The laid-back, fun-loving mentality of SoCal surf culture pervades Spa Samudra & Hair Lounge. Kids and pets walk freely throughout the premises as shoppers peruse the organic skincare line, made from wholesome, all-natural ingredients. Spa Samudra, however, seamlessly balances this surfer charm with the staples of a traditional day spa. Its organic skincare products, for example, are used in classic facials, which include steam cleans, exfoliation, and optional extractions. The aesthetic team also brightens faces with peels and soothes feet with detox footbaths. In addition, the 11 hairstylists at the up-and-coming hair salon pamper strands with an array of haircuts, color, and smoothing Brazilian Blowouts.

A few hairs may be the difference between a youthful look and a less-youthful one, and aesthetician Kelley Lefebvre wants to close that gap. She uses expert brow-shaping treatments to design arches that seemingly lift the eyes, just as her permanent makeup applications bring flattering color to eyelids and lips. She can even add a beauty mark to your face, saving you the trouble of taping a blueberry to your cheek every morning. Her waxing treatments aren't limited to brows, either—she can clear unwanted hair from the chin, legs, and underarms, among other areas.
Her seven years of work in the beauty industry have also left her with ample skincare skills. Her services range from a 30-minute mini-facial—complete with steam, exfoliation, and moisturizer—to multiple types of chemical peels.
