Hair trumps all!

Sorry Scout fans, its been a while since our last blog, but I've been on a vacation. Now I'm back and reinvigorated and inspired. It's a crazy week here at the Studio and one of the reasons is that the Scouts have an unofficial rule that any beauty-inspired appointment gets priority on the schedule. Now we all know how high maintenance designers can be, right? So you can imagine after one Scout returns from a cruise, another from the beach, and one hobbling around with a stress fracture, there's got to be some upkeep involved in that. We thought we'd share the experience with you. Scout Dana: When it comes to my hair appointment, almost nothing else matters. I go to Mindi at Vanity Hair Studio in Oakwood. My hair is very difficult to cut because it is very curly and twice as thick as a normal human. Mindi has figured out a new way to cut my hair and I love it. First she colors, blow dries and then straightens! She cuts it after it is completely straight (which is no small feat). Then comes my favorite part….”the debulking” as I call it. I walk in there w/crazy curly hair and walk out a different person, literally. It’s so fun to freak people out! Check out the before and after….

Scout Jean: The Scouts have an image to maintain, so treating ourselves to facials and pedicures isn't a frivolity, it's a necessity. When one of the Scouts posts a facial appointment on the calendar, we all adjust our schedules to allow it. How could we possibly face (pun intended) each work day without the luminous complexions we acquire through the skillfully trained hands of our aesthetician, Christine Price, owner of LaDeDa le salon in Oakwood, OH. Christine received her training in Paris and it shows. French women spend far more time caring for their skin than putting on makeup. It makes perfect sense; the better your skin looks, the less makeup you need. Somehow we think our design projects look a little more polished in the glow of our freshly scrubbed cheeks too. But seriously, when you feel good about yourself, it shows in everything you do. Merci beaucoup Christine!

Scout Debbie: There's probably not much I'd rather do than spend a few hours at Square One Salon downtown getting my hair done. I've been a regular since I've moved to Dayton and highly recommend it. Square One is an Aveda concept salon and owners Brent, Josh, and Doug are model business owners. From catering to their clients to giving back to the community, I look to them for inspiration! Anyway, my master stylist, Alan, is amazing. Jean, Robin, and I all look to him to keep our split ends and roots in check.
