In an interview with the Long Beach Herald, Aura at the Beach Salon & Spa's owner Christopher Guardino characterized his business as a dream come true. A native of Long Island's south shore, Guardino relishes the chance to combine his enthusiasm for hairstyling with his love for the beach. Along with cutting, coloring, and teaching hair how to read, Guardino uses his 17 years of styling experience to help cancer survivors to regain their looks and confidence—there's a private room in the salon for those who wear hairpieces. Aside from hair services, the salon and spa offers a variety of beauty and relaxation treatments, including makeup application, waxing, massage, and facials.
Highly skilled in the art of personal pampering, the professionally trained staff at Joseph Christopher ensures guests achieve the inner and outer beauty they desire. Taking no exception to this mind-and-body beautification mantra, the salon's comprehensive wash, cut, and style fuses psychological refreshment with physiological rejuvenation. Skilled hands coddle craniums with a sudsy scalp massage and wash, lulling tired thinkers and tresses into a delightful peace of mind free of cowlick phobias. After a relaxing rinse, experienced stylists initiate a stress-relieving hand, neck and shoulder massage, loosening tightly wound heads for easier removal and styling. To round out the rejuvenating visit, hair connoisseurs cut and sculpt curls into masterful dome décor worthy of heads headed to scheduled wedding crashes, cocktail parties, and chance encounters with doubtful high-school gym teachers.
