Gila Rut Aveda Salon Review


Hello, there! Is it Wednesday already?!

I hope you all are having a great week so far.

Today's post is dedicated to a fantastic San Diego based business, Gila Rut Aveda Salon. I was in much need of a trip to the salon, seeing as I hadn't been since the end of March when I dyed my hair back to brunette. My faded locks were greeted by Kimi as I walked into the salon on last Thursday afternoon. Her friendliness and bubbly personality made me feel at home instantly! The salon is so open, bright, and beautifully decorated - I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere.

After a quick tour of the salon, we sat down and discussed what I was looking to do with my hair. I am always terrible at describing what I like, so after telling her and showing her a picture of something I liked, she made suggestions and together we decided what we would do to achieve the look I wanted! 


Before we began coloring, I was offered a menu of complimentary services and I got to choose which two I wanted. I chose the neck massage and a makeup touch up. The neck massage put me straight into relaxation mode, I was in heaven and felt like a queen! 

What really stood out to me, was that each hairstylist is specialized in a certain service. Kimi did my color, and Jayne did my cut, as they each were highly trained in their perspective services. Truthfully, it was some of the best service I've ever received at a salon. Jayne took the time to really analyze what was happening with the current cut of my hair. After noticing some things that needed fixing, she ran everything by me and ensured the finished product was perfect - down to the last strand of hair!


Gila Rut Salon is celebrating their 25th anniversary this month (!!) and as a thank you to the community, they will be going to the Ronald McDonald House on July 24th to give 25 makeovers to the families there. 

They're also offering free services all month long in exchange for a simple $10 or $20 donation to the Ronald McDonald House. A $20 donation gets you a blowout! Not only am I a big fan of supporting local businesses, but how amazing is it to support one that equally enjoys giving back? 

Next time you're in the need for some pampering, I definitely would recommend giving them a call! :)

Have a great week, guys!
