Green isn't just a daring shade of nail polish at ROB/B, nailcare giant OPI's first foray into "concept salons." The Studio City, Calif.-based cuticle-pampering mother ship, which dispenses dibutyl phthalate-free mani pedis alongside Murad facials and massage treatments, is Los Angeles' only Gold LEED-certified spa—and just one of four in the United States.

Recycled concrete floors set the stage for Plyboo furniture, cascading waterfalls that gush recycled water, walls coated with sustainable plaster, and a rooftop patio shade constructed from recycled paper.
