A community-concept salon, Lipstick & Bullets Beauty Bar is home to a network of salon professionals who perform high-end cut-and-color services. These stylists specialize in the latest color-and-texturizing trends, but they're also well versed in classic 1950s-pinup and bohemian-inspired styles. In addition, they provide a specialty line of hair extensions, "X-tensions," which lengthen hair more effectively than that time you spiked your mousse with Miracle-Gro.
Following appointments at Lipstick & Bullets Beauty Bar, customers can stroll around the corner to Sherman Cellars, the official tasting room of Creekview Vineyards. There, they'll find gourmet pairings of wine and chocolate. The tasting room's specialists guide guests through each pairing, explaining the complementary flavors of the treats.
Trained aestheticians and laser technicians at Rejuvenis Skincare's medical spa illuminate—and then quickly alleviate—epidermal concerns using FDA-approved SoftLight lasers and other skin treatments. The medical-spa staff employs a wide spectrum of colored beams to focus in on nuanced body areas and remove hair, melt away excess cellulite, correct hyperpigmentation, or break down inks to remove tattoos and permanent sponsorship logos. Microdermabrasion and chemical facials using AHA glycolic-, salicylic-, or lactic-acid peels help to erase skin woes such as acne and wrinkles without bursts of light, yet clients often still hear disco music in their heads.
Orchid Bloom Spa inspires beauty and balance with practices from Thailand and Hungary. A Thai herbal massage relieves deep-seated tension with intense stretches as the essential oils of tumeric, lemongrass, and bergamot tickle the inner senses. Treatments deploy a selection of organic Hungarian products and Thailand's Harnn products, which the spa stocks for use at home or after a hard day at the abacus. Upon arriving at the spa, clients can sip a soothing strawberry beverage while relaxing in the sunlit waiting area.
When Dr. Minh Le practiced as a medical doctor, he treated thousands of in-need patients for a mere $25 per visit. Nowadays, his focus has shifted towards cosmetic treatments, but his practice still prioritizes accessibility for all budgets. At Vienna Skin Clinic, he and his team use cost-effective, state-of-the-art treatments to help skin look its best, deploying Elos-powered skin rejuvenation and laser hair removal. Alternatively, visitors can opt for wrinkle-smoothing injectables, such as Botox and Restylane. During their noninvasive treatments, patients can relax by listening to music or gazing out the window at scenic views of Silicon Valley?s laptop gardens.
Tova Yaron brings 40 years of international skincare training to her full-service health and wellness spas. Tova has spent her time perfecting her skills in the beauty industry before opening Tova Day Spa in early 2000. Less than a decade later, she established a second location in The Fairmont Hotel, where her team pampers clients from all walks of life?including locals, tourists, and celebrities such as Jon Lovitz, Carrie Fisher, and Jay Mohr.
From within the tranquil spa, aestheticians keep skin radiant by employing 11 types of facials along with a roster of skin enhancements?from an exfoliating peel to wrinkle-reducing LED light therapy. Antioxidant-rich ingredients such as green tea and Dead Sea mineral mud draw out toxins during body wraps, and a complimentary scalp massage squashes tension and errant thought bubbles. The staff also tends to nails and coifs, and combines many treatments for full-day spa experiences. Between sessions, guests can make use of the spa's luxurious facilities, which include men and women's locker rooms, relaxation lounge, heated whirlpools, steam rooms, and sauna.
The Balanced Body Therapeutic Massage coaxes the stress from the shoulders of San Jose with myriad massage modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, sports, acupressure, myofascial, pre/post-natal, geriatric, cranio-sacral, infant, trigger point, and reflexology. Begin your journey by entering a dark room filled with dim lighting and relaxing music as you drift off into a peaceful oasis of back bliss. Depending on the massage type you choose, one of eight fully trained and certified therapists will personalize the massage based on your body's injury history and tendency for tap-dance-related accidents. The ultimate goal of The Balanced Body is to provide a professional yet comfortable setting to promote healing, well-being, and relaxation, like soaking in a spa on the moon while Yanni plays piano next to you.
