When you’re in the trendy Union Square neighborhood in San Francisco, you’re in the perfect location to enjoy entertainment, shopping and a slice of TLC. Here you’ll find a vast variety of spas and salons, so you can leave looking and feeling like you’ve just stepped off the runway. Step into these five salons and spas and step out with style.
After being in the hustle and bustle of the city, you need to recharge at an urban sanctuary. Bibbo Salon and Spa is a must for head-to-toe beauty, so let the family go sight-seeing while you relax and unwind with a range of hair and body services right at your fingertips. There are various hair treatments to meet your style whims, from color and gloss treatments to those nourishing your scalp that will encourage healthier hair to grow. If you’re preparing for a wedding, you can also make use of their bridal hair styling services so that you can be a radiant bride. While you’re there, make your outing more luxurious by stepping into the spa where you can book various types of massage, such as a hot stone, tissue, or Swedish massage to rejuvenate you from the inside out.
If you’re battling with a skin issue, you might need the professional services of a medical spa. Epi Centre is a leading medical spa offering a range of dazzling treatments to enable you to show the world your prettiest skin. Best of all, you get a free consultation to help you discover the best treatment your skin requires. There are treatments for both face and body, such as acne treatments, microdermabrasion, skin brightening, laser hair removal and blue light therapy for sun damaged skin, to mention a few. You can also order high-quality skincare products directly from their website to maintain your fresh and beautiful looks long after you leave.
No matter how gorgeous you look, your nails speak volumes about you. When you’re in Union Square, you have no excuse to walk around with ugly nails because there are many nail salons around. A place you simply have to try is Zen Beauty Spa, because pampering comes standard here. It’s a relaxing place where you will be treated to tea while sitting in a comfortable chair to get your mani or pedi, so it’s perfect for slipping into after a stressful work day (they’re open ’til 7:30pm). Loads of nail polish colors are available, even for gel manicures which will last for two weeks. The focus is on pampering, with luxurious treatments such as exfoliation scrubs and lemongrass and eucalyptus foot soaks.
When it comes to makeup, sometimes there’s nothing better than getting it done by professionals who will show you how to flaunt your best-looking self. Situated on Maiden Lane, the charming yet luxury shopping location, Joseph Cozza Salon offers cosmetic applications, facials, brow design and skin treatments to replenish your looks. The makeup artists will teach you invaluable tricks on how to apply the latest makeup trends so that you look amazing. You can even book more intensive makeup lessons so that you learn the craft. This is a fabulous gift to give yourself and it will pay off every time you wear makeup in future.
Sometimes a girl needs a bit of hair TLC on the go and that’s when it’s vital to pop into the Dry Bar for a quick blowout so that you can go to wherever you were headed with more stunning hair. At Dry Bar, it’s all about blowouts, not coloring or cuts, so if your hair needs a boost of fabulousness this is the place to go. You can also get your hands on luxurious products and hair tools to recreate trendy tresses at home.
Bliss out on beauty! After visiting these shops, you’ll leave Union Square feeling like a sparkling, more stylish version of yourself.
