Chances are, your typical hairstyle solution in the sweltering summer sun is a ponytail. Yawn. This summer’s dresses and ladylike looks beg for a more polished ’do. Go for these hot styles to combat humdrum hair.

1 BEAUTY AND THE BOB

1

Reese Whiterspoon

If the heat is getting to you, go for a short bob, à la Reese Whiterspoon. This darling look is perfect for delicate, oval face shapes. A bob is also the perfect haircut for a petite person. Infinitely adorable, bobs are easy to care for and a great option if you’ve been less than kind to your hair over the winter months. Think of it as an opportunity to start fresh with strong, healthy hair. For extra shine, try rinsing your hair with a bottle of beer followed by a baby shampoo.

2 HEAVENLY BANGS It’s been a while since a truly new cut has swept the stylish circles, and the heavy bang is fast becoming the preferred option for those who aren’t quite ready for a bob but still want a change from the long, sleek looks we’ve seen in recent years. This cut works best on round and square face shapes, as it helps balance out a full cheek or strong jawline. Round faces should add a few long layers on the side to slim the face.

3

Charleze Theron

Rachel Bilson

4 TIDAL WAVES

For a completely glam look that will last into the next afternoon, invest in a ceramic curling iron and go for bouncy, beautiful waves. Separate hair into eight to 10 sections and curl away from your face, holding the iron on each section for 15 Taylor seconds. Spritz with hair spray and allow your hair to cool for at least 15 Swift minutes. Before combing out your waves, use the cold air feature on 3 UNIQUE UPDOS your blow dryer for a quick blast to help your curls set completely and The term updo usually conjures visions of prom dresses, bobby pins and hours at a hair salon,keep but their shape. this summer’s updos are as easy and breezy as the classic pony. The easiest ones are low, loose and pulled to the left. A perfect pairing with a delicate summer dress, this uniquely offset bun will add polish to your look. Simply wrap a ponytail holder around a low bun, tuck in any flyaway strands and spritz with hair spray.

PartyGirl! written by Erin Magner


COCKTAIL PARTY THE LOOK Chances are, you’ll find yourself in more than a few cocktail lounges this summer. Without tan lines, sand or sweat to worry about, this is the time to break out your sexiest attire. this season, that sexiness comes in the form of one-shoulder styles, lingerie detailing and high hemlines. if you prefer something a little looser, draped grecian styles are equally alluring. KEY ACCESSORY A killer dress demands killer heels to complete the seductive vibe. we recommend a peep-toe or ankle-strap style. WHERE YOU’LL BE SEEN The latest see-and-be-seen rooftop nightspot is AbH (“Above beverly Hills”), in LA’s thompson Hotel. it’s filled with lush cabanas, fireplaces and the obligatory swimming pool.

DOLCE AND GABBANA

AS FAR AS WE’RE CONCERNED, the man who coined the phrase “Lazy hazy crazy days of summer” was only one-third right: around here, the stretch between memorial day and Labor day is one nonstop party. and with every invitation comes the same question: what will i wear? we’ve put together a few effortless head-to-toe outfits for the main events of your own crazy season so you can keep your mind on more important things—like how to get out of work the morning after.


BEACH BARBEQUE THE LOOK Whatever extravagant galas we may attend, our favorite parties will always involve marsh-mallows, beer and a big bonfire. Laid-back festivities demand an equally relaxed outfit, and teh ideal is one of this summer’s flowy bohemian-inspired maxidresses. The only extra you need is a pair of bewjeweled flip-flops that can be thrown aside when you hit the sand. KEY ACCESSORY With a statement dress like this, less is definetly more. But if you just can’t unadorned, an armful of gold and wood bangles is a good option. WHERE YOU’LL BE SEEN

WEDDING THE LOOK Possibly the trickiest to put together: You mustn’t upstage the bride, you don’t want to wear the same color as the bridesmaids, and it’s a bad idea to shock the groom’s grandmother with your body-con black dress. we recommend keeping things conservative with this season’s vintage-inspired floral dresses in a classic hourglass silhouette —nipped waist and full A-line skirt—and a low heel for dancing. KEY ACCESSORY Summer’s slouchy clutch handbags are perfect for this look. Not only do they fit your camera and makeup case with room to spare, but they also keep the floral dress from looking too froufrou. WHERE YOU’LL BE SEEN The latest see-and-be-seen rooftop nightspot is ABH (“Above Beverly Hills”), in LA’s thompson Hotel. it’s filled with lush cabanas, fireplaces and the obligatory swimming pool.

