The expert team of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists at Athena Salon & Spa shares a common goal—to provide a relaxing escape from daily routine. To do this, they draw on a menu of spa and salon services that includes everything from haircuts to fruit-infused facial peels. In private treatment rooms, massage therapists rely on hot stones and deep-tissue techniques to melt soreness caused by stress or back flipping into an empty pool. The spa’s footbaths, at least, are filled with warm water and pulsating jets to soothe sore feet and prepare them for cuticle treatments. For special occasions, the beauty experts can combine services such as waxes and updos into packages for brides, grooms, and their miniature wedding-cake likenesses.
Suzie Johnson studied the art of eyelash extensions in Los Angeles and puts her skills to work today at Tease Hair Studio. Donning magnifying glasses for a deeper view of her subject's lids, she uses tiny tweezers to adhere each individual extension to her client’s natural lashes. Each one adds length and volume to winks and blinks, negating the need for heavy mascaras or well-trained pet caterpillars.
Hillary’s hairstyling skills earned her a workstation at Tease Hair Studio. Here, she cuts classic and modern styles, including wispy bangs, long layers, and bobs. Her creations are boosted with all-over hue changes and multidimensional highlights. In addition, she uses Zerran RealLisse vegan products to smooth strands, eliminate frizz, and shorten styling time for up to four months.
Like the world around it, a person's skin changes from season to season. Seasons of Skin’s spa treatments, including massages, facials, and waxing, help treat a variety of recurring ailments, whether they're skin dried out by winter winds or unwanted leg hairs that bud alongside springtime blossoms. The spa tailors its treatments and products to meet any person's epidermal needs. Its own custom product line is designed with the most sensitive skin in mind, aiming to repair damaged complexions while also maintaining a smooth and healthy skin tone.
Christine Dechert and Briana Fernandez at Fourth Street Studio transform their clients' looks and accommodate aesthetically adventurous spirits with a variety of hair services rendered with Redken products. Both members of the duo employ their color knowledge of the ombre color technique, imbue tresses with multifaceted beauty with balayage highlights, and reboot locks with the bright hues of the Redken coloring system. Additionally, they also offer keratin straightening treatments, makeup applications, wedding and special occasion services, and hair and feather extensions, the last of which was greatly appreciated by Yankee Doodle. Christine's 18 years of stylist experience and Briana's 10 years of experience allow their keen aesthetic eyes to craft haircuts tailored to client's hair type and growth pattern for a chic or classic style that fits well into each customer's lifestyle and maintenance habits. Both stylists also train continually to prevent any cobwebs from encroaching upon their deft shear hands, and they eagerly work with each client to accomplish the best possible aesthetic outcome.
Salon 12 has earned the title of Aveda Concept salon, which means that they carry Aveda’s line of haircare, skincare, and body products, but their allegiance to the brand doesn’t end there. The styling staffers—all of whom hail from Sonoma County—regularly attend Aveda training classes to ensure that they remain abreast of the latest innovations in both products and techniques. With these freshly honed skills, they build out an extensive roster of hairstyling services, including cuts, highlights, and extensions. They also perform keratin treatments, which make unmanageable locks sleeker and smoother than a successful trash salesman. While their hairstyling services form the backbone of their salon, the team also renders a handful of spa-centric treatments, including waxing, makeup application, facials, and plant-based peels to exfoliate the skin.
