Born and raised in California, poppy beauty bar's owners share a special affection for the Golden State. It seemed only natural, then, to name their beauty bar after the state’s official flower, the poppy. However, when choosing a color scheme for the spa, they opted for a delicate green rather than the bright yellow of the California poppy. The end result is a calming sanctuary whose beauty rivals that of any flower.
Today, the staff at poppy beauty bar focuses on skin care, nail services, and waxing. Vintage touches abound throughout the spa, though they sometimes serve a hidden purpose—the chic metal water buckets used for pedicures are, in fact, easier to clean and more sanitary than traditional foot baths. Clients can work with one of poppy's party planners to throw an in-salon party to celebrate a wedding shower, birthday, or the removal of a hangnail.
The talented stylists at Total Hair Fitness specialize in a variety of haircut, color, and styling techniques. They imbue strands with highlights, color gloss, or a high dimension hue, and mold manes via cutting options such as a trim, a razored do', layers, blunt lines, and shaping. Post cut and color, stylists can straighten strands with a flat iron and cover with lacquer to make sure it holds its shape.
The aestheticians at Dabbo Skin Care Studio know skincare is not about treating the symptoms, but about solving the core problem. That’s why they don’t merely moisturize dry skin; they work to correct imbalances and buff away inhibiting outer layers using the latest cosmeceutical training. They also pair natural skin remedies with the latest technology, using ultrasound technology and abrading treatments to deeply cleanse pores before combating skin’s toxins with fruit enzymes and pure oxygen. Believing that no one treatment is good for everyone, the aestheticians customize their skincare treatments to individual cases of acne, rosacea, or wrinkles caught from hugging a shar pei. The salon’s more in-depth treatments come in a variety of strengths, with 10 styles of chemical peels allowing clients to decide the intensity of the results desired.
