Nyeisha Teague, owner of Orchid Salon, draws on a decade of professional expertise as she teaches clients to develop healthy hair habits. In addition to treating hair to natural care techniques, she softens frizzy strands with relaxers, tints tresses, and lengthens manes with weaving and extensions. When she isn't snipping new looks, she waxes unwanted fuzz, leaving skin as smooth as James Bond playing a saxophone solo.
AutoCouture's technicians spruce up shaggy automobiles with delicate hand washes and extensive detailing services. During the 30-minute hand scrub, caring cleaners nurse cars' outer shells with concentrated car shampoos and comforting factory rhymes. Technicians also shovel residue from fender wells and clear out grime from wheels and tires, gently dry the surface complexion with a hand-operated chamois, and finish off with air dryers. Drivers opting for the single-wash option sit back for another 15 minutes as vacuums comb the interior and snuff out any debris foolish enough to show itself.
Armed with biodegradable products safe for children and pets, White's Mobile Detail's team of experts carefully cleanses vehicles at patrons' parking spots or at its Pleasanton facility. Staffers treat autos to weekly, bi-monthly, and monthly check-ins, or dole out one-time deals with a range of detailing packages. They hand wash and dry exteriors, preserve paint’s luster with Meguiar’s wax, and dress tires to protect them from dirt and the sniffles. Indoors, the team releases snarling vacuum hoses to suck debris from the cabins and trunk, and massages carpets and upholstery with shampoo and leather and vinyl surfaces with conditioners. White’s Mobile Detail treats vehicles of all sizes, from cars to extra-large SUVs, and totes all its equipment to off-site locations.
As a plane whooshes down into the San Francisco International Airport, a uniformed chauffeur is waiting, ready to whisk his passenger to the next destination in a glimmering limousine. Once inside, the passenger can sip on complimentary champagne and soda as the driver heads through town, pulling from an extensive knowledge of the area to navigate the streets and point out sites of interest.

Their fleet includes executive sedans, luxury SUVs, stretch hummers, and party buses boasting lavish amenities such as wide-screen televisions, bars, and horns that beep out the theme from James Bond.

The company’s chauffeurs escort groups of revelers to wineries located in Napa Valley and Sonoma, showing off some of the area’s more than 300 grape-growing establishments on custom limo tours. They also whisk travelers to the airport, saving them the hassle of building a plane to fly there.
