Brooklyn Ries and Danielle Craft thought long and hard before choosing a name for their salon. In the end, they decided on Angels & Architects Hair Studio—angels because they regularly help to correct hair disasters such as bad dye jobs and cuts, and architects because they pay attention to structure and detail.
Drawing from years of experience and professional training in salons across California and New York, the two aesthetes and their seasoned staff members spruce up locks, filling the shop with the thrum of scissors and the sibilance of spray bottles.

A photo booth from Heather Dunn Photography can be a party-enlivening tool for birthdays, weddings, family reunions, and more. Rentals come with a number of extras, including a plethora of props such as silly hats and feathered boas, to get the photographed in the mood to strike a deadly pose. A trained attendant will be on hand throughout the event to make sure the booth is running efficiently and to suggest tried-and-true facial contortions. All strips printed are included in the rental, and the host receives a disc that contains every image taken during the event, so he or she can show family members every close-quarters shot in high quality.

Three certified arborists, otherwise known as the Tree DoctoRx, have been maintaining tree and landscape health for 15 years. Their work has garnered a faithful entourage of lifelong clients as well as two consecutive first-place People’s Choice Awards from the Fresno Bee. With a detective’s eye for detail, they scour the surrounding land in search of potential threats such as diseases and pests suspected of criminal activity. Their integrated pest management rids trees, shrubs, and soil of harmful bugs with low-toxicity, organic products, while their organic based fertilizers burrow into the ground to strengthen root systems against an onslaught of disease, drought, and bugs.
