Who’s Been Snooped?

Where Luxury and Style Collide!

Well folks, I think we just experienced the trip that Dorothy took on the way to the Land of Oz. The farmlands managed to keep the top layer of soil in place for this year’s corn and all the flooded signs are taken down. It is the first day of May and there is still a breeze outside, but Mt. Diablo has clear skies all around so it looks like we are actually going to launch right into the high temperatures with summer lurking around the corner. What a great time to look in on a local business that can create that “new you” for the season.
I must say, I was pretty excited to get this assignment because a few months ago I stopped in my favorite Starbucks in Discovery Bay and my coffee was compliments of this wonderful new business in the Safeway shopping center called Lux and Blvd. And having a real love for spending time at the salon, it was even more intriguing.
I will start by saying, the moment you get your first glimpse of this place from the parking lot, you feel like you are somewhere on Rodeo Drive. It is fresh, sparkling, welcoming and beautiful and you haven’t even gotten in the front door. Now I am sure that most of our readers need to at least maintain a regular hair cut, and probably a large percentage enjoy a full service salon, so please, tear out this page and on your next trip down Hwy 4, stop in an see this place for yourself.
I do so like to put my experiences in my own words, but, they truly say it best on their promotional material and ads. And I quote “Defining beauty with style. Be bold! Be daring! Be simply beautiful! Where luxury and style collide on the boulevard!” WOW!!! The moment you walk in the door, you are on a journey of a real salon experience that feels as though it was created just for you.
With a large staff that they call the “Dream Team” you can enjoy all the amenities of a full service salon and spa. Hair services include cut, color, retexture (I love this) utilizing the highest quality professional products. They also have make-up artists that will teach you the simple basic techniques for an every-day look to the most glamorous you that you have ever met! While there, you can get a real professional massage, like the one designed just for fibromyalgia, have your nails done, enjoy a relaxing facial and even remove all that unwanted hair by waxing. Did I mention they also have tanning available? Now the kicker, not only do they have hairstylists, they have a real barber. Ten extra points. They attribute their expertise to ongoing education and teamwork. You can experience this as soon as you walk in.
At my age, we used to just ask someone at the grocery store whose hair looked great and was similar to what you might wear as to where they got their hair done. Now with social media you can get all the scoop from lots of customers and get a feel about their business before you walk in the door. AMAZING!!!! website with lots of info “colliding” with tons of class.
So, Lisa & Craig Baker, owners of Lux & Blvd., this secret shopper is blown away (get it?) by your professionalism, charm, character and above all customer service and gives you twenty bubbles for bringing this gem to East Contra Costa County. Who will be snooped next, it could be you.
Lux & Blvd. is located at 2465 Discovery Bay Blvd. Suite 202 in Discovery Bay and can be reached at 925-679-4111.
