Style Magazine: January 2020

StyleMediaGroup

Today was a good day. I was pampered by professionals with a haircut, color, and multiple conditioning treatments (yep, my hair was that haggard); dolled up with a faceful of makeup; and dressed in something other than spit-up stained jeans. Seriously, the stylists at Halo Salon & Day Spa in Roseville are a cut above the rest (pun intended). They made me feel comfortable, confident in their ability to transform my overly bleached (and balding) hair, and were total team players. I walked in worn-out and disheveled and left looking put together and polished for the first time in a long time.
I wasn’t the only Styler to get treated to a makeover this month. Eight others also volunteered to partake (it’s a tough job but some of us had to do it!) and are welcoming the new year with a new look—whether in the form of purple-hued highlights, long layers, or saying farewell to facial hair (two fellas were lucky enough to get groomed, too). Curious to see the transformations? Flip to page 43 for the before and after pics, along with commentary about what all was done and why. Maybe this is the year you, too, step out of your style-comfort zone and do something different with your ‘do. After all, in the words of Sheryl Crow, “a change would do you good!”
Are you joining the majority of Americans and resolving to eat healthier or exercise more in 2020? If so, this month’s mag has everything you need to make your resolution a reality. In The 10 Spot (page 20), Tara Mendanha suggests wacky workouts that combine fitness with fun (a yoga practice on stand-up paddleboards, anyone?), ensuring breaking a sweat doesn’t have to be boring; in Taste (page 88), we recommend and share the recipes for three sensational salads (including the colorful keto one featured on our cover); and in The Hot List (page 87), Tara Harbert writes about six plant-based plates found around town that are nutritious and delicious.
As we welcome a new year, and say farewell to the season of serving others, I encourage you to do something nice for yourself. Whether it’s booking a beauty appointment, going for a walk sans kiddos and canines, or cozying up with this here copy of Style for some uninterrupted reading time, a little self-care—and fresh hair—goes a long way. Cheers!

Today was a good day. I was

pampered by professionals with

a haircut, color, and multiple

conditioning treatments (yep,

my hair was that haggard); dolled

up with a faceful of makeup;

and dressed in something other than spit-up

stained jeans. Seriously, the stylists at Halo Salon

& Day Spa in Roseville are a cut above the rest

(pun intended). They made me feel comfortable,

confident in their ability to transform my overly

bleached (and balding) hair, and were total team

players. I walked in worn-out and disheveled and

left looking put together and polished for the first

time in a long time.

I wasn’t the only Styler to get treated to

a makeover this month. Eight others also

volunteered to partake (it’s a tough job but some

of us had to do it!) and are welcoming the new

year with a new look—whether in the form of

purple-hued highlights, long layers, or saying

farewell to facial hair (two fellas were lucky

enough to get groomed, too). Curious to see the transformations? Flip to page 43 for the before

and after pics, along with commentary about what all was done and why. Maybe this is the year

you, too, step out of your style-comfort zone and do something different with your ‘do. After all,

in the words of Sheryl Crow, “a change would do you good!”

Are you joining the majority of Americans and resolving to eat healthier or exercise more in

2020? If so, this month’s mag has everything you need to make your resolution a reality. In The

10 Spot (page 20), Tara Mendanha suggests wacky workouts

that combine fitness with fun (a yoga practice on stand-up

paddleboards, anyone?), ensuring breaking a sweat doesn’t

have to be boring; in Taste (page 88), we recommend and

share the recipes for three sensational salads (including the

colorful keto one featured on our cover); and in The Hot List

(page 87), Tara Harbert writes about six plant-based plates

found around town that are nutritious and delicious.

Curious what’s going to be cool in the world of wellness

this year? Hint: Watermelon seed butter, non-alcoholic ales,

and fruit-based flours are about to be “a thing.” Read about

the rest of the trends on page 68. Though I’m not sure I can

jump on board with some of them quite yet (sorry, but I like

my beer with booze), it’s interesting to see where the health

industry is headed.

As we welcome a new year, and say farewell to the season

of serving others, I encourage you to do something nice for yourself. Whether it’s booking a

beauty appointment, going for a walk sans kiddos and canines, or cozying up with this here

HAVE YOU EVER

BEEN TOLD

YOU LOOK

LIKE A

CELEBRITY?

“Biggest compliment ever—Julie

Bowen!”—Kerrie L. Kelly

"I've been told I look like Judy Greer

a few times, but the best one I've

heard is Emily Blunt. Both women

are beauties, so I'll take it!"

—Kourtney Jason

“People often tell me I bear a

striking resemblance to James

Franco.”—Ray Burgess

“Only once, and they said a young

Sandra Bullock. I disagree, but

when I tell people I think I look

like Tina Majorino (Deb from

Napoleon Dynamite) they tend to

agree.”—Emily Peter

These are in chronological order of

being mentioned in my lifetime:

Adam Sandler, Ben Affleck, Adam

Levine, Adrien Brody, Justin

Verlander, Gavin Newsom, and

Massimo Bottura. I don’t really

agree with any of them.”

—Gary Zsigo

“I've had a few people out of the

blue say I look like Demi Moore…

pre nose job. That said, she'd

be gorgeous with a clown nose

on, so I'll still take it as a huge

compliment.”—Suzie Dundas

“So many people, throughout the

years, have said I remind them of

Molly Shannon. I think it’s more

mannerisms than looks, though.”

—Julie Ryan

Jennifer Kirk may be no stranger to

appearing on TV, but her business

started with smaller ambitions. “We had

Chihuahuas and our daughters enjoyed

dressing [them] up; then the idea came to

start offering something for dog lovers.”

That something turned into Posh

Puppy Boutique, a luxury retailer of

canine products with a brick and mortar

in Rocklin and an online store. Kirk has

been a dog lover since birth and a Rocklin

resident since 1972. ”I’m a productive

member of our community and give back

wherever I can,” she says, which probably

explains why she jumped at the chance

to get involved with the Vanderpump

Dog Foundation, a nonprofit run by Lisa

Vanderpump of The Real Housewives of

Beverly Hills.

The two became friendly when

Posh Puppy Boutique started stocking

the organization’s dog accessories.

Kirk instantly took an interest in

the nonprofit’s mission to end

dog overpopulation, neglect, and

international abuse, specifically around

China’s Yulin Dog Meat Festival.

In 2016, Kirk assisted Vanderpump

with the fundraising and opening of the

organization’s headquarters: Vanderpump

Dogs in Los Angeles—an adoption center,

pup boutique, and groom and glam center,

complete with blueberry facials. Kirk is

still involved with the center, which just

helped its thousandth pup find a forever

home. “We just adopted two dogs from

there ourselves!” she says.

Q&A

What advice would you give to

your younger self?

Focus on the future and don’t

worry what others think of you. If you make

mistakes, learn from them and move on!

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

Being late. I was always taught that “to be early

is to be on time; to be on time is to be late.”

Are you high- or low-maintenance?

I feel like I’m low-maintenance, but my husband

would say otherwise.

What comes to you naturally?

Working.

What are you most proud of?

How far I’ve come in my life and the obstacles

I’ve conquered.

Favorite humanitarian cause?

Dog rescues.

Best words of wisdom you’ve received?

Don’t ever burn a bridge, even if you think

you’ll never cross it again. Sometimes those

bridges come up later in life under different

circumstances.

Q: WHAT’S DIM SUM?

