[Red Door hair stations]
I’ve been to Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spas throughout my life, both in Pittsburgh and New York, and have never been disappointed with the services received. Hair, however, is a category that I’ve never tried out, and courtesy of the spa & salon, I received a complimentary cut. The opulent setting of the salon was clean, minimalist, and comfortable, with an illuminated space overlooking NYC’s Fifth Avenue. The hair washing chairs blew me away; they had the capability to completely recline to almost a sleeper-like status, and also massaged your back as you got washed – nice!

Billy Williams was my amicable and absolutely genius stylist, who totally got my hair misgivings, maintenance level (low), and goal (long but not completely void of volume). He artfully and carefully trimmed to clean my split ends while boosting my style and texture quotient. Growing out my bangs is a pain that I will have to bear a little longer, but Billy suggested taming my cowlick in the front with some hair spray so that the bangs maintain their sideswept shape throughout the day. It makes SO much sense – I wish I had thought of it before!
Overall, an A+ experience; check out the Red Door Spa Locator to find a location near you, and see my before and after pics!
