Looking around Pacific Avenue Salon & Spa, a rustic Italian villa might come to mind. That’s because each piece of decor situated within the 10,000-square-foot day spa exudes that vibe, from the intricate ironwork on the stairs to the cobblestones lining its walkways. In a bright, airy salon space, guests can relax on leather salon chairs facing mirrors that reflect their new haircuts and more vibrant hair colors. Other visitors can retire to private massage rooms in the hopes that therapeutic, Swedish, or deep-tissue techniques will work out their muscle aches and kinks. Elsewhere, the spa’s licensed professionals pamper clients with body wraps that utilize ingredients such as greek yogurt, pumpkin, or coffee and jojoba. The expansive retreat also features a pool, gym, and sauna and hot tub that give clients a place to unwind and decide which state of water they like best: liquid or gas.