A: Typically, when one thinks

of “dim sum” they envision the

traditional Chinese dim sum, which

includes pushcarts and steamer

baskets with a variety of dumplings

and steamed buns served with

tea. However, depending on your

interpretation, dim sum literally

translates to “little hearts” or “touch

of the heart.” Similar to appetizers

or Spanish tapas, the concept of

dim sum is a meal of small plates

with bite-sized food that is shared,

so everyone can try a variety of

tastes. No matter how you choose

to enjoy dim sum, it should always

be enjoyed with good conversation

and good company.

Q: WHAT ARE SOME WAYS TO

GET A PUPPY ACCLIMATED TO A

NEW HOME?

A: If you’re preparing for a new

pup, take or send a small blanket

to the breeder to use with Mom

and her babies. When you bring

your puppy home, the smells on

the blanket will be familiar and

comforting. With all new pets, it’s

best to take things slowly so as

not to overwhelm them. Let them

explore at their own pace, and be

sure you have a comfy bed/safe

spot for them. Also, most pets like

a routine, so start right away to

be consistent about feeding time,

potty breaks, exercise, and sleep.

Remember: It’s all about patience

and love; over time, your pet

will adjust and become a happy

member of your family.

Art of Living

Foundation

A Breath of Fresh Air

by LINDA HOLDERNESS

photos by DANTE FONTANA

24 stylemg.com | JANUARY 2020 | /stylemg /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags


Twenty years ago, in college, Deepak Gilra remembers, “I suffered.”

Away from his family, juggling the stresses of a tough curriculum,

he recalls, “I snapped at people all the time, usually for no reason.”

Eventually, Gilra developed arthritis and took several pills a day to

lessen the pain. About the same time, Annelies Richmond was hurting, too. A

ballerina with the Metropolitan Opera in New York City, she tried yoga to nurse

her injuries and endured hours of stage fright before each performance. Today,

the temper tantrums are gone, the pills are absent, and the anxiety is a distant

memory. Both Gilra and Richmond discovered, and now lead, a different path to

well-being: The Art of Living Happiness Program.

Founded in 1981 by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the Art of Living Foundation

is a humanitarian nonprofit operating in more than 155 countries. The

foundation’s Happiness Program, with local centers in Folsom, Sacramento,

and Roseville, teaches rhythmic breathing exercises and deep meditation,

along with guided yoga, to help reduce stress and heal the mind and body.

“These are proven techniques that help manage your mind and emotions,”

Gilra says. “The mind is all over the place. It goes to past anger and regrets

and worries about the future, but the present is where you are most

productive. These techniques help you get there.”

The basic program is a nine-hour weekend course from Friday to Sunday.

By the end of the three days, Richmond says, participants are able to slip into

a deep state of meditation. Anyone can do it, even people who think they

can’t. The result? Program graduates report less stress, anxiety, restlessness,

sleeplessness, even depression. In their place are greater mental stamina and

focus, more energy, a feeling of well-being, and a positive state of mind. Studies

seem to support the claims. The Art of Living website cites research showing

clinical depression reduced by 67% and clinical anxiety by 41%. In various studies,

beta wave brain activity increased significantly, correlating with heightened

alertness and mental focus, and the immune system strengthened. Even overall

cholesterol, triglyceride, and blood pressure levels dropped.

Gilra credits the increased circulation of deep breathing with curing his

arthritis and eliminating chronic anger. “The first few weeks after learning the

program,” he says, “were blissful.” He has no doubt the techniques can help

everyone. “We breathe 10,000 liters of air a day. Using our breath effectively

is a powerful tool that can do wonders. It’s so fulfilling to see the effect these

techniques have on people.”

The Folsom center, where Gilra teaches, offers one fee-based Happiness

Program weekend a month and two free preview sessions each week. Alumni

can join advanced sessions and Meetups or download apps to keep up their

practice. The program also accepts children as young as eight who work in

same-age groups. The benefits to kids, Gilra says, include helping them learn to

focus and make good life choices.

Spotlight on

Irene Yesley

by HEATHER L. NELSON

Irene Yesley started her art career at the tender age of four, making

jewelry out of shells, playing with old paint cans, and stenciling on sheets

and pillowcases. “My mother noticed I liked making things; from then on,

I received every art kit ever made for birthdays and Christmas,” shares Yesley.

Influenced over the years by artists such as Giorgio Morandi and Jacob El

Hanani, Yesley now creates thought-provoking abstract monotype prints and

Plexiglas paintings focused on shape, color, and patterns. Moving to El Dorado

Hills two years ago from Bainbridge Island in Puget Sound, the artist has already

shown her work at numerous galleries, including San Francisco Women Artists,

Gold Country Artists’ Gallery, and Blue Line Arts. In July, she’ll have a solo show

at Sacramento’s Arthouse Gallery & Studios.

HLN: HOW HAS YOUR ARTISTRY EVOLVED?

IY: After earning a Master of Fine Arts in printmaking at Arizona State University,

I bought a four-foot loom and forgot about printmaking. For the next couple

of decades, I was a fiber artist, making rugs then tapestries. In the ’90s, I began

working with cloth—running it through a press to make color images. Gradually,

JANUARY 2020 | stylemg.com 39


| arts & entertainment |

I moved to painting; however, I wanted

more dimensionality, so I began painting

images on pieces of Plexiglas and stacking

them in layers, making three-dimensional

paintings. Now I’m also working on paper,

drawing with markers or pencil and

making monotypes using an etching press.

HLN: WHAT IS IDEAL ABOUT

PRINTMAKING AND WHAT ARE ITS

CHALLENGES?

IY: Making a monotype is exciting, because

you can never be sure how your print will

turn out. The print that comes off the press

will be the reverse of the image you made,

and the printing ink often has a way of

creating an unexpected effect. This adds

up to a loss of control for the artist, which

is different from painting or drawing. Not

having total control can lead to new ideas;

of course, less control can also lead to the

garbage can.

HLN: WHAT DO YOU HOPE YOUR

VIEWERS GAIN FROM YOUR WORK?

IY: Because I work abstractly using patterns

and shapes, and especially being conscious

of the spaces between the shapes, there

is no contextual message. Viewers of my

work are free to bring their own ideas to

the images and, hopefully, will have an

instinctive positive reaction.

HLN: HAVE YOU KEPT ANY OF YOUR

OWN PIECES?

IY: Sometimes I want to keep particular

pieces around for a while, and I often get

new favorites as I continue to make things.

I’m one of those artists who will hang their

work on the wall to see if I grow tired of it

or if it continues to interest me; that’s my

test for success.

HLN: WHAT’S IN STORE FOR THE

FUTURE?

IY: I’m trying to make much larger pieces.

I have a tendency to work small, so I’m

making a conscious effort to go big. I also

like entering juried competitions and have

been in several California ones, including

LA’s Works on Paper and Sacramento’s

Magnum Opus.

NEW YEAR,

NEW STYLERS

9 Beauty

Makeovers

BY LUNA ANONA

Sometimes, you just need to shake

things up. From ditching goatees to firsttime

hair coloring, this team of Stylers

put their reflections in the hands of local

professionals as they received head-totoe

makeovers. Now, they’re ringing in

the new year as new versions of themselves.

Let’s take a look.

BEFORE

available at Ambiance Boutique,

6608 Folsom-Auburn Road,

Suite 8, Folsom, 916-936-4471,

ambianceboutiquefolsom.com

Position: Associate Publisher

My personal style is: Business casual and

trendy (but age-appropriate)

Holy grail beauty product: M-61 Power Glow

Peel from Blue Mercury

Most embarrassing style from the past:

Shiny satin and everything from the ’80s

Style icon: Jennifer Aniston. I still love her

hairdo from when she was Rachel on Friends.

