Inside Lacquer Beauty Lounge, technician Veronica Romero beautifies clients' digits with specialty gel nail enhancements as well as mani-pedis with traditional polish. Her custom designs add dazzling glitter, jaguar spots, and flowers to the gels, which can enhance any manicure or pedicure on the Lounge's menu. More in-depth treatments hydrate, exfoliate, and massage hands and feet to support radiant skin.
As Veronica works, patrons can enjoy the amenities of Lacquer Beauty Lounge's private pedicure area. DirecTV and free Wi-Fi entertain eyes as feet soak in metal pedicure tubs sanitized after each use. In addition, salon owner Lona Martinez stocks her nail stations with cruelty-free and vegan Nubar products to balance out manicured hands' inexplicable affinity for juggling cheeseburgers.
Reflections Day Spa is a one-stop-shop for beauty, pampering, and wellness. The menu of services includes everything from hairstyling to nail care to eyelash extensions?and that's only the beginning. Here, middles can be whittled down with body wraps that use a botanical formula to tighten and tone lax skin. Or, through sessions booked with one of Reflections' personal trainers, who offer one-on-one workouts or two person partner training for those who arrive with their imaginary friends. Meanwhile, massage therapists soothe sore muscles and ease stress with a variety of techniques including hot stone and deep-tissue massage, and waxing experts swiftly whisk away unwanted whiskers from the entire body, leaving bodies silky and smooth from brows to underarms to bikini lines.
Juliet Bettencourt draws on years of experience in skincare and massage therapy to soothe bodies with treatments that blend the principles of both within a relaxing spa environment. After her own struggles with acne compelled her to help others, Juliet enrolled in beauty school, where she began to augment her uncommon empathy for patients with vast reserves of skincare knowledge. Today, she matches that unique combination of compassion and clinical precision with products from Raya Cosmetics and other trusted brands that cater to normal and sensitive skin types. When she isn?t flushing out pores and polishing cheeks during facials, Juliet waxes away unwanted fuzz.
Veronica Romero snips locks at Curl Up & Dye, a salon where the stylists are as skilled as the name is cheeky. There, she adds shine and subtracts frizz from hair using California Smooth's formaldehyde-free brand of keratin hair smoothing. She also fiddles with hair's tint knobs, shading manes to rich chestnuts and adding highlights to give hair more depth than a debate with Socrates at the bottom of the ocean.
Lisa Ceballos and her fellow aestheticians at Bella Salon & Spa tout decades of experience in beautifying clients from head to toe. For her part, Lisa draws on a number of high-end products, including eyelash extensions that are made in the United States, applied to the individual lashes, and are capable of surviving a relentless barrage of compliments or a beautiful bombardment of butterfly kisses.
