The specialists at Eyebrow Perfection don't try to juggle a multitude of spa treatments; instead, they focus on just one service: threading hair removal. With more than 20 years of experience, the team sweeps away unwanted facial fuzz with an ancient Eastern technique that uses pure cotton thread, omitting the need for harsh chemicals and waxes.

Ron Smith will never forget the day he signed the papers on his first salon?but not for the reason you'd think. His second son, Austin, was born on the same day. Children grow fast, but apparently successful businesses grow faster? to meet the demand of his clientele, Ron had to upgrade to a larger space while Austin was still in diapers. Today, Austin and Salon 860 West are 12 years old, but the space doesn't show its age. Lavender walls and modern leather sofas invite customers to relax as they seek out layers and multidimensional highlights. The salon also features the talents of aesthetician Tiffanie Chance, who specializes in waxing and results-oriented skincare. To that end, she treats facial issues ranging from fine lines, to acne, and rosacea, and works to make clients look younger than the Gerber baby's younger sister.

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.

In 1976, two UC Davis graduate students bought 20 acres of land in the highly arable Capay Valley. One of the students, Kathleen Barsotti, was working toward her master's degree in ecology and was determined to grow vegetables and fruits in an eco-friendly way: organically. The organic-food movement hadn't yet entered the public consciousness, and Kathleen worked overtime to convince restaurants, stores, and consumers of the taste-able merits of her process. Over time, given the possible health and environmental benefits of certified organic food, she succeeded. The farm sprouted to 300 acres to accommodate the increased demand. Today, a second generation runs the farm as well as a shop inside San Francisco's Ferry Building. Dubbed Farm Fresh To You, the store furnishes customers' bags or portable cornucopia horns with all sorts of soil-sprouted goods, including heirloom tomatoes, sweet peas, and fresh asparagus. The farm also teams up with fellow Yolo County and Pacific Northwest farms to deliver boxes of seasonal produce to area homes.
