So this is our very first beauty related post, and we could not be more excited to be posting about the Karen Allen Aveda Salon in Temecula, Ca. I, Jamie, had the opportunity to spend some time getting my haircut there last week and had the most amazing experience. If you live in the Riverside, Inland Empire, or San Diego areas, and are ready to be pampered, you will definitely want to check them out! They have two locations, one located outside the Promenade mall in Temecula and another located in Riverside. Make sure to read the full post for a discount code on your first service!
So now let’s get on with the good stuff! The experience! When I walked into the salon I was greeted with smiles and offered water, tea, or wine to enjoy while I got pampered. Next, I was taken back by Katie who gave me an amazing massage with essential oils on my head, neck and shoulders. Let me tell you, I was not expecting this, but was told it was part of the experience, and it was so nice! Once my massage was complete, Katie took me back to wash and deep condition my hair. While the conditioner was doing it’s work in my hair, I was then given a hand and arm massage! I know what you’re thinking, another massage? Did I have to pay extra for this service? And the answer is NO! It is all included with the price of the haircut! At Karen Allen Aveda Salon, they really strive to make your service more of an experience. Once my cut and style was complete, Katie touched up my make up to ensure I looked great and was ready to rock my new locks out on the town. The last thing I want to let you know about my experience, is a few days after my appointment, I received a card in the mail, thanking me for choosing them for my hair needs. I thought this was such a nice and personalized touch.
So, I must start by saying, I hadn’t had a haircut in almost a year prior to this appointment. So, needless to say, my hair wasn’t in great shape, however I didn’t want to lose too much length. My stylist, Katie, was so sweet and really listened to what I wanted. I am a little indecisive at times, so Katie pulled out her phone and showed me some haircuts she thought I would like based on what I was telling her to ensure she got it just right. Once we decided on a haircut, she took her time and confirmed how much of the length to cut. Then she gave my a great blow out, and styled my hair with beautiful lose waves.
During my experience at Karen Allen Aveda Salon, Katie used the most amazing products on me, leaving my hair and skin feeling soft for days! She used Damage Remedy-daily hair repair, which is a leave in conditioner that detangles and helps protect hair from breakage and damage due to heat styling. She also used a volumizing tonic which gave my fine hair some much needed volume. The oil Katie used during the scalp and neck massage is Stress-Fix composition oil, an aromatic, nourishing oil for bath, body and scalp that softens and moisturizes skin. Lastly, the lotion she used during my hand massage is Hand Relief moisturizing crème, made with Andiroba oil and other plant hydrators to help infuse skin with nourishment for moisturized, soft hands.
In conclusion, I truly enjoyed my experience at Karen Allen Aveda salon in Temecula. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy being pampered and treated like a queen? I definitely left feeling relaxed and pretty! They were also kind enough to give our readers $20 off your first service! Make sure to give them the discount code simplysisters20 to receive your discount when you book your appointment.
