Despite what its modest name suggests, Simply Hair Salon & Beauty Supply does a lot more than hair. Sure, their stylists can sculpt a beautiful and personalized haircut, straighten curls with keratin, or add some extra dimension with highlights. But the team also boasts aestheticians who revitalize skin with facials, sculpt eyebrows, and turn nails into tiny pieces of art during mani-pedis. Simply Hair's roster of most valuable players also includes a particular inanimate object: candles. When placed in the ear and lit—a process appropriately known as ear candling—they can potentially treat ear problems and annoying issues, such as allergies or a weird voice that only seems to speak during the finale of TV shows. On special occasions, the salon opens its doors to host stylish events. In the past, this has included showcasing the fashionable jeans of Lavender Blues and Vault Denim.

Color Me Mine Modesto’s studio puts paintbrushes and pottery in the hands of customers old and young. Party guests or budding Toyozo Arakawas follow four easy steps to craft beautifully painted ceramics, first choosing a ceramic piece from a selection of hundreds of seasonally changing items. After charting out a desired design from their imaginations or Color Me Mine's technique sheets, painters will select an underglaze from a cast of more than 50 colors, then apply paint with the focus of a peregrine falcon occupied by a Rockwellian spirit. Color Me Mine handles all kiln-firing work, allowing clients to take home their final products within five to seven days.
