A few years back my trusty stylist of 10+ years went on her second maternity leave. She wasn’t planning on returning for over a year which left me in a huge bind. If there’s anything I dislike more than traffic, it’s paying for a crappy haircut.
Luckily I found this little chic, cute, and clean salon in Santa Monica – Byu-Ti Salon. Practically every beauty gal from bloggers to publicists recommended it so I had to try it out. What attracted me the most about it was that I could make appointments online and see the real price of each service. Most salons will tell you that a service starts at a certain amount, but until you’re finished, you won’t know the actual price.
As much as I loved Sura, my new go-to stylist, the traffic to Santa Monica was too difficult for me. Imagine how happy I was to hear that ByuTi was opening a new location in Brentwood!
The new Byuti Brentwood salon offers a slightly more upscale and stylish experience, including free champagne every weekend! The salon is about 300 sq. ft bigger than the Santa Monica salon, but the decor, designed by salon founder Natasha Sunshine-Antonioni‘s husband, allows for more usable space. The layout is also reminiscent of a runway or theater’s backstage with all the mirrors lined up next to each other.
ByuTi offers all the customary salon services along with a few unique ones crafted by Natasha herself. These include:
The Healing Haircut: Equal parts restorative meditation and beauty treatment, a Healing Haircut combines a cut with massage, reiki, and acupressure. The treatment begins with a question to the client: what would you like to let go of? Next, he/she is asked to imagine giving up that something with the cutting away of hair. The healing portion of the process follows, and then the cutting begins. Custom-Blended Reparative Treatments: The ByuTi team specializes in creating healthy hair. Just as each client is unique, each treatment is specifically formulated to give him/her the greatest results possible. ByuTi Blender treatments are available to help smooth coarse hair, thicken fine or limp hair, add shine to dull locks, rebuild protein in weak or damaged hair, repair over-processed hair and to help fight oily hair. Clients can choose between one or multiple blenders to bring their hair to the fullest health and quality. Men’s Grooming: Not just for women, ByuTi makes the salon process comfortable for men, while delivering the latest in men’s grooming.
The Custom-Blend Reparative Treatments, aka ByuTi Blenders, are musts for every type of hair. The stylists chooses a blend most suited for your hair to get it back to a healthy state. The Blenders are available by itself or as an add-on to any service. I had a mix of Hydrating, Super Smooth, and Color Extension which made my hair feel and look so much healthier.
Definitely check out the new ByuTi Salon in Brentwood if you’re in the LA area. I’ve personally had my hair cut by Natasha and Sura, and my hair colored by Sura and Stacey Ellis. All three ladies are amazing, friendly, and extremely talented. You really can’t go wrong making an appointment with either one of them.
As for special perks for you – the salon is offering FREE BLOWOUTS from now until June 1 when you call and mention ME (Gloria of Beyond Beauty by Gloria). Plus new guests receive a complimentary treatment at their first visit, 20% off products (Pureology and Redken products are available), and 20% off the second appointment. Now for the best and most swag part… COMPLIMENTARY CHAMPAGNE ON WEEKENDS!
No really.. that’s swag. I bet Cat Marnell will say it’s swag. When she says something is swag, it’s legit.