I feel the most attractive when: I’m wearing

skinny jeans, ankle boots with a high heel, my

favorite top from Anthropologie, and I don’t

have grey roots.

Why did you want a change? I wanted to try

something new; this gave me the opportunity

to step outside of my comfort zone.

What bothered you most about your old

look? My hair has always been very curly, and

in the past year, it randomly became straight. I

don’t know how to style straight hair!

What was your first impression of your new

look? I looked glamorous, which is really a

different look for me, but I’m not sure that I

can apply false eyelashes on my own.

Now that you’ve gotten used to it, what do

you think? I learned some new makeup tricks

and am learning a whole new way of styling

my hair.

9 Beauty Makeovers

What’s the biggest thing that you’re taking away

from the experience? Trust your stylist! They

have a vision of what will look best and it may be

something you’ve never thought of. I also learned

that even at my age, change is possible and usually

a great boost to your self-confidence.

Makeover by Hoshall’s Salon & Spa

6608 Folsom-Auburn Road, Suite 4, Folsom, 916-

987-1995, hoshalls.com

Hoshall’s, which opened in 1974, is a full-service

salon and spa that nurtures top-notch customer

service while providing exceptionally crafted

current techniques delivered by a highly educated

staff. Saul has been a hairstylist for 31 years and

a part of Hoshall’s team for 17 years; Sara, an

esthetician who has spent seven of her 10-year

career at Hoshall’s, did the makeup.

What makes your salon unique? Hoshall’s

is a team-based salon that is dedicated to

empowering its staff so they can inspire the ones

they serve.

What are your top hair care tips?

• Unless you have very curly hair, get the ends

trimmed every 5-8 weeks.

• Don’t use excess heat. It causes stress, dryness,

and breakage.

• Use a silk pillowcase.

Bonus: Sara’s top makeup tips:

• Less is more.

• Fill in your brows.

• Always use SPF.

What are your 3 favorite tools or products?

Sara’s favorite products:

1. Jan Marini Transformation Cream

2. Nude lipstick: MAC Honey Love

3. Anastasia gel pot

What’s your style motto? Remove the hair that

doesn’t work, and you are left with the correct

hairstyle.

What the makeover entailed: We added a

shadow root and gave Debra a balayage (violet

red near the scalp and auburn reds toward the

end), then achieved a shag cut with textured ends

using shears and a razor. We finished with a curling

iron, R+Co Aircraft Pomade Mousse and Hoshall’s

hair spray. For her makeup, we moisturized with

Jan Marini Transformation Cream, and then used

a MAC face primer, foundation, and powder.

We topped that with Laura Mercier translucent

powder.

Why: We wanted to add depth to the root area

with a drop root shadow and bring a warm

auburn highlight through the violet red to pull

the two colors together. For the cut, we wanted

to remove the heaviness from around the face

at the top of her head by layering her hair and

removing a little weight in some areas using a

razor. For her makeup, we wanted to provide a

soft look using complementary tones from her

skin tone and hair color.

BEFORE

Sabrina Becker

Position: Marketing and Sales Assistant

My personal style is: Looking like I’m a mom of

two: black leggings and hair up

Holy grail beauty product: Rosewater toner or

Himalayan salt egg

Most embarrassing style from the past: Every

trend during middle school

I feel the most attractive when: I follow my skin

care routine after a nice shower.

Why did you want a change? I was ready to step

out of my comfort zone.

What bothered you most about your old look?

My hair was in an awkward and dull stage.

What was your first impression of your new

look? I thought that I looked like my aunt!

What’s the biggest thing that you’re taking away

from the experience? I have always wanted to go

red at least once in my life, so I’m thankful I can

say that I did it.

Makeover by Ciao Bella Salon

4615 Missouri Flat Road,Suite 3,

Placerville, 530-626-4247, facebook.com/

ciaobellasalonunderconstruction

One of the most beautiful salons in El Dorado

County, Ciao Bella—owned by Jody Visconti, who

purchased it with her husband three years

ago—offers hair and nail services, along with

special occasion makeup.

What makes your salon unique? Every stylist

and manicurist has at least one decade of

experience—others have over 30 years.

What are your top hair care tips?

• If you're willing to take the time to get your hair

done, you should take care of it afterwards by

buying the best products you can to maintain it.

• A great moisturizing shampoo and conditioner

will help keep your hair looking salon fresh.

What are your 3 favorite tools or products?

1. Davines Nounou Shampoo

2. Davines OI Oil

3. J Beverly Hills 5 in 1

What’s your style motto? You don't always have

to stick to the current trends; wear what makes

you feel beautiful.

What the makeover entailed: Sabrina came

into our salon with natural dark brown hair and

requested to have her hair tinted red. Our stylist,

Megan, used Matrix Color Insider to achieve

a beautiful bold red and styled her hair using

Davines OI Oil. Sabrina requested white nails,

which is a current trend, and manicurist Gina did

a beautiful job. Lastly, stylist Stacy did special

occasion makeup using Mac products.

Position: Art Director

My personal style is: I’m a jeans and T-shirt guy at

heart, but I’ve been known to get a little bit fancy

every now and then.

Holy grail beauty product: SPF 20 face lotion

Most embarrassing style from the past: Baggy

jeans, silk dress shirts, and sweater vests

Style icon: James Dean—he kept it simple and hip.

I feel the most attractive when: I’m confident. It

doesn’t matter what you’re wearing—just own it!

Why did you want a change? I thought maybe

I would change my hairstyle a bit, but I stayed

with the faux “mullhawk”—that’s a faux hawk

but with a little bit of the “party” portion of a

mullet mixed in.

What bothered you most about your old look?

My beard was getting out of control.

What was your first impression of your new

look? So fresh and so clean.

Now that you’ve gotten used to it, what

do you think? It wasn’t as drastic of a “new

look,” so I’m stoked to keep the look going!

What’s the biggest thing that you’re

taking away from the experience? It

feels fantastic to treat yourself every now

and then to a full grooming experience

instead of just rushing through it every

other day.

Ray Burgess

Position: Graphic Designer

My personal style is: Clean

and presentable. For me, it’s

more important to be the

person in the room who’s easy

to approach, not the most

eye-catching.

Holy grail beauty

product: Blind

Barber 30 Proof

Styling Cream

Most embarrassing

style from the past:

In high school, my

clothing choices served

as evidence toward the

existence of time travel.

During my sophomore

year, I somehow got it in

my head to rock a Fedora

and pocket watch.

Style icon: I don’t really

have one, unless the style

of about 70% of all average

American men counts.

I feel the most

attractive when: I’ve

just gotten my hair cut,

in the time between leaving

the barber and when the job

is left to my untrained hands

again the next day.

Why did you want a change? I

believe that a healthy change

every now and then keeps

things interesting.

What bothered you most

about your old look? I’d had

my goatee for nearly four

years, so it was time to change

things up.

What was your first

impression of your new look?

It was different! I suddenly

had a jawline again after many

years of hiding it. For the entire

day afterwards, I felt like a

stranger was staring back at

me in the mirror.

Now that you’ve gotten used

to it, what do you think? I

like it a lot. I used to have a

pretty severe baby face when

I first started growing out the

goatee, so I was relieved to see

that I look more my age now.