OSCAR DE LA RENTA

BCBG

For the most pictur-esque picnic, head to Laguna’s Aliso beach. its stunning cliffs and ridges provide the perfect backdrop for a late-summer sunset.


DINNER PARTY THE LOOK Chances are, you’ll find yourself in more than a few cocktail lounges this summer. Without tan lines, sand or sweat to worry about, this is the time to break out your sexiest attire. this season, that sexiness comes in the form of one-shoulder styles, lingerie detailing and high hemlines. if you prefer something a little looser, draped grecian styles are equally alluring. A killer dress demands killer heels to complete the seductive vibe. we recommend a peep-toe or ankle-strap style. WHERE YOU’LL BE SEEN The latest see-and-be-seen rooftop nightspot is ABH (“Above Beverly Hills”), in LA’s thompson Hotel. it’s filled with lush cabanas, fireplaces and the obligatory swimming pool.

BLACK-TIE FUNDRAISER THE LOOK Whether your passion is politics, the environment or the arts, you’re sure to be attending at least one charity event this summer. Black tie no longer has to mean florr-length and bling, and this season’s freshest formal looks are shorter and simpler than those of years past. Keep your silhouettes classic, your fabrics rich and your focus on interesting embellishments like origami pleating, oversize rosettes, feathers and ruffles. KEY ACCESSORY Stand out from a sea of little black dresses with a jeweled headpiece, a great alternative to a more formal hat. WHERE YOU’LL BE SEEN All about consumerism with a conscience, south coast Plaza holds regular fundraising events at its designer boutiques. A Versace gown with a charity donation thrown in? We’ll take two.

Agua Clara Aguaclara was first conceived twenty five years ago, back in 1989 in Lima Peru, by the siblings Jorge and Liliana Villalobos.

In a short time, Aguaclara became very popular in their market and has grown to the leading brand it is today. Liliana, as Creative Director, has used her talent to shape the essence of the brand. At its core is its ethnic tendency, rooted in Amazon and Andean influences. She is a restless traveler, always looking for new trends and state-of-the-art technology.

g n a h TEN

this summer


Ocean Magazine is Hangin’ Ten

this Summer! For beach babes and surfer dudes alike, Hang Ten is an authentic, California lifestyle brand that radiates a fun and free-spirited coastal attitude. Founded in 1960, by surf legend Duke Boyd, Hang Ten set the standard for Southern California surf style when he first sewed a pair of little feet on a pair of nylon trunks tough enough to withstand even the roughest Pacific waves. Hang Ten went on to become a pioneering force in action sports, defining the style of a generation.

By embodying “a coastal state of mind”, Hang Ten has been winning over the hearts and minds of consumers for more than 50 years. Today, the brand is spreading its strong heritage and colorful history by licensing its iconic logo and designs for premium apparel, bicycles, paddle boards, skateboards, surfboards, sun care, children’s fashion and much more. “ We are very passionate about the brand and it origins and made a commitment to build authentic, fun product that delivers on the Hang Ten brand heritage.” says Ben Young, VP of Marketing and Creative. “We began with a full skateboard line that was shaped by Dale Smith, one of the original skateboard shapers from the sixties.“ Then in the Hang Ten spirit of fun we started building high quality soft top surfboards and SUP’s (stand up paddleboards) then added and 2 inflatable SUPs to the line. “The surfboards are a big hit with surf schools because their construction makes them a bit easier to ride than

most other soft tops. Not to mention we are the only soft top brand with a 60 year lineage” says Young. Hang Ten offers a full range of high-end beach chairs as well. The line ranges from a very unique and convenient folding beach mat priced at $29.99 up to their $99.99 Moana Loa jumbo chair rated for up to 650 pounds! Hang Ten has recently unveiled a very strong line of beach cruisers with a patented wood inlay in the frame. “As with the rest of our hard goods line, we created bikes that were uniquely Hang Ten” says Robert Kahler, Hang Ten Bike Manager.

There are many women who continue to inspire us between some of the most creative minds from the worlds of fashion, art and entertainment, business and women leaders in our local communities. Ocean is pleased to present Fatma Yuceler, of Turkish Airlines Los Angeles Office, and recent Los Angeles Business Journal Women in Business Nominee as our most inspirational woman in business this Summer.

