A haircut shouldn't be considered a chore. It should be thought of as a re-inventive experience, an open opportunity for a new appearance, and a chance to lose the nickname of "Mr. Shaggy McHirsute." But most of all, a haircut should be relaxing. A proper dosage of pampering, but not too frilly, with just a touch of friendly chit-chat to go with the cut. At PhatHeads Barbershop, kids and adults can kick back as their coifs are carefully shaped by a crew of experienced barbers. That old-fashioned style rings truest with PhatHeads hot-towel shaves, which couple warm cream and a straight-razor shave to leave necks and cheeks smoother than a baby's bowling ball.
The stylists at Hair Fusion love a good makeover. They create fresh new looks with haircuts, highlights, lowlights, and makeup applications, making adjustments that match the style of each individual client. Their Keraluxe smoothing services take a cut and style to the next level by making tresses sleek and shiny. Staff can also transform locks with hair extensions and perms; even a simple bang trim can dramatically update a style.
The staff at Pro 31 Salon and Boutique transforms tresses, creating looks as sleek as the salon's black and red decor. Creative cuts and highlights in brilliant hues accent client's facial features. Stylists also experiment with manes' lengths and textures, styling strands with SexyHair products, crafting beachy waves with perms, and elongating locks with hair extensions.
From quick polish changes to luxurious spa mani-pedis, Rosa Duke offers an array of nailcare services. She artfully paints fingers and piggies with traditional or long-lasting gel polishes and adorns tips with resilient acrylics. Fills keep falsies looking brand-new as time goes by, and paraffin-wax dips make skin softer than a kitten wearing cashmere.
One of Bakersfield's largest day spas, Essentiels Spa et Beauté offers clients an array of services targeting the hair, skin, nails, and muscles. Turn your torso over to one of the spa's lead kneaders for a fully customized hour of integrative massage, which can incorporate hot stones, focus on particular regions of your body, or otherwise tailor itself to your wants, needs, and muscular event horizons. Those who mostly hold tension in their face can opt instead for a 60-minute European-style Essentiels signature facial, a multifaceted pamper party that leaves necks and shoulders rubbed, hands and feet coddled, and cranial facades soft, smooth, and glowing with the sort of radiance impossible to achieve through glow-stick earrings. Essentiels complements its satisfying services with the ambient assets of an urban-chic environment, giving guests an elegant escape from the frenetic pace and gauche mimes of everyday life.
Choose the pomegranate antioxidant, chocolate, or mint sugar-scrub treatment and a professional beauty maven will reward you with a crystal-scrub solution that gently exfoliates the top layer of skin across your entire body. The smooth-spanning treatment stimulates new skin-cell growth and improves tone and hydration. After your skin is left glowing like the thermal image of a stampeding elephant, it's soothed with hot towels and tender compliments. A licensed massage therapist will then employ shiatsu massage techniques for 30 minutes, applying firm pressure to meridian points throughout the body to relieve pain and increase blood circulation.
