From stylish decor to the warmth of personnel, my first experience at Blue Grotto was delightful from start to finish. New in town, I dropped in to check it out when I saw Blue Grotto was an Aveda salon. I chatted for several minutes with the staff, who were friendly and helpful, and they said they knew the perfect stylist for me. We set an appointment for the following week, and they were right. Hairdresser Crystal and I hit it off right away, and I left with an excellent cut, color, and highlight. My favorite delight was the washout, during which Wendy offered a hand and forearm massage (gratis!) while Crystal massaged my head and neck. It was dreamy!