9 Beauty Makeovers

What’s the biggest thing that you’re taking away

from the experience? While I’m not the kind of

guy to make a big hullabaloo about his looks, it

never hurts to get treated to something nicer than

just a safety razor and a comb every once in awhile.

LV Lemus has been a barber for five years and

which specializes in men’s cuts, shaves, hand and

foot treatments, and waxing.

What makes your salon unique? We cater to our

clients, providing an experience—not just a service.

What are your top hair care tips?

• Shampoo and condition every other day.

• Comb hair from scalp to ends.

• Avoid products containing alcohol.

What are your 3 favorite tools or products?

1. BaByliss cordless clipper, trimmer, and electric

shaver

2. Straight razor

3. Leave-in conditioner

What’s your style motto? Details make a

difference.

What the makeovers entailed: Ray: I gave him

a medium skin fade with a spiked, textured look

on top. I also performed a premium shave, which

includes cleansing of the skin, face exfoliation, and

a black mask that pulled out all of his blackheads.

Gary: I gave him a mohawk with a burst fade. He

came in with two weeks’ worth of growth on his

beard, and we decided to shave it completely

down, which left his face nice and smooth.

Why: Ray: Ray has a fun personality, so the spiked,

textured look fit him very well. We decided on a

bald fade to add more dimension to the haircut.

The premium shave that I performed left his skin

soft and radiant.

Gary: We decided on the mohawk look for Gary,

because he said he tried a similar look before and

really liked it. I added the burst fade because it’s

not a typical fade that you can just go in anywhere

and ask for. It’s more common in the barber

community, but if you’re going into a salon, they

most likely wouldn’t know what it is. After shaving

his beard growth, we knocked off five years of age!

Megan Wiskus-Lim

Position: Editor-in-Chief

My personal style is: Casual, comfortable, and

colorful with a funky, feminine flair.

Holy grail beauty product: Besame Red Lipstick

1920 and CoverGirl Smoothers Concealer Stick

Most embarrassing style from the past: Zebra

highlights and a mushroom/bowl cut

Style icon: Taylor Swift—her look is polished and

pretty with just enough edginess, and her lip color

is always on point.

I feel the most attractive when: I’m well-rested,

have worked out, am fed but not full, and am

wearing a new piece of clothing.

Why did you want a change? After having a baby

in June, I’ve done zero self-care; the opportunity

to get glammed up for a day sounded heavenly.

What bothered you most about your old look?

My hair was overly bleached, badly damaged, and

in dire need of some help.

What was your first impression of your new

look? My hair felt a million times healthier, more

natural looking, and appropriate for my age and

life stage. Though the makeup and outfit were

different from my day-to-day style, it was fun to

switch it up and see the pros work their magic.

Now that you’ve gotten used to it, what do

you think? It’s weird to not be platinum blonde

anymore, but I’m officially a fan of having darker

hair. It’s also easy to manage.

What’s the biggest thing that you’re taking

away from the experience? Invest in your hair—

it’s not a time to cut corners. At Halo, they were

super thorough in asking questions about my

previous hair experiences and really listened to

my concerns and what I wanted, ensuring I felt

comfortable and confident in their abilities. The

result was a relaxing, fun-filled day—and a new

look that I love!

Debbie Newell-Juhos

Position: Independent Sales Representative

My personal style is: Fashion with a flair

Holy grail beauty product: Tiger's Eye Clay Soap

Most embarrassing style from the past: I was a

hair model in a show and they gave me an awful

perm and bob haircut.

Style icon: Amal Clooney, because she always

looks fabulous in diamonds or denim.

I feel the most attractive when: I’m having a

great hair day.

Why did you want a change? I wanted to be

current for 2020, because it’s a new era.

What bothered you most about your old

look? My hair needed some love, shaping,

and a great new color.

What was your first impression of your

new look? Wow! The makeup was over-thetop

fabulous, and I fell in love with my hair

again. It was so healthy. I loved the color and

the high- and low-lights.

Now that you’ve gotten used to it, what

do you think? It’s here to stay!

What’s the biggest thing that you’re

taking away from the experience?

You have to be open to change if

you want to stay current.

Halo Salon & Day Spa—owned by Alexis Reynolds, who has been a stylist for

20 years—specializes in color, specialty coloring (balayage, ombre, babylights),

cuts, blowouts, styling, extensions, waxing, nails, and skin care/spa services.

What makes your salon unique? We are always continuing our education and

staying up-to-date on the top trends. We also feel it’s important to give every

guest an amazing experience.

What are your top hair care tips?

• At-home hair care is a must when you get your hair professionally colored; it’s

important to take home the styling products used at the salon to help create

the same look.

• If you use heat on your hair, it’s important to use a good heat protectant.

• Don’t wash your hair every day, as it can strip your color and natural oils;

instead, use a dry shampoo in between washes.

What are your 3 favorite tools or products?

1. Pureology is my favorite! It has an anti-fade complex that keeps color from

fading. Nano is another favorite; it restores the hair and makes it feel super

soft.

4. Pureology Style + Care Smoothing Styler

5. Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo and Conditioner

What the makeovers entailed: Megan: We brightened her hairline with a few

babylight foils of blonde, and then gave her depth using Redken’s Shades Eq

gloss to lowlight and root her. We protected her hair with Olaplex, added into

the hair color. For her cut, we gave her a fun “lob” (a long bob) with added

texture. For the style, we gave her soft, beachy waves with a large curling iron

and finished the look by spraying Pureology Wind Tossed Texture Finishing

Spray. Then, we waxed her brows. For her makeup, we used the new Jane

Iredale Beyond Matte Liquid Foundation and added some eyelashes and a pop

of color to bring out her blue eyes. For her outfit, we put her in a fun cotton

mid-length skirt from Terra Cottage in Roseville.

Debbie: We deepened her color while adding a mixture of balayage and

hand-painted techniques to brighten her up. We decided a warmer caramel

tone would look great with her skin, and for her cut, we just took a little bit off

because she wanted to keep it longer. For her layers, we did a fun technique

that gives a modern shag look that can be styled the way she was used to

doing, with soft bangs in the front. After a voluminous blowout, we used

Pureology large curling iron to give her soft curls and finished her look with

Pureology Soft Finish Hairspray. For her makeup, we used the same foundation

from Jane Iredale, eyelashes, and a mixture of browns and golds to create a

soft, smoky eye. She also wore a top from Terra Cottage.

Why: Megan: We gave her a rooted look, because she’s a new mom and when

the color grows out she won’t feel like she needs to get her hair done as often

as she did before (when she was super blonde). We wanted to add the darker

lowlights to give her depth and dimension, and we used a cool toner to knock

out some of the brassiness that she had going on in her hair.

Debbie: She felt her hair was dry and damaged, so we deepened her base color

and added caramel-toned highlights to complement her olive skin tone.

9 Beauty Makeovers

Sidney Dorris

Position: Sales and Marketing Administrator

My personal style is: Simple and comfortable, but

still trendy

Holy grail beauty product: L’Oreal True Match

Foundation

Most embarrassing style from the past: Neoncolored

skinny jeans

Style icon: Ariana Grande or Rihanna. They both

have the ability to make simple clothing pieces like

a sweatshirt look stylish and super cute.

I feel the most attractive when: My hair and

makeup are both done, and I have a cute outfit on.

Why did you want a change? I wanted to start

2020 off by taking a risk and living life; and I’d never

dyed my hair before.

What bothered you most about your old look? I

wanted to look more mature.

What was your first impression of your new look?

