A full line of Bumble and bumble. products works as Lisa’s sidekick in creating new hairdos for men, women, teens, and children. In addition, the stylist uses scissors to shear unwanted length and a kaleidoscope of dyes to color strands with all-over hues, highlights, or lowlights. She also offers texturizing services, uncurling locks with Japanese straighteners, smoothing frizzy manes with Brazilian Blowouts, and creating permanent waves that leave clients ready for a day at the beach or a date with a pool noodle.
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.
Candlelit rooms create a temporary sanctuary from life's daily stresses at The Lux Day Spa. The spa's therapists tackle pain with a variety of techniques, using deep-tissue pressures to break up adhesions and heated stones to relax tense muscles. There's even a special prenatal massage to help expectant mothers find relief from aches and discomfort. But massage isn't all the spa offers; exfoliating wraps and UV-free spray tans headline a long list of beautifying treatments.
At the Tanning Spa, staff members harness King Midas?s gilded touch with custom airbrushing, Mystic spray tans, and a slew of UV beds. Sessions take place in private treatment rooms, fully stocked with chilled or heated aromatherapy towels, bathrobes, and Bose speakers for blasting favorite tunes or bingo calls. The spa?s automated Mystic booth spritzes bodies with a skin-dimming blend of aloe vera, DHA, and optional bronzer, or custom hues come courtesy of trained airbrush techs and Infinity Sun formula. For UV veneers, a diverse collection of tanning beds, including the Magic 636, swaddles upright or prone clients in bulbs culled from the sun's tulip fields.
The specialists, nurses, and program managers at Doctor's Weight Clinic prove to clients that losing weight is never too lofty of a goal through the clinic's individually tailored weight-loss programs based on each person's physical health and target weight. After meeting privately with a weight-loss specialist to devise a plan of action, clients embark on the journey to a slimmer silhouette with the help of nutritional supplements, appetite suppressants, and fat-burning injections, which include lipotropic compounds and B vitamins that help stimulate the metabolism. In order to maximize the effectiveness of their plan, clients should follow a well-balanced diet and exercise regularly.
Inside this modern salon and spa, staffers reinvigorate clients' hairstyles and moods with precision haircuts and spa services such as facials, mani-pedis, and massages bolstered with essential oils. Perfectionists when it comes to hair, stylists finish precision haircuts with a dry-cutting technique, which gives them optimum control over the final look without spiking hairspray with super glue. They commence worry-free hair visits with a stress-melting scalp massage and conclude with a styling session, during which they teach clients how to re-create looks with Paul Mitchell products.
