It used to be that all you needed to look great was a few hours of beauty sleep.
These days, getting pretty has become a massive schlep, involving a long list of appointments in every corner of the city.
Consolidation awaits at Sonya Dakar’s new luxe, five-story compound. Designed to meet every need (hair care, clinical pedicure, cosmetic dentistry, yoga, day care, pet grooming) all under one roof, the sanctuary offers loads of results-driven treatments and pampering services. (Can’t stand the thought of more driving? They offer over-the-top packages like the Heliport Diva, complete with transportation to the salon via chopper.)
But even if you’re only up for a facial or endermologie, they’ll lend you a laptop, iPod, or PlayStation 2. They’ll also arrange for a personal butler to return calls, pick up dry cleaning, and anything else you can think of.
Not that you should try to come up with anything more to do.
After all, you’re trying to shorten your beauty to-do list, not add to it.
Sonya Dakar Skin Clinic, 9975 Santa Monica Boulevard, at Little Santa Monica Boulevard and Moreno Drive, Beverly Hills (310-553-7344 or sonyadakar.com).
