I’ve been a very lucky lady the past few weeks, experiencing lots of prettifying places in the Valley.
Last week, I went to the new Park Avenue Blow Dry and Beauty Bar in Arcadia, right next to Arcadia Tavern. The inside is gorgeous and girly, with a pretty pink and orange color scheme and dainty furniture that looks like it belongs in a dollhouse.
Like Drybar, Park Avenue offers blow-outs for $35, but it also features make-up applications, spray tans and mini-facials for the same price.
My stylist was Miss Lauren Duet (request her if you go!), and she did a fabulous job. She got my hair perfect—I opted for a little bit of bounce with soft waves—and the make-up was amazing. I don’t know how she did it so well, but I couldn’t help but feel pretty after leaving (and that’s hard to get me to do!)
The atmosphere was very relaxed and peaceful, and you get water to sip on while you’re getting your treatment. I also liked the Pandora radio station that was playing, a mix of indie rock, and everyone I interacted with there was super-friendly.
It’s only been open for a month, so now’s your chance to be one of the first Park Avenue customers. They also offer bundles of packages, which saves you lots of money, so be sure to ask about those. For more info, log on to www.parkavenueblowdry.com.
