Since opening Casa De Bellini Salon & Spa, Juanita Valencia has established a warm atmosphere that welcomes clients seeking style transformations. Her efforts have paid off, earning her repeat business and turning many of those clients into friends. Inside the 3,000-square-foot salon, she leads a team of stylists that specializes in haircare for both men and women. Team members prep hair for a trim with a shampoo and hot towels, accent natural hues with single-process color and highlights, and condition with natural keratin. They also smooth faces and shoulders with microdermabrasion treatments, add dazzling color to nails during mani-pedis, and knead away buried stress with full-body massage sessions. Their signature hot rock mani-pedi combines elements of all three services, reenergizing skin with a sugar scrub and seaweed mask, trimming and shaping nails, and simmering away tension with a hot-stone massage for arms and lower legs.
Aestheticians combine skincare savvy with a tender touch to perform an abundance of pampering treatments in Renew Massage & Skin Care's charming spa atmosphere. Staffers massage the scalp, neck, and shoulders and offer warm aromatherapy towels during most facials. Four types of clinical peels can help to remove dead skin and the ghost of sunburns past. The team further accentuates countenances' beauty with antioxidant-rich makeup by glo minerals. To reduce stress or chronic pain, massage pros employ modalities such as a lomi-lomi treatment that fizzles tension with long, forearm-based strokes. The spa includes shower and locker-room facilities for guests to change into more comfortable outfits and a stately fireplace in its waiting area for warming hands or burning out-of-date day planners.
At Starlight Cinemas, cinephiles can get up close and personal with their favorite celebrities without worrying about security guards or the electric force field that keeps Ralph Macchio from aging. Two movie tickets grant you and a companion access to any 2-D or 3-D movie (subject to availability), projected in pristine HD digital in every auditorium. A large tub of popcorn fuels buttery snacking during trailers, and a free refill ensures patrons have snacks to eat during the feature or to toss over their shoulder during startling horror scenes. Though not valid with this Groupon, each theater is equipped with full concessions should you feel the urge for sodas, candy, or other popular cine-fare. Check Starlight Cinemas’ individual websites for current listings and showtimes.
At Hydrolife Wellness Center, licensed therapists purge the body of toxins and digestive debris in 30-minute colon-hydrotherapy sessions. During each session, a sterile, brand-new speculum is opened in front of the client with a magic wand and burst of confetti. Temperature-controlled, purified water gently flushes the lower intestine, removing impacted waste while clients lay fully covered in the warm, comfortable treatment room. The treatment can alleviate gas, constipation, and yeast infections, improve immune systems, and even help to shed poundage without pull-ups or wrestling a feral treadmill.
True to its name, Hollywood Beauty Center takes pride in making clients feel and look beautiful at its Santa Monica location. With this mission in mind, salon stylists regularly perform a signature treatment—the smoothing Brazilian blowout. Coating strands with a strengthening protein, they diffuse frizz and leave clients' hair sleeker and more manageable until they start flying kites in the middle of lightning storms again. Stylists also have an adept hand with haircuts, coloring, facials, waxing, and nailcare.
Esencia Skin Body Massage treats clients to a far-reaching array of skincare, massage, and salon services.
