From the outside, Blades Salon and Spa looks like a dream home. Impeccably landscaped shrubbery frames its front doors and tall windows, and a fountain sends ripples through the flower-accented pond in the front yard. The greenery continues in the back of the house, where trees and plants circle another small pond, a popular spot where local pyrotechnicians cool off after starting a shirtsleeve fire.
Inside this idyllic setting, experienced stylists cater to clients' hair needs, whether customers are looking for a fashionable cut and color or hair-replacement services for adults and children. As part of their commitment to helping clients look and feel their best, staffers partner with Locks of Love, using donated hair to create top-quality hair prosthetics for children dealing with long-term hair loss due to medical issues.
Beauty comes in all forms. At Lotus Spa, beauty isn't only reserved for the clients who come in for classic and specialty spa services, including waxing and threading. It is also extended to the exquisite crystal chandeliers, intricately designed copper ceiling tiles and richly colored baroque textiles that decorate the spa.
Soft lighting soothes clients as aestheticians scrub bodies with exfoliating mixtures of sugar and oil or pamper clients with a Lotus Fusion massage—a combination of deep-tissue, hot-stone, and aromatherapy styles. Aestheticians brighten complexions with three kinds of chemical peels designed to melt away layers of dead skin and old Halloween masks absorbed into the skin.
In the late 1920s, the Great Depression was rendering most Americans professionally and financially paralyzed. But in a small California kitchen, Merle Nethercutt Norman was putting a plan in motion to formulate her own skincare products and share them with family and friends. She truly believed in her formulas, knowing that by getting them on as many faces as possible, she would develop a following of customers. She was right—within a few years she and her nephew were opening their first studio in Santa Monica, and they eventually unveiled a series of independently operated stores that enabled women to take ownership during a time of gender-based limitations such as men-only restrooms.
Today, in approximately 2,000 stores across three countries, the three basic principles of Merle's original vision still apply. Each studio is independently owned and fosters an in-depth knowledge of the company's own line of makeup and skincare products. Just as Merle shared her creations with close friends and sallow mannequins more than 80 years ago, today's aestheticians embody the business's ""try before you buy"" philosophy. A menu of complimentary studio services—from foundation checks to express facials—allows patrons to sample the lauded brand before committing to the purchase of products or full spa treatments.
Owner and aesthetician Tina Sinopoli combines 10 years of skincare expertise and four years of health-and-wellness coaching into every personalized spa procedure performed at Body Beautique. Appointments begin with a detailed consultation, during which Tina evaluates the patient’s epidermal condition and needs before administering the most appropriate skin or body treatment using control corrective skin systems. Such services include 30-minute resurfacing peels, wherein alpha hydroxy acid aims to improve fine lines and scarring; and 30-minute enzyme peels, a fruit-based exfoliation treatment that smoothes skin more effectively than rubbing up against a fruit-bowl still life painted on sandpaper. Waxing sessions also soften skin by ridding bodies of unwanted hair.
Along with enriching skin, Tina draws upon her studies at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to offer clients health-coaching services. By investigating each client’s relationship with food and exercise, Tina is able to determine the promptest, healthiest way to achieve and maintain their ideal weight. She also attempts to help them understand and reduce their cravings, and incorporate new, healthier foods into their diets.

Clique Waxing Boutique focuses almost exclusively on body waxing. The boutique's aestheticians perform several hundred Brazilian waxes each week—some completed in as little as 15 minutes—with either traditional strip wax or sensitive hard wax. For especially delicate areas, a dollop of Relax & Wax No Scream Cream dulls pain sensors and subdues hairs before they weave themselves into an organized protest. New clients are encouraged to review Clique's waxing etiquette.
On faces, the boutique's crew uproots fringe via traditional Indian threading techniques or the Anastasia brow-shaping system from Los Angeles, which includes a series of measurements that help technicians taper brows to the most face-flattering shapes, such as circles or lightning bolts.
The studio's Bohemian-style décor—with vintage furnishings, framed art, a chandelier, and ornately framed mirrors—carries over into a retail space, where guests can peruse products including paraben-free makeup and lavender-mint Dead Sea–salt scrubs from gloMinerals.
