Waxing is among the most economical of non-permanent hair-removal treatments, allowing you to stay smooth but still compete in a playoff legbeard competition when the need arises. Reshape or separate Siamese brows ($15) or clear your upper lip and chin ($10 each) to clear a smooth surface for better novelty-moustache adhesion. Or just skip the specifics and get a full face of water-wicking skin. Migrate away from the mug and take care of overly insulated arms ($35) or a pair of leggy walking arms ($70). Prepare for beach season with a Brazilian ($45+) or its front-sided cousin, the stomach wax ($15+).
Since 2002, aesthetician Lori Ivey has helped clients reach their full beauty potential through skin treatments, massage, and nutrition and wellness advice. She bolsters this whole-body approach by using organic Sjolie and Rhonda Allison products during skincare services, such as sunless tanning and her specialty facials. From within her private room at Selah Day Spa & Salon, she also helps clients ward off signs of aging with advanced LED treatments, which are designed to stimulate collagen production. As a trained certified massage therapist, Lori can ease tension from the muscles and mind with customized massages that incorporate traditional Swedish and deep-tissue techniques.
As part of the salon team at Selah—which comes from the Hebrew word for "pause"—Corinna Rose performs an extensive selection of salon treatments supported by research on the most current styles and techniques. She specializes in cuts and color, and can adjust hair hues with all-over color gloss or meticulously placed highlights. There are also texturizing treatments, such as body waves and keratin infusions, as well as weave and extension applications that are more en vogue than a powdered wig or a salted cornrow.
Between the pristine cream-colored walls of Minx Salon & Spa, stylist Lilja Birtcil works her magic on overgrown hair. She specializes in men's cuts, complementing flattering styles with relaxing massages and hot-towel treatments that whisk away work-related tension or nervous energy caused from interacting with a parking meter. Elsewhere in the elegant salon, which is situated inside a converted home, stylists tend to hair and skin with relaxing spa services.
Though she started out playing “beauty shop” with her grandmothers, Courtney Phillips knew she had real talent when her family members kept requesting that she “play” with their hair too. Their confidence in her styling skills inspired her to attend beauty college and continually build up her talent with Paul Mitchell, Redken, and Vidal Sassoon classes. In 2006, Courtney oversaw renovations on Rocklin's "old church" building, which now houses San Francisco Street Salon & Spa—the realization of her childhood dreams.
Now, by the light of a glimmering chandelier, Courtney and her team of fellow stylists renovate hairstyles with Unite Eurotherapy and Aquage products. The spa's nail technician tends to digits with aloe scrubs, marine foot masks, and OPI's durable Axxium Gel, which can withstand rough-and-tumble games of patty-cake.
