WWR Article Summary (tl;dr) Female business ownership never looked so good!  At Heather Hart’s ultra-high end salon in Newport Beach, nothing is overlooked. Whether you want to sip champagne while getting a blowout, or pop a few chocolates while getting that pedicure, your wish will be granted. Hart even considered the comfort of her hair dressers who can end up standing for several hours during the day. For them, she installed padding under the wooden floors to ease the pressure on their feet.

Dozens of red roses float in a crystal vase. A gold-colored pedestal brims over with pastel macarons. Chocolate-covered almonds fill a glass jar.

“Would you like a glass of Champagne?” a woman asked a guest while pulling a chilled bottle of a French import from a silver ice bucket.

That consummate hostess is Heather Hart, and she’s not offering hors d’oeuvres or aperitifs in her Newport Beach home.

Rather, the women around her are getting their hair done.

The well-manicured Lavender Salon is Newport Beach’s latest “it” spot among locals looking for a fresh cut, color or style. The salon, which has a team of 14 stylists and seven blow-dry specialists, has been bustling since a soft opening in early April.

And what a salon it is. Hart is the mastermind behind the previously vacant space’s transformation in Castaway Commons into a fantasy palace of beauty, with an interior boasting an exuberant and elegant Parisian-themed design.

The opulence is not uncommon for Castaway Commons, a two-story, 34,500-square-foot building near the Costa Mesa border.

It currently has several high-end medical and dental tenants, including cosmetic surgeon Terry Dubrow, whose wife is a cast member on the reality TV show “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”

The building also has housed several restaurants, including The Arches.
