Ornate candlesticks, framed mirrors, fringed lampshades, and detailed furniture bestow Shear Madness Salon, Tanning, & Day Spa with a Victorian look that conveys decadence. But the nostalgia only goes so far as the decor, as the spa's staff beautifies its clients with modern techniques and products. Mystic spray-tan booths deliver glows within seconds, and Beach Wave perms and keratin treatments change the texture of tresses.
In a perfect world, it wouldn’t be difficult to find time for a massage or an aesthetician you trust. The team at Solano Wellness Spa have been listening to those needs from their clients for more than 10 years, all the while making their services an accessible part of self-care and winding down. With an accomplished staff of registered massage therapists and certified aestheticians, each treatment gets down to the clients’ specific goals, whether they seek to hydrate skin, diminish fine lines, wax brows, or soothe backs.
The historical building that once housed the Bank of Suisun is now home to Knotty Hair Salon. Floor-to-ceiling arched windows bathe the cream-hued walls and sleek wooden floors in ample light. The centerpiece of the salon is a row of towering black workstations flanked by salon chairs. It's where Terresa Borrego displays her vast skill set in the hair world with trendy cuts, color, extensions, and updos. She uses Wella and Kevin Murphy hair products to help her create new looks.
The steady-handed beauticians at Eyebrow Art meticulously neaten eyebrows, upper lips, and other areas of the face with an ancient hair-removal technique that reveals smooth, fuzz-free skin. At their seven salon locations, they roll twists of cotton thread quickly over clients’ skin to remove hair at the follicle––a safer method of hair removal than standing next to a sneezing dragon. Throughout the process, clients lean back in comfortable chairs as the staff gently escorts unwanted stubble from the premises.
Dr. Barbara Persons, a board-certified plastic surgeon, pares her experience as a surgeon with an artistic vision in all of her procedures. Her areas of specialty include both aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery, body contouring, facial rejuvenation, and helping new mothers to get back to 'pre-baby' weight.
The laser technicians at Central Valley Laser Center help slenderize patients with the Lipo-Light laser. During the headlining treatment, patients don light- and heat-emitting pads on problem areas. The laser prompts the fat cells to release their contents for later removal through the lymphatic system—a process that can be expedited through light exercise or speed walking away from the center’s pet grizzly bear. In addition to contouring physiques, the treatment can help diminish the appearance of cellulite.
