Earth tones, wood fixtures, and vintage furniture. Shear Impressions is more like a quaint home than a typical salon and spa. That's due to the aesthetic decisions of Veronica Vallejo, who opened the doors to the cozy getaway in 1999. A licensed cosmetologist, her 27 years of experience in skincare allow her to understand what clients want out of a visit: pampering, personal attention, and up-to-date fashion expertise. She leads her team of stylists and aestheticians by regularly attending workshops, which keep her abreast of current styles, techniques, and products. Sharing her knowledge, she and her team style hair using products such as Kenra and Paul Mitchell and keep skin youthful and radiant by employing facials and peels. They also enhance natural beauty with waxing, makeup application, and mani-pedis.
White Stone Day Spa is a shimmering oasis amid the stresses of daily life, giving clients a brief respite from the outside world with a full complement of spa and salon services. The day spa continues to evolve its relaxing environment by embracing modern advancements in cosmetic products and technology. Human touch massage chairs transform the most straightforward mani-pedis into truly luxuriant experiences, and those chairs coexist happily with White Stone's human massage therapists, who relieve muscular aches with combinations of Swedish and deep-tissue techniques. During facials, aestheticians pamper clients and their ventriloquist dummies with glo minerals and glo therapeutics skincare products. White Stone Day Spa also stocks diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands and encourages visitors to schedule a detoxifying session in its infrared sauna.
No matter the age, gender, or follicle count of their clients, the professionals at Premier Cuts treat them to stylish services in a comfortable setting. They tend to adults with cuts, facial waxings, and thoughtful add-ons such as hot towels, and can style your hair for photo-shoots or special occasions. Children, meanwhile, receive haircuts in airplane styling chairs, where they can pretend to be pilots or watch their favorite cartoons. All treatments are performed with professional products.
The licensed stylists and estheticians at Synergy Salon and Spa aren’t satisfied with simply bringing out the best in every client’s looks; they also task themselves with creating the most relaxing experience possible along the way. As a result, their soothing, upscale hair and beauty sanctuary combines salon standbys such as haircuts, color services, waxing, and eyelash extensions with spa treatments such as facials, massages, and body wraps.
At Kay's Esthetics, premium GloTheraputics skin care products work to clear up and replenish epidermises during facials, and hard wax expunges unwanted hairs from the brows, lips, and chin for a smoother, more refined appearance. Kay's Esthetics also offers high performance facials that rope in advanced serums and additives, as well as French bikini and strip waxing services.
When Martha Millan says, "Beauty shouldn't hurt," she's not peddling a slogan—her first job in the beauty industry literally caused her pain. Working at an upscale salon, her exposure to common hair and makeup products triggered hives and headaches. While searching for more natural goods for personal use, her research revealed unsettling truths about many industry product lines that often use irritating perfumes to mask the underlying odors of harsh chemicals. Feeling that everyone should have the opportunity to look beautiful without fear of harming health, she bought a salon and transformed it into Salon O Day Spa.
Amid Salon O Day's industrial decor, Millan and her team of stylists, aestheticians, and a massage therapist use products so natural that some are even edible, though Millan imagines the taste would leave something to be desired: barbecue sauce. Among the array of certified-organic, not-tested-on-animals, gluten- and chemical-free products, Millan's favorites include Osmosis Pur Medical Skincare, developed by an American physician who advocates against overexfoliation. For hair, stylists use products from lines including Surface Hair and Organic Color Systems, and during nail services, technicians use natural products from SpaRitual in tandem with scrubs made in-house from ingredients bought at a local co-op.
