Amanda Marsden Salons
Muddy says: one drop-dead-gorgeous Aveda Lifestyle Salon & Spa concept, two superb locations, a glam and super-friendly team and an experience that’s head and shoulders (and back and neck) above the rest. We’ve died and gone to AM heaven.
I’m slightly regretting that I made it this far in my life without having the Amanda Marsden experience. That’s hours – years (not telling you how many) – of missed top-notch pampering opportunities and i’m not sure my body, or my bonce, will ever forgive me for it. With two gorgeous locations, in Exeter and Totnes, don’t make the same mistake, will you?
So what’s all the fuss about? Is it the Aveda concept and products underpinning the salons? Partly. Who doesn’t love a signature neck and shoulder massage thrown in with a blow dry (plus heaps more lovely touches, I won’t spoil the surprise); and who doesn’t appreciate organic, responsibly-made products for the head right down to the tootsies?
Or maybe it’s the team, who really do bust a gut to make a visit fun, upbeat and transformative. Team AM don’t do frowns, you know. But they do do good chats. And coffee.
And then there’s the overall experience. Whether it’s a simple blow-dry you’re popping in for, or a session in the spa (Exeter’s best-kept secret, I reckon), there’s an energy about the place that will lift your mood and make you want to stay and squeeze out every last minute before being cast back out into the real world.
Have I forgotten anything? OH – the results! It almost goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway, everybody leaves looking fabulous. Which is testament to the talented stylists and skilled therapists who’ve been carefully handpicked by Amanda and Hayley. They know what you want and what you need and they deliver it. Go! You won’t be disappointed.
