As seen in press outlets including the San Mateo County Times, Peninsula Beauty stocks its stores with professional beauty supplies and salon products culled from a sprawling 10,000-square-foot warehouse. An eclectic array of brands, from American Crew to OPI, helps men and women transform hair and nails into polished works of aesthetic art. Cosmetics and lotions stand ready to adorn epidermises, and an arsenal of flat- and curling irons allows for more believable quick-changes during impromptu performances of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
The staff at Top Hair-Nails has pampered its clientele for more than a decade. The salon's hair services include cuts, extensions, and color treatments, and its nail services include trimming and polishing—like a trophy maker whose clients shrink over time. The salon's CND Shellac polish remains chip-free for up to two weeks, and the staff may even add a luxurious flourish such as a hot-towel treatment. Dedicated to providing clean services, the staff uses hospital-grade sterilization and disinfectant.
While most dreams last until an alarm buzzes or someone pulls your blankets off, Mariola Javorski’s dream of running her own spa has lasted 22 years. As owner of Amazing Face Spa European Skin Care Studio, she leads a team of beauty professionals who use natural products from Europe to improve the skin’s appearance and health with facials, microdermabrasion, and body wraps for men and women. Nail services keep keratin well manicured and massages knead out tension, chronic aches, and stubborn knots that refuse to untie even for master magicians.
The Land Down Under is a continent set beneath a scorching sun—Australian Tan knows, just like Australians, how to harness the light to achieve glowing, bronzy skin. The salon’s faux sun comes from six different tanning booths. The most basic bed imparts a base tan in 20 minutes, while the Instant 770 imparts a rich, long-lasting hue in as few as 10. Meanwhile, the sunless spray-tanning booth houses an automatic system that sprays on UV-free color. Regardless of the chosen bed, the staff can complement sessions with bronzing lotions that enhance acquired tans or help an old trophy get through a midlife crisis with a refreshed façade. Each member of the staff goes through 35 hours of training prior to working in the salon, so they can easily tailor tanning plans to each customer.
With a focus on customer satisfaction and green ingredients, Simply Slim's wrap masters swathe clients in solutions designed to burn fatty tissues and sculpt figures. Their repertoire of eight different wraps swaddles guests in solution-soaked bandages, which can be targeted to stubborn, back-talking areas.
Newly slimmed silhouettes can also benefit from the center's full range of spa services. A custom spray-tanning formula, rejuvenating facials, and wax made with natural herbs all do their part to ensure complexions complement toned curves and anatomical T-shirts.
Despite the specificity of the spa's name, Facial Town's inhabitants specialize in a variety of cosmetic services. In addition to custom facials incorporating masks made from pearls, herbs, and fruit, they also help clients relax with hand and neck massages and use waxing and threading techniques to remove unwanted hair from sensitive areas including between the eyebrows or between diary pages.