Ocean: What does being a woman in business mean to you? Fatma: To be a woman in business means I have a voice to

Fatma Yuceler currently serves as the General Manager of the Turkish Airlines Western USA office with her primary job to oversee and expand the airline’s sales and airport operations.

Ocean: What or who has been your greatest influence or inspiration in business and why? Fatma: I can honestly say that there are many people who

Having grown up on Turkish hospitality, a signature cultural emblem respected throughout the world, her studies at Istanbul University in Turkey continued a path of professional development and education in the fields of marketing, corporate agreements and negotiations, and public relations. It was during this time she realized that she wanted to take Turkey’s world renowned and much sought after type of hospitality to the rest of the world, and what better way to do so and impact the lives of so many people than through the airline industry. In May 2010, Fatma arrived in Los Angeles with a directive to establish the entire sales and airport operations for the Turkish Airlines Los Angeles office. The huge growth and success we have experienced in the L.A. market has been an incomparable highlight of her time with the airline. “When I took over as General Manager of the Turkish Airlines Western USA office, the main challenge we faced with was in expanding our airline’s brand recognition and market share in the L.A. market. Frankly, up to then, the L.A. market was not a strong one for Turkish Airlines. We had little or no brand awareness in the market at the time.” In a short period, Fatma has prompted that change through intense marketing, promotional and advertising efforts, and strategic expansion of services in the L.A. region, along with high profile partnerships and sponsorships. “We knew we needed to reach an audience in L.A. with a diverse background.”

be heard and to make a difference. In my current position, I have the ability to regularly communicate and interact with the movers and shakers in the airline industry, both in and outside Turkish Airlines. Through my associations with them, I can bring to life ideas and initiatives that produce tangible, impactful results, results that benefit people monetarily and otherwise. I wouldn’t be able to do that in any other capacity.

have influenced me for good and inspired me to persevere and succeed in business. Having worked with Turkish Airlines now for over 20 years, my supervisors and peers at Turkish Airlines have all had an enormous impact on me. They are family to me, and I strive to make my airline family proud by working each day to represent the very best of what Turkish Airlines has to offer.

Ocean: What three life factors that have contributed most to your success? Fatma: My success with Turkish Airlines has been the


result of three business practices crucial to success in any business. First, my L.A. team and I consistently work to maintain and calibrate our regional business procedures so that they align with the overall vision of Turkish Airlines. Second, I clearly communicate to everyone their role in the office, and in the company at large, so that everyone knows how they can optimize their work time and effectively contribute to the company’s overall vision. Third, I keep in close communication with my team members to make sure we fulfill our respective roles and remain focused on achieving our goals. Communication is key for us.

Ocean: What leadership qualities do you most admire? Fatma: I admire leaders who know how to effectively and persuasively communicate their vision and direction to others. Such communication inspires people to be their best selves. It helps them see that they have a special role to play in their company or organization, which further inspires them to make a meaningful contribution. I also admire leaders who encourage those whom they oversee to rise up and be leaders themselves. A leader who can create leaders bequeaths to their company or organization a powerful legacy of human capital, and that is something that can’t be purchased at the kiosk or manufactured on the factory floor.

Ocean: What’s the best advice you have received in business that you wish to pass on to our readers? Fatma: Leave each place where you work better off than when you first arrived. Distinguish yourself. Leave your mark for others to see.

Ocean: What “rules” do you live by? Fatma: Don’t settle for less than your best. Work hard for the future. It’s there if you want it.

Ocean: Are there any resources or tools you’d like to share with other women in business that have helped you attain such a great success in the industry? Fatma: It all begins with a simple, yet powerful belief that you have something unique and special to offer as a woman and a person. Don’t let stereotypes or inhibitions deter you from following your dreams. Remember that you have a voice that can make a difference. Speak up and speak out. Lean in, as Sheryl Sandberg and other successful women have advised. Learn how to effectively communicate your ideas and how to channel them into worthwhile projects. You will be surprised how many doors will open for you when you do.

Ocean: Do you have any new projects coming up?

Fatma: In July of this year, my team and I will return to the renowned Global Business Travel Association Convention, held this year in Los Angeles, to highlight the airlines’ amazing growth over the past year. We are excited to showcase Turkish Airlines’ outstanding amenities, services, and accomplishments.

