SAS Blow Dry & Makeup Bar [Giveaway]

see more by

I had my 20-year high school reunion last month. So weird, because it really seems like 1992 was not that long ago. Seeing that many people hadn’t seen me in about, oh, 20 years, I wanted to try to do what I could to improve upon the last image they might of had of me, and that was one of a very big spiral perm so I made an appointment at a new blow dry bar in OC called SAS to see what they could do to SAS me up before the big event!

SAS, which stands for “Shampoo & Style” is a full service blow dry and makeup bar, so I was thrilled to not only be getting my hair done, but my makeup too!

When I walked in on that Saturday afternoon, the place was BUZZING with energy. Light and bright and decked out in beautiful colors, this is the perfect place to get the party started!

I was introduced to my stylist, who would be doing both my hair and makeup, and once settled into my chair, I was first given a quick scalp massage with scented oils (heaven) and then offered a complimentary beverage, of which, a glass of chardonnay was exactly what I needed to calm my pre-reunion nerves! Cheers to 1992 and the hope that spiral perms never return…

After a delightful wash, we headed back to the blow dry chair and she went to work. I think getting your hair blown out is one of the most pampering things you can do for yourself. To not have to worry about having a “good hair day” is such a luxury, especially when you need to look extra gorgeous for a special event.

I opted to go with big, loose, (try to be) sexy curls, as this is a style I can never do on my own.  It sort of felt like I was getting ready for prom, with the bonus that I already knew my date (my hubby) already really liked me!

And the MAKEUP was to-die-for!!!! One of the first things my stylist told me is, “you have to get the lashes too!” Yes, you can add on (natural-looking) fake lashes for only +$10 to your makeup application. I haven’t worn lashes since my wedding day 10 years ago, and it was so MUCH fun.

I didn’t look while I was getting dolled up, and when she finally showed me in the mirror when I was done, I was shocked because it didn’t even almost look like me! I have to say, I felt fabulous.

And isn’t that the most important thing after all?  Not so much how you actually look, but how you FEEL you look? There is no price you can put on that!

I absolutely loved, loved, loved SAS and it will be my go-to place anytime I need a great blow out or professional makeup (even think of SAS for your family holiday card photo – perfect, right?!)

The prices are super reasonable, the blow outs start at only $35, but can run up to $65 if you are wanting a full updo for a formal event or wedding.  Want a little extra pampering?  Opt for the +$10 Spoil Me add on and get a deep conditioning treatment and 10 minute revitalizing scalp massage.

Makeup application starts at only $20 for “Starry Eyes” which is eyeliner, mascara and eye shadow.  Be camera-ready with the “Cover Girl” for $35, which includes full makeup, including foundation, powder, the works!

And my personal favorite, the +$10 lashes add on. LOVED THESE! They totally make your eyes POP and were so fun to feel just a little extra glamorous.

Call 949.646.6345 to make an appointment, or book one easily online.

Hooray! It’s a Tiny Giveaway! One lucky reader will win “The SAS” signature blowout which includes a scalp massage, shampoo, and blow dry with a custom style tailored just for you. Gorgeous! Enter here!!!

      What was I thinking?? A couple of girlfriends were talking after the reunion, and I commented on how so many women looked so gorgeous – Even better than what they looked like at 18 – and one of my friends said , “that’s because our hair was so big back then no one could see our face!” 🙂

    Being a mom of two young boys, I rarely get or take the time to pamper myself. I would LOVE to win this!

    A lot of my girlfriends have had blow outs done, but I’ve never had one. I always feel like it’s unnecessary money spent, but it sounds like it’s a pampering indulgence worth the splurge from time to time. Hopefully I get a chance to try it out 🙂
