Melissa Peterson - a new member to the team at The Face Place - believes in giving back to her community. After learning the beauty trade in Sonoma County, she stuck around, treating local clients at The Face Place to restorative face and skin services. When she’s not showing off her encyclopedic knowledge of Dermalogica products in the skincare salon, combating premature aging with touch therapy, or ushering in relaxation with aromatherapy, she also helps clients nurture healthy skin at home. Melissa crafts custom at-home regimens, using her Dermalogica know-how to address each set of skin’s hopes, fears, and health issues.

Creation Salon’s team of expert stylists, therapists, and aestheticians enhances hair, skin, nails, and muscles within a brightly hued cottage storefront. Owner Amber Hale and her fellow coiffeuses treat locks to alluring new ‘dos or blowouts, daub tresses with block coloring, and charm snakes before sculpting gorgon-inspired dreadlocks. Manicures and pedicures treat appendages to massages and herb soaks, and facials soothe stressed skin with gentle cleansers. A warm bath of wax relieves underarms, bikini areas, and eyebrows of unwanted fringe and primes skin for applications of glitter tattoos, whose waterproof designs pay homage to favorite shapes or phrases from the Constitution. Behind a mint-green façade and wrought-iron porch, a gleaming chandelier casts its warm light on the salon’s reception area.
