As an Aveda Lifestyle Spa and Salon, Amenities Day Spa - Fig Garden upholds a policy of social and environmental responsibility, which manifests in the form of philanthropy for local charities and the use of eco-friendly products in the studio. Skincare treatments rely on botanical ingredients to cleanse pores and combat wrinkles, whereas body treatments come laden with green, natural elements such as seaweed, rosemary, or Caesar salad. In addition to these holistic offerings, the team here also helps clients reshape their silhouettes with noninvasive lipo-laser treatments. These target fat cells in localized areas such as the hips, waist, or thighs.
The staff at Waxing by Taline understands that not everyone has a lot of extra time for pampering themselves, which is why the salon's Brazilian waxes only take 15 minutes. A CIDESCO-trained aesthetician with more than 10 years of experience conducts the speedy session using Resin? by Hairaway, a special wax that decreases inflammation. As for visages, custom facials aim to treat excess oil and acne.
A stress-free oasis in the heart of downtown Turlock, Blown Away Salon & Spa offers a relaxing counterpoint to the bustling activity just outside its doors. Though long considered a gem by locals, the all-purpose salon and spa can also claim a few out-of-town fans: as recently as May 2013, Joan Rivers dropped in for a manicure and style before her standup show at the nearby Turlock Community Theatre.
In spite of its growing popularity, Blown Away maintains a serene, low-key atmosphere punctuated only by animated chatter and the clipping of shears. The salon?s styling services range from feather extensions to formaldehyde-free Bio Ionic KeraSmooth treatments, which leave strands sleek and straight for months to come. On the other side of the expansive studio, nail technicians highlight digits with vibrant colors, and aestheticians tend to skin with exfoliating chemical peels. A visit to the spa?s resident massage therapist completes the cycle of relaxation as deep-tissue massages work against the muscle grain with firm pressure, and sports massages break up knots of tension with well-placed fastballs and slap shots.
Aestheticians at Vitality Skin Care coax forth deep exhalations, drawing upon Epicurean Discovery's line of natural skincare products to tailor facials and body treatments to individual needs. Cosmetologists work amid racks of Glo Mineral makeup, jane iredale products, and paraffin wax for soothing hands and faking the royal seal on field-trip permission slips. Meanwhile, massage therapists call upon aromatherapy and various modalities to mend aching muscles and balance internal energies, and Infinity Sun airbrush-tan units slip silently across skin.
