Are you looking for a Hairdresser, a Massage Therapist, Nail Tech, Esthetician or a doctor that can help you feel like a supermodel as you walk your personal runway through life?
Well, today is all about turning to the left and turning to the right as we work it out in the world.
I’ve worked with some of the most incredible people in the salon and spa industry over the last decade. I think it’s about time to highlight the ones I love and who make others look and feel like supermodels.
I am going to turn to the left and start in Italy and then work my way back to where I started workin’ it behind the chair, thirteen years ago in Denver, Colorado. First up one of my favorite Irish ladies located in the Campania Region of Italy. Her name is Isobel O’Brien.
She offers a variety of services from massage to aromatherapy. You leave her treatment room feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Do you live north of Naples, Italy? Are you moving into the boot anytime soon? You can contact Isobel at Spa Rituals by Isobel to make an appointment.
Okay moving from east to west. When we drove a few thousand kilometers and moved from Italy to Portugal, I was really in need of a massage. Guess who came to my rescue? Paula Furtado.
Paula is currently a manager at the BSpa by Karin Herzog in Lisbon, Portugal. If you love the spa life, Paula is the perfect person in this city to direct you to the ones who can help accommodate your needs. Now, since my friend Paula is managing a day spa that is a bit far from my home in Cascais, I’ve started visiting my friends Sonia and Maria at Spadramatico & Clinic Dermoestética.
They offer spa services but also services that I’ve never, ever, heard of until I saw their machines. They are located in Cascais, Portugal. From Pressotherapy, which is a detoxifying treatment that helps with lymphatic drainage,
to Cryolipolysis, which is a process that destroys fat cells by cooling, they offer the regular kind of day spa treatments to unique ones.
You can also contact Sonia at LadyStudio to see the newest nail trends, get advice or be serviced.
Before I turn to the right and leave Europe, you can find two brilliant surgeons in Portugal, Cristina and Claudio Nogueira at Cirurgia Estética Portugal. They work the entire body from the inside to the outside.
I am jumping over the pond now and headed west to my motherland. I’ll stop on the east coast in Lynchburg, VA at ZEN micro spa and salon. Here you’ll find one of my best friends and Spa Director of ZEN micro spa and salon David.
His day spa and salon offers everything from facials to hair care. We spent many days workin’ it side by side back in Denver, many years ago. Love you D!
Headed north and just a little over a three hour drive from Lynchburg in the same state, you can find Tam with Heavenly Bodies Clinic.
From acupuncture to reflexology Heavenly Bodies Clinic specializes in a holistic approach to health. Tam and the staff can turn you to the left or the right, by assisting you with any pain you might have from all the work you do on your personal runway.
We’ll leave the east coast and stop in the heartland, where the waving wheat sure smells sweet. Meet Amber Conner and Crystal Maples. I’ve known these two girls since primary school. In fact, Crystal was one of my college roommates and Amber is the youngest sister to my other college roommate Ashley. They currently do their thing east of Oklahoma City. Are you looking for a stylist with lots of personality?
Amber on the left can be contacted through FB here and Crystal on the right owns a full service salon called The Hairy Coconut in Choctaw, Oklahoma. You can reach Crystal at 405-769-2323 to set up an appointment. Okay heading to the west coast of the United States we’ll stop in Portland, Oregon where we’ll find Celeste Broadwater at Matisse and Picasso.
You’ll be sashaying your way out of her chair as you chantay yourself back to the working world after a visit with her.
Finally, we’ll end in Denver, Colorado. You can find four of my favorite hairdressers here. First, the lovely Jayme Hubbart who owns The Beauty Shop Thornton, located in Thornton, CO.
Second, Lisa Barrett who is located in Highlands Ranch at Dolce Vita Salon & Spa. You can also contact her at 720-272-1538 for an appointment. She’s the beautiful blonde on the right next to another one of my beautiful lady friends, Diana Ben-KiKi.
Diana is an excellent wig maker. You can find her at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts if you know of someone who is in need of a wig or would like to see the work she’s involved in. Now the cute little blonde below is Karen Watson. Karen chops and dyes at 3rd Avenue Studio in Denver.
Looking for a massage therapist east of the Rocky Mountains? Sara Greenlee is the one to call. She is the owner of Harmony Therapeutics Massage and Bodywork and can fine tune that instrument you play everyday.
A few of my favorite workin’ girls in the spa and salon industry. I am done doing my thing today. I’ll be moving onto Guam-a-lama-land, aka Guam, here soon to discover new people who work so hard every day to help us feel good and look great! Work, do your thing……
Work, turn to the left, work, now turn to the right. Work, sachey chantay…..Inspiration today comes from the song Supermodel (You Better Work) by RuPaul, Jimmy Harry and Larry Tee
