The technicians at Thread & Sugar embrace a natural approach to beauty, whether they are practicing ancient Eastern hair-removal methods or hand-mixing organic facial ingredients right before the client's eyes. An organic salon located in the Central Valley, they use nail polishes free of DBP, formaldehyde, and toluene, and organic, herbal hair color products that are non-toxic. Even the cleaning products they use are eco-friendly and the space is equipped with an onsite purifier that keeps dust, allergens, and debris from invading the air.
Throughout the last decade, the trilingual beauty professionals at iNail Care & Spa have simultaneously broadened and honed their skills.

The spa’s aestheticians add expertise in skincare, whether that means softening signs of aging with facials or grooming brows with precision waxes. They also alleviate the physical signs of stress with leg massages, hot-stone treatments, and warm footbaths.

Arianna works inside Trésorle Salon and Spa alongside other hair, massage, and skincare specialists.
