Select Local Merchants

The aestheticians at Madison Mohrr Skin Care specialize in spa treatments for women's faces and bodies. Though male patrons are welcome to attend in the company of a spouse or significant other, beauty specialists direct their skills toward administering facials, waxes, and homeopathic treatments to patrons with two X chromosomes or Scrabble pieces. The beauty specialists prove their dedication to creating a stress-free oasis by setting up each service with an appointment, which guarantees that each client receives the unhurried, personalized attention typically reserved for slow-motion tickle fights. Outside of her skincare business, Madison Mohrr - who recently celebrated 25 years of being cancer free - works with breast cancer awareness groups in Fresno.

Owner Carrie Weisgerber, a 17-year industry veteran, fosters a welcoming environment for all guests of the spalon. Upon entrance, awaiting customers can enjoy tranquilizing tunes and a complimentary refreshment. Once seated, facially inclined guests will soak up an anti-aging layering of carefully selected lotions and creams with the spa mini-facial ($55).

Those who opt for follicular waxing services will have their choice of many delicately delivered treatments. Sculpt some brows ($25), touch up nasal beauty ($25), or ensure a smooth surface for surefire deodorant adhesion with an underarm wax ($25). Upon departure, prepare to exude an aura of quiet confidence as you punch through one of the sidewalls, ready to flaunt a sauntering strut that only a runway model could appreciate.

To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend Human Rights" and "Protect The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, ?She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.?

Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness and social consciousness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to an EU-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the brand?s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.

Natural Beauty

Set up in Heart & Soul Wellness Studio, Natural Beauty's Sam Ulep strives to help her clients feel "beautiful no matter what." Open compacts of MAC and Urban Decay cosmetics fan out before her as she dips a contouring brush into a palate of 28 flesh-toned eye shadows and chooses one to accent her client's brow bone. Her nimble fingers paint eyelids in iridescent, sherbet-colored gradients so smooth they seem airbrushed on, but she can also blend refined looks subtle enough for day. That dexterity extends to the painstaking process of eyelash extensions, which she affixes one by one to give brides a more glamorous gaze, and also to facials, which she employs to clear complexions of imperfections and hardened cement.

At the Hungry Hair Salon, Tammie Riley and her team of stylists keep manes healthy and shiny with precision cuts and advanced coloring techniques. Originally opened in 1990 as a standalone salon, the business eventually grew to include a soothing spa space beneath it. Inside the spa's private treatment rooms, aestheticians restore waning visages with specialized services such as SkinCeuticals peels and anti-aging facials infused with hyaluronic acid and Omega ingredients. Injection specialists also plumps up visages with dermal fillers or introduce B-12 solution to clients, leaving them with more energy than a first grader who finally got the pony made of sugar she always wanted.
