Unwind in Coastal LA



425 Broadway, Santa Monica | (310) 458-3800

Entering this skin haven’s heaven-scented lobby instantly slows your heart rate down a beat. We think the world of estheticians Brandi and Kristina. Added bonus: the skincare line is all natural and the facials straightforward and reasonably priced (move along, caviar-diamond-plasma peels).

Angelenos are lucky to lay claim to Alli Webb’s genius Drybar, whose run-in/blow-out services have saved us from a bad hair day more than once. With champagne and rom coms flowing, it’s an instant shot of luxe that’s at once accessible and decadent.
