The studio at Javier's Hair Salon and Day Spa strikes a bold visual impression, what with the black-leather styling chairs, brushed-metal accents, and a natural-wood floor that resembles wave-washed sand—all set against a blue wall. This artistic statement mirrors the approach of Javier Campos and his team—including stylist Pamela Coder— who style women's, men's, and children's hair with salon services such as haircuts, coloring, and keratin smoothing treatments. The staff's expertise further extends to aesthetic and spa services, such as facials, mani-pedis, waxing, and massage.
Started as a single Newport Beach clinic in 1971, Lindora was the brainchild of Dr. Marshall Stamper, who was motivated by the unfortunate loss of his mother due to weight-related complications. Now, more than 40 years later, Lindora's weight-loss programs continue to bestow humanoids with a plethora of personalized nutrition plans and private one-on-one health consultations. At each Lindora location, medically trained teams of health-care professionals guide patients through lab work, health assessments, and exams to discern the most efficient trajectory into better health. Patients receive encouragement to adjust their lifestyle and behavior, and bellies stay buoyed by nutrition support and menu plans that spotlight fresh, balanced meals.
Long-term weight maintenance is the goal of the clinic's medically based programs, which means patients needn't worry about extra pounds boomeranging back into their lives like a persistent pet chinchilla. Check the FAQs page here for more information about Lindora's approach to weight loss.
Ornate chandeliers, handsome wood hutches, and a vintage mirror set over a fireplace dress up the 1920s tudor home that serves as The Wax Lounge’s headquarters. But behind all that beauty lies a highly educated staff, including a salon biochemist who draws on a background in biological engineering and cosmetic chemistry to formulate many of the in-house products. That combination of style and substance permeates a menu of more than 250 services, including facials that firm sagging skin with microcurrent technology and Brazilian waxes made less daunting with the application of a special numbing cream. A lash specialist at the helm of the salon's GlitzLash Bar takes over where Mother Nature left off by dressing up peepers with extensions that call to mind pinup girls, burlesque stars, or the world's sexiest movie camels. Those looking to enhance their natural lash lines can try semipermanent mascara, which is formulated to be hypoallergenic, water resistant, and safe for pregnant women.
Kristen Burtt's friends have always loved her back rubs. "For some reason, I could always feel the muscles with my hands," she says. "They knew what to do." She took that as a sign and went to school to improve her muscle-kneading prowess. Today, she taps into her natural gifts and education as she lavishes her clients with Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massages. Her favorites are hot stone and lomi-lomi, a Hawaiian full-body massage that she gives with her forearms as clients recline on a bed of ukuleles.
Kristen keeps the lights dim and the music low as she kneads weary muscles within her private massage room, which she's outfitted in earthy browns, blacks, and mauves. She says that when she finishes each appointment, her clients emerged relaxed and focused. "I take the pains away so you can focus more on life," she says.
