312 Pretty: George the Salon


At the start of the year, I made a few commitments. a.k.a. resolutions. I’m not totally against that word, no. I guess I’ve just always associated it with inaction, the anti-commitment if you will. But this girl put pen to paper and decided to make some lifestyle adjustments. On that list you’ll find developing a regular workout routine and of course eating more greens. Both are happening, woo!  But it’s when veggies meet hair that I get really excited. I took a trip to George the Salon a few weeks ago to experience the Vegetarian Miracle Conditioning Treatment. Courtesy of George and team, they pampered me with the two-part veggie infusion and a sleek blowout.

The first part is an intense conditioning treatment using Davines Nourishing Vegetarian Miracle Conditioner, which contains avocado, acai and rice oils. It’s left on for about 10 minutes and followed up with Davines Living Enzyme Infusion Spray which contains proteins to strengthen strands and a special enzyme to protect your hair from damage. The combo, which is offered for $20 at George, is a nice treat and add-on to another service. My hair felt like silk afterwards and is still looking especially shiny. Plus, I loathe getting regular trims so treatments like these are how I prolong trips that include scissors.


Me and the fabulous George Gonzalez

After my blowout, I had a chance to chat with thee George. He hails from the world of Oprah/Harpo, where he styled for more than a decade before opening his own salon about five years ago. George has a long list of services to pretty you up, and most recently teamed with celeb manicurist Jade Morales to offer Salon-goers manis and hand scrub treatments. Hair + mani is always a welcome all-in-one for me. 312 ladies, take note.

    This is very interesting.. You got me thinking and I’m very interested in trying Davines product myself. Although I’m a bit skeptical about it but I guess there’s no harm in trying. Thanks for sharing this!
