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 unties knots of tension with massages, waxes away unwanted fuzz, and waters tattoos of roses that have begun to shed their petals.
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.
Multiple levels of tanning beds gradually bronze skins inside private rooms at Tanners Cove. Tanning accelerators available at reception can hasten the arrival of sun-kissed hues, and spray-tan booths spritz on golden color without exposure to UV light or glares from jealous wall sconces.
Give Michelle De La Torre 25 minutes, and in exchange she'll give you 90 days' worth of glamorous glances. The deft lash expert outfits peepers with water-resistant lashes––applied individually for a more natural look––and even stocks varying lengths, allowing customers to choose their preferred level of drama. Victorian vanities and stuffed leopard-print chairs pepper the professional home she shares with the other aesthetic experts and time-traveling big-game hunters at Bella Salon & Spa, where guests can further refine their looks with treatments that range from moisturizing body wraps to microdermabrasion.
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.
