Housed in an opulent stone mansion, Yvonne Rodriguez's soft-lit massage studio welcomes clients in with green and brown earth tones that set the mood before she begins her treatments. When she was still testing out a career in the field of massage, Yvonne developed a passion for treating clients, and whether granting chemotherapy patients a soothing touch or treating others for everyday pains and stressors, Yvonne works to strengthen mind-body connections in her work. Essential oils and hot towels warm stiff muscles and skin when necessary, adding to the overall warmth and relaxation of her strokes. The studio's decor encourages relaxation as well; a skylight beams in natural light to live tropical flowering plants, and light from flickering candles helps keeps each moment serene.
The team at Frumoasa Salon & Spa is small and focused. Four stylists, a massage therapist, and an aesthetician work together toward a single mission: to relax and beautify clients. To achieve this end, they treat everyone who walks into their spacious, chandelier-lit salon as an individual. Before hair stylists perform designer cuts, apply color, or texturize hair, they consult with clients, studying their facial shape and coloring. Similarly, these types of thorough consultations also precede other beauty treatments including waxing, aromatherapy massage, and c-estes facials. During treatments, the team pulls from a toolbox stocked with professional-grade product lines, including Eufora Hero, Keratin Complex, and Colure.
When it comes to beauty, Luxe Hair Lounge and Day Spa covers all of its bases with an expert for almost every aspect of the body?s appearance. The salon?s stylists, for example, revitalize scalps with precision haircuts and treatments that add volume and texture to wilting strands. Not to be outdone, the spa?s aestheticians smooth away wrinkles with beauty injections and oversee a tanning bed that imbues skin with shades of bronze. There?s a reason all of these services exist under one roof. Luxe?s one-stop beauty emporium saves clients time that would otherwise be spent running from salon to massage studio or tediously melting a wax candle over all of their hairy body parts.
More than a decade after creating her signature line of cosmetics, JanElizabeth cemented her commitment to facial beauty when she established The Perfect Eyebrow & Makeup Center in 2007. She leads her team with nearly 20 years of experience, which enables her to blend custom foundations to match clients' skin and determine the right shade to tint lashes and brows. Rather than follow an overarching philosophy of how eyebrows should look, JanElizabeth thickens, streamlines, and arches brows to enhance facial architecture or reflect the whims of the stock market. The team shares its cosmetics expertise during classes or through photos of its handiwork at weddings and professional shoots.
Like any good personal trainer, Get Fit Sacramento's staffers relentlessly pursue their clients’ fitness goals, but they don’t limit themselves to one-on-one sessions to do it. Instead, they supplement individual training with group fitness classes, Zumba, and R.I.P.P.E.D. workshops, all held within their fully equipped facility. They toss in even more benefits for members that work outside the gym, such as supplying an e-cookbook full of healthy recipes or teaching pet dogs to say “Feel the burn!” Inside the facility, students whip around jump ropes, use BOSU balls to deepen pushups, and grunt in time with the clangs of weight-training machines. Slate gray equipment punctuates the expanses of teal blue walls along with motivational posters picturing sweating, smiling exercisers being chased by a sleuth of bears.
The skincare professionals at La Dene Studio tackle blemishes and sagging skin with treatments that incorporate both natural ingredients and technology-based approaches. Depending on a client’s skin type and concerns, the experts might recommend a facial with botanic components such as seaweed, papaya enzymes, or vitamin C, or they might target sun damage with a glycolic-acid peel. Other intense treatments range from the deep exfoliation of microdermabrasion to microcurrent and ultrasonic facials, which both diminish fine lines. In addition, the studio’s aestheticians wax away the hair that collects on the body while wrestling with a bear during its shedding time.
