So ladies…. Get this. Last week I had an out of town shoot in San Francisco, for which the producers requested my hair color to match a shoot three years ago. The night before I left, my hairdresser completely flaked. SO I jump on the plane, meanwhile texting all my Bay Area friends for good haridressers, hoping someone can fit me in very last minute.
That’s what friends are for because all of them came back with suggestions. Since I had some business in Sonoma the day before the shoot, I tried the recommendation from a VERY trusted source and went to Salon Novo right off the Sonoma square.
Which made me think – how many times have we all been traveling when we run into a jam like this? Whether it be hair… or any other personal necessity.
I am here to assure you that if you ever get to the popular travel destination of Sonoma, especially during tourist-heavy harvest season, or you need a stylist for a wedding in wine country, Salon Novo is a solid bet.
Yes, this may be a blatant plug – but – good hair recommendations are hard to find. Andria and John Falcon, husband and wife team, are owners… it’s a small boutique, with art from local artists dotting the walls, but with better attractions than bigger establishments I’ve visited. There is WiFI in the salon, so many customers were getting work done. There is also a website for booking appointments – convenient!
But what was most attractive to me is that it is all green. I felt the passion this couple felt about being healthy and environmentally responsible as John washed my hair – he explained each product he used, and how all the ingredients are organic and grown on a farm. I use natural products at home, but for work or special occasions, they just don’t leave my hair as shiny. These products did. (Intelligent Nutrients.)
John also gave the BEST scalp massage. Seriously. Where was he when I was pregnant?
Andria did a great job on my hair… AS IF I need any more excuses to get back to one of my favorite places
