With a steady hand and special adhesive, Janina breathes new life into clients? eyelashes. She applies special flare eyelash extensions to existing lashes, bulking up the eyeline for everyday wear or for special occasions. The extensions stay in place for up to two weeks, and refill appointments can lengthen the lifespan.
Gia, aesthetician and owner of Glo from Head 2 Toe, has been featured on Good Day Sacramento and heads up a team of beauty pros devoted to skincare treatments that leave birthday suits radiant from head to toe. Services offered include waxing, facials, and Norvell spray tanning for UV-free bronzing. Gia also has a passion for natural and homeopathic skincare, which includes hair removal by way of sugaring and herbal steam treatments for private parts.
Though threading primarily deals with hair removal, the real focus of the service is the skin. Many depilation methods extract unwanted strands, but leave skin irritated and subject to wrinkle-producing tugs and yanks. Threading combats these unwanted effects with a 100% cotton thread that loops and uproots unwanted hair, eliminating the need for chemicals that can cause breakouts and require the placement of hazard stickers on faces. Beauty By Thread?s expert technicians wield strings with the utmost precision, creating sultry eyebrow arches and removing hair from upper lips, sideburns, or infringing hair lines.
Threading leaves brows expertly shaped for up to three weeks, and the staff also offer Lizette Mineral eyebrow-makeup kits, which combine 10 shades of water-resistant powders and six stencils that allow clients to maintain beautiful looks at home. Clients can also add an exotic touch to their look with the shop's showcase of ankle bracelets, bangles, and tiaras instead of filling out the endless paperwork required to adopt a pet tiger.
The experienced staff at Salon Jolie works toward beauty goals with permanent makeup, skincare products, and hair-styling services. Debi Walker, a licensed aesthetician certified in medical skin treatments, draws on more than 30 years in the beauty industry to artfully fill brows and line eyes and lips with permanent makeup. During the process, she uses prepackaged, sterilized needles and a Nouveau Contour Intelligent machine powered by an Intel microprocessor chip, which varies application speed and depth.
A slew of herbal and medical-strength facial peels and pore-cleansing treatments let patrons revive dull skin before photo shoots or auditions to become statues. The staff of stylists adds exciting accents to hair with multicolored highlights and lowlights, Framesi color, and feather extensions.
With its long pedicure benches and open floor space, Polished Nail Bar fits the breezy feel of a city park inside a nail salon. Even the names of its services recall a crisp breath of air: a Refresh mani-pedi includes a scrub, mask, and massage in addition to polish, and the Renew mani-pedi adds paraffin wax and a callus treatment to the package. The highly trained technicians pull from more than 70 OPI and CND colors to decorate nails, whether they're supervising the pedicure sinks or the marble counter of the manicure bar.
In addition to its nail-therapy space, the salon furnishes a private skincare room. Here, warm steam heralds targeted facials that address acne, dryness, and signs of aging. The Roseville location's menu includes facial peels such as a Power Pumpkin Resurfacer, which combats blemishes and wrinkles with enzymes and a jack-o'-lantern to wear on your head. The aestheticians also wax away unwanted body hair and lengthen eyelashes with extensions.
Long before she opened Spa Lux, Sara Bagley braved the demands of the retail world, never letting the long and hectic hours distract her smile and sincere appreciation for her customers? needs. A spark of curiosity led her to the Federico Beauty Institute, where her interests in skincare bloomed into passions as she soaked up training in facials, waxing, and microdermabrasion.
Though her career has since moved away from retail, Sara remains ever in tune with her customers' desires. Her cheery disposition and enthusiasm for skincare are equally embodied in Spa Lux, a chic salon and spa where she and her staff draw on their collective wisdom to dote upon complexions and brush away the nests of tattooed sparrows.
Sara's customer-first philosophy is nowhere more evident than in the spa?s roster of facials, each of which the aestheticians customize to meet the client's skin type. Image Skincare products lead the charge of antioxidants and skin brighteners, and Clarisonic?s Sonic Skin Cleansing System promotes healthy tones while reversing inverted dimples.
