Eva has been honing her skills as an aesthetician since 1991. In her 20-plus years of experience, she's added a wide array of treatments to her repertoire, helping her keep skin healthy and glowing. She incorporates ingredients such as pumpkin enzymes and glycolic acid in her chemical peels, which remove dead skin to balance complexions. Acne treatments bid farewell to blemishes, while hydrating treatments refresh dry, rough skin. Eva's Touch also emphasizes relaxation and stress-relief through massages, reflexology, and herbal wraps. Clients can also opt for packages, which bundle services into reinvigorating spa days.
No hair color is too traditional or too adventurous for stylist Crystal. She transforms manes into golden curls with nothing more than a bowl of hair dye and a curling iron. Ombre locks fade from dark brown to red to blonde. And her show-stopping creations include bright blue strands or hair that changes color in the sunlight.
The professional hair humanitarians at Gavora Studio nurse famished follicles back to health via nourishing products and revitalizing scissor treatments. When tending to forehead drapery, the experienced stylists shear away split ends and useless inches, creating elegant contours that flatter facial features while maintaining functionality (up to a $38 value). The deep-conditioning treatment cures crispy coiffures of their semblance to potato chips (a $15 value), while blow-dry styling adds height and volume to hair without using a forklift or spork full of glue (a $10 value). Step inside Gavora Studio's voguish cocoon of high ceilings, warm hues, and pendulant lighting to have your mop top trimmed, moisture-treated, and molded into a head accessory that will simultaneously stop traffic and accelerate the speed at which rogue dollar bills slip from your smooth strands and into your pocket.
Ammonia-free and certified organic. If a hair product doesn't meet both of these qualifications, you're not likely to find it at Organic Hair by Emily. Using Angle's Salon in Manteca as her home base, Emily has made a name for herself by using the best products available to update looks with cuts, highlights, and eye-catching color. She can even create special styles for weddings and proms, such as updos shaped like stretch limousines.
Mimosa Spa Salon takes its name from the mimosa flower, whose beautiful pink and violet blooms signify the arrival of spring. Similarly, the salon and spa incorporates nature into much more than its name. Expert stylists such as Alyshia Brown use high-quality products during haircuts and colors. Meanwhile, spa staffers wax away unwanted hair, massage tense muscles, and trim nails on the hands and feet.