Ocean: What is Number One Business Goal you plan to accomplish over the next year? Fatma: To be the number one luxury airline in the L.A. market, something we are well on the way to become.

Ocean: What is your favorite travel must-see within Turkey? Fatma: I love the Blue Mosque in Istanbul. Everyone should make the time to visit there while in Turkey.

Ocean: What do you love most about Turkey? Why would you recommend it as our 2014’s Most Stylish Travel Destination? Fatma: The food. The music. The history. The people. I love it all. And it seems that I’m not the only one. According to TripAdvisor’s 2014 Travelers’ Choice Destinations, released in April, Istanbul recently beat out Rome and London as the world’s top city for travelers. Istanbul is a luxurious, lively spot perfect for both the laid-back tourist and the avid adventurer. Turkey, with one foot in Europe and another in Asia, brings together a wide range of cultures and stories that every tourist can witness and enjoy.

Ocean: What makes Turkish Airlines unique a leader in the industry? Fatma: What distinguishes Turkish Airlines is the warmth of the Turkish people and our superior customer service. We treat our passengers the same as we would our guests visiting our homes and we try to do whatever we can to make them happy. The friendliness of our cabin crew and all of our employees, the richness of our in-flight food and treats we offer, our overall strong customer service makes a lasting impression. We put our heart and soul into making sure our passengers experience Turkish hospitality from the moment they step on to our plane to the moment they set foot into our country.

Ocean: What is your best advice for our readers? Fatma: Make the time to travel throughout your life. If there is one thing I have learned over the course of my career in the airline industry, and specifically with Turkish Airlines, the world is a beautiful place with so much to offer.

BEACH PARTY

SUN, SURF AND SAND PROVIDE A BEAUTIFUL BACKDROP FOR YOUR SUMMER SHINDIG written by Tanja Kern

FIRST GLANCE

Few of us are lucky enough to have a beachfront house along the Malibu coast or at Australia’s Bondi Beach. But geography doesn’t have to preclude you from hosting a sizzling summer soirée. Any public beach with clean sand and cool water for splashing around in can serve as an idyllic setting for a fun-filled Saturday afternoon. Choose a spot that also allows bonfires and you have instant ambience after sunset.

IN THE DETAILS

Summer entertaining should be casual. Skip the complicated recipes and opt for dishes that feature fresh seafood and seasonal fruits and veggies. Keep decorations to a minimum. Fashion a cozy spot for lounging, and create a bit of shade with a few boldly colored blankets and a patterned beach umbrella. Pack up your drinks and

snacks picnic-style in an extra-large cooler and basket, and bring along buckets for building sandcastles or a volleyball net for an impromptu competition. For soft lighting after dark, plant a few solar-powered tiki torches in the sand.

WHAT TO WEAR

Splurging on the right bikini—one that hugs your curves and leaves minimal tan lines—is a must for summer frolick-ing. Top it with a breezy sundress or gauzy tunic when you’re hanging out on the beach. Be sure to protect your skin with a generous dollop of moisturizing sunscreen, and shield your face with a cute hat. Pack a comfy shawl for when the sun goes down.


SIPS

Have plenty of chilled bottled water on hand so guests can stay hydrated, but keep things festive with a few summery cocktails, too. Not every beach allows alcohol, so nix no-no glass bottles or cans. Instead, make a “poptail” by pouring your favorite summer cocktail or mocktail recipe into ice pop molds. (WilliamsSonoma has some great ones!) Pack these in a cooler and you’re good to go.

ICY WATERMELON POPS 6 cups cubed, seedless watermelon 1 tablespoon sugar

Place watermelon pieces and sugar in blender or food processor and purée until smooth. Pour into ice pop molds and chill for at least 8 hours. Makes 6 pops

2 large tomatoes, chopped 1½ cups fresh or frozen corn, blanched in hot water and drained ¼ cup julienned basil Extra-virgin olive oil Balsamic vinegar Salt and pepper

MUSIC

Bring along your favorite tunes with a waterresistant portable sound system, like the iHome boom box from Brookstone. Made for the iPod Nano and Shuffle, this clever gadget allows you to manage your music without touching the player with wet, sandy hands.

