I have a day spa and would like to register it as LLC for personal protection. Is this allowable under California Business and Professions Code? I'd rather LLC than S Corp for ease of registration and maintenance. Thank you.
Running a day spa would certainly qualify as a lawful purpose for an LLC under CA law so it would be possible. As to the specifics of what the B & P code has to say about actually running a day spa, you need to hire an attorney to research that. You will also have health regulations you need to comply with. You should hire an attorney to help in the LLC formation process and the regulatory hoops you will have to jump through.

An LLC should be fine. A business that provides services requiring a license, certification, or registration pursuant to the Business & Professions Code may conduct its activities as an LLC if the services rendered require nonprofessional, occupational license.
Work with an attorney to help you navigate the LLC organization process, especially if you have partners.
