Luna D’Oro Beauty House

With home-style décor and a wall-to-wall collection of modern art, Luna D’Oro — a Beverly Hills, Calif.-based beauty house that focuses on natural and restorative nail services — is anything but the typical salon space.

The salon features a faceto-face furniture arrangement typically seen in living rooms.

  • Adorned with colorful throw pillows, visual art purchased at local galleries, antique carpets, and a rare book collection, Luna D’Oro looks like your friend’s boho-chic living room. The personal and eclectic décor is forever fluctuating — almost everything visible is also for sale. A pedicure becomes a chance to go shopping from the comfort of a plush armchair. (Or better yet, take the chair home with you!)

  • Luna D’Oro is one of the first salons in the U.S. to offer Australian-made Christina Fitzgerald nail and skincare products. The staff goes through a training program conducted by the brand as well.

  • To the ladies of Luna D’Oro, maintaining healthy natural nails is important. Most services offered are waterless, and from reflexology to Reiki, each nail tech has a therapeutic specialty. They all complete additional training with a local podiatrist too. The salon is known for its 90-minute Japanese manicure, which features a collection of serums to aid different types of nail damage and doesn’t use colored polish or metal implements.

  • Luxury is critical, explained salon manager Yulia Dremina. “One of our main goals is to provide a luxurious experience and to make people feel beautiful, treated, and healthy,” she said. During treatments, clients get Russian candies and iPads to play with. A complimentary coffee station and full wet bar are also available — champagne is a standard request. When I asked if the salon had any male clients, Dremina responded, “Of course; we serve vodka and whiskey too, you know.”
