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.
Michelle Lynn Battermann draws upon nearly two decades of experience in the fields of holistic medicine, nutrition, and wellness. Those skills come in handy at Thairapeutics, the salon, spa, and health center she?s owned and run since 2003. In her years of researching healing methods from the East and West, she's earned certifications as a massage therapist, a personal trainer, a naturopathic doctor, a nutrition specialist, a barber, and a cosmetologist?and she brings all of these to bear during her work at Thairapeutics. Her clients might include injured athletes, those looking to lose weight, and patrons in need of pain relief. Michelle and her staff tackle the issues at hand with a holistic outlook, addressing physical symptoms as well as mental ones.
While fixing these issues, the team tends to rely on chemical-free plant-based products. Formulas from Eminence Organics augment facials, and Innersense Beauty haircare serums strengthen locks. Thairapeutics also devises 6- to 12-week programs around specific goals or ailments. A nutrition program, for example, covers procedures for improving hair and skin in addition to dietary guidance, and a program for chronic stress blends Eastern massage therapies with focused stretching and breathing exercises.
During its 20 years in business, Meilin Salon & Spa has drawn its share of loyal clients, including one who travels from out of town just for a session in stylist/owner Amy?s chair. Chalk these allegiances up to the artistic stylists, who forego cookie-cutter services for customized treatments that take into account each client?s personal style and favorite shampoo flavor. Then there?s the atmosphere?saffron-colored walls evoke feelings of escape that are only elevated by the smell of organic oils, teas, candles, and all-natural fragrances. And, of course, there are the treatments themselves; haircuts, coloring services, and relaxing scalp massages incorporate all-natural hair care products, while relaxing massages, full body masques, mani-pedis, and facials leave clients feeling pampered from head to toe.
At Blesk Salon & Spa, stylists fold hair into foils, curl it into locks, and snip its ends. Those are just a few of the salon's services, which range from cuts and coloring to smoothing treatments. The team can shampoo and trim locks, or change their hue with glossing, highlights, or a joke guaranteed to make roots blush. Should their clients wish to change their hair's texture, the specialists can add volume with perms or decrease frizz with smoothing Brazilian Blowouts.
