The stylists at Elegance of Beauty make clients look their best with a slew of salon services. In a single visit the staff might completely revamp a hairdo, removing frizz with keratin treatments and adding vibrancy with highlights.
The historical building that once housed the Bank of Suisun is now home to Knotty Hair Salon. Floor-to-ceiling arched windows bathe the cream-hued walls and sleek wooden floors in ample light. The centerpiece of the salon is a row of towering black workstations flanked by salon chairs. It's where Terresa Borrego displays her vast skill set in the hair world with trendy cuts, color, extensions, and updos. She uses Wella and Kevin Murphy hair products to help her create new looks.
In 2011, Jennifer Thomas and Pam Dawson decided to combine their styling skills and opened their boutique-inspired salon: Thomas Dawson & Co. The salon's team specializes in precision haircuts, but the stylists also offer color and texturizing treatments using professional-grade haircare products, including Goldwell, Redken, and Kemon. Additionally, an onsite nail technician pampers fingers and toes with mani-pedis that can incorporate indulgent touches such as soothing aromatherapy oils.
The beauticians at The Glamaholic pamper clients with salon and manicure services in their studio and at clients' homes. Stylists artfully cut and make over hair, beautifying with color, highlights, and keratin straightening treatments. Aestheticians glitz up nails with elaborate 3-D nail painting, adorning fingertips with flowers and colorful patterns.
When she became a licensed aesthetician more than eight years ago, Monica Lucero already had a steady client: herself. Having suffered from acne as a teenager, she'd started learning about skincare in an effort to clear her own skin. Monica started to channel her own experience into a caring attitude toward her clients through Changes Salon in Walnut Creek and Le Jardin in Pleasant Hill, and today, at Cosi Bella Day Spa. In all of her services?which range from chemical peels to facial waxing?she strives to cultivate an atmosphere that, like a solid-gold beanbag chair, will leave people feeling both pampered and relaxed.
