The cuticle shapers at Costa Verde Nails coddle hands and feet during manicure and pedicure treatments with warm towels, light massage, and kaleidoscopic ensembles from a rainbow of polish and Shellac colors. While lounging in the comfort of a cream-colored treatment chair, guests can pluck potato slices from the environs' scalloped upholstery, which is joined by sheer drapes and inset lighting.
A bronze Buddha statue greets guests at the entrance of Costa La Jolla Nails, setting a serene scene for those indulging in nail services within the salon’s airy confines. Plush, cream-colored chairs seat pedicure patrons as they dip toes or stiff leather boots into a footbath, playing host to a variety of pedicure treatments that can be enhanced with exfoliating sea-salt scrubs and cooling masks to fully de-stress soles. The salon’s row of treatment tables comes dressed in orchids and outfitted with a resident nail artist, who can dress up hands with pampering polishings or artificial nail enhancements. Clients can upgrade manicures with a CND Shellac polish that coats talons in a long-lasting blend that deflects manicure-marring imperfections such as chips, smudges, and stamped expiration dates. In addition to pampering digits, the in-house aestheticians depilate fuzz from faces and bodies with waxing treatments and clear and smooth complexions in full or express facials.
The salty smell of the ocean, the cool breeze off the Pacific, and the sun's warm rays touching your skin. You can experience all of these at Belle La Vie Spa?and that's before you even walk in the door. Located in San Diego, Belle La Vie might be considered an oasis if it weren't surrounded by such natural beauty. Still, clients may feel as if they've been swept away into a different world entirely thanks to aestheticians and hair stylists who dote on them at every turn. Aside from traditional hair, body, and nail treatments, Belle La Vie specializes in microdermabrasion facials that gently exfoliate skin to reduce the appearance of blemishes.
Fluorescent lights linger overhead like pats of butter, casting a glow on sunflower-yellow cabinetry and charcoal-black wood floors. Amid these modern accents, highly trained stylists engineer face-flattering layers and wrangle curls with Japanese and Brazilian straightening treatments. Clients may also solicit the salon for an aromatherapy mani-pedi, bold color highlights, or swift hair removal with a signature waxing or threading session.
Given Salon Sol's name, the space is fittingly illuminated with natural light from from large front windows. A warm shade of yellow also covers the salon's walls and cabinetry. Amid these cozy accents, skilled stylists renovate tresses with hair treatments aided by products from Bosley, Pureology, Enjoy, American Crew, and Moroccanoil. The salon also offers invigorating facials, which penetrate deep into pores to rid the skin of dirt and grime, along with waxing and threading. In addition, Salon Sol pampers guests with mani-pedis, each of which come with a complimentary reflexology treatment.
The aesthetic team at XO Day Spa beautifies physiques in multiple ways. They draw attention to the eyes with eyelash extensions, snip locks into face-flattering looks, or brighten skin with microdermabrasion treatments that buff away dead skin, minimizing fine lines and acne. To further enhance their visages, visitors can paint on products from the spa’s own mineral-makeup line, which enhances features more effectively than using minerals such as rocks and stuff to beautify the skin’s surface. Nail techs also polish off facades with Shellac products, acrylic nails, and spa mani-pedis, and stylists offer hair services, including highlights. Alternatively, massage therapists can knead clients’ musculatures with gentle Swedish strokes, deep tissue’s more intense pressure, or styles such as aromatherapy and hot stone.
