While you wouldn't normally liken a nail salon to a really great-looking home, that's the prevailing vibe at this perennially-bustling Beverly Hills nail shop. They employ the city's best nail artists when they're not on shoots or catering to clients at home, which means it's kind of the place to go if you want something specific and intricate. While the Beverly Hills location is their original flagship, there are now locations in Santa Monica and Pasadena as well. Photos: Bonnie Tsang.

Also known as the sweat lodge, this spot, which boasts a pretty major Hollywood following, is exactly that. Equipped with small, cozy rooms where you get into an infrared bed, the idea is that you sweat it out for 60 minutes at a time, while you watch TV, read, or listen to music. People tend to sign up for memberships and come several times a month (or week) and complement the sessions with lymphatic drainage, which is meant to boost the detox process. There's also a location in Santa Monica, and one in Hancock Park.
