A Small Town Girl's
Las Vegas Loves #1
{Globe Salon}

Friday, March 11, 2011

When a person thinks of Las Vegas, several things usually come to mind. Many of these same things are really the antithesis of this small town girl. For example... Gambling? Not my thing. Drinking? Eh, not big on it most days. Cheesy fellas sporting Ed Hardy shirts and too much cologne? Somebody please get me out the Hard Rock before I throw up. Seriously.

That said, I adore Las Vegas. I really do. Love brought me to this sparkly city and I can honestly say that love is what has kept me here. The love of Las Vegas. Since I first started blogging about my move from Seattle, I have gotten a lot of questions about the best places to stay, eat, etc. and, honestly, I get really excited sharing my Vegas loves. I especially love it because I tend to direct people to some of the smaller spots off the strip, places the typical visitor might miss out on.

So, I decided that from time to time, I want to share some of my Vegas insights on le blog. To start this off, I really want to tell you about my FAVORITE place in my new city, a place you would be foolish not to visit when you're here, Globe Salon.

If you're like me, you take your hair pretty darn seriously. (Yes, I realize there are far more pressing concerns going on in the world, but if my hair looks great, my day just tends to go a little better. It's just a fact.) Moving to a new city and looking for a stylist is no easy task, especially for me. I had what you might call hair stylist baggage. You see, the man who used to do my hair for years (a man my entire family loves and misses, for the record) had a passion for hair that was only matched by a (former) passion for drugs and drinking on the job. This combination made me, on more than one occasion, walk out of his salon looking and feeling like a fool. So, like anyone who has gone through a bad hair breakup, I was reticent to commit again... Until Globe.

From my first appointment at Globe, I knew this was not only the salon I had been looking for since I had moved to Las Vegas, but - and I really don't think I'm exaggerating here - my whole life. Why, you wonder? Well, let me tell you... Globe only hires the best. The stylists are hip, funny, kind and incredibly talented at what they do. Megan, who does my hair, has never, ever disappointed me. She is an artist who understands color and what looks good. End of story. More than that, when I have an appointment on the books, I know that day is going to be great. From the moment you walk in the door, you are treated like family. And from the moment you walk out, you are treated like a rock star because you look that damned good. Throw in their massaging shampoo chairs and the fact they made Elle Magazine's Top 100 Salons list and, well, I'm simply in love and I know you will be, too.

If you happen to live in Vegas or will be in town this Sunday, I urge you to join me at Globe Salon for their Cut-a-Thon fundraiser. 100% of the proceeds from this event will go to the American Foundation for Children with AIDS benefiting children with HIV/AIDS living in sub-Saharan Africa. This is a cause, and a salon, truly close to my heart. Hope to see you there.

In the meantime, thank you, Globe. Thank you for treating me like a friend during a time when I hadn't made any yet, thank you for making my hair look better than it ever has and thank you for giving your time and money to issues as important as this. Las Vegas is lucky to have you.

Happy hair, friends!
