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.
Nail Finiti's hand and foot specialists pamper clients' hardworking digits with beautifying nail treatments. Soften pavement pounders with a deluxe spa pedicure, which packs a soothing combination of exfoliation and massage together with a foot mask, paraffin wax, and cucumber heel-therapy and sea-salt treatments in addition to standard pedi-care, including cuticle and nail shaping and a coat of nail polish. To pair their keyboard tappers with newly revamped feet, clients also receive either a standard manicure or a Shellac application, which coats nails in a chip-resistant polish with zero dry time using special UV-lamp technology. A complimentary snack and beverage keeps the internal organs from getting jealous of the limb-coddling services and releasing all the stomach's butterflies back into the wild.
Luxury Nails anoints evolved paws with soothing and beautifying embellishments in a cozy atmosphere. Ease into a swanky throne and kick back as a skilled artisan flourishes feet with dapper polish and soothes via caress to complete the spa pedicure ($35). The spa manicure ($20) rouses mournful mitts from daily chores like scrubbing the fish tank or massaging backyard saplings, all via a fresh paint coat and glossy glaze. The friendly staff at Luxury Nails offers a vast improvement on boiling nails actually drawn from a solar flare with a pink-and-white set of solar nails ($45), and a paraffin-wax hand treatment ($5) keeps skin soft, supple, and ready for an extended stay at Madame Tussauds.
The Gallery Salon Day Spa provides its clients with an array of services designed to keep bodies pliable and pulchritudinous.

If it's your noggin that needs professional help, instead use this Groupon toward $80 worth of hair services. Cuts ($35–$65 for men, $40–$75 for women) from the scissorly savants at The Gallery turn straggly head threads into natural targets for glamorous spy-plane photos, while color treatments ($60) open up new hue horizons free of the noxious odors of spray paint. Hair styling for special events ($65–$95) gives blushing brides, red-carpet strutters, and gala gate-crashers the follicular radiance to outshine even the most polished hors d’oeuvres platters.
Avallon Salon & Day Spa has a service for practically any beauty need. Want to hydrate and nourish skin? In that case, take your pick from the salon's array of signature body treatments.

There's also a sea mud pack, a sugar scrub, and a Power Pack of soymilk and oatmeal to choose from—and those are just the body treatments.

Stylists adorn clients with these and more-natural, sun-kissed looks during highlights and color treatments. Color also winds its way into mani-pedis, where nail techs groom and top digits with vibrant polish.
