Sun Studio Tanning?s educated staffers outfit pallid pelts with darker coats using high-quality UV beds and 60-second UV-free spray tans. Their horizontal and upright beds range from low pressure to high pressure, laying down a base color before working skins up to deep, rich golden glows. Mid-pressure beds feature high-pressure face and shoulder lamps to simulate natural tans like those achieved by being outdoors or tackling a radioactive rugby player. High-pressure beds suspend tanners amid 360-degree lamps atop a contoured acrylic support, giving all-over even, consistent color. Mystic tan booths, meanwhile, are UV-free and darken skin by up to two shades in 60 seconds.
For centuries, women in Eastern countries have relied on threading techniques to remove errant hair. Today, the technicians at Kira Threading have it down to a veritable science—with help from its incredibly simple nature. During sessions, a threading specialist rolls and twists a thin cotton thread across the skin, removing multiple hairs at the follicle level and doing so in a straight line. That precision makes the technique ideal for shaping eyebrows. Unlike waxing, which can leave the skin red, irritated, and prone to attracting candlewicks, threading removes only the hair and leaves the skin fuzz-free for up to a month around the arms, brows, and chin.

The hair stylists, aestheticians, and permanent-makeup artists at Le Cheveu Salon & Spa combine forces to fight the common enemies of lackluster style and epidermal imperfection, drawing from an arsenal of products that hail from the ?minence Organic Skin Care line and the Rep?chage seaweed-based line. In addition to performing facials and body scrubs, they strive to help clients burn calories and detoxify with infrared body wraps that induce sweat and inexplicable urges to curse all who enter the treatment room. Stylists, meanwhile, tend to above-the-shoulder needs with haircuts, color, and smoothing treatments.
It's hard to know what's more beautiful––the salon's backyard, with its views of lush grasslands and rolling California mountains, or the salon's elegant interior. Here, natural lights pours in through large front windows, illuminating white exposed brick and watercolor paintings of fashion models mid-pose. Several long mirrors further add dimension to the space where skilled stylists craft sleek layers and make strands shine with specialty color treatments.
