Clotilde Barnes's passion for holistic healthcare and nutrition has led her around the globe. After graduating from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico, the native of Veracruz, Mexico, went on to train at the Western College for Medical Assistance and the San Francisco School of Massage while becoming a licensed medical aesthetician. Her journey to the U.S. in 2000 drew her deeper into the medical field, affording her the opportunity to work with family doctors, dermatologists, and chiropractors. Barnes has pooled everything that science and ancient traditions have taught her, and has owned her own business since 2008.
Barnes promotes health and well-being with alternative therapies such as reflexology sessions, which balance bodily energy via pressure points in the feet. Organic chemical peels exfoliate skin with gentle enzymes and minerals to diminish fine lines. She also performs photofacials that employ light-emitting diodes, diachronic lamps, or Lite-Brite pins to boost collagen production and combat signs of aging.
As the owners of The Art of Hair Salon, Hanh Tran and David LouSana share two concerns: helping their clients to progress in terms of beauty, and helping their stylists to progress in terms of knowledge. On most Mondays, Tran leads in-house classes that equip the salon's stylists with new skills and advanced techniques. The rest of the week is the stylists' proving ground, and they rise to their mentor's challenge by deftly chopping split ends, transforming hair color, and adding extra length with So.Cap. hair extensions. During these treatments—each of which includes a blow-dry and style—they rely on 100% certified organic hair color and products from Keratin+.
Not to be outdone, the salon's aestheticians wax away facial hair and enhance features with professional makeup applications. They tailor their treatments to individual clients, working with them to add seductive shades to eyelids and seductive mustaches to upper lips.