WHAT TO SERVE STRAWBERRY MARGARITA POPTAILS ICY WATERMELON POP SCOOL AND SPICY SHRIMP SUMMER HARVEST SALAD FRUITY S’MORES

STRAWBERRY MARGARITA POPTAILS

1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice ½ cup water ½ cup triple sec* ¼ cup tequila* ½ cup superfine sugar 1 pint strawberries, quartered Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and purée until very smooth and the sugar is completely dissolved. Pour mixture into ice pop molds and freeze for at least 8 hours.*To make a virgin poptail, substitute another ½ cup water and ¼ cup fresh lime juice for the tequila and triple sec. Makes 6 pops

SUMMER HARVEST SALAD

COOL AND SPICY SHRIMP 1½ pounds medium or large shrimp, peeled and deveined 4 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons butter 4 garlic cloves, pressed 2 tablespoons minced shallots ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes (or to taste) 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice ¼ teaspoon salt2 tablespoons chopped parsley

Heat oil and butter in a skillet. Add garlic and shallots and sauté until shallots are translucent, about 2 minutes. Add shrimp and red pepper flakes. Cook until shrimp are pink, about 3 minutes. Toss mixture into a bowl. Add lemon juice, salt and parsley. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Makes 4 servings

Place tomato, corn and basil in a medium-size plastic bowl. Drizzle in balsamic vinegar and olive oil to taste. Stir. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste and stir. Cover bowl and chill for 1 hour so flavors meld. Mix salad before serving. Makes 4 servings

FRUITY S’MORES

4 large marshmallows 1 Hershey’s milk chocolate bar 4 graham crackers, halved ¼ cup sliced fresh fruit pieces (bananas or strawberries work well) 4 roasting sticks Place marshmallows on a stick and toast over bonfire or grill until soft.

N I E D A M A I L A R T AU S


Designers we LOVE

Talulah Talulah is fun and bright while still maintaining a sophisticated air. Cool and rocker chic, the Urban Glam shorts ($240) may be the perfect pair of leather shorts. For the perfect outfit, pair the shorts with the Lights Shone top ($220) for a look that’s chic and fun. The next time your family gets together, the Glistening Fields skirt ($150) is bound to be the first thing you grab out of your closet. The colors and pattern make it grandma-ok while the sparkle keeps with your youthful vibe. You’ll want to crash a wedding to wear one of the next two dresses. The Beaming Rays dress ($300) and the Winter Morning dress ($320) are both stunning cocktail dresses that you’ll never want to take off!

Isla by Talulah

Breezy and beautiful, the Isla line by Talulah maintains that sophisticatied vibe that Talulah is so good at achieving but with a more playful side. Summer always has a couple chilly days, and the Star Power Jacket ($100) is the perfect jacket. For those warmer days though, the Isla line has you covered for any occasion. Running errands all day? The Beautiful Stranger playsuit ($90) is beautiful and fun. The Ticks the Box top ($50) shows a lot of skin, but the colors are gorgeous. For a hot summer look, pair the top with the Cheeky Thing skirt ($60) for a look that’s sure to be an attention stopper. Want a little more coverage? The Liberty dress ($90) is red hot!


Alia Blue

Luxurious and bohemian, Alila Blue is “designed for the beach chic jet setter.” Hand-dyed fabrics, exceptional fabrics, and a love of travel and different cultures makes each piece a stunner. The brand’s latest collection, Isla Fever, harkens to the exotic beach background of designer Mai Myama. From bikini tops to maxi dresses, the collection is fun and playful but not necessarily youthful. There’s a certain elegance to each piece that lends an air of maturity while still being fabulous.


Jac + Jack

Jac + Jack do simplicity, and they do it very well. With high quality materials that are soft and silky to the touch, each item of clothing promises to become a staple in your closet. Australia is about to go through it’s winter, and Jac + Jack have created several sweaters that are perfect for you travelling girls or those chilly nights out on the water. We like the Brady sweater with it’s thick collar and the Tilly sweater ($300) for everyday wear. Have to wear a plain white shirt but want to spice it up a bit? The Dean tee ($220) is anything but boring. Finally, for those of you who love your comfort, the Beck pant ($180) is actually a pair of sweatpants—but we won’t tell anyone!