I absolutely loved it; it was everything and more of

what I wanted.

Now that you’ve gotten used to it, what do you

think? I want more, especially when I see it in the

sunlight. Even though it was a very subtle change, it

was the push I needed to set this year off right!

What’s the biggest thing that you’re taking away

from the experience? I should try to be more of a

risk-taker. I typically am scared of taking risks and

overthink everything. This is the first time I let go

and trusted someone outside of myself when it

came to my physical appearance.

BEFORE

Makeover by Lisa Harter Hair and

Make-up Artist

111 W Main Street, Grass Valley, 530-559-7292,

lisamharter.com

Lisa Harter is an on-location, independent hair and

makeup artist who specializes in wedding and photo

shoot hair and makeup. For this makeover, she worked

out of Bang! Hair Salon.

What makes you unique? My natural aesthetic. Most brides don’t want heavy

makeup; they want to look like themselves (but better!) on their wedding day,

and they come to me because that’s what I do. My brides don’t all look the

same and there aren’t dramatic “before and afters” where you can’t believe

it’s the same person. My brides look like themselves—just a more glam or

polished version.

What are your top hair care tips?

• Don’t wash your hair every day! Most people do this, which strips the hair of its

natural oils. Try to go two to four days between washes.

• If you aren’t washing every day, you’ll also be able to go longer between heat

styling your hair. Use heat tools as little as possible to promote health and

growth.

• Have fun with your hair! Whether that’s changing up the cut or color, or just

learning different ways to style. Braids and hair accessories are very in-themoment

and easy ways to change up your look.

What are your 3 favorite products or tools?

1. An airbrush machine for applying foundation

2. ghd flat iron

3. One-inch curling iron

What is your style motto? Your hair and makeup should work for you by

accentuating your unique beauty and putting emphasis on your best features—

not covering up or changing you.

What the makeover entailed: I used a custom color mix of Pravana’s

permanent vivid line to achieve Sidney’s desire for a subtle burgundy/plum

ombré. For her makeup, we went with a slightly more glam look than she

would typically wear for a weekday. I used airbrush foundation to even out her

complexion and added some contouring highlight and blush. For her eyes, I

used dark browns and blacks to add depth and a pop of glittery champagne

pink to her lid before finishing with winged liner and false lashes. Then, I

defined her brows and added a custom mix for her lip color. After rinsing out

her hair color, I gave her a trim and used a 1.25-inch curling iron to give her a

modern, soft wave. Then I used Kenra Professional Platinum Dry Texture Spray

6 to give her some grit and texture to add to that modern look.

Why: Based on our consultation, I chose a subtle plum tone that shows

up a lot when the light hits it but is much more understated when indoors,

which is what Sidney preferred. We also wanted to avoid using bleach on her

naturally dark hair, but her natural base was a beautiful tone already that

really complemented the plum. She won’t need to touch up her base every

four-to-six weeks, so it’s very low-maintenance. I trimmed the ends off her

hair, because she wanted to keep her length, and styled it smooth with modern

waves. For her makeup, I wanted to do something glam and sexy, so I chose

tones that would go with the plum tones in her hair. She has amazing skin and

features, so we just emphasized those!

Emily Peter

BEFORE

Position: Associate Editor

My personal style is: Casual and simple. I love to

experiment with chic and vintage styles though!

Holy grail beauty product: CoverGirl LashBlast

Volume Mascara

Most embarrassing style from the past: Etnies

shoes with the overly padded tongue circa 2003—

the ones you just slipped on and didn’t tie, even

though they had laces.

Style icon: Mindy Kaling, because she’s always

accentuating her natural beauty.

I feel the most attractive when: My outfit is

completely pulled together. I tend to live in jeans,

sweaters or sweatshirts, and Converse, so when I

can build an outfit with a pattern or pop of color

and accent it with jewelry and a fashionable shoe, I

feel confident.

Why did you want a change? I was recently

married and have nothing in the future stopping

me from experimenting with my look. I’ve always

been willing to color my hair, but I’ve never gone

totally blonde.

What bothered you most about your old look? I

was just bored with it.

What was your first impression of your new look?

I was surprised! I think I can pull off blonde pretty

well. I was impressed with the dimension of color,

too—it wasn’t all the same color but had lighter

and darker shades of blonde throughout.

Now that you’ve gotten used to it, what do you

think? I love having a change, because hair will

always grow back. I’m really digging my lighter hair

with my natural brown eyebrows—I’ve always been

a fan of that contrast.

What’s the biggest thing that you’re taking

away from the experience? Self-care is

important. I tend to put it off because

of time, but the two hours I spent

with Noëlle were wonderful.

It was enjoyable to have

someone take care of me

for a bit and give me a

beautiful new version of

myself.

9 Beauty Makeovers

Tara Mendanha

Position: Deputy Editor

My personal style is: Erratic—sometimes bold,

sometimes understated

Holy grail beauty product: Rosewater toner

Most embarrassing style from the past: I feel like

everything I did in my teens was embarrassing!

Style icon: Someone I know who has similar hair to

mine, because she knows how to wear and flaunt

it. It’s the confidence she exudes that captivates

me; I hope to wear my own hair with confidence

from now on.

I feel the most attractive when: I have clear skin

(it’s been a challenge in my adulthood) and a good

hair day. Bouncy, shiny, perfect curls make me

happy.

Why did you want a change? I’ve looked pretty

much the same for the past 33 years. I’ve never

colored or treated my hair or done anything radical

to my appearance. Post-baby, I wanted to feel like

something other than a weary mom going through

the motions. Having always struggled with my hair,

I thought it would be nice to show it some love,

since it’s only been pulled back as of late.

What was your first impression of your new look?

“Wow! Color!” I love color in general.

Now that you’ve gotten used to it, what do you

think? I’m going to do it again. And again.

What’s the biggest thing that you’re taking away

from the experience? It’s OK to put yourself first

sometimes. I left the baby at home with my

husband for four hours and just enjoyed the

process—hardly ever thinking about what

was going on at home. It was rejuvenating.

Makeovers by Theory Hair Studio

3300 Coach Lane, Suite B8, Cameron Park, 530-

748-5279, facebook.com/theoryhair

Noëlle Pollastrini has a decade of hairstyling

experience under her belt. She opened her salon,

Theory Hair Studio, which specializes in current colors,

extensions, and haircuts, in October 2018.

What makes your salon unique? I work very hard to gain the respect of

my clients and create a space where they feel comfortable and like family.

I strive to attend ongoing classes to create current styles and use the

newest methods and techniques in the industry. I pride myself in allowing

clients to receive excellent service and unmatched attention—all at an

affordable cost.

What are your top hair care tips?

• Always, always, always use a thermal protectant.

• Make sure the products you use at home are keeping up the

maintenance of the color and style you were given in the salon.

• Always get your trims!

What are your 3 favorite tools or products?

1. Moroccanoil Treatment Light

2. Davines This Is A Shimmering Mist

3. Davines Nounou Shampoo

What’s your style motto? No ego, just great hair.

What the makeovers entailed: Emily: I did a full weave on Emily using

Redken Flash Lift with bonder, and then toned her hair. We did a slightly

50 stylemg.com | JANUARY 2020 | /stylemg /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags

angled cut and added layers for volume and interest. Then, we styled her

hair with a one-inch barrel wand before finishing it off with Davines This Is

A Shimmering Mist.

