Bellezza Day Spa's specialists evict freeloading tension and impurities with signature spa treatments including facials, waxing, massages, and manicures. Knowledgeable hands slow dance across weary backs during muscle-kneading massage sessions to improve circulation and invoke relaxation. Specialized facials infuse natural facemasks with a variety of cleansing and nourishing treatments including steam extractions and organic, paraben-free products. Nail treatments enhance the health and appearance of back scratchers and often conclude with hot-lavender-oil massages. Diligent depilators uproot unwanted skin sprouts with hard and soft waxes, which make it easy to shape forehead-dwelling caterpillars into beautiful arches.
When Alexandria "Lexy" Hernandez isn?t healing minds and bodies with massage and meditation techniques, she's working on human canvases?dusting on eye art, etching out defining features with makeup, and summoning radiance from skin with scrubs and body wraps. Her range of services is wide: she and her staff can twist hair into elegant updos or prepare brides and attendants for memorable wedding days with formal hair and makeup packages. In addition to traditional and airbrush-makeup applications, she offers paramedical cosmetic sessions, which aim to conceal skin imperfections, the aftereffects of plastic surgery, or tattoos proclaiming the love of your ex-favorite mom. She also specializes in deep-tissue massage, which she calibrates to not only relax clients but also to encourage healing.
The makeup artists and professional stylists at Epic Artistry have no lack of canvases for their art. Inside their bright downtown Burlingame lounge, they channel their creativity into making over clients during hair and makeup services, including applications and classes. They also add flattering tints to both men and women's features, accented by the arches of artfully waxed eyebrows.
Before their appointments, guests can sip herbal tea to relax. The lounge's lipstick-red dresser and florid patterned couch cast a crisp Victorian vibe over the hardwood floors. Epic Artistry borders several boutiques, enabling visitors to quickly nab a whole new look even without falling into a vat of yellow dye number 5.
Combining top-shelf, natural skin care products with holistic practices, the staff of Sanguine Skin Care invigorate and detoxify mind and body. During Reiki facials, aestheticians first perform extractions and apply a mask before using a hands-on technique to transfer energy—or 'ki'—via the body's most obvious outlet, the nose. Microdermabrasion and glycolic peels work to stimulate new cell growth and brighten complexions, while the ancient "Raindrop" method of body healing uses essential oils on the spine and feet to detoxify and relax more effectively than a CD of ambient leaky faucet noises.
The nail artists at Pinkies Nail Salons might be partial to a certain color of polish, but they always listen to their clients first. So whether your preferred shade is pink or deep crimson?or whether you want a french manicure, silk wraps, or acrylics, for that matter?they're happy to make your vision a reality. It helps, of course, that they keep a veritable rainbow of OPI and Essie polishes in stock. And yet, as impressive as they are, nail services aren't the only treatments to be had at Pinkies. The salon also offers a range of waxing services, as well as stylish tinting for eyelashes and eye windows.
