Be the first to receive treatments from celebrity artists fresh off the set of working with Lady Gaga or Lea Michele—all in the comfort of your own home or hotel room.

(July 24, 2014) – Busy, hard-working professionals shouldn’t have to sacrifice beauty or luxury just because they can’t make it to the salon. Since 2009 Hair Room Service, brainchild of celebrity hair stylist Michael Dueñas, was the solution to that very dilemma–but only in New York and Los Angeles. Today HAIR ROOM SERVICE launches for the first time ever in Las Vegas, NV and Orange County, CA. Additionally, HAIR ROOM SERVICE will expand its presence in Los Angeles, adding five talented new artists as well as an exciting new service: at-home airbrush tanning. All services are offered by Dueñas’s talented team of celebrity artists who have literally just stepped off set with a celebrity, straight to your front door.

Mobile airbrush tanning is an entirely new service to HAIR ROOM SERVICE, and will also be available in Orange County, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas along with in-room hairstylists and makeup artists. In addition to this, HAIR ROOM SERVICE in Las Vegas will offer in-room manicures and waxing.

And now, with a newly-revamped website, clients can easily navigate a veritable who’s-who of celebrity artists. With an easy-to-use, point-and-click process, a top of the line celebrity artist will be at the door of your home, hotel room, or office. All the artists on Hair Room Service’s roster have worked with some of today’s top celebs including Sex and the City’s Kim Cattrall, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, and Lea Michelle (to name a few).

Exciting additions to the teams in Los Angeles, Orange County and Las Vegas include:
•Orange County: Christina Culinski is now a 15 year veteran of the beauty biz. She has done it all! Whether it be TV, Advertising or Film Christina’s helpful demeanor is an asset to any set. Her recent work keying for the film fest favorite, Marriage of Inconvenience, is making waves within the circuit. But Christina is no stranger to the red carpet, readying celebrities for such events as the Golden Globes, Oscars, Emmy’s and Grammy’s.

•Los Angeles: Marlu Soria’s accomplishments include commercials, television, film, red carpet, print, special FX, and web. Her resume includes prestigious companies such as Disney, Vonage, Volkswagen, and luminary Dr. Oz. Marlu is also a hairstylist capable of smooth styles and glamorous updos, to big, sexy curls.

•Las Vegas: Maria Garay has quickly built a clientele after starting off as a nail technician in a local salon. She has worked with clients from Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, and Rihanna to name a few and her drive to continue in this field is inspired by the everyday women who wants to feel good and look beautiful.
