If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed a change in my hair! Although, it does sometimes seem like you notice the change more than anyone else ha! My hair grows really quickly and had gotten really long. I was procrastinating getting it cut because I hadn’t decided what to do with it yet! I have actually donated it three times, which I love doing, but I always miss my long hair once it’s gone. Thanks to Shakti Salon, I got a few inches cut off without making it too short. I know in some opinions, it is still very long, but for me, this is definitely on the shorter side! My hair stylist was Nina and I asked her to take off the dead ends and add some layers and that’s exactly what she did!

 I was lucky enough to spend a few hours with Shakti salon in Kingston, PA getting a manicure, pedicure, eyebrow wax and shine treatment, in addition to my haircut! I haven’t had a pedicure since my wedding (eek!) almost two years ago, so that was definitely needed! Rachel did both my manicure and pedicure and was so amazing! She used a few different Aveda products that were absolutely amazing! One was a rosemary product that smelled so good! She put on these products and then wrapped my feet in towels for about 10 minutes. It was really warm at first and then became really cooling and felt great. She did this same thing with my hands during my manicure and it was so calming.

After my nails were finished, they offered me a shine treatment for my hair. I had never had anything like that and I don’t color my hair, but they told me that it doesn’t change the color of your hair at all, so I was all for it! Dana did this for me by almost “painting” my hair. I can’t think of a better way to describe it ha, but it is basically like painting a thick paste in your hair and letting it sit for 5 minutes before washing it out. My hair is definitely shiny and I was told that it will last for up to 24 washes!

I would definitely recommend Shakti Salon for any hair or nail services if you’re in the area! They also provide makeup, bridal and men’s services. Everyone there is so friendly and has great product suggestions that I’m sure you’ll love! I have pictured below some of the products that they used while I was there and, I have to say, these Aveda products are amazing! Head over to their website to book an appointment!
