Smoothing Treatments


As the temp heats up so does the frizz.  We all love summer, but summer doesn’t necessarily love our hair – heat and humidity create frizz and frustration!  If you are like most of us gals who flip through fashion mags mesmerized by models with voluptuous manes – or salivate at the sight of celebs with amazingly manageable, smooth, shiny hair that looks vibrant and bouncy all the time - even at the beach - you’re probably wondering: Why doesn’t my hair look like that?  Or – wow – I wish I had her hair – what does she know that I don’t???

Well, let me let you in on a little secret…If you think that all these goddesses were born with incredibly perfect Victoria Secret looking hair then think again – realistically speaking, only about 2% of the population were gifted at birth – the rest of us need help from products and services to make it appear like we were born that way.  So…I, your “Hairy” Godmother (sorry – cheesy – but couldn’t resist) am here to bestow you with your dream hair.  My team and I are at your disposal to share the professional secrets available to achieve the look that you (and me) are forever wanting to attain.  There are so many options, products and services – you just need the right people with the right answers who will take the time to customize a regimen that will be perfect for your hair.  Check out a few of our favorite services listed below.

And remember – at Lavish Color Salon we are always ahead of our game and on top of the latest and greatest trends, so schedule, relax and let us help you select the best options for your texture.  Cheers to beautiful, carefree manageable style --- bye-bye FRIZZ!

Guest Appreciation Day!

Stop And Let Me Praise You!

This Month Marks a Very Special Anniversary!

8 years ago, Lavish Color Salon opened its doors to the great people of Cleveland’s eastern suburbs.  After spending 14 years helping to develop other people’s talents at various other salons, I decided that it was time for me to open my own salon – the kind of place I had always dreamed of owning and nurturing.  The plan was to look for a group of like-minded stylists who put a high value on taking care of clients without any drama or judgment, and who are mainly interested in furthering their careers by constant growth and continuing education – a place where team members like, respect and trust one another – a place where you walk in the door and EVERYONE is genuinely glad to see you – an environment where team members praise one another and have each other’s backs instead of being jealous or envious – a place where the business of beauty is more about building great relationships and taking care of guest’s needs in a way that they have never experienced before.

Now, no one is perfect and I admit that we don’t get it right all of the time, but we are a forever work in progress – genuine and sincere, and we really do care about providing our guests with a most extraordinary experience.

Our journey has been an amazing one, and I would like to thank my family for their help and constant encouragement – all of our amazing and loyal clients – our supportive friends – and of course, Team Lavish who shares our passions and dreams, and makes our guests feel extra special every single day!

Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your lives – we truly appreciate you – and an extra big THANK YOU for allowing us the pleasure to continue to do what we LOVE to do!!!

Why I Love My Job!

People ask me all the time why I love my job so much and I always have all sorts of reasons depending on the day but today I was really thinking about it and I think its because I get to be creative and meet and talk with so many interesting people.Who could ever ask for anything more? I love it! 

One of my favorite things to do is really give someone a total transformation. The look in their eye and the smile on their face is always priceless. That is the moment I know I’ve really connected with someone and made her dream hair her new reality and to me that is the most exhilarating feeling in the world. I think I’m kind of addicted to it! 

I love to make people look and feel fabulous because it puts so much positivity into the world. When people feel good they do more good! What the world needs are a lot more people feeling good to do more good! I believe mean people just don’t feel that good and they should start doing little things that make them feel good. Like do something nice for someone else just because you will feel good. If you are feeling down give yourself the best pick me up there is. Go see a professional a professional hairstylist or colorist of course!

Some of the things I am getting most excited about in the world of hair and beauty right now are doing makeovers for moms. This is the time of year when so many moms or just women in general need a spring spruce up. If you have been thinking about a change or know someone that has been dreaming of a color change we have so many options to choose from in hair, make-up, or nails. 

As the weather warms up one of the most requested services we get at the salon is lightening up your hair. This is a great way to feel more youthful like you just took a stroll on the beach (even if you haven’t seen the sun since 2003). If you are looking for two super easy ways to give your self or someone you love an update.

Here they are…

 #1 Change up your lipstick or gloss shade. Quick easy and you will feel like a new women. Some of my summer favorites are Colour Lux Lip gloss in Wink and Beam. Blush Velvet lip pencil is a fastest way I know to add a pop of color to your lips this summer!


Oil-rich, intense hydration creates a luminous shine for youthful looking lips. Luxurious formula nourishes lips with deep conditioning oils, vitamins and antioxidants. Patented ant aging peptide restores lip tissue, boosts collagen and increases volume. Paraben-free, Gluten-free, Lead-free, Propylene-glycol-free.


Creamy, moisturizing lip pencil with fluid-like texture glides on creating a flawless satin finish with intense, long-wearing color. BERRY FLUX VITA ingredients preserve skin suppleness, elasticity and tone.

#2 Change your nail polish color. Nothing says I’m up to date with all things fashion like being in the know of the latest nail trends. Here are a few of my favorites.

Hello Hawaii Ya is my absolute summer favorite and I get compliments on it every time I wear it. I was even thinking about making it my signature color because I love it that much!


Leave it to the man that created the shoes that women faint over Christian LouBoutin to create this stunning new nail polish color & bottle. I’m in awe! I think this would be a great splurge gift for mother’s day or for you of course.

 Christian Louboutin The Pops Nail Color in Batignolles, $50,


Here are a few other nail options I thought you would enjoy .
