I love salons where the owners seem to actually care about you, which is why I had a wonderful experience when I checked out the Scottsdale Beauty Bar recently after being invited for a blowout. Owner Becca Smith took care of my locks, and her passion and genuine caring for her clients was evident by the great service I received and personable banter that included making sure I was satisfied with how every strand turned out.
Becca, an ambitious young business owner who has opened several salons in the Valley, aims to make the Scottsdale Beauty Bar a one-stop shop for all things fabulous, with full hair services including color and cuts, a nail bar and tanning. The salon is cute and cozy, and the complimentary champagne you can sip while you’re indulged is a nice touch.
What stood out to me most about the spot is the killer “happy hour” deal – blowouts for only $20 every day the salon is open (it’s only closed Sunday’s), from 4-7 p.m. Considering the salon is within walking distance of some of Old Town Scottsdale’s busiest nightclubs, including Maya Day + Nightclub, that is one smoking deal. It’s a great excuse to grab a girlfriend, unwind, and get a sleek and sexy hairdo before cocktails or a night on the town.
You can also get braids and extensions at Scottsdale Beauty Bar, and judging from Becca’s beautiful, long hair that looked completely natural but included locks from the extension brand she uses on clients, I’d say the salon is a good spot to try.
Becca said she hopes to expand her offerings but wants to grow at a pace where she doesn’t sacrifice service – if only all Valley salons had the same mentality.
