The Best Day Spa & Salon

Ok, I'm not a high-maintenance kinda girl. I think I've made that clear in the past. But I am very picky about who cuts my hair. I have searched for a good stylist for years and when I find one they are MINE and have no right to move, retire or die.

Several years ago I found Zena at what was then Nature's Day Spa. She's brilliant. About two years ago she started her own salon called Desirant. It's a lovely space with great ambiance and special services. For instance, for a manicure your hands aren't soaked in water but hand cream. For a pedicure your feet are placed in a copper basin while someone else stands behind you massaging your shoulders.

Zena had to have neck surgery last year and now only does one or two clients once a week. I'm a bad client because I'll go without cuts for months and then want one NOW. She wasn't available for my NOW so I reluctantly agreed to have someone else at the salon cut my hair. That stylist did an acceptable job overall, but didn't trim the top layers short enough. After a couple days I called the salon and requested a fix.

So I went in today and got yet another stylist, Sarah. I liked her immediately and she did a fabulous job. She started with the aromatherapy head massage, which is standard for Desirant, Washed, cut, styled my hair perfectly and ended with a hand massage. And I was charged ZERO for all that. Zena, Sarah, Desirant, you rule.

I normally avoid glamour-type shots like the plague, but I came home and David was so infatuated with my hair that he took some pictures which actually turned out farily well, although you can't see the cut as well as I'd like. Plus my ankles are swollen. Ok, I'll shut up now.

Oh, you're sweet! You should have seen the 12 other photos he took. I've got one eye closed, or both eyes half closed, or a creepy grin. This one was the only one that turned out. I'm a photographer's nightmare!

There has been something wrong with every camera that has taken a picture of me. The lens only opens when my mouth is open and my first chin is down, accentuating all five of my chins. Ask Jenny. JAD

Isn't it wonderful that David thinks you're so great (well, you are!)...

It is wonderful that David thinks I'm great and still get the hots (which is better than getting the trots, but I digress). JAD, I have seen good pictures of you, so there. But trust me I understand the camera thing, I have a special talent for looking like drooling idiot with glandular problems on film (which is not far from the truth, but again, I digress).
