In 2011, Jennifer Thomas and Pam Dawson decided to combine their styling skills and opened their boutique-inspired salon: Thomas Dawson & Co. The salon's team specializes in precision haircuts, but the stylists also offer color and texturizing treatments using professional-grade haircare products, including Goldwell, Redken, and Kemon. Additionally, an onsite nail technician pampers fingers and toes with mani-pedis that can incorporate indulgent touches such as soothing aromatherapy oils.
Ornate candlesticks, framed mirrors, fringed lampshades, and detailed furniture bestow Shear Madness Salon, Tanning, & Day Spa with a Victorian look that conveys decadence. But the nostalgia only goes so far as the decor, as the spa's staff beautifies its clients with modern techniques and products. Mystic spray-tan booths deliver glows within seconds, and Beach Wave perms and keratin treatments change the texture of tresses.
After witnessing a lack of personalized service in the spa industry, a trio of passionate entrepreneurs formed Lauthr Salon with the vision of individualized service and unparalleled attentiveness for every customer. The doting staff offers each client a complimentary beverage before wielding high-end beauty products from Bumble&Bumble, CHI Enviro, and YonKa during transformative facials, waxes, and hair services. This attention to quality and client comfort helped win the salon awards as Santa Rosa's Best Brazilian Wax and Best Nail Salon in 2009 from Citysearch. When they're not busy writing acceptance speeches, the beauty experts also lend their skills to brides- and bombshells-to-be with wedding- and boudoir-photography packages.:m]]

When she became a licensed aesthetician more than eight years ago, Monica Lucero already had a steady client: herself. Having suffered from acne as a teenager, she'd started learning about skincare in an effort to clear her own skin. Monica started to channel her own experience into a caring attitude toward her clients through Changes Salon in Walnut Creek and Le Jardin in Pleasant Hill, and today, at Cosi Bella Day Spa. In all of her services?which range from chemical peels to facial waxing?she strives to cultivate an atmosphere that, like a solid-gold beanbag chair, will leave people feeling both pampered and relaxed.
