Pilar Chavez has long believed that feeling good about one's appearance is a spiritually uplifting experience. So in 1984, beneath the swaying palms of Farmersville, California, Pilar opened an eponymous salon that fosters joy through beauty. Amid teal walls and fully stocked product displays, Pilar and her styling team transform bland hairdos into flattering coifs with multidimensional color. Additionally, they spiff up nails with mani-pedis, remove body hair with wax, and simulate natural tans with airbrush bronzers or paintbrushes and chocolate syrup.
Shayna at Beauty & Body knows how difficult it can be to stay in shape. Struggling with weight gain for years, she finally achieved her fitness goals through discipline and persistence. At Beauty & Body, she uses her own life experiences to help others stay in shape through customized personal training and nutrition regimens. As a licensed cosmetologist, she also offers salon services such as haircuts, highlights, and makeup.
It?s all about the patterns. Using a tiny brush, licensed nail technician Valerie paints animal prints, hearts, polka dots, or flowers on clients' nail canvases. She repeats each pattern 10 times?enough to cover the nails on both hands. Aside from creating eye-popping artwork, Valerie dishes out classic manicures, finished off with a traditional nail-polish hue in soft pink or camouflage.
At Sandra Legaspi One Stop Shop, a salon located within Bronze and Beauty, clients can escape the worries of the world and focus on feeling good, be it for a whole day or just an hour. Cosmetologist Sandra Legaspi helps visitors look and feel their best, decorating nails with gel polish and sculpting acrylic rock-star nails embellished with gemstones or golden spikes. She also creates chic, flattering hairstyles and smoothes skin with facial waxing.
Licensed cosmetologist Sheri Stevenson knows the importance of total-body beauty, which is why her services include nailcare, hairstyling, and facial waxing. During pedicures, she uses the OPI system to trim, shape, and polish nails and exfoliate hands and feet before moisturizing the skin with massage strokes rather than a fire hose. She also cuts, colors, and styles strands and makes liberal use of warm wax to remove unwanted facial hair.
Aestheticians, massage therapists, and stylists all populate Eclectic Chic Salon, which explains the variety of services available there. Sometimes staffers rejuvenate skin with custom facials, and other times they perform personalized massages that not only relax muscles but also increase circulation, reduce chronic pain, and free trapped sighs of relief. In the salon area, Brazilian blowouts smooth and straighten frizzy strands.
