"I want to make this world beautiful, inside and out," says Courtney Hurley, owner of Ravished Beauties. She strives toward this goal armed with lipsticks, blushes, and eyelash extensions, primping brides-to-be, models, and the doppelgangers that live inside mirrors. At Ravished Beauties, she teaches aspiring makeup artists the tricks of the trade and oversees a team of stylists and aestheticians who prettify clients hair and nails in addition to their skin, grooming guests with individual salon services as well as pampering packages.
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.
As part of the salon team at Selah—which comes from the Hebrew word for "pause"—Corinna Rose performs an extensive selection of salon treatments supported by research on the most current styles and techniques. She specializes in cuts and color, and can adjust hair hues with all-over color gloss or meticulously placed highlights. There are also texturizing treatments, such as body waves and keratin infusions, as well as weave and extension applications that are more en vogue than a powdered wig or a salted cornrow.
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.
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.
