Bring some Estilo to the holidays..

estilo salon vancouverRight before Thanksgiving I was invited to an event at Estilo Salon in Vancouver, WA.

At the time, Estilo had only been open for about 6 weeks and they decided to invite some local influential bloggers to check out their services.

I would be lying if I said I wasn’t excited about going. I mean, who wouldn’t be?!?

estilo salon vancouverEven though I had just recently had my hair cut, I wasn’t super happy with it and I decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to put the fate of my hair completely in someone else’s hands.

The salon is located in the Grand Central Shopping Center and I will admit, the salon looked quite small from the outside. This lends to my surprise when I walked in and it was as if the salon doubled in size. With a beautiful color scheme and modern furniture, Estilo quickly lets you know that you are in good hands and the name wasn’t just a clever play on words. (Estilo in spanish means “style”.)

estilo salon vancouverKnowing that you are in good hands when it comes to your hair is super important for women. Yes, hair grows back and color fades, but can you honestly say that the last time you got a bad haircut you just shrugged it off? If you are like me you probably cried, thought your husband was going to divorce you because you weren’t pretty anymore, and wanted to become a hermit who never left their house. EVER.

Thankfully, since every single stylist and aesthetician has an average of 15 years of experience, you can trust their skills and knowledge. And they are all part of a team, so if you want a cut and color not only will your stylist consult with you about the best cut, but a colorist will come over to go over coloring options.

estilo salon vancouverFor my experience I was assigned to Tina. That’s a very trustworthy name if I do say so myself. 🙂 Tina and I talked quite a bit about my hair and what I wanted to do with it. I was brutally honest. I stink at picking out hairstyles for myself. I don’t know what looks good for the shape of my face or the type of hair I have. To my surprise Tina told me that actually with my face shape and hair I could pretty much have any hairstyle I wanted. She then asked if I wanted to go for something a little more radical when compared to my current style. It was at this point that I told her I was completely in her hands and to do with me what she wished. So the cutting began.

After my hair was cut and styled the colorist came over to talk about colors. Again, I told her to do as she wished.

Lavonne, one of the owners, actually did my color and I had a great time talking to her and learning more about the salon. In addition to having a knowledgable team, all of the stylists are educators for TIGI, the international haircare company. Their salon is actually set up to hold educational seminars, one of the walls is movable and enables them to seat up to 35 people. Eventually they will also have 2 interns who will be able to learn right along side these skilled stylists.

Seriously, I could go on and on about this place. I was amazed with the teamwork and professionalism each of them displayed. My only regret was that I didn’t have enough time to meet with their aesthetician Debra for a facial. She did sit next to me while I was getting my cut and we got to chat for a while.

So, are you wondering what I look like now?? If you follow me on Facebook (which you should because you get info on giveaways before I post them) then you know I absolutely love my hair! Each day when I wake up and blow dry it I fall in love with the cut and color all over again. Here we go:

Isn’t it cute?!?! Yes, I may be a bit biased but I can’t help it. I have a LOT of hair so Tina took out a lot of the bulk and cut in a ton of layers. This picture does not do the color justice in my opinion. I have gotten so many compliments, and I don’t care who you are, when you get a compliment about your hair you always seem to walk a little taller. Know what I’m sayin’?

This picture shows the coloring a little bit better.

  1. Entering for my wife 🙂 She colors her own hair and gets it trimmed about every 6 weeks. IMO she really, REALLY deserves a day of pampering. Love you Amy 🙂

  2. Anne-Marie A says:

    I think i get a cut about every 3 months or so.

  3. Karyl Severson says:

    I have followed Anthony and Lavonne for more than 20 yeas around the Portland area, because they are simply the best of the best. Now I admit that I did move overseas to Europe for 15 of those years, but several times I had them do my hair when I returned to Portland for visits. I am so pleased about their new salon, Estilo, and now drive from Central Oregon every 6 weeks for a cut and color. Next time, I’m going to try a facial from Debra too!

  4. Must have hair extensions!!!!!!!!

  5. I’d be willing to sit and let the professional have their way with my color and style.

  6. Tina has cut my hair for years………..I tease her that it took me 50 years to find her and I have followed her to different salons. She is the BEST!! I drive nearly 30 miles each way to see her. Now, after everyone reads this post, I’ll have to book my appts. three months out……….not complaining though….LOL

  7. deanna hanson says:

  8. Elaine A says:

    Waxing! I’d like to try it and this place looks NICE!

  9. Color Tint! I am only 22 and I have tons of gray hairs!

  10. I usually get my hair cut twice a year. I am due for a cut because it’s been one year and four months since my last hair cut. I’m looking for a new stylist but have found one yet.

  11. The girls are amazing !

  12. I would love to have a new cut and color, I have never colored my hair before and it seems the gray is now taking over!

  13. Love your new hair style! I would love a hair cut, consultation, cleansing, conditioning and finish.

  14. Kimberley Thomas says:

    Close to home~would love to win a spa day !

  15. Stacie shaver says:

    I am most excited about the pedi, mani, hair cut.. i dont color, but i would love to have it straightened again. or who knows, maybe color is i in my future. 🙂

    Pick me, please.

  16. Kyle Shaver says:

    I would share this with my wife for christmas.

  17. Cindy Carlson says:

    accidentally did everything twice – can you delete the extras? sorry!

  18. I love getting pampered but rarely make the time for myself. I think the last time I got my hair cut was a little over a year ago. I typically wear it longer and just toss it in to a pony tail because I never know what to do with it. I would love to put it in the stylists hands to see what great hairstyle she thought I could pull off. Another service that I would love is a facial. I have only had 2 in my life but they are so relaxing.

    I have never really done something different and I feel it is time. I tend to put myself last.I attend school fulltime to be a social worker to help families reunify. Most importantly, I invest and pour into my four children. They are my angels who are champions. They are such precious gems that are growing into young people. However, I do forget me sometimes and it be great to be pampered and get a new look. Im seeking for a new vibrant look. I hardly get hair cuts because Im nervous who does it. I do not have a regualr stylist.

  20. I would love to get pampered with a new hair cut. My daughter is getting married in less than 2 months and I would like to look as good as possible for her (so I don’t embarrass) and the pictures.
    I only get my hair cut 2 times a year but would go more often if I could find someone that could cut it so that it looks fabulous. 🙂
    I would love to have the shellac nails done too. I have been there once to get them done and they are amazing!! What a boost to the self esteem great looking nails does to me.

  21. Your new cut is AMAZING! You are so cute, girl!

    I have a fantastic stylist already, but I’m always interested in facials and waxing.

  22. Krissy Brinski says:

    I would be MOST excited about getting my hair colored but also need a cut, waxing, and facial! 🙂
