A Unique Hair Salon Experience At Séchoir+ On Santa Monica's Montana Avenue

Posted Jan. 17, 2013, 8:23 am

I’ve started to notice that there’s a service out there for anything. From head-to-toe, these days you can get just about anything done for you. Starting with salons for painted nails, beauty counters that will thread your eyebrows and do your make-up, to the latest for hair which means that if you don’t feel like doing your own (which ranges from washing to a full up-do to a simple “blow-dry”) then you don’t have to. Sounds good to me!