Napoleon Perdis Life.Style Napoleon Perdis started Life.Style as a way to pay homage to all of his favorite things. Perdis says that Life.Style is an “appreciation of a fab frock, a can’t live without piece of jewelry, a great homeware.” Curated from several different designers, the collection is always changing, and always fresh. There’s also a wide variety of options so all tastes are represented. You can find a tea set for your old-fashioned cousin and a fabulous pair of sunglasses for your trendy mom. Shop by brand or by item to find exactly what you want. When you visit the website, make sure to look on the Australian site to find the Life.Style page!


Best of Beauty

Jurlique

We all know that first impressions, whether we like it or not, are crucial, so it’s important to always put your best foot forward. Jurlique helps you do just that with a range of beauty products that have been favored by celebrities and house moms alike. No matter which side of the equator you’re on, the weather is bound to cause some skin issues. Head them off with the Balancing Foaming Cleanser ($45), a hydrating wash that’s safe to use everyday, and the Citrus Body Care Lotion ($38) that hydrates and energizes your tired skin. For those spa days at home, treat yourself to a Purely Age-Defying Firming Treatment Mask ($62) to perk up your face and give a little boost in your step.


Napoleon Perdis Napoleon Perdis is best known for his beauty line that incorporates all the beauty tools, supplies, and treatments you can think of. His latest product is great for those days when you’ve woken up feeling like you’re 200 years old. The AutoPilot Radiance Boosting Mask ($85) is easy to apply and will perk you up better than your first sip of coffee. When you don’t feel like putting on a full face of makeup, the Tinted Moisturizer ($45) is the perfect alternative. The lightweight mousse lightly covers your face so that you look fresh and pretty. Eye shadow lovers, you’ll adore the Loose Eye Dusts ($25). Each canister shakes out the perfect amount for you to use each time, so you never have to worry if it’s too much or not. Makeup that helps you? We’re all for it!


KORA by Miranda Kerr

If you’ve been wishing that you had Miranda Kerr’s skin (and really, who hasn’t?), then now’s your chance. Each product in the beauty line has a little anecdote from Miranda about when she uses it, even in everyday life.

Aries:

Cancer:

Libra:

Always willing to try new things, Aries are often ahead of the curve when it comes to beauty innovations. Since this driven sign likes to multitask, Aries may gravitate towards a spa treatment that focuses on the face and head, which this sign is linked to, like a facial that does triple duty exfoliating, hydrating and firming. Incorporating two of the latest trends in skincare, the Ultimate Hydradermabrasion Experience at the Ole Henriksen Face/Body Spa in Los Angeles uses LED light therapy and the HydraFacial process, making it perfect for the cutting-

A Water sign ruled by the Moon, Cancer is apt to enjoy any type of spa day that includes aquatic treatments, whether it’s a Vichy shower or just a dip in the Jacuzzi. Yet when it can be found, a spa with thalassotherapy can be an immensely rejuvenating experience for Cancer. Defined by its use of salt water enriched with minerals and algae, thalassotherapy practice banks on the therapeutic effects of warm seawater, but the Ayana Resort in Bali takes it to another level. An hour spent in the resort’s large Aquatonic therapy pool overlooking the exquisite Balinese coastline will feel like a dip in the fountain of life.

Like Taurus, Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty, so this typically stylish sign is known to love all of life’s luxuries, like silky fabrics, plush interiors and, of course, jewelry. Whether or not the healing properties of precious gems can be confirmed, it’s still a treat to have them, say, working out the kinks in your muscles. The spa at the Trump Hotel Las Vegas takes the lead on gemstone therapy with their signature treatments, like the Purifying Diamonds massage, Calming Sapphires massage and Balancing Emeralds massage. Failing that, a hot stone massage that concentrates on the lower back, ruled by

Taurus:

Leo:

Thai Massage

Can you say, “ahhh”?

This active, athletic sign is one that may benefit from the less delicate but equally soothing types of massage, like deep tissue or Hawaiian lomilomi. Strenuous yet relaxing Thai massage may be ideal for Lions because it’s also interactive. The therapist stretches, applies strong pressure and even walks on the client’s back to work out and limber up tense muscles. Plus, Leo rules the back and spine, so a treatment that concentrates on the upper body could be the Lion’s spa catnip. Various Exhale Spa outposts offer the Thai Stretch massage, which blends yoga and acupressure for an experience that stimulates the body and centers the mind.

