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.
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.

The fitness facility combines the feel of an old-school iron gym with the excitement and variety of modern cross-training's fast-paced intervals of cardio, and weight-lifting. Clients work out on fitness equipment sprawled across three floors or blast calories in Studio Fit 515 classes. Powerhouse Gym Downtown Santa Rosa also keeps infrared saunas warmed up to assist clients with recovery and relaxation.
The North Bay community that patrons this facility has consistently acknowledged its efforts. Powerhouse received the honorable mention for Best Gym in 2011, 2012, and 2013 as voted by the readers of the Bohemian.
Amid the bustling streets of Santa Rosa sits Passions for Hair & Spa, its staff of stylists busily evicting the stresses of bustling life from clients' scalps, feet, and hands with practiced techniques and therapeutic product lines. During hair and scalp treatments bolstered by botanical-infused Aquage Biomega serums and Kenra and Schwarzkopf hair products, stylists update manes and brighten the color of tresses dulled by sun damage and heat with demi-permanents, semi-permanents, or color glosses, leaving noggins as dazzling as a diamond-encrusted street magician. Skilled nail techs ensure hands, legs, and feet receive their fair share of coddling with soothing massages, exfoliating scrubs, and vibrant coats of nail polish from Gelish, OPI, and China Glaze. Massage therapists also knead knotted muscles, and aestheticians wax unwanted hair and perform relaxing facials.

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.
