The Hair Bar: Drop In, Blow Out

Posted by    |    March 12th, 2012 at 3:02 pm

If you’re out and about in Southlake these days, there isn’t any excuse for having flat, lifeless hair.  The Hair Bar recently opened its doors to Southlake residents, and the Dragon ladies’ coiffures are all the better for it.

All blowouts at The Hair Bar are $35.00, and if you need your make-up done beautifully they do that, too.  It’s classic blow dry service at its finest; you’re offered a tasty,  complimentary beverage upon arrival, and then your designated stylist goes through the iPad visual library to choose the style you’ve been looking for.  If you don’t see one, you can request a custom style and they will try their darnedest to make it come to life.

Though not an entirely new concept, the salon is the brainchild of Gina Ginsburg and Shelley O’Neal, both beauties with hair you’d swap your Birkin for. Besides the menu of blowout styles, you can opt for hair extensions, an up-do, or a house call when you’re too busy (probably shooting your reality show,) to drop by the salon.

If you already know you’ll be a regular, a monthly membership will save you money.   $125 per month secures four blowouts or $65 per month for two, plus a protein shot or neck and scalp massage of your choice.  I know which one I’m going with!

Oh, and need a creative gift idea? Blowouts make an excellent gift for birthdays, baby showers, pre-wedding festivities, anniversaries, you get the picture. The Hair Bar offers an assortment of packages for your budget.  I personally giggled when I saw this package: The Blogasm is $750 (saves $160) and gives you 24 blowouts, plus one free. You  get one free blowout to give to a friend, relative, or keep for yourself. That blows me away.

It’s a mile-a-minute world these days, so the convenience of a stellar blowout that doesn’t take all day is a valuable commodity. Whether you live in Southlake or you’re dropping by for a spin around Town Center, stop in the Hair Bar to get your mane looking marvelous.

Take a “Me Day” in Dallas

Posted by    |    November 7th, 2011 at 11:50 am

Everyone deserves at least one day out of the year to pamper themselves. Whether it’s a full body massage or just a pedicure, a “me day” is often well-deserved. Dallas is full of destinations to make your “me day” excursion. Two of my favorites are the Exhale Spa at the Hotel Palomar and Hotel ZaZa’s ZaSpa

The ZaSpa, located within the chic, boutique hotel, is the perfect place to unwind. Take the elevator up to the second floor, walk among the walls lined with vintage Hollywood photographs and make your way into the ZaSpa. Relax in the unique decor of the Chill Room before being escorted into one of six treatment rooms.

One of my favorite parts of the ZaSpa is their weekly deals. I recently utilized the Tanning for $20 Thursday and left looking like I’d just spent Spring Break in Cabo (without the tan lines). My tan was impeccable and lasted throughout the weekend. Book your appointment in advance for your personal SunFX airbrush and keep your eye out for other ZaSpa deals including Talk Me Up Tuesday (receive any 50 minute treatment for $60 for simply “liking” Hotel Zaza on Facebook and mentioning a special code mentioned on their page), Waxing Wednesday, and Face-Off Friday.

I’ve already raved about the magic that is Core Fusion, but that was merely a sampling of all the incredible offers at Exhale Spa. This urban, wellbeing spa has a killer location next to the Hotel Palomar on Mockingbird and offers everything from spa therapies and acupuncture to yoga and Body Enlightening. They also offer  hair removal from the specialists at Completely Bare. Choose from professional waxing as well as permanent laser hair removal using an intense pulsed light source (IPL) which painlessly and effectively delivers results. They even offer a free laser hair removal consultation. Also on the menu is the highly exotic (at least to me) vajeweling with Swarovski crystals. I mean, why not?

Take a “me day”, bronze yourself into a goddess, whip yourself into shape, achieve a flawless complexion and smooth skin and even vajewel yourself if the mood strikes you.

If you’re one of those people who seems to be in a constant battle with their chapped lips, I can commiserate. Every time I would walk into a CVS I would try something new. From Blistex to Aquaphor, Burt’s Bees to Supergoop, my lips were soothed but nothing was truly solving the problem. My lips’ savior came in the form of a perfectly chic little sphere: eos smooth spheres.


Put Your Best Face Forward with Clarisonic

Posted by    |    July 13th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

Your skin is a beautiful thing, and you want to keep it a beautiful thing. We’ve all been guilty of it (I know I have), we go to bed with our makeup on or simply glob on some nightly cream before passing out, but the first and most important step to any nightly ritual should always be cleansing. As a devoted user for almost a year, I can honestly say nothing cleanses skin better than the Clarisonic.

At the risk of sounding like an ad for a vacuum cleaner, let me first start by saying that yes, the Clarisonic is affective at cleaning but it’s also incredibly chic. I have the Mia (the little guy) in turquoise and it has quickly moved up the ranks as one of my most cherished possessions. It looks cool sitting on my vanity and it really, truly works.
