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]]
A calming oasis a few miles off Petaluma Boulevard on Bodega Avenue, Tammy's Beauty Salon cocoons visitors in a relaxing environment for all kinds of body pampering. Contained in one of Petaluma's historical shingle houses from the 1920s, Tammy's provides a touch of vintage charm to their modern treatments. At Tammy's, a friendly and skilled staff waits perched to get every customer's digit cap shined and polished; manicures start at $15 and pedicures for $25. Facials are $60, primed to deforest clogged pores, while haircuts start at $16, ready to prune forests that need keeping. Spa goers with miniature versions of themselves in tow don't need to worry about finding a babysitter, as a separate play area for kids filled with toys and games is readily available. When leaving, doff a hat with a polished hand to Old Nacho, the neighboring horse, and rest assured that the twinkle in his equine eyes is a compliment to a newly gleaming and stress-free visage.
A San Francisco–transplant, Michael Ramos is no stranger to style. And it's through his trendy glasses that he envisions the most flattering looks for others—specifically, men. From within Muse Hairdressing, an Aveda salon, the trained barber educates clients about their hair and helps them uncover new ways to display it, whether it be through a vintage cut or closely cropped clipper fade. He also takes years off of manes through gray blending, using a product that visibly reduces the amount of gray hairs.
