Karen Lynn's Back to Basics facial—a blend of massage and hydration—epitomizes her spa philosophy. Instead of chasing the latest crazes, Karen focuses on the nexus between traditional, time-tested facials and current information about skincare. After all, she's been an aesthetician for more than two decades, and has seen many trends come and go. At Skin Logic, she targets acne, wrinkles, and dryness with cleansing facials, peels, and microcurrent treatments.
The historical building that once housed the Bank of Suisun is now home to Knotty Hair Salon. Floor-to-ceiling arched windows bathe the cream-hued walls and sleek wooden floors in ample light. The centerpiece of the salon is a row of towering black workstations flanked by salon chairs. It's where Terresa Borrego displays her vast skill set in the hair world with trendy cuts, color, extensions, and updos. She uses Wella and Kevin Murphy hair products to help her create new looks.
Ornate candlesticks, framed mirrors, fringed lampshades, and detailed furniture bestow Shear Madness Salon, Tanning, & Day Spa with a Victorian look that conveys decadence. But the nostalgia only goes so far as the decor, as the spa's staff beautifies its clients with modern techniques and products. Mystic spray-tan booths deliver glows within seconds, and Beach Wave perms and keratin treatments change the texture of tresses.
During Ellen Decker's 27-year career in sales management, she only had time to practice holistic healing as a hobby. Retirement changed all that.

Guests can seek her expertise for a Swedish massage, reiki energy therapy, or request a soothing body scrub to exfoliate the physique.
