Inspired by a blend of modern elegance and vintage beauty...The salon is hip, glamourous and sure to compliment the revitalized "Historic Folsom." I offer color & cuts, blow-outs, Keratin Straighteners, extensions, Bumble & Bumble products and more
Named for its location among the landmarks, art galleries, and shops in historic Folsom, District 605 offers guests contemporary cuts and styles in a boutique-style ambiance. The staff—which includes a senior stylist certified in L'Oréal Professional, Redken, and Rusk color lines; a corrective-color specialist; and a stylist trained at the Paul Mitchell school—stays ahead of the latest trends with continuing education. Their expertise in designing and coloring hair earned the salon nominations in the Best Hair Salon category of CityVoter's 2011 and 2012 KCRA 3 A-List. In addition to cuts and color, they perform smoothing treatments and extensions, as well as nail services and makeup. The team's airbrush tanning artists can ready skin for the beach and make it easier to sneak up on fellow museum-goers at a Bronze Age exhibit.
Michelle Timmer , haircut and color specialist at La Coupe Maison Salon, sculpts gorgeous manes inside a renovated 1940s boutique. While split ends lie on wooden floors, a shampoo room beckons unwashed locks to its location behind sheer sea foam green-hued drapes. Full-length mirrors reflect the beautification of heads undergoing salon services, which include coloring, keratin smoothing treatments by Coppola, and deep conditioning treatments by Redken to bolster follicular fitness.
The staff greets Dream Day Spa's visitors with a glass of sparkling mineral water and a smile—a mere prelude to the pampering that is to come in this oasis's treatment rooms. Massages send tension drifting up into the ether, and body wraps exfoliate and nourish the skin. The spa's overflowing bath provides a continuous flow of burbling water, keeping the body warm and immersed throughout the session, and the steam room opens the pores with piped-in eucalyptus scents.
Facials fight signs of aging, and chemical peels provide more dramatic results by stripping away the topmost layer of skin. This removes everything from sun damage to wrinkles to the stubborn body glitter left over from your prom.
A close-knit team of hair stylists, aestheticians, and nail technicians keeps abreast of the latest beauty techniques to craft tranquil spa and salon experiences. Massage and body treatments marry Eastern and Western techniques, and a line of 45- to 60-minute facials targets complexion concerns while preserving fleeting facial expressions with professional products from Dermalogica, PCA, and DermaQuest. The bustling salon shapes trendy hairstyles for men and women as well as glistening nails with OPI products at cushioned manicure stations and whirlpool pedicure chairs.
Aesthetician Kelly Merritt immerses herself in the world of beauty, levying her pool of knowledge to enhance her clients' look and feel with rejuvenating facials and carefully administered waxing sessions. Operating out of Echelon Salon, Kelly tends to all types of skin with specialized services that employ papaya-enzymatic exfoliations to minimize fine lines. She also crafts custom treatments for issues such as rosacea or the aftermath of permitting too many toddlers to doodle on one's eyelids.
The aestheticians and technicians at Skin 2 Envy adhere to an informal code that mandates a high level of care and artistry for every facial, massage, and anti-aging treatment they perform. For instance, the team takes up to two weeks to craft custom skin peels, treating issues ranging from redness to wrinkles to having too many fake moustaches on one's cheek. In order to learn as much as possible about such concerns, aestheticians and massage therapists consult with each client prior to each session.
