From your tips to your tresses, refine your beauty regime with help from these O.C. businesses.

1. Drybar swung open the doors on its fourth O.C. location, at Balboa Bay Club where the blowout and style-only salon is offering its full menu of signature looks, like the sleek Manhattan and wavy Mai Tai to guests and locals alike. Stock up on its in-house line of styling products or book a private party to fill its six seats with your finest friends. Services from $45, Newport Beach

2. Less than a year after opening its first SoCal location in Newport Beach, Illuminate Face & Body Bar has welcomed its second outpost, in Irvine. Expect signature essential oil blends and customized crystal pairings with each appointment as you combat Mother Nature with anti-aging treatments ranging from Botox and IPL facials to body contouring treatments like BodyFx and CoolSculpting.

3. Finally, revamp your at-home mani-pedi treatments with Anaheim-based LBK Nail Lacquers, a luxe line of 48 vegan-friendly, gel-effect shades. A patented cap with a built-in nail sample allows you to try on the shade before you paint. Nailing it, indeed. $10 per bottle
