Important News from Owner and Founder, Shawna Cruise

To our loyal guest,

I have been working diligently on an exciting growth plan for The Loft, which I anticipated sharing with you in the new year. Sometimes plans change, and in this case a big one did; the Escondido lease extension didn’t work out. As a result we have been asked to vacate our current space as of December 27!

My heart and soul will always be a part of our downtown community and so this has been a difficult and bittersweet decision. Alas, after 16 years on Grand Ave in Escondido, I am moving The Loft Hair Design & Skincare to La Costa.

Our need of a temporary location while our new space is being constructed posed certain challenges. Imagine 27 Lofties and 3000 of you (our loyal guests) without a home. Angels on our side, one of our retail partners, Unite Eurotherapy, a local company with a global brand, has graciously welcomed us into their former academy salon only 3 miles from our future home.

As of December 29th, we will be found at our new, temporary space at Unite.
Unite’s facility is at 1255 Keystone Way Suite 106, Vista, CA 92081

Directions from I-15 North & 78 (RB, Escondido, San Marcos)

I know this comes as a shock to a lot of you and believe me, not how I intended this transition would go down, so now is when we really need your support. Because Lofties are resilient, we are going to have some fun with this temporary location while continuing to bring you the service experience that you love. My team is working their buns off to make this as smooth as possible in the three weeks we have to plan it! I hope that you pull together with us in the interim digs because we can’t wait to show you our beautiful new space at La Costa Town Square.

Let me share a little more information about Unite Eurotherapy. The company is not only a great retail partner, but also an equally supportive education provider. You know that we Lofties believe in continuing education, so this opportunity with Unite is serendipitous. Please join us during our “semester abroad” with Unite EUROtherapy for the next 3 months. There will be oodles of cool things to offer you and opportunities to help us with freshening up our YouTube channel in Unite’s modern photography studio.

When we graduate and start our new journey at the La Costa Town Square, there will be a celebration for this milestone and we want you to come. We are so excited our cheeks hurt from grinning!

To ensure this is a smooth transition we are putting together directions and maps, fun gifts and great incentives, so stay tuned to your email and our website. We will also follow up with phone calls, as necessary.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me personally or ask any Loftie team member.

Thank you for your years of loyal support.

Off to our big adventure!

All that glitters is COPPER!

With the holidays approaching fast (and I mean FAST!), there’s much to do. Shopping, cooking, and of course glamming up for all those parties. And who doesn’t want to look their best for such occasions, especially visiting with distant relatives and maybe a hypercritical in-law or two.

Coppers, gold and burnt ambers are adorning eyes this festive season. Add a little shimmer and sparkle to your eyes with this hot trend. This look can be worn bold or barely there. Pair with a nude lip for a natural look or with a dramatic red or berry lip for runway ready glamour!


Holiday Copper Smokey Eye Makeup

A deep-bronzed shimmer is perfect for a smoky eye. Use different shades of the same color to create the look, and don’t be tempted to reach for black! We ALL know that can get messy.

A gorgeous light copper is a great color to play with. Add a bright aqua or plum to really make eyes POP! Keep lips nude to play up the lid color.  A lighter champagne hue works well on the more pale skin tones. Don’t be afraid to go bare with minimal mascara and liner. Let the shine do all the work.


Nude Lip Color With Copper Shimmer Eye Shadow

Some of my favorite shades are Amber Lights, Coppering, Expensive Pink, and Goldmine all available at your local MAC cosmetics counter.

Favorite eye shadow shades are Amber Lights, Coppering, Expensive Pink, and Goldmine

So, go bold or bare! Just dare to wear any or all of these flattering looks while out shopping for the perfect gifts or sipping your favorite holiday cocktail with your loved ones!

The Offer

Why We Love It

Pumpkin contains a lot of amazing properties that benefit the skin in many different ways

  • Increases epidermal & dermal hydration
  • Reduces the likelihood of acne breakouts
  • Stimulates production of collagen & elastin
  • Decreases fine lines and wrinkles
  • Lightens pigmentation
  • Provides anti-inflammatory & antioxidant benefits

How it Works

The treatment is relatively comfortable taking about 60 minutes.  When first applied to the face the Pumpkin Mask is warm, and then after a few minutes it changes to a pleasant feeling of tightening.

A series of six or more weekly treatments may be recommended

Kudos to Ashley McGrath for having worked hard and getting over the biggest hurdle in her career, completing our rigorous training course and becoming a Level 1 stylist! Next up is Marissa Banda, girl on fire, hitting her marks to be a Level 2 stylist. Also, much respect to Tiffany Townsend for pushing through the middle and heading for the big leagues, Level 2 to Level 3.
