Top 3 Ways To Treat Yourself

Did you know treating yourself and others is scientifically proven to boost happiness, health and well-being? Since we’ve already covered a few ways to treat others (check out our Valentine’s Day Gift Guide) now we are sharing three ways for you to treat yourself at The Crossroads Carmel.

Get a New Hairdo

Let’s start at the top, your head and hair. As Fran Lebowitz famously said, “You’re only as good as your last haircut.”

We believe your hair care is an investment in your happiness and confidence. Here are our three favorite salons and what their customers have to say about them:

Yongsun’s Beauty Hair Salon

When you schedule an appointment with Yongsun you will have personalized service and you’ll be the only one in the salon. With a 5 star rating on Yelp you can’t go wrong making an appointment with Yongsun.

A recent reviewer wrote, “Love my sharp summer bob! Yongsun is a consummate professional, from greeting me at the door punctually to the time and care she took dry cutting, shampooing and wet trimming, shaping, and razor edging my hair. Flawless service and a sparkling clean and sanitized salon, following all health and safety guidelines!”

O Salon

Offering a wide range of services including haircuts, color, highlights, treatments, special occasion styles, makeup, spray tanning and waxing, O Salon is your one stop shop for a total makeover.

A recent reviewer wrote, “The salon and staff are absolutely lovely! So big, bright, clean & professional. I knew immediately I was in very good hands. The stylist swept my hair into shape in 30 minutes! I left ahead of schedule with a lovely updo. I highly recommend O Salon. I made sure to tell our local friends about this gem in their community.”

Bonus: We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that this is also a great spot to get your nails done! Look no further than O Nails and Beauty for your manicures, pedicures, spray tanning, eyelashes, eyelash extensions, and make up needs. (Part of O Salon.)

Heidi’s Studio

Heidi and her team consider your hair as ‘Art With Boundaries’ and they have lots of happy customers to prove that this theory works! 

A recent reviewer wrote, “I love my hair! She gave me the perfect cut and corrected all my pandemic hair dye jobs!  She has always made my hair look gorgeous in the past!!!! I so highly recommend Andrea and Heidi’s Salon in the Crossroads.  I could not be happier!!!!”

Treat Your Whole Body

Next let’s focus on treating your whole body, to a massage!

“We have nothing to fear but missing our massage appointment time.” — Franklin D. Roosevelt

We believe FDR was on to something, that’s why we have a recurring appointment at Monterey Bay Bodyworks. Rejuvenating, affordable and effective, the treatments at Monterey Bay Bodyworks can help you calm your senses and renew your outlook. 

Monterey Bay Bodyworks

Owner, Kim Brosseau, loves the service she provides stating, “it’s one of those professions where you love to come to work. When I can make somebody feel good and they walk out of here happy, it is the best compliment in the world.”

Monterey Bay Bodyworks specializes in custom massages geared for each person’s individual needs. They will customize a hands-on full body therapeutic massage just for you. They offer deep tissue, Swedish, pressure point, Lomi Lomi, sport, relaxation, la stone, and hot stone massages or variations.

Your massage will relieve muscle tension, stimulate circulation, increase serotonin levels, improve muscle tone and promote total mind and body relaxation.
