Hey Loves! I’ve decided to add a new feature to my blog and we’re calling it: Fat Positive Sacramento! In these features I’ll introduce you Loves to businesses that are not only accepting of fat bodies but don’t shame them in anyway shape or form. I’ll discuss accessibility, how I was treated, what service I bought or was provided for so on. This is my way of letting plus bodies know that these businesses respect your body and that’s where you should be spending those fat dollars 😉
So in this first feature of Fat Postive Sacramento I wanted to introduce you all the amazing woman owned salon that is Galore Studios !!
Now first off I discovered Galore Studios in a casting call looking for promo models to shoot for media advertising – I LOVE that when I reached out and asked if they wanted to work with a plus model the immediate answer was a huge resounding YES! After shooting with this business I went back to try out a full set of gel nails and have kept coming back!
Accessibility: open parking lot, no stairs, open floor plan so you won’t feel cramped or stuffed in anywhere. The waxing services take place in their own room separate from the main display room. I’m a size 20 and the chairs all fit me comfortably.
I have uberly sensitive nail beds, acrylic tends to rip them up and leave behind only layers of nail so when Marie (the amazing owner) told me she only deals in full gel… Well, I was in heaven. And as we got to chatting we began to talk about her business and how she wants to be apart of the body positive community and truly offer services that most salons scoff at when a fat body is asking for them.
I’m talking they offer:
Full Gel Sets
Makeup selection shopping
Want to shop with friends – they’ve got you by offering a makeup service party!
They literally do it all!! And what’s even better is that they want to work with All Walks Of Life! LGBTQ+ , Fat Bodies, Disabled Bodies… essentially if you’ve got a body, a decent attitude, and some money to book a service then yes, they want to work with you.
This beautiful salon is located at 3811 Florin Rd #4, Sacramento, CA 95823
Stay tuned, I’ll be filming a waxing service and facial with Galore soon!!
Until next time,
