Zen Organic Salon fulfills the promise of its name with a full slate of organic products and an atmosphere that promotes Zen-like relaxation. It all starts with the stylists, who cut and color hair in ways that complement their clients' natural beauty. Not far from the styling chairs, nail technicians soften skin and apply polish during luxurious mani-pedis. Some of the salon's other services include waxing and bridal makeup, which is extremely helpful for those planning a beachside wedding with bathing-suit attire.
Bay Beauty Spa is exactly as advertised: a relaxing spa retreat located mere blocks from the shores of the San Francisco Bay. Though the spa has only been open for a short time, its therapists and aestheticians have already devised a full menu of beauty treatments for the skin and body. These treatments include pore-cleansing facials, head-to-toe exfoliation, and massages that incorporate everything from gentle strokes to hot stones. Top off a day of pampering with a professional makeup application that can help you get glammed up for a wedding, date, or driver's license photo.
At Hibiscus Boutique Spa, clients’ relaxation begins before their appointments, with soft music playing in the lobby where a fountain gently bubbles. Each appointment begins with a consultation that helps the staff personalize massages, facials, and spa services to optimally satisfy each guest’s unique needs. The staff blends more than 150 raw ingredients including clays, herbs, essential oils, and flower waters to craft their own masks, toners, and serums in-house. Visitors may enjoy complimentary herbal tea and chocolate during their stay.
Kylie Dayton?s career as an aesthetician has taken her into some ritzy rooms. After her stint as the skincare expert at a cosmetic surgeon's office, she worked at Bliss Spa and the Four Seasons San Francisco. Today, Dayton brings her dermatological skill sets to her very own spa. She administers facials?including her signature 30-minute Basic Bonsai?and also paints skin with light- and medium-depth PCA peels. Like a Carmen Miranda hat, Dayton's peels are perfect for special occasions and often contain fruit, including papaya and pomegranate. As a certified PCA Skin expert, Dayton is well-versed in the Jessner peel, and she stocks the line's daily-use items for purchase. Dayton, who has honed her skin-treatment skills over the last nine years, feels strongly that daily maintenance makes a huge difference. To this end, she makes sure that clients leaving her crystal-chandelier-lit spa take skincare wisdom home along with their newly glowing complexions.
The nail technicians of Solano Nails Spa grant hands and feet the royal treatment with a menu of both traditional and deluxe manicures and pedicures. For an extra dose of relaxation and beautician, their digit-dignifying services sometimes include additional treatments, such as massages, exfoliating scrubs, and skin-smoothing masks. Their shellac manicures keep nails chip-free for up to several weeks, just long enough to convince fingers that time has stopped indefinitely.
