At Marina Andre Salon, Marina Andre leads a team of six stylists with experience working at salons such as Vidal Sassoon and José Eber. Amid French-chateau fixtures, stylists arrange elegant evening hairdos, uncoil curly hair, and add waves to hair rendered straight after falling asleep on an ironing board. Meanwhile, aestheticians rejuvenate bodies and minds with spa services such as facials, which employ unusual, skin-friendly ingredients, such as chai soy, volcanic ash, and licorice. Marina Andre Salon also plays host to an arsenal of products by Dermalogica, Redken, and Enjoy so that clients can pick up a stock to beautify with in front of their bathroom vanity or neighbor's window.
Lauded on the pages of Fit magazine, as well as on computer screens on LA.com and TVs on E! News, Vida Emanuel European Day Spa has garnered well-deserved attention for 25 years. The spa’s owner opened her namesake beauty haven to provide locals of Beverly Hills and beyond with expertly executed skin and body services. Amid an elegant space embellished with gold accents, Emanuel’s highly trained crew of Certified Aesthetic Consultants, massage therapists, and laser specialists gets to work perfecting exteriors with more than 15 skin treatments, many of which feature Emanuel’s personal skincare line. On-trend beauty treatments include Yon-Ka facials and threading services, all-natural spray tans, massages, and laser hair-removal treatments. Clients who opt for more advanced therapies can pursue dermal-filler injections to plump fine lines, or try ultrasonic lipolysis, a painless procedure that helps pinch inches by breaking down fatty cells shaped like Twinkies.
At Makeup&Go!, clients sidle up to glass-topped makeup stations, where drawers of cosmetics await unpainted faces. Professional makeup artists pluck from prestigious brands such as Smashbox, Tarte, and Mark, gussying up faces during drop-in makeovers or quick touch-ups. They airbrush the foundation, which underlies colorful petals of eye makeup, lip color, and blush. To make eyes pop, they apply individual lashes or false eyelash strips.
Next door at Bubble Blow Dry, stylists scrub scalps clean of oil and residue before sculpting hair using blow dryers and professional coiffure-shaping tools. Bubble Blow Dry washes clients in nearly all-white surroundings splashed with pops of chartreuse. Massaging chairs cuddle bodies at the shampoo bowls, and blow dryers dangle enticingly from the ceiling, waiting to be plucked by their favorite stylist or an overwatered plant.
The specialists at Trinity Salon & Day Spa divide their attention between the face and body, though they make sure not to skimp on either. Among their wide range of services—which include massages, hairstyling, nailcare, and body waxing—is a collection of facials designed to treat specific conditions such as acne, aging, and dryness. Custom airbrush tans imbue skin with a natural, UV-free glow, and eyelash extensions enhance the length and volume of lashes without mascara or growth hormones.
Inside Trinity Salon & Spa, Tara Gerrits and Maria Becerra of Appearances strive to provide their clients with the best skincare around by drawing from 40 years of combined industry experience. For them, that means using organic products whenever possible and always staying abreast of the latest improvements in the field. Their service menu includes anti-aging facials, gentle microdermabrasions, natural spray tans, and waxing treatments.
Dr. Joseph Yadegar, born in Iran, educated in England, and scrubbed in as a Los Angeles surgeon since 1977, sculpts physiques and enhances beauty at Body Cosmetics of Beverly Hills.

Says Dr. Yadegar of the work done here at his surgicenter, "When you guide and support a patient in their decision to have elective cosmetic surgery, or in some cases life altering reconstructive surgery, it is quite a rewarding and gratifying experience."
