Aesthetician Trina Renea oversees the Facial Bungalow's team of medical aestheticians and designs customized treatments worthy of praise from the outspoken Tabatha Coffey of Tabatha's Salon Takeover. Bristles tremble and flee during a Brazilian bikini wax, a relatively pain-free process designed to swiftly lift hair from intimate areas. Nimble hands complete the process in a quick 20 minutes, allowing ladies to swing through the salon before any upcoming date, swim meet, or parka fashion show.
As its name might suggest, The Blink Bar caters exclusively to dramatic eyes and the fluttering lashes that make them stand out. There, technicians apply luxury lash extensions one by one to lengthen and thicken natural lashes. Extensions range from le fling—a half set—to extra-thick VIP-list lashes made out of Siberian silk and mink. In addition to applying lashes in their well-appointed studio, technicians go mobile, carrying with them more than 100 lash varieties and a non-irritating adhesive that ensures steady coverage for four to six weeks. The Blink Bar also hosts private parties, inviting groups to gather, enjoy drinks, and revitalize winks with eyelash makeovers.
Offering expert handiwork that outfits nails with head-turning dazzle, Extremedys Hand & Foot Spa has been featured in magazines such as Vogue, Gloss, and Confidential. For 45 minutes to an hour, a savvy nail stylist grooms cuticles to prepare toes for a nontoxic, odorless application of Minx nails. Available in a plethora of colors, designs, and astrological signs, the solid nail coating is sealed with heat and necessitates no drying time. Newfound nail sheen can last up to four weeks, or long enough to showcase them during sidewalk struts and games of double Dutch played on a bed of hot coals.
From a luxurious, sunlight-filled refuge nestled in the iconic Sunset Tower Hotel, the illustrious team at Argyle Salon & Spa treats every guest to the same pampering that their celebrity clientele enjoys, earning the salon mention in magazines such as Vogue, Hollywood Reporter, and Los Angeles magazine. Clients consult with stylists to determine their optimum Davines haircare hues, weighing their style desires against their personal palettes and pets' forms of color blindness so that their new looks will be accepted at home. After a shower of color to revamp locks, stylists highlight select strands to add depth and visual interest to tresses. René Furterer and Oribe products shape manes during the professional blow-dry, yielding locks worthy of traveling the red carpet or being dyed and woven into a red carpet.
The trained technicians at Polish Couture encourage guests to leave their cares at the door by welcoming them with a glass of wine or coffee and an array of snacks. High-quality nail polishes by OPI and CND Shellac await to revive tired toes, while hard-working paws can be further pampered with add-ons such as paraffin wax treatments. Staffers also draw upon Joico, Wella, and Dermalogica products to nourish hair and skin, creating luxurious strands and smooth, even complexions that invite more admiring glances than an attention-starved mirror.
For Naturally Hands and Spa, beauty doesn’t mean sacrificing the health and appearance of natural features. That’s why the spa invented its own antibacterial eyelash-extension system and performs antibacterial, organic Calgel manicures, earning a Best of Beauty award from Allure magazine. The soak-off Calgel system doesn’t interfere with nail-bed metabolism, so it can actually help strengthen nails while adding a splash of color to high-fives and pledges of allegiance. Calgel's ability to bond on natural nails without using harsh chemicals or primers has helped popularize the service in Europe, and Naturally Hands and Spa is an authorized importer of the products.
