Sometimes it's hard to find the right fit for a hair stylist that will allow for optimum "wow" factor in terms of the total outcome of an ensemble. I've been on the lookout for that salon where I can leave happy, knowing t hat will be true.
Recently, I was recommended to the Atelier Aveda SalonSpa located on the upscale, mixed-use shopping strip in San Jose known as Santana Row. The great part about this location is you can take a little shopping detour at retailers like Burberry, Cole Haan or Footcandy. Or even go for the many luxury restaurants like Amber India, BlowFish Sushi, or Straits Cafe. Possibly, you might want to satisfy your sweet tooth and stop by Cocola Bakery (yum).
From personal experience, I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed the service and left with a satisfied smile on my face. To my surprise, I was also given a very relaxing scalp massage right before the haircut. (Standard for Aveda salons, but not always everywhere else.) And if you aren't offered, they also do light make-up free of charge after your cut.
Great Service. Great Haircut. What more could you ask?
