Waxing in La Riviera

Nava's Hair Studio's Facebook page reads like a beauty magazine, offering tips on such things as how to prevent hair from frizzing in the summer (keep hair properly hydrated so it won't absorb moisture in the air and swell) and how to build volume at the crown while keeping the rest of the hair sleek (apply mousse roots to ends, put hair in a ponytail on the top of your head, release when dry). The page is so informative because Nava's head stylist and owner, Ofelia, has been working in the industry for more than 20 years. Plus, she constantly travels the country seeking advanced knowledge on such things as how to cut hair based on facial structure and how to hide a third eye with dramatic bangs.

At her studio, Ofelia and her team of stylists keep locks looking spiffy with face-flattering cuts, Brazilian blowouts, and highlights and lowlights. They also beautify clients with waxing services and lash and brow tints.

After 16 years in the beauty industry, cosmetologist and aesthetician Manisha Hotpeti understands how to tailor a skincare service to meet the needs of many different skin types. As an owner of Desi Threading & More, she is able to offer a menu of services that include diverse treatments such as threading, acupressure, and reflexology. The beauty spot has been serving downtown Sacramento for the past three years and has recently opened a second location in Folsom. When Manisha isn't precisely threading eyebrows with strands of cotton thread to remove unwanted hairs, she can shape brows with wax and enhance eyes with lash extensions. Manisha's facials and peels purge clogged pores and exfoliate visages, and her henna tattoos adorn hands and arms with swirling designs and scavenger-hunt clues.

Stylists also festoon strands with the latest flourishes such as keratin treatments and feather extensions. Additionally, hair gurus happily instruct clients in ways to re-create trend-savvy styles at home while furnishing tips for extending the look’s lifespan.
