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.
The talented staff at Shear Indulgence Salon & Day Spa simultaneously fashions stylish outer appearances and fosters relaxed inner beings. A holistic client experience underlines the goals of every treatment in the loft-style salon, whether licensed stylists are whipping up glamorous hairdos with products from brands such as Kemon and Moroccanoil or massage therapists are relieving stiffness, soreness, and stress with focused bodywork. Aestheticians and skin technicians play their part as well, countering blemishes with a roster of nutrient-rich facials and lavishing bodies with scrubs, warm towels, and freedom from unwanted hairs and their statically attached balloon friends.
Cool sea breezes flit through the renovated manes of every client that steps out of Glance Beautique, a hip yet casual salon located blocks from the seashore. Inside the Carlsbad salon, Owner Alisa and her team of specialists breathe life into each client’s look, harnessing knowledge gleaned from years of experience and continued-education courses. They deploy salon products by Redken and Eufora, creating looks that range from beachy and bohemian to polished and professional. In addition, the pet-friendly salon prettifies its patrons with makeup, waxing, and skincare services, and is available for special event preparations, private events, or mid-bank-heist makeovers.
As the weather outside grows colder, Bella D’ora Spa rolls out the cookie dough—or, at least, the smell of baking cookies. The seasonal sugar-cookie massage incorporates a brown-sugar hand-and-foot scrub into a sweet-smelling massage. The staff also provide an equal level of pampering year-round through warm-stone massages, organic facials, and body wraps that work to rid skin of toxins that may have been absorbed during baths in the chemical vats at a local soft-drink factory. Clients can bundle services for spa parties or bridal parties, which come with optional hors d’oeuvres or lunch plates that easily sate high-noon cravings.
