. Floral bouquets add a touch of tranquility as technicians revamp manes with cuts and color. Elsewhere, they perform invigorating facials and customize digits with nail art in the form of hearts, stars, or grocery lists.
What makes it great: couples packages that include champagne and chocolates, treatments that utilize high-end products by Pavona and SkinCeuticals, refreshment bar, an on-staff chiropractor, and a boutique stocked with products from Aquiesse and Hanky Panky
The staff at Bellagio Nails & Spa makes over hands and feet with 10 different types of mani-pedis. Though every treatment trims and shapes nails, the aestheticians also add therapeutic touches based on their clients' skin conditions and beauty goals. During the Bellagio signature mani-pedi, the staff scrubs with a creative sea-salt glow that's specifically designed for dry skin, and during their Citrus Paradise mani-pedi, appendages dip into a detoxifying fruit bath comprised of lemon, orange, and lime slices. During these services, clients lounge atop cushioned pedicure chairs and drop their feet into a handcrafted glass bowl as the trickling sounds of a fountain cultivate a relaxing ambiance. Staffers also wax off unwanted hair and leftover werewolf fur from head to toe.
A tranquil metropolitan sanctuary, Oasis Day Spa?s menu of body-wide services provides clients with a respite where relaxation meets skin renewal. Aestheticians treat epidermises with proven products, such as MD Formulation, to vivify corporeal kingdoms without harmful chemicals. Skin specialists sooth fa?ades with facials employing Mother Nature's finest, including antioxidants, oxygen, and mermaid tears, and mow down rogue fringe with waxing services for brows, bikinis, backs, and more. Tension gives up its hold on muscles as massage practitioners usher in new realms of relaxation during Swedish, deep-tissue, and shiatsu massages, and nonsurgical, gentle power-peel treatments carry dead skin cells to more peaceful resting places to reveal younger looking skin.
