Too often when you go to the big chain spas you’re disappointed. The staff are often undertrained and the treatments are always overpriced. On the other end of the spectrum there are the uber cheap massage places, which are a lesson in “you get what you pay for.” Wondering where to find the best treatments and dollar value? Try these smaller, locally owned salons and spas. Here’s a sampling of great shops around town.

    I LOVE Saving Faces! I have been going to Shawna for my skin care needs for nearly 20 years, she is fantastic! Very Professional and Clean. My skin looks amazing every time I leave there, never any redness or irritation. My brows are flawless. I can’t say enough great things about this place, just go and you will love it too!

    Le Petite Retreat in Los Angeles is absolutely amazing. They have the BEST Valentine’s Day deals, and you get champagne, truffles, and fruit while you enjoy your spa services. Couple’s packages are discounted for Valentine’s Day as well. I recommend going to Le Petite Retreat in Los Angeles for your Valentine’s Day!
