When April Antz first opened Bevel Salon, she wanted to foster a diverse atmosphere while focusing on sustainable practices. In pursuit of this goal, she hired a team of extensively trained, culturally sensitive stylists and compiled a collection of organic and plant-based styling products. Made by Davines, these shampoos, conditioners, and balancing treatments boast ingredient labels brimming with natural botanicals and free of synthetic chemicals, allergens, and blond jokes. The salon also wields the Davines Mask Color System, which employs a milk-protein base to soothe scalps and bolster hair-shaft health when clients return home. Because Bevel Salon's stylists flaunt unique hair types of their own, they're especially suited to sculpt and nourish locks of many shapes, textures, and hues, especially in services such as weaves and relaxers.
The sunny, seasoned corpus-and-countenance caretakers at Elixir Salon holster an array of prestigious awards alongside their Aveda armaments and nimble digits. Brick walls, arched windows, and high ceilings greet pore proprietors to the Berkeley salon and spa's inviting, unassuming setting, where you'll be open to the choice of a one-hour facial or massage. Entrust the visage to the holistic healing powers of skin specialist Erika Bunnin for the Elixir Facial, the facility's signature facial. During the deeply relaxing treatment, she'll take into account your skin's needs and conditions before choosing a customized procedure that fits best, employing rejuvenating products and massages to eliminate toxins and impurities. If the shrieks of an aching muscle mass stir tossing and turning in your straw cot, licensed knead therapist Amanda Whitehead can apply her therapeutic, powerful palms and lilting coo to soothe afflicted areas with the choice of Swedish, deep-tissue, prenatal, or postpartum techniques. The combination of a comfortable environment and calming, flowing pressure renews and balances, restoring your body to a nubile state of relaxed joyousness unlike any since you got your braces removed.
The stylists at U.C. Hair Salon and Waxing have several techniques to help their clients' new styles last as long as possible. They use ionic blow dryers, which are designed to eliminate frizz and boost shine better than their nonionic counterparts. They also rely on ceramic curling irons to emit just the right amount of heat, which results in less damage to hair.
During each of their signature haircut, perming, and highlighting services, they employ professional products from lines such as Bed Head, Joico, and Modern Organic Products. Once styles are finished, the team gives clients tips and tricks on how to re-create the salon look at home.
