The new, long-lasting, permanent body wave "digital perm" is finally here at Shinbi Salon! We're currently the only salon on the peninsula to offer this service. Call us for more details, 831-373-7919.

A digital perm is for someone: who has fine hair that needs volume and body, who has straight hair that needs movement in their hair, who has unmanageable and uneven waves in their hair that needs to be uniform, or who likes to curl their hair with a curling iron but doesn't want to damage the hair. A digital perm makes the wave most prominent when the hair is dry, and loose when it's wet. In addition, digital perms thermally recondition the hair so it often feels softer, smoother, and shinier after the perm. And it lasts from 8 months to a year!

Shinbi Salon is located at 421 Alvarado Street in Old Monterey.

Beginning in February 2017, Monterey Fire will be converting to a new, county-wide fire agency station numbering system to coincide with Monterey County Emergency Communications implementation of new computer aided dispatch software. Under the new system, every fire station in the county will have a unique number. (Phone numbers will remain unchanged.)

Stations will be numbered as follows:

Station 11: Downtown Monterey (600 Pacific Street)
Station 12: New Monterey (582 Hawthorne Street)
Station 13: North Monterey (401 Dela Vina Avenue)
Station 14: Pacific Grove (600 Pine Avenue)
Station 15: Carmel (6th Avenue between Mission and San Carlos)
Station 16: Monterey Airport (150 Olmsted Way)

Thanks to the City of Monterey for this information, originally published in their City Focus Newsletter.

On Sunday, January 15th, 2017, the latest concept in de-stressing and wellness arrived in Downtown Campbell. The Float Station had their grand opening with a ribbon cutting conducted by the Campbell Chamber of Commerce and a catered open house to introduce what they're all about to the local community.

The Float Station allows you to experience a relaxation treatment known as "floating" where you shut out the world around you and reset your senses by floating in a pod of water infused with 1200 pounds of high quality Epsom salt. A standard treatment lasts an hour.

You can find out more and schedule your first float on their website:
