Drybar Phoenix

Drybar Phoenix

Drybar’s new Phoenix location, near the Biltmore is a chic and cozy place to get your tresses styled to perfection. Needing some serious hairapy (Hair – Therapy) and just wanting to spoil myself a little I made an appointment at Drybar in Phoenix. From start to finish, the entire experience was stress-free and enjoyable. Not […]

Park Avenue Blow Dry and Beauty Bar

Park-Avenue-Blow-Dry

Whether seeking a full day of pampering or a quick treat, head to Park Avenue Blow Dry and Beauty Bar for a pick-me-up. With my stick-straight hair, styling my ‘do is a fairly simple task (please don’t hate me), which is why I never quite understood the appeal of going in for a blowout. But […]

Mane Attraction Salon

Mane-Attraction-Stations

Our Spa-Girl-in-the-field Olga surrendered her ponytail to the competent hands of Mane Attraction salon’s star cutter. Here’s her tale! I have a severe case of ponytail syndrome, I have never been motivated enough to do anything with my hair aside from sticking it in a ponytail because up until yesterday, I strongly believed that my […]

Desert Blossom Salon & Boutique

Blossom-boutique

I have a case of long-hair syndrome. I’ll be the first to admit it. After committing one of those “my life just changed drastically and so I need to change my hair just as much” faux pas and cutting my lower-back touching locks up to my shoulders, I went through a time where I couldn’t […]

Bravo Salon & Day Spa

We sent SpaGirl in the field Carolyn to Bravo for the much-touted Brazilian hair straightening process. We think her hair turned out super fab. But would she do it again? Here’s her behind-the-chair report. Upon my arrival at Bravo Salon, my hair was nothing short of a major disaster. As a natural brunette whose motto […]

The Spa at DC Ranch Village Health Club & Spa

5219_the-spa-at-dc-ranch-village-health-club-spa_1

First, let’s be clear. I’m no gym rat. I have a series of unsubstantiated fears that range from dropping a weight on my forehead to flying off the treadmill and ending up in a heap in front of some super jock. And in this particular joint, I also have a fear of looking fat. So […]

Salvador Calvano Hair

5052_salvador-calvano-hair_1

Oh God. I've become a Scottsdale snob. Not that anything's wrong with that, but when I parked my car outside of Salvador Calvano's Phoenix hair studio, I couldn't help thinking: Hope my car's still here when I get back. Touted as the stylist to the stars — his work has graced the covers of Glamour, […]

Sassoon Salon

Sassoon Salon Scottsale

We sent our secret Spa Girl in the field to check out Sassoon Salon in Scottsdale. Here's her report! My life is rather dull, so after most haircuts I'm typically headed to the grocery store or some other destination where good hair goes to waste. But this time, it's New Year's Eve and I've got […]

Salon Surreal

Saon-Surreal-Treatment-Room

We sent our intern and super sleuth Katie to Salon Surreal in Phoenix to follow up on rumors that not only were the stylists fabulous, but the aestheticians were too. Apparently, reports of their top-notch services have not been exaggerated! Here’s Katie’s report. Let me say first that I am not a “facial virgin.” I […]

Steven Paul Salon

4136_steven-paul-salon_1

I’ll get right to the point here: Very funky. Very cool. Awesome location. Best hair cut ever. I was introduced to Steven Paul Salon by a friend who I ran into one fateful day at a local card shop. I actually didn’t recognize her at first because she had gone from a brunette to a […]
