Hair Loft's experienced salon artists enhance hairdos with a menagerie of cut and color services fueled by Paul Mitchell products. The precision cut kicks off as skilled hands wash expectant follicles in a cleansing shampoo treatment. A five-minute massage stimulates scalps as much as a tale of a legendary fountain of hats, and a wet cut trims down lengthy and rebellious hairs to sculpt coiffure personalized to the wishes of each patron. Banished water retreats at the behest of a blow dryer before a final dry cut frames faces by allowing the stylist to see what the finished hair masterpiece will look like in headshots and Play-Doh busts.
The stylists, skin soothers, massage therapists, and nail and makeup artists at Lavish Salon and Day Spa have seen their fair share of media buzz. So has owner, master stylist, and senior Goldwell hair-color educator Samantha Murguia, whose color-correction skills found themselves under the spotlight on ModernSalon.com. In 2010, OCFamily.com editor Susan Belknapp blogged that not only was her Brazilian Blowout with Murguia "a relaxing, fast-moving treatment," but also that she found the result to be "fantastic." Murguia and her team have also been featured multiple times in Inland Empire Magazine and, in 2011, graced CBS’s list of LA’s Best Blow-Drys.
Perhaps the high praise is a result of the expertise with which Murguia's crew performs their services. Or perhaps it’s the fact that they keep a close eye on the latest youthful trends. The staff includes a teen blogger who has her finger on the pulse of the beauty industry, and the salon has been accepting donations of gently used dresses, shoes, and accessories to help girls attend the prom in style. They have even offered teen makeup tutorials that explain how to complement natural facial features and use a smartphone’s blush-administering app.
Headaches. Sciatica. Muscle spasms. Fatigue. At Rhoe Chiropractic, these bodily aches—as well as many others—can be quelled by a full slate of holistic treatments. The staff specializes in spinal manipulations, acupuncture, and massage styles such as sports and reflexology.
