I was devastated to find out that my hairdresser moved to Texas. It really is a big deal!!! I understand why she moved but but but I didn't want to find a new person to do my hair.
I asked around and I looked around. Then I made an executive decision.
I admit I picked this place because I pass it from time to time and the name is in french. I love french. I know that's a corny reason to trust your hair with someone but I wasn't disappointed.
I made an appointment at L'eau de Vie Salon and Spa.
I actually sat in the chair to the right! It has a beautiful view of Asheville. I am such a people watcher and it would have been totally fabulous to just sit there all day and watch the people below.
This is where I met Barry. This is also where I met his magic hands! We talked about how I usually wear my hair and such. I was a tad bit nervous. He didn't rush me to a sink to wash my hair. He put a few drops of oil in his hands and had me take a deep breath. He then proceeded to massage my neck and head. ~insert deep sigh here~ It was heavenly. I hate to admit this but I felt one single tear escape my right eye. It was that good.
It was nice to have a mans hands touching me without any expectations. Make sense. I wanted to rip off my clothes for a full body massage. Now now, get your minds out of the gutters. I am not that kind of woman and Barry isn't that kind of man. I meant a real massage. A real massage with my kids NO WHERE near the building in earshot.
I know things happen for a reason. There were too many signs! I was meant to find Barry today! First, my husbands name is Barry. It's not a popular name! Second, Barry has a cat named Madeline!!! NO JOKE!!!!
I am sorry I lost Deeanne but I am glad to have found Barry.
If you are ever in need of a wonderful Salon in Asheville, NC then you need to check out L'eau de Vie Salon. He was worth every bit of the $50.00 I was charged today!! It's a bit more than I usually pay but he gives so much more!
Thank you Barry! I enjoyed meeting you today and I will be calling you back. Getting your hair cut by someone new is like a first date! You just don't have to worry about a kiss goodnight. :)
My new hair!
