Rozlyn, owner of De La Muse Salon and Spa, got her start in the ultra-trendy salons of San Francisco's Union Square. When the time came to start her own salon, she wanted to bring the bustling neighborhood’s feeling of fun, experimentation, and style to Folsom. So she lined up a deep bench of stylists (not to mention makeup artists, nail technicians, and massage therapists) in an elegantly appointed venue hung with lustrous metallic curtains.
Stylish as the surroundings are, Rozlyn strives to make every client feel at home. "Communication is key to a great outcome, and I love to chat," she says on the salon’s website. That focus on communication extends to client education: among the services at De La Muse is a one-on-one makeup lesson with the owner of makeup line Scene Cosmetics to help women figure out which products work for everyday use and which lipsticks taste the best.
At Adore, an Aveda Concept Salon, a talented group of master, senior, and junior stylists fulfill their mission of bringing the beauty out in every client with a combination of technique and vision. The team goes about this in a number of ways; for the hair, they offer Aveda re-texturizing system treatments on top of haircuts and coloring. Their color is up to 98% naturally derived from plant and flower essences, and completely customizable. To coax a radiant glow from the face without a police flashlight or clear bag full of lightning bugs, they present elemental nature and botanical skin resurfacing facials. Other services include botanical therapy hair treatments, mani-pedis, lash and brow tinting, and waxing.
Split ends meet their timely end at Tangled Hair Salon, where professional stylists craft looks that suit their clients’ complexions and personalities. Women, men, and children are all welcome at the casual salon; no matter who you are, you can rest assured that the stylists will use Paul Mitchell and Joico products to create a style that is uniquely yours. Along with simple cuts, they offer perms, straightening treatments, and coloring treatments that enhance hair with highlights or all-over color. The salon’s services don’t stop at the scalp. Other, more spa-oriented treatments include waxing, makeup applications, and formal styling for weddings.
Kelly Morse’s first client was a Barbie doll. From a young age, she knew she’d be a hairstylist, but she didn’t leave anything up to fate. After becoming a certified cosmologist she pursued further training from Sexy Hair, Matrix, Pravana, and Paul Mitchell. Kelly is also a certified Redken Master Specialist, which she uses to the benefit of her clients at To Dye For. Using the latest Redken treatments and products, Kelly and her team of stylists offer haircuts, coloring, and keratin treatments. They also offer feather extensions and formal styling for weddings to proms to after-hour parties for rowdy prom chaperones.
The year was 1999, and master barber Joe Grondin was nostalgic for a bygone institution. The barbershops of old were more than a place for a man to get his hair cut: they were a place to relax, share a conversation, and sneak a bite of the peppermint-flavored pole out front. But men's grooming establishments seemed to be a thing of the past—until Grondin founded his first Roosters in Lapeer, Michigan. The new-old trend caught on, and today, the throwback barbershops can be found coast-to-coast. Men can stop by for timeless services, from haircuts to full shaves to golf advice.
Aquafx Salon's 17 stylists, two nail techs, and two aestheticians beautify coifs and bodies alike inside a full-service salon.
