So Fresh So Clean

I always seem to wait too long in-between hair appointments, and I can never figure out why. Because you always walk out afterwards feeling like you can take on the world. I was excited to visit Salon Dulay back in August for my first ever Shine Treatment (because this mane can take ALL the help it can get!), and was swooning over the beautiful space. You can find my Shine Treatment recap here which was back before they changed owners, and it was called Rizzieri Salon. 


The new owners have made the space even more beautiful, and added on some fun features like a complimentary hand massage with a color treatment and Chakra aromatherapy during the hair wash. I was pampered to say the least! I think it's safe to say I'm honored they asked me back for a full touch up color and haircut, and walked out feeling like a queen. Ok not THE queen. Is it that obvious I recently finished Season 4 of The Crown? If you haven't caught up - what are you waiting for? They finally made it to Princess Diana! 




How gorgeous is the hair washing room? I now want a wall like that in my bathroom! I was very impressed by their safety measures. Masks are mandatory, your temperature is taken at the door, lots of hand washing, and there were even dividers at the sinks in case you end up next to someone during the hair washing portion. I love seeing businesses stepping up and enforcing the right protocols to keep everyone safe while also being able to survive. It breaks my heart to see so many shops and restaurants going out of business. 




*Before the Magic*



If you were following along on my InstaStories, I mentioned that I ordered a festive coffee before arriving at the salon minus the calorie bomb. I was craving one of their Irish Cream Cold Brews, but my eyes bugged out that it has 14 grams of fat. Yikes! So, I ordered a blonde roast with a splash of skim and 2 pumps of Irish Cream syrup which totally hit the spot. If you're looking for more of a peppermint flavor you can sub in 2 pumps of peppermint syrup in place of the Irish Cream. Tastes like Christmas! 



I loved how there were things that remained the same since the name change such as the use of Aveda products, and the adorable hair dryers that hang from the ceiling. Less clutter on the stylist's station, and fun to watch when it's blow dry time! I was also treated to the same stylist as last time, and it didn't even feel like it had been 4 months since I had last seen her! 











The before and after shots side by side were a true eye opener. You know when you think you look cute, and then you realize you have been talking to people with food in your teeth or your hair has frizzed up without your knowledge. Yeah that's how I felt. I like to call the "before" look air dried chic. 


Since I had taken the day off to burn off some end of the year PTO, I met up with H for some lunch and we had a much needed day date. He had also gotten a hair cut that morning, so we both were rocking the so fresh and so clean clean vibes. A stroll down Park Avenue, and popping into some of our favorite spots was on the agenda. However, I was deeply saddened by how many shops and restaurants have gone out of business. Don't forget to support your local businesses during this awful time! Curbside pick up options and gift cards are causing the owners to have a little happy dance! 


And can we please talk about this sweater dress? It was a "gift" to myself as I was shopping for loved ones, and I couldn't be happier. It was warm and cozy for a chilly day in Florida, and it's SO soft. It comes in 3 colors, and I may need to scoop up another. Perfect for some me-time at the salon and a day date with my favorite guy afterwards.

  9. You look fabulous! I always wait way too long between hair appointments. I went an entire year this past year because of everything and have never felt better when I finally got it chopped in September. I didn't do any color though, so my greys are a little scary right now. I, too, have been sad to see so many places close around here. One of my favorite burger places just announced their closure. I am heartbroken! We try to support the most we can by doing curbside take out.
