LA Bronze Ultra Luxe Tanning Studios service tanners on the go and provides a respite for those looking to relax. Inside stand-up booths, clients remain on their feet while up to 60 bulbs create a 360-degree tan. Clients may also choose to stand up for a twelve-minute session inside a warm capsule or choose a bronze hue to have misted on their skin and settling into a sun-kissed glow in three hours. Those looking to enhance their tans can purchase power lotions, bronzers, accelerators, and cooling lotions from the salon’s collection of tanning products.
Ancient people in ancient times got perfect ancient tans while standing up because the lying-on-the-ground-for-bronzing purposes had not yet been attempted. Hollywood Tans' friendly staff takes a page out of the history books by implementing highly hygienic vertical tanning to deliver even, 360-degree coloration without the stress of bulb marks and pressure points one gets from horizontal tanning beds. With your month of unlimited tanning, you can usurp a summary glow while standing up in one of Hollywood's state-of-the-art HT60 booths.
Master-level certified in Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, massage therapist Daniel Caruso customizes both Swedish and ashiatsu massages to suit individual clients' needs. Each session begins with a deep breath atop a lambskin-covered, heated table, cleansing the mind of stress and catchy TV theme songs as Caruso assesses for any particularly tense or troublesome muscle areas. During Swedish massages, hot stones, music, and aromatherapy help patrons relax as he blends trigger-point therapy with light- to medium-pressured strokes to reduce stress and promote circulation.
At La Belle Fit, fitness classes, spa services, personal training, and nutritional counseling team up to lead patrons toward total-body wellness inside and out. Visitors can choose from more than 50 fitness classes at the gym's four locations each week, tackling sessions dedicated to dance, spin, barre, and active conditioning. Students bestride Star Trac Spinner stationary bikes in spin classes and line up at the ballet barre in Studio Barre, which combines elements of Pilates, yoga, and orthopedic stretching to form a low-impact, high-intensity program. To singe calories and tone physiques sans dance moves, trainers lead sessions of step, kickboxing, and TRX suspension.
La Belle Fit complements their group fitness programs with one-on-one personal-training sessions and body-rejuvenating massage services helmed by a certified massage therapist. An on-site nutritionist helps patrons maximize the results of their workouts by recommending healthy grocery shopping lists free of bacon-stuffed twinkies deep fried in bacon-stuffed twinkie fat.
Chic, light-filled confines replete with tall mirrors and an elegant white-and-brown color scheme welcome clients into Bernard’s Salon and Spa. The modern, opulent look of the space hints at a rich line of products used in-house, including Dermalogica, Unite, Becca, and Jan Marini. Ultramodern hairstyling and European hair-coloring services make use of these hair-buttressing serums to enliven tresses with fresh looks, and one-hour blow-outs leave strands more polished than the aftermath of two olive-oil trucks colliding on freshly waxed bowling-alley lanes. To attend to nonhairdocentric concerns, Bernard’s staff shows clients to private treatment rooms for massage, waxing, and facial services. The savvy team helps both spa and salon clients extend the lives of their services by recommending the proper products to take home or by encasing them in bubble-wrap cocoon.
The Makeup Bar Salon may be named for its chair-lined countertops that brim with signature cosmetics, but its staff of stylists and aestheticians brings much more than just makeup artistry to the table. Supervised by Lisa Severino, a makeup artist with more than 20 years of experience, the salon’s many claims to fame include a seaweed facial that was a 2011 Pick by InStyle magazine and a blow-dry bar with a choice of three styling options: tousled, straight, or Louis XIV. Meanwhile, eyebrow specialists flaunt years of over-eye artistry in brow-shaping sessions that both correct past tweezing blunders and ensure flattering contours when brows grow out. Clients can put a bow on their spa and salon services with exclusive cosmetics, whether the salon’s own or the feng-shui-inspired Color Elements line designed by Severino herself.
