Nava's Hair Studio's Facebook page reads like a beauty magazine, offering tips on such things as how to prevent hair from frizzing in the summer (keep hair properly hydrated so it won't absorb moisture in the air and swell) and how to build volume at the crown while keeping the rest of the hair sleek (apply mousse roots to ends, put hair in a ponytail on the top of your head, release when dry). The page is so informative because Nava's head stylist and owner, Ofelia, has been working in the industry for more than 20 years. Plus, she constantly travels the country seeking advanced knowledge on such things as how to cut hair based on facial structure and how to hide a third eye with dramatic bangs.
At her studio, Ofelia and her team of stylists keep locks looking spiffy with face-flattering cuts, Brazilian blowouts, and highlights and lowlights. They also beautify clients with waxing services and lash and brow tints.
After 16 years in the beauty industry, cosmetologist and aesthetician Manisha Hotpeti understands how to tailor a skincare service to meet the needs of many different skin types. As an owner of Desi Threading & More, she is able to offer a menu of services that include diverse treatments such as threading, acupressure, and reflexology. The beauty spot has been serving downtown Sacramento for the past three years and has recently opened a second location in Folsom. When Manisha isn't precisely threading eyebrows with strands of cotton thread to remove unwanted hairs, she can shape brows with wax and enhance eyes with lash extensions. Manisha's facials and peels purge clogged pores and exfoliate visages, and her henna tattoos adorn hands and arms with swirling designs and scavenger-hunt clues.
The staff at Kimberly Page Skincare tailors its services to each client's needs and demonstrates a dedication to customer coziness by furnishing comfortable paisley chairs in which guests wait and admire tall plants set against exposed red brick. The spa's massage therapists ease tense sinews, and aestheticians daub countenances with advanced facial treatments and sculpt bodily contours with slimming wraps and microcurrent treatments. The team of beauty professionals further showcases its versatility by peeling away epidermal blights with vitamin C and glycolic-acid concoctions, as well as extracting unsightly fuzz with wax warmed over the receptionist's hard drive.
Boasting more than 20 years of beautifying experience, licensed aesthetician Julie Rush oversees Elite Esthetics and Massage's menu of skin-polishing services. During the 60-minute deep-cleansing facial, pores get introduced to a purifying wash and exfoliator designed to extract impurities and last year's Halloween makeup. A relaxing face, neck, and upper-back massage then instills a sense of calm and comfort before a toner and moisturizer application concludes the treatment, leaving complexions brighter than a neurosurgeon dressed in neon. The European aromatherapy facial takes 90 minutes to deliver the same treatment as the cleansing facial plus an aromatherapy face and neck massage. Extra time is also spent catering to individual skin needs and soothing hands with a toning treatment.
