The Painted Lady Tanning and Spa's staff describes the decor as "dripping in champagne and diamonds." That's a pleasant exaggeration; the cozy interior does indeed boast swooping chandeliers and the staff themselves pour complementary beverages in glasses as opposed to all over the furniture. But the staff's focus is always on providing the best services, such as applying spray tans, caring for skin, and soothing tension with massages. Massages are offered by massage therapist Rodney Davis, who has over 20 years of experience. With the exception of massages, which are offered in-spa only, they also offer all their services on-the-go, traveling to meet clients in Napa, Sonoma, Saint Helena, Yountville, and Calistoga.
In 2011, Jennifer Thomas and Pam Dawson decided to combine their styling skills and opened their boutique-inspired salon: Thomas Dawson & Co. The salon's team specializes in precision haircuts, but the stylists also offer color and texturizing treatments using professional-grade haircare products, including Goldwell, Redken, and Kemon. Additionally, an onsite nail technician pampers fingers and toes with mani-pedis that can incorporate indulgent touches such as soothing aromatherapy oils.
Located inside the Painted Lady Tanning and Spa, but its name is Serenity Bungalow Massage and this welcoming relaxation destination is meant for women and men alike. Serenity Bungalow Massage is staffed by therapists who fuse modalities such as Swedish massage and acupressure. For even more luxurious experiences, clients can upgrade their kneads with hot stones, sugar scrubs, shea butter, and essential oils.
Prepping for a big event usually requires multiple salon stops: one for the updo, another for the nails, and the last for a spray tan. Not so at Solar Flair, where stylists perform all these services and more. They bring about bronzy glows with a choice between 11 tanning beds or a UV-free Mystic spray-tan booth. The full-service salon also polishes exteriors with glycolic peels and waxing treatments. This one-stop beautification frees up time before big events for relaxing at home or making googly eyes at the mirror’s handsome new reflection.
The tanning technicians at Mira of Beauty take the guesswork out of getting a glow by administering professional airbrush tans at their studio. They mist bodies with paraben-free South Seas tanning products that are infused with DHA, an FDA-approved ingredient. These top-of-the-line bronzers, which have been featured in Allure magazine and used on the sets of many television shows, are emitted from high-volume, low-pressure guns at a slow rate to ensure glows go on even, unlike applying them with a salad shooter.
The pro pamperers at Endless Summer Salon LLC brighten faces with a seamless fusion of Old World beauty traditions and modern techniques during a one-hour European facial. Once knowledgeable beauty gurus choose suitable supplements from a trove of top-shelf skin elixirs, pores surrender their hoarded impurities to a firm but gentle exfoliating scrub. A coddling hydrating or refining mask blankets squeaky-clean cells with protective barriers against future dehydration, textural unevenness, and complexion-defiling grease from insurgent french fries before gentle massage strokes expel delinquent tension from the face, the scalp, and the shoulders.