Tara: I created a warmer look for Tara with foils around her face. She had

virgin hair, so we didn’t want to introduce any lightener to it, since I would

be able to lift it to the desired color with a higher volume developer. I

cleaned up her A-line cut and added a different angle of layers on her to

complement the color.

Why: Emily: We chose this color and style for Emily because she wanted to

brighten up her hair and bring some shine back into it.

Tara: Since Tara’s texture is curly and coarse, I just finished it off with a curl

cream and slightly diffused it. She wanted a low-maintenance color, and

these warmer tones have a better grow out, being a demi-color.

integrates each system in the body together. She also

looks at environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors

For Dr. Marvi Montano-Ip, caring for the community she lives in is good

for her and good for her patients.

“Folsom is a wonderful place to live and work,” Dr. Montano-Ip says.

“Being able to care for the families that live here is truly special.”

Dr. Montano-Ip is so ingrained in the community that her French Bulldog, Slate,

has become something of a celebrity, featured in the pages of Style Magazine!

As part of Mercy Medical Group, Dr. Montano-Ip provides pediatric care for

newborns through adolescents. She views her role as a partner with families,

offering support at each stage of childhood.

“My care philosophy is rooted in communication,” Dr. Montano-Ip explains. “I

believe in being open with my patients and their parents, and listening to their

concerns.”

Dr. Montano-Ip also stresses the importance of prevention and believes good

nutrition, regular activity and plenty of sleep can make a big difference for

What’s Next

in Wellness?

19 Trends to Try in 2020

by KOURTNEY JASON

(e.g., effective communication).”—Philippe

Goldin, PhD, Director of the Clinically

Applied Affective Neuroscience Laboratory,

Associate Professor at Betty Irene Moore

School of Nursing at the University of

California Davis

“There’s a general trend toward healthy

eating, avoiding allergens, additives/

preservatives, and alcohol. [In regards

to the latter], people are

increasingly seeking

non-alcoholic

alternatives

(mocktails or zeroproof

drinks) to

their beverages,

which include but

are not limited to

alcohol-free beers,

kombucha, teas,

and seltzers.”—Shideh

Chinichian, MD, Family Medicine

at Mercy Medical Group

TRY Brew Dr. Happiness Kombucha,

Athletic Brewing Co. Run Wild Non-

Alcoholic IPA, and DRY Sparkling Soda

CBD oil, meditation, self-care, and pre- and probiotic foods—

these trends exploded in 2019. What will make health

headlines in 2020? We consulted local experts to get their

input on the latest and greatest when it comes to wellness.

“The mito/keto food plan is a lowglycemic

load, anti-inflammatory [diet] that

emphasizes healthy fats, nuts, seeds, oils,

non-starchy vegetables, a low amount of

low-glycemic-load fruits like berries, and

modest amounts of protein from diverse

healthy sources. High carbohydratecontaining

foods, including grains, are

limited. This plan, in general, is designed to

improve insulin signaling, inflammation,

body composition, and overall cellular

resilience, and is the best food plan to

support healthy brain function.”—Eric

Hassid, MD, ABOIM, ABAARM, FMNM,

Associate Medical Director at Sutter

Institute for Health & Healing

“There is increasing interest in using

virtual reality and augmented reality

tools in combination with natural language

processing to teach cognitive skills and

social skills to prevent and/or reduce

mental problems like anxiety, and enhance

emotion regulation and interpersonal skills

“Intermittent fasting regimens are

designed to enhance cellular repair, cellular

resilience, metabolic and hormonal health,

body composition, and overall wellness.

Three very common intermittent fasting

regimens include time-restricted feeding

(consume all food within an eight-hour

period, like 10 a.m.-6 p.m.); weekly fast day

(once a week, try to consume no more

than 25% of your typical daily caloric intake

while keeping well-hydrated); and fasting

mimicking diet (this program follows 1,100

kcals day one, 800-900 kcals day two, 500-

600 kcals day three, 800-900 kcals day

four, and 1,100 kcals day five).”—Eric Hassid,

MD, ABOIM, ABAARM, FMNM, Associate

Medical Director at Sutter Institute for

Health & Healing

“Health coaches will play a prominent

role in the future of health care delivery.

While most of us know what we ‘should’

be doing to take care of ourselves, making

changes in our nutrition, stress levels, sleep,

etc., is difficult to enact and sustain. This is

where health coaches come in. They help

us to identify what’s important to us and

how to put those things in place, even when

we feel stuck or discouraged.”—Maxine

Barish-Wreden, MD, ABIHM, Co-Director of

the Sutter Institute for Health & Healing

“High-fiber diets can help with lowering

cholesterol and common GI issues. [We

recommend] staying away from processed

foods and encourage whole grains to be

included in low-carb diets, as whole grains

are rich in fiber. A high-fiber diet consists

of 25 grams for women and 35 grams

for men.”—Tarandeep Kaur, MD, Marshall

Family Medicine in El Dorado Hills

“Health systems have increasingly robust

electronic health record systems

(EHRs) that typically include electronic

portals (including smartphone applications),

which allow patients to interact with their

health care system and providers more

efficiently. Not only can appointments be

made, but [patients can also] view bills,

receive test results, and message providers.”

—Charles McDonnell, MD, FACR, Radiologist,

Sutter Imaging, Sutter Medical Foundation

“More consumers

are using flour

alternatives in

their cooking, such

as almond flour and

coconut flour, and

flours made from

fruits and vegetables.

These are especially

ideal for people who

adhere to gluten-free or

flexitarian diets.”—Shideh

“Two diets boasting the best nutritionally

sound eating style for healthy aging,

weight loss, and reducing illness are the

Mediterranean diet (MD) and the low-carb

ketogenic diet (KD). Both diets have strong

similarities and recommend eating lots

of leafy greens, olive oil, avocado, nuts,

and berries. The difference between the

two is that most MD plans focus less on

animal meat for protein and more on eggs,

fish, grains, and legumes, whereas the

KD focuses more on any type of animal

meat for protein and restricts most grains,

(the plasma) into the skin. Studies show that

PRP can be a safe and effective hair loss

treatment. PRP may also speed up wound

healing. Additionally, PRP is well-known as a

‘vampire facial,’ which is gaining interest as a

treatment for cosmetic skin rejuvenation.”—

Oma Agbai, MD, Assistant Professor of

Dermatology and Director of Multicultural

Dermatology and Hair Disorders Clinic at

UC Davis Health

“Plant-based foods and proteins

(including protein powder and vegan

protein bars) are also on the rise. Since soy

is found to be a known allergen, non-soy

options are gaining more popularity, such

as beans, hempseed, and other plant-based

alternatives.”—Shideh Chinichian, MD,

Family Medicine at Mercy Medical Group.

TRY Cado Non-Dairy Deep Dark

legumes, and high-sugar carbohydrates.

Both diets have shown a reduction in blood

sugar levels, blood pressure, and body fat. I

predict the next big thing will be a blend of

these two diets, which I call the Mediterraketo

eating style, by taking the best

parts of each diet, reducing processed

food intake, and minimizing the foods

that negatively affect our planet.”—Paula

Hendricks, Co-Founder and Nutrition and

Wellness Consultant at Hendricks for Health

“There are multiple services that allow

consumers to check their own genetic

factors, and people are using medical

providers to make what is going on in

their body—their genetic tendency—to be

more visible. [With that information], we can

prepare personalized food plans, exercise

plans, sleep plans, etc. [utilizing] technology.

