Style-seeking clients have relied on Salon Celine for more than 20 years. With a master colorist on staff, the studio specializes in hair hues, but stylists also snip, condition, and style with professional products. Color services constitute about 75 percent of Salon Celine's business, and sylists will work with clients to customize colors to their style and needs. Meanwhile, across the room, a dedicated brow specialist tidies eyes, and makeup artists and stylists spruce up brides with wedding-oriented beauty treatments. To pamper even the busiest of clients, the receptionist pencils in special evening and weekend appointments by request, and a retail boutique provides Moroccanoil, Pureology, Joico, Matrix, Goldwell, and Coppola products to use at home.
Hair never stops growing, but the expert stylists at Luisa Hair Salons have been fighting the good fight for more than two decades. With shears and professional-grade shampoos as their weapons, they battle hair breakage and craft looks as diverse as their clients' personalities. If your hair isn't straight, curly, or glow-in-the-dark enough for your liking, no worries?the salon's chemical treatments are designed to make even the most difficult of styles a reality.
The infrared saunas at Silver Spring Hair Scalp & Wellness Clinic harness naturally occurring far-infrared radiant heat to help clients shed excess water weight and detoxify their bodies in 20-minute sauna sessions. During each session, gentle warmth raises clients' core body temperatures to encourage a healthy sweat, helping rid the body of environmental toxins, heavy metals, and lost sea monkeys. The heat boosts the circulatory and lymphatic systems and accelerates the body's metabolism, which can dissolve fat cells and flush them away to create trimmer profiles. Muscle tension from overexertion, minor injury, or arthritis can melt away during restful sauna sessions as oxygen and blood flow increase in afflicted areas. After a series of treatments, clients can feel slimmer, enjoy a greater sense of wellbeing, and boil water with a simple smoldering touch.
At Blowouts Salon, skilled nail technicians pamper appendages with softening paraffin wax followed by a medley of moisturizing services. Hands dip into paraffin wax to obtain a soft and silky feel before a manicurist trims, files, and brushes nails with a hue as red as a fire engine or as green as a jealous fire engine. Next, a foot scrub exfoliates soles and a mud mask relaxes and rejuvenates well-worn surfaces. A leg-and-foot massage rounds out the service, leaving clients feeling refreshed, composed, and ready to take a stand against any pessimistic palm reader.
The continually educated stylists of Ritz Hair Gallery transform manes into masterpieces with a dizzying array of services. The Moroccanoil Restorative Repair treatment counteracts damage caused by chemical processing and the sun's harsh rays in roughly 10 minutes. During the process, a cocktail of protein and argan oil restores elasticity, deeply hydrates, and strengthens strands to act as swinging ropes for kittens without snapping in half. A skilled specialist will then leave nutrient-coated locks smooth and silky with a soothing blow-dry.
Laura Leakhena Ley is living proof of what you can accomplish with a little hard work. After moving to American from Cambodia with her family, she trained at Hayward College of Cosmetology and became a licensed nail technician and aesthetician, and then spent five years perfecting her techniques in other salons. When she and her husband, David, opened Orchid Nails, they had only two employees. Since then, that number has more than quadrupled as customers continue to pour in, thanks to the salon’s reputation for friendly service and strict sanitation standards.
Those standards include disposing of every file, buffer, slipper, and toe separator after nail services, which end with the customer’s choice of more than 1,000 colors of polish by OPI, China Glaze, and Essie. They take equal care when waxing away hair from chins, sideburns, and bodies, or while threading it away from brows and lips or onto balding teddy bears. Facials scrub and steam away imperfections such as blackheads, while massage services soothe away tension and muscular congestion with techniques ranging from deep-tissue pressure to reflexology.
