It's a new year, so what better time to work on creating the best "you" that you can be? In West Hollywood, we're committing to treating ourselves well in 2013 - that means getting fit, eating right, getting a new look and pampering ourselves after long days of working hard and generally being awesome.
Every week we're featuring West Hollywood spas, salons, boutiques, restaurants and gyms that will help you meet your goals. This week, we're focusing on WeHo salons. Between work, family, education, friends, relationships (and occasional sleep) it's easy to get into a style rut: getting the same old haircut or style every time, applying the same boring makeup and running out of time to get a manicure. Each of the West Hollywood salons featured below offer personalized services so you can transform into the person you really want to be - all at a one-stop shop!
If you: have had the same color or style forever and want a change; are pleased with your overall look but want to make minor changes; are generally content but are open to new ideas; or if you have been stuck in the same look and want to change but don't know how, then you fit into Robert Matt Salon's most common client list! The salon's motto "What do you want your hair to say about you?" inspires the "hair shaping" procedure that you'll receive, in which a stylist will take into account your likes, dislikes and taste; your lifestyle; which products you use and how you would prefer to care for your hair. Robert Matt also offers expert hair color (complete with the above personalized consultation) and hair loss solutions for Male Pattern Baldness. You'll walk out a whole new you, with a look that is easy to maintain in your lifestyle.
If you're new to the salon scene, bustling salons laden with loud blowdryers and chemicals in the air may overwhelm you. Instead, try Andy LeCompte Salon on North Almont Drive in West Hollywood. The minimalist design, including natural sunlight sky lights, warehouse-sized windows, custom decor and private art collection featuring the works of Andy Warhol, Marilyn Minter and Robert Rauschenberg, your visit will be a relaxing experience to remember. All in one stop, you'll be able to choose from haircut, color, style, eyebrow, nails, Brazilian blowout, keratin rejuvenation and personalized hair treatments. Andy LeCompte stylists will consult with you before every service to customize a formula or treatment just for you. No more mass hair cut or the same bottle blonde - everyone's experience will be different and tailored to them.
If you fall into the category of wanting a change but don't know where to begin, then book an appointment at Marco Pelusi's Robertson Boulevard salon. One of the "Top 40 Haircolorists" nationwide and the "Best Haircolor in Los Angeles," Pelusi certainly knows hair. Whether you're a male or female, you can get your hair cut, colored, collagen conditioned, blow-dried, styled, straightened or longer - with extensions. Marco also offers keratin smoothing treatments to keep your hair healthy, lip waxing and makeup services. Get ready for a night out - or the rest of 2013 - with a new look here.
