It’s been a year and a half since I did my hair last. O.k, maybe it’s been even longer. In all honesty, I can’t even remember it’s been so long! However, mom-life took over, and I never made getting my hair done a priority. Needless to say, I’ve been needing to do something to it.
This year for my birthday, I decided to finally treat myself to a trip to the salon. A friend of mine recommended Danya Robinson, a hairstylist who works at Refresh Salon and Spa, in the modern, and beautiful Suterbrook Village in Port Moody.
After seeing my friends blunt cut & highlights from Danya, I decided I wanted something similar. After looking at Danya’s Instagram photos, I called in right away to book my appointment!
The funny thing is, booking the appointment was the most challenging part for me! Seriously, as I was looking through my calendar to try to find 3 hours for a trip to the salon, it seemed nearly impossible. With preschool hours being short, and pick ups and drop offs to lessons, and all of my other mom & work obligations, I finally squeezed in a day. However, my appointment wasn’t for two weeks after I called. I also had to find childcare for my preschooler so I could make it. Clearly, this is why I don’t get my hair done as often as I would like!
Yesterday I went to my appointment at Refresh Salon and Spa, and I immediately felt welcome when I came through the door. The staff is super friendly, and the space is massive! It’s very deceiving from the outside.
Danya showed me some photos of her work, and we agreed on a style.
The rest is history!
Ok, well not quite history, but the rest is …
After: Blunt cut, and lots of highlights that blend and flow throughout, creating a natural highlighted look.
Aah, I’m in love with my new hair! And the best part was the 3 hours I spent sitting at the salon reading a magazine, getting my hair washed, snap-chatting ( yes, I”m officially addicted to snapping everything lol) and relaxing! It felt ah-mazing!
Truthfully, I did feel a tad guilty, for being there. My thoughts told me I should be tending to the housework, or getting some writing done, but then I told these ridiculous thoughts to shut up because I deserve it!
Seriously, this was the best birthday present ever! It felt so great to pamper myself, and best of all, I have my new hair to show for it:)
Thank you to Refresh Salon and Spa for a wonderful experience!
*Refresh Salon and Spa would like to gift one lucky reader with a ReDavid Hair package so you can pamper yourself! This item is pick-up in the salon only.
Best of luck friends! If you live in the tricities, I suggest checking out this salon, and I highly recommend hairstylist Danya!
Cheers to self-care!
