Monarch Beach, CA (PRWEB) May 08, 2012
The St. Regis Monarch Beach – one of California’s only Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond resorts – today announced the grand reopening of its salon, renamed The Salon at Spa Gaucin and redesigned to offer the ultimate in luxury salon services. Formerly operated by Vogue Salon, The Salon at Spa Gaucin now is managed by the unparalleled salon and spa experts behind the award-winning Spa Gaucin at The St. Regis Monarch Beach.
“While much of our industry has moved toward express blow-outs, mini color touch-ups and strip mall nail salons, we’ve found that our discerning clients are seeking a pampering, bespoke experience and a respite from their busy lives,” says St. Regis Monarch Beach Salon and Spa Gaucin Director Valory Reed. “At The Salon at Spa Gaucin, we are committed to delivering Southern California’s highest quality hair, nail and makeup services in an atmosphere of sophisticated yet relaxed and unhurried elegance.”
This innovative, return-to-luxury approach to salon services is attracting top regional and national talents to The Salon at Spa Gaucin, including Dennis Lee, Elizabeth Castillo and Lois Kinsey, all of whom bring with them impressive rosters of loyal, high-profile clients to the salon.

Known for both hair and makeup artistry, Castillo comes to The Salon at Spa Gaucin to serve her long-time clients, new local clientele and the resort’s valued guests. Available Fridays and Saturdays.