Gemini:

Virgo:

Ruled by the pleasure planet, Venus, a Taurus adores rich sensory experiences, from a gourmet meal to a state-of-the-art sound system. Plus, an Earth sign knows how to chill, so when Taurus natives want a truly relaxing yet stimulating experience, they should plan for an aromatherapy body treatment that excites their senses. Bliss Spa, with locations across the nation, entices with the deliciously named carrot-and-sesame body buff. Why not follow it up with the Rhythm & ‘Bliss’ massage, during which you can listen to a music mix on noise-canceling headphones.

Soothing Manicure Since ultra-expressive Geminis are known for talking with their hands and wildly gesticulating, it makes sense that this sign is associated with the hands, fingers and arms. A soothing manicure accompanied by a hand-and-arm massage fits the bill for this always-on-the-go sign who often needs a reason to sit down and be quiet. For instance, Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa menus include a milk-and-honey manicure that is sure to ease the stress and tension that a hectic Gemini’s life is known to create.

Detox Body Wrap The sign of the Virgin is associated with purity of both mind and body. Even more, the sixth house, ruled by Virgo, represents a person’s healthy habits and fitness routine, so detoxifying treatments can make a perfect match for this earthy sign who prefers natural therapies. The original Canyon Ranch location in Tucson, Arizona, has the ultimate detox body wrap, using warm sheets of fabric soaked in an herbal concoction. It’s the kind of treatment to put this sometimes overly analytical sign’s mind—and body—at ease.

Gemstone or Hot Stone Massage

Libra, could make this sign’s day.

Scorpio: Mud Bath

It’s not exactly a nod to Scorpio’s intense sensuality to say that this sign doesn’t mind getting dirty, but it is thought to be true nonetheless. Scorpios are known for their proclivity to dig deep in order transform themselves, and a great mud bath, while seemingly icky, is nothing if not transformative. After they emerge feeling younger and more invigorated, fans say that the experience is relaxing, detoxifying and skin nourishing, likely due to the volcanic ash and complex minerals in mud from geothermal areas like Calistoga, California. There, a number of spas and resorts like Calistoga Ranch make both indoor and outdoor mud baths available, creating the ultimate start to a total body makeover.

Sagittarius:

Invigorating Body Scrub Always in motion, a Sagittarius may desperately need a relaxing spa day but might not be able to sit still long enough to really enjoy one. Enter the invigorating body scrub, which can appease Sag’s need for constant stimulation and help reclaim the glow characteristic of this young-at-heart sign. As the travelers of the zodiac, Sagittarius natives are apt to find themselves in far-flung destinations, like The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua in Maui. The resort’s spacious spa promises nirvana in the form of the Cocolicious Cocoon, during which you’re scrubbed down with coconut-infused sea salt and then wrapped in a coconut oil and cocoa butter “cocoon”, surely one of the only ways to keep a Sag in one place.


Capricorn:

Aquarius:

Pisces:

Though a frugal Earth sign, Capricorns have a soft spot for status symbols like nice cars, five-star hotels and fine wine. Caps are known to be extraordinarily hard-working and ambitious, which can lead to total burnout, so a quiet hour in the hands of an aesthetician will surely revitalize natives of this sign. The world-renowned Caudalie has created the Vinotherapie series employing the antioxidant and exfoliating qualities of wine and grapes. Offered at several of their locations, Caudalie’s Premier Cru Facial uses specially formulated techniques like rollers and a hydrogel mask to help erase those worry lines. And afterwards? A glass of vino,

Achilles’ heel might as well be renamed Aquarius’ heel, since the sign rules the ankle, shins and calves. Because they’ve got both the abundant energy (Air element) and the stamina (Fixed quality), Water Bearers, like their symbol, are usually heading somewhere, so they should take a load off with a restorative pedicure. New York’s Jin Soon Hand and Foot Spas are just the place for Aquarians to give their hooves special treatment, and the Magic Clay Slipper, including a sugar scrub and a clay

Deeply sensitive, dreamy and often mystical, a Pisces might be the first sign to explore alternative therapies, from homeopathy to ayurveda. The sign rules the feet, which suggests that the Pisces-born would really enjoy reflexology, essentially a foot massage that is designed to balance the body’s energy, or chi, to encourage overall wellness. In many cities, reflexology therapists and foot massage spas can be found all over the place. Yet with Pisces’ adventurous spirit, a week of reflexology and other ayurvedic treatments at the stunning Ananda Spa set in the Himalayan foothills would be the trip of a lifetime for the sign of the Fish.
