Intimo Skin Care’s Intimo facial aims to leave guests feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and as if they’d donned entirely new skin—skin that’s soft, firm, radiant, and smells like a just-born rainbow. First, one of Intimo’s skincare specialists will analyze your skin, identifying persistent issues and problem areas so that the treatment can be tailored to your specific needs. Next, an aesthetician will use top-notch products to deeply cleanse the face and neck, removing impurities to leave skin looking younger and healthier, like a baby doing calisthenics. After a round of intense hydration and facial massage, your face, neck, and décolletage will be even-toned and smooth enough to impersonate a marble bust.
Like a cup of coffee with cream swirling through it, Glam A Perfect 10 intoxicates the senses with taupe walls interrupted by milk-white accents. Against this backdrop, yet set apart by soft lighting, aesthetician Tiffany Oliveira performs her many services. She waxes away unwanted hair, brightens complexions and softens fine lines with custom facials, and glides diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands across skinscapes to whisk away dead, dull cells, boost collagen production, and reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Her chemical peels, on the other hand, use PCA Skin products and come with a take-home care kit to help aid the healing process. Elsewhere in the salon, hairstylists cut overgrown locks and nail technicians paint fingertips with chip-resistant CND Shellac polish to complete a makeover or change patrons’ appearances to no longer resemble their “Wanted” poster.
Salon owner and stylist "Downtown" Laura Brown and her talented staff pamper guests from follicle to foot in a fun, inviting atmosphere in the heart of downtown Modesto. The salon's certified scissor wielders take their time to listen to their client's hairy desires and craft personalized cuts and colors. Prices for a cut start at $45 but vary depending on hair length, thickness, and stubbornness. The salon also offers all-over color ($55+), highlights ($65+), and tri weaves ($95+), although Starlite makeovers remain subject to the availability of rainbow-vapor dye. Get your priorities crooked with a perm ($65+), or drench thirsty tendrils with a deep-conditioning treatment ($30+). For a special night out on the town, ask the ladies at Valin for a blow-dry and style ($30+) with a makeup application ($35+). Though there is no such thing as a perfect shape in nature, brides and prom-goers can have hair sculpted into a sphere that's been calculated by multiplying pi by the cube of the radius then multiplying again by four and dividing by three.
