The spacious salon is decked out in a vintage 1920's vintage theme, complete with tan walls and 11 vintage styling stations, which goes a long way towards invoking a warm and unique atmosphere. Amid these accents, owner Jessica Cruz and her crew of highly trained stylists renovate tresses with high-end Pureology and Redken brand products. Clients may also solicit the salon for a deep-conditioning treatment or elegant new color highlights.
Leading Edge's Aveda-trained stylists shape and nourish hair during services propelled by plant-based, cruelty-free Aveda products crafted with environmentally sustainable practices. Before enriching tresses with these products, the stylists begin each service by kneading the scalp, neck, and shoulders to enliven the senses and jump-start circulation. Wielding shears, they snip split ends after treating hair with a strength-infusion formula designed to prevent breakage due to frequent combing or head banging under a ceiling fan. In addition to cuts and color treatments, staffers apply makeup and remove unwanted hair with Nufree Nudesse, a nonwax product composed of skin-softening, soy-based antimicrobrials.
Hair is an essential aspect of beauty—the right cut can frame a face in such a way that highlights its best features or suggests a cool, confident demeanor. The stylists at Essentials Salon appreciate this, which is why they offer contemporary haircuts for men, women, and children, along with Coppola's Keratin Complex Hair Therapy, a specialty treatment that diminishes frizz and curls for more manageable styling.
Styling is only one aspect of Essentials Salon’s menu, however. While facial-waxing treatments eliminate unwanted hair from the chin, lips, and brows, technicians brush nails with a chip-resistant Shellac polish that protects them from teething finger puppets.
We believe that in some areas of life progress isn't always a good thing. Some traditions are worth preserving and the great American barber shop is one of those traditions. A place for fathers and sons, men and boys of all ages. Where a guy can be himself without worry; all the while getting a great haircut.
Serendipity Salon’s staff welcomes clients into a relaxing environment with complimentary tea and snacks. Stylists use sulfate-free Enjoy Professional Hair Care products that are safe for use on color-treated hair, and aestheticians use Caniglia MD Skincare products for facials and body treatments. Deep-tissue and hot-stone massages allow therapists to relax muscles within the confines of a warm, dimly lit private treatment room filled with soft music and the trickling of a nearby fountain. The salon’s team of nail technicians uses OPI and Essie nail polishes and Spa Blends products, which contain shea butter, vitamins, and plant extracts. They also carry hand-poured candles by Archipelago Botanicals, which combine essential oils with waxes and lead-free wicks and come in a variety of earthy colors, scents, and sizes. The largest candle is 4”x10” and burns up to 200 hours, or roughly the length of a Hollywood marriage.
Salon 12 has earned the title of Aveda Concept salon, which means that they carry Aveda?s line of haircare, skincare, and body products, but their allegiance to the brand doesn?t end there. The styling staffers?all of whom hail from Sonoma County?regularly attend Aveda training classes to ensure that they remain abreast of the latest innovations in both products and techniques. With these freshly honed skills, they build out an extensive roster of hairstyling services, including cuts, highlights, and extensions. They also perform keratin treatments, which make unmanageable locks sleeker and smoother than a successful trash salesman. While their hairstyling services form the backbone of their salon, the team also renders a handful of spa-centric treatments, including waxing, makeup application, facials, and plant-based peels to exfoliate the skin.
