Moms Night Out: A Little Pampering With do-tique

#tCMMNO | #Dotique | #HairDotCM
One of our favorite things about planning mom nights out is when they involve some element of pampering. As moms we spend so much of our days focused on other things: Children, significant others, jobs, side jobs, household needs, lists, who-needs-to-be-picked-up-where, meal planning, and so on. And one of the things that tends to waiver is also one of the most crucial: ME time. 

Enter do-tique Blowout Bar in Carmel. See that gorgeous smiling face in the photo below? That's Gianna Scappucci, do-tique's owner. And here she's spilling all of do-tique's trade secrets, er, warmly greeting our CityMoms at a special members-only evening at the salon.
Every little bit of our experience was as warm as Gianna's smile. From the beautiful decor {HELLO crystal light fixtures - sure you don't want to come home with me?!} to the style books compiled with hairdo inspiration, each detail about your visit has been considered. 

Those style books? All of the models and styles were named after Gianna's friends, and even her future stepson makes an appearance. Its elements like these that made our visit feel perfectly personal.

After selecting your preferred 'do, you're taken to the washing stations where frankly, any mom would pay millions just to have their heads massaged by Gianna's stylists... 
Then it's back to the chairs to get started with blowdrying and the actual primp.  
And because all of do-tique's services revolve around hairstyling, not processing or cutting, the little time you're in the chair offers a way to feel refreshed and renewed without committing to an hours-long appointment and months-long new hairdo.
With a night's worth of chatting, sipping on cocktails {did we mention those are ALSO available?}, checking out the sweet goodies bar, hearing about the occasional Mommy & Me events do-tique hosts and of course pampering under our belt, it was time to unveil our 
Before & After shots. Here are just a few:
" I just want everyone - moms especially - to take some ME time. And I feel like we offer that opportunity." - Gianna, do-tique salon owner.
Did we think it was fun? The smiles on Anna and Ashley's faces should give you the right indication. Thank you do-tique for hosting theCityMoms for our fun - and shall we say necessary?! - moms night out!

{And while theCityMoms do accept paid sponsor opportunities, this was not one of them!}
