From massage and facial spots to waxing and mani/pedi combos, get insider tips on some of L.A.'s top spas and salons.
Updated: December 20, 2002
Supplies are limited. Bring your own deodorant, hairbrush, shower soap and flip-flops--terrycloth slippers are provided, but they won't do any good in the shower.
On Saturdays, get your car hand-washed for $11 while you get massaged.
Book your 55-minute Therapeutic Touch massage or European facial between 10am and 1pm, Monday through Wednesday and receive $10 off the regular price. Ask for the Soap Opera Special.
The Day of Beauty Special is the perfect gift for a birthday girl or bride-to-be. Besides lunch, services include a facial, massage, body wrap, manicure, pedicure and makeup application all for $250.
Those who abhor waxing should try threading--a natural (and supposedly painless) hair-removal process.
Ripsy's Nail Salon, located inside Verabella, is a one-woman operation offering unique nail services so popular she may be booked as far ahead as two months. Separate payment is required, cash or check only.
Bathing suits or shorts are required on co-ed days: Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. The rest of the week, the all-male clientele opts for the spa's simple togas, or goes au natural.
Don't leave empty-handed: Get a $10 gift certificate good for your next visit; facials include a sample pack of Bio Elements products to try at home.
