Upon entry to the new salon at 379 Main Street in Malden, LUVA Hair and Day Spa’s guests are greeted into a bright reception area and by the equally bright smiles of co-owners Luiz Soares and Valquiria Comin. Also in front of guests is a large selection of service options, including hair, makeup, manicures and pedicures, facials, waxing, massages, and complete spa packages.
LUVA Hair and Day Spa opened in mid-March and operates Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It’s offering several deals for first time customers through September including 10 percent off coloring services, 20 percent off mani/pedi combos, $5 off any haircut, $10 off facials, and similar promotions.
LUVA welcomes customers by both scheduled appointments and walk-ins. Soares notes that the new sign out front welcoming customers in and offering such promotions is attracting passersby. “A woman who happened to miss her bus yesterday saw our sign and came in to get her hair done,” says Soares. “Before she left she made her next appointment.”
Its excellent location on busy Main Street in Malden’s Central Business District will help attract clientele to LUVA, as will its proximity to the Malden Center Station Orange Line. “This block is home to an eclectic mix of successful restaurants and small businesses,” said Greg Regazzini, VP, Director of Leasing at Combined Properties. Combined Properties owns 379 Main Street where LUVA is located, along with several other highly regarded clients including Fuloon Restaurant, Saigon Noodle, Cosmo’s Hair Styling, Fallou African Hair Braiding, Liberty Tax, and Wigs by Helen.
When discussing possible names for the salon, Soares began by listing in Portuguese a variety of items used daily in a spa. After writing many words he came upon luva, which means glove in Portuguese, and he liked the sound of it. “When I showed Val she said ‘I love it! LU-VA, for Luiz and Valquiria!’” said Soares. He hadn’t realized until that moment that LUVA is a combination of his and his partner’s first names. They agreed: LUVA was officially the salon’s name.
Soares and Comin, both Brazillian, are attracting a Brazilian client base but not exclusively. “We want everyone to feel welcome,” says Soares. “People should come to LUVA for a good atmosphere – somewhere they can feel homey, can talk and laugh.”
