Twisteez Salon & Supply outfits hair in the latest head-flattering fashions with a plethora of professional styling and texturizing services. A Keratin Complex treatment rids locks of curly-fried frizz for up to three–five months. Developed by an experienced stylist, the specially formulated smoothing system rebuilds, restores, and rejuvenates unstable strands. After the two- to three-hour session, manes emerge easier to dry and style, and less likely to crinkle and curl during strolls through humid rainstorms or car washes.
During your month-long trial membership at Anytime Fitness ($100), you can re-bloom your wilted health with the state-of-the-art facility's diverse range of cardio and strength equipment. Exploit muscles for non-financial gain with free weights, tone legs on the treadmills, undergo a demanding tour de fitness-center via exercise bikes, or just catch up on reruns of Homeboys from Outer Space on the flat-screen TVs located near the treadmills, ellipticals, and Lifecycle machines. If the flawed workout plan you concocted yourself results only in frighteningly muscular ring fingers, one of Anytime's motivating trainers can prescribe a regimen designed to help you meet your fitness goals during your three personal-training sessions included in your trial membership ($150). Complete the sculpting of your flesh-statue with an Apollo finish with one month of unlimited tanning ($40), and then purify yourself of sweat and fried-cheese memories in Anytime's private showers.
Chop Shop Salon specializes in hair and nail services. Stylists offer professional haircuts, styling, coloring, and perms to help clients find fresh new looks, as well as hair extensions. The salon also staffs nail technicians who tidy up digits to increase people’s chances of impressing colleagues and hailing taxis.
At Chop Shop Salon, Tammy Abbott's clients often leave her manicure table with digits featuring custom drawn designs, such as jack-o'-lanterns, baseballs, and sparkles. Other clients opt for simple solid colors, and that's OK, because Tammy stocks a wide assortment of hues. Either way, after Tammy is finished, she primps and protects clients' nails with durable, glossy Gelish polish or eye-catching acrylic nails.
One of Bakersfield's largest day spas, Essentiels Spa et Beauté offers clients an array of services targeting the hair, skin, nails, and muscles. Turn your torso over to one of the spa's lead kneaders for a fully customized hour of integrative massage, which can incorporate hot stones, focus on particular regions of your body, or otherwise tailor itself to your wants, needs, and muscular event horizons. Those who mostly hold tension in their face can opt instead for a 60-minute European-style Essentiels signature facial, a multifaceted pamper party that leaves necks and shoulders rubbed, hands and feet coddled, and cranial facades soft, smooth, and glowing with the sort of radiance impossible to achieve through glow-stick earrings. Essentiels complements its satisfying services with the ambient assets of an urban-chic environment, giving guests an elegant escape from the frenetic pace and gauche mimes of everyday life.
