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 skilled team at Karen Allen Aveda Salon & Spa cares for clients with skincare, hair, and nailcare services that promote inner and outer beauty in an atmosphere that celebrates wellness, diversity, and laughter. The salon operates under the Aveda umbrella, tending to clients with products known for their high-quality, plant-derived ingredients.

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.
Patrons strut from It's My Hair shaking manes bestowed with luxurious length and thickness by an arsenal of Remy hair extensions made from human hair, lace wigs, and hair-treatment elixirs. An experienced stylist with the eye of an artist matches clients’ locks with weaves of the same color and texture beneath walls hewn from textured gray stones. As patrons twirl in sleek black salon chairs like workaholic carousel operators, It's My Hair's team spiffs up locks in the glow of geometrically complex hanging lights.
The licensed aesthetician at Skin by Stevie specialized in manual, electrical, and chemical facials during her professional studies at the Salon Success Academy before earning her license from the California Board of Barbering and Cosmetology. Peels and facials ensure clients maintain a youthful glow despite a barrage of free radicals and airborne Splenda, whereas body wraps smooth out body topography. Other aesthetic services include teeth whitening, waxing, and makeup application.
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.
