The mantra behind this San Diego-based salon—the belief that luxury services (that don’t cost a small fortune) can be provided in an ultra-clean, hip and comfortable environment—is what sets Lulu’s apart from the crowd. Guests can escape in the quaint South Park village with deliciously seasonal services provided in a funky tattoo art-meets-vintage glamour boutique atmosphere. “It’s like being in a jewel box,” touts a regular client. The salon has built its client list based on the fact that the techs know the difference between a manicure and a manicure that’s done well.
