As an Aveda Concept Salon, Progressive Image Hair Art proudly stocks and implements an array of plant-based Aveda products. Specializing in cutting and styling long, short, and curly hair, the salon calls upon the beautifying powers of its signature products during a variety of customized treatments, from deep-conditioner applications to styling sessions for both men and women. Delving deeper into the realm of beauty, the spa also possesses expertise in makeup as well.
The friendly staff at Zen Spa Lounge—located in The Sedgefield Shoppes between Marisol Restaurant and Blossoms—pampers clients with a lengthy list of massage, skin, and nail treatments. Therapists knead away tension and improve immune systems with deep-tissue massages and reflexology treatments. Aestheticians customize four kinds of facials to combat acne, dehydration, and dullness, perking up treatments with specialty masks full of football-movie pep talks and vitamins A and C.
The team at Frumoasa Salon & Spa is small and focused. Four stylists, a massage therapist, and an aesthetician work together toward a single mission: to relax and beautify clients. To achieve this end, they treat everyone who walks into their spacious, chandelier-lit salon as an individual. Before hair stylists perform designer cuts, apply color, or texturize hair, they consult with clients, studying their facial shape and coloring. Similarly, these types of thorough consultations also precede other beauty treatments including waxing, aromatherapy massage, and c-estes facials. During treatments, the team pulls from a toolbox stocked with professional-grade product lines, including Eufora Hero, Keratin Complex, and Colure.
The dedicated staff of Beauty Chateau Med Spa Salon use treatments to help clients look and feel their best. Signs of aging ranging from sun spots to wrinkles can be combatted with IPL photo-rejuvenation treatments, crystal microdermabrasion, and chemical peels. Spa treatments such as body wraps and scrubs are enhanced with oils, Dead Sea salt, and therapeutic herbs. Mani-pedis can be augmented with paraffin treatments and hydrating masks. Beauty Chateau even provides hairstyling services, such as Brazilian blowouts and feather extensions.
SkiNplicity’s aesthetician De Ana Fritz brings more than a decade of skincare experience to her treatment of overly dry, oily, or hirsute exteriors. The one-hour European facial commences with a client consultation to craft a specialized strategy for shucking a worn-out face husk. A change into a clean gown protects vestments from spotting, while an optionally heated bed protects back muscles from tension. After cleansing, exfoliating, purifying, massaging, and de-gunking with an individualized masque, a hydrating spritz and SPF cream guard visages against the sun and its plot to turn the earth into a cache of human jerky.
Owned and operated by George Muntean Sr., Muntean’s is a haven for fresh diner fare and tasty soups that have garnered praise from CBS Sacramento. The red-carpet walker of Muntean’s menu is its homemade soup ($3.95/cup, $4.95/bowl), which is available in different varieties each week and ranges from beef chili to romanian mulligatoni. Sandwich options ($7.95–$9.25) abound as well, including meaty and vegetarian choices, each shuffled together to order and grilled to crispy perfection instead of placed inside a toaster that’s then heated up in a microwave. Riding a tandem bike of deliciousness, soup and sandwiches encapsulate Muntean’s Big Deal combination plate ($8.95) and pedal off into the sunset holding hands.
