Noelle Campbell-Goodrich made her foray into the hair industry by working as an apprentice at Sugar Salon. With that experience under her belt, she went on to study at Toni&Guy in New York City and Vidal Sassoon San Francisco. When she returned home, she became the head stylist at Sugar Salon and eventually the owner. After five years of leading her own staff, her continual curiosity about hair prompted a move to Sonoma and a new job at Cheveux, which means "hair" in French and "I can't hide my ears" in Elvish.
Housed inside a historic yellow house, Cheveux's remodeled interior features black-and-white checkered floors, white wainscoting, and inset shelves. A fireplace keeps patrons warm during the winter and entertains eyes with four portraits of the Beatles as seen through the eyes of an actual beetle. Amid these posh furnishings, Noelle performs services such as extensions, straightening treatments, and bridal updos under the watchful gaze of owner Sharna Haver. In addition to molding manes with products by Redken, Wella, and Agadir, the stylists at Cheveux also raised funds for Voices, an organization that provides education, housing, and employment for young adults transitioning out of foster care.

Santé Restaurant’s refined menu of contemporary French and American cuisine has earned the eatery honors including a Michelin star and an AAA Four Diamond Award. The sophisticated yet simple cooking showcases the quality of the ingredients, many of which are locally sourced—on the current menu, the tasting of beef entree features a filet mignon from Niman Ranch, and dessert courses boast zinfandel-poached black mission figs. Chefs also search out of state for high-end delicacies, such as butter-poached Maine lobster, which graces a grown-up mac ‘n’ cheese dish the New York Times dubbed a “must-try” in 2010. To complement the cuisine, the menu also features more than 500 wines from throughout Napa and Sonoma, earning the restaurant an Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator.
The dining room cultivates an elegant atmosphere, with low-lit sconces and French doors designed to fling open only for the freshest spring breezes. The sunshine-yellow hues of walls, plates, and tablecloths also help evoke a comfortably refined ambiance.
Earth tones and wood accents play their part in creating a calming atmosphere at M.Y. Life Holistic Salon Spa, founded by registered nurse Kyle O'Hara. The salon and spa's experts spruce up manes and use holistic skin treatments to combat the signs of aging. With MTV and BBC styling and makeup credits to her name, award-winning master colorist Mia Burk spoils strands with high-end, organic and vegan-friendly products made from distilled good karma. O'Hara curates a collection that includes serums especially chosen to accommodate a wide variety of skin tones. The products purveyed by the salon spa revolve around a three-prong philosophy of detoxification, rebuilding, and results maintenance.
If a jack of all trades is a master of none, then the aestheticians at Eyebrow Hub can safely call themselves masters of the art of eyebrow threading. They rid hirsute foreheads of unwanted stragglers, leaving behind gorgeously arched brows, but none of the redness, swelling, or amorous bees left by waxing. Despite the name, the threadsters also apply their hair-removal services to other areas, including upper lips, chins, and legs. Guests with a mind to supplement their threading, can go in for henna tattoos, eyelash extensions, and microdermabrasion.
In 2011, Jennifer Thomas and Pam Dawson decided to combine their styling skills and opened their boutique-inspired salon: Thomas Dawson & Co. The salon's team specializes in precision haircuts, but the stylists also offer color and texturizing treatments using professional-grade haircare products, including Goldwell, Redken, and Kemon. Additionally, an onsite nail technician pampers fingers and toes with mani-pedis that can incorporate indulgent touches such as soothing aromatherapy oils.
