Looking for a new ‘Do? Check out Gila Rut!

Finding a hair salon & stylist that you LOVE can be a challenge. People are constantly switching hair salons in hopes of discovering the one place or stylist that makes them leave the salon feeling like a million bucks (while certainly not spending that much!).  I’ve lived in San Diego for 13 years now and after salon-hopping all over town for the first 5 or 6 years, I finally discovered the BEST HAIR SALON in San Diego: Gila Rut!

Gila Rut (pronounced geela root) is amazing! I go to their Torrey Hills location and see Christine for color and Andre for my cut. Christine will help you achieve the perfect color/highlights/lowlights that you have always been looking for. Andre is a “Master Designer Level 2” and a total perfectionist. He loves to create a vision of your dream haircut, matched perfectly to your face and personality.

I always get so many compliments on my hair and everyone asks where I go! This has never happened to me before I went to Gila Rut. Go see Christine & Andre- you will be amazed at what they can do!

Loving this casual Beach Waves cut & style by Andre!

Also- major bonus! Every time you go to the salon, you get 2 free complimentary mini-spa services!! So while you are getting your hair done, you can choose to be pampered with a neck & shoulder massage, mini facial, hand massage, or make-up touch-up so you can walk out the door looking and feeling like a million bucks!

Gila Rut is an Aveda salon- and Aveda products are simply the best! I’m obsessed with the Smooth Infusion line of hair products, and for a deep conditioning, I love their Dry Remedy Moisturizing Masque ! Overall, I just LOVE this place!!!

Wait… there’s more! It’s Gila Rut’s 25th anniversary celebration! On July 24th the staff at Gila Rut is venturing to the Ronald McDonald House to give 25 makeovers to the families as special way to say thank you to the community that’s supported them for the past 25 years. Check out the Facebook event for more details!

They’re also offering FREE services all month long in exchange for a simple $10 or $20 donation to the RMH. For a $20 donation to the RMH, guests receive a blowout (normally $35) and for a $10 donation guests can choose from the following: Energizing Facial Treatment, Eye Treatment, Scalp Treatment, Mini Chair Massage and Exfoliating Hand Treatment. Hurry in, these deals end on July 31!
