Best Pedicure

Pedicure buffs know that a long-lasting polish is nothing without an even longer foot scrub and rub. At Frédéric Fekkai SalonTien or Sarah will spend more than 30 minutes making all those rough spots disappear—using four different files and the salon’s signature shea butter cream—before toes are touched.

Genia Gregorian, at the Four Seasons spa in Beverly Hills, counts politicos, royalty, and humbler soles among her clients, many of whom forgo color for a clear polish or buff—that’s how impressive her clipper, file, and pumice work is. Sit in a luxe reclining chair in a sunny room at the spa or get the treatment in a poolside cabana. (Four Seasons Hotel, 300 S. Doheny Dr., Beverly Hills, 310-273-2222)
