Amarte means, loosely translated, to love yourself. And the talented staff at Amarte Salon and Spa work hard to ensure time spent with them feeds and nourishes your soul. A full-service salon offering hair services, nails, massage, facials, waxing, and hair and eyelash extensions, Amarte caters to pampering its clients.
“Redding residents should be able to experience a world class salon and spa without having to travel to San Francisco or Beverly Hills,” says “owner, Dr. Craig A. Kraffert.” At Amarte, we want you to love you and experience the freedom to express your true self wherever you may go. We promise to provide an enriching experience, inspired by Aveda’s excellence, that boosts your inner and outer confidence.”
Kraffert, a board-certified dermatologist, is also the founder of dermstore.com and Redding Derm, a five-clinic dermatology practice in Northern California and Oregon that specializes in clinical and aesthetic dermatology.
The nearly 1,400-square foot Placer Street salon, in the heart of downtown Redding … not San Francisco or Los Angeles, is designed for not only maximum productivity, but a tranquil and soothing spa experience.
Whether you want a haircut, color, texture or extensions, Amarte’s top-notch stylists will have you looking even more amazing in no time. Or if you’re looking to pamper yourself with a restorative nature massage, a deep tissue massage or even a pregnancy massage, you’ll leave on Cloud Nine.
“We are a full-service salon offering hair services, nails, massage, facial, waxing and hair and eyelash extensions,” manager, Valerie Gravino says. “Our services use naturally derived, plant-based, vegan products. From the moment you walk in the salon to the moment you leave, we provide a unique, high-end experience to balance your body, mind and spirit while caring for you and the world.”
“We love beauty, feeling comfortable in our skin and loving ourselves, and it makes us happy to be able to provide services so that people can love themselves and feel beautiful,” says Gravino. “We want people to feel like they can come to a clean, homey salon, take a deep breath of Aveda’s pure aromas, and get their self-care needs met.”
And with the treatment clients receive, they walk away feeling like part of the Amarte Family. “We love the community of our coworkers, clients, family and friends all coming together to learn about beauty and take advantage of great promotions.”
