In addition to those ubiquitous "For Your Consideration" billboards and meltdown-inducing traffic, here's another only-in-LA experience. For those wondering what that A-lister life is all about, you can (like many things in our town) shell out big bucks to get pampered like one at the Ritz-Carlton, which just rolled out out three new spa treatments in time for awards season.
For beauty buffs looking to treat just their digits, the Hollywood Glamour Manicure & Pedicure ($150) will leave your hands hydrated and soft thanks to an exfoliating scrub, paraffin treatment, and cuticle conditioning. You can choose from a lineup of Tinseltown-inspired hues (from a classic red and black to metallics and blush tones), then upgrade with a dusting of 24k gold power for an additional $25.
If money is no object, the five-hour Red Carpet-Ready Experience kicks off with a shimmering body treatment that will turn back time on your visage with the help of champagne seeds and oils, followed by a a restorative facial that includes a brush cleanse, radiance mask, an "age-defying crystal massage", and a lifting mask. That's not all: you'll get the Hollywood Glamour Mani & Pedi, followed by a full makeover and blowout, all for a cool $980.
Those who prefer to indulge with their entire crew can get pampered starting at $165 per person with the Elegant Entourage Package, which (of course) includes a bottle of Prosecco and complimentary valet. Each person will enjoy their choice of a 50-minute spa treatment that includes essential oils for de-stressing; you can also add on services like mani and pedis, a Glam Squad makeover and blowout treatment, and even chocolate-dipped strawberries, if that's your thing.
