The trained technicians at Absolute Beauty revitalize facescapes with artfully applied facial procedures utilizing sophisticated technologies. Microcurrent facials fight off fine lines with safe electrical impulses, tapping out orders to muscles in Morse code to firm up and increase the production of collagen, temporarily tightening the face after one treatment and building muscle memory after several more. Ultrasound facials shiver off dead cells with an exfoliating high-tech hum, ultimately opening up skin for rejuvenating hydration and moisturizing. In addition to treating faces to space-age pampering, Absolute Beauty supplements epidermal diets with vitamin C enzyme applications in every treatment.
When veteran stylist Ella set out to make a “creative alternative to the same old salon humdrum,” she wasn't just talking about innovative hairstyles and gossipy patter. In Ella's Gloss Salon, artwork made by community artists adds a touch of local inspiration to the space’s chic, slate-gray walls. Amid the paintings, Ella and her team call upon their continuous education to concoct on-trend cuts, and the stylists imbue locks with even color or dimension-bending highlights. Her team includes master colorist and stylist Danielle Jennings, who has 11 years of experience, including eight with a master stylist, and is known for her attention to detail and ability to listen to a clients needs. While they focus on hair services, the Gloss Salon also lifts unwanted fuzz with European wax and offers a wide variety of facials, and they try to improve the community by donating 10% of all product sales to local nonprofits and charities.
With decades of combined experience, the stylists of Allure Salon use know-how gained at Redken, Paul Mitchell, and Vidal Sassoon academies when performing on-trend haircuts and color services. Clients sit back in black leather chairs in this spacious, mirror-lined salon, having strands tended to by hair artists who understand how uplifting a great haircut can be. For special occasions, the savvy hair tenders can concoct an intricate up-do or an intriguing basket weave.
DND Hair Studio's professionals perform a variety of beauty-industry services within a contemporary salon aglow with warm, golden hues that emanate from rows of blossoming lamps overhead. Haircuts for women, men, and children leave tresses trimmed and styled, and hair-coloring treatments dress heads in rich hues or fifth dimensions. Along with hair services, the salon offers massage, facial, and waxing sessions.
Minx Salon and Spa’s owner, Maddison Bell, stockpiles nine years of experience as a stylist and colorist and shares that knowledge through her work as an artistic educator for Matrix Professional haircare. Maddison and her talented, professional team perfect hair, massage, skincare, and nail services within the comforts of a charming home. The two-story building was made in the early 1900s in the American Craftsman style, an architectural movement that lost steam in the '30s after the Great Depression triggered the Hooverville fad. The modern furnishings and contemporary interior décor follow a sleek black-and-white color scheme with elegant chandeliers hanging over hairstyling stations, luxurious pedicure chairs, and six spa-treatment rooms.
Though she started out playing “beauty shop” with her grandmothers, Courtney Phillips knew she had real talent when her family members kept requesting that she “play” with their hair too. Their confidence in her styling skills inspired her to attend beauty college and continually build up her talent with Paul Mitchell, Redken, and Vidal Sassoon classes. In 2006, Courtney oversaw renovations on Rocklin's "old church" building, which now houses San Francisco Street Salon & Spa—the realization of her childhood dreams.
Now, by the light of a glimmering chandelier, Courtney and her team of fellow stylists renovate hairstyles with Unite Eurotherapy and Aquage products. The spa's nail technician tends to digits with aloe scrubs, marine foot masks, and OPI's durable Axxium Gel, which can withstand rough-and-tumble games of patty-cake.
