Remember what I said about people being more than what you first think or see. Well, today is about explaining that just a bit more. You may think as a young woman with a physical disability in a wheelchair that I’m plain, sickly, unkempt, and boring. Trust me when I tell you that though I might not be a great beauty I’m none of these things. I’m very girly and I love beauty and fashion. Recently, I discovered, though I’m sure it’s not a surprise to some people, that I’m much higher maintenance than I’d like.
In an effort to dispel misconceptions I’m going to tell you about one of my favorite places…Salon David Escape Spa! Yep, you read right, my salon is one of my favorite places. I’m sure that sounds vain, but the simple truth is it’s not. I’m a girl like any other girl. Which means, and I’m not trying to stereotype here, I like to feel pretty and I think sometimes I deserve to feel that way!
So let me tell you some of the reasons…let's say 10…why I love it there.
v It’s a cell phone free zone! That means for the hour…or four that you’re in there no one can get to you. Not your job, husband, wife, kids, bill collectors, no body!
v Its full service! Hair, nails, skin, massage all in one place. Come in one person leave a more relaxed new one.
v They’re friendly! I’ve been going there the better part of six years and never once as anyone been rude, snide, or condescending. Something that, in my experience can’t be said for all places. In fact, they only times I haven’t gone were when there were literally no excess room in the budget. I much prefer to just wait, When there was I came straight back!
v They’re experienced and professional! If something isn’t going to look right they will tell you. Not once have I seen anyone walk out of there looking a fool. In fact, I’m always left feeling more refreshed and confident than when I entered.
v They’re adventurous! You want zebra print nails or blue extensions? They’re up for that. More polished or refined….they do that too!
v They know their clients! No clue what color you want for your nails or what color highlights will look best? They know you so they’ll point you in the right direction…no pressure. First visit? No worries. That’s what the consultation is for.
v The coffee is awesome! I don’t know what it is about that machine, but it must be magic. Go and have George make you a…on second thought…nope…I’m keeping that delicious secret to myself. Prefer wine? They have that too.
v They specialize and believe in teamwork! From what I can tell, everyone there is really expert at something! They all can do just about everything, but say what you want on a visit isn’t the particular strong point of your stylist or tech, They’re more than willing to put you in the hands of the person who excels at that…No one walks out looking a fool!
v It’s got great atmosphere! When I first started going there it had a very Zen like feeling. Now, I think it has a bit of a rock & roll feels to it. Though, I’m not sure if that’s David’s intention. Either way you feel really cocooned in this place removed from all the hassle, and stress outside.
v It’s totally reasonable! Have you priced out beauty services lately? Geez! For the atmosphere and quality of service it’s beyond worth it.
Finding a salon is like anything else. It’s about finding a place where you feel welcome and comfortable, where you enjoy the experience and the people. I wouldn’t trust my hair or my face to any place else. In fact, anytime in the last 6 yrs I’ve tried…all sorts of wrong.
