Creations Salon owner Lynnell Darby leads a staff of experienced stylists in cutting, coloring, and coiffing tresses with acclaimed salon products that include Paul Mitchell and Pureology. Clients kick back and savor a complimentary beverage as their hair basks in deep hydration alongside skin-flattering color or dimension-boosting highlights before the strand sculpting begins. Unlike the copycat styles and unyielding salad bowls used in a typical salon, Creations' stylists approach each head of tresses as a unique canvas, taking both fashion trends and individual face shape into account to forge a one-of-a-kind style.
At Mena & Co. Salon, owner Filomena Nault draws on two decades of experience in the beauty industry and specialized training in keratin, Difiaba color, and haircuts to beautify and nourish client's tresses. In addition to embellishing dos with expert coloring and natural hair extensions, salon and spa professionals also cleanse complexions with Aveda facials.
The relaxation experts at Studio 12 Urban Day Spa pamper their clients from head to toe. Their services include cleansing facials, exfoliating foot massages, moisturizing body polishes, and swift facial waxes. They incorporate organic products from brands such as Dawn Lorraine into their soothing treatments and offer express services for those in a rush or on the lam.
Joseph’s Hair Designs ensures its stylists stay au courant with the latest techniques for crafting chic new looks to flatter all kinds of faces. Attentive stylist Ashlee begins with a consultation to assess her clients' most fondly held hairstyle wishes before cleansing tresses and artfully shaping overgrown locks into keratin-based masterpieces ($18 for men; $30 for women). Joseph’s mane tamers employ Enzo Bonaffini's Bloom Shear, an exclusive three-bladed scissor that gives tresses a fashionable straight-razor sheared look while decreasing time spent on blowouts and otherwise forcing hair to say uncle. Clients may schedule any additional treatments, including color, weave, or blow-dry services, at a 15% discount, ensuring hair looks its best for your world-record attempt at longest french-braiding conga line.
At The Nail Place's digit masters retouch nails in private suites, applying long-lasting manicure and pedicure treatments over the course of two hours. During the no-chip manicure, gel and vibrant polish is lamp-baked into a finger ornament that is both vivid and long lasting, much like the memory of seeing an elderly professor eat an entire football. Neither the cruel slaps of closing doors nor the scratches of glancing blowdarts will dent or scratch the no-chip manicure once applied. After feet receive a full cuticle and nail pruning, they can luxuriate with a soothing, thorough sole massage and clean themselves with the nail buffer and file provided to all clients.
Voted Favorite Tanning Salon by the Modesto Bee readers for the past four years, Bronze Body Tanning Salon & Spa showers its glow-seeking clientele with the latest in sun-less shading technology. For a more permanent pigment, one month of tanning atop the salon's regular beds darkens the dermis with roughly 100% more efficiency than a copper slip-n-slide. Each tan-getting tryst lasts 23 minutes, but in-booth accouterments––including cooling fans, radios, and signing palm trees––help pass the time.
