From styling celebrity hair to revitalizing complexions with relaxing facials, the team at Willo Aveda, an Aveda concept salon, aims to fill local mirrors with visions of beauty. Stylists of five different experience levels wash and rinse hair before breathing new life into languishing strands with a tailored cut and blow-dry. Alternatively, hair artisans can deploy Aveda's 97%?99% naturally derived formulas to refresh hair with a single-process color or nourish locks with conditioning plant oils that leave hair shinier than a freshly licked ring pop. The stylists at Willo Aveda also stay engaged with their clients through an active blog that celebrates lauded hair happenings. Most recently, the business collaborated with other Aveda salons to help set a Guinness World Record for the most money raised for charity in 24 hours through haircuts alone.
Hair Soiree's stylists work to keep clients' manes healthy. That's why, along with cuts and styles, they offer hair treatments that restore strength, flexibility, and shine. In addition, they help clients keep tresses in good shape long after they leave the salon chair by recommending haircare regimens to match individuals' needs.
Genna Peterson takes the helm of her own salon chair inside Donna Mae, which itself is inside Sola Studios. Within her cozy nook, she crafts sleek haircuts by detaching split ends and adding any desired layers. She also colors hair to best complement your skin tone and irons out frizz with Brazilian blowouts.
Atiya is a licensed skincare specialist who helps her clients custom tailor their skin suits with facials, waxing, and makeup services. She also adds dramatic flutter to upper lids with eyelash extensions and caters to groups with party appointments.
Fueled by her love for style and eye for decorating, Daena Biondi swiftly transitioned from her role as a salon receptionist to her role as the woman in charge. Today, she helms Hair Phases International—a salon-spa meets clothing boutique—overseeeing two dozen talented hairstylists, nail technicians, and skin specialists at two locations. Both the Sacramento and Fontana spaces offer a variety of hair and skincare services, including cut and color treatments, body waxing, facial threading, and facials infused with mandarin orange or pumpkin enzymes. Like most salons, Hair Phases International offers makeup applications for those who are tired of applying mascara during their morning segue commute. And unlike most salons, Biondi’s styling haven also features an on-site boutique stocked with trendy women’s and men’s clothing, including dresses, shirts, and jeans.
To Dana Conrado, skincare is a universal language. Her nearly two-decades-long career has encompassed international training in both London and Canada, as well as a stint spent doing freelance make-up for a Japanese company. Along the way, she picked up certifications in multiple services—acne and rosacea treatments, microdermabrasion, and RejuvaLight therapy, to name a few—and established rapport with many dermatologists and plastic surgeons while undergoing training in medical-grade skincare and chemical peels.
Upon opening Cezanne Skin Group in 1996, she became one of the first on the West Coast to offer sugaring, a kind of hair removal that uses natural and organic ingredients in place of hot wax strips or repurposed bumper stickers. Together with aesthetician Amanda Ward, Dana transforms appearances and enhances relaxation through massage services, body wraps, and facials, often blending in high-quality restoratives from brands such as Dermalogica and Pevonia Botanica.
