A few weekends ago, Mitchell’s Salon & Day Spa totally hooked me and some fellow Cincinnati bloggers up for a Sunday full of pampering. The timing could not have been more perfect, as I had just gotten back from an eleven-hour car ride the night before.
The spa day took place at Mitchell’s Kenwood Collection location, which was absolutely gorgeous. The space is very elegant and open, making you want to stay all day long.
They had experts from every service they offer- massage therapists, hair stylists, estheticians, and nail technicians. When I say it was heaven on Earth, I’m not kidding! I started off with a massage, which felt extra incredible after a long road trip. I would have happily fallen asleep on the massage table because it was so nice, but 1. that’s probably frowned upon, and 2. there were too many other good services being offered that I didn’t want to miss!
After my massage, I got a consultation with an esthetician and discussed different options for how to best take care of my skin. We also discussed the benefits of dermaplaning, which I actually had done a couple of years ago at Mitchell’s. Sidenote: it’s a great treatment that makes your skin feel like a newborn baby.
I also got to spend some time in the salon, where I fessed up to my boring hair routine (which consists of either curly or straight hair). I always love half up half down styles but am terrible at executing them successfully. Kaitlyn, the hairstylist, had her hair styled exactly this way, and I immediately had to know her secrets. She gave me some good tips and introduced me to the secret weapon Oribe Dry Texturing Spray while styling my hair. I was so impressed by the spray that I ended up buying a full-sized bottle of it and have been using it nonstop ever since!
The dream spa day concluded with a manicure, which was very much needed after a week of sand and surf. My nails were looking pretty rough, but they were brought back to life with a fresh coat of polish.
Not only was the entire spa day incredibly generous and lovely, Mitchell’s one-upped themselves and sent us home with a bunch of goodies! I’ve always heard great things about Oribe hair products, but never actually tried them for myself. The packaging alone is so luxurious, so it’s no surprise the contents inside are just as nice. The product I’ve been using the most is the texturizing spray. I can’t get over the magic it creates on my hair!
We were also given some Bumble and Bumble products, which is another highly respected hair care line. I’ve been using the Dryspun Finish spray a ton lately, and it smells so nice and works like a charm!
It was a fabulous day with top-notch service and attention to detail the entire time. Excuse me while I go dream about my next trip to Mitchell’s…
