We’ve been working extra hard lately (busy full-time jobs, growing blog empires, etc.) and sadly won’t be going on vacation anytime soon. Boo hoo, right? How do we deal? We treat ourselves to some serious pampering with a day of beauty at Byrde + the b, Washington. That’s how!

Hair, beauty, art…
And don’t forget shopping! Yes, a visit to Byrde + the b is an entire experience. A rejuvenating day trip if you like. Located in the old Woodruff Garage in Washington Depot, Byrde + the b is so much more than a full-service luxury salon.
Emmy award-winning stylist Scott Bond has created a unique way to enjoy hair and beauty services. Think major LA/NYC/European-chic vibes. Imagine sipping a cappuccino while you’re hair is styled in front of those open French doors. Who even needs a vacation?!
Byrde + the b services include cuts, color, blow-outs, hair extensions, balayage, waxing, eyebrows, skincare, light therapy, manicures, and bridal services. BYRDEMAN is the newest addition to the Byrde + the b family, offering a luxury bespoke barbershop experience.
Follow Byrde + the b’s Instagram account and you’ll see why Lora wanted to get the “Lucy-blonde” treatment. She does amazing work and we can’t get enough of her before + after transformations! Lucy knows blonde.
Lucy gave Lora a shadow root and a lowlight/highlight Balayage. Some deep conditioning, trimming, and styling and we have Lora sporting her new look.
Environ clinical facial. Hello, Barbara Tilley!
Barbara Tilley (with the magic touch) treated moi (Bev) to an intense and luxurious Environ clinical facial which focused on proper exfoliation using a specially formulated alpha hydroxy acid. Vitamin A and C, along with a triple peptide serum and moisturizers were then infused into my skin to restore moisture and increase firmness.
Next came the occlusive alginate mask! This cooling peel-off mask helped to normalize the pH of my skin and prevent transdermal water loss, aiding in deeper product penetration and better hydration.
Then came the 10-minute hand and arm massage. Using Environ’s body care products (a two-step process consisting of the skin smoothing Derma-Lac lotion and nourishing Vitamin A, C, & E oil), Barbara made me forget the world existed outside my mask!
A 10 minute LED therapy session is also incorporated into the facial resulting in healthier, hydrated, and glowing skin! And one happy (very chilled out) Bev!