Healthy diets can be different, depending

on who you are. For frail, elderly people,

middle-aged people with weight issues,

children, those with celiac disease, and

others, medicine is evolving to the level of

‘personalized medicine.’”—Miki Purnell,

MD, Integrative Health Physician at Sutter

Institute for Health & Healing

“The integration of cancer genetics

and genomics has become increasingly

relevant to the practice of oncology as we

move to more personalized approaches

to cancer screening, risk assessment,

cancer prevention, and targeted therapy.

For example, there’s a trend toward

personalized cancer screening based on

risk stratification (genetic testing), which is

resulting in more patients being identified

as high risk.”— Kristie Bobolis, MD, Medical

Oncologist, Sutter Cancer Center at Sutter

Roseville Medical Center

“Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a threestep

process that involves drawing a small

amount of your blood, placing your blood

into a machine that separates it into parts,

and then injecting one part of your blood

“There’s been increasing interest in price

transparency within state and federal

legislatures as well as a recent executive

order by President Trump. The concept

is that increased price transparency with

regard to shoppable services will lower

health care costs through competition.”—

Charles McDonnell, MD, FACR, Radiologist,

Sutter Imaging, Sutter Medical Foundation

“I’m a strong advocate for using convenient

ways to interact with my patients, like

email and telephone and video visits. We

know patients appreciate having these

options. Many of our patients use video

visits to have a face-to-face conversation

with their doctors. This year, our

researchers studied this trend and found

that nine out of 10 Kaiser Permanente

members who had a video visit with

a primary care physician were happy

with the care they received and reported

feeling that their health needs were met.”—

Angelica Ha, MD, Pediatrician and Assistant

Physician-in-Chief for Technology, Kaiser

Permanente Medical Group

“There is growing use of ketamine to

treat major depression rapidly prior to the

activation of serotonin in the brain, which

usually takes up to one month after starting

a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor

or serotonin–norepinephrine reuptake

inhibitor.” —Philippe Goldin, PhD, Director of

the Clinically Applied Affective Neuroscience

Laboratory, Associate Professor at Betty Irene

“The development and use of online or

smartphone delivered digital therapeutic

programs based on cognitive behavioral

therapy and mindfulness meditation

techniques will increase among people

who cannot afford psychotherapy, who are

on a waiting list for therapy, or who live in

remote regions where there is no quality

psychotherapy.” —Philippe Goldin, PhD,

Director of the Clinically Applied Affective

Neuroscience Laboratory, Associate Professor

at Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at the

University of California Davis

“Nut and seed

use of peptides to drive the regenerative

antiaging process). Each of these therapies

All the Rage

2020 Design Forecast by KERRIE L. KELLY

Each year, fashion inevitably leaves a strong impression upon the design

industry and its offerings for the season. For 2020, the vibe is made up

of authentic handmade and sustainable organic details paired with the

sparkle of a ’70s disco club and luxurious, velvety softness of the ’80s. But

beyond the nostalgic hints that those artistic impressions carry, what lies

ahead for interiors? How will we change and evolve in our home environment? Read on

and see what speaks to your design style as we welcome a new year.

GO GREEN

Lately, many manufacturers, designers, and

architects have focused their products and

projects on a sustainable, environmentally

friendly, recycled approach. Thanks to

modern technology and innovations,

however, eco-friendly doesn’t mean

inferior quality, comfort, or design; in fact,

these products celebrate green versions

of modern or traditional designs in both

elevated and affordable versions. While

products like cork flooring may have

been long forgotten, they’ll see a strong

comeback this season thanks to their

natural characteristics.

FLOWER POWER

The traditional beauty of floral patterns,

either abstracted or straight-up chintz,

will continue to be the pattern to use,

especially when paired with deep,

luxurious velvets and maximalist-styled

spaces. But home designer beware: Chintz

can be tricky. Its bold, old-fashioned prints

can easily turn to frilly English bed-and-

breakfast if you're not careful. When done

right, however, the floral theme can add

color, texture, and just the right touch of

classic elegance to your interior.

HANDMADE ACCENTS

Items made by hand using sustainable

materials like jute, rice paper, and clay

will be all the rage this year. These elements

go far in grounding a home, allowing its

inhabitants to be in touch with the earth

and their roots. The incorporation of natural

materials popular years ago—like caning,

rope, seagrass, and bamboo—has a

strong and easily incorporated influence

over modern furniture silhouettes and décor

details such as occasional pieces, area rugs,

and wall coverings. Elaborately embossed

wall coverings, like gold rivets and metallic

accents, give surfaces a beautiful tactile

sensation and modern ambiance.

MATERIAL GIRL

The rising awareness and social

consciousness related to ecological

challenges threatening our planet have

influenced the design industry to produce

products accordingly. Plastics are being

used for indoor and outdoor furniture

frames while water bottles are being used

to create outdoor rugs and accents. For

a more luxe look, acrylic products are

having a comeback too, giving a room the

architectural structure it needs without

taking up visual real estate. Acrylic is seen

as a unique foundational piece in a small

space, like an entryway or sitting area, to

provide a surface that can be layered with

more organic items and not feel fussy.

RICHLY RETRO

The early rise of digitally printed fabrics

has created a true appreciation for real

embroidery, thick wool bouclés, linens,

and other artisan-inspired elements.

Rich textural expressions are the

theme of the upcoming season—think

velvet upholstery, hemp drapery,

cork walls, wicker, and jute—and

have us thinking opulent and organic

when it comes to furniture and finishes.

Speaking of furniture, classic pieces will be

re-envisioned with retro elements and new

materials.

MAXIMAL ARTWORK

The surge of minimalism and Scandinavian

design, characterized by neutral colors

and simple materials, is finally declining.

In its place, bright colors and graphic

patterns are becoming more prevalent

in the home. Don’t be afraid to mix colors,

patterns, and textures. Take a gallery wall to

the next level by having it cover an entire

wall, or add a dramatic, large-scale

piece to your space. In this case, more is

more.

MAGICALLY METALLIC

Sparkle is still on the design scene for living

room décor compositions. Adding a hint of

disco glamour and luxury by introducing

bronze, gold, and chrome metallic

details through decorative accents,

furniture inlays, hardware, lighting, mirrors,

and accessories is right on point with the

mood of modern interiors.

Kerrie L. Kelly, FASID, is an awardwinning

interior designer, author,

product developer, and multimedia

consultant helping brands reach

the interior design community. To

Dining Out

Residents of El Dorado Hills and the

surrounding communities have something new

to explore when hunger hits. A trio of local,

already established restaurants have added

locations in the El Dorado Hills Town Center—

Chando’s Cantina, Brickyard Counter & Bar, and

Thai Paradise—elevating the already food-filled

destination to an even tastier level.

Chando’s Cantina

Capitalizing on the success of his beloved businesses—or

as Chando himself calls them “my babies”—the bold

owner has opened a second Chando’s Cantina (the first is

in Downtown Sacramento). “I want to bring regional street

food to my customers,” Chando told me, “… simple street

preparations that showcase the ingredients. When I started,

I didn’t even want burritos,” he lamented, “but my customers

(and staff) pleaded with me to put them on the menu!”

I took Chando up on his regional philosophy, ordering

something I’d never seen, nor heard of, prior to my visit: tlayuda

(lie-oo-da) from the Oaxaca region of Mexico. I was more than

pleasantly surprised, as were the diners at the next table when

I offered to share the massive Mexican pizza. It was actually a

large, crispy tortilla with a layer of black bean purée, quesillo

oaxaqueño (a semi-hard white cheese), avocado, tomato, cabbage,

and salsa. I took the advice of my server, Astrid, and ordered mine

with asada (steak). This leads me to another of Chando’s beliefs:

“We want our flavors to stand out and not be masked by too many

competing ingredients.” The asada (and their other proteins)

substantiated this principal.

