Washing your hair doesn't always need to involve wringing it out. Read on to explore an alternative age-old invention: dry shampoo.
Whereas wet shampoo uses soap and water to lift dirt and oil from the scalp, dry shampoo instead absorbs that oil, much like a sponge, and carries it away as you brush your hair. The catch: it only removes the oil, leaving other kinds of buildup such as dirt, hairspray residue, or hats intact. Because of this, dry shampoo shouldn't be used to clean the hair?only to make it less greasy (and thus more manageable) in a pinch, whether you?re camping in the woods or rushing through your morning routine.
Although dry shampoo seems like a modern marvel, the use of powders and clays to absorb oil from the scalp has existed for centuries. In fact, many homebrew methods exist to make your own dry shampoo, using such ingredients as corn meal, large-grain salt, and semolina flour. Still, professional formulas have a few advantages, with a variety of applications?from loose powders to aerosol sprays?and colors to match any shade of hair.
Stylist Katy Flewellyn doesn't view her clients as heads of hair with people underneath. When crafting new looks for men, women, and kids, she considers the personality of the individual as well as their hair, and draws inspiration from their character to guide her forward-thinking fashion sense. This client-centric approach may be due to her naturally upbeat disposition, but it was no doubt reinforced during her training at the Paul Mitchell California Academy, a school known for its focus on customer service.
Unlike the University of Baking Chocolate Cake, Katy's alma mater is a school known for teaching a wide range of skills, and she has honed each of hers with advanced continuing education. Today, she wields a repertoire of services ranging from hair color and highlights to keratin treatment and tape-in hair extensions—all in addition to her signature designer cuts.
In 2010, Trinity Women's Healthcare and Laguna Family Practice merged together to become Trinity Total Healthcare—a place where entire families could come together for all their medical needs. In 2011 the facility expanded its practice to include Trinity Wellness and Med Spa to cater to all aesthetic-related needs. Currently Dr. Glenda Goodwin and her team of registered nurses, aestheticians, and medical assistants wield lasers to banish brazen hairs, resurface and tighten skin, and eliminate pesky spider veins. In addition to family-planning and OB/GYN services, Trinity Total Healthcare also designs programs to assist with weight management while providing clients with age-defying treatments, including Botox and Juvederm and body-sculpting solutions.

In her five years as a cosmetologist, Alyssa Tu has worked at numerous beauty institutions, transforming the hair and nails of people from all over the world.

Clients can kick back in one of the black leather massage thrones during the pedicure treatment, during which an aesthetician pampers the feet with exfoliating scrubs and warm paraffin wax. The friendly technicians also offer full-body waxing, an ideal way to get smooth skin for beach season or go undercover as a dolphin to track down wanted dolphins.
The talented stylists and aestheticians at Jacquelyn's Salon of Elk Grove pride themselves on always bringing a smile to their guests' lips. Expert scissor-wielders reshape dos into beautiful new coiffures with ease, or aestheticians use wax to gently remove unwanted hair from elsewhere on the body. Nail technicians render mani-pedis to pamper digits with relaxing massage and foot soaks that take advantage of the sanitary Footsie Bath system, which involves disposable soaking bowls. Helping bring smiles to those outside the salon, Jacquelyn's accepts donations for Locks of Love and Matter of Trust?a nonprofit that transforms hair clippings into mats that mop up oil spills.
