The words "Beauty Salon" emblazon a red farmhouse exterior in bold Western-style font, and white-bordered windows and striped awnings shelter guests heading inside. Black-and-white checkered floors lend a modern feel to the interior and facilitate human checkers games as stylists crop coiffures, highlight locks, and arrange tresses into sophisticated updos. Rhapsody's hair techs also condition frizzy tendrils and color strands with vibrant hues.
Acrylics and shellac are just one facet of the creative salon services offered by seasoned pros at Capitola Hair & Nail Designs. They also liven up limp hair with perms, iron out frizz during straightening treatments, apply hair extensions, remove unwanted facial hair with wax, and color locks to complement skin tone or match your nation’s flag.
When guests walk into Stranded Beauty Bar, a receptionist greets them with chilled soda or hot-off-the-presses coffee and tea. They can sip on their drink during appointments with Tess, a stylist trained at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in London, UK who creates new hairstyles that complement face shapes and the current moon phase. She also expertly applies natural-looking highlights, or steps outside the box with streaks of cobalt blue or hot pink.
At Shear Color & Design, a professional team of stylists uses artful and technical methods to help clients achieve desired hairstyles. Creamy earth tones run throughout the styling area, offset by the dark finish of an antique Victorian china hutch and the deep centers of blooming orchids. In order to help clients discover haircuts, color treatments, or extensions suitable for their individual personalities, the stylists offer complimentary consultations. Smoothing treatments are available to keep idea light bulbs from getting tangled in frizzy or curly locks.
Pink and turquoise accents brighten the interior of Rock n' Hair, a retro-styled salon where stylist Gabriela channels inspiration from modern trends and years past to help clients look their sharpest. She replicates classic 1950s hairstyles such as lush finger waves, thick Betty Page bangs, and voluminous beehives like the one worn by Dwight D. Eisenhower. Gabriela can also give clients an edgier look by infusing strands with colors such as lavender or candy pink. Although vintage styles are Gabriela?s specialty, she also skillfully decorates tresses with modern styles such as ombre color.
At Studio 519, staff pamper guests from head to toe. They refresh skin with facials and peels, including vitamin C facials that can be upgraded with complementary eye, lip, or hand treatments. Hair is tended with cuts and color, with bridal and event styling also available. And the staff doesn't just pamper skin and hair; massages are also available.
