The stylists, skin soothers, massage therapists, and nail and makeup artists at Lavish Hair Salon & 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.

The staff at Hair Majesty treats clients like royalty, crowning scalps with colorful new arrangements of strands or invisibly lengthening manes with extensions. Brazilian blowouts smooth out curls and combat frizz, and nail services keep fingertips regally outfitted.
Maximum Image customizes its aromatherapy massage to fit your needs snugly like a pair of warm leather pants. One of their skilled licensed massage therapists will knead and karate chop wherever stress cinderblocks are lodged in your muscles, coupling each motion with awakening, rejuvenating scents such as lavender, oranges, and bacon. Properly reduced to putty, you'll then experience the soothing reflexology massage. By pressing at precise nerve points throughout the hands and feet that correspond directly to certain organs and functions of the body, your therapist will help stimulate depressed, depleted, or downright shy portions of your body and bestow you with a more whole sense of well-being.
