Although one of the city’s newer salons, LUX Lounge in downtown Turlock is already making a name for itself as a business that offers clients the finest hair, skin, nail and other cosmetic services — all in one spot.
“We offer a wide variety of services,” said owner Katie Zaccheo. “Our salon is brand new and high end with a small town feel and inviting atmosphere.”
Zaccheo said she decided to open LUX Lounge in September after she realized there was no “one stop shop” type salon where clients could go for all their styling needs.
“I wanted the community to have somewhere to come get everything done at once, somewhere for the whole family to make a day out of,” said Zaccheo. “Being a one stop shop is very convenient and the atmosphere is very inviting and comfortable.”
At LUX Lounge, clients can look like they spent the whole day relaxing in the sun without having to leave their home or office by taking advantage of the salon’s tanning beds, which are all equipped with maximum bronzing and energy efficient bulbs, MP3 players and internal fans to keep them cool.
The salon also helps clients make the best first impression with LED teeth whitening in 15-minute or 30-minute sessions—both of which are done in a zero gravity massage chair. For the month of October, the salon is offering a 30-minute teeth whitening and one month unlimited tanning special for $99 and a 15-minute teeth whitening and two-week unlimited tanning special for $65.
“All services are very competitively priced as we offer the lowest rates in town while still maintaining top-of-the-line quality,” said Zaccheo.
Salon offerings don’t end there as LUX Lounge also provides traditional barber and hairdressing services, including hot towel straight razor shaves, haircuts, and special event styling, as well as esthetician services, including three different kinds of organic facials and all organic spray tans.
Clients can also get work done at the salon’s brow bar, pamper themselves with full waxing services, have their nails done by an on-staff acrylic technician, or get eyelash extensions.
“I love the fact we can help people feel good about themselves,” said Zaccheo. “When you look good, you feel good, and when you feel good, positive things happen.”
Since its opening in September, Zaccheo said LUX Lounge has received nothing but positive feedback from customers who voice their approval of the salon’s comfortable atmosphere, professionalism, and top-notch services.
“LUX Lounge has already been extremely successful in just over 30 days and I am so appreciative of everyone that has contributed to making my dreams come true within our salon,” said Zaccheo. “The name says it all and that’s exactly what I wanted.”
LUX Lounge is located at 223 S. Golden State Boulevard, Suite 1 in Turlock. The salon is open from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call 427-2300.