I followed with gorditas—fried “chubby” tortillas made into

“sandwiches” filled with carnitas, lettuce, queso fresca, crema,

and salsa. Each bite of the deep-fried discs brought joy to my

companion as she exclaimed, “Finally, someone makes gorditas

like we had as kids!” Stop in and try Chando’s Cantina for

something a little different yet familiar.

Brickyard

Counter & Bar

Next on my list of recent transplants

was Brickyard Counter & Bar.

Where else in EDH can you grab a casual

bite, listen to live music (on Thursdays

and Saturdays), and have a craft beer?

Brickyard’s new locale—with 16 regularly

rotating taps and popular live music acts—

gives you all of those options and more.

I stopped in one evening recently

for a “light meal” and started with the

honey chipotle wings. Lightly coated in

honey and chipotle seasoning, they were

very tame (you can always add heat at

the table) and not too sweet, which can

be a concern when ordering anything

that starts with “honey.” Kudos to my

bartender for the recommendation, and

note to self: When in doubt, bartenders

always know best.

I was debating post-wings between

going full-on carnivore with some BBQ

or adding a salad to the mix. I went salad…

Front: Honey Chipotle Wings

Back: Spinach Bacon Salad

with bacon…and shrimp—sort of carnivore light. The

spinach bacon salad (add shrimp) did the trick, and I felt

positively healthy after crushing the pile of fresh baby

greens. The health benefits may have been short-lived

but not in vain, as the hard-boiled egg, feta, red onions,

mushrooms, and warm bacon vinaigrette allowed me to

deviate from my BBQ fixation without missing a beat. In

all seriousness, it was a deliciously satisfying salad. But

don’t worry, I’ll be back for the BBQ, beers, and music—and

so should you.

Platinum Wine Lounge // If you’re a fan of wine, craft beer, and scratch-made food, your next dining destination

or date night should be at Platinum Wine Lounge in Roseville. Not only does it feature all of the above, but it also has modern, stylish

environs, along with top-notch customer service. When it comes to the wine list, choose from bubbles, rosés, reds, and whites—from

both wineries near (Amador County, Lodi, Sierra Foothills) and far (France, Tuscany, New Zealand). If you can’t decide, try a flight and

choose three! I went with the “Fill in the Blanc” and enjoyed a few new-to-me selections. My helpful server made some suggestions

based upon my palate’s preference and all were wines I’d easily order again. I love a good Charcuterie Board and again, with

the help of my waitress, I built an almost-too-pretty-to-eat spread with brie, white cheddar, chive havarti, hand-selected meats, and a

variety of crackers, plus dried fruit and marinated olives. They also offer salads made with local produce, fresh-pressed paninis, crispy

flatbreads, and other shareables. Dessert? Yes! Order the Brown Butter Cake that's topped with sliced pears, vanilla ice cream,

caramel, and sliced almonds; trust me, it’s even better than it sounds. If you love the wine you’re drinking, you can buy a bottle (or two)

to take home and pay winery prices. They also have a wine membership, which means special bottles to members only and discounts

throughout the year. Check their website for upcoming events that run the gamut from live music and art shows to paint nights. 9050

5 Beans We Love

If there’s one thing that’s going to help you survive—and thrive—this year, it’s coffee. But

forget Folgers: Locally roasted beans are the best part of waking up. Read on for some of

our favorites, plus easy but effective home-brewing tips. —Compiled by Megan Wiskus

Anadem

Signature Blend

PRICE $14

PURCHASE: Kingdom

Coffee Roasters,

305 Iron Point Road,

Folsom, 916-287-0240,

kingdomcoffeeroasters.

com

TASTING NOTES: This

well-rounded blend

highlights the subtle

nuance yet big flavors

that coffee has to offer. It’s

deeply fruited with notes

of chocolate and nougat

plus a rich, sweet finish.

COFFEE-BREWING TIPS:

• Use only filtered water.

• Make sure your water is hot

(traditionally between 195-205

degrees).

• Grind fresh before brewing.

Oh My Darling

Blend

PRICE $16

PURCHASE: Clementine

Coffee Bar, 813 Sutter

Street, Suite G,

Folsom, 760-331-773,

clementinecoffee.com

TASTING NOTES:

An organic blend of

beans from Peru and

Guatemala, it’s full of

chocolate and nutty

undertones, flavors of

caramel, cinnamon, and

almond, with a sparkling

acidity and lasting body.

COFFEE-BREWING TIPS:

• Always use fresh, whole bean

coffee; pre-ground coffee only

lasts a few days.

• Invest in a burr grinder;

uniform grind and size makes a

huge difference.

• Measure in grams. For a pour

over, start with 21 grams of

coffee and 300 grams of water.

Ethiopia Gugi

PRICE $17.95

PURCHASE: World Traveler

Coffee Roasters, 106

North Sunrise Avenue,

Suite C7, Roseville; 603

East Bidwell Street, Suite

A, Folsom, 916-212-3177,

worldtravelercoffee.com

TASTING NOTES: A light

and refreshing naturally

processed coffee with a

fruit-forward profile and

flavors of apricot, grape,

and mandarin. It’s ideal

for lazy afternoons and

weekends where a great

sipping coffee is called for.

COFFEE-BREWING TIPS:

• Choose fresh beans to capture

the true flavor of the brew;

the longer the beans sit on

the shelf, the quicker they lose

complexity, flavor, and aroma.

• Coffee starts to degrade 15

seconds after you grind it, so

best results come from freshroasted

and fresh-ground

beans.

• Store beans in an airtight,

stainless steel, double-walled

coffee container that has a Co2

valve on the lid and where

you can set the date when

purchased.

Organic

Guatemala

PRICE $14

PURCHASE: Totem

Coffee Co., 312 Main

Street, Suite 104,

Placerville, 530-903-3280,

totemcoffeeroasters.com

TASTING NOTES: These

beans come from a small

farm in Guatemala called

Finca El Tambor, where

producer Victor Calderon—

a fifth-generation coffee

grower—uses organic

and biodynamic practices

alongside environmental

stewardship and social

equity. The coffee itself

exhibits notes of milk

chocolate, caramel,

almond, and plum.

COFFEE-BREWING TIPS:

• Use filtered water and heat to

about 200 degrees.

• Store beans in an airtight

container, out of sunlight, and

at room temperature; never

refrigerate or freeze them.

• Measure coffee by weight, not

volume, to get proper brewing

ratios.

Guatemala Finca

La Chucita

PRICE $17

PURCHASE: Mast Coffee,

Rocklin, 916-751-8694,

mastcoffeeco.com

TASTING NOTES: This

Guatemalan coffee is

beloved for its complex

sweetness, balance, and

round body. It appeals

to the everyman, as well

as the discerning coffee

drinker and tastes of milk

chocolate with a hint of

raspberry on the finish.

COFFEE-BREWING TIPS:

• The right ratio is paramount.

We recommend 16 parts water

to 1 part coffee (a scale is the

easiest way to perfect this

every time).

• Use a grinder to ensure a

consistent grind size; we love

the line of burr grinders made

by Baratza.

• Use good soft water (35-

85ppm). This is usually the

culprit if you can’t get your

coffee to taste like the pros.
